Selling Your Home with Deerwood Realty
Listing your home for sale can be incredibly exciting… and incredibly nerve-wracking, as well. Even if it’s not your first time in the market, you’re likely to have a ton of questions about the process:
- What does the market look like? Will I be able to sell my home for what it’s worth?
- How long will it take to sell my house?
- How much work will I have to put into my house before I can sell it? How do I know which repairs or remodels are worth it?
- And most importantly: Can I really trust my real estate agent?
At Deerwood, our mission is to be your partner throughout the entire listing, marketing, and closing process. We know that trust isn’t given – it’s earned, and there are no shortcuts to getting there. We earn our clients’ trust every day through honesty, transparency, and communication.
When you list your home with Deerwood, you’ll never be in the dark about what it will take to sell your home. With hundreds of homes sold and years of experience in the St. Louis real estate market, we can offer expert guidance on what works and what doesn’t when it comes to selling a home in your area.
No Such Thing as a Perfect House
Many potential sellers, especially first-time sellers, approach us with worries about listing a “difficult house”. The truth is, whether you’re selling for a happy reason (new job, new opportunity, new addition to the family) or a much less pleasant one (downsizing, divorce, death of a family member), any home can sell if it is priced and marketed correctly.
That’s true whether you’re listing a small starter home, an older home that needs some TLC, or a luxury home in a gated community. In fact, we list far more homes with “blemishes” than we do flawless homes. That’s the nature of life and the real estate market. In other words, there are no perfect houses – but there is a perfect buyer out there for your home.
At Deerwood Realty, our goal isn’t just to get you to sign a contract; our goal is to sell your home. That’s why all of our listing meetings start with an honest assessment of what your goals are and where your house fits in the current real estate market.
In addition to helping you determine realistic pricing goals for your house as-is, we can also connect you with a network of contractors and staging professionals to help you make minor repairs, remodels, and staging choices that can have a huge impact on your sale price.
We’re Here to Help
There’s no cookie-cutter approach to selling a home. Maybe you’re selling your first home, and you want someone to walk you through the process so you know you’re not being taken advantage of. Maybe you have a new job offer out of the country, so you need to work with someone who can sell your home quickly and without a lot of work on your part. Maybe you’ve inherited Grandma’s house, and you’re more concerned with the family home going to a nice family than you are with the price point.
But no matter your reasons for selling, looking for a good real estate agent boils down to one thing: finding someone who will take the time to understand and respect your needs. At Deerwood Realty, that’s our pledge to you: we’ll take the time to work at your pace, and keep you informed every step of the way.
