    Home Sellers Guide

    Selling a home can be extremely stressful. It’s time-consuming and emotionally challenging. It’s not easy knowing what updates and repairs to make to get top dollar for your home.  Not to mention, having complete strangers walking through your home, invading your privacy by opening EVERY closet door and cabinet. By starting the selling process with the right information, you can save yourself time, money, and maybe even a few sleepless nights. Download our guide to find out how to sell your house while getting the highest possible price within a reasonable time frame without losing your mind.

    What’s inside? 

    Get an inside look at how we were able to sell homes in an average of 8 days for 101% of the asking price all while navigating a global pandemic (but, we’re humble, we promise.) We are covering everything from:

    Market Preparation

    We kick off with understanding WHAT specific projects, improvements, and repairs are essential for selling your home. We will walk you through what projects get you the most return on investment, but won’t cause you to break the bank in the process.

    How to Get the Word Out 

    Fun fact, 54% of home buyers said they first found their home online. In today’s day and age, selling a home is a little more complicated than just putting a for-sale sign in your yard. It’s important to have the right tools and knowledge to market your home to your dream buyers.

    Strategic Pricing 

    It’s important to thoroughly evaluate the market to determine the market value of your home. Properties that are priced right from the beginning typically sell for more in the end. If you price your home too high, the home will stay on the market longer. The longer your home stays on the market, the less it will be shown.

     

    “I have worked with Cathy on the sale and purchase of two different homes. Both sold within a few days; one above the asking price! She is professional, knows her stuff, and is always in your corner! If I moved again, I would call her without a doubt!”

    -Pamala Mayberry 

    “We are so impressed with the Ask Cathy Marketing group and all their agents! I was able to trust Shelly Rampetstreiter (our agent) with everything. We had a few hurdles (it’s 2020 after all!) but she was on it and it made the whole experience of buying a house during a pandemic a good one! She was very knowledgeable about everything and knew the people to call when things came up. Also, the others we worked with Sarah Cox in listing it, Kelley Morgan in closing and selling our house were awesome. Great group!!”
