Orlando Real Estate

Thinking of real estate as a career? Check out this article by Emile L'Eplattenier in The Close. There are a lot of things you need to consider when going into real estate as a business. This piece covers a number of reasons why so many people fail in their first few years in the business.

Here in Orlando we have about 300 people joining the local Realtor Association each month, but we only have about 1,000 more members today compared to a year ago. That means we are losing over 200 per month on average. Many of the ones that hang on are not making a living at real estate. If you are thinking of joining our ranks or already knee deep in it, this is definitely a good read. I am thrilled they asked me to contribute, and you can catch my comments toward the bottom of the article.

Nobody Sells More Real Estate Than RE/MAX

Effective marketing is the key to selling your home quickly and getting the highest price. Aggressive, effective marketing of my Client's homes by every available medium is how I've become a top real estate agent in the Orlando area. It's my job to assure that you get as many qualified offers as possible, allowing you to extract the highest price the market will bear.

One of the most important elements of marketing your home effectively is setting the price right. Set the price too high, and you won't get any offers and your home will take too long to sell. Set it too low and you cheat yourself by not getting your home's full, fair value. As an expert in Winter Park area real estate, I analyze the market and set area home prices every single day. I'll work closely with you to assure that everything possible is done to get the highest price, in the time frame you need.

The condition and appearance of your home are also critical factors in getting the best price for your home. I'll personally walk through your home with you and advise you of what you can do to properly stage your home most effectively. Some areas are much more important and more likely to pay off than others! Often, the buyer is motivated by emotional responses as much or more than financial issues. There are usually things I can point out to you that are easy and inexpensive, yet go a long way toward triggering those "buy" emotions.

As your agent, I'll negotiate furiously on your behalf throughout the entire process to ensure that your best interests are protected. Real estate negotiations and contracts can be intimidating in their complexity. Most people have almost no experience in these negotiations. After all, how often do you buy or sell a new house? As a top real estate professional, getting you the best terms and prices in all negotiations is simply part of my job.

I have often joked that I have such an odd profession. I have literally been in thousands of peoples homes, usually when they are not even there. I've looked in their cabinets, poked around in their closets, taken photos of their bathrooms and kitchens. What? Your home may be your castle, but when you put it up for sale, even your shower will end up on the internet. It does not end with the photos of your home, because the purpose of all those photos, measurements, and exposing the intimate details of your property is to attract strangers. Yes, strangers!

Selling your home is all about attracting the most strangers to your property, so they can check out your property in person. These people are guided through your home by another stranger that has probably never been there before. This guide is usually pointing out the pros and cons of your home, and helping the other strangers decide if your home is right for them. This guide makes an appointment with you, through your own guide, so you will know they are coming.

Here is one of the weirdest parts of selling your home. To prepare for the strangers coming to your house, you do everything the opposite of what you normally would do when you leave. You turn on all the lights, open all the blinds, turn the AC a little cooler (here in Orlando), turn on some smooth jazz, and if you have a security system - you turn it off.

Yes, selling your home is so weird.
