The Home Sales Process
What is the true market value of my home? How should my home be priced? How do I attract qualified buyers? How can I maximize my home’s potential to get the best price? What is my next step? Am I prepared to move if my home sells quickly? Realtors, Nancy and Vito Lanzillo can help you navigate all of the obstacles involved with selling your home. The right Realtor at your side can make the difference between a smooth sales process and one filled with unnecessary stress.

Preparing Your Home
Prior to placing your house on the market, Realtors, Nancy and Vito Lanzillo will offer simple suggestions to make your home more inviting such as repairing noticeable issues, de-personalizing and de-cluttering each room, illuminating living areas, and staging the home for maximum appeal. Realtors, Nancy and Vito Lanzillo will then take quality pictures and videos of the home. Serious buyers respect and appreciate a proactive and honest approach.
Pricing Your Home
While prepping your home, your Realtors, Nancy and Vito Lanzillo will research current activity and recent sales in your community and determine a list price that is both favorable and fair. Pricing your home way above valuation may cause it to sit on the market for a long period of time. Generally, homes that sit on the market for longer than a year are viewed negatively by potential buyers. Alternately, pricing your home too low means less money for you, the seller. Realtors, Nancy and Vito Lanzillo use strategic tactics to appropriately find an agreeable list price for your home so that it will sell quickly and positively.

Using innovating marketing strategies, Realtors, Nancy and Vito Lanzillo have the unique capability to showcase your home on a global platform.

Though difficult, it is imperative that sellers showcase their home in the very best possible light.

Close the Deal

The buyer will receive the property title, copies of documentation relative to the purchase, and - of course - the keys to their new home!
