The 1977-founded company, now in the hands of his son, specializes in landlord, tenant, buyer, and seller representation and has the tools and experience to push through any sale. Selling a home, however, is easier said than done. Recent market estimates are classifying real estate as a "buyer's market," or when homes are priced lower than sellers would like to sell them for. Part of this is due to how long houses sit on market, but it is not impossible to sell a home through a real estate agent or privately for a healthy amount of its value.
"Real estate depends on a lot of factors such as neighborhoods, job opportunities, and seasons," real estate guru Gary Richetelli says. "Today's sellers look for angles wherever they can for ways to sell their homes for as much as they can."
A recent article
on North Jersey, a New Jersey-based news website, gives tips for selling real estate during the hot summer months. The article says summertime is the most popular time for buyers to shop for houses. Every little thing matters when selling a home; how well a lawn looks, how cool it is inside, and how recent the paint job is. Staying cool, according to the article, is important to spark a buyer's interest. Sellers are recommended to make sure fans, air conditioners, and windows are functioning properly to make their property seem more comfortable and cool. Buyers during the summer months are usually hot and thirsty already, and showing a cool home to a sweaty buyer is a good way to spur their interest.
The article recommends for sellers, no matter the time of year, to work with potential buyers' schedules. Flexibility goes a long way, especially when both parties have to drive kids to sporting events, work, and find time to travel to look at a home.
"It is important to work with a buyer in every way possible," Gary Richetelli says. "Be on your guard and be ready at a moment's notice for walk-ins and make sure your home is cool, clean, and accessible."
The article says that summers are dangerous times because of insects and pests. Ants, termites, wasps, and bees like to burrow in the cool places beneath foundations and up in roofs, so make sure to spray and keep an eye out for unwanted insects. Summer rain is also a pest of its own; make sure gutters are cleaned out and draining properly. Big puddles in the front yard, or even the basement, are turnoffs for buyers. Rain also causes mold -- the article recommends to get rid of it immediately with bleach or have an expert inspect the home.
It is also helpful to create a healthy, cheerful atmosphere when showing a house. With kids running around, chores to do, and heat all working against a clean house, it is more important for ever for the entire family to realize that selling a house is a big deal. Gary Richetelli recommends homeowners looking to sell should look at everything from a buyer's perspective to look for flaws.
