Joseph Bedodo Residential & Commercial Real Estate

For Sellers

Selling your property?

Here is how I can help you....

Inspections--I will start by ordering property inspection reports which will give you an idea as to what needs to be improved in the property.

Market Analysis--I will obtain sales comparables and analyze the current market conditions of your neighborhood and determine the list price of your house.

Highest Return--I will help you to decide on whether it is feasible to do the improvements based on the type of market we are in and the list price we have obtained.

Marketing--I will then list the property on the Multiple Listing service (MLS) and market the property by exposing it to all of the REALTORS and real estate agents. I will also attend all of the REALTOR meetings in the area and personally market the house to all the REALTORS that attend the meetings. If it is not an inconvenience than I will also put the house on the broker tour so that the local REALTORS can have firsthand knowledge about the availability of the house. Most REALTORS attending the broker tour are also willing to give feedback to the seller as to the pricing and the presentation of the house. I have a list that consist of about 2000 agents and their email addresses which will receive emails from me with the listing information, in case they have a buyer. On top of all these, I have a few other marketing activities that will expose your house to just about every possible buyer that may be looking for a house like yours. I will go over those during our listing presentation.

Communication--After the acceptance of an offer, I will be in constant communications with the buyer’s agent to assure that the buyers will have their loan processed and remove applicable contingencies on time. I will manage the escrow until you hand the keys to the new owner.

Recent Home Sales--What are homes selling for on your street? Feel free to contact me to find out what neighborhood homes are selling for, free of charge, or to receive a more detailed analysis of the value of your home.

Getting the Highest Price for Your Home --Curb appeal is key and could make a difference whether people stop and take a flyer, or drive right by. Here are a few tips to increase the curb appeal of your home. Staging your home is important. Many buyers will stay in your home longer if it's staged appropriately. I have compiled some ideas to present your home in the most effective manner.

Under Local Resources Tab you can access information on tax benefits for first time home buyers, proposition 60 & 90, how to report moving expenses homeowners deduction information. The Buyer and Sellers Guide under Local Resources will also give a more detailed idea of what and who is involved in a real estate transaction.

Closing Costs to Expect:

  • Title insurance fees depend on the sales price of the home.
  • Broker's commission is a full-service fee and will cost anywhere between 5% to 6%.
  • Local property transfer tax, county transfer tax, state transfer tax, and state capital gains tax are the charges that you'll pay for the privilege of selling your home. Credit to the buyer of unpaid real estate taxes for the prior or current year are variable and depend on when you close and when your taxes are due.
  • FHA fees and costs are all fees are now negotiable between an FHA buyer and seller.
  • Home inspections fees are in some circumstances paid for by the seller and include pest, radon and other inspections.
  • Miscellaneous fees can accrue from correcting problems noticed during the home inspection.
