The Most Important Strategy For Selling Your Home…

House with words setting the right price

When it is time to sell your home, you want to price it to yield as much return as possible. Pricing strategy is one of the most important elements in selling your home.
A market analysis of your home will help you determine value. This involves analyzing the current competition–other like properties currently on the market. I’ll look at properties that have already sold, to determine what people have been willing to pay for similar properties. I will also analyze properties that haven’t sold, some of which are overpriced.

The goal is to price the property accurately for the marketplace. You don’t want to leave money on the table, but you don’t want to overprice your home either. If you overprice the property, you risk having your home sit on the market. Then you may have to drop the price below what you could have received if it had been priced correctly to begin with. Upon seeing a home that is fairly priced, most motivated buyers offer full or almost full price.

When you are ready to sell, I’ll be happy to stop by for a quick view of your home. Together we will price it to sell for top dollar, in the shortest amount of time, with the least amount of inconvenience to you! Please call us at 757-466-1009 and let’s get started!

The Ghent Neighborhood

Ghent: The HagueGhent is a fantastic area! There is always something happening here! On the South end,the Hague is a picturesque body of water with an arching land mass with high end homes lining the shore. The Hague also provides an unobstructed, beautiful view of the Chrysler Museum. Monticello Ave runs the length of the eastern side. The North end of the neighborhood has some interesting boundaries.  23rd street is listed on Google as the last street included in Ghent. There’s Jeff Robertson Park, Weyanoke Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary, Lambert’s Creek and the Mallory Country Club. Access to Interstate 264 is going to be straight down Brambleton Ave. Locals will know to turn right onto Waterside Drive which also heads right out to I264. Trying to head North to Interstate 64 or 564? Your best option is to head up Granby to one of the many entrances. Trying to get to Naval Station Norfolk? Head right on up Hampton Boulevard.

Button with Click here to see homes in this neighborhoodThe Weyanoke Bird and Wildlife Sanctuary was established in 1979 when Audubon members noticed a Purple Gallinule on the land. This was such a super rare visitor to our area, the Norfolk and Southern Railroad gave the land to the Cape Henry Audubon Society. Many birds frequent the park because it’s neighbor, Lamberts Creek is a wonderful place for them to feed. Ghent is park-rich with Jeff Robertson Park, Westover Memorial Park, Graydon Park, Redgate Playground, Yellow Fever Park, Greenway Court Park, Medical Center Park, EVMS Greenspace,  Raleigh Avenue Playground, Riverside Park, Beechwood Park, Botetourt Gardens, Ghent Dog Park, Van Wyck Mews, and Olney Road Park. The residence of Ghent are serious about their parks!

Enjoy large grocery stores, Harris Teeter, Farm Fresh and Fresh Market.  Colley avenue has the Naro Cinema. They play a mix of independent films and oldies.
