Testimonials

"Ray handled our property as a rental first, the tenants were interested in buying. Ray helped both sides come to an agreement on terms and helped us every step of the way. He kept us informed which to me is critical! It is a pet peeve of mine when realtors ignore you or only call when there is a problem. Ray was never 'that' realtor! It was simple and unstressful, how all transactions should be! One word AWESOME! Ray was the perfect person for the job, after I spoke with him I was sold!" Dawn Wilcox
"It was an excellent selection Mr Armstrong was the best Agent we have ever dealt with (in12 moves). He is very professional, knowledgeable, personable. He took everything and followed through and kept us completely informed. To sum it up, I just can't say enough good things about dealing with him. He is the best of the best. The type of Agent you could ever hope to have the pleasure to deal with in real estate. It was a very easy transition from listing to closing. We listed on Thursday and under contract on Sunday."

Know Why You are Selling

If you know exactly why you are selling then it is easier for you to follow the right plan of action for getting what you want.

If you are a seller who needs to close a sale as quickly as possible, then you should know that getting the highest price possible is not one of your priorities. It does not mean that you won’t or cannot get the highest price, but it means that the price is not the deciding factor. A buyer who can give you a quick closing time will appeal much more to you than a buyer who can offer you more money but the negotiation and closing time drag on.

It’s always good to know how low you will go in terms of selling price. This will help to eliminate some of the offers that you find simply offensive or ridiculous. Even though you should consider all offers seriously and take into consideration the terms of each offer, sometimes, if you know the bottom line and are strict about it, you can save yourself time.

Once you know what your limits and reasons are, discuss them with your agent so that they can help you set your goals realistically. If you decide to list your home on your own, make sure you do research on the current market, and you get the proper advice you need in terms of legal issues, etc. The key is to be realistic and to know what your goals are so they can be met.
