What does it mean to be a "Neighborhood Expert"?

Posted by Matt & Shalin Caren on Tuesday, July 26th, 2016 at 12:39pm.

We find that as agents, focusing on the plan and strategy to market and promote a home to buyers and their agents from all over the state and country will give your home the greatest chance of selling for the most money in the least amount of time.  We understand the appeal of hiring a so-called “neighborhood expert”, but unless your expectation as a seller is to find the next buyer for your home from within your currently community, the geographical specialization a neighborhood expert offers may not in itself get your home sold as you would expect.  These days, with the internet available to every buyer, seller and agent, everyone is able to be an expert in any area they would like in just about 20 minutes or less.

Many sellers think that a neighborhood expert will be more capable of properly pricing their home, however the value of a property (in most cases) will be most heavily dependent on the recent sale activity in and around the community which all agents (and non-agents alike) have easy access to at any time.  For us, pricing also has a great deal to do with the seller’s specific goals and timeframe as well as the direction the market is heading based on the rate homes have been selling in the area vs. how many homes are currently available.

If you would ever like to discuss salability of your home or to hear what we offer above and beyond a sign in the yard and advertising the listing on the MLS, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at (602) 777-MOVE or email us at Info@TheCarenTeam.com anytime.
