Sell your Home in Maricopa AZ

Before you List your Home

The time prior to putting your house on the market is a time to take a good look at its condition and how it presents itself. You may have a list of small repairs you’d like to make. You may wonder if remodeling will boost the market value. I suggest taking these things into consideration…

  • Make small obvious repairs but don’t go overboard. A buyer will have a home inspection and there will most likely be some items the buyer would like fixed that were unforeseen to you.
  • Declutter and Clean. Try to free up the space in the house so it doesn’t look “lived in”. Take down family pictures. Give it a good cleaning inside and out.
  • How is the curb appeal. Literally take a look from the street and see through the eyes of a potential buyer. How is your landscaping? How about the exterior of the house?
  • Think hard about any remodeling. I am not a fan of doing any type of expensive remodeling unless it will surely pay off. Below you will find out about the costs to sell a home in Maricopa AZ and you will need to be fully aware of the financials.
  • Find a local real estate to help you. You’ll want someone who is a pro at the Maricopa local real estate market… like Jason and Tammy. Contact us on the form above.

Costs to Sell your Home in Maricopa AZ

Selling a house is a huge transaction. There are many things involved and last minute costs and creep up on you. It’s best to be aware of these in advance. So have a look!

  • Commissions. In Arizona the sellers pay the real estate commissions. Even though all commissions are negotiable the typical rate is 6% of the sales price. 3% would go to the listing agent and 3% would go to the realtor who brings a buyer. So, if you sold your house for $200,000 that will be $12,000 right off the bat.
  • Closing Costs. To figure out what your closing costs will be I would say it comes out to about 1% of the sales price. Luckily the sellers don’t pay much in the way of closing costs. However, sometimes buyers don’t have much cash on hand and ask the seller to pay their 3-4% closing costs. Hopefully they will be tagging that onto the sale price to make up the difference for you.
  • Repairs. Don’t be surprised if you are under contract (aka the escrow period) and the buyers inspection doesn’t turn out well. They may ask for a whole list of repairs to be made prior to closing. You can always say you will not make repairs but then the buyer can back out of the deal.

Come up with your Listing Price

The listing price is always up to the seller. An appraisal is the most accurate way to obtain your home value but a real estate agent can see comparable homes that have sold in the last few months and come up with a very close figure. This is called a Comparative Market Analysis or CMA.

The key to pricing your property correctly is to not be too high or too low. If it’s too low you may get bombarded with offers because buyers think it’s such a great deal. This leaves you with not making as much money as you could. If it’s priced too high then you may get no showings and if the house sits on the market too long buyers start to think something is wrong with it.

Market Your Home

You will want to discuss a marketing plan with your realtor. Being listed on the MLS (multiple listing service) is the most powerful marketing because that will allow your listing to be seen to all real estate agents. It will also export onto all of those sites like Realtor.com or Zillow.com.

Ways to Market your Home…

  • Flyers. Your agent can send out “just listed” flyers to the neighborhood.
  • Open Houses can be held to attract buyers.
  • Word of mouth between other real estate agents works well.
  • Online. Spreading your listing through successful social media campaigns and blogging (like this article you’re reading).
  • Virtual Tours – These can be made by us and put on YouTube.

Luckily Maricopa Arizona is a HOT market and the homes sell quick. The average time to sell a home in Maricopa is 2 months. But if planned properly it should be quicker than that.

Sell your home in Maricopa AZ without a Realtor in 5 Steps

Sell your home in Maricopa AZ without a Realtor in 5 Steps

Sell your home in Maricopa AZ without a Realtor in 5 Steps

A little less than 10% of home sellers choose to save some money and sell their home with having to pay Realtor commission.  The commissions can add up to about 6% of the purchase price on average.  If you want to sell your home in Maricopa AZ without a realtor you will want to check out this info.

Get your team together – You’ll want to have a few professionals on hand for when you get started.  This should include an attorney, title/escrow company, a mortgage lender, and an appraisal company.  I’d recommend hiring the attorney to write up the purchase contract and review the documents involved.  The title/escrow company will act as a third party mediator who will also make sure a clear title is transferred.  The appraisal will let you know the value of your home.  If you overprice your home and the buyer is financing the bank won’t finance higher than market value which could ruin the deal.  A mortgage lender will be handy if the potential buyer needs financing.

How to price it – To find out your home value you can search homes that are similar to yours and see what they sold for in the last 6 months.  Try looking on any real estate website that will show you recently sold homes in Maricopa.  Find out the average price per square foot and multiply it by your square footage.  Keep in mind any upgrades you may have that could add extra value.

Prepare your home – You may wonder how to prepare your home for a sale.  Start looking at it through the eyes of a prospective buyer.  Are there weeds in the yard?  Does it look cluttered?  Are there paint scuffs on the walls?  Does it smell like pets?  It’s good to ask a friend for an honest opinion as well.

Market your House – Now you need to bring in some buyers.  You can advertise online on websites such as craigslist.com or forsalebyowner.com.  Put a sign out in your front yard.  Hold a few open houses.  Word will get around.

Close of Escrow – Once you have an accepted offer and have gone through the home selling process you will look forward to the close of escrow.  This is when the deal is done, all funds are sent to the appropriate parties, and once it records with the county you can hand over the key.

I know you want to sell your home in Maricopa AZ without a realtor so I wish you best of luck with the sale of your house.  However, if you decide not to go it alone I’d love to assist you.  I can get your home sold fast and for the most profit.  My website, as you can tell by the title, is very attractive to those looking to buy homes in Maricopa AZ so I can send them your way.  Please contact me at the information below or fill out the form to get a free home value.

Are you thinking you need to “Sell My Home Fast in Maricopa AZ”?  You’ve landed on the website that will provide all you need to know to do just that.  I am a Maricopa realtor who lives and works in Maricopa AZ.  I have first hand knowledge of the Maricopa AZ real estate market.

The average home in Maricopa sells within 2 months.  Many times it’s much sooner than that.  Many of my listings have gone under contract within days.  There are some key elements to consider to make this happen.

  1.  Prepare your home for a sale – Clean up, declutter, make small repairs if necessary and look at it through the eyes of a potential buyer.  We will need to get some beautiful photos to include in your listing as well.  Here are more tips on how to prepare your Arizona home for a sale.
  2. Price it right – This is key.  If you’re too low you may get some offers coming your way but you won’t be getting the most profit on the sale.  If it’s too high you may not get many showings and if you do they won’t be followed by offers.  You can get your free home value here.  Also consider other costs involved.  Usually the closing costs for the seller is 1% of the purchase price, however the sellers in Arizona always pay commissions so that’s an extra 6% on average.  Also, if the buyer has an inspection performed they may request some additional repairs.
  3. Plan ahead – What is your plan for the sale.  Do you know it usually takes 30-45 days to close?  Sometimes 60 days.  Will you need a new home set up before this one sells?  Where will you go?  In some cases you will need a new home set up prior to selling this house.  We can certainly do that and make sure you aren’t sleeping on couches in between closings.

Selling a Home During a Divorce in Maricopa AZ

Selling a home during a divorce in Maricopa AZ or the Phoenix area is a stressful time for all of those involved.  There are many things that need to be settled to make the divorce complete.  One of those things often involves selling your home… one of your biggest investments.  Here are some items to think about to complete the process with as little stress as possible.

  1.  Who gets the house?  This can be complicated, however, if one party can afford the home it is possible they can keep it and buy the other out.  It’s not as simple as taking over the mortgage.  The home will need to be refinanced so the other person involved is taken off the mortgage and deed.  I have a recommendation for a mortgage lender if you need one.  If neither person wants the house it will be time to sell it and split the profits if there are any.
  2. Sell the Home  You can try to sell your home on your own but this will add a lot of additional stress.  It’s much easier to hire a Maricopa real estate agent to handle the sale and be neutral during the process.  Remember to keep this as a business decision during the divorce.  Think with your brain and not your heart.  The realtor can also work with an attorney through the process if you have one.  If you both walk away from the home and it goes into foreclosure it’s going to damage your credit so it’s best to avoid this.
  3. Divide the Funds  This can be relatively simple.  The escrow company can properly disperse all funds to the appropriate parties at closing after paying off all of the home’s obligations and any agreed upon marital debts.

A divorce is an extremely emotional time for everyone involved.  You will want to work with professionals who are sympathetic and neutral through the process.  I am a Maricopa Arizona resident and real estate agent.  My services are available throughout the Phoenix area.  I can assist you in getting your home sold quickly and for the most profit.   Contact me on the form below…
