Sell Your Home Now in Gilbert with Cathy Carter

The Gilbert real estate market is very hot right now. If you're looking to sell your home now in Gilbert, you might think that a "hot market” means fast, easy money for your home. After all, a hot market means low inventory combined with lots of buyers looking for real estate in Gilbert to purchase. In many instances, a hot market does mean a faster sale at or above the asking price. However, there are a few things that sellers in a hot market need to be aware of before watching the money roll in. The impression in a hot market is that buyers are ready to jump at the first home that comes up for sale and no marketing or real work is needed. Therefore, why pay a real estate agent a commission if the house will essentially sell itself?

Although it might be true that there are plenty of buyers, sellers shouldn't forego the expertise of a real estate professional just yet. You still need a qualified agent you can trust to get you the most money for your home in the least amount of time - and with the least amount of headaches. If housing inventory is low, buyers are more likely to use an agent to locate homes for sale either before they come on the market or immediately after being listed. Most of the time, agents are looking on the MLS or talking with other agents to find new listings for their buyers. To get the most exposure for the sale, you want an agent to advertise your home and take advantage of the multiple buyers that are actively searching. 

When looking for the right REALTOR® to work with, sellers must evaluate different agents based on the services they offer, their skill level and expertise, and their character and personality. Ultimately, the right agent for you is the one who best understands your goals and expectations. With over 25 years of experience, Cathy Carter is the best REALTOR® in Gilbert you will find.

Cathy works closely with other real estate industry professionals and partners with only the most talented home stagers and real estate photographers/videographers. Home staging is recommended even in a hot market. Cathy knows that If you want to attract multiple offers on your property right after listing it, home staging is probably the number one way to make that happen. She will often recommend staging to highlight your home’s best assets, demonstrate your home’s potential, and help buyers visualize themselves living in it. In a hot market, buyers need to move quickly and are driven by first impressions and emotions. Giving your home that "wow" factor will distinguish it from the rest of the pack and give it an even better advantage over other homes that might go on the market at the same time. 

Although professional photography is always essential to the real estate marketing mix, homes with listing videos receive an average of four times more inquiries, according to Inman News. Cathy will be the first to say that a well-produced listing video can make a home come to life in ways that even the best real estate photography can’t! Cathy makes it a point to always stay current with the real estate market, trends, and best practices. She also understands that transparency and frequent and open communication are essential during the home buying or selling process. Cathy is a responsive agent who promptly returns all phone calls, texts, and emails from her clients and anyone else that's involved in the transaction.
