How’s your Zestimate? Today, many property owners use Zillow to determine the value of their Hilton Head Property(or any other property). Did you know that as an owner you can claim your property on Zillow and correct any inaccuracies? As well, once a property is listed for sale, the listing agent can log in and make any corrections to the property. If you need any assistance in correcting your properties descriptions, just let me know.

A New Decade in Real Estate on Hilton Head Island – The way in which buyers and sellers do real estate has changed over the past decade.  Looking forward into the next decade we expect to see:

1. The buying and selling process to become even faster with new online technologies that will speed everything up.
2. Real Estate data will be eaiser to acces via the interenet making the market even more transparent to both buyers and sellers.
3. iBuyer platforms will make it seamless when selling one property to buy another.
4. The buying and selling experience will have less friction for all involved.
5. An agents role will move to that of a trusted advisor that assists buyers and sellers through the process of buying, selling and managing their property.
6. An agent’s local market knowledge will help buyers and sellers “localize” the vast information found on the internet.

At Hilton Head Properties Realty and Rentals we recognize that our clients are the heartbeat of every transaction. While we will embrace new technologies, we will never let go of the trust and relationships our clients have come to expect throughout the ownership experience!

When it comes to selling your home, don’t go “Old School”

Comments Off on When it comes to selling your home, don’t go “Old School” Categories: Hilton Head Buyers

There are only two types of seller’s in our real estate market today. There is the “Old School” seller. These sellers set a price and never change it. In fact, there is a good chance they will change their agents more times than their price. Then there is the “New School” seller. These sellers know their buyer is watching their property on the internet and have no problem adjusting their asking price if there is no activity. Can you guess which sellers will sell faster and most likely for more?

Let’s just take a quick look at the Old School Real Estate Market. In the not so long ago past, buyers could not easily determine how long a property had been on the market and did not have easy access to comps. These buyers had to walk into a real estate office or call their agent on the phone to get additional information. This gave “Old School” sellers a chance at bat because buyers had to call an agent to get more information about their property. The bad news for Old School sellers is the internet changed all of this.

Buyers don’t have to raise their hand in the market today. Buyer’s remain stealth with the internet until they spot a properly priced property with the criteria they are looking for. They have easy access to comps on internet sites including Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com . They can now see how long a property has been on the market and quickly determine if it’s priced right. They don’t even waste their time looking at an overpriced property. More bad news for the Old School seller!

What’s the solution for “Old School” sellers? When positioning your property for sale, if there are only a few showings, no second showings and no offers, there is only one reason. If your property has tumbleweeds blowing around the drive, adjust your value early and often! You will be amazed what happens!
