Our Clients Say

I don’t hesitate to recommend Patrik to anyone. He is very professional, very knowledgeable of the Seattle area market, honest, with a cheerful spirit. It’s been great working with him to secure our property in this competitive market. He was prompt in getting back to us whenever needed. He offered good advise at every step of the way and helped us negotiate a good deal. I look forward to working with him again in the near future.

Frequently Asked Questions?

Before you put your home up on a listing and make any other plans that regard selling your home, ask yourself: what is my end-game?. Warneke says, “the best approach is really figuring out the end-game and visualizing where you want to be”. Learn more on our blog.

“Besides the real estate broker, there are several people that you might need to engage with and work with on a regular basis”, states Warneke.

Having a good team with members who work well together will make your home selling experience much easier. We recommend that your team consists of a mortgage broker, real estate broker, handyman/contractor, accountant for tax advice, and someone in charge of staging. Learn More on the blog.

You’ll want to engage in a professional staging service or learn how to do this yourself. Staging can increase sales price substantially. First, however, you need to get an idea of how much you will list for.

Zestimate: To determine the value of your home, use Zillow’s Zestimate– this gives you an estimate of your home value in the market, using a proprietary formula. There are also other great sites that you can use to get an estimate of your home value. Chase Home Value Estimator is one.

We suggest that you check out a few of these sites, get their estimate of your home value, and average out the total of the answers. You might have to update your home facts for a more accurate estimate.

Learn more on our blog here.

You can do a little of your own homework on this via Zillow’s estimating software, but we have several additional sources of data to get you an even more accurate estimate from a Competitive (or Comparative) Market Analysis.

Keep the following in mind about pricing:

Underpricing: Keep in mind that you might have to underprice your Seattle home to the market for attention, and hope for higher bids.

Overpricing: If you wish to go against your agent’s pricing because you believe your home value should be higher, you can. However, if your home doesn’t get attention on the first week it’s listed, it might be hard to receive attention later, should you decide to lower the price.

Learn more here.

There are several online tools that we can use to help evaluate the price and get a very good estimate using MLS data. After your agent has approved of your home being in the market, you can proceed. The best way to list your home is online, as this is where most homebuyers go first.

These are some of the best sites to list your home on:

· Realtor.com
· Redfin.com
· Homefinder.com
· Trulia.com
· Homes.com
· Realestate.com
· Forsalebyowner.com

Learn more here.

You finally have an offer! Don’t get too excited just yet. You most likely won’t be happy with the offer.

To tell the buyer that you’re unsatisfied but are willing to negotiate the price is through a counteroffer. A counteroffer will allow you to accept their offering, reject it, or reject but counter with an offer of your own price.

You will need to know the minimum price that you are willing to accept.
Once you’ve accepted a buyer’s offer, this will be a mutual acceptance.

How will you know if it’s a strong offer? Learn more here.
