Thinking of selling? Your first step should be to find out what your Broward County property value is before putting your home on the market. In the buyer's real estate market we're currently experiencing (where there are more homes for sale than buyers ready to purchase), it's especially important to know how your property compares to your competition. This means not just homes most similar to yours (preferably in the same community) that have recently sold but also those that are currently for sale.
When choosing a real estate agent, be sure to find out how they plan on marketing your home for sale. As an experienced Realtor, I market to a global audience via various local and national real estate websites. I take dozens of photos of your home, pick the best ones that highlight the benefits of your property and include the maximum number of photos allowed on listings in the South Florida MLS. I also create a virtual tour as well as design a professional home feature sheet.
