Are you considering relocating, in need of more space, or looking to downsize?
Whatever your reason may be for selling your Chattanooga home, conducting a home valuation is an excellent starting point. Begin by taking a walk around your house, envisioning yourself as a prospective buyer seeing your home for the first time. Pay close attention to the initial impression when driving up and entering through the front door, as well as when walking out into the backyard. Make a note of any noticeable aspects, such as a dead plant, broken door, or burned-out light, that might catch the buyer’s attention.

Leveraging our professional knowledge of the local market, we will conduct thorough research on your home and its surrounding properties in order to prepare a comprehensive Current Market Analysis (CMA). During our meeting to review the CMA, our agent will tour your home, discuss your desired outcome for the sale, guide you through the process and next steps, and address any questions or concerns you may have. Once our agent has gained a complete understanding of your home and selling requirements, they will determine the listing price that will attract qualified buyers and devise a personalized marketing strategy tailored to your specific needs and objectives.

Frequently Asked Questions About Selling a Home
Whether we’re out in the community, among friends and family, or meeting new clients, there are certain questions that consistently arise when it comes to selling a house. Here are the top 8 questions we frequently encounter:
Contrary to popular belief, selling your home on your own does not necessarily result in cost savings. In fact, homes sold by a real estate agent tend to fetch higher prices and sell more quickly. Moreover, consider the value of your time spent on tasks such as preparing documents, being available for showings, addressing inquiries, qualifying buyers, and more. Additionally, there are marketing expenses to consider, including signage, professional photography, Matterport (cutting-edge virtual tour technology), and time-tested marketing campaigns.
While online home valuation tools like “Zestimate” can provide a starting point, they should not be considered definitive. We understand that many clients have already utilized such tools; however, we have observed instances where their estimates differ from the findings of our thorough Current Market Analysis (CMA). These online tools do not account for crucial factors such as the condition of your home, any updates or renovations you have undertaken, or the specific location—be it a highly sought-after area like Signal Mountain or the desirable Reunion Community.
The most accurate and reliable home valuation you will receive is the one you review with a KW-Jay Hudson Homes agent after they have personally toured your home. This in-person assessment allows our agent to consider all the unique features, upgrades, and local market conditions that contribute to determining the true value of your property.
No. Pricing your home higher than its market value could potentially lead to a lower final sale price compared to if it were priced 10% below its value. For instance, when a home is priced 10% above its actual worth, only around 30% of potential buyers would consider it. Furthermore, if the home fails to meet their criteria, the next logical step would be to reduce the price.
On the other hand, if you price your home 10% below its market value, approximately 70% of potential buyers will be exposed to it. This can generate a sense of excitement and competition among buyers, potentially resulting in multiple competitive offers. Ultimately, this increased interest can drive up the final sale price, potentially exceeding the original market value of the property.
When you’re ready, families are constantly seeking opportunities to relocate and buy a new home. Nowadays, the timing of the year is not as crucial as it used to be, as there are compelling reasons to list properties throughout the year. However, in terms of the current real estate market, the present moment is highly favorable. We are currently experiencing a housing shortage that is expected to persist for at least another four years. Nonetheless, with interest rates on the rise, the pool of potential buyers is gradually decreasing.
That depends on you, your home, and your needs. Once you and your home are ready to schedule photography and start the listing process it usually takes 2-3 weeks to list it.
Featuring a minimal selection of furnishings, the home tastefully decorated to provide buyers with a sense of how they can arrange each room and utilize the available space is best. The furnishings strike a delicate balance, offering inspiration without overpowering the overall ambiance, allowing prospective families to envision themselves in the house.
To begin, conduct a comprehensive evaluation of your home, considering both its physical condition and financial aspects. Take a stroll around the property, putting yourself in the shoes of a potential buyer encountering your home for the first time. Be particularly mindful of the initial impression created when approaching the house, stepping through the front door, and venturing into the backyard. Take note of any noticeable issues that can be easily addressed, such as a dirty path to your front door, a scrape in the wall, or a burnt-out light bulb, which might capture the buyer’s attention. Prioritize meeting with our agent for a complimentary home valuation and discussion of any significant repairs or improvements before embarking on them.
The best approach will vary depending on your specific requirements. If you need to sell your home as is and prioritize a quick sale, it would be beneficial to inquire about the offer provided by the company. However, we encourage you to contact us as well. We offer a complimentary home valuation and will discuss your specific goals for the sale of your property. Are you willing to invest time in the process and aim to maximize your financial returns? Even if you need to sell as is, we can assist you by leveraging our extensive investor database or listing your property on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), ensuring it reaches a wide audience of potential buyers. Additionally, we can market the sale as “As Is” to cater to the specific needs of your situation.
