Seller’s Info

People selling real estate in and around Asheville, including the many bedroom communities in Western North Carolina, have enough to worry about in getting their home and/or property ready for market and planning their move to a new home. French Broad Real Estate Company takes over a huge number of tasks and details to make sure that your real estate property is properly evaluated, priced, professionally photographed and measured, marketed, negotiated and managed to closing. Whether you have a home, condo, cabin, farm, small or large tract of land, or a commercial property, the agents at French Broad Real Estate Company can help you achieve your real estate goals.

There are so many things to do to finalize a successful sale, and we are here to advise, assist, and assure success. Let’s highlight the major services needed to get the job done.

CMA, Comparative Market Analysis

We help our clients to value their property by generating a Comparative Market Analysis report using current listing price data and past sold comparable property sales. Knowing how to price a home, farm/land, commercial property or condo takes knowledge and experience in interpreting the market data and making proper pricing recommendations. Oftentimes our work begins by helping you decide what needs to be done and what doesn’t need to be done prior to listing your property. Our goal is always to advise our clients based on your goals and objectives. Do you want to sell your property “as is” or do you want to make a few repairs or improvements so you can maximize your profit? We can help you prioritize the tasks needed to get you where you want to go.

Search Assistance to Understand the Market

It’s important that we help you to search on our site to learn about currently listed similar homes in your area. Only by knowing the competition can you make improvements and set a competitive listing price.

A Marketing Plan that Works

French Broad Real Estate Company has a marketing plan for every type of property in the Asheville and surrounding real estate markets. Some things work better in some areas than others so we will provide a specific plan for your property. Real estate in Madison County can be very different from real estate in Buncombe County. Engaging a Realtor® who knows the local market is key to coming up with proper pricing and a good marketing strategy.

Thorough and Objective Home Evaluation

We consider it our obligation to help you to thoroughly and objectively evaluate your home’s or property’s condition and features to properly assess how it competes in the current market.

Proper List Pricing

A property that isn’t priced well will either leave money on the table for our sellers or cause the property to linger on the market. We do thorough CMA reports to help our sellers value their properties with realistic market expectations.

Market Updates

Active markets change frequently. As new listings come on the market and others sell, the supply/demand ratio changes and your price may need to be adjusted. French Broad Real Estate Company provides you with regular market updates to keep you in the loop.

Price Negotiations

We do the marketing and property valuation process with the goal of generating showings to get an offer which will lead to a contract and ultimately a successful sale. We are with you every step of the way during the process and will work to get you the top price possible with the fewest concessions.

Inspections & Repair Negotiations

The negotiations rarely end with the price however. Once the buyer completes their inspection and document examination processes, they often object to things discovered and request corrective action that may involve expense to the seller. We’re here to work with you every step of the way and help you to keep the deal alive.

Contract to Closing Process

There are a myriad of tasks and objectives involved in taking a seller side transaction from contract to a successful closing. We’re on top of all of them to make sure you leave the closing table happy and with no unexpected surprises.
