When you decide to sell your home in the Hamptons Real Estate market, it is important to find someone who will advertise your home, show your home to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all of the necessary paperwork and supervise the closing.  Most Real Estate agents can handle this, but can they deliver results in a timely fashion and sell your home for a healthy profit?

What initial Steps should i take when selling my home?

Whether your are selling your home on your own or you decide to sell working with a real estate professional, it is important to gather some information and prepare your home prior to putting it on the market.  The below steps will help ensure your home is ready to be advertised for sale and will ensure your best chances of getting the results you desire:

  • Know your property facts such as taxes, zoning, square footage, lot size
  • Determine how much you owe on your mortgage and any other debts associated with the property
  • Research the current Hamptons real estate market.  What has sold in your area and what is currently on the market?
  • Walk around the inside and outside of your property and make detailed notes of what needs to be repaired.  A buyer looking at your property will be looking at this and eventually a home inspector will be looking as well.  Determine if and what you will repair prior to putting the house on the market and then make the necessary repairs.  Pay special attention to your curb appeal and arranging your home to feel clean without clutter.

Why do I want to work with David Barkstedt?

I know what it feels like to be excited to sell your home and then be disappointed with no results.  I know what it feels like to have your home on the market with a real estate agent and then the listing expires and you are right back where you started.  I know because before I became a real estate agent, I was investing in real estate and experienced the same frustrations as you.  I still invest in the Hamptons real estate market and know the anticipation of waiting for a buyer, waiting for an offer, and then negotiating a final price.

I have a pulse on the Hamptons Real Estate market as a real estate professional and also as a property owner myself.  I know how to get results.  Often times buyers don’t visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience – which can help you maximize your profit upon the sale of your home.  Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that’s sold fast.  Buyer psychology is an important ingredient during the sales process.  People buy based on emotion and then back their emotion up with logic.  Understanding the Hamptons real estate sales cycle and human psychology have been and continue to be one of the cornerstones of my success.  I am fully committed to selling your home by leveraging my access to a Global network of strategic partners and implementing the tools that go far beyond traditional advertising methods.
