5 Biggest Mistakes to Avoid when selling your home

Have Questions About Selling?

There are several factors that could affect home values: supply and demand for real estate, consumer confidence in the economy, and job growth. Your home’s actual value, however, is dramatically affected by a combination of local factors that can cause its value to depreciate. 

Nearby Foreclosures

A foreclosed home can bring neighboring homes down by as much as 1 percent in value, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. Additionally, a high concentration of foreclosures in a neighborhood can deter buyers, especially if the properties are not maintained well or are vacant for too long.

Location Value

Homes located near schools, grocery stores, public transportation and business or shopping districts will tend to be in greater demand than houses located on the outskirts of town. On the other hand, homes that are located near highways, airports or train stations can have a negative affect on nearby homes. A 1 percent decline in a city’s population can bring down house prices in that city by more than 4 percent over a three-year period, according to the Research Institute for Housing America. A decline in employment in the city can also dramatically reduce home values, according to the study.

Lack Of Upkeep

A home’s value is ultimately what a buyer is willing to pay for it. Any damage to your home caused by mold or bug infestation, fire or weather damage, sewage problems, or structural problems, will devalue a home.

Trouble From Neighbors

Nearby factors such as hostile neighbors, loud parties, a neighbor’s barking dogs, or rising crime and vandalism can dilute a home’s value. A registered sex offender living nearby can bring a house’s value down by as much as 17 percent, according to James Larsen of Wright State University. Certain structures such as abandoned factories, hazardous waste sites or landfills nearby can also devalue a property by as much as 25 percent, according to Robert A. Simons of Cleveland State University.

A real estate broker is a real estate agent who continues their education and successfully receives a state real estate broker license. Unlike real estate agents, brokers can work independently and start their own brokerage and hire other real estate agents. A real estate agent can represent buyers and sellers in home sale transactions. But they have to work under the supervision of a broker. They can’t work independently. A broker is able to work independently and supervise agents. All brokers working for the supervising broker are considered associate brokers. 

What My Seller Clients Have to Say

My husband and I worked with Mary to purchase our first home. she made us feel very comfortable to ask all kinds of questions(which we did). She walked if through all the processes and referred us to a great lender. she was with us every step of the way! If we ever sell, we will work with Mary again.
by Abby N.
My experience with Mary Markou, was phenomenal. I bought my first home with her last year and when I needed to move to Denver, CO last April, she listed and sold my house. The pictures, advertising, and communication were absolutely amazing. I was floored by how many showings were scheduled in the first weekend. Whenever I called Mary with a question, she responded immediately. I have recommended her to everyone who will listen. My only regret is that I had to relocate to Denver and won't be able to use her again in the future!
by Allyssa C.
Mary was very helpful with several real estate transactions in the last year. She was very professional and was very knowledgeable, guiding us through each transaction successfully. She took care of the stress for us.

I highly recommend Mary Markou to anyone looking to buy a home in AZ. She took wonderful care of my family, listening to all of our needs and wants when looking for a new home and found us our dream home! She was very professional and knowledge. She is the BEST!!!
by Gail C.
Mary Markou is an extremely professional and action driven agent. We had a very short time to find our home in AZ. A job was relocating us to the area from NC. She was very accommodating, organized, and knowledgeable about the Phoenix area. In 3 days we found our dream home and were able to close in less than a month. I would highly recommend Mary if you are looking in the Phoenix area.
by Jennifer and Brian P.
Mary was our realtor when we purchased our new home 10 years ago. She is extremely knowledgeable about current market conditions and very professional. Not only did we purchase our home from mary 10 years ago, she also helped us sell it in Dec 2016. I was extremely impressed with the quality of our video she put together, it was top quality!! I would be happy to have her represent me and my wife on our next purchase or sale.
by Robert J.
Very well organized, considerate and prompt in response. Understands the value of clients and property. She found the best deal for us in Gilbert, AZ. She was always willing to take us in area with her own vehicle. She was able to negotiate with right attitude and value of property.

Mary Markou demonstrated high levels of empathy and professionalism when dealing with us in search of a condo in Scottsdale. We were in town for a short period and looked at many homes that week. After looking at all the condos, some of them twice, we ended up buying the condo Mary originally chose for us from the criteria we told her were most important for us. She did much of the previewing before we got to town so the viewing of properties was well organized. Her focus and enthusiasm made for an incredible buying experience. Understanding our needs Mary found us our dream condo.
by Helen S.
Mary helped me to buy 3 homes and sell 2 homes over the past 4 years. She would take me to see homes at my convenience and would answer my calls even though it was late. I found her not only to be a good agent but a good friend also. She is the best!
by Vy T.
Mary worked with us tirelessly to find us just the right home for our family--and we had quite a list of criteria for her to check off---From previewing endless properties for us and lining up multiple viewings on our short trips out there to make the best use of our time (we were searching in AZ from the Chicago area), to keeping us connected via flexmls weekly so we wouldn't miss an opportunity when new things came on the market. You won't find a more dedicated broker who will get to know your family and your desires and make it happen.
