Equity Assessment

The first step in deciding what your next move should be is to determine how much equity you possess in your property.

โ€‹

Your property value is largely based on sales of comparable properties in proximity to yours.  We will collect the data for recent closed sales, pending sales, and active listings to provide an estimated price range you might receive for the sale of your property. We will also factor in the unique features that may have an effect on value.

 

This assessment will also provide you an indication of the current equity you have accumulated for your home or parcel of land.  The comprehensive report will help you better understand your financial choices and opportunities moving forward.

Investors &1031 Exchanges

Often, owners of income producing properties are looking for ways to defer capital gain taxes on their investment properties.  If you own an investment property here in Montana, and are considering participating in a 1031-Exchange, rest assured we work with local third party intermediates to ensure the sale strictly adheres to the guidelines outlined in the 1031-Exchange transfer requirements.

โ€‹

If you own a property in another state and would like to participate in a 1031-Exchange to include purchase of one or more Montana properties, we will work efficiently and effectively with all parties to assure a seamless transaction.

Owners of Bare Land

If you purchased land in Western Montana, and your plans have changed, now may be the time to sell.  We have vast experience selling bare land, and are well versed on aspects of land ownership such as water rights, septic approval and/or systems, wells, easements. covenants, as well as city services, and more. 

 

We employ eye-catching drone video and photography to highlight a property's features.

โ€‹

Your land will be advertised on many online sites and emailed to our vast database of buyers who have indicated an interest in acquiring Montana land.

 

We constantly network with other real estate agents, and send them comprehensive information regarding your property, which they can share with their buyer clients. 

โ€‹

We consider selling bare land as important as selling a residential property and offer the same comprehensive services to all our selling property owners.

Out-of-State?

We both  purchased our Bitterroot Valley homes while living out of state.  We recognize the challenges of selling a property here in Montana while living miles away.  As your "boots on the ground," we strive to provide you with constant communication regarding showings of your property, feedback from buyers, offer recommendations regarding the list price as the market dictates, along with reports about the condition of your property.

โ€‹

If repairs are needed prior to placing the home on the market, we have a list of vetted, reliable contractors who can mitigate any necessary repairs.  Additionally, if estimates or improvements need to be made following a home inspection, we work with local providers to ensure reliable quotes of associated costs, and/or needed work is completed as necessary.

What to expect when you receive our home selling services...

Our Promise to You

We craft a targeted strategy that is personalized to your unique needs and expectations.  We listen to your concerns and desired outcome, and put together a game plan that will achieve your goals.  To be your best advocate, unlike some other real estate brokerages, we will never represent both the buyer and yourself in a real estate transaction.  We will only focus on your best interests and avoid any conflict of interest that can arise with dual representation.

Communication

Selling your property is a big decision.  Along the way, you will have many questions about the process and you will want suggested resolutions to  the challenges that may arise.  Our staying in constant contact with you will alleviate many of your stresses and ensure that you are on the path to successfully selling your home or land.  You will receive weekly updates on showings, timely feedback from buyers who toured your property, and reports on new and recently sold comparable listings that impact the market value of your property.  Important buyer contingencies in an offer such as financing contingency, home inspection contingency, appraisal contingency, and title contingency will be carefully tracked to protect your interests and avoid any unnecessary delays in selling your property.

Staging

When we tour your home, we will give you tips on staging your house to appeal to buyers. Often no cost or low-cost changes will make your home standout when photos are taken.  Additionally, if you need to make a few repairs or enhancements prior to placing your home on the market, we have a list of vetted local service providers that are eager to assist our clients.

Marketing

We employ an arsenal of marketing tactics to attract many potential buyers to your property. Like most other real estate agents, we will enter your home listing in the local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) which will syndicate your home or land information to many other home sites like Zillow, Realtor.com, and Homes.com.  But we don't stop there.  We want to give you the best chance to receive as many offers as possible.  Here are some of our proven marketing tools:

โ€‹

โ€‹

Kristin Park, Happy Seller

I highly recommend Heather. Heather's professional knowledge and approach, timely communication, her consultative nature and her understanding us, our property and the market were valuable to us in selling our home. We appreciated working with her and would hire her again in a heart beat. Only realtor I can say that about in my experiences in selling or buying.
