Preparing to Sell your Home
In general, all home sellers approach the task with the same two goals in mind: get the best possible price for their home and sell it quickly. While the details of the process may vary according to the type of home and local market conditions, the prospect of success is increased by following these eight steps.
Step One: Look Before You Leap
You'd never buy a home on a whim; you shouldn't try to sell one that way, either. So before you do anything, take some time to study the local market and current trends. The best way to do that is to schedule a pre-market consultation with a Bev George & Associates, Broker. We've sold thousands of properties, and are uniquely experienced in helping sellers understand what they can do to properly prepare their home for sale.
Step Two: Learn Your Home's True Value
Nothing is more important than setting the right asking price for your home. That's why it's smart to get the help of a professional with the expertise and experience to get it right the first time. That's precisely what you'll receive in a professionally prepared Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) from your Bev George & Associates Sales Associate - at no cost or obligation.
Step Three: Educate Yourself
While we're confident we can do the best job for anyone selling a home in the Edwardsville area, we can do a much better job for those who really understand the selling process. That's why our website offers you a convenient opportunity to get a complete education in home selling and home ownership.
Step Four: Choose the Right Sales Professional
In our minds, of course, the smartest sellers are those who list with Bev George & Associates, because no one can match the pricing and negotiating strategies, training and resources that each of our professionals brings to the job. If you've worked with us before, you can look up your Bev George & Associates broker to contact them. Otherwise, we're more than happy to work with you to find an agent to help you list and sell your home.
Step Five: Use the Right Tools to Reach the Right Target
A quick, profitable sale is seldom a matter of luck. Far more often, it's the result of a sound marketing plan that makes the most of all the tools a Realtor has at his or her disposal. With Bev George & Associates, those tools are formidable - from the collective resources of our area-wide office network - to a relocation organization whose ability to reach out-of-town buyers.
Step Six: Give Your Buyer an Added Value...
Whether your buyer is moving from across the country or around the corner, they'll want all the help they can get. And that's just what they'll get if your home is listed with Bev George & Associates thanks to our exclusive affiliations.
Step Seven: Moving into or out of the Edwardsville/Collinsville Area?

The Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)
How much is your home worth? Should you ask for more? How long will it take to sell?
Your Bev George Associate provides the answers to these and many other questions by completing a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) which takes into account all the variables that may affect the value and marketability of your home. Some of the factors we consider:
- Comparable Property Data: Research of recent sales, as well as homes currently on the market and expired listings, help determine your home’s fair market value.
- Market Conditions and Competition: Economic outlook and seasonal trends, as well as the number of competitive homes on the market, can affect demand for your home.
- Mortgage Conditions and Outlook: Interest rates and anticipated movement up or down affect the size of your prospect pool.
- Location: Proximity to schools, parks, shopping and transit can play a significant role in determining your listing price.
- Appearance: Yes, looks do count. You only have one chance to make a good first impression.
It’s important to note that the CMA process doesn’t end there. We’ll continue to monitor competitive activity and market conditions until the day your home sells.
