The Big Question Question [kwes-chuh n] noun a sentence worded or expressed so as to elicit information

“Do you think your home will sell for the same price no matter which agent you select?” Let’s ask this question about another profession— Are all lawyers the same? The law is the law and it is the same for everyone, correct? And, the law is written somewhere that all the Judges and Lawyers use, yes? Does that mean all lawyers win the same number of cases, represent clients and litigate in court in the same way? They all have the identical license, but does every lawyer have the exact same talent . . . and winning results? Isn’t that the same for real estate agents too? Don’t they all have the same license and work with the same homes on the MLS, buyers, sellers and other agents?

So, does that mean that each agent will have the same results in this market? Let’s see . . .

THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME In a neighborhood of similar homes, why is one worth more than another? That’s a question that’s befuddled buyers and sellers for ages, but the answer is simple. Every home is different. When a home is sold, a willing seller and a willing buyer have just announced to the world the value of that home. From there, other similar homes are benchmarked, but other factors come into play. The most important are:

Location: The closer a home is to jobs, parks, transportation, schools and community services, the more desirable it is. Size: Square footage impacts home values because they’re built using more materials. Larger lot sizes may mean more privacy. Number of bedrooms and baths: Over time, median homes have grown larger. Decades ago, household members shared bedrooms and baths without complaint. But today, families want more privacy. The median home purchased today is a three-bedroom, two-bath home. Features and finishes: Features such as outdoor kitchens and spa baths make a home more luxurious. A home finished with hardwood floors and granite countertops is going to sell for more than a home with carpet and laminate countertops.

914.762.2200

.

The Mark Seiden Real Estate Team

Condition: The closer in age a home is to new construction, the more it will retain its value. It’s perceived as more modern, up to date, and perhaps safer. Homes that are not updated or in poor repair sell for less. It’s a good idea for homeowners to keep their homes as updated and in top repair as possible. Curb appeal: From the street, the home looks clean, fresh and inviting. Crisp landscaping with flowers won’t change the size or location, but it certainly adds charm.

When two homes are identical in the same neighborhood, a higher price may come down to something as simple as views, or paint colors or the overall taste of the homeowner. Valuing a home will never be an exact science, but if you bought wisely, kept your home updated and in good repair, you should recoup most, if not all, of your investment. Turning Goals into Reality

LISTEN TO WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY ONLINE

After 3 frustrating years of attempting to sell our home with other agencies, we hired Mark and his team and had an accepted offer within 4 weeks. We were thrilled with the results Mark and Allyson got. Our home sold quickly and we got significantly more than any of the offers we had gotten in the past. Mark’s team was exceptionally professional and helped us navigate a difficult real estate market.

Trust Mark and his team to work quickly, getting you top value on your home with state-of-the-art marketing systems, strategies and techniques. Mark is also a shortsale and distressed property expert.

Jack Castaneda — 5 ★ We have worked with the Mark Seiden Real Estate Team since 2001, first as a purchaser of our home in Briarcliff Manor and then as a seller this year. Both times, Mark Seiden’s team came through with flying colors. As buyers, he found us the perfect house in a great neighborhood with an excellent school system for our family while quickly selling our townhouse in Dobbs Ferry. Thanks to Mark’s knowledge and expertise, the closing and move went through smoothly without any problems. When it came time to sell my house in Briarcliff Manor this year, we knew he was the Realtor for us. If you are buying or selling any real estate in Westchester County, this is the best company in New York. Jack and Janet Castaneda, November 6

Michael Turco — 5 ★ Mark and the team sold our house and helped us buy our new home. Mark and the team really worked hard and it shows in the quality of work that was performed. Dedication and experience no matter the price of the home. We are the perfect example and I am always telling people our story and experience using the Mark Seiden team. November 21

★★★★★ szavo54 reviewed Mark Seiden 10/20 Helped me sell a home We were sellers and words cannot describe the incredible experience my family had with Mark Seiden and his entire group of professionals. There aren’t enough adjectives in the dictionary. From start to finish it’s nothing but the best service throughout your purchase or sale. It starts with a friendly face and a genuine desire to help; honesty & integrity; local knowledge and how to prepare your home for sale. The process is simple and if you follow it, you will sell your home quickly and at the top of the market. And if you’re a buyer, he will negotiate the best price and terms to save money. The follow up attention is out of this world and is second to none, and the team as a whole, is excellent! I spent 36 years in the corporate world and haven’t seen this type of dedication from Fortune 500 companies and other Blue Ribbon firms. There are Realtors® and then there is Mark Seiden, the “Gold Standard” in the industry. The choice is yours, we couldn’t be happier!

SAMPLE QUESTIONS FOR AN “AGENT INTERVIEW” I’ve been exposed to many interviews and questions over the past 1,500+ seller presentations. So I put together a list of the six most “thought provoking and insightful” questions asked of me. However, there are two questions for you to ponder before you ask the agents your questions . . .

I. Do you think your property will sell for the same price, no matter which real estate agent you select? II. As a seller, how many properties do you feel an agent must sell per year in order for you to feel you have the most experienced and proven representative for strategic pricing analysis, effective marketing and proven negotiation skills? Six per year, 12 per year (that’s only one per month), more? How many sales (success selling real esate) do you feel is minimally acceptable?

Questions for the prospective Agent(s): 1. How many properties did you sell within the past 12 months . . . where you represented the seller? (That agent’s sales only!) S Do not include the office or company sales. S Do not include sales where the agent represented the buyer side only.

2. What are the required, basic legal principles describing how you will represent me? (there are six as required by law by the NY State Department of State and the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors®) S What information is never confidential, that must be disclosed to every buyer even if the seller demands that the information “not be disclosed?” S What information from a buyer may a seller require, that an agent must disclose? S If you bring a buyer to my home is there a conflict of interest? How does that work? S If someone from your office brings a buyer, is there a conflict? How does that work?

3. If you are not available and I have a question or an issue, who may I contact in your absence that will know every detail of my property and be able to handle all my concerns?

4. What will you do to sell my home at the maximum price? S What marketing do you do besides posting on the mls and your company’s website? S Am I guaranteed any type of virtual media? S If someone passes by your sign on my property, how does a buyer find my home on the internet? S Do you do open houses? How many signs do you put out to attract buyers? S What is the difference between marketing and Social Media marketing?

5. What do you do differently than anyone else I can hire?

6. Do you have any reviews or references that are not on your personal or your company’s websites? How many and where can I find them?

Final Agent Evaluation: Wow/Awesome! / Seems better than average / Ok I guess . . . / Just a no 914.762.2200
