What’s the Best Way to Stage Your Home?

Want to sell your Orlando Home? Get a free home value report | Want to buy an Orlando Home? Search all homes for sale

Here are three home staging tips that will give you the most bang for your buck when putting your home on the market. 

The first is enhancing your curb appeal. I can’t tell you how much of an impact this has on the value, price, and offers you’ll get for your home. It’s the first impression buyers get when they drive up to your home, so amping up your curb appeal is hugely important. This means hedging trees, trimming bushes, and manicuring your lawn or adding some flowers for color. These details are inexpensive and can make a huge difference in your home sale.
"The kitchen and bathrooms are the most important rooms to buyers." 
Second, de-clutter and depersonalize your home completely. You want buyers to be able to walk into your home and be able to envision themselves living there. They want to see lots of wall space, floor s ...

How Our Team Avoids Appraisal Issues

Want to sell your Orlando Home? Get a free home value report | Want to buy an Orlando Home? Search all homes for sale

In a hot market like the one we’re seeing here in Orlando, it’s common for buyers and sellers to face appraisal issues. There’s nothing worse than being 20 days into the process with a great offer only to find out that the appraiser doesn’t agree with the price. Luckily, our team has a few strategies we use to help us avoid this and we’re going to share them with you today:
1. Meet the appraiser at the property. Our agents do this to put a name to the face and bring them a packet that contains every single comparable home that we believe supports the home’s value. Usually, appraisers look for these comparable homes themselves, but a lot of the time when we supply them with a list—they use it.

2. Give the appraiser a list of improvements that you’ve made in the last five to seven years. This will give them a really ...

Are You Listing Your Home This Fall? These 5 Tips Can Help

If you’re going to be putting your home on the market this fall, there are a few key things you’ll need to know first. 
Fall is right around the corner. So, before you move forward with listing in the coming season, I’ve got five things for you to consider.
1. It’s still a very hot seller’s market. Here in Central Florida, interest rates are still down, affordability is great, and there is strong buyer demand. In fact, 40% of the homes that go on our local market are going under contract within eight days of being listed.
2. Don’t over-improve your home. It seems natural to want to put a lot of time and money into fixing up your property before you list. However, sinking too much money into unnecessary upgrades and renovations won’t always bring a high return. Things like decluttering, depersonal ...

Why Sellers Are in the Driver's Seat Right Now

Want to sell your Orlando Home? Get a free home value report | Want to buy an Orlando Home? Search all homes for sale

Right now in Central Florida we’re seeing an extremely hot market for sellers. But what exactly does this mean? 
As you might have guessed, there are a lot of benefits. 
First of all, this kind of market means that sellers have the ability to price aggressively. This all comes down to supply and demand, and demand is at an all-time high. 
Sellers right now are able to price up to 20% over market value because of how few homes are available. In fact, supply continues to decrease to the two months we’re seeing now. 
Obviously, pricing will also be affected by the appraised value; however, this kind of situation is still hugely beneficial. 
Also, multiple offer situations are extremely common right now. They can often lead to the best deal since buyers are being forced to compete with ...

Why Do Sellers Choose Us?

Here at The Nickley Group, we do things differently than most agents. Most agents start the listing process with a CMA, or comparative market analysis. In our opinion, this is a very antiquated way to look at a home’s value. All it does is find three to five comparable properties as a suggestion of where you should price your home at.
A CMA doesn’t take into account supply and demand, current market conditions, and what the inventory is in certain price ranges. The most powerful tool we use to measure value is the market absorption rate. It really takes into account how quickly a home will sell so we can leverage it against the market. We show our sellers the range that the home could sell for, then come up with the price of the home collectively.

"We go above and beyond the average agent."
The average agent gets a listing, takes pictures of it wit ...
