Buying or selling a home is one of the most significant transactions you may go through, so it's crucial to find the perfect real estate agent that understands your priorities. With the Boise housing market as competitive as it is, Tyler Horn at Amherst Madison Real Estate cautions home buyers and sellers to do their research to find an agent who meets their needs.
There are roughly 15,000 real estate agents in Ada County — that is like looking for a needle in a haystack when it comes to finding the perfect real estate agent. With the current Real Estate status in Idaho, you must find a realtor with your best interests as your partnership’s foundation.
Growing up in the Treasure Valley, Tyler has experienced many housing trends and area expansions. With many homeowners looking to capitalize on an upward trending sellers’ market, Tyler shares his tips to ensure you maximize the benefits of selling your home.
Tyler’s Top 4 Tips for Selling Your Boise Home
- Using professional stager: When selling your home, it's important to depersonalize your home — after all, you are selling your home based on the idea of someone seeing it as their dream home. Using current design trends, Tyler has partnered with one of Boise’s best home stagers and offers all of his client's free staging to help them get top dollar for their home.
- Quality Photos: One of Tyler’s favorite tips is to get professional photos taken. In some instances, buyers will buy a home “sight unseen” based solely on fantastic images. An essential factor is to work with your realtor to find a local photographer skilled in showing off your property’s best features, including evening time drone shots to help your listing stand out.
- Ask Questions: After all, this is a significant transaction. One mistake that happens when selling a home is pricing the house too high. Tyler reminds us that pricing your home over market value can later turn into appraisal issues. Asking your realtor questions about fair market value for your home can reduce the chance of hiccups later on in the transaction.
- Don't Rely on Zillow: Idaho is a non-disclosure state, so going to Zillow to see what your house is worth isn't necessarily accurate. It is crucial to have trust built with a realtor. Your realtor should be able to provide up-to-date insight on what to expect when selling a listing, ensuring you get the most favorable offer.
Having the client's best interest at the forefront of every transaction, Tyler delivers constant communication and education to clients - leaving them feeling confident in the home buying or selling process.
"Whether it’s a $200,000 home or a $2 million home, I treat my clients and the process equally," said Tyler.
In addition to providing clients with information and knowledge about the home-selling process, Amherst Madison has an interactive CRM, selling guide, and buying guide for anyone to utilize. Tyler recommends these free tools to anyone unfamiliar with the home buying or home selling process.
"We want to put sellers and buyers in the best spot, for the most optimal outcome," said Tyler.
