Should you list your home this holiday season?
Read the pros & cons


"We were able to move forward in an incredibly positive and smooth way for both the buyers and ourselves."

Read Katie and Dan McMurray's story about their experience with Jessica Volkman at the Aaron Thomas Home Team and what advice they have for you.

 

"We wanted to make sure we were selling in a positive market."

Katie and Dan McMurray purchased their first home in 2006 and with the progression of life changes, they moved on to a bigger home but decided to keep this first home as a rental property, for many years, because of the area's popularity. They had checked in over the years to evaluate the current housing market in the assurance that when it was time to sell they could do so during a positive market period.

Why The Aaron Thomas Home Team?

Katie and Dan actually purchased this home with Jessica back in 2006! Over the years Jessica continued to advise them on the pros and cons of selling their investment property. Katie described her appreciation for Jessica's straightforwardness, her ability to make sure you have the tools to market your home in the best light possible and her connection with other agents in the area. She and Dan have also worked with Jessica when purchasing later homes. The last home they purchased was a massive fixer-upper and Jessica assisted them in weighing the pros and cons based on their new home's location and the costs of addressing major elements found in their inspection report.



"Jessica is open to the conversation, she listens to what the family needs."

How Was Jessica Volkman Different?

Jessica was always a part of the decision making process. She started by visiting their home to do an initial walkthrough when Katie and Dan decided to list. During the walkthrough, they explained to Jessica what they had planned to do in preparation on their own. Jessica advised them on what they should and shouldn't spend their time and money on upfront. She also sat down with the couple to do a cost analysis of the market and provided feedback on what she felt was a competitive price for their home and why. Prior to listing Jessica scheduled photos to be taken and frequently offered a helping hand. When contractors needed to be let into the home and the McMurray's weren't able to be there, Jessica would step in. 

The Aaron Thomas Home Team provided digital marketing when the home was listed and their home sold within a week!

Katie's Advice to You

If you're considering selling your home, my advice would be to 

"Find a professional that knows the area very well and is familiar with the market. Listen to what they have to say about how to stage your home when selling and how to put in an offer when buying...There is so much more that goes into buying and selling a house that the buyer or seller even see...Ask questions and make sure you don't assume your agent knows what you want."
