Home sales in Redding and the greater Shasta region were off pace in November. That’s a typical pattern. And home sales often get slower yet in the period between Thanksgiving and New Years. Just like the chill in the weather.

We definitely feel it. That said, we often remind sellers that you don’t know where or when your buyer will arrive. The Redding area home market flow is random enough that you may be equally likely to sell any time of year, despite the seasonality cycles.

Just a reminder that we list homes for 1%. Listing services start at $495. We are a different business model than other brokerages around here. We offer no-compromise home sales services, while letting sellers keep more of their money. We have a great track record of success, and real testimonials from real people. Who do you know that needs to sell their home in the Redding area?

Redding couple saves over $12,000 selling their home

We break it down below. These are real people and actual results. We listed and sold the home of retiring Simpson University President Larry McKinney using our Flat Rate listing plan. He listed the home for $399,900, and accepted a cash offer of $408,000 within 2 days. We ultimately received 5 great offers in those 2 days from agents in our MLS.

Under our All Inclusive Listing Plan (6% commission), it would have cost Larry:

3% to Listing agent and 3% to Buyer’s agent = $408,000 X 6% = $24,480

 Net to seller = $383,520

Using our Flat Rate Plan, Larry paid:

$495 to be listed in our MLS
$95 for Professional Photography and Video Tour
$95 for use of MLS Digital Lockbox
.0035% of purchase price for helping prepare disclosures, accepting and negotiating offers, and closing documents. Seller side total = $2113

Larry then chose to offer the buyer’s agent 2.5% for bringing an offer (all entirely negotiable)
Buyer side commission 408,000 X 2.5% = $10,200

Total to sell with The Address Realty = $12,313

Net to seller = $395,687

Difference between our All Inclusive (6%) and Flat Rate plan = $12,167! 

No wonder Larry was pleased with the results! We can sell your home too. Whether you choose our All Inclusive Plan or our Flat Rate Plan:

Wow, that was quick. This is a really nice house, though.
We received 5 offers over the weekend.

We helped make it look fabulous online. We feel sure that online presence was a factor. Even after looking at it in person, a modern buyer goes back to the online images to consider if they want to offer and how much. So it needs to look great online. Watch the brief tour video, and be sure to select the Hi-Def setting for full effect.

We can’t guarantee the same results for your listing. But we have the proven sales skills to market your Redding area house in the best possible light.

Home inspections crucial part of any home sale

We recommend to our sellers that they have a home inspection prior to listing. That’s not common in the Redding market.

The Address Realty recommends home inspections prior to sale

Tim Reaves of TWR Home Inspections leaves no space un-examined.


Here’s why it makes sense:

1. You’ll know in advance what issues will probably come up later on, in Escrow.
2. Once in Escrow, any issues become MUCH more problematic and harder to manage.
3. You will have an opportunity to deal with problems before a buyer can see them.
4. Certified local inspector/vendors reports are valid no matter who paid for them.
5. Inspections become part of your Disclosure Package and reassure buyers.
6. Inspection reports can be posted in the MLS for further buyer reassurance.
7. You will look smarter and more meticulous, increasing the value of the house.

Tim is always very thorough. We have several different inspectors with whom we have had good results in the past and we’ll give you our list of vendors as part of the services we offer to sellers. You don’t know what you don’t know, as they say.

Redding needs homes! We are short of homes for sale

The headline this morning in the paper fairly screams it out: We need more homes for sale in the Redding area. We have home buyers, but no homes to sell them.
Record searchlight says fewer homes for saleEveryone is feeling the pinch. If you, or anyone you know is thinking of selling, perhaps wondering when the market would turn in their favor, now is that time.
In view of this situation, Erin and Skip at The Address Realty are running a listing special. Just $495 to list your Redding area home in the local MLS. Sellers can use this plan to save literally thousands of dollars on the listing side of selling a home. We are hoping this spectacular money saving incentive will bring up some inventory we can sell to our buyers. Keep more of your equity on the listing side. We just need your house to sell to our many eager buyers!
