I ran across an article this morning with sage advice for real estate sellers: "DON'T TRY TO OUTSMART THE MARKET!"It reminded me of what I explain to my property-selling clients. I don't set prices.

RANDALL (RANDY) ANDERSON
REALTOR®/AgentinGonzales, LouisianaA real estate transaction is complicated. In most cases, buying or selling a home requires negotiations, disclosure forms, inspection reports, mortgage documents, insurance policies, tax/insurance escrows and multi-page government-mandated settlement statements. A knowledgeable guide through this complexity can help you avoid delays or costly mistakes. Selling or buying is time-consuming. Even in a strong market, homes in our area stay on the market for an average of 79 days. And it usually takes another 30-60 days or so for the transaction to close after an offer isaccepted. Real estate has its own language. If you don't know a CMA from a PUD, you can understand why it's important to work with someone who speaks that language. REALTORS® have done it before (in my case, since March 2004). Most people buy and sell only a few homes in a lifetime, usually with quite a few years in between each purchase. And even if you've done it before, laws and regulations change. That's why having an expert on your side is critical. REALTORS® provide objectivity. Since a home often symbolizes family, rest, and security, not just four walls and roof, home selling or buying is often a very emotional undertaking. For most people, a home is the biggest purchase they'll ever make. Having a concerned, but objective, third party helps you keep focused on both the business and emotional issues most important to you. REALTORS® are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®, a trade organization of nearly 1 million members nationwide. REALTORS® subscribe to a stringent code of ethics that helps guarantee the highest level of service and integrity. I'm a graduate of East Ascension High School and Louisiana State University. I grew up in the heart of Gonzales and have resided -nearly all my life- in south Louisiana. In nearly fifty years of sales experience -traveling in 49 states- I have excelled by matching my clients with the best product for their needs. Serving YOU is my business! SOUTH LOUISIANA is my product!
