Understanding the nuances of your neighborhood is important when considering the sale of your Seal Beach home. Some of the more obvious things to take into consideration would be your homes proximity to a freeway, airport or school. But selling your home for top dollar means understanding subtleties that may be less obvious.
For instance, there are certain streets in Old Town Seal Beach that experience less parking impaction then others. Some streets on the Hill are known for having fast moving vehicles which may be a deterrent to families with small children. Particular streets nearest the beach get choked with summer traffic while others do not.
Each of these details effect the value a potential buyer would put on your home. People in the market to buy a Seal Beach home have never had such unparallelled access to information thanks to the internet. The one thing the internet can’t provide them with is information on the subtleties that only a neighborhood expert would understand.
You are considering selling your home on Seal Way and decide to interview agents. One is from out of town and does not know that soon the sand berm will be put up. Because of this, the agent botches the marketing of your property with photography that misrepresents the ocean view. How much could this error cost you?
Another home owner on the 900 block of Ocean Avenue decides to sell their home. This owner also interviews several agents and selects the neighborhood expert. This agent skillfully markets the home, highlighting the benefits of this unique location with professional photography and video. A buyer for this home will have a front row seat to Seal Beach’s most cherished events, the annual Christmas parade, classic car show, health expo, fish fry, summer concerts, arts & crafts festival and the list goes on.
Considering the effect this information could have on the value of your home, there seems to be relatively few websites to help Seal Beach residents until now. A local website that provides important details such as what your neighbor’s home sold for and number of days on the market is www.SealBeachHomeValues.com. Having this information is an important first step before contacting your neighborhood expert for help selling your Seal Beach home.
