Ulster County Real EstateYou hear it all the time.... Things are not easy in this market. But maybe what you need is a realistic, enthusiastic real estate broker on your side.

First – you want to know how the real estate professional arrived at the asking price. Ask questions, see comparable properties that have sold within the last 6 months.

Second -  Marketing. Where is your house to be found, easily. How does it stand out? Pictures are your best form of advertising. Clean up, paint... Create an atmosphere. Put up a wreath, fill in a flower box... All these things paint a pretty picture

Third – Your real estate professional should know all about the 2010 governmental perks and incentives to help stimulate a sale – from tax credits to interest rates to if a property is even mortgageable and a pre-qualification letter with estimated property tax – all key factors in negotiating a sale.

If you can aggressively go after all of these, and be realistic, you could close by June, a date that is key in this current market.
