Millman Team Relocation

The Millman Team of Keller Williams Realty South Bay is a preferred vendor for several major relocation companies.  We have helped many clients who have been relocated by their employer over the years.  Just recently we sold two homes of clients in the automotive industry and also the Aerospace industry being relocated by their employer.   Quite often before you list your home the relocation company requires two different approved agents to interview with you and give a value assessment of your home.  You may request us as one of the agents you interview with.

The Millman Team has done relocation for over 15 years. We are skilled and experienced in relocation sales.  We work very hard to keep our clients and the relocation company updated.  Our extensive marketing and local knowledge helps your home sell quickly.  Our excellent communication helps minimize stress and makes for a more pleasant experience.

If you are interesting in using the Millman Team or want to interview us all you have to do is request Ray and Jon Millman to your relocation consultant at the relocation company. You can always contact us with questions at (310) 375-1069.

Here are the reviews from our recent Relocation sales:

“Ray Millman knows real estate. We always see SOLD by the Millman team in the Palo Del Amo area so we reached out to him. He sold our home in 7 days. He is busy but always accessible. When he’s not available, Jon covers for him. We have enjoyed working with Ray.

FYI – our home sale was a relocation sale through a relocation company. Jon worked with my relo company and my company to make this process painless for us.”

“Jon did an excellent job helping us sell our home due to a job relocation. Jon kept us informed during the whole process and handled all of the details with the relocation company and everyone else that needed to get involved. He showed great knowledge in his field, knew the neighborhood and the market, and he was professional in his handling of all situations. He laid out a plan that provided us the best value for our home and made sure we had a quick sale to meet our relocation date. We would highly recommend Jon (and Ray) if you are buying or selling in the South Bay area.”

Good Things For Torrance Real Estate Market

FOR SELLERS

Home values are up over 10% from last year giving you more equity. There are still more qualified buyers than homes for sale. This can lead  to multiple offers often allowing you to get more than the asking price. As we are in spring and headed to summer, it is a great time to be a “Torrance – Palos Verdes – Redondo Beach – South Bay” seller. Remember don’t list with Ray and Jon unless you intend to move ! Contact us for a free Professional Market Analysis of your home’s increasing value.

FOR BUYERS

Mortgage rates, while off the bottom, remain favorable in the 4.125% range for conforming up to $417,00 and 4.25% up to $625500. For jumbo loans with a good down and high fico scores, rates are also in the 4.25% zone.  These rates will look like a steal in the future when rates rise. Rates change daily. Want to buy? The first step is to get preapproved with a lender so you know how much you qualify for. Give us a call at 310-375-1069 or email before home values go higher.

FOR REFINANCING

You can get cash out if you have enough equity for remodeling – college education— or other needs. A 10 or 15 year loan refinance can get a better rate and also pay your home off quicker. A home equity loan will often serve the cash out purpose too and give you more flexibility.  If you don’t have a good lender to refinance with call or email  us and we will recommend one.

How to Prepare Your Home for Sale

for sale

Selling a home is listed as one of the most stressful things people experience during their lives. Most people have a lot of emotional attachment to the home as well as their home being one of their most valuable assets. The combination can lead to an anxious and at times stressful experience.

Here are some key steps sellers can take before they sell to increase sales price, shorten time on the market, and reduce the chance your home will fall out of escrow. As a home seller the first impression your home makes to potential buyers is the most important.

Have your home professionally inspected- Not all sellers want to do this but if you have your home inspected before you put your home up for sale you can be proactive and fix things that may make buyers uncomfortable and lead to an unsuccessful escrow. The other big advantage to this is you can provide the home inspection report to buyers when responding to offers. This will give you a better chance of selling your home “As Is” and will make it harder for buyers to renegotiate once they are in escrow since they have seen the home inspection before going into escrow. Fix what you can within reason. Safety concerns are important to be addressed but also little things such as a damaged mini blind, or a damaged baseboard are often inexpensive to repair but will make buyers have a much better reaction to your home if fixed before they see it. Making small repairs such as replacing cracked tiles or having discolored bathroom grout redone can work wonders as well.

Painting- Paint is often one of the most effective things you can do before selling. You may not notice it but if your home has marks on the walls, trim, ceilings etc buyers respond negatively and will start feeling your home needs work. Peeling paint on eaves or trim can make a buyer think a home has structural issues when it really doesn’t. Having fresh paint will make your home look its best and buyers will have a better reaction when they see your home.

Carpet/Flooring- When possible you want your carpet or flooring to look clean and in good shape. If you have older carpet you may think it is just easier to give a carpet allowance. Buyers will see the old carpet and feel your home is old and needs work. In reality your home will sell for substantially less with a carpet allowance than it would being in move in condition.

Staging- Staging can make a huge impact on how potential buyers respond to your home. There are different levels of staging available. We work with professional stagers to help your home look its best. Making sure your home does not feel cluttered or dark is also very important. We also pay for a free basic staging consultation with a professional stager for our clients.

Landscaping- Adding some color to your yard and making sure your grass is green and that trees and bushes are trimmed can go a long way. The exterior of your home is often the first image potential buyers see, whether online or when they come to look at your home.

Cleaning- Before your home is marketed you want it to be as a clean as possible. Often having a professional cleaning done right before the home is listed will make your home show its best.

Termite Inspection Many buyers ask for sellers to complete termite repairs as part of their offer.  Having the termite report up front will put you in a better position to estimate your net proceeds when responding to offers.  It also gives you the option to negotiate for the seller not to pay for termite repairs but you can provide the buyer a copy of the report so they can see what exactly they are agreeing to.

Buyer’s Mentality- The cost of repairs needing to be done is often blown out of proportion in the mind of a buyer. Buyers might think a list of repairs/improvements will cost $15,000 when in reality the same items could be done for $5,000. A buyer might pay $5,000 more for a home that was freshly painted on the inside, even though the seller only paid $2,000 to have the home painted.  This is why it is to the sellers benefit to have these items done before you market your home as it will maximize your sales price and net proceeds from the sale. Buyers are also comparing your home against other homes for sale.  If your home shows better than the home they just looked at it will encourage them to pursue your home instead.

Every seller has a unique home and situation.  We can help you go over your options and you can decide what is best for you.  If you are thinking of selling give us a call.  We would like to see your home first in person and then schedule a seller consultation with you.  We will take the time to discuss in detail all your options and make sure all your questions are answered.  We can also help you determine what your home is likely to sell for in todays market.  We will also work hard to make sure your home selling experience is a pleasant one!

Remember, don’t list with the Millman Team unless you are ready to move!
