Sell Your Home
Selling your home can be a daunting task, but with an experienced sales agent, it can be a very smooth process.
Our agents explain the entire process of preparation, listing, sale, and closing on the sale of your property.
We also complete a free Competitive Market Analysis to provide you with the most accurate and recent sales activity
in the area to help you decide on your asking price.
The advertising of your property will be appropriately coordinated to have maximum impact and showings will be
set up at your convenience. In addition, all showing agents will be contacted for feedback from their clients
regarding your property.
With your criteria and direction, contract negotiation and closing details will be handled expertly, and you
will be involved every step of the way.
Conducting a Comprehensive Market Analysis
A Comprehensive Market Analysis (CMA) is determining an appropriate selling price of a home by finding out
the highest price the market will bear. Access Realty provides a free CMA for every home to be sold by
reviewing comparable properties that have been recently offered for sale in your neighborhood. The CMA is
based entirely on homes that are similar to yours in size, style, and features.
We carefully study similar properties that are currently listed, have recently sold, have sales pending,
and failed to sell. This review of comparable properties and the terms under which they are/were offered allows us
to develop a clear picture of the potential market for your property.
Marketing Your Home
Access Realty appropriately markets each home using some or all of the following resources:
- Homes and Land magazine (printed and online)
- Real Estate Guide
- Greenville Journal
- Greenville News (printed and online)
- Signage and custom flyers
- Open Houses
