Local Nutley Real Estate Agent

  1. Local Market Knowledge –  The agent who lives in Nutley, works in Nutley and has a vested interest in Nutley will be the local knowledge broker and will know what is going on in a town, that agent will also have specific knowledge as to the history of an area and how the town works but will also know the best places to shop as well as the best places to eat etc. but most importantly will most likely know the trend of a towns real estate market and more.

5 Tips When Selling Your Home in Nutley NJ

Selling your Home in Nutley

The purpose of showing your home in Nutley is to hook a buyer. You want NYC buyers to come through your house and be impressed – so impressed in fact, that they’re ready to make an offer.

You’ll have one chance to make a first impression on the potential Nutley buyers and you want to make it count. Focusing on the outside is the first tip. Make sure that you don’t neglect the outside of your home.

Curb appeal can make or break the odds of someone even bothering to get out of the car to come in. If they pull up and see a home with a lawn that obviously needs edging and has an unkempt flower bed, they’re going to wonder what else hasn’t been cared for properly.

You want the outside of your Nutley home to be spotless. Clean the siding, the windows, and the doors. Make sure there are no dirt smudges, no cobwebs and that anything that needs painting has been spiffed up.

The second tip is to take yourself out of the house. That means that you want to take out all the personal stuff. Remove the family photos from the wall or tables. You want the home to look neutral so that the potential buyers can look at your house and picture it as themselves living there.

Everything should be as neutral as possible in terms of personal items. The third tip is to pare down all the extra clutter you see at first glance. If you look around, it’ll amaze you at how much stuff you’ve accumulated over the years.

Some of it might very well be important, but that doesn’t mean that your potential buyers looking to buy in Nutley should see it. When you have a lot of clutter, it shrinks the living space of the house.

It makes it look and feel cramped and smaller. Many homeowners in Nutley get something called “house blindness”. They’ve lived in the home for so long with the same clutter that they don’t even really see it anymore.

But a stranger will always notice. So clean out your house and make the space as big as possible. The fourth tip is that if you have a pet, no one who walks through your house should be able to notice it exists.

That means no cat litter box, no dog to jump on anyone, no food sitting around in a dish. Your home should not have any pet odors. Having a clean house that’s odor free is a big selling point in Nutley NJ.

You don’t want to lose a possible deal just because they can smell your pet’s presence or your pet makes a bad impression. The fifth tip is to stage your home. You can hire a professional local stager in Nutley or you can do it yourself.

Stage your living areas in a way that shows off your home. You can rent furniture to make your home furnishings look good if you don’t use a stager. Someone who knows how to stage a house knows how to play up the best features of your home and knows what to bring in or get rid of to make the entire house appeal to a buyer.

The Real Estate Business, Why You Should Think Twice.

The Real Estate BusinessAre you a New Agent or Are You Thinking About Getting A Real Estate License?

I see it every couple of years when the market gets hot, young eager new agents watch a tv show get excited about getting a real estate license and they go to the classes, start telling everyone they are into “Real Estate” and then 4 months later Boom! They are on to the next thing.

Why do you think the real estate industry has an 84% failure rate? BECAUSE IT IS NOT EASY!!!! THAT’S WHY!!!

Sure the barrier to getting your real estate license is rather easy, I know many people who just have a license waiting to buy their own home or just wanting to do it part time to make a little bit of money, and then there are the other that  want to build a business and a future and actually love the business, and I mean love it a majority of the time but, I hate the whole process.

The Real Estate transaction has a lot of moving parts to it, buyers, sellers, attorneys, cutthroat agents, honest people, dishonest people, flippers, attorneys and so on, throw in some massive emotion and bam! that is the real estate business, oh did I also mention that you have to earn a living and pay your bills at the same time? Yes, the most important part.

There are a lot of Gurus that are willing to take your money and tell you if you do this you will be successful, I am here to tell you it’s all bullshit, the only way you make money in this business if focusing on income generating opportunities, yes you got it working with buyers and sellers and closings deals, these days I am telling agents to focus on their “Brand” because there will be another shift and you are going to see all the part-time people leave the business and the real pros will have to pick up the slack and they will thrive.

No amount of money you throw at marketing and lead generation will fix the problem, now that does not mean you cannot be successful in this business you can, but it takes a lot of hard work and managing disappointment at every level but if you love what you are doing and you do good work you can make it.

Nutley Brokerage Is A First To Implement New Technology

New Technology In Nutley

Matthew De Fede Broker/Owner of Realty Executives Elite Homes in Nutley NJ Announced today that they are the first in the Nutley area to implement the new 3D Technology for all their office listings.

“The Matterport camera that we are now using helps us reach home buyers not just locally but internationally, our first home was 5 Enclosure in Nutley NJ”

The home on Enclosure was on the market for over a year, it was listed with 2 different brokers and as Matthew says, buyers could not get past the curb appeal on the home we had to find a way to get people to see the inside of the home in all it’s details and that is exactly what we were able to do with the Matterport system.

Our first day we launched the video we were able to attract a buyer from Canada, they came viewed the Virtual Tour several times before they put an offer on the home, combined with our social media marketing and online presence it really does give a home seller an advantage in a shifting market. To see the actual virtual tour of 5 Enclosure Click here.
