Reviews From South Lyon Clients

Megan is a hard working, caring and professional! We moved out of state and had to sell during the slowest time of the year. She went above and beyond her call of duty for us and was available anytime we needed her. I so appreciated her optimism and knowledge for negotiating. We were able to trust her with our past so we could focus on our future.

Tracy is extremely knowledgeable, easy to deal with and is always available. She’s not afraid to tell you up front what the market will tell you later if you don’t follow her advice (which I learned). She’s also very professional with outside realtors, a good listener and highly experienced. I’ve used her twice with strong success and will undoubtedly use her in the future. I would highly recommend.

Selling a South Lyon Home

The first and most obvious consideration is where to set the listing price at. It’s important that this price is low enough to attract buyers yet high enough to provide the seller a solid value for the home. In South Lyon, the current median home sale price little over $325,000 with a relatively flat projected pricing forecast.

Other considerations include things such as marketing, legal considerations, updates to tax codes, real estate laws, etc. Most individuals looking to sell their home are not fully aware or up to date on this information, which can cause them to miss out on opportunities to maximize the value of their home. However, working with an experienced realtor who is an expert in not only these issues but the details of the area will help maximize the value of a home and is a hugely beneficial partner to have in the real estate sales process.
