Though the economy experienced a deep downturn last year, housing values kept climbing higher.

“Home values continue to grow at their fastest pace in a generation and there are no signs that it will slow down this year,” says Kevin Wasie, founder of Exactly, a local real estate company. “Combine that with the slew of buyers looking for properties, low interest rates, and that springtime is approaching, and there has never been a better time to sell your home.”

If you are thinking about putting your home on the market, the first step is to find out how much it’s worth.

To help you get a clear picture of the value of your home—and how to sell it for the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time—Exactly has a six-step process, which includes an extensive 10-plus page custom pricing analysis.

“Websites like Zillow and other online automated valuation models are inaccurate 50 percent of the time—25 percent being too low and 25 percent being too high,” says Kevin. “For the most accurate valuation of your home, our pricing analysis takes into account what is happening super locally, from the local unemployment rate, current interest rates, the macro community of what has sold in your school district, comparable homes that have sold with similar characteristics and the inventory of homes currently on the market.”

At Exactly, the real estate agents help homeowners find the true value of their home—and then expertly market it.

As part of Exactly’s marketing strategy, when the real estate agent does a walk-through of your home, he or she helps you determine what (if, any) work you should do to maximize your return on investment.

Kevin stresses the importance of professional photography, especially in this Covid-era where more people are looking for homes online.

“Our coming to market strategy is designed to create buzz,” says Kevin. “Sixty percent of homes we list are sold in the first week.”

At Exactly, real estate agents handle everything from the pricing analysis and marketing of the home to negotiating the final deal and delivering the keys to the buyer for a $4,800 package fee—instead of a percentage of the sale. Additionally, Exactly advises you on how to set an appropriate buyer’s agent commission so that you are not overpaying.

“Flat-fee pricing is the fairest way to sell,” comments Kevin. “Selling a home that is worth $500,000 takes the same amount of work as selling a $200,000 home, so I don’t think it is fair to charge so much more commission. People should be rewarded for having beautiful homes.”
