Seattle is a hotbed for real estate tech. We are home to popular real estate sites like Zillow and Redfin which have changed how people shop for homes. Many people ask us, "How is Faira different than Redfin and Zillow?" There's a big difference and I'll explain.
As part of Faira Premium, we are now offering a same as cash guarantee. When offers are received, they may be cash or subject to financing. Sellers sometimes miss the opportunity to take a higher offer because they prefer to take a lower cash offer. If you use this program, you can now accept an offer subject to financing with high confidence, as if it was a cash offer. This levels the playing field and may result in stronger competition to give you the best price while improving your peace of mind no matter what offer you take.
How do I pick the list price?
This is a question we hear a lot. First, let's get the elephant out of the room. Sellers do not determine the sale price of a home, buyers do. What sellers can do is adopt a strategy so you can find the buyer who values your home the most. The sellers may decide not to sell the home, but they can’t directly determine the purchase price of the home.
We set out with the goal to reduce complexity and increase transparency for home buyers and sellers. With over 80 successful sales in one of the hottest real estate markets, Seattle, we have saved home sellers over two million dollars since we started just over a year ago!
If you want or need to sell your home between November till February, here are a few questions you possibly have struggled with:
- Will someone want to buy now (it’s cold/wet/icy/snowy)?
- Does it make sense to wait?
- Will I make more money on my home if I wait?
Selling a home is a big deal. It’s also a notoriously complex, stressful and expensive process.
At Faira, we've reinvented the experience so it's simple, modern and transparent. It's also cheaper: there is no 6% commission. In fact, using Faira is completely free for sellers.
With all the preparation of putting a home on the market curb appeal, or more specifically, landscaping and outdoor maintenance, can end up as a less than impressive afterthought. Throwing a few colorful perennials in the midst of overgrown shrubs and lackluster edging can come off as more of a last minute all-nighter than a cultivated piece of land. An integral part of curb appeal, a well-maintained piece of property can increase your home's perceived value by as much as 10%. Here's how to get it ready to sell...
