Friends Old and New

Friends are an integral part of any move. I know this from experience, since my husband and I have moved numerous times. And this latest move back to my hometown of Murphy, North Carolina is no different. Moving to a new town means leaving old friends behind but also making new ones. For us, moving back to our hometown has given us an opportunity to renew old friendships as well as given us a chance to make new ones. It has been an honor and privilege for me to be able to do both, right here in our ERA Carolina Mountain Home office. While Joan Posey-Neumann, owner of ERA Carolina Mountain Homes, is a long-time friend, I have loved getting to know the rest of the team here. Mick and Jane Goebel are two of the ERA team that my husband and I have recently gotten to know a little better. They have been in Murphy, NC for nearly 20 years. They say it’s the best move they ever made! They became licensed Realtors in 2004 and have been Lifetime Members of the Million Dollar Club since 2009. I’m excited to introduce you to them and I can honestly say, I am thrilled to have made new friends with two such wonderful people. Mick and Jane Goebel are kind and generous and hard working –and their clients will tell you that they are great at what they do! So, here, in their own words, are Mick and Jane Goebel, my NEW friends….

Plan of Action

  • Analyze why you are selling – If you understand your motives, you will be able to better negotiate and to get what it is that you want, whether it be a quick sale, high price, or somewhere in the middle.
  • Prepare your home for the buyer – Maximize the strengths of your property and fix up its weaknesses. You want the buyer to walk away from your home with a lasting good impression.
  • Find a good real estate agent that understands your needs – Make sure that your agent is loyal to you, and can negotiate to help you achieve your goals. In addition, they should be assertive and honest with both you and the buyer.
  • Be prepared for negotiation – Learn and understand your buyer’s situation; what are their motives? Can you demand a big deposit from them? Try to lock in the buyer so that the deal goes through.
  • Negotiate for the best price and the best terms – Learn how to counter offer to get maximum value from every offer.
  • Make sure the contract is accurate and complete – Be honest with your disclosures; you do not want to lose the deal because you were lying or diminishing your home’s defects. Insist the buyers get a professional inspection. This will protect both you and the buyer.
