Maria DiCarlo - REALTOR®
Choosing the best real estate agent to represent you is a very important step in the selling or buying of your home. You want to hire a professional who is well versed in all aspects of real estate, knows his/her market well, and will strive to build a relationship with his/her client that is based on trust and sincerity as well as effective and timely communication.
My primary goal as a Realtor is to make my clients' real estate experience satisfying, enjoyable and stress-free. Additionally, as a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, I strictly abide by their Code of Ethics. I take great pride in building mutually successful relationships, and in fact, most of my business is built on the referrals of my pleased home buyers and sellers!
Selling Your Home
Whether you're selling your home in Wakefield MA, or any of the other surrounding communities in Middlesex County or Greater Boston, it is critically important that you have a good understanding of the current market value of your home. This is where I can help! I can provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis for your home to show you how your home compares with others that are currently on the market or have recently sold.
Determining the right listing price is extremely important - if the price is too high, you'll lose those buyers who are looking in the price range where your home should be. If you're subsequently forced to lower your price, you've already lost exposure to a large group of potential buyers. A knowledgeable realtor is always in touch with market trends and can help you set a listing price that will bring interested and motivated buyers to your home.
I can also give you suggestions to make your home more saleable - sometimes simple cosmetic changes can drastically change the appeal of your home and cost next to nothing. Other changes may possibly involve an investment, but it's likely that the cost will more than pay for itself in the resulting sales price or in the timely sale of your home.
Buying Your Home
Finding the right home can be an exciting and rewarding experience. The first thing that we'll discuss is what your needs and preferences are for your new home, for example: Where do you want to live? What kind of home - size, style, price, etc - do you want? What's important to you about the community in which you will live? What are your requirements for when you need to move?
I've helped many clients find homes in the Greater Boston area. I've also worked with many first-time home buyers so I can anticipate many of the questions and concerns that you may have about purchasing a home for the very first time!
