1. Choosing Mike McCatty and Associates
The experience and knowledge of a dedicated real estate professional can be priceless. A good Broker forms a powerful team with his or her clients that make it possible for them to have a smooth, successful, stress-free sale. Our team is comprised of dedicated professionals all of whom have lived their entire lives in the greater Chicagoland area.
2. Determine your needs/wants for the sale and for your new home
Selling your primary residence can be tricky because you have to simultaneously be thinking about where you would like to buy. First weigh your priorities – selling price is certainly important, but having a quick and efficient sale can often be worth accepting a slightly lower offer. We work with your unique circumstances to establish the best possible price based on your criteria.
At the same time, you should be compiling a needs/wants list for the home you will buy. You will probably have to act fairly quickly when your house sells, so any amount of preparation you can do will serve you well. Ask us about how we can save you money by representing you on the purchase of your new home as well.
3. Prepare your home for showing
Underprepared homes can be sales disasters. Your home will never get as much attention from potential buyers as when it is first listed, so clearing clutter, cleaning, making repairs, and putting your home’s best foot forward is essential. Don’t “open for business” until your home is ready to be seen as favorably as possible.
4. Find out what your local market looks like
Being knowledgeable about your market is the key to a smooth sale. There is no substitute for Mike McCatty and Associates when it comes to local market knowledge. We will show you what your past and current competition has sold for so that you have a clear underestanding of how your home's sale price was established.

Lots of professional photos and online exposure at the most recognized sites are the key to getting a good response for your listing. Mike McCatty and Associates is a leader in the field for its aggressive marketing and advertising. We offer many of the "firsts" in the industry.
By choosing Mike McCatty and Associates you can sit back, relax, and wait for the flood of eager buyers!
