A Personal Message From Chris
Thank you very much for visiting Chris Long Properties. Whether you are interested in buying, selling, or simply talking with a professional about real estate you are in the right place. As a Realtor®, I have access to a lot of very helpful information -- from the value of comparable properties, to the rate at which properties are selling, to the number of properties available in any specific area. My job is to understand the data and use it to your advantage in accomplishing your goals. Even more important, I am bound by a fiduciary duty to my clients and as such, my first priority is to look out for your best interests. When working together I will:
- Listen.... a lot.
- Ask questions.
- Help clarify goals and priorities.
- Create strategies.
- Advise when appropriate.
If I seem like someone you might like on your team, please call me at 559 862-5040 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . I look forward to assisting you!
When Buying Real Estate
When we are working together to buy a home or any real estate, for that matter, I am going to talk with you about several things. First, I will want to understand what you are looking for and even help you prioritize the importance of specific features. Second, I will talk with you about how long you intend to own the property and suggest factors you might consider to help protect the value of your investment. Third, I will want any offer you make to be well received and will work closely with you to position your offer so that it is as attractive as possible to a seller.
When looking for properties you will want to search the whole Fresno County MLS system online in the box appearing on the upper left of this page. Also, you can initate a search of all the Central Valley MLS systems and have emails sent to you regarding properties matching your parameters by clicking here. Additionally, you can set up your own property portal that will allow you to save properties you are especially interested in and may want to review again in the future.
When Selling Real Estate
When it comes time to help you sell, I will want to visit the property and will ask you to show me what you think is great (and no so great) about it. After studying the property, I may recommend a number of improvements I think you should consider in preparing your property for sale. My goal is to help you make the property as aesthetically pleasing as possible for a minimum investment of time or money.
Also, I will perform a pricing analysis that considers what other “comparable” properties have sold for in your area. (This is not going to tell us the price at which we should attempt to market your property, but it is going to help us understand what pricing conclusions potential buyers may reach in valuing your property.) Finally, we will discuss what we believe the property should sell for and develop a strategy for communicating that value to perspective buyers.
