Buyers & Sellers Resources

Whether you're buying or selling a home, the Kable Team is here to help you!

If you're buying a home...

The first step in your West Virginia home search is choosing an experienced, professional REALTOR® who will provide you with information and guidance for success. Here are key aspects of the home buying process and how we can help you!

Know what you need. According to industry data, most Americans spend an average of 5 to 7 years in a home, and sometimes longer. Consider your housing needs today as well as in the future. For example, will your family be growing? Think long-term regarding the number of bedrooms and baths you require.  We will share listing alerts and the latest market data to help you find the ideal home.

Match location to lifestyle. Does your lifestyle include outdoor recreation? You might prefer a home with access to parks or golf courses – or perhaps you spend more time dining out and shopping. When choosing a neighborhood, you should also consider the distance to employment, medical care and schools. Our local expertise in Jefferson and Berkeley County will help you find the ideal community.

Know your purchase power. These days, mortgage pre-approval is very important. Start by getting your financial records in order. Your banker will need copies of your recent income tax returns, bank statements, and paycheck stubs. Your income, length of employment, credit history and down payment funds are factors in mortgage eligibility. We will refer you to reliable mortgage bankers who will provide you with expert financing guidance.

Work with a Buyer’s Agent. Our Accredited Buyer Representatives serve your interests, at no cost to you. We provide guidance about home prices, purchase offers, contingencies and the closing process. Without this guidance, you could find yourself over-paying for a home, or excluding important contingencies that protect you.

If you're selling your home...

The first step in the successful sale of your West Virginia home is choosing an experienced, professional REALTOR® with local expertise. Here are key aspects of the home selling process and how we can help you!

Timing your home sale. While spring and summer are the most popular seasons for home selling, real estate is a year-around business with sales happening every month of the year. In fact, marketing your home during non-peak seasons can mean less competition, and more attention from serious buyers. Consider your personal needs when determining the right time to sell. Remember to allow sufficient time to prepare your home for the market. We will explain the average time a home spends on the market in your neighborhood, and how to minimize this timeframe.

Pre-marketing consultation. We will provide pre-sale counseling and a comparative market analysis (CMA) to help you understand your home’s price position in the market. We will share strategies to help you maximize your home’s appeal for top-dollar offers. We will also explain how we leverage the power of technology to give your home maximum exposure on the market. Our objective is simple – to bring you the strongest offers as quickly as possible.
