Seller's Guide

Put Your Money to Work for You and Protect Your Investment

The Monterey Peninsula is home to some of the most beautiful real estate on the west coast. Such spectacular properties deserve only the best representation available. Hardly any other Realtor® is as qualified as Michelle Hammons to handle the intricacies of sales such as these. Ranked within the top two percent of Monterey County’s Realtors®, those who hire Michelle are not only hiring the best but also enlisting the aid of the extensive and experienced team at Compass


First and Foremost, Representation Is Essential

First things first - proper representation is a must. Real estate transactions are not a single-document type of occurrence. There are several moving parts and many intricacies regarding pricing within hidden aspects, and you leave yourself open to legal liability if you make any mistakes. The right Realtor® can make a tough market easier to navigate, bring new light into your home so it’s shown in ways you may not have previously thought of, and can actually put more money in your pocket. Countless studies have been conducted, and the numbers don’t lie. Those who enlist the assistance of a licensed real estate professional actually end up selling their home quicker and higher price than those who try to go it alone.


Proper Preparation

Now that you’ve made the right choice to hire Michelle, she will get to work on prepping your home to sell. Upon first meeting, Michelle will offer a thorough price analysis on your home, based on the recent sales of other similar homes nearby. While pricing your home correctly is the most important preliminary step, the physical transformation will be just as essential. Michelle will make appropriate recommendations regarding the appearance of your home to increase its appeal to prospective buyers. These recommendations may range from something as simple as decluttering a few rooms to staging and furnishing empty spaces which may need a little help.


Compass Concierge

As part of the Compass family, all of Michelle‘s clients are given access to their exquisite Concierge services. For sellers who may need something more than a simple deep clean, short-term interest-free construction loans are available at no upfront cost. Michelle and her Compass family thoroughly believe in going the distance to obtain the highest sales price possible. Sometimes, a few kitchen and bathroom updates can do wonders and add tens of thousands of dollars to your home's worth. Concierge covers an extensive list of services, from HVAC tune-ups to repainting, to appliance replacement and full kitchen remodels, with the loan not being due until closing day.


The Clear to Close

Once your home is ready to go, Michelle will hire the best photographers and videographers to create digital campaigns and bring your home to life. Smart social media postings, YouTube videos, targeted ad campaigns, and consistent emails to her extensive collection of qualified buyers and local brokers are just the beginning. A vast network, longstanding community connections, and an intricate knowledge of the contract and region-specific addendum which may be needed (think waterfront-specific paperwork) have propelled Michelle to the top of her industry to ensure sellers stand out among the competition and are ultimately successful in the quest to sell their home quickly, efficiently, and for the most money possible.
