Once listed is the home a house or a product for sale?
Gang, once you decide to list your home for sale with us here at the Kima Real Estate Group the home becomes a product for sale. No different than a can of Campbell's soup or Weber grill or a Honda Accord. The reality is that yes, selling a home can is often is emotional. For the seller. It is the responsibility of my team to assist you in seeing that if you truly want to sell it then it becomes a product. The labeling, the packaging, the marketing, the design, and the presentation have to be great. What does this mean? Clean it, fix it, stage it and make it available!
Repeat buyers are looking for homes in great condition. Forty nine (49%) of them buying a home in excellent condition and another 40% buying one in good condition. This means it needs to be repaired, painted and decorated to attract the largest amount of potential buyers.
Many do not want to spend any money to sell the home because they feel they will not enjoy the benefits of these upgrades. Often times it is these sellers that continue to make mortgage payments for months that eventually total more than what it would have cost them to make the updates and sell the home.
Most common updates include:
44% Paint 25% Flooring 20% Lighting Fixtures So get the home ready and make it a product. You'll be glad you did!
Mmmmmm Mmmmmmm Good!

When it comes to providing the utmost in personal service to his clients, Peter Kima is on the cutting edge. This family man's demanding work ethic was passed on from his parents. His mother, a first generation German-American, forged a new life in a strange country. His father, who has not missed a day of work since 1972, led by example. Peter does not rest until he's done everything in his power to help you achieve your goals. As a husband and a father, his understanding of the importance of a family's home is reflected in his every move.
When Peter is not helping one of his clients, he can be found volunteering his time running a charity Lobster Bingo event, cooking burgers at the local Fire Station to benefit the children in the community, delivering dictionaries to every 3rd grade student in Wake County with his Kiwanis Club, collecting school supplies for the needy, or ringing the bell for the Salvation Army. His favorite pastime, however, is spending time with his wife, Jennifer, and their two sons, Cole (12) and Camden (9 going on 20!).
Peter has resided in Germany, California, Georgia, Indiana, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Oregon and Vermont. Having lived in North Carolina for over 10 years, Peter refers to North Carolina as home. Don't underestimate the value of Peter's moving experience. He and his team understand the rigors involved in making a family move. Rely on that experience to help you.
