Selling Your Home in Farmington Hills

Farmington Hills Michigan is one of the hottest real estate markets in the Southeast Michigan area, with a consistently strong buyer turnout year over year. If you are interested in selling your Farmington Hills home, there is no better time than now to get your house on the market to maximize your equity and return on investment.

Navigating the ins and outs of real estate and home sales is challenging no matter which side of the transaction you’re on. However, it can be particularly difficult for sellers who may not understand the true value of their homes, as well as the legal intricacies of real estate transactions. Working with a realtor who specializes in Farmington Hills residential properties is critical to ensuring the best possible outcome for your transaction, making the process virtually painless.

Buying a Home in Farmington Hills

Buying a home can be a daunting process for both new and experienced buyers alike. With real estate being a strong seller’s market in recent years, having the ability to get the property you want under contract at the right price can be very difficult. This is especially true in a highly desirable area like Farmington Hills, due to its high quality of life, top rated schools and excellent neighborhoods.

Working with an experienced Farmington Hills realtor for buyers is key to making a real estate transaction in your favor. Agents specializing in local real estate markets like Farmington Hills will have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the area, ideal neighborhoods for specific client needs, and will be able to negotiate on your behalf to ensure you receive the best possible value out of your home purchase.

Licensed Farmington Hills Real Estate Agents

Working with a real estate agent for your home transaction is always a smart decision. While all real estate agents are licensed by the State of Michigan, not all of them are experts in one particular geographic area. Working with a real estate agent specializing in one location is strongly recommended, as this ensures the best possible experience in your real estate transaction, whether you are buying or selling.

The team at John Goodman Real Estate has over three decades of combined experience in the Farmington Hills real estate market, with a long track record of success for clients on both sides of the transaction. Our team has consistently ranked in the top 1% worldwide in terms of sales, as well as number one overall in Plymouth, Farmington Hills and Northville combined.

John Goodman was recommended by our financial advisor to assist us in selling our home. From the 1st meeting to the closing, John was AWESOME, RESOURCEFUL, and VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE throughout the entire process. If we had questions, John had the answers. John was SIMPLY AMAZING and made our selling process easy! John and his team took charge and got us to a closing 1 month after our house hit the market. We definitely can not forget about John's Assistant, Holly Barry. Holly was THE BES! She was ALWAYS a phone call or email away. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND John Goodman for your real estate needs!The Fails

As a first-time home buyers in the US, my husband and I had a lot of uncertainty about the real estate market. Jeremy was very patient with us! He helped us to understand the whole process and worked with us every step of the way to make sure that we were comfortable with the decision we made. He is a great person and a great agent. I cannot speak more highly of him and his work, he was always on time for our appointments, professional and well prepared with statistics and information about the house and the neighborhood. We will definitely be working with him again in the future!

I recently had a great experience working with real estate agent Jeremy Goodman, from John Goodman Real Estate. Jeremy helped and guided us on every step in the process of purchasing our first home. I have nothing but excellent comments about Jeremy's work. I would highlight responsiveness and communication as some of his strengths. He also showed great experience on handling interactions with clients, listing agents, lenders, etc.He demonstrated having high market knowledge as he always provided data showing market dynamics and real estate trends, which helped out a lot on making the right decisions on the process.

John was a dream to work with! He helped us buy our first home in Michigan and made the entire process easy and seamless (despite us living in NYC and managing much of the process remote). His attention to detail and knowledge gave us great comfort and made the process painless and we will definitely be using him going forward. Would highly recommend and if we could give 10 stars we would. He is fantastic and the process could not have been better.

We went with Goodman Real Estate due to the solid reputation they have in buying/selling homes in Northville. Working with Sarah certainly proved thar the reputation is solid for a reason. Her market knowledge, relationship with other realtors, and adeptness with how she responds/pivots was very helpful with our purchase. We highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again.

We have been working with JOHN since 2019. We had very specific needs and a list of 15 items that we’re nonnegotiable in order to find our dream home. This was not an easy task. John was patient, kind, and very persistent, knowing our needs and desires to find our Lake home. When we finally found the right house, there were several other bids and without John’s expert negotiation skills we would’ve never gotten this house. We also had him sell our home in Farmington, which was 2 1/2 times the size of everyone else’s house in the subdivision. Another very difficult situation, but JOHN handled it like a pro! Highly recommend John and his team!!! Jon, we can’t thank you enough… We are living the dream in our beautiful new lake home Because of you and your efforts! We are forever grateful!!!

John is truly the best real estate agent in town and I know a lot of them.His negotiating skills are unmatched as he helped us find the home of our dreams. He looked with us for over five years . Without his experience and network of knowing agents and the market, we would never have got our dream house As he navigated the bidding war for us perfectly.As to selling our home, we ran into an extremely difficult buyer. John again navigated the situation perfectly, and ended up getting us top dollar, in fact more than what the house was worth.In a world where you get what you pay for, considering all agents charge the same I can't imagine why anybody else would use someone other than John Goodman and his team.

My husband and I have known John for years. He is a true professional and is the "best of the best" at his craft. His experience & knowledgeable of the business is priceless. He understands the current market trends, and will ensure everyone involved in the process feels comfortable with the final outcome. Whether he's representing the seller's or buyer's, John will go above and beyond to make sure his clients are treated with the utmost respect and is a great negotiator. He is always available for any questions you may have and takes the time to fully answer them. Whether you're a first time buyer or someone looking to buy or sell a multi million dollar home, John is the realtor you want representing you. He has both sold & found multiple homes for us over the years and I trust him completely. He and his entire team are truly kind hearted people that you can always count on.

Jeremy from John Goodman Real Estate was an outstanding agent. His prompt responses and attention to detail were impressive. He honed in on properties that perfectly aligned with my criteria, ensuring a highly personalized experience. During the offer process, Jeremy was swift and efficient in handling the necessary paperwork and maintained regular communication with the listing agent. Following the acceptance of my offer, he expertly guided me through the purchasing steps, collaborated effectively with the listing agent, and even assisted in locating a contractor for pre-purchase renovations. Despite encountering a minor issue during the transaction, Jeremy's proactive approach in liaising with the title and mortgage companies facilitated a smooth resolution. My experience with Jeremy and John Goodman Real Estate was exceptionally positive.

I cannot say enough about Sara! She is an outstanding realtor. She was so patient with me and never gave up on me.First I was looking for a condo and changed my mind and was looking for a house, then a condo in another area. I finally made a decision to stay in the condo complex I was in because all my friends are here. She was patient and kind through the whole process. Even when I would ask her the same questions over and over again. My condo sold on the first day of open house, thanks to her sending a staging expert to guide me! I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. She is the best! She found me exactly what I was looking for, a one level condo with an attached garage! Thank you Sara for making the whole transition go so smoothly!

John is very professional, to the point and quick in getting things done. I had two homes sold within a month with John when everybody is talking about the market being slow and with 7.5% interest rates. He's very patient with buyers who might have a lot of questions, good at de-escalating and getting to the bottom line. I would hire John again if I had a chance and also good advisor on real estate investments.

As a first time home buyer, I was very out of my depth. There were many things I didn’t know, and many things that I hadn’t realized I needed know. So I had a lot of questions. But Jeremy always had an answer and made sure I understood what I needed to know.We visited many homes I was considering. Some of them were not in as good of shape as the pictures online made them look. Jeremy never tried to talk me into buying something that wasn’t right for me. If the home we were visiting didn’t fit my needs or wants, he never tried to get me to overlook its faults just to make a sale. If a home wasn’t good, he said so.Eventually, I settled on a home I wanted to buy. But I had no idea how to go about taking out a mortgage loan. Jeremy had professional connections that helped me set up my mortgage at a rate I could afford. He also informed me about home warranties, which I never knew existed. And again he had professional connections that helped me find a policy that was right for me.But his service didn’t end after the sale. He didn’t just collect his commission and move on. After I had moved into my new home, he called me several times to make sure I was not regretting my decision. Which let me know that he actually cared.After my experience working with Jeremy, I will be recommending his services to everyone I know who is looking to buy a home.

Sara was absolutely incredible at working for us! She is completely open and honest in her expert observations when looking at homes. She stuck with us through two separate time periods looking for a home and ended up finding us the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood for us. She really went to bat for us as well regarding different issues found during inspection that needed to be fixed and was able to get everything on our list repaired by the seller before we closed. In the rare situation she couldn't get out to a house we had on our list, she left us in the capable hands of her sister Meg, who was so fun and incredibly personable. If you're looking for a realtor to get you in the right home, your search ends here. Give Sara a call. You won't regret it!

Sara Goodman was great to work with for both buying and selling. She was very thorough and helped us navigate through the 1st offer backing out for no reason. She handled a delicate situation very professionally. Needless to say, she was quick to relist our property and secure a second offer without jeopardizing the purchase on the other end. My husband, John, and I highly recommend her!

This was our first home buying experience and are so happy we worked with the Goodman’s! Jeremy was incredibly responsive and proactive from day one to closing and beyond. As we hadn’t bought before, Jeremy took the time to explain the process and make us feel comfortable. When seeing homes Jeremy made sure to not waste time and only find homes which met our personal criteria. Though we won’t be moving out anytime soon, when we sell, the Goodman’s will be the first call!

How Can a Farmington Hills Realtor Help?

A Farmington Hills Realtor can offer specialized local expertise and a range of services to help you navigate the property market in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Here’s how they can assist you:

Local Market Knowledge – Farmington Hills has unique property dynamics. A local realtor understands the nuances of the market, from the historical values of homes in different neighborhoods to predicting future trends. They can offer insights into the most promising areas for investment, as well as which areas might best fit your personal and family needs.

Access to Listings – Not all available properties are easily found on popular real estate websites. Realtors often have access to off-market listings or can provide early notification about properties that are about to be listed, giving their clients an advantage in competitive situations.

Skilled Negotiation – Negotiating property prices can be challenging. Realtors are trained to ensure that you get the best deal possible, whether you’re buying or selling. Their understanding of local property values, paired with their negotiation skills, can save clients thousands of dollars.

Navigating Paperwork – The paperwork involved in buying or selling a home is extensive. Miss a signature or overlook a clause, and you could find yourself in a complex legal situation. Farmington Hills realtors are familiar with the necessary documentation and can guide clients through the process, ensuring all paperwork is correct and submitted on time.

Personalized Guidance – A local realtor can tailor their approach based on your specific needs, whether you’re looking for a family-friendly neighborhood, proximity to good schools, or a home with historical charm. They can narrow down choices, saving you time and ensuring that the properties you view align with your criteria.

How Much Does a Farmington Hills Realtor Cost?

Oftentimes there is a question as to how much a realtor will cost. Each real estate transaction can be different, with negotiations and concessions on both sides of the deal. However, there is a general pattern that is followed in terms of cost and which party is responsible for different aspects of the transaction.

All realtors are commission based, which means that they do not make money themselves unless a sale is completed. The compensation for realtors on both sides of the transaction comes from the seller, with an agreed upon commission up front. This is a percentage of the sale, averaging around 6% depending on the particular transaction. Essentially, as a buyer realtors themselves do not cost any money, but as a seller the commission is the cost of using one to sell a home.

There are other costs associated with a transaction outside of realtor costs. Both buyers and sellers have their own closing costs. Most buyers have a mortgage, which requires a down payment at the time of closing. In addition, a buyer will have inspection costs, appraisal fees, and tax prorations owed on a property, etc.

He was very responsive to my calls and/or texts, and helped push the entire process along in a timely manner. I appreciate all of John's help and am excited to be moving into my new home!
John helped me sell my house in Michigan while I was living out of state. Selling a home can be stressful and challenging, especially remotely. After working with another realtor that wasn't able to help us market and sell our home effectively, we were referred to John. John did a great job and I'd highly recommend anyone looking to sell their home with a high touch agent that cares.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Jeremy. He showed a tremendous amount of dedication and focus in looking out for my best interests. He was incredibly knowledgeable about every house we saw – going above and beyond to get me as much information as possible. I appreciated the level of clear communication throughout the entire process, and would recommend him 100 times over for anyone looking for help.
Working with Sara was a pleasure! Despite being in a down market, we not only landed in our dream home, but also sold our previous home without any issues! She was always available for all of our questions, including one-off requests. We felt like we were working with an old friend.
John is a highly qualified and noble person who will take care of you and any of your real estate needs. John went above and beyond in purchasing my first ever home in Livonia, MI. He is extremely attentive, informative, and lets you think for yourself while making such a huge financial decision without being pushy.
John listed our home in Tanglewood. After that, he took complete control of the whole process. We did not have to worry about a thing. He kept us updated whenever anything arose. I would highly recommend John to anyone who needs the services of a realtor.
Jeremy Goodman has gone “over and above the call” to make selling our home as seamless as possible. Not a single question or request went unanswered – even those that didn’t fall within his responsibilities. We cannot say enough about his professionalism, respect, timeliness in answering questions, knowledge of the process, and overall genuine concern for our level of comfort throughout.
Sara was the most amazing person we could have had in our corner in buying a house. We are first time home owners and had never had experience with any of the process. Sara walked us through everything step by step and had no problem dealing with all of our questions. She was patient, kind, courteous, knowledgeable, and made sure we found a home that met all our wishes.
