Is there anything I should do to my home to help ensure the maximum sales price?
Yes! There is a huge benefit to making sure your home looks its best prior to offering it for sale. There are also small home improvement jobs that will more than pay for themselves. We will advise you on how to increase your home’s marketability during our listing consultation.
How often will you advertise my home?
We don’t just list homes, we market them! We will make sure your home is marketed to its full potential to buyers around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! We will customize your marketing plan to reach the profile of buyers most likely to purchase your home. We know how to thoroughly utilize the power of the Internet and social media while also using traditional methods such as yard signs, open houses, and mailings.
What if another agent tells me they can get me more money?
Some agents will quote a higher listing price just to get your business. But an overpriced house will not sell. Typically, homes that start out overpriced end up selling for far less because by the time the price is lowered to within the market range, the buyers who would have purchased your home are already gone, the initial new listing “buzz” is gone, and your home has become “stale” on the market. If we work together, we will be forthright and honest and conduct a Strategic Pricing Analysis prior to recommending a price.
What is a Strategic Pricing Analysis?
The average agent will provide what is called a CMA which stands for Comparative Market Analysis. A CMA will give you the estimated monetary worth of your home. We provide a Strategic Pricing Analysis which is much more in depth and shows you where to price your home to get it sold. Our passion is to get you top dollar, and a our pricing strategy is how we get you there!
Do I have any responsibilities during the listing/marketing of my home?
Yes! Your primary job during the sale of your home is to do what we cannot do for you - Keep your home neat and clean! Staging, which includes everything from furniture and decor placement to home fragrance, will ensure your home shows in its best light. We will advise you with tips, tricks, and quick fixes. You are not alone! We will walk you though it all!
What happens once I get an offer?
We will present each and every offer to you along with what we think is your best offer strategies to move forward. Based on what you decide, we then negotiate on your behalf to get you the best deal. Once you have accepted an offer, we guide you through the entire closing/escrow process to ensure everything proceeds timely and smoothly. We do not pass you off to someone else during this time, we are with you until the end!
