The first time we meet, we will discuss what your selling objectives are. This is a good time to ask questions, and I will give you an idea of what to expect during the selling process. We will discuss preliminary ideas for pricing, positioning (being competitive with other “Active” listings in the immediate area), and house preparations that will elicit a quicker sale and for the most money. I will provide you with a complete Comparative Marketing Analysis (CMA) for your property which will include recent sales and ‘pending’ transactions. Once you decide you are ready, we will review and sign a standard Listing Agreement. We will also complete some of the mandatory disclosure forms that will be provided to your eventual Buyer.
Before putting your home on the market, we want to ensure it is most attractive to potential buyers. Knowing how to showcase and accentuate the best features of your home, without incurring unnecessary expense, is at the core of what I do. I will provide you with a detailed Home Preparation Consultation and a Selling Tips Sheet. As we walk through your property, we will discuss minor repairs, curb appeal tips, staging, and making your property feel welcoming to potential buyers.
Pricing your home competitively, at the start, will create more activity among brokers and buyers and lead to a more successful sale. Establishing the value and list price for your property involves researching and comparing similar properties and weighing factors including location, condition, amenities, and market conditions. We will arrive at a competitive price aimed at generating strong buyer activity and a final sale.
Understanding where buyers come from allows me to market your property competitively. Creating excitement in the marketplace through consistent and aggressive marketing efforts and integrating online and offline efforts is the key to a successful sale in the shortest period of time for the most amount of money. My maximum exposure marketing plan includes: Comprehensive Internet marketing through our site, Realtor.com, Zillow.com, Trulia.com, Yahoo.com and over 300 websites.
Also, public open houses & brokers tours, yard signage, and property feature sheet; sales agent network; and customized property marketing. I will remain in constant communication with you and give you progress reports on showings and all activity and comments on the home.
The complexities of processing transactional documents will be made very easy for you through my continuous guidance and communication. I will review all offers and terms of each offer with you and negotiate on your behalf so that you obtain the highest possible price for your home while limiting your exposure and protecting your bests interests.
Once your home is in escrow I will prepare all seller required disclosures and reports, attend appraisal with recent comparables to support your purchase price, and make sure all contingencies and repair requests are removed in a timely manner per the contract. Communication between us is imperative and I can assure you that you will be informed every step of the way.
Congratulations, you have now sold your home! I will provide you with helpful moving hints and also be there to answer any questions. I am always available to help you should a question arise after the close of escrow. I want to ensure that you are 100% satisfied.
