It can feel like the details are endless when you’re selling a property. It is my job to streamline the process for you, ensuring everything is completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. Here’s an overview of the steps we’ll be taking along the way.
Communication makes all the difference.
You’ll always know what’s going on behind the scenes while your property is listed.
I will solicit feedback from each consumer and agent who views your property, passing their comments on to you.
We will work together to formulate a price adjustment strategy that sees us through your listing period. You’ll receive regular progress reports, delivered as frequently as you request. Whether you prefer a phone call or an email, that’s what you’ll get.
Preparing for success. Prepare your home for the sale.
More and more and more sellers today are seeing the value of investing in a pre-inspection on the property they are preparing to list. Whether or not you are confident in the condition of the home, an inspection can either give us professional, third-party validation, or reveal issues you should attend to before listing your property – issues a buyer inspection could surface later, making them part of the final price negotiation.
We will evaluate the current state of your property and arrange home staging. Any repairs or improvements needed to maximize your home’s value and appeal will be identified and scheduled.
When everything’s in place, we’ll put a lockbox on your property.
Let’s begin with this direct statement: I am not the one who decides how much your home is worth. The market does.
It tells us exactly where to price your property to sell and how to approach the marketing of your property. Here are the factors that will affect the value in today’s market:
Pricing your home properly from the start is the deciding factor on how long it will take to sell it.
Location is the single most important factor in determining the value of your property.
The condition of the property affects the price and the speed of the sale.
As prospective buyers often make purchases based on emotion, first impressions are important. I’ll be able to help in optimizing the physical appearance of your home to maximize the buyer’s perception of value.
Prospective buyers are going to compare your property – both the condition and the price – to the other listings in and around your neighborhood. Those buyers will determine value, based on properties that are listed or have recently sold in the area.
Property values are affected by the current real estate market. Because we can’t manipulate the market, we’ll collaborate on a pricing and marketing strategy that will take advantage of the first 30 days your property is listed. It’s the window of opportunity when buyers and their agents discover your property and are most likely to visit and make offers.
