I get buyers excited about your home!

My marketing is designed to show buyers what makes your home special.

  • What would you tell a potential buyer makes your home a special place to live?
  • Why did you decide to buy this home yourself? Was it the schools, location, etc.?
  • What are the things your family has enjoyed the most about the neighborhood?
  • What features of your home might a buyer overlook if they saw the home quickly?
  • Why will it be hard to leave your home?

Professional Marketing = Your Home Sold!

What’s Your Home Worth?”

BullsEyeOn average, buyers see 12 homes before making a decision. That means 11 are competing against yours. Our Goal is to select a price that generates offers, by finding market acceptance.

This is determined more by where the competing homes are priced and not just appraised value.

This is why I do a Total Market Overview, where I shop for you home from a buyer’s point of view so see how it competes.

Price and competing homes are key buyer motivators! BuyerPyrimid

  • Buyers look in the price range determined by what they can afford.
  • A buyer who is seriously looking will quickly become knowledgeable about what to expect in their price range. An unreasonable asking price only discourages the buyer from looking at your property.
  • If you plan to adjust your price at the time of sale, it is better to list at that price. This will attract more buyers from the beginning. This can lead to multiple offers; this is the best position for you.
  • Buyers tend to make very low offers on properties they feel are overpriced.
  • You will not get more for a property just by asking for more. You usually get less because fewer buyers will consider it when it is placed on the market.
  • Homes that sit on the market for a long time receive lower offers. Buyers feel the seller is ‘desperate’.
  • Receiving offers quickly does not mean you priced to low, but shows that you priced correctly. Statistically this leads to the highest offers.

 

You Can Relax…

I Guide You Through the Process

Presentation of Offers

When I generate an offer on your home, you will receive the following:Road

  1. All Offers will be presented to you and explained.
  2. I will speak with the other agent to gather as much intel as I can about their flexibility and how much they want the house.
  3. I’ll explain of all the terms of the contract so that you thoroughly understand what the buyer is offering and what they are asking for.
  4. Expert advice on the strength of the offer and the fairness of the terms.
  5. Current market and mortgage activity.
  6. A full net sheet showing your bottom line if you accept the offer.
  7. The current competition to your home.
  8. Any comments from the other agent related to the offer.

Negotiating the Sale

I have experience negotiating many types of contracts:

  1. I will always explain the risks and reward of all actions in a negotiation.
  2. You will know how every offer affects your bottom line.
  3. I am tough but reasonable, and work for a deal that is the best for you.
  4. You will be kept informed every step of the way.
