WORKING WITH THE RIGHT AGENT

Most Sellers use a Real Estate Agent and for Good Reason! It has been shown that a good agent will sell your home sooner and for more money than a home without an agent representing the homeowner.


Consider this:

Pricing and Preparation is Real Art

Negotiating is hard

Marketing today is much more than just the MLS

Showings are a pain when selling the home yourself

Buyers do not want to see you when they look at your home

Paperwork takes expertise

Missing the mark on any one of the above can cost you time and money and a good agent will make the entire process much easier for you.

PREPARING TO WOW BUYERS

Prepping and staging a house. Every seller wants their home to sell fast and bring top dollar. Does that sound good to you? This leads to: Optimized Aesthetics, Reduced Market Time and Maximized Sales Price.

Preparation Analysis
A personal review of your home with both the Buyers and Home Inspectors eye in mind. Quick fixes that are identified before selling your home can pay off big time. This analysis identifies those quick fixes that I believe are prudent and make good sense to address before the home goes to the marketplace.

Strength & Weakness Analysis
My Strength analysis identifies the aspects of your home he feels will positively affect your home in the marketplace. These Strengths are then used to build our marketing platform and dialogues in order to maximize the effectiveness of our marketing platform in the marketplace.

My Weakness analysis uncovers issues that may potentially cost you money on the sale of your home. Since we have control over 72% what is seen of the home, many factors can be remedied and I work with each homeowner to develop a cost to benefit analysis of each issue before we make an educated decision on what to replace/repair or improve.

Professional Staging Consultation
Professional Stagers are highly skilled artists that I can bring in to give your home a complete review from both top to bottom and inside and out. Staging is about illusions and making that first impression count. Good staging enhances the best features of the house while minimizing the negative aspects as much as possible.

Staging a house is presenting the dream by creating a series of impressions throughout the house so that Buyers fall in love with the home. Staging puts money in your pocket and just makes good sense.

PRICE-SMART RIGHT PRICING

Setting the right list price for your home is an art. Too low and you leave money on the table – too high and you scare away many a would be Buyers. Finding the optimal price requires a combination of expertise, analysis and street smarts that only a seasoned professional can provide.

Pricing your home right the first time results in more interest, more showings, more offers and ultimately the highest price for your home.

Implementing the Plan
Working within each homeowners comfort level we establish a game plan and time line to prep the house “For Sale”. For most homes this may be as little as 1 to 2 weeks. For some homes however, the plan maybe a bit more involving and involve some renovations or upgrades.

Whatever your situation, you will be guided and supported every step of the way by my team of professionals and network of professional trades people to get you the ultimate end result—the highest price for your home.
