IN 2017, CLIENTS WHO SOLD THEIR HOME WITH ME AVERAGED A NET PROCEEDS OF:
How? Keep reading to see the value that I offer my clients.
Getting top dollar for your home starts with determining the price. I will assist you with pricing your home based on CMA and statistical information. I will provide you with a value range and let you select the price that best fits your situation and time frame. Ultimately, the pricing decision is yours.
I am trained and certified in the art of negotiations. From creative thinking, to contract language, to crafting the perfect response, this is NOT something a seller should overlook. I believe in win-win negotiations with your interest as my #1 priority.
Professional Video Tour
I hire a professional videographer to shoot a video tour of all my listings - no matter what the listing price! I then use the video for Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube marketing to target thousands of additional buyers for your house.
Simply put, homes that are staged sell faster and for more money! I provide professional staging for all of my listings at no cost to the seller!
Social Media Targeted Marketing
I utilize social media to target thousands of additional buyers for your house. In addition to the listing videos, I market open house events, showcase your home's beautiful new photos, and it also provides a great way for you to share the sale of your house with your own social network of friends and family. Visit my Facebook Page for examples.
I hire a professional photographer for all my listings who specializes in real estate photography to illustrate all of your home's features. When we combine a clean home, a staged home and photos from a professional real estate photographer, it ensures your house will look its very best when we put it on the market.
Professional Aerial or Night Photographer (when applicable)
Sometimes properties show better with aerial and/ or night photography to showcase the home’s exterior landscaping, lot and views. If we determine this would be helpful for your house, I will take care of it at no cost to you.
I hire a licensed appraiser to professionally measure your home. The floor plan will be used for marketing and will be available to potential buyers and Realtors®.
The Benefits of Creating a Certified Floor Plan of Your Home:
- Visual aid for buyers
- Pictured in MLS
- Attach to the square footage disclosure and put it in MLS
- Send to out of town buyers
- Helps both Buyers and Brokers remember your listing
- Furniture placement
- Buyers like to send to family and friends
2. Allows for Better Pricing
- It is best to know exactly how much or how little square footage you have to sell.
- Better to find out now than after it is under contract.
- Builder plans may not be accurate if it wasn’t built to spec.
- Builder plans may not be accurate if changes were made.
- County records are inaccurate many times.
3. Reduce Buyer/Seller Discrepancy
- If an appraisal is done after it goes under contract the square footage will be calculated. If you find out at this point in time that you have advertised too much or too little square footage, someone is going to be unhappy and may try to cancel the contract.
4. Reduce Your Liability
- Attach to your square footage disclosure and put with the documents in MLS
I will provide a pre-inspection of your house at no cost to you. By having your home inspected before you sell it, you can save a lot of time in negotiation. The longer a house is on the market, the more likely prospective buyers are to suspect that something is wrong with the property. Remember back to all the times you have looked at properties during a home search? Chances are that whenever you came across a property that had been on the market for a while, the first thought that went through your mind was, “I wonder what is wrong? Why isn’t this property sold?” Don’t let that happen to you! Simply have the inspection done now, then make any necessary repairs to items found in the report before you go under contract. This allows the buyer to see the repairs have already been made.
HOME PROTECTION PLAN (when applicable)
Homes with a home warranty sell 60% faster and for a higher price than homes without a home warranty, according to a study by the National Home Warranty Association.
Depending on the home, sometimes it is a good idea to offer the buyer a home protection plan. If we determine this to be a helpful tool in selling your house, I will set this up at no cost to you.
A Home Protection Plan can provide the buyer up to one year’s coverage on selected items including, but not limited to:
- Central Heating System┃Central Air Conditioning System┃Interior Plumbing┃Electrical System┃Major Appliances
- You may also have coverage on certain items while your property is listed for sale, even before you pay for the coverage.
- Peace of mind.
- 14 months of coverage.
- Cash-shyness is not as bothersome after closing.
- Newly relocated homeowners don’t have to worry about finding the best contractors.
- Complimentary inspection.
- Up to 9 months of coverage during listing period.
- 8 out of 10 buyers would prefer to buy a home with a warranty than one without. Better negotiating position during inspection/objection period.
