Home Selling Success

Does your realtor have these two important qualities to prevent an unsuccessful home sale? 

An unsuccessful home sale is when the process is stressful and you don't sell your home for top dollar in a timely manner. An unsuccessful home sale is the product of working with a bad realtor.

What causes your home selling process to be stressful? 

A real estate agent who communicates poorly

  • Unresponsiveness. Nothing is more irritating than when you have a question, concern, or just want an update, and your agent won't answer the phone or get back to you.
  • Doesn't listen. An agent who only cares about getting a deal done and doesn't listen to your wants and needs for the home sale means a stressful and uncomfortable sale

What prevents you from selling your home in a timely manner for top dollar? 

An agent who does lackadaisical marketing:

  • A lazy real estate agent. An agent who isn't working hard won't get results. 
  • An agent who doesn't understand how to prepare and market your home properly

 

So how do you avoid hiring a real estate agent who will be unresponsive, won't listen, won't work hard, and doesn't understand how to market properly? 

Go with the opposite. Instead of an awful agent, work with an excellent real estate agent. 

Responsive

  • Will communicate with and update you regularly, according to your preferences. If you want a phone call once a week with an update, no matter what, you get it. If you want an e-mail summarizing the day's activity, you get it.
  • Will respond to your calls, texts, and e-mails in a timely manner...usually within minutes. At the worst you will get a response within two hours of trying to make contact. 

Expert Marketer

  • Will not just sit back and hope offers come in on your home. Will be active and work hard to generate visits and get offers. 
  • Will advise and help you prepare your home to attract showings and generate offers within days of listing your home.

But how do you know when an agent will be an excellent one and not an awful one? 

When you meet for a listing presentation, does the agent display an understanding of the importance of communication and responsiveness? Does the agent work with you on a specific plan for updating you? Does the agent present a plan for preparing your home to sell for top dollar, and explain why it will be effective? Does the agent have a marketing plan that goes beyond just listing your home and hoping offers come in?

As your agent, I will demonstrate that I am an excellent agent. I will communicate based on your preferences, I will be responsive to you, I will help you prepare your home, and market your home so that you have a stress-free process as your home sells quickly for top dollar.

Some of the other valuable benefits of working with me:

  • Correctly pricing your home. If you start too low, you may not maximize the selling price, even if you get offers above the list price. If you start too high, your home can sit on the market for too long and become "undesirable" to buyers. I utilize comparable sold properties in your area to help determine a starting point, and then adjust the price to reflect the unique characteristics of your home.
  • Staging your home. Research has shown that homes that have been professionally staged sell for more money than similar homes that haven't been staged. It is important that your home is presented in the most desirable manner possible to the buyers. I am familiar with what attracts buyers, and will do a room by room analysis, making recommendation on easy changes to prepare your home to sell for top dollar. 
  • Professional photos. Everyone is doing their home searching online, and research shows that homes with professional photos increases listing views by 61%! More people viewing your home online equals more people coming to see your home, and that means you sell your home quicker and for more money! I work with a local photography company to provide the absolute highest quality photos of your home to attract buyers to come and make an offer. Visit SEVEN IMAGES Real Estate Photography's photo gallery for samples of their work.
  • Relationships with high quality contractors, HVAC companies, plumbers, electricians, roofing companies, and more to help ensure that you're getting the best value and high quality work done on your home to prepare it to sell. I will make recommendations on what you should consider having done, but the decisions on what repairs or additions to make are up to you. 
  • Attention to detail. Once the offers come in, I will negotiate the highest price possible, and we will get a contract signed! But once a contract is accepted, there is still a lot of work to get to closing. I will be in communication with all parties involved, whether the buyer's agent, title company, you, and anyone else, to ensure that we stay on time every step of the way to closing.
