Anyone can stick a pretty sign in the ground
Selling your home involves much more than just placing a "For Sale" sign in your yard and going to the closing. As a REALTORS®, Fransesca and I are here to help you prepare your home for sale, market your home, and guide you through the sale process to ensure you sell your home within your time frame and get the best price possible.
As your REALTORS®, we will determine the correct price range for your home, point out things you should do to make your home more appealing to buyers, and devise the most effective plan of action.
Do not list with a Realtor just because they give you the highest price. Consumer Reports stated . . .
"Expect the agent to suggest a price range, but don't
let that frame you in. Be aware that some devious
agents will at first suggest a very handsome price.
Then, after they have the listing and the house hasn't
sold, they'll come back with a pitch to lower the price."
Here are some of the steps we will take to sell your home:
Our plan for marketing your property
When you’re selling your house or condo, you want to sell it fast and make as much money as possible. A good marketing plan can help you do that. Here’s how we work with you to market your property. We will:
.Advise you on getting your home sale-ready. I will walk through your home with you and give you staging tips – everything from furniture placement to wall colour to clutter control – to help your place appeal to more potential buyers and maximize marketability.
2.Give you a sense of the market. To help you decide on a fair price that’s based on market value, I will provide you with information on how much other properties in your area have sold for.
3.Submit the listing to MLS®. I will include multiple quality photos of your property – and plenty of information to entice buyers.
4.Promote your listing. I’ll get the word out in as many ways as I can. Your listing will be featured on my website, my newsletter, in feature sheets, “Just Listed” postcards, slideshow presentations, targeted emails, and any other marketing vehicle that makes sense for your property – and the target market of potential buyers.
5.Promote your property to other REALTORS® via phone calls, emails personal meetings – whatever it takes to reach potential buyers.
6. I will keep you informed of feedback on your home. I will contact you to let you know the potential buyers’ level of interest, and tell you what types of comments they made about your property.
