Selling a home is an important and potentially stressful event if not handled professionally and with clear communication. How should you price your home to maximize value? How long will it take to sell your home and close escrow? Who will give you updates and feedback? What can you expect in escrow? To answer these questions, here is what I do:
PRICING – The key to determining the right price is to know what your competition is and what potential buyers are looking at the exact moment you put your home up for sale. I will have seen your competition and because I track the buyers in the marketplace, I will advise you as to whether the price can be pushed a bit or not. This information changes quickly. Because we both want the best price possible, we will strategize what this is for you.
STAGING FOR SHOWINGS – The better a home shows, the quicker it sells against the competition. When we meet to list your home, we will go through it together to determine what we should do before showings begin. This may include de-clutter, re-arranging furniture or perhaps even putting things in storage.
SHOWINGS – Showings are done with me present at every showing to make sure no question or concern goes unanswered from a potential buyer. Ever!! Most showing agents are showing multiple properties and can't get the facts on all of them. That's where I come in. I sell your home, I don't just list your home!!
OFFERS – When an offer is written, I will determine four things before reviewing it with you. The motivation of the buyer is the most important – how serious and committed are they about buying your home? Next are the financial qualifications, time frames and contingencies and finally price. All of this will be vetted out before we respond to an offer. We will also solicit back up offers where possible and appropriate.
ESCROW – Since getting into escrow is the whole point of listing your home, the process demands a full-time professional whose only job is to make sure you know what is happening at all times. Surprises are the enemy of a happy seller and timelines must be met on a daily basis. Having Me and my Team manage the escrow, gives us the best chance to make sure you are always feeling informed and never surprised.
