Selling a home is a complicated process and finding a buyer is not as easy as it may seem. Price, Location and Condition are just a few of the important factors that will help your home sell. But the following items are essential to helping your home sell.
What You Can/Need To Do
- CLEAN UP/REPAIRS
Presentation is everything when selling a home. A home that is clean, needs little to no repair and is not cluttered will hopefully take less time and effort to sell.
- AVAILABILITY TO SHOW
A house that is difficult to show is hard to sell.
- REASONABLE SALES PRICE
I will provide you with comparables and an explanation of why, and at what price I think your home will sell.
If your property is overpriced #1) it will take longer to sell , #2) the price eventually will have to be reduced (after months of dissappointment and frustration) and your property may become what’s known as “stale” on the marketplace.
When I list your home I will give you an itemized itinerary on how we are going to proceed with the marketing of the property.
You will receive a regular update on ad calls,open house activity, agent input, internet hits etc. But if it doesn’t sell in 2 weeks, you have to be patient.
If it doesn’t sell in 2 months we’ll talk about what the problems might be and pursue other options
Please let me know at any time if you are not happy with me or my methods. We have to be able to talk with one another and I am open to hearing your input .
What To Expect From Me
My cell phone is on 7 days a week. When buyers call in response to my ads, I am available to answer questions and to show your home. If I am unavailable, my business associate is just as dedicated as I am and will make sure no leads fall through the cracks.
I will share what I know about Pricing your home, Tips for preparing the house for sale, Marketing, Qualifiying buyers,Hosting Open Houses, Purchase and Sale Agreements, Negotiation tactics, Inspections, Repairs, Escrow, Moving…and about staying sane throughout the process.
The sale of your home will be advertised through the local MLS, newspapers, the Internet ( Craigslist, Zillow, Trulia,etc) on http://realestate.bellingham.net/ and on my website, http://sellingbellingham.net/as a FEATURED LISTING. Statistics have shown that more than 90% of consumers are now shopping on line.
As your listing agent, I will be the only one representing you in the sale of your home. Other agents bringing buyers are representing the BUYER.
I am loyal to my clients, acting in your best interests and keeping all information confidential.
I will sell your home as though it were my own, promoting all the positive aspects, acknowledging any pitfalls, providing comparables to substantiate the pricing and offering financing options if needed.
I will not quit until we’ve sold your house…and even after we’ve sold it, I’ll still be there to answer questions and to help you with your future Real Estate needs.
I also can assist you if you are in a distressed situation, meaning, facing foreclosure or upside down on your property. Upside down equates to you owing more on your property than what it’s worth.
So feel free to contact me to discuss a complimentary analysis of your property.
