The key to our marketing plan is the daily contacts we make to prospective buyers and to top agents in town who have buyers for your house. Traditional methods of waiting for buyers to come to us (“Passive Marketing” like open houses or newspaper advertisements) are not nearly as effective as physically contacting potential buyers or their agents and convincing them to look at your house. “ACTIVE marketing” makes the difference and you can count on us to promote your house to buyers!

Additional Tips to help your home get sold faster!
*Make all necessary repairs.
Even minor things, such as a leaky faucet or chipped paint on a baseboard, can suggest to buyers that you might not be maintaining the house well in other ways, too. So we will help you with the making the process easy. First we will guide you to tackle several small projects to hire a professional to make those small repairs.
*Set the price right.
*Get your house appraised before selling it, so you can be aware of the market value. Our detailed CMA tool will help you to compare the selling of homes in the past in your neighborhood. We usually set the price slightly above the appraisal value — but below the prices of comparable homes nearby that were for sale. Our goal was to sell your house as quickly as possible– not to make a big profit — because our #1 priority is YOU!
Not surprisingly, Buyers eventually purchase their home through a Real Estate Agent. Our team has affiliates with over 2000 active real estate agents ready to show your home to their clients. Our team utilizes the internet to generate additional attention to your property.
This process generally begins with a determination of a reasonable asking price. The purpose of the Comparative Market Analysis is to determine the value of your house in the eyes of the buyer. As your real estate team, we can give you current information on what is happening in the marketplace, the location, condition, and price of competing properties and recent sales.
When listing your property for sale, do yourself a favor and tell your agent that you trust their professional opinion regarding price. This will allow your agent to be candid with you, which can mean selling your house at market value now instead of several months from now. Most agents simply don’t want to tell the seller the true value of the house if it’s obvious the seller wants more than it’s worth. By allowing your agent to be completely honest with you, you’ll save time and money. Consider the market analysis carefully with your agent as the numbers should make just as much sense to you as they do to your agent and the appraiser.
The majority of showings by sales associates on a new listing occur when the house is first placed on the market. Sales agents arrange for their active, qualified buyers to see a home when it is newly listed.
