When things don’t go as planned in the sale of a home, it can be easy for a seller to give up on the excitement to move that they once had. You may even be sitting there reading this thinking that it’s best to throw the towel in and give up on the dream of selling, or to wait for an extended period “when the market is better,” or to question whether or not to even work with a real estate agent.
Gone are the days when an agent could just input a listing in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), put a sign in the yard, and sit back and wait for another agent to sell the house for them. If all it took to sell a house was simply a sign and putting it in the MLS, wouldn’t everyone be selling their homes themselves? By now, don’t you owe yourself more than the status quo?
It’s time for a new approach: It’s time for a new agent, new marketing, new buyers, and most of all… new possibilities.
Staging – Did you know that staging a home to sell is different than making your home look beautiful for your everyday living? Feedback buyers often give of homes that don’t sell is that they couldn’t envision themselves living in it given the current owner’s choice of furnishings, let alone if there is clutter or imperfections. The National Association of REALTORS® states that the average staging investment is between 1 and 3% of the home’s asking price and generates a return of 8 to 10%. In our particular market, when price and general location are equal, the home that shows the best generates the most interest and will benefit from the exposure to potential buyers. I am professionally trained in home staging, and I will provide you with suggestions, guidance, and honest feedback to help you properly stage your home to get it sold.
High Quality Photography – Over 90% of buyers begin their home searches online, so first impressions matter. This is why I take my time to take high quality professional photographs using high quality digital equipment, off camera lighting, and post processing software to ensure we show your property in the best light from the very beginning.
Online Placement and Social Media Promotion – You may have heard of real estate syndicate websites like realtor.com, zillow.com, trulia.com and others. You are probably also familiar with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and LinkedIn. I am certified in real estate digital marketing (e-Pro®). In addition to more traditional marketing strategies, I will be using the appropriate online tools and platforms to ensure optimum exposure of your property to potential buyers.
Responsiveness – The statistics are clear– the modern internet consumer moves fast and expects us to do the same. According to a study done by MIT, even a 30 minute delay in responding to customer inquiries significantly reduces the likelihood of ever making contact. Is there any wonder why the average real estate agent misses so many opportunities to identify buyers for their sellers? Also, when other agents are planning showings for their buyers, they may overlook a listing if the selling agent has not responded to them. I am dedicated to prompt responses to all my calls, texts and e-mails, whether from you or from your potential buyer!
