I don't want to pay an agents commission. Won't I net more money if I sell my home alone?

* It would appear that way. But according to statistics, the median selling price of a home sold by owner was 15.4% less than agent-assisted transactions*. That means in most cases, agents pay their own commissions, and sellers still receive more money than if they had done all the work themselves. So typically with an agent, you net more money and free yourself from all the paper, details and legalities involved throughout the process.

If I listed with you, how would you advertise my property?

 

   I don't just list homes; I market them. I will make sure your home is marketed to potential buyers around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As part of my marketing plan, I will keep you home advertised in the places where it will reach buyers most likely to purchase your home. I know how to maximize the power of the Internet for my clients, while also using traditional methods such as brochures, yard signs and direct mail.

 

Will you be present at all showings?

* At open houses I, or a member of my team, will be there. For showings, potential buyers will bring their own agents to see your home. Most buyers prefer only their own agents be present when evaluating a prospective new home.

 

What if another agent tells us they can get us more for the house?

* Some agents will quote a higher listing price just to get your business, but an overpriced house will not sell.  If you choose to work with me, I will conduct a comparative market analysis prior to recommending an asking price for your home. I will explain how I arrived at the price, but ultimately the decision is up to you. I will offer my professional opinion on how the market will value your home.

 

If I worked with you, would I have any responsibilities during the marketing of my home?

* Your primary job during the sale of your home will be to keep it neat and clean for showings and open houses. A large part of a home's appeal involves staging, which is everything from furniture placement to home fragrance. I will advise you on how to stage your home well, giving you easy tips and quick fixes to maximize your home's appeal. You will also need to be accommodating to potential buyer’s. Other than that, I will handle all of the advertising and marketing, screening of prospective buyers, offer evaluations, negotiation of terms of sale and management of your closing.

 

What happens once we get an offer?

* I will help you consider each offer and negotiate the best deal for you. Once you've accepted an offer, I will guide you through the entire closing process and ensure everything proceeds smoothly.
