I will provide specific guidance on what you should do prior to placing your home on the market. The goal is to get your home in top condition so that it will command a premium price. Properly staging your home before showing it to buyers will help the home sell itself.
I will be a major resource providing recommendations for some of the best service providers: escrow, property inspection, termite inspection, home warranty, etc..
A Supra electronic lock box will provide state-of-the-art security while ensuring your home is accessible to agents to show to their buyers. This electronic lock box allows me to find out who accessed your home. Statistics show that using a lock box increases the number of buyer showings by 40%.
I will deliver details about your property to our very successful team of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services North West agents within 24 hours of taking the listing. These agents are assisting and guiding buyers who are searching for just the right property. Many of our listings are sold by our own agents within the first 30 days.
My Design Partner, a professional creative design company will create a quality brochure to emphasize all of the important amenities of your home to potential buyers. The idea is to make the best possible impression and to provide information so that after looking at dozens of homes, your home will stand out in the buyer’s mind.
Not all agents will be as knowledgeable about your home and the neighborhood as I am. Therefore, I will compile a book to be left in your house which will answer most buyer questions about your home, the community facilities, schools, and the surrounding area. The objective is to provide the buyers with all the information they need to make the decision to purchase your home.
Newspaper Homes for Sale
As a new listing, your home will be featured in the most appropriate newspapers. These have proven to generate the best buyer response.
Featured Properties on Top Internet Directories
I will advertise your home 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, world-wide on my web site, Realtor.com, Trulia, The MLS and other key internet resources.
I will also feature your home on the BHHS Web Site, the multiple listing service web site and typically about twelve third party listing service websites.
I will place a brochure box on a sign post in front of your home wherever it is allowed. This gives the drive-by buyer enough information about your home to become interested and to call for a showing.
Signs are good, Brochure Boxes too. But with our SMS Sign, prospects can get a virtual tour of the home instantly on their phone, we capture their mobile number to follow up which can not be done with a brochure. This is very modern and innovative tool that very few have learned how to use successfully as we have!
More than half of all homes in the area are sold by the Top 100 agents (I have been one for many years). I will mail details on your home directly to each of those agents. In addition, I network with numerous top agents on a regular basis, and I will promote your home at every opportunity.
I will review which agents have shown houses in the same price range within the last two weeks and fax them information about the home we have for sale and remind them about the special features of our house
Broker Open House(s)
Soon after your home is listed, I will hold it open for all agents. In addition to creating broker interest in your property, this will also reduce the number of agents who come days later to preview your home. Refreshments may be served or a cash drawing offered to increase attendance.
I will personally brief hundreds of brokers and agents on the key features of your property at local broker meetings. I am an active member of various Silicon Valley Realtor associations.
Every week, I email information on listings to a selected list of people who are in the market place. This includes hundreds buyers, previous customers, and others in my personal sphere of influence.
In 8-10% of all home sales, the buyer knows someone who lives within two blocks of the house that he or she buys. I will create interest about the sale of your home in the surrounding neighborhood.
As often as possible, your house will be held open to the public to attract prospective buyers.
30% of all homes sold here are purchased by someone coming from outside the area. As a Certified Residential Specialist, I am listed in the Residential Sales Council Referral Directory and therefore have access to incoming buyers from all over the United States. In addition, the Berkshire Hathaway Home Services North West and STAR POWER referral systems are two of the best sources of buyers.
I employ as many unique marketing methods as necessary to get a home sold. Examples might be cash drawings to inspire showings, or broker luncheons to capture more agent attention.
Showing Follow Up
I will contact the agents who have shown your property more than once to determine the level of buyer interest and to provide additional information for the prospective buyers as required.
I will give you regular emailed, written or verbal reports to include actions taken, actions needed, current and planned advertising, feedback on showings, and changes in the market conditions that may affect the sale of your home.
The process is a team effort. My job is to market your home while your job is to set the price. My job is to interpret the market enabling you to make wise choices.
Finally, I will take great pride in handing you a check at close of escrow. You will be glad you trusted the sale of your home to Team Bell Square and Berkshire Hathaway Home Services North West.
W hope that our brief overview has made an impression on you in that you would like to schedule a discovery discussion with us. We have much more to share with you on your unique home and how it will be marketed. We look forward to presenting you with an exceptional strategy.
