Let's Talk About Selling Your Home
March 9, 2021
1. Let's Talk About Selling Your Home
Let's meet at your home to discuss your plans and goals, trends in the current marketplace, and assess your property’s qualities and characteristics. I will agent will analyze comparable property sales, assess the competition, work with you to determine pricing strategy, and outline a strategic plan to achieve the best possible result for you as a seller.
2. Setting The Stage
From applying a fresh coat of paint to rearranging furniture, I will ensure that the property is visually ready for showing. I will schedule a professional photo shoot, commission an illustrative floor plan, and prepare a listing description. At this time, we will sit down with your agent and complete the Seller Disclosure documents that will be necessary for the transaction. We want to have Property Inspections completed to include in the Disclosure Package during this hot, hot market.
3. Going on Private Exclusive, Coming Soon or Live
We will strategize to determine the best way to start the marketing period. Sometimes pre-marketing is the way to go. The listing is broadcast on Compass.com and sent across our 100+ partner sites for the selling process duration.
4. Spreading the Word
My marketing team produces beautiful collateral and assets to showcase your property strategically. I will develop and execute an intelligent, effective paid marketing plan in relevant publications. Eye-catching property signs are produced and placed outside your property. Video and Matterprt are essential during the pandemic when only private showings are available.
5. Making Connections
I continuously leverage professional contacts and the Compass Network Tool to find ideal buyer brokers. I am plugged into trusted agent groups that share buyer needs, off-market, and coming soon listings. By working together, we share information that is not available anywhere else.
6. Build a Strategy
I will assess the market response within the first 10 days of your listing going live. Feedback from agents and buyers is aggregated, and the listing strategy is revised if needed. We are in a fast-moving, efficient market right now.
You and I will establish the best method and frequency of communicating as the process unfolds. I will provide you with regular feedback and keep you updated with continuous traffic metrics and information from the market.
Once we receive an offer, I will contact you to review the offer's terms and analyze the pros and cons. Together you will decide how to respond to the buyer in one of several ways: by accepting the offer, rejecting the offer, or making a counteroffer.
Once a contract has been agreed to and signed by all parties, an escrow will be opened, and the buyer’s contingency period will begin. Timelines for the completion of buyer and seller responsibilities will be listed in the purchase contract and adhered to in the escrow. I will keep a close eye on the timelines and ensure that you comply with your responsibilities while also holding the buyer’s side to the task to keep the process moving.
I will monitor and coordinate all the details necessary to get you to the finish line. Once the buyer has performed their inspections, removed their contingencies, and the loan (if any) is ready to fund, I will arrange the final walk-through. At or near this time, the escrow will close, payment will be made, and the keys will be handed over to the buyer.
