Step 1:Photography

did youknow?

homes with professional photography…

  • Across all price tiers, they receive 87% more views than their peers.
  • A 47% higher asking price per square foot.
  • Photos help sell homes faster as well. An average home with one photo spends 70 days on the market, but one with 20 photos spends 32 days.

95% of home buyers start their search online, so professional photography is essential to selling a home. The pictures are taken by a professional and then edited to make sure your home is shown in the best possible way! Additionally, aerial photography is a huge plus for homes on large lots.

Step 2:MARKET PREPARATION

Decluttering and making repairs / alterations that will help you gain financially as well as show your property in its best light for the fastest sale possible are among our recommendations.

Buyers want to feel as if all of their belongings will fit easily and that everything will be well-organized.

Keep in mind…

  • As the saying goes, “First impressions last a lifetime”.
  • Rooms that are spacious should appear spacious.
  • Organize any unnecessary pieces of furniture to facilitate easy movement around the room and throughout the house.

Step 4:making the calls

As we are completely dedicated to selling YOUR home, we practice engaging our audience in every way possible. By practicing our scripts, we become more knowledgeable and prepared.

Our approach to every interaction is:

  • Knowledge
  • Confidence
  • Enthusiasm

A member of our team has a weekly briefing session to discuss the perks of your home in case we come across a potential buyer during a call, out in our community, or anywhere else. We market your listing like it was our own and treat it like it was our own!

Step 5:facebook marketing

It is no longer acceptable for your real estate agent to just enter your listing onto the MLS, hang a sign in your yard, and collect their check. Our marketing efforts go beyond social media to promote your home.

Step 6:FOLLOW-UP

Step 6:FOLLOW-UP

A study done by MIT found that the odds of contacting a lead after more than 30 minutes drop 100 times compared to after 5 minutes. The odds decrease by five times from 5 to 10 minutes. Is it any wonder why the average real estate agent misses so many opportunities to convert prospective home buyer leads for their sellers?

Having a professional team that follows up promptly can make all the difference in selling your home fast and at a good price. Tracey leads our team.
