Here’s A Guide To Avoid Costly Problems And Sell Your Home For Every Bit Of Its Worth In The Least Amount Of Time…
How To Sell Your Home For The Most Money
The Market Will Pay!
But there comes a day when it’s time to move on. Time to reflect on old memories, and prepare to build new ones. Time to leave the past behind for a new future. It’s no wonder why buying or selling a home is often emotionally charged and potentially overwhelming.
That’s why I created this report. Regardless of your reasons for selling, your goal is to sell your home for the most money, and in the shortest amount of time. And for the least amount of hassles and distractions.
Mistake #1: Failing to Dress Your Property For Sale
Buyers look for HOMES, not houses. They buy homes in which they FEEL they would like to live. One of the major factors in getting your home to sell quickly is very simple: MAKE IT FEEL LIKE “HOME.” Most buyers select their home based on EMOTIONS. Once their decision is made to buy, they justify their purchase with LOGICAL reasons: facts and features. So, it’s most important to make your home appeal to all senses. Your property is NOT the only home the buyers will see. You are competing with other homes in the market, and some of them have been professionally decorated.
When you’re showcasing your home for sale, it’s going to look very different from the way it looks when you’re living there. Here are a few tips for showcasing your home for sale:
Take a look at your actual home. Is the paint fading or chipping? Is the color outdated or impersonal? How does the roof look? As you drive up to or away from your home, what do you see first?
So you price your home high, thinking you can come down. Problem is, the agent and buyer community don’t look at it that way. They see it as an overpriced home. After a few months go by, eight or 10 open houses, signs, agent tours…and not a nibble. So you decide to lower your price again. But it’s too late…your home has already been “branded” by the agent community. So you reduce your home a little more. And little happens.
I’ll be straight with you, and tell you precisely why it’s worth what it’s worth. I’ll also show you how to net more money in your home sale. Here are a few more areas my exclusive [Home Marketing Plan] can help you sell your home:
How do you really define and compare market value between homes?
How the total market performance may affect your home sale – positive or negative.
How to protect yourself from crime when selling your home.
How to handle buyers during a showing to help yield the highest price.
Once you understand these important issues, you’ll know how to price and sell your home for the fastest, most profitable sale. Also, with this information, you’ll never pay too much for any home you buy for the rest of your life.
The most obvious marketing tools everyone uses are only moderately effective. Successfully marketing of your home (getting the highest price, at the right time, and with no hassles and problems) requires much more. Surprisingly, less than 1% of homes are sold at an open house. Agents use open houses to attract buying prospects, not to sell your home. And advertising studies show that less than 3 % of people purchased their home because they saw it in an ad. That’s why the most competent agent will have a broad spectrum of marketing activities, emphasizing the specific strategies that will work best for YOUR particular property or area. In fact, I use an unprecedented marketing plan in selling your home. If you like, I would be happy to share every one of those strategies with you at your convenience.
ONE MORE THING… Did you know that most home inquiry calls come in during business hours when agents are away from their offices? That’s why if I’m not in the office, I have a highly trained licensed assistants who can take those calls, and respond immediately. This way, your home is NEVER put “On Hold” or a showing is delayed for a single minute when a hot inquiry surfaces.
When this happens, you should have the right to fire your agent. But the listing agreement you signed is with the BROKER, not the agent. If you’re unhappy, the broker may assign your home to another agent – someone you neither personally selected, nor do you want. But you’re stuck with him or her until the listing agreement expires. And that can cost you a lot of money! Always protect yourself by: 1) carefully selecting the right agent, and 2) make certain that in a “worst case” situation, you have the flexibility to modify or cancel your listing agreement.
