MY SPECIALIZED SELLER'S MARKETING PLAN GUARANTEES A QUICK, EFFICIENT, AND PROFESSIONAL SALE OF YOUR HOME.
My goal is to sell your home for the highest possible price and in the shortest possible period of time by using the most innovative marketing and selling strategies of today. I suggest the best time to list your home by assessing your properties competition and demand vs. supply at the given time, and suggest the best pricing strategies in order to achieve top dollar for your property.
I try to keep the process of listing your home as easy and simple as possible. First, I diligently inspect your property and help prepare it for sale in order to realize its greatest return on investment. I take a consultative approach, write and design personalized feature sheets and advertisements, and then submit all the details of your property to MLS. Then I hire professional photographers to take outstanding digital photos, prepare 360 virtual video tours, and create a professionally measured floorplan to show off your properties best features and benefits to all prospective buyers. This is compiled into a full coloured feature sheet for buyers to take home to remember your property. All of my marketing material can be found online as well via MLS and my website for easy access to the comprehensive details of your property.
With your approval, I conduct strategically planned "open houses" for the general public as well as "sneak peeks" to get the public excited about viewing your home before the weekend opens. I create urgency by hosting two initial public open houses and having all of the properties documentation ready for a buyer to write an offer. Further showings are coordinated with plenty of notice and approval by you. I will personally be there at every showing as we believe this is one of the most important aspects of selling your home. Just having a knowledgeable agent there to answer questions and point out the best features of the home can and does make a tremendous difference in a sale and the sale price of your home.
After all our initial open houses and showings, I provide you with feedback and track and report all prospective buyer activity to you regularly. If you do not wish for us to host open houses I can discuss alternative selling strategies with you.
Upon offering, I facilitate an offer presentation and fully explain all associated documents and contracts before and after closing. I walk you through the entire selling process right through closing. During this process I can be reached 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I pride myself on having complete product knowledge and market knowledge and offering no obligation and honest service.
The Internet has become an integral tool in the homebuyer arsenal with 84 percent of all buyers identifying the Internet as the source in their home search.
My online marketing system allows us to make information accessible 24-hours a day, and to respond immediately and directly to each and every prospective buyer. From this website, prospective buyers can access photos, virtual tours, floorplans and vital information about your home immediately. Buyers will be pre-qualified before they view your home, and will also be able to find your property through any or all of these industry standard listing services: Mls.ca, Realtor.ca, Realtylink.org, Sutton.com, Realestatebook.com, Craiglist.ca, Twitter and Facebook.
I email your property listing on a professionally designed email template with photos and virtual tours to every prospective buyer and every local working realtor in our database. My lists of buyers await my new listings and our colleagues thank us for sharing photos, virtual tours and professionally measured floorplans for their buyers. My database of local working realtors is currently over 2,000 Vancouver Realtors, and includes the city's top producing agents.
I run ads in print publications such as the Real Estate Book, the Real Estate Weekly, Realtylink in print (MLS), NorthShore News, the Westender, The Georgia Straight, and other print publications we deem valuable or important to assisting in the sale of your property.
I supply professionally designed feature sheets & flyers to all homebuyers and at open houses and include a professionally installed For Sale sign on your lot.
Pricing Your Property
Today's buyers are comparison shoppers and are very price sensitive. They will shy away from properties that are listed too high. They too will have access to the same market data that we will provide you with. Listing above market value will more than likely sell your neighbour's property and not yours; or at the very least prevent Buyers from even visiting your listing. We will tell you "what you need to know" instead of what you may "want to hear". In the end, it is still your choice for pricing. Keep in mind that there are always other homes for sale competing with yours. I am here to help you price your home competitively to attract qualified buyers. I will show you what your property is worth through a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) and a Subject Property Analysis report. Both show you a range of prices being paid for homes in your area and properties that never sold for reasons that we will discuss with you. My goal is to position your property at the top of every buyer's "to see" list and to get you the quickest, most efficient and professional sale of your property at fair market value. I am here to protect your investment and legal rights. I look forward to assisting you with the sale of your home!
Preparing Your Home
Preparing yourself and your property is a large part of the process. You need to know the facts about what is involved and how much each step will cost so there are no surprises. Aesthetically speaking if your property isn't prepared with the buyer in mind its possible that they might not see the full value. In the industry we call this "staging" and if done properly your home should achieve about 5% more than it typically would have. A staged home also sells in half the time.
