  • We utilize Centralized Showing Service to capture the highest amount of showings for your property and to capture vital feedback on what buyers and agents think of your home.
 

Preparing your Property for Showing

  • Selling residential real estate is our business. We encourage sellers to learn from our experience on how to expose the most attractive features of your property and prepare for showings or open houses.
  • Make sure your rooms are not cluttered. Clear all excess furniture, magazines, toys, and tables that you don’t use.
  • Windows should sparkle. Blinds and curtains should be open and dust free. Lights should be on to brighten the room.
  • If the paint is peeling or cracking, consider painting or patching the walls.
  • Keep in mind that closets seem bigger if they are not too full.
  • Clean your bathrooms, kitchen and mop the floors.
  • Fresh flowers or potpourri will make your home more inviting.  Don’t go overboard otherwise prospects may think that you are trying to cover up an odor.
  • Agents and buyers often feel more relaxed and comfortable discussing the property in private. Perhaps you would prefer to be away during the showing?
  • By following our guidance we will help you sell your property for the highest possible price, in the most effective manner and in the shortest time possible.

Bidding and Negotiating

  • Our agents will request all offers in writing with proof of funds or a loan pre-approval and copy of an earnest money check  .
  • Since we owe our fiduciary responsibility to you, the seller, our goal will be to negotiate the highest price possible keeping in mind not to lose the buyer. With countless transactions and negotiation experience we will guide you through every step, making sure of a successful transaction.
  • Our marketing efforts sometimes may produce more than one buyer interested in purchasing your property. Our agents are trained in coordinating healthy bidding wars and finishing with an ethical Last & Final step. It takes a skilled broker to coordinate a successful bidding war.
