“What value does an Agent bring to the table?”
There are 5 areas where an experienced Real Estate Agent can help you in your home sale:
SETTING THE PRICE
Pricing your home is a careful balance. Set the price too low and you leave money on the table. Set the price too high and your home will be on the market a long time and buyers will think something is wrong with it. As your Realtor, it is my job to know what properties like yours have sold for recently, and can utilize the detailed history of area sales to tell whether your home - with it’s unique features, location and condition - will bring more, or less, than similar listings. And I always have the pulse of the local and regional Real Estate market, so I know what the market is doing in your area. That will assure that pricing your home will get you the highest possible result in the least amount of time.
Selling a home can be an emotional experience. After all, it’s been a part of your life, perhaps the center of your life, for years. As a third party, my job as your Agent is keeping you focused and provide independent feedback on things you should do, or changes and repairs that should be made, to help the home sell. I will also act as a buffer during negotiations. As a licensed agent, I adhere to a strict code of ethics, and I work to represent your best interests.
PROVIDE MARKETING MUSCLE
Attracting interested people to view and buy your home does not happen automatically. Marketing your home to the widest audience of potential buyers through a well-coordinated multimedia campaign. In today’s new social media environment the word of mouth can spread worldwide in a short period of time and you never know where your buyer is coming from. Of course, you will use Signs, Newspaper Ads, Internet and open houses, but you’ll also should consider a video to showcase your home online.
PRE- QUALIFY BUYERS
An experienced agent will determine if buyers are serious by getting answers to questions about their motivations and purchasing power and by ensuring that they have been pre- qualified for a mortgage in the amount needed to buy your home.
FOLLOW THROUGH and CLOSE THE DEAL
Selling a house can be stressful and complicated plus a lot of paperwork will be involved. First there are offers and counter-offers. My experience in negotiating for your best possible outcome is a huge asset for you as a seller. Then come the Contracts of Sale, inspection reports, disclosure forms and other documents. My value is in avoiding delays and mistakes, and coordinating the timing of the sale for all parties involved, so that you can make a smooth transition from your current home.
You’ll find that having a knowledgeable Agent beside you throughout the sale of your home is priceless. The value in working with a licensed Agent brings you in the end, peace of mind. I do it every day, and I enjoy the process. The marketing, the details, the paperwork, the coordination. You can relax and start looking for your next home, while you leave the details of selling your property to me. Please call if you like to discuss your tailored sales strategy with me on 07 5476 2772.
