Preparing a home properly prior to going on the market is critical to the needs of our clients. Preparation allows us to determine, with the Sellers, what needs to be done and how the property should look compared to competing homes for sale. To this end we prepare a detailed list along with a time-line for our sellers that helps ensure success.
Selling a home can be a high-stress and time-consuming endeavor if you chose the wrong agent. To get the best price for your home, the process includes knowing what cost-effective or no-cost improvements to make in order to get the best return, recommending and overseeing the right vendors, preparing the disclosures and other legal documents, effectively staging the home to get noticed and sold, correctly pricing the home to attract buyers, marketing the home, negotiating the offers, and smoothly going through escrow. Not just anybody can master all of these tasks. Sellers need a great Realtor.
To ease your burden, we have shifted much of the work relating to home improvement, marketing, negotiation, and escrow to our Team of experienced Professionals. Our team of specialists; Transaction Coordinator, Licensed Contractors, Handymen, Photographers, Copywriters, Attorneys, Interior Designers, even a dedicated online and social media marketing specialist, are all devoted exclusively to assisting you through each step of the home-selling process.
It’s unlikely that other agents, no matter how good, can match our depth of resources or combined expertise.
We provide a multi-point pre-inspection checklist that focuses on issues ahead of the property inspections, so simple details can be addressed before the inspector arrives. Work involves taking care of last-minute items, such as replacing light bulbs, fixing stuck windows, strapping water heaters, and checking or installing mandated smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
Pre-Sale Inspections are the best way to avoid unpleasant surprises during Escrow. Getting Inspections done up front allows buyers to know as much about your property as possible before writing an offer. Inspections disclose on your behalf, by way of licensed 3rd Party professionals, any issues the property may have, helping keep you safe from non-disclosure issues.
All Inspection Reports and Disclosures along with any other related documents are posted to our Disclosure site. Buyer’s Agents can access this data prior to writing an offer. Every Agent who views a disclosure package is logged in to our site, so we have the contact data of every Buyer’s Agent who has interested clients for your property. We schedule and oversee and manage all inspections on your behalf.
Due to our high volume of listings and long-standing relationships, we are able to negotiate special pricing with local vendors. These vendors are familiar with the types of work necessary to bring a home to market in the most cost-effective way. We also oversee any work that has been agreed on, so that you enjoy peace of mind that the job is being handled in a professional and timely manner.
