Learn The Market
First, We'll help you learn about the market for your home and understand the competition in the area. You'll see reports on homes like yours that have sold recently and those that are currently on the market. We'll talk about the "ideal" buyer for your home and how to attract that buyer with targeted marketing, home staging, photography and written descriptions. You can tour the competition and understand "days on market" and "market time" for homes and neighborhoods like yours. Then we'll keep you up-to-date throughout the selling process to be sure you are confident making the best decisions to achieve your goals for selling your home within your timeframe.
Buyer's Point of View
Together we will take a walk through your home taking "a homebuyer's point of view" making note of the strengths and weakness of the property. We will provide you with proven strategies that will lead to a quicker sale and recommend improvements and get you the resources to get things done. Plus, we can show you how to break the seemingly overwhelming process of preparing your house for sale into small manageable pieces that you can accomplish quickly and easily.
Pricing is about strategy not just "a" price. To get the quickest sale and the maximum price we'll make sure have the best market data. You will have learned what homes like yours have recently sold and what kind of buyer is buying. You have toured the competition and looked at how long homes have been on the market. We'll even get you insider information from Realtors selling homes in the area. Together we will create several optional pricing scenarios so that you can make a confident pricing decision based upon the right data and some great advice from Shoreline Property Advisors.
Today, most home buyers use the Internet to shop for their new homes. Homes that look great and stand out of the clutter on the Internet produce virtual showing or online showings). These virtual showings translate to onsite property tours by buyers and their Realtors. That gets you closer to a closed home sale. Architectural Digest, Pottery Barn and Williams Sonoma Home use professional photographers to photograph homes and you should too. See the examples of great work by our professional photographers and photo studio. See examples of impressive work by our photographers and virtual tour studio.
Set the Stage
The idea is to get the buyers to see themselves living in your home. Think about when you visit a welcoming vacation resort or the guest cottage of a good friend. You feel invited and imagine what it would be like to spend more than just a weekend in such a beautiful space.
Consider that home buyers tend pay a higher price when they are emotionally connected to a living space. If a buyer can envision themselves living in a space they can more easily become emotionally connected. Without that emotional connection a home becomes a commodity more easily compared to other properties on the market. Furthermore a home buyer who is less emotionally attached is more willing to walk away during negotiations which can be a negotiating position that leads to lower proceeds for home sellers.
Our staging team can help you with a few accessories, a couple of rugs, a few pieces of furniture or an entire home totally designed and staged.We even have experience with complete turnkey homes providing everything right down to the pot holders so our clients can just bring their suitcases and move right in.
