Seller’s FAQs

Are there things we should do to our home to help ensure the maximum price?

Yes. There is a benefit to making sure your home looks its best prior to offering it for sale. There are also small remodeling jobs that will pay off at resale. We will advise you about specific improvements that will increase your home’s marketability and value.

How often will you advertise our property?

We don’t just list homes; we market them. We will make sure your home is marketed to potential buyers around the clock. We will customize a marketing plan to reach the types of buyers most likely to purchase your home. We know how to maximize the power of the Internet for our clients, while also using traditional methods including brochures,yard signs and direct mail.

Will you be present at all showings?

We will absolutely do our best to be present at showings. If we are not able to attend your showing, the Buyer’s Agent will be there.

What if another real agent tells us they can get us more for our home?

An overpriced house takes longer to sell and typically sells for less in the end. When you choose to work with us, we will conduct a comparative market analysis prior to recommending an asking price for your home. We will explain how we arrived at the price, but ultimately the decision is up to you. We will offer our professional opinion on how the market will value your home.

Do we have any responsibilities during the marketing of our home?

Your primary job during the sale of your home is to keep it neat and clean for showings and open houses. A large part of a home’s appeal involves staging, which is everything from furniture placement to landscape plantings for curb appeal. We will advise you on how to stage your home well, giving you easy tips and quick fixes to maximize your home’s appeal.

What happens once we get an offer?

We will help you consider each offer and negotiate the best deal for you. Once you’ve accepted an offer, we will guide you through the entire closing process and ensure everything proceeds smoothly.
