A Realtor for Today's Market Place. 

A Marketing Presence 24 Hours a Day, Seven Days a Week!

 

Once you have made the decision to list with me and sell your house, I will market your property to attract the maximum number of Qualified Buyers, using a proven combination of Today's Technology and Traditional Advertising methods.  Some of these strategies will include:

 

The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) database - We want to attract as many Realtors with Qualified Buyers as possible.

 

Realtor.ca, public MLS sites - Over 80% of Buyers today use the Internet to search for their Future Home before they approach a Realtor to assist them with their purchase.

 

Advertising on the local Kijiji and Craig's List Websites - Your listing will be created for the discerning shopper.. painting a picture with words and images to set the stage for success.  The difference between a house and a home is in the mind of the Buyer. We want them to fall in love with the house and visualize making it their home, just as you did when you originally bought it.

 

Your Listing will appear on my Company Website, my Featured Listings Web Page, and I will create a Customized Property Web Page for your house. Here we can expand on the 'Personality' of your property over basic MLS, and add one more way to make it easy for Buyers to take the next step and call for a showing.

 

A For Sale Sign on your property with Feature Sheets - A Presence in your neighbourhood is essential. The For Sale sign is a tried and true traditional method of attracting attention that works for you 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week!

 

With the addition of a Feature Sheet Box, potential Buyers can easily obtain information about your property without intruding on your privacy

 

 

What YOU Can Do To Help The Selling Process Move Smoothly

 

The majority of sales can be won or lost before a Buyer even steps inside your house. This is where 'Curb Appeal' comes into play. By 'sprucing up' the outside of your house and grounds.. making them neat and tidy, lawn cut, flower beds tended and so on.. more Buyers will be willing to take the next step and make an appointment to come in and view Their Future Home.

 

Inside, a Clean House is not only inviting to the Future Home Owner, it can give them the feeling that this is a well maintained home. It can be surprising how important 'little things' are to a Future Home Owner. You can easily imagine how you would feel when you walk into a home to buy.

 

It Boils Down to Just a Few Simple Ideas:

 

If It's Dirty:       Clean It.

If It Smells:       Freshen It

If It's Loose:      Fix It.

If It's Broken:   Repair, Replace or Throw It Away.

 

 

"How Long Will It Take To Sell My House?"

 

There are 4 interconnecting reasons why a house has trouble finding it's way to new owners:

 

Price

Location (Neighbourhood)

Condition of The Home (Curb and Inside Appeal)

Marketing

 

The age old question "How long will it take to sell my house?" can in part be answered by national statistics on home sales.

 

Sold Within                    Percentage of Houses

 

1 Month                                          40%

 

- The Majority of these houses have been Priced Correctly according to the Current Market Trend, Curb and Inside Appeal, and Neighbourhood Location

 

2 Months                                             7%

 

3 Months                                             7%

 

4 Months                                       20% 

 

- Houses may have been overpriced to begin with. Many Sellers become frustrated by this time and lower their sale price dramatically to 'Make it Sell'

 

5 Months                                           10%

 

6 Months                                            7%

 

7 Months                                            9% 

 

Obviously you want your house to sell as quickly as possible!

 

With the aid of a detailed Comparative Market Analysis, I will be able to guide you in deciding what your asking price should be. By keeping an eye on the current market trend for your area, I'll be able to advise you if a price adjustment is needed to meet the demand of the available Buyers, who in reality are the ones that set the "Market Value" of a property.

 

To begin the Comparative Market Analysis process, click on: 'Home Analysis', fill in your property information on the form, and click the Send button at the bottom. It will automatically be emailed to me so I can start checking your home's features with current market and sold properties.

I look forward to assisting you sell your property!

 

Make it a Great Day.
