When selling your home you will want to showcase it in the best light and to the greatest amount of people. My professional experience marketing, listing, staging, negotiating and trusted resources will lead you smoothly through the necessary process to successfully sell your home.
We have contact information for hundreds of agents who have sold homes in your area and the surrounding communities. We create beautiful and professional email alerts which detail the criteria of your home as well as include professional photos and listing information. This gets your home in front of as many agents as possible to get your home sold for the highest amount and in the quickest amount of time.
Social media can help real estate agents find a wide audience, in the right area and at the right time. In fact, according to the National Association of REALTORS 77% of real estate agents use social media. Facebook is by far the most popular platform in real estate, followed by LinkedIn and Instagram. Hamstead Realty is active on all of the major social media sites which provides additional exposure for your home.
A real estate listing syndication is where your FMLS (First Multiple Listing Service) listing appears in many places at the same time, primarily all websites that are dedicated to the real estate home buying market. The real estate listing syndication is crucial to your Internet marketing strategy to sell your home and get the online exposure it needs to get in front of searching buyers.
"We know that a home is more than four walls and a market price; it's an investment a family made together and a place where memories are held. Our vision is to maintain the quality of work, service, and culture that we offer, while growing to serve as many communities as possible. Everyone deserves professional real estate photography". - Visually Sold
A data record is created each time a keybox is opened by an agent, and Supra's wireless keys transmit the showing information immediately so the listing agent can obtain real-time information about showings. Client questions can be answered quickly, and feedback from showing agents can be gathered while information is fresh in the showing agent's and client's minds.
We have clean, clear and bold signage for the front of your home as well as directional signage (if allowed by your community) drawing buyers to your home. Some are driving by and slam on the brakes when their eye catches the signage. It also lets neighbors and other residents in the area see a physical indication that your home is for sale.
While it may sound simple, there are a lot of proven best practices to think about when prepping a house for sale.
If you do this work on your own, you may invest capital and many hours into the wrong things. Your time is money – don’t waste it. An agent can help steer you in the right direction based on current market conditions to save you time and effort. Since we’re in a hot sellers’ market, you don’t want to delay listing your house by focusing on things that won’t change your bottom line.
Real estate professionals are experienced when it comes to looking at recent comparable homes that have sold in your area and understanding what price is right for your neighborhood. We use that data to price your house appropriately, maximizing your return.
In a FSBO, you’re operating without this expertise. Even with your own research, you may not find the most up-to-date information and could risk setting a price that’s inaccurate or unrealistic. If you price your house too high, you could turn buyers away before they’re even in the front door or run into problems when it comes time for the appraisal.
Simply put, real estate professionals can get your house in front of more buyers via their social media followers, agency resources, and proven sales strategies. The more buyers that view a home, the more likely a bidding war becomes. Using an agent to boost your exposure may help boost your sale price too.
When it comes to selling your house as a FSBO, you’ll have to handle all the
negotiations. Here are just a few of the people you’ll work with:
As part of our training, agents are taught how to negotiate every aspect of the real estate transaction and how to mediate potential snags that may pop up. When appraisals come in low and in countless other situations, we know what levers to pull, how to address the buyer and seller emotions that come with it, and when to ask for second opinions. Navigating all of this on your own takes time – a lot of it.
Speaking of time, consider how much free time you have to review the fine print. Just in terms of documentation, more disclosures and regulations are now mandatory. That means the stack of legal documents you need to handle as the seller is growing. It can be hard to know and truly understand all the terms and requirements. Instead of going at it alone, use an agent as your shield and advisor to help you avoid potential legal missteps.
