Sellers
It is always important for the agent to help the client understand the market and the procedures the agent will
use to sell their property. Sometimes, however, they are kept in the dark as to what the agent is going to do
for them. We try to give our clients a solid idea of what to expect; what we will do for them and what they can
do for themselves. Here are some of the processes and marketing tools we will use to sell your property.
  • Prepare a competitive market analysis to
    help in your home pricing
  • Take photos of the property.
  • Prepare advertising schedule.
  • Suggest cosmetic improvements.
  • Discuss showing instructions.

    costs.

    company on any title issues.

Once your home is listed with MLS it’s “show time.” Your house and even your way of life are
on stage with the potential buyers who will see them. To keep the property looking its best,
establish a routine to take care of the little details like making the beds each morning,
clearing up the clutter and sprucing up all the spaces. These must be done daily or, in the
case of repeat showings, every few hours.

Price and condition of a home are the key factors for a successful sale.
Use the below tips to help you as you get ready to put your house on the market.
When your home is to be shown, we will always attempt to make an appointment with you,
giving you as much advance notice as possible. To help make the best impression during
showings,we suggest you:
Showing Tips

Open draperies and curtains to let in natural light.  Turn on enough lights to brighten every corner.  Remove
dirty dishes.  Make beds.  Dust and vacuum; clear clutter.  Clean kitchens and baths so they sparkle; clear
all clutter.  Turn off TV's and radios to cut down distractions.  Remove pets from the house.  Put away or
remove valuables such as jewelry and cash.

The most important element of the home sale is your safety. Avoid talking with prospective buyers during
showings. Let the agent showing your home answer any questions the prospective buyers may have. It is
best for you to leave while the house is being shown. Complete the Seller's Disclosure Statement
accurately and fully, and update it as needed to correctly reflect the condition of your home.
