Initial meeting gives me the opportunity to meet, preview your home and discuss objectives, motivation, timelines. This will set the stage for the process and answer initial questions.
Present my market evaluation which details the competitive environment, where your home sits within the market and how best to market. I will set out timelines for photography, floorplans & measurements, video tours, introduction to market, etc.
Preparing your home for sale can be simplified with some guidance so that time and resources are focused on the right areas ensuring the best return.
Timing for introduction to market will be fine-tuned based on the duration of preparation phase. Once your home is ready for photography all critical dates will fall into place.
Price goes with timing. While your home is being readied for market, I will be watching the competitive environment, monitor closely and keeping you informed. Pricing of your home is a key component of the strategy and needs to be made thoughtfully.
Listing paperwork is signed. Please note that all individuals on title must sign all listing documents.
Sellers’ questionnaire gives details on your home and property so that I may market your home knowledgably. This information may be further merchandized in marketing materials.
Advertising vehicles will commence as a unified front. Photography and floor plans will have been completed which form a vital part of the marketing.
Communication is critical. After every showing and open house I will report back, ideally within hours. All market activity as it relates to your home will be shared.
Offer(s) will be handled promptly and professionally. I will negotiate the best possible terms on your behalf, in consultation with you. Once an offer is accepted, I continue to protect your interests.
Home inspection/bank appraisals (if applicable), I will be present ensuring that your home is presented the best way it can.
Completion of the property is when the lawyers representing both the buyer and seller finalize documents, transfer title and you receive your money.
