Preparing your Property for Showing

  • Selling residential real estate is our business. We encourage sellers to learn from our experience on how to expose the most attractive features of your property and prepare for showings or open houses.
  • Make sure your rooms are not cluttered. Clear all excess chairs, lamps, magazines, toys, and tables that you don’t use.
  • Windows should sparkle. Blinds and curtains should be open and lights should be on to brighten the room.
  • If the paint is peeling or cracking, consider painting the property.
  • Clean your bathrooms, kitchen and mop the floors.
  • Flowers, potpourri, or even the smell of freshly brewed coffee will make your home more inviting.
  • Agents and buyers often feel more relaxed and comfortable discussing the property in private. Perhaps you would prefer to be away during the showing?
  • Consult your agent about researching comparable sales to price your property.
  • Following our guidance will help you sell your property for the highest possible price in the most effective manner.

 

 

Negotiating Offers

  • I will request all offers in writing. Based on the property requirements I will pre qualify every buyer and will always request a financial statement or pre-approval letter with the offer.
  • Since I owe fiduciary responsibility to you the sellers our goal will be to negotiate the highest price possible keeping in mind not to lose the buyer. With countless transactions and negotiation experience I will guide you through every step of the way making sure a successful transaction.
  • My marketing efforts sometimes may produce more than one buyer interested in purchasing your property. I have experience in coordinating healthy bidding wars and finishing with an ethical “Highest & Best” situation. It takes a skilled agent to coordinate a successful bidding war.
