HOW AM I GOING TO SELL YOUR HOME?
Recommend a listing price based on thorough research of competing and recently sold properties, comparable to yours.
Suggest ways to make your home the most appealing it can be to potential buyers by bringing in a professional to stage your home.
Prepare an engaging, accurate listing sheet for MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and provide you with a copy.
Place a for sale sign and lock box on property. Place pointer signs to direct potential buyers to your property (where allowed).
MARKETING TO KEY AGENTS
Personal e-mail of your new listing.
Follow-up phone call to encourage a showing.
Send them a copy of your Property Flyer.
Personal notification of any major change in your property (price, decorating, buyer incentives, etc.)
Contact agents who have shown your home for feedback.
Enter accurate, complete data promptly into Heartland MLS.
Provide utility records to demonstrate ownership affordability.
Provide buyers with your Statement of Property Condition to avoid delays in a purchase decision.
Run a Heartland MLS “Reverse Property Match” Report and contact those agents with potential buyers via email and/or phone.
PROMOTE YOUR HOME TO BUYERS
Create a Home Feature Flyer and Booklet to distinguish your property from the competition. All houses are different and therefore need to be marketed differently. I will always ensure your property is marketed the best possible way.
Display your Booklet with Seller’s Disclosure Statement and other addenda needed for contract inside your property for buyers and other Realtors to access.
Tele-prospect to your neighborhood and “move-up” neighborhoods for potential buyers. Very few agents do this!
Advertise your home (including photo) in the Homes Magazine, Realtor.com, Homes.com, Zillow.com, and the Reece and Nichols web site. There will also be a virtual tour and pictures of your home listed on our web site, my blog, YouTube and other social media sites.
Send out Just Listed brochures advertising your home to surrounding neighbors.
Follow up on your showings and provide you with information on buyer response to your home.
Continuously update you on any changes in the market and their effects on the sale of your home.
Inform you of new, competing listings, changes in existing ones, and sales in your neighborhood.
Discuss pricing, buyer and agent comments, changes in marketing strategies if needed to facilitate a sale.
Schedule marketing updates, every 30 days, until your property is sold.
Pre-qualify all prospective buyers prior to offer presentation.
Promptly review and explain all offers with you. Negotiate the best possible price and terms for you & represent your best interests at all times.
MONITOR THE DETAILS OF THE CLOSING PROCESS
Manage the dates and events of the escrow process such as inspections, your property appraisal, repairs, buyer's loan application and approval, title search and coordinate your closing. Review your closing statement prior to your closing appointment.
ARRANGE TO RELOCATE YOU IF YOU ARE MOVING AWAY FROM KANSAS CITY
Introduce you to a top associate in your destination city. Locating and closing the top-echelon buyer requires extensive exposure to elite clientele and global contacts. The most important single element in reaching these distinguished property prospects is networking and the internet. By top echelon, I’m talking about the most likely buyer to buy your home.
THE BROKERAGE COMMUNITY
The key to marketing property is a thorough introduction to the brokerage community. Statistics prove that a spirit of cooperation and the exchange of information between brokers encourages the greatest number of qualified buyers. The primary networking system is Heartland MLS and our Website.
To launch my broker-to-broker networking program, I will arrange for qualified brokers within the community to familiarize themselves with your property through broker previews. A broker preview generates immediate excitement in the industry and allows qualified brokers to become personally familiar with the details of your property.
