Get moved on your timeline with an expert Realtor who “gets it”.

What are you doing differently with marketing listings than you did last year (before the market began to cool down)?

Nothing, because I never let my foot off the gas! All my listings get my full marketing package which includes the following + more:

- listing prep: consultation on decluttering, pre packing, staging furniture appropriately, and I bring in small decor touches like fake plants, art, shower curtains, duvets, etc to give it the right vibe

- encourage and help with choosing and executing modest upgrades (lighting, finishes) that will help home appeal to todays buyers (shortens listing period, increases excitement and price)

- professional photos, including drone stills of the exterior & showing property relation to downtown & train stations

- Matterport 3D tour

- floor plans

- carefully crafted write up about the home so buyers can envision what living there will be like — sell the sizzle, not just the steak

- multi-channel paid digital marketing, designed to “stop the scroll” and entice potential buyers to click thru for more info no matter where they’re browsing online.

- reverse prospecting / reaching out directly to the agents who’ve sent your home to their client via the MLS. It’s my chance to get them excited to sell your home to their buyers!

- review competition and market conditions weekly and discuss with clients, attempting to stay in front of the market rather than chasing it.

- handle incoming offers professionally and include the seller in negotiations, with the understanding that price isn’t the only term to be settled on.

- focus on the sellers’ goals of selling their home in their preferred timeline, and work collaboratively with everyone involved to make this a win/win experience for all parties, most especially the sellers and buyers.

How to increase home value?

I love being asked this question. There are so many ways to add value to your home, the most basic of which is decluttering, pre-packing, and giving the whole place a fresh coat of paint. Don't just go with any random color though -- your choice of paint color has an effect on the value and salability of your home!

This is just one of many reasons why we should meet up sooner in the selling process. You'll have a clear vision of what needs to be done to bring out your home's highlights and best features -- without breaking the bank. Schedule a call or visit with me!
