Major Steps in the Selling Process
Find the Right Real Estate Professional
Real estate agents are important partners when you’re buying or selling a home. When you partner with Terry Realty Group we will provide you with accurate and the most up to date market data on homes recently sold in your neighborhood/area that isn’t easily accessible to the public. Our knowledge of market values and area trends, best marketing practices and negotiating skills can be extremely valuable. And most importantly, we know what it takes to get it sold quickly for the maximum price. We even specialize in selling properties that were previously on the market and haven’t sold. If you are ready of a new, fresh approach to selling real estate, contact Terry Realty Group today!
Determining Your Home’s Value / Pricing Strategy
With over 15 years of real estate valuation and pricing experience at every price point and during both up and down markets, Terry Realty Group has the competitive edge in developing the right pricing strategy for your property. We take the time to understand the unique selling points of your home and neighborhood, expertly research comparable homes currently on the market and that have recently sold, and prepare a pricing strategy for your home and your situation. We will also advise you about repairs and improvements that will maximize your asking price.
Preparing Your Home for Sale / Staging & Repairs
After we agree on a pricing strategy and complete the listing paperwork, it’s time to get your home in tip-top shape for potential buyers. As part of our in-depth home analysis, we may advise you to make certain repairs or improvements to increase your return on investment. Maybe it’s a coat of paint in the bathroom or a refresh of the landscaping. To make the process of preparing your home for sale easier and less stressful, we can recommend trusted, experienced contractors that can get the job done.
By far the best money spent when selling a house is to have a professional stager suggest ways to simplify a home’s interior, remove clutter and make the property appealing to the widest range of buyers. This is often accomplished by rearranging furniture or moving it to another room and removing personal items to make the home feel more spacious and inviting thus allowing perspective buyers to see themselves in the space. Need a stager? Just ask and we can recommend an experienced, professional stager with a keen eye for space and design.
Marketing Your Property
We don’t just list homes. We market them around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our marketing plan is designed to get your home the maximum amount of exposure in the shortest period of time. We use proven techniques to showcase your home to the right people—potential buyers and others that can help us find the right buyer. Since the majority of buyers start their home search on the Internet, we know how to optimize your home’s presence through our local MLS systems that ultimately feed to more than 340 Internet sites. Professional photographs, virtual tours and creative descriptions of your home’s unique features boosts exposure on Internet real estate sites. We also deploy more traditional marketing methods through Just Listed direct mailings as well as email campaigns to local real estate agents. The proof is in the results. Terry Realty Group’s listings on average sell for a higher sales price (as a percentage of list price) and are on the market for a shorter period of time when compared to the local averages.
Showings and Follow-up
Our job is to actively target through effective marketing the types of buyers most likely to have interest in your home. Your job is to make your home appealing to the broadest market and show ready each and every day. Completing recommended repairs, consulting with a professional stager and keeping your home tidy and fresh will broaden your home’s appeal. Here are some quick tips for sprucing up your home prior to a showing. As part of our commitment to keep our sellers fully informed, we will provide weekly updates on our marketing efforts including comments from buyers that have visited your home and data related to your market area/neighborhood.
Negotiating and Closing the Sale
We will help you consider and evaluate each offer and negotiate the best deal for you. After you have accepted an offer, we will guide you through the entire closing process to ensure everything proceeds smoothly. Terry Realty Group is committed to providing a comfortable, stress-free process from the time the For Sale sign goes in the yard until the transaction is successfully closed. Maybe that’s why more than 93% of our business comes from repeat clients and referrals. Good service speaks for itself.
