Are you ready for a new stage in your life?

You have certainly thought this over for a while. Call us today to list with us. Let us help you market your property in the most appropriate and effective way. The following steps will give you an overview of what to prepare and what to be prepared for when disposing of your property.

Pricing Your Property

Aiming for the right price is essential for successful marketing. Our goal is to sell your property for the best price in the shortest time. We use Comparative Market Analysis (CMR) to arrive at our price estimates. This method accurately and efficiently generates a fair market value for the property you want to sell. Major factors affecting the value of your property include:

  • Supply and demand
  • Seasonal market changes
  • Mortgage rates
  • Overall economic trends and conditions
  • The condition your property is in
  • Possibilities for development and zoning
  • And most important : location !

Documentation

To ensure a smooth transaction and fast closing right from the start, the documentation pertaining to your property must be complete:

  • Deed(s) of Sale
  • Property survey, or Certificate of Location
  • Most recent municipal & school tax bills
  • Deed(s) of Loan
  • Lender's name, address, phone, contact person, mortgage account number, rate, term and amortization period
  • Invoices for renovations and/or repairs done
  • Utility bills (electricity and water, gas, oil if applicable)

For a condominium or townhouse the following are needed:
  • Association's Declaration and Bylaws
  • Association's Certificate of Insurance
  • Association's current budget and reserves
  • Minutes of Association's meetings
  • Contact of the Association's administration
Your identity and contact information
  • Copy of your medicare card or driver's license
  • Your work number and email address
  • Spouse work number and email address
  • Neighbors phone number
Your thoughts and declarations
  • Any incident like leakage, water infiltration, water damage, flooding, fire, oil reservoirs in the grounds, issues with the septic systems or wells, whatever occurred in the past and has been fixed by a professional: now is the time to declare it. Buyers have a right to know as much as you would like to know when you acquire a new property. Trust us, a seller's declaration will work to everybody's advantage.
  • Attractive, exterior photos of home in other than the listing season if available
  • Your thoughts on special features of your home or community
  • Personal property which may be included in the sale-whatever you feel might have special marketing value to the average buyer
Items excluded from the sale

Visibility of your property to potential customers

The Multiple Listing Service (Centris) is a powerful tool and is accessible worldwide. Optimum presentation of your property on Centris is crucial to successful marketing. We are experts on this topic. You will get a copy of listing sheet containing the pertinent information about your property (price, lot size, room sizes, special features, taxes, etc. ) accompanied by professional photos. In addition to posting your property on Centris we ensure the following services to give your property optimum visibility to potential customers:
  • Within hours of a new listing, we will use our internal paging system to relay the pertinent details of your listing to our colleagues.
  • Lawn Signs
  • Broker Caravans
  • Internet Marketing on specialized websites
  • Display Advertising
  • Institutional Advertising (TV, Radio, Billboards)
  • Classified Advertising
  • Open Houses (if applicable)
  • Promotion of your property with various Chambers of Industry and Commerce if applicable
  • Participation in local and international fairs and trade shows

Showings

Customers who get interested in your property will want to visit. We will do our best to ensure that visitors are financially qualified and serious about acquiring your property and we will be present during the visits when necessary. To make your house as attractive as possible before the showings start, three factors are essential: light, cleanness and accessibility. Turn and weed the beds and trim the trees and shrubs. Lay new ground cover. Mend the fence and fix the gate latch. Pick up litter. Consider hiring a landscaping or lawn service. Discard virtually everything in the garage that has not been used for a year. Wash it down. Think in terms of a home that is clean, uncluttered, and spacious. At the time of a showing, remain discretely away from the buyers. They will feel more free to discuss among themselves.

Handling an offer

Any offer can lead to the sale of your property. Take time to respond to an offer, sleep it over before replying. Conditions on an offer usually include inspection, financing or the sale of the buyers's property. While the condition for financing should only be a formality because we pre-qualify our customers, other conditions could be more complex. Nothing is more embarrassing than an inspection report that reveals what you were trying to hide, ot did not know of yourself. The buyers can cancel an accepted offer if the inspection report reveals substantial faults in the structure or cover-up of damages. An offer conditional on the sale of the buyer's property does not prevent you from continuing to offer your property for sale.
