SELLER SERVICES

If at any time you are not satisfied with my listing services, you can cancel your contract anytime-unconditionally. It is an unfortunate fact that today's buyers are inclined to litigate more than ever before. That's why it's so important to have a knowledgeable expert negotiating on your behalf, preparing a strong contract, alerting you to possible red flags and overseeing the entire process to its comfortable conclusion. I have close relationships with some of the best real estate lawyers in the city so I am constantly kept up to date on the complexities of contract law.

MARKETING PLAN OF ACTION-One of the most comprehensive in the industry.

OBJECTIVES 1. To get as many qualified buyers into your home until it is sold. 2. To communicate marketing and showing results weekly. 3.

Over 95 per cent of buyers look to the internet first when searching for a home. That's why it is critical that it be featured on a good website. My website currently enjoys a hugely prominent position in the google search engine. It gets tons of traffic and has earned its way to to the top. 3.

Hanging around during showings. 7. Smelly pets and odors. 8. Using hard sell during showings. 9. Regarding lookers as buyers. 10. Failing to recognize a good offer.

SHOWMANSHIP SELLS HOMES I can sell your home quicker and at a better price if I can stir the prospect's desire for your home by making it more attractive. Here are some tested tips to help you show your home to its maximum advantage. 1. Insure the curb appeal is what it could be by taking care of the little things like painting, cutting grass, litter and debris. 2. Make sure your home is spotlessly clean and looks like it has been well maintained. 3. Remove clutter and personable memorabilia that may only serve to distract the buyer. 4. Make sure there are no bad odors around. 5.  Do not hang around during showings and if possible try to remove children and pets.
