Choose an Area Specialist!
Selling your home is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life. Your home is likely your largest asset & this may be the biggest financial decision you've ever made. It is one that requires significant thought and strategy.
Your first thought should be to find a Realtor who really knows your area! You will have many questions. How does our home compare to others in the neighbourhood? How much is it really worth? How long will it take to sell? What demographic has been buying in this neighbourhood lately, and what do they generally look for? The Realtor you select should have the answers to these questions and more!
It is my job to guide you through this complicated process, from beginning to end. I want you to get the maximum value for your home, within your best time frame.
Here are some tips to help you begin:
Overpricing your home means fewer showings and less offers. Avoid this by setting the price of your home at its true market value.
I'll help you price your home competitively .The first step I'll take is to generate a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) , which will show you a range of prices being paid for homes in your area. Together we will evaluate the differences between those homes & yours, and establish our asking price.

2. Make Your House More "Saleable"
There is only one chance to make a first impression on a Buyer!
I will make suggestions to you regarding how we present your home. This may involve having minor repairs done or some rearranging of the interior. I can call on professionals such as painters, cleaners, landscapers or home stagers and have done so for many clients. A little bit of up-front work may well pay off in the sale price achieved.
3. Use my Professional Marketing Program to Sell Your Home!
I work with my clients to determine a unique "Listing Action Plan", tailored specifically to your needs. This begins with an Automated Internet Marketing system which allows me to respond to every prospective buyer. On my website buyers get immediate information about your home.
Through my Personal Home Search, your listing will be sent to every potential buyer in my client base. I will continue to e-mail it to prospective buyers as long as your home is on the market.
As well as web-based marketing, I use tried-and-true techniques which have worked for me for 22 years! A combination of print media, Realtor Networking, Neighbourhood Networking, Flyers, Door-Knocking (and more)...I do it all!
As soon as you list your home with me, I will enter your listing in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) database. Other agents can immediately access your property information by computer. Other Buyers can access it right away, through my Virtual Office Website, located within this site.
