10 STEPS FOR A QUICK SALE

Setting yourself up for a quick sale involves many factors, but it can be easier than you think! Setting the right price is
essential to attracting buyers, but what else can you do to sell your home in the shortest amount of time? I am happy
to enclose this complimentary report on sales activity in your community, and would like to help you sell your home
both quickly and for the highest price. Here is a list of steps you can take to help ensure a speedy sale.
1. Price It Right from the Start! – A proper comparative market analysis can help you maximize the realistic asking price
for your home without scaring off potential buyers. My knowledge of your community can help you find the ideal
price.
2. Enhance Your Home’s Curb Appeal – New sod, colorful flowers, and a freshly painted front door will grab buyers’
attention. Curb appeal is everything when it comes to first impressions.
3. Update the Exterior and Interior – Keep things current so you don’t fall behind. New fixtures, fresh paint, and
updated landscaping are easy, affordable, and keep you on par with comparable homes in your neighborhood. I can
provide you with insight as to which projects will benefit the sale of your home the most.
4. Clean and Declutter – Prospective buyers should be able to envision their family in the house, not yours. The less
clutter around your home, the easier this will be, and the larger your home will appear.
5. Stage Your Home to Showcase Its Possibilities – Give roles to rooms which don’t have an ‘obvious’ use. Home
staging is the best tool to accomplish this goal. I can provide you with professional staging advice that will make a
lasting first impression on potential buyers.
6. Make the Property Easy to Show – Buyers want to discuss your home while on a walkthrough, and I can give them
the perfect tour. They don’t want to do it with you standing behind them. Pre-plan where you’re going to spend
most of your time when your home is on the market, so you have morning, evening, and weekend times available
for interested buyers to tour your home.
7. Remove Your Pets! – A potential buyer might not share your feelings for Fluffy and Fido. Pet hair and odor can be
a huge turn-off for some buyers. Have a place for your pets to stay when buyers are scheduled to tour your home.
8. Make Sure Your Listing is Prominently & Professionally Displayed on All of the Major Websites – With today’s
technology, many buyers want to view your home and neighborhood from the comfort of their living room. I can
market your home to thousands of potential buyers on nearly every outlet used by today’s buyers. I will also ensure
the content displayed is both professional and attractive to generate the highest number of interested buyers.
9. Get Professional Photos of Your Home – Potential buyers will probably see your home in a picture before they see
it in person. Get their attention at first glance! I can have professional photographs taken which highlight all of your
home’s most attractive features.
10. Showcase What’s Great About Your Neighborhood – Your neighborhood is often a big selling point with
prospective buyers. Amenities, schools, and other features can turn an interested buyer into a contract.
I specialize in the representation of homeowners from your community, and believe my knowledge of your local
market can ensure the successful sale of your home. If you require the services of a real estate professional in the
future, please allow me to outline how I can exceed your greatest expectations.

Debbie was always available to answer our questions. We had moved out of town and she made every effort to show the house. When offers were made she helped us complete the sale with no problems.

Debbie was so professional in handling all the details of my purchase of a home. She made sure I was informed of every step of the process as well as having patience with the changes necessary for closure. She had all the answers to making the process stress-free.

REAL ESTATE – THE INTERNET AND TOURIST SEASON

There was a time not all that long ago when a laptop and a smart phone were not required to conduct real estate.  It feels like that changed over night.  Now if you aren’t tech savvy you are losing business.  When I started my career I was in an office in the heart of downtown and people actually walked in to seek information.  This was a mere eight years ago.  Now 97% of the people looking for real estate begin their search online.

The internet has had a huge effect on how we conduct real estate, but it doesn’t stop there.  The internet has also had a profound effect on what we refer to as our “slow” season.  Summer time in Florida was a chance to kick back a bit, relax and perhaps plan a vacation.  Not so much now.  The internet knows no such season and as a result we stay busy year round.  Our northern friends have access to our market all of the time and they are online looking for deals.  Our roads may be less congested but the internet is going full speed.

I have moments when I long for those simpler days when we were not so dependent on technology but it is way of the world. It is adapt or go the way of the dinosaur.
