Did you know many of our clients this year are attracting multiple offers to their sale without any buyers setting foot in their property? Are you wondering how to accomplish this for your own sale? Here are a few helpful tips based on our work in this year's COVID-19 market.
First, get to know your market and determine the best price for your home.
We'll start off by discussing current market conditions and a smart pricing strategy for your listing. Depending on your price point and location, listings may be scarce. If you choose your list price wisely, you'll be able to leverage that scarcity and attract competing offers from a group of highly motivated buyers.
Next, start working on your staging.
We'll connect you with our home stager, Debbie Lea. Debbie will work with you remotely and make your home shine online when it's time for your virtual showings to begin. As part of your staging plan, Debbie may recommend purchasing a few accessories that add color and warmth to your presentation. We can help you order those items and have them shipped directly to your home.
Then we'll create the marketing that will make buyers fall in love with your home.
Once you staging is complete, we'll produce the visual media and marketing materials for your listing. Your visual media will include eye-popping professional photos and a slick virtual tour. We'll also create beautiful marketing materials that highlight your home's features and upgrades, and the benefits of living in your community. Your marketing presentation will inspire and inform your buyers - and give them the confidence they need to write a strong offer without ever setting foot in your home.
Depending on your listing, we'll include aerial and community photos, in addition to photos of your home.
Professional virtual tours
There are several different technologies to choose from. We'll help you choose the one that's the best fit for your listing.
Supplemental marketing materials
Feature sheets, floor plans and community info help buyers learn more about the benefits of your home and neighborhood. These extra marketing pieces give buyers the information and the confidence they need to write a strong offer.
Last, let the virtual showings begin.
This is where all of our planning, creativity, and hard work begins to pays off. Once we have several offers in hand we'll negotiate with all of your buyers and choose the one who offers you the cleanest offer and the best price. We'll also help you choose a buyer who has the financial security to make it all the way to closing.
