Things to do in Washington DC: February 2008

What home owners want to hear and need to know are two different things

 WHAT HOME OWNERS WANT TO HEAR      

 

                                                                

Your home is the best looking house in the neighborhood.

Your home is ready to be put on the market now.          

I can sell your home in less than 30 days.

I am the best real estate professional in my city and state.

I will charge you less than the average 6% commission fee than traditional brokerages charges.

Your home will sell for xxxx amounts of dollars. I am absolutely sure about it. I can tell just by looking at your home.                                                            

WHAT HOME OWNERS NEED TO HEAR       

 

                  

Your home looks nice. But some light painting and some de-cluttering will make the house more spacious. Home buyers love to see houses that have a lt of space. They can't imagine how they will want to set up the house.

We need to bring in a professional home stager before we put this house on the market. A professional home stager will bring out the appeal of the house and make the house buyer ready.

If we price this house right along with a great marketing strategy,we should attract the best qualified buyer who will buy this house. 

As a real estate professional,I will use the Exit 84 point marketing strategy to sell your home. I know this neighborhood very well.

I charge 6% commission fee. A lot of real estate professional will not show your house if it is under 6% commission fee because it will be cutting into their commission. Pricing it 6% will improve the chances of getting many showings and finding not just the right buyer but the most qualified best buyer.

We need to do a CMA on your home. CMA is a comparative market analysis. CMA is not an appraisal. It is a opinion of value. I will compile data from comparables properties that are for sale,sold and expired to come up with the best list price for your property.
