Our Marketing PlanMy system approach is designed not just to sell your home, but also to ensure that you obtain the highest possible price with the best possible terms. Full Service involves preparing your property for the market, professional photography, the pricing advice of the #1 Real Estate Office in the County, marketing, merchandising, networking and negotiation. This plan has been carefully customized to help you get top dollar for your home!
Pre-MarketingSome of the most important marketing is done behind the scenes before your home hits the market. I call this Pre-Marketing. Once you have decided to list your home with me and the powerful Coldwell Banker East, a whirlwind of activities ensue.
The first order of business is Staging your home to sell! I know, it sounds intimidating! But it actually can be a lot of fun. First and foremost, I will need you to declutter and organize. Then I will introduce you to my professional Stager who will tweak your furniture arrangement, help arrange your collections and make other valuable suggestions to make your home more marketable. Our goal is always to get you the most money in the shortest period of time. The Right Stager = More Traffic.
Professional PhotographyNext, comes the Professional Photography. The right lens, the right lighting the right artist to be able to showcase your home across the Internet so that Buyers want their Realtor to include your home in their showings. The Right Photographer = More Traffic.
We have to recognize that Pricing is not a science, no two homes are alike and timing has a lot to do with the value. To price a home, we are trying to predict what a buyer will pay in this market. Correct Pricing is essential to the Marketing of any home. Properly positioning your home based on the most recent buyer behavior will be critical to our success. Together, we will review the recent comparable sales. Additionally, after the Staging is completed, I will schedule a Pricing Team Walk-Through. Especially, when working with the #1 Real Estate Office in the Area, the power of the Coldwell Banker Westfield East Pricing Team is truly invaluable. You as the Homeowner will make the final decision on the Asking Price, but certainly, the Pricing Team will give you a good idea of what the “range” of opinion is. The Correct Price = More Traffic.
Once a Price is established, regularly scheduled market activity analysis will keep you abreast of inventory changes that may affect your position.
