My Listing "Package"
What I do to sell my client's properties...
in the best possible way with the least stress and for the most money!
While I'm always open to crafting a custom listing and marketing plan, this is my standard listing service...which is anything but basic...more like comprehensive and maximizing where it matters.
I have concluded that anything less than full service real estate services is not in my client’s best interests. I consider my standard service to be "Full Service", neglecting nothing of importance.
The “Big Rocks” of my listing service:
You are hiring an individual but you are getting the service of a team! Here are my primary team member contributors:
Marketing & Exposure
Primary Listing Profile
Careful, Accurate entry of property details to the Northwest MLS. Your review of our work is part of the process to ensure we have it right. Your property listing will be disseminated very quickly to many websites including our team website, Zillow, Redfin.
Showings and Feedback
At this stage of the sale, your property is active in the MLS and buyers are seeing it and scheduling showings. It is here that we “listen to the market speaking” and it does so with showings. Here is what I will do during this time.
There are usually two negotiations that happen in every sale. An initial negotiation that determines price, closing date, financing & any contingencies. And then most sales include an inspection negotiation as well, once the buyer’s inspector returns their report to the buyer. During this time, I usually provide a comprehensive "Net Sheet" so you will have a close estimate of your net proceeds from the sale.
My philosophy of real estate negotiation is this. I provide the best possible relevant information to you surrounding the present negotiation and then provide advising based on your circumstances and details of the sale. And then, armed with this information, you make the negotiation related decisions. I handle all communications and paperwork. You simply make the decisions.
Escrow Details, Appraisal & Closing
If there is work required as a result of the inspection negotiations or the buyer’s appraisal, I provide coordination services to help connect you to service professionals and ensure their access to get that work completed. Also, this is a good point to mention that I become your hub of communication for the transaction, constantly ensuring that all parties are communicating. The various parties include you, title, escrow, any appraiser, the buyer’s agent, service providers and possibly others. Also, I always make it a point to be present when possible to my clients final escrow signing appointments so as to be readily available for any questions or concerns.
