Selling a house can be a complex process and we can help you at every stage, from setting a price, to marketing the property, to closing the sale.
Setting the Price
The selling process generally begins with a determination of a reasonable asking price. We can give you up-to-date information on what is happening in your local marketplace, as well as the price, financing, terms and condition of competing properties. These are key factors in marketing your home and selling it at the best price. Often, we can recommend repairs or cosmetic work that will significantly enhance the salability of the property and maximize the ultimate selling price.
The next step is a marketing plan. Marketing exposes your property to the public as well as to other real estate agents through a Multiple Listing Service, other cooperative marketing networks, virtual tours, and so on. In our market, a substantial portion of real estate sales are cooperative sales; that is, a real estate agent other than yours brings in the buyer. The greater exposure we can provide to not only potential buyers but our vast network of cooperating firms will allow us to sell your home faster and for top dollar.
We know when, where and how to advertise — which medium, format and frequency will work best for your home and your market. Not every property is the same, and rather than employ a standardized marketing approach that most national firms utilize we at The Real Estate Works believe that a custom marketing plan geared directly to the target audience likely to buy your home is most effective. The notion that a sign in the yard and MLS exposure is enough to sell a home in today’s market is false. The more competitive the market becomes the more your home needs to stand out from the competition.
When a property is marketed with us, all appointments are confirmed with you and logged through our dedicated appointment desk. All contact information of the firm showing your home, agents contact information, and time and date of ALL showings are recorded before access to your home is granted.
When an offer on your property is made we will objectively evaluate every buyer’s proposal without compromising your marketing position. This initial agreement is only the beginning of a process of appraisals, inspections and financing and more. We will assist you every step of the way to create a win-win situation that will be more likely to make it through the process of closing.
Monitoring, Renegotiating and Closing
Between the initial sales agreement and the closing, questions may arise. For example, there are unexpected repairs that require the buyer to obtain financing, or a cloud in the title is discovered. The required paperwork alone is overwhelming for most sellers. Your Real Estate Works professional is the best person to objectively help you resolve these issues and move the transaction to closing.
We at The Real Estate Works take great pride in our commitment to paramount customer service. This in turn means that you are working with an absolute professional who will act in your best interest to make the entire transaction, from start to finish, as smooth and stress-free for you as possible.
Why choose us?
One clear advantage of enlisting the help of a Real Estate Works professional is simply that you don’t have to go through it alone. We have the background and skills to help you through each step of the process and make the experience of finding, buying and moving into your new home as smooth, quick and enjoyable as it can be. Another advantage is that we represent a valuable source of information about trends, communities and neighborhoods and especially homes for sale throughout the area. Remember, not every home seller runs an ad in the local paper or puts a sign up in the yard. In fact, many homes actually sell before there is ever a need to advertise them. The market expertise of your sales professional offers you is augmented by access to complete, regularly updated information about every home listed by area sales professionals through the (MLS).
Your Real Estate Works professional will play many roles in the buying process. When you first talk to your us, we will ask you to do a wants and needs analysis, an exercise to help them better understand what you are looking for in your new home. We will discuss the timeframe of which you would like to purchase and the number of bedrooms, bathrooms and square footage you are looking for as well as any extras like a yard, a garage, storage space, a basement and anything else you might require in your home. All of our associates have lived in the area for years so they can help you choose the best neighborhood to suit you and your family’s needs.
Finding the right home for you
Once you have established your goals in the market, we will set out to find homes for you and arrange convenient times for you view the homes. New listings become available to us before they become available to the public, so if there is something specific you are looking for they will be able to stay on top of the listings and share them with you as soon as they hit the market, ensuring that you don’t miss out on your dream home.
Negotiating your purchase
At The Real Estate Works we are able to advise you on many details of a listing, including their history, the pricing, how long they’ve been on the market, the zoning laws the property falls into and what that will allow or prohibit you from doing and many other determining factors which will help you assess an accurate value of the home. We are able to pull historical data to perform a comparative marketing analysis, where they will compare your home to similar homes that have recently sold to determine if the listing price of a home is true to the market value or overpriced, to ensure you do not make a purchase that you will later regret.
We protect you from contract to closing
Once you have found a home you wish to purchase we will prepare all the necessary paperwork and guide you through the process completing the forms. We also have a large network of resources that will be required throughout the transaction including mortgage brokers, lawyers, home inspectors and insurance agents. This will ensure that you are always working with someone who is trusted and reputable in their field of work.
