How to Sell my Home
Photos are the number 1 most important piece of marketing your home; they are the foundation for our other marketing efforts. We hire a company of professional real estate photographers to do a photoshoot with high-definition photos and a virtual tour. We also create a virtual showing in 3D that allows the homebuyer to walk through the home virtually. This technology is incredible, and it will enable the homebuyer to experience your home in private. When a homebuyer encounters your home in virtual reality, they are more likely to remember it, share it, and talk themselves into buying it. In addition to the photography and virtual showing technology, we create blog posts and marketing pieces for your home, neighborhood, and community. We tell a story with our photos and our words that invoke the emotions necessary for a buyer to feel excited about starting the next chapter of their life in your home. Once we have the storyline, photos, property descriptions, property snippets, blog posts, virtual tours, and virtual showings developed, we go through each of the major real estate search sites and optimize your properties placement. We link back to our terms, photos and descriptions wherever possible and create an experience that they will not forget.

Your Realtor should be informed and knowledgeable of your neighborhood.
Is there a park nearby? A shopping mall? Are there children in the neighborhood? What is the reputation of the school district? These are questions potential buyers always ask. We take the time to get to know your neighborhood and research the surrounding community so I can answer them. We pull together an information packet that includes background on the school district, area parks and recreational activities, local shopping and entertainment areas, churches, and any other resource material that may help market your home. We condense the information into a neighborhood fact sheet included in the profile booklets distributed to potential buyers. We have found that some of the most significant selling points can be as simple as a reliable babysitter on your block or a local park down the street.
Your agent should provide you with consistent communication.
Communication plays a vital role in the successful marketing and sale of your home. You need specific information, and so do we. Part of my commitment as your Realtor is to keep you informed of any significant developments regarding houses sold in your area, new listings in your area, changes in the real estate market, feedback and results from showings of your home, updates on marketing efforts, and planned activities as well as offers and interest expressed in your home.
