You’ve decided to sell your home. You’re anxious to start the process, but you really want to make sure you have the right person working to sell your home for all it’s worth. Before anything else, it’s a good idea to sit down with an experienced REALTOR® and clarify your motivations and draw up a basic time frame and detailed outline of the selling process. But first, there are a few questions you may need to ask yourself before listing your home.
Why do you want to sell your property? Do you plan on simply moving to a larger home or property, or do you plan on moving to another neighborhood, school district, city or province? You might think your reasons are obvious, but it would be helpful for you to consider the implication of each option for your lifestyle, opportunities, and finances. Being clear about your intentions for selling will make it easier for me, as your REALTOR® to determine the most appropriate option for your specific financial, lifestyle and real estate goals.
When Should I Sell?
You should immediately establish your time frame for selling. For many sellers, it is an urgent matter and for others not so much. Obviously, serious sellers would like to sell as quickly as possible for the most amount possible. However, it is good to know what the most effective action plan is before listing your home. If you need to sell quickly I can speed up the process by giving you a complete market analysis and action plan to obtain your goals. If there is no pressing need to sell immediately, we can sit down together to thoroughly review the current market conditions and find the most favorable time to sell.
When you’re ready to take the next step toward selling your property, I’m here to help. My comprehensive sellers program will get your home seen by thousands of motivated buyers. Ultimately, my goal is to get your home the most exposure necessary to highlight its best features.
The Right Price
I’ll quickly put together a custom marketing plan with an effective price. A well priced home always generates the most interest. My market analysis takes into account the most actively searched prices and home values throughout your area, including expired listings and properties currently on the market.
The Right Exposure
In marketing your home, I develop your listing to emphasize the unique and sellable aspects of the property. Your home is then put in front of buyers by establishing it on the local MLS as well as broader websites, social media, new listing sheets, and real estate publications. Coldwell Banker’s global network of professional contacts and buyers will also have the opportunity to check out your listing.
Effective Internet Marketing
In addition, I’ll use the internet, numerous social media platforms and my innovative website to make your listing highly visible. With more than 80% of buyers checking the web first when looking for a home, this is part of your marketing strategy you can’t afford to miss.

When I list your home, I do so at no additional cost. When you start to get offers, I represent you during the emotionally charged negotiating process and ensure that you get the best price, and favorable closing terms that are clearly spelled out. As your professional aid, I oversee all paperwork related to the sale and every last detail from list date to possession.
