 CURRENT MARKET VALUE  - GET THE FACTS
 
When you have one of our agents or another company come over to give you a value on your home make sure they are using current information. In todays market information that is over six months old is too old. Prices are adjusting quickly and you need to price your home with a current information. A properly priced home in good condition will sell in a timely fashion. The term of the contract should reflect the average marketing time for your area.

DETERMINING PRICE

Location: Your home’s location will effect the price
Condition: Up keep and presentation of your property greatly effects price
Price and Terms: Price greatly effects how long it will take to sell your home. 
                     NOTE: Over pricing takes LONGER
You the seller have control over the condition & terms, a well kept home with good terms: SELLS FASTER

Your success in selling is also dependent on the quality of the agent you choose. You need to understand that an agent does not get paid until a closing occurs. So you should be concerned if your agent just puts up a sign, puts your home in the Multiple Listing Service and prays. We offer a full Marketing Plan.

Our agents:

1) Know how to get the best exposure for your property.
2) Most have a personal website.
3) Advertise in local publications, (Not the best way to sell your home but promotes the company)
4) Invest  in their own advertising
5) Take many pictures of your home and may put together a  You Tube video, once complete either are on
       the Internet for buyers to see.
      NOTE:  85% of buyers look to the Internet first and want to see lots of pictures or videos.
6) Know how to use a digital camera, there is no reason your home shouldn’t have lots of pictures, the only
     exception would be if you are selling a property that doesn’t photograph well

While no one can guarantee a quick sale an agent who performs like ours do will make your selling experience smoother, will cause you less stress and will provide the highest possibility of a successful sale.

WHILE YOUR HOME IS LISTED:

Your agent will be keeping you abreast of the activity on your home, with updates on calls and showing results and general market conditions. How often you would like to be contacted will be between you the seller and your listing agent.

Your home should be made readily available to show with a schedule being worked out when your home is listed. Our policy is to try to give 24 hour notice in all fairness to you but we will contact you with short notice showings just incase your home is could be made available. Every showing is important.

When you do have a scheduled showing try to spruce up as much as possible, since the initial listing of your property you should have taken care of any suggestions that your agent had made but day to day living usually requires some last minute attention. Try to leave during a showing, buyers feel much more comfortable without you there and will look more thoroughly at your home and not just a quick pass through. Your CENTURY21 Toomey-Lovett, Inc. agent will be there or a fellow associate to keep an eye on things and give the tour.
