Working with Sellers
A Friendly Reminder
Selling a home is a lot more complicated than just finding a buyer. Please read the following carefully, to help you prepare for the quickest turnaround at the highest price.
What I Expect Of You
CLEAN UP and MAKE OBVIOUS REPAIRS
If you have the means to do so, this will make my job a lot easier and guarantee a better price in a shorter amount of time for your home.
AVAILABILITY TO SHOW
A house that is difficult to show is hard to sell.
REASONABLE SALES PRICE
I will provide you with comparables and an explanation of why, and at what price I think your home will sell.
If you overprice your property there's a good chance you'll wind up having to reduce the price anyway (after months of dissappointment and frustration) and your property may become what's known as “stale” on the marketplace.
When I list your home I will give you an itemized itinerary on how we are going to proceed with the marketing of the property.
You will receive a regular update on ad calls,open house activity, agent input, internet hits etc. But if it doesn't sell in 2 weeks, you have to be patient.
If it doesn't sell in 2 months we'll talk about what the problems might be and pursue other options.
If you're not happy, tell me!!! (If you are happy you can tell me too).
It's important to stay positive and to keep the communication channels open if we're going to reach our common goal–that "SOLD by DAWN DURAND" sign in front of your ex-house.
What You Can Expect From Me
My cell phone is on 7 days a week. When buyers call in response to my ads, I am available to answer questions and to show your home.
If I am unavailable, my partner or assistant will make sure no leads fall through the cracks.
I will share what I know about Pricing your home, Tips for preparing the house for sale, Marketing, Qualifiying buyers,Hosting Open Houses, Purchase and Sale Agreements, Negotiation tactics, Real Estate Law, Inspections, Repairs, Escrow, Moving…and about staying sane throughout the process.
The sale of your home will be advertised through the local MLS, newspapers, Northwest Homes, Pacific NW Magazine, on the Internet on Windermere’s website and on dawndurand.com as a FEATURED LISTING. Additional advertising will rotate monthly between The Real Estate Book and Harmon Homes (homes.com).
Most importantly it will also be on the internet websites of these publications, on the Windermere website and on dawndurand.com.
Windermere’s nationwide referral system gives me access to information about hundreds of people relocation specifically to this area, increasing the pool of qualified buyers for your home.
For an in-depth Marketing Package call, email, fax or write Dawn Durand.
As your listing agent, I will be the only one representing you in the sale of your home. Other agents bringing buyers are representing the BUYER.
I am loyal to my clients, acting in your best interests and keeping all information confidential.
I will sell your home as though it were my own, promoting all the positive aspects, acknowledging any pitfalls, providing comparables to substantiate the pricing and offering financing options if needed.
I will not quit until we've sold your house…and even after we've sold it, I'll still be there to answer questions and to help you with your future Real Estate needs.
