You can't afford to hire an agent that just puts your home on the market and hopes the right buyer comes along to buy it. Putting a "for sale" sign in the yard just isn't enough anymore. Even pricing your home perfectly isn't enough in today's market. With so many choices your home can get lost in the shuffle. Homes must be marketed to make them stand out from the rest of the pack. Florida Regional Realty's proven marketing plan will give your home its best chance to sell. Remember, when you work with a Florida Regional REALTOR® you pay no real estate fees of any kind unless your home is sold.
Like any good agent, your REALTOR® will provide the following to you at no charge: A "For Sale" yard sign, full color flyers (if requested), placement of your home on the REALTOR® MLS (the database that REALTORS® use) including full color photos. While this is the traditional way to sell homes, a National Association of REALTORS® study showed that over 87% of buyers started their search for homes on-line. To reach this large segment of buyers your home will be found on all the major and most minor real estate websites including:
REALTOR®.com - The number one website home buyers visit.
Zillow / Trulia - The number two site home buyers search.
YouTube - The number one video site and second most visited site on the internet.
Facebook and Twitter - With one click of a mouse you can add your MLS listing to these and other social networking sites.
For most of us, buying or selling a home is one of the largest financial transactions we make in our lives. You should be informed every step of the way and staying in touch with you is our highest priority. The real estate market changes rapidly so your Florida Regional REALTOR® will send you a new analysis of your neighborhood every month, email you every time a home in your neighborhood comes on or leaves the market and contact you when there is any activity on your listing. How did agents make appointments to see your home? In many companies, showings are made by contacting the agent directly. The flaw with this method is appointments are often missed if the agent is on or away from their phone. To ensure this doesn't happen to you, Florida Regional Realty has a service that is on duty 24 hours a day. An agent simply calls the showing appointment number on the MLS listing, the staff contacts you, and the showing is made.
When selling a home most people think their REALTOR’S® only job is finding a buyer, but finding a buyer and getting an offer is just the beginning of the home closing process. Getting that buyer to closing and the home actually sold is where our value to you will really become apparent. Offers and counteroffers, addendums and repair requests all follow an accepted offer, not to mention the slew of inspections required to get your home sold. Your Florida Regional REALTOR® will be there (so you won't have to take time off work) to make sure the survey, the home inspection, the WDO (wood destroying organisms/termite) report, initial and final walk-through get done within their specific timeframes because missing any timeline on any inspection allows your buyer to walk out on their signed contract as late as the closing table. They'll also be there for re-inspections of negotiated repair requests or any other time an inspector or repairman needs access to your home. Your agent will arrange where closing will be held and accompany you there to make sure things go smoothly. If this sounds like the way you would like to do business or you're interested in learning more, please contact us via email, text or phone.
