Selling a Home

VALUATION

We start with an in-depth approach to the valuation of your home. No one knows your home like you. Our initial seller consultation includes a full walkthrough of your home, viewing the home through not only the eyes of potential buyers in the market but also identifying your home’s strengths and challenges so that we may develop a cooperative and strategic plan to sell it fast and for the most money. By the end of our meeting, you will have a strong grasp of how much your home is worth, either subject to proper staging, landscaping, and home repairs or in its current condition “as-is.” You will also understand the local market and your property’s price segment. You will have a firm understanding of how long it will take for your property to sell—we call this “exposure time”—and also an understanding of your estimated net proceeds at the closing, dependent upon the selected pricing and preparation options.

STAGING

Homes that are staged sell approximately 5 percent higher than homes that are not, according to a study completed by the National Association of Realtors. To ensure your home’s interior shows in its best condition and appearance, we recommend  home staging, or at the very least following our “do-it-yourself” best practices. How we present your home to the market is critical, and many times the arrangement of furniture, removal of personal belongings and affects, paint color selection, and even the atmosphere in the home can impact the home sale. It only takes one buyer to purchase your home, however, so to return the best value, we should market to the largest pool of buyers by making the home as appealing as possible. While many home sellers solely focus on staging the interior of the home, we should never underestimate the effectiveness of “curb appeal.” As a buyer approaches the home for the first time, the exterior of the home is their first impression. We want to ensure that their experience is not affected by an unsightly “to-do list” of exterior repairs. Fresh mulch, bright flowers, a trimmed lawn, and popular paint selections all augment the experience of the showing and increase the probability of a buyer falling in love with your home and offering top dollar.

PHOTOGRAPHY

We pride ourselves on the relationships we have with some of the best real estate photographers in Maine. HDR photography makes your home look sharp and provides a high-resolution presentation of your listing. Drone photography shows off your home’s location and setting—perhaps you have a pool, a significant amount of acreage, a setting with a city view, or direct water frontage.  3D-virtual tours utilizing Matterport technology are more important than ever before. Busy home buyers, relocating executives, and detail-oriented individuals focus on interactive tours of houses to make quicker decisions, having previewed your home through our cutting-edge approach.

MARKETING

Selling a home is not a passive endeavor. We will place a sign in your yard, put a lockbox on the door, and place your home on the MLS plus a few real estate portals such as Zillow, Trulia, or Realtor.com.  Marketing and negotiations are our specialties; after all, you are hiring a  professional Realtor. We use a targeted online ad approach,  reverse prospecting techniques, local market monitoring, and many more outbound sales techniques. Whether it’s networking with local agents, hosting an open house, or presenting your listing on social media locally or nationally, we do it for you.

BUYING A HOME

Buying a home, just like selling a home, is a much easier endeavor with the right preparation. While we certainly work with clients who are on a tight timeline, starting a conversation with our team well in advance of your anticipated move date will increase your chances to receive an accepted offer, especially in competitive markets.
