Selling a home in San Diego can seem overwhelming.
Our job is to work with sellers to make this process as simple as possible. We do this while obtaining the highest price possible in the sale, and limiting the time the house is idle on the market.
All Realtors® have most of the same tools. We all have the MLS and cooperate with other agents. The Team Sherman Homes Difference is we have an aggressive marketing plan. We will communicate the benefits of your home to the public, but more importantly to the other agents who are working with the qualified buyers.
When choosing an agent to sell your home check to see if they have the following:
- A website.
- If they have a website, is it easy to browse?
- Is there a search function for potential buyers to find homes?
- Does the agent have a featured listings page to showcase your home?
- Avenues for marketing your home
- What type of listing presentation do they have?
If the agent you are considering does not have any of the above you probably will not see results.
It is surprising how many agents still do not have a presence on the internet. The internet is one of the most powerful marketing tools a Realtors® has. If the agent you list with isn’t advertising listings, you won’t see results. A buyer can’t buy a home that they don’t know about.
A good listing agent will follow up on the showings of your home and provide you with tangible feedback.
Some agents use computerized systems to get feedback, an automated system that sends an email asking for feedback. We believe in the old fashioned way of talking to people. We have found in our experience if you ask someone to write something out they will generally write the minimum; but if you ask them for you to write it out they will give you more information.
For example, a client goes with their agent to your house and the automated message is sent out, they type their responses, such as just didn’t like the house. If we call the agent not only will they give me that info but they may tell me exactly what it was they didn’t like which might be something you are able/willing to fix.
Here are a couple of things we suggest to seller’s before listing their home. We can’t say we thought of these techniques but we do feel they are valuable suggestions.
