Initial Consultation: What’s My Home Worth? What’s Happening in the Market? What’s the Marketing Plan?
For some people, before they can decide if they want to sell their home, they need to know: (1) what their home is worth in today’s market; (2) what is happening in the current local market, such as how long it is taking to sell a home in their neighbourhood; and (3) that they have a Real Estate Sales Representative with whom they are comfortable working.
I recommend that sellers meet with potential Real Estate Sales Representative(s) and discuss all matters of concern before signing the Listing Agreement, to ensure that both parties understand and agree upon the expectations for pricing the home, the market activity and the relationship between the client and Real Estate Sales Representative.
So, when you are thinking about selling, call/text/email me to schedule an initial consultation. Ideally the initial consultation will take place at your home, so that I can take a look at your home and afterwards provide you with a free Home Valuation and Market Update Report to help you decide if now is the right time for you to move. At this meeting, I can also discuss my marketing plan and commission fee with you.
Most people hope that their home will sell quickly for the highest possible price and that the process will be smooth and trouble-free. In addition, you may have your own personal concerns about the selling process, relating to your work schedule, your children, your pets, your valuables and other matters. Starting at the initial consultation and continuing on throughout the process, I will be mindful of your concerns and together we will find ways to make the selling process suit your needs as well as possible.
