Service with Results: We will provide you with step-by-step assistance throughout the home selling process and sell your property for the highest possible price and under the best terms. Terry uses a proven marketing system with aggressive online and offline marketing plans and systems to ensure maximum exposure for your home. Here are just a few of the things we can do to market your home:
The "Your 3D Home" interactive tour allows buyers to virtually walk through your home without even getting off the couch. This amazing tool is especially helpful for letting out-of-town buyers and international buyers go through your home as if they were standing inside of it. It's an excellent way to showcase your home to prospective buyers!
Please find below the statistics for the Your 3D Home Interactive Tour for a home that we had listed in the month of January(typically a very slow time of year for real estate). This particular home received multiple offers after only 2 days on the market and sold firm for above the asking price after only 6 days on the market, but still received the activity below for the interactive tour:
Your home will have it's own unique website that is dedicated 100% to your home and your home only! This website will showcase your home by featuring the videos, virtual tour, photos, and the full details about your home.
We run multiple social media ads for all of our listings and each of the ads are targeted to very specific types of people in specific areas to generate as much interest as possible for your home. As you can see in the image above there were 26,673 people who saw the ad above. That's a lot of people looking at your home, sharing your home with the people they know who are looking for a home, engaging with the ad, and sending messages to Terry asking questions about your home and wanting to book a viewing for your home. ***The results above are typical results because it's what we do.***

The first time we meet, we will discuss what your selling objectives are and what is important to you. This is a good time to ask questions, and Terry will give you an idea of what to expect during the home selling process. We will discuss preliminary ideas for pricing and house preparations and Terry will review a detailed Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) for your property with you.
Once you decide that you are ready to make a move, we will confirm the important details such as pricing, the best features of your home, your preferred closing date, showing instructions, and so forth. Then we will review and sign a standard Listing Agreement. Contact Terry Now to Schedule a Free In-House Consultation.
Before putting your home on the market, we want to ensure it will be attractive to potential buyers. Knowing how to showcase and accentuate the best features of your home, without incurring unnecessary expense, is at the core of what we do. Terry will do a room-by-room review of your home during the initial meeting to point out any improvements that would give you the best return on your investment, and also arrange a detailed Home Preparation Consultation with a professional home stager. As we walk through your property, we will discuss minor repairs, curb appeal tips, staging, and making your property feel welcoming to potential buyers. We have a list of reputable and very reasonable contractors for painting, flooring, etc.. at our disposal to help you prepare your home for sale.
Pricing your home competitively, at the start, will create more activity among real estate brokers and buyers and lead to a more successful sale with more money in your pocket. In a Seller's market, when priced correctly and marketed properly we can generate multiple offers from interested Buyers and create a bidding war for your property.
Establishing the value and list price for your property involves researching and comparing similar properties and weighing important factors such as location, condition, amenities, and market conditions. We will discuss the different pricing strategies and arrive at a competitive price aimed at generating strong buyer activity and the highest sale price.
Understanding where buyers come from allows us to market your property effectively. Creating excitement in the marketplace through consistent and aggressive marketing efforts and integrating online and offline marketing is the key to a successful sale. We will remain in constant communication with you and give you feedback from all showings and activity. We will continue to aggressively market your home until it is sold! Contact Terry Now to Schedule a Free In-House Consultation.
The complexities of processing transactional documents will be made very easy for you through our continuous guidance and communication. We will review all offers and the terms of each offer with you and negotiate on your behalf so you can obtain the highest price for your home while limiting your exposure and protecting your best interests.
Once your home is sold we will provide you with a list of items that need to be taken care of prior to the closing date. Communication between us is imperative and I can assure you that you will be informed every step of the way.
Congratulations, you have sold your home! We will provide you with helpful moving tips and be there to answer any questions. We are always available to help you should a question arise after the closing, even if you have a question or need some guidance several years after the closing we are always here to help you in any way that we can.
