Here’s the 3 Keys to selling your home for more money in less time

  1. Preparation and planning
  2. Setting the right price
  3. Effective marketing

Sounds too simple?  Our research has proven that these three keys have the biggest effect on the sale of your home, especially in a sellers market.  

Let me break it down a little more.

Preparation and planning are the first steps in the process.  To get ready, you and I will take a long tour of your home from the curb to the backyard and every room in between.  I’ll help you see your home through the eyes of an ideal buyer to make sure that everything is in the best shape it can be.  

Will talk about things like potential repairs, decluttering, staging and anything else that helps us show your home in the best light possible.  Finally, we will put these ideas into a plan to get your home ready to sell and help you find ways to get it done in the shortest time possible. 

The next step is setting the right price.  This is where we have a definitive advantage in the market.  As a preferred agent for many banks and asset management companies, they value my experience and skill at determining the best price to list a home for sale.  I’ve performed thousands of price opinions over the years and will give you the same information that I share with my banking clients.  

If you set the price too low, you end up leaving money on the table.  If you price it too high, then you home never sells.  You need “Bulls-Eye” pricing and that’s what I will give you..

The last key is Effective Marketing.  If you had a choice, wouldn’t you choose to work with someone who wrote a book on real estate marketing?

I take a two prong approach to marketing your home.  The first approach is to get your home in front of as many people as possible.  Think of this part as casting your net far and wide.  The second approach is to market your home using laser like precision to people who are your ideal clients.  

Our goal is to create a frenzy of activity around the sale of your home during the first ten days it is on market.  This level of excitement is what’s needed to get the best possible price for your home.  

When it comes to marketing your home, we use all of the latest technologies and proven tactics for bringing you the best qualified buyers.

The Daily Deal in Nashville is a home that I sold a few years ago.  It's in the part of Franklin that very close to West Nashville.  Great location and listed for less than $460,000.
