REVIEW AND DISCUSS
Our first step is to review the property, discuss the recent sales activity and market trends to determine pricing to match your expectations and time frame.
We like to walk through the home with YOU, and discuss the best marketing approach, featuring highlights, along with addressing any potential concerns, with the goal of producing the best results.
We work with a team of consultants, to assist including: Appraisers, Design consultants, Feng Shui experts, home inspectors, cleaners, tradespeople and handy people to prepare your home for market.
Dave will typically walk through the property with seller to provide a few tips, point out possible fix ups, or areas of concern.
We offer complimentary design consulation and staging when we list a home to showcase it in the best possible light.
We conduct a detailed analysis of the property including information from city hall, B.C. tax assessment, neighbouring properties, local schools, parks, shopping and transit. We include this review in a booklet, for prospective buyers.
FEATURE SHEETS or BOOKLETS:
Our Feature Sheets are not simply high grade photos. We ensure they include detailed analysis of property for buyers.
We include all pertinent information to your property: city information available, lot and home sizes, warranty, improvements and any inspections to provide buyers the correct information first time round, which typcially increases the price of offers, and buyer's confidence in property.
One of the number one ways buyer's are introduced to properties. We like to post a professional For Sale Sign with Laminated Feature Sheet prominently on your property so everyone driving through the neighbourhood - and your neighbours - can help get the word out to people who want to live in your area.
We only allow your home to be shown to qualified buyers and report to you after each showing.
Showing Your Home:
We promote, advertise, attend showings and depending on the property, host by invitation or appointment only public open houses, realtor opens, and private cocktail parties.
Exclusive HomeLife Realty Office Tour Day:
When we first list a property we sign up for the Homelife Office Tour held each Tuesday. With an office of over 100 realtors, typically tours consist of 30 realtors are more, to get a first hand look and promote to their buyers. No wonder HomeLife sell a their listings in house.
Public Open Houses:
Years gone by, besides a news paper advertisement, "Public Open Houses", were the only way buyers could view a property, however with the internet including: Google Earth, Full Photos, Drones, Videos, Matter Port and Floor Plan, open houses are less and less effective to attract a ready, cash buyer. With the increase in population, there have been more and more situtaions of theft, and undesireables casing homes.
Qualified buyers typcially have researched your home on the internet and will book a showing with their realtor, that has taken their identification and confirmed their financial abiltiy to purchase the property.
Professional Photos - A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
What want Buyers to take action, by showing your properties in the best possible light, to promote ensure the confidence level of the buyer is high enough for them to take notice, book viewings or simply produce offers.
We provide high resolution photos.
Location, location, location to coin the old phrase, with live drones videos of the area.
We like to create live videos for buyers can experience a real life tour and maximize online exposure or matter port virtual walk throughs.
