You want it SOLD!
Let’s be honest – you’re online trying to find the least painful way to sell your home quickly and get the most you can out of your big investment. That’s our goal too, so let’s chat about how it’s done.
1. Prepare. Even before we put your home on the market we use strategy. The goal is to make a giant splash when we go live on the MLS and online so we’ll walk you through the setup details like;
*pricing your home properly – so it shows more value than the rest. We understand the market and we’ll help you interpret it.
*staging it to create desirability – what you don’t know can hurt the level of offers that come in. A few key changes help buyers perceive that your home feels larger and is worth more.
*professional photos of your home with PhotoShop magic grabs the attention of buyers on their phones – you have 1/10th of a second to impress them!
*paperwork explained – we give you the simple English version of all the contracts and documents so you can feel good about what you’re signing and what it means, even if you don’t “speak real estate”.
*hit the market the right day of the week – every day counts, literally, so we don’t just put homes on the MLS any random day. It matters when, and we’ll give you the edge.
2. Marketing you home. Your home looks great now, but who’s going to see it? Only those that know about it.
*Most buyers come from the internet. You need to be everywhere! At Utah Shores we syndicate our listings within minutes to 986+ websites like Zillow, Trulia, all the major home search sites, hundreds of brokerage sites, Facebook, blogs and even individual agent sites. We provide you with shareable graphics and links so you can let your circle of friends know too. We do DAILY NEW KLS ADS that keep your home at the top of the heap. This will be the best possible presence you can have online!
*Real estate agents sell houses, so you want to be in front of them. We know tricks that make agents want to show your house more than other homes. We meet weekly with our brokerage of over 200 of the most highly trained agents in the area, going through each listing and lining up buyers and sellers.
*High tech short cuts like a “text for info” sign and digital Supra lockbox tell us the details of anyone that wants info on your home. This also sends a subtle message that you (and your home) are updated. It’s simple for anyone driving by to text and digital access for showings means everyone who tours your home is tracked for security, feedback and follow up – and we call every single one.
*Video gets views and it’s just one of the ways we get your house in front of more eyes. We’ll put together a video of your home that helps people connect to your property. Our productions focus on evoking emotion in buyers so they want to know more. Translation: more showings quickly, more sharing and less time on the market.
*Better buyers come through filtering. When you clean up and leave the house to show it, you want people serious about buying to come through. We work with our preferred lender to quickly screen those who want to tour your house, so whether they are with an agent or just called from the sign, they are qualified to make a move! And you and your family can live the most normal life possible while your house is being sold.
*Open houses can generate extra buzz around your house. Should we decide an open house is the best way for you to market, we’ll create a schedule to promote your property to prospective buyers and buyer agents. We hold other area open houses so we may find a buyer for you, and we use peak times, bold signage and online ads to catch attention and draw traffic.
*Keller Williams is the fastest growing brokerage in the world right now and already the largest in Utah County. The name on your listing alone ads credibility to your home, and gives a comfort level to buyers that things will be handled professionally. It’s the new status symbol in real estate. KW has a private MLS (KWLS) that will additionally host and market your home.
3. Details through closing are what will finally get you to your goal of a completed transaction. We make your deal as bulletproof as possible.
*You’ll always be kept in the loop. You’ll know the status of our team’s marketing efforts weekly and be updated on the steps leading to a successful closing. You’ll always know what’s going on behind the scenes while your property is listed and under contract.
*We advise you on incoming offers so you can get an insider’s look on how good the deal really is. We’ll negotiate for you like a bulldog and help you secure a contract that meets your desired time frames and financial outcome. We specialize in this and we love helping you net the very most possible!
*We anticipate and capably remove many potential challenges before they have the opportunity to grow. We’ve seen a lot and recognize the warning signs. The complexities of your real estate transaction will be well-handled. We’ve got your back!
We guarantee your satisfaction. We won’t consider our work with you a success until you join the ranks of our RAVING FANS! We insist on exceeding your expectations and our easy exit guarantee allows you to end our relationship if you ever feel we don’t do what we say.
It can feel like the details are endless when you’re selling a property. We streamline the process for you, ensuring everything is completed as quickly and efficiently as possible.
