From my Fave Chair to Yours
In Real Estate, it is essential to have a solid list of Resources for Clients. Today as I’m reviewing my week, I have a couple of stories to tell you.
When I arrive at a Seller home, sometimes I encounter panic and distress about how to get the house ready for Listing. Please take a deep breath, I might say. We got this. Then the client starts to tell me the list of issues, and if I’m able to provide solutions for the list of concerns, then we can create a successful relationship regarding the Sale of the home.
Recently, a new listing I was working on required more setup time. The Seller needed a full house cleaning service for flooring & carpets and every other surface. Premier Services (call Todd 1-425-599-9670) came for a two-day cleaning project & did a great/reasonably priced carpet cleaning. Several years of no cleaning by the owner returned to look like “NEW.”
Next, staging the house by Poetically Featured Properties www.206staging.com. Set up was efficient and professional. The crew was on time and went right to work. Amazing transformation.
We called on Modus. They are raising the bar on service and technology as the Real Estate industry sees so many changes. They bring together other services that they coordinate. Zing Fix Founded by Realtors, who wanted to see that Sellers don’t leave money on the table. Zingfix provides the solutions to help get a home ready to meet the most demanding critics in the Buyer pool. It’s a program where a Seller could. Virtuance sent out the professional photographer. Quick to bring services to help me promote this home in the social media arena. Then there was a stove and microwave to replace, for which I headed off to Lowes to help with that. Also, quick to find me what was needed and get it delivered quickly.
Sellers want to get their homes on the market in the right way to take advantage of higher prices. However, planning is needed; that’s why I suggest we get started early with the conversations that lead to capturing the highest & best value for your home. In Today’s market, we have only about one months worth of inventory for buyers to select from. At the same time, Buyers want to take advantage of the current low-interest rates.
Many moving parts for Sellers to take advantage of this Sellers Market. This Seller’s market is expected to last into the Spring of next year.
Let’s start that conversation today. I’m available to help guide you by preparing your home for Sale with the partners I have at my fingertips; we can make it a fun & successful journey.
