Over pricing your home is risky business.
My personal marketing and advertising is designed to attract buyers for all price ranges of homes.
My showcasing of your home in Realtor.com, exposes your home to the National and International home market.
There are 4 types of buyers that sellers should recognize. Each have their own motives and time-table.
A buyer’s first impression is most important.
I use a central showing service to make the appointment process seamless and more secure.
Centralized Showing Service (CSS) All showing agents will schedule appointments through this service according to your instructions. You will receive an immediate e-mail concerning the appointment. I also receive an immediate copy sent to my Blackberry. After the showing, CSS will follow-up to obtain feedback from the buyers agent.
It is important to have your home ready to show at all times.
I will provide one-on-one feedback to you (the seller) at least once per week.
We are currently in a buyers market.
Offering a full commission will serve you well and help you obtain top dollar for your home.

Scoring Homes and Home Valuation As part of my analysis, I help you price your home through a weighted score for each of the significant amenities of your home as compared to the weighted scores for the amenities of comparable and recently sold homes in and immediately around your neighborhood. This is a unique software program that I developed to help determine the price range and suggested asking price of a home using more objective criteria than what is normally used by other realtors.
