How Buyers Find the Home They Purchase How to use this page If the sellers are thinking about selling “By Owner” and are not convinced they need the help of a sales professional, this page can help you demonstrate the importance of your role. Also, by comparing the relative effectiveness of various marketing activities, this page can help sellers realize that daily classified ads will not do much to help sell their house. Open houses are great – sellers just need to understand how this activity compares with others in terms of buyer attraction. Note: In helping to establish the importance of your work, this page can be used in conjunction with three other pages in the Homeselling Proposal: • “ The Homeselling Process” • “ From Offer to Completed Sale” • “ How I Can Help You”

How Will Buyers See Your Property? How to use this page A successful sale may depend as much on the property’s condition and appearance as on the Marketing Plan or Pricing Strategy. Sellers can be extremely sensitive about their home, and pointing out areas that need attention requires tact as well as candor. This page will help you deal with this important but sometimes difficult topic. Try to help the sellers see their property from the buyers’ point of view . If possible, be prepared to share some real-life stories of the advantages of fixing up a property, or of what can go wrong when a property is not prepared for market. Suggested presentation points • “ When a property is on the market, it’s like any other product that is offered for sale. It needs to be packaged in a way that shows it off best to potential buyers.” • “ The old saying, ‘You don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression,’ was never truer than in the marketing of properties. A home’s appearance can have a dramatic effect on how quickly it sells, and on the price you receive. Here are some specific areas that can influence a buyer’s impression of a property.”
Show Off Your Home - Every Time How to use this page Every showing counts! Even if the sellers take care of all the home enhancement steps you recommend, a showing can be spoiled by dirty dishes or unmade beds. This is a checklist to remind the sellers of the fine tuning necessary for impressive previews and showings. Suggested presentation points • “ We’ll want your home to be just as beautiful as possible whenever it is seen, whether broker previews, buyer showings or open houses. First impressions really do matter, so your house will need to look its best on a moment’s notice.” Preparing Your Property for Sale Show Off Your Home - Every Time • “ Experience has taught us that the simplest things can spoil a showing, and that can be very costly. Here are some basic items you’ll want to take care of when a showing is expected.” • “ Whenever you’re going to leave the house, it’s wise to assume that it might be shown while you’re gone, so it’s always a good idea to put the house in prime showcase condition before you leave.”

How Will Buyers See Your Property? It is important for a property to make the best possible impression on prospective buyers. The following can interfere with a buyer’s appreciation of a property: <ul><li>Exterior </li></ul><ul><li>Clutter </li></ul><ul><li>Lawn needs mowing and edging </li></ul><ul><li>Untrimmed hedges and shrubs </li></ul><ul><li>Dead and dying plants </li></ul><ul><li>Grease or oil spots on the driveway </li></ul><ul><li>Peeling paint </li></ul><ul><li>Anything that looks old or worn </li></ul><ul><li>Interior </li></ul><ul><li>Worn carpets and drapes </li></ul><ul><li>Soiled windows, kitchen, baths </li></ul><ul><li>Clutter </li></ul><ul><li>Pet and smoking odors </li></ul><ul><li>Peeling paint, smudges or marks on walls </li></ul>A comparatively small investment in time, money and effort to remove these distractions can lead to stronger offers from buyers.
