    • Dear Mr. & Mrs. Abrams, I understand that selling your house is an important decision for you. My goal is to help you sell your property for the highest price attainable and within the time frame that fits your plans. I represent a Brand that has stood for strength, integrity and trust for over 125 years – and this presentation will show you how I can put its significant business strength and unparalleled marketing advantages to work to provide a real estate transaction that is as effective, efficient, and stress-free as possible. Recently I have developed a Sales Plan to provide my customers with a quick and effective selling experience. My goal is to create an explosive marketing campaign that draws as much exposure as possible in the first few weeks. It is important the home priced right and advertised properly because the first few weeks a home is on the market are the most important. The sales plan is actually quite simple but requires a lot of diligent organizing and planning. I have a timeline of events to make the sale of your home a success! My hope is that you will enjoy the selling experience! I sincerely hope to have the opportunity to represent you. Sincerely, John J. Brink Prudential Gower Realty 727.742.7939
    • Identifying your goals Marketing your property Establishing a pricing strategy Preparing your property for sale Who we are
    • The process of marketing and selling your house must match your objectives, priorities and needs. In order to best serve you, I want to learn more about your plans and needs. The following topics outlined below can help me understand your goals and help us build a strong working relationship:  The agency laws that may apply as we work together in the marketing and sale of your property.  The objectives you want to achieve from the sale of your house and the support you expect to receive from me.  How the home selling process should be tailored to fit the characteristics of your property.
    • When real estate professionals work with buyers and sellers, “agency” relationships are established. There are three kinds of agency relationships:  Buyer’s Agent  Seller’s Agent  Disclosure dual agent When you agree to have me help you sell your property, I become your “seller’s agent”, which means I will work for your best interests throughout the entire process. When an offer is presented, the buyers will have a separate agency relationship with their broker.
    • Understanding your Expectations One of the most important factors that will contribute to the successful sale of your home is my knowledge of your expectations so that I may represent your real estate-related needs in an efficient and effective manner. Please help me understand your needs and expectations as they relate to the decision you have made to sell your property. This information will, of course, remain confidential.
    • Understanding your Expectations • Why are you considering the sale of your property at this time? • What transactional time frame are you most comfortable with? Is there a definite time by which your property should be sold?

What specific services and support to you look forward to receiving?
    • Each property has special features that may interest buyers. Please tell me about your house. 1. What do you feel are the most appealing features of this property? 2. What features does this property have that differentiate it from other similar properties? 3. What changes or enhancements would you suggest to make your property as salable as possible? 4. What do you regard as the most attractive features of the surrounding neighborhood ? 5. Do you have any special terms or conditions regarding the sale of your property I should be aware of (e.g., items of personal property to be excluded, etc.)? 6. Are you aware of any problems or concerns regarding the property or the neighborhood that will need to be disclosed to prospective buyers?

    • Exclusive Marketing Advantage WORLD WIDE BRAND RECOGNITION Prudential Real Estate is the only real estate network to share the name of its parent company. Our Brand is often associated with the words reliability and trust: important words that clearly resonate with the level of real estate transaction that you have in mind. PRUDENTIAL FINANCIAL Prudential Financial is one of the largest financial services institutions in the world, serving millions of individual and institutional clients in the United States and abroad; and has $500 billion in assets under management.[1] In addition, it ranks 57th on the Fortune 500 List of America’s Largest Corporations. It is this kind of significant global presence that predisposes people to doing business with our Brand.

PRUDENTIAL.COM AND INNOVATIVE MARKETING TOOLS More than 75% of prospective home buyers use the Internet to begin their home search.[2] What’s important to them?

    • Market-sensitive pricing can be the key to maximum market exposure and, ultimately, a satisfactory sale. The existing pool of prospective buyers determines a property’s value, based on:  Location, design, amenities and condition.  Availability of comparable (competing) properties.  Economic conditions that affect real property transactions. Factors that have little or no influence on the market value of a house include:  The price the seller originally paid for the property.  The seller’s expected net proceeds.  The amount spent on improvements. The impact of accurate pricing:  Properties priced within market range generate more showings and offers, and sell in a shorter period of time.  Properties priced too high have a difficult time selling.
    • An impartial evaluation of market activity is the most effective way to estimate a property’s potential selling price. A Comparative Market Analysis considers similar properties that: Have sold in the recent past This shows us what buyers in this market have actually paid for properties similar to yours. Are currently on the market These are properties that will be competing with yours for the attention of available buyers. Failed to sell Understanding why these properties did not sell can help avoid disappointment in the marketing of your property.
    • An asking price that is beyond market range can adversely affect the marketing of a property.  Fewer buyers are attracted, and fewer offers received.  Marketing time is prolonged, and initial marketing momentum is lost.  The property attracts “lookers” and helps competing houses look better by comparison.  If a property does sell above true market value, it may not appraise, and the buyers may not be able to secure a loan.  The property may eventually sell below market value.
    • SM Our exclusive Prudential Value Range Marketing can give your property an advantage over other houses on the market. BENEFITS FOR SELLERS: BENEFITS FOR BUYERS:  Increased marketing exposure for  Introduces a larger selection of your property properties to view  Eliminates the need for price reductions  Eliminates intimidation by a fixed price  Accelerates the sales process by  Allows searching within affordable price encouraging more offers ranges  Optimizes final sales price  Optimizes final sales price allowing true allowing true market forces to market forces to determine maximum determine maximum price price  Attracts more buyers  Attracts more buyers With Prudential Value Range MarketingSM, your property is listed at a fixed price, but marketed within a price range.
    • Traditionally, property owners desiring to sell their home have been limited to a fixed price when advertising their house for sale. By using the traditional method you run the risk of overpricing which can slow the process of selling your home and limit the number of buyers exposed to your property.
    • Properties marketed using PVRMSM can appear in many more “range of affordability” searches, exposing your property to more prospective buyers.
    • Prudential Value Range MarketingSM Requirements 1. PVRMSM does not require the Seller to accept any offer within the range, but the Seller does agree to counter any offer within the range with price and terms acceptable to the Seller. 2. The Seller may only use the Published Ranges. 3. All marketing and advertising materials for the property will read “Seller will entertain offers between (Low Range) and (High Range).”
    • By providing peace of mind to prospective buyers, these steps can enhance the salability of your property: Written disclosure A written property disclosure statement will give buyers a clear understanding of this property and the surrounding neighborhood. Home warranty A home warranty can give prospective buyers peace of mind by providing repair-or-replace coverage of major home operating systems and appliances. Professional home inspections Professional inspections, such as structural, roof and termite, will reveal the current condition of the 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: Exterior Interior  Clutter  Worn carpets and drapes  Lawn needs mowing and edging  Soiled windows, kitchen, baths  Untrimmed hedges and shrubs  Clutter  Dead and dying plants  Pet and smoking odors  Grease or oil spots on the driveway  Peeling paint, smudges or marks on walls  Peeling paint  Anything that looks old or worn
    • These tips can help your house make the best impression, every time it is previewed by sales professionals or shown to prospective buyers: Interior Exterior  Make beds; clean up dishes; empty wastebaskets.  Remove toys, newspapers, yard  Remove clutter throughout and put away toys. tools and other clutter.  Set out “show towels” in baths.  Tidy up; pick up after  Freshen the air; potpourri or baked bread pets. aroma; deodorize pet areas; set a comfortable  Park vehicles in the temperature. garage or on the  Do quick vacuuming and dusting. street; leave the driveway clear.  Arrange fresh flowers throughout.  Add color with flowers  Fire in fireplace (when appropriate). and potted plants.  Play soft background music.
    • No one has a more important role in the homeselling process than you. Here are some ways your participation can contribute to a successful sale:  Maintain the property in ready-to-show condition.  Ensure that the house is easily accessible to real estate professionals (lock box and key).  Try to be flexible in the scheduling of showings.  When you are not at home, let me know how you can be reached in case an offer is received.  If approached directly by a buyer who is not represented by a real estate professional, please contact me. Do not allow them into the property unescorted.  Remove or lock up valuables, jewelry, cash and prescription medications.
