  • 7. {SELLERSNAME}frequently asked questions I dont want to pay an agent’s commission. Wont I net more money if I sell my home alone? It would appear that way. But according to statistics, the median selling price of a home sold by owner was 15.4% less than agent-assisted transactions*. That means in most cases, agents pay their own commissions, and sellers still receive more money than if they had done all the work themselves. So typically with an agent, you net more money and free yourself from all the paper, details and legalities involved throughout the process. Are there things we should do to our home to help ensure the maximum price? Yes. There is a benefit to making sure your home looks its best prior to offering it for sale. There are also small remodeling jobs that will pay off at resale. Even if you choose to sell your home without assistance, I would still be happy to advise you about specific improvements that will increase your homes marketability and value. If I listed with you, how would you advertise my property? I dont just list homes; I market them. I will make sure your home is marketed to potential buyers around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As part of my 14-step marketing plan, I will customize a marketing plan to reach buyers most likely to purchase your home. I know how to maximize the power of the Internet for my clients, while also using traditional methods including newspaper ads, brochures, yard signs and direct mail. Will you be present at all showings? At open houses I, or a member of my team, will be there. For showings, potential buyers will bring their own agents to see your home. Most buyers prefer only their own agents be present when evaluating a prospective new home. What if another agent tells us they can get us more for the house? Some agents will quote a higher listing price just to get your business, but an overpriced house will not sell. If you choose to work with me, I will conduct a comparative market analysis prior to recommending an asking price for your home. I will explain how I arrived at the price, but ultimately the decision is up to you. I will offer my professional opinion on how the market will value your home. *Source: The 2004 National Association of REALTORS® Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers {AGENT NAME} • {AGENT PHONE} {AGENT EMAIL} • {AGENT WEBSITE}
  • 8. {SELLERSNAME}frequently asked questions continued … If I worked with you, would I have any responsibilities during the marketing of my home? Your primary job during the sale of your home will be to keep it neat and clean for showings and open houses. A large part of a homes appeal involves staging, which is everything from furniture placement to home fragrance. I will advise you on how to stage your home well, giving you easy tips and quick fixes to maximize your home’s appeal. Other than that, I will handle all of the advertising and marketing, screening of prospective buyers, offer evaluations, negotiation of terms of sale and management of your closing. What happens once we get an offer? I will help you consider each offer and negotiate the best deal for you. Once youve accepted an offer, I will guide you through the entire closing process and ensure everything proceeds smoothly. {AGENT NAME} • {AGENT PHONE} {AGENT EMAIL} • {AGENT WEBSITE}
  • 9. {SELLERSNAME}what I do for you All real estate agents will claim they can sell your house... I promise to sell your house at the maximum price, with minimum hassle. Selling a home successfully requires experience, time and resources. Experience From pinpointing an optimal asking price to writing a purchase agreement and negotiating terms of sale, real estate transactions are a science. Time Selling a home involves hours of open houses, phone calls and paperwork that you shouldnt have to worry about. I will take care of it all for you. Resources Yard signs, brochures, ads, direct mail and Internet technology. Keeping your home in front of potential buyers requires marketing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 82% of home sales are the result of agent connections Source: National Association of REALTORS® Selling your own home can be a daunting task. If you have questions along the way, Id be happy to help you.
