Top 7 Reasons to hire the Hargreaves Home Sales Team to sell your home
1. We are PROACTIVE not REACTIVE
Most Realtors follow the 3 P’s when they list a home: they Put up a sign, Put it on the Multiple List Service (MLS) and PRAY! The Hargreaves Home Sales Team takes a more proactive approach. Of course we’re going to put up a sign, put it on the MLS but we don’t stop there. We begin actively searching for the right buyer for your home. We are holding opening houses, we are mailing postcards to neighborhoods that we predict your buyer is currently living in, we do targeted Facebook advertising and we are making phone calls to people currently renting. We are out looking for that buyer, not waiting for them to come to us.
2. We are planning for the end at the beginning
We aren’t interested in listing your home, we want to SELL your home. With that in mind, we start with the end in mind. We begin before we ever meet you by researching your particular neighborhood and analyzing market data. When we meet you and see your home for the first time, we know what needs to be done to help you compete in your market. We will set realistic expectations for you regarding price and timeframes. We will give you advice on preparing your home for sale so that the entire transaction
3. We help you get ready
Once you decide to list your home with our team, the next person you will meet is our stager. We send a stager to each of our listings for a one hour consultation. At this consultation, the stager will walk through your home with you and help you see it from a buyer’s perspective. She will leave you with a list of things you can do to help make your home more appealing to the public. You can choose to do as much or as little as you are able to do but keep in mind, the more you do, the more your home may sell for!
4. We market your home
After the staging is done and the professional photographer has given us amazing pictures of your home, we can start our marketing campaign. This campaign is tailored specifically to your home but almost always begins with a series of open houses, postcards and online ads. Brandon has over 20 years of experience representing a variety of builders in the area so he knows what it takes to properly market your home.
5. We negotiate
When the offers start coming in is when we really get to shine. Melissa has received extensive training to become a Certified Negotiate Expert (CNE) and Brandon is a licensed Associate Broker. Together, they will work diligently to negotiate the best deal possible for you! In this strong seller’s market, it’s important to have someone knowledgeable to negotiate on your behalf.
6. We will help you with what’s next
When your home sells you will likely need somewhere to go! Our buyers agents are waiting in the wings to help you find the new home of your dreams. Whether you are moving nearby or across the county, downsizing or need more space, we can help you with that next move. By working with our team for the buying and selling process we can ensure a very smooth transition.
7. You become our client for life
After the transaction, we don’t go away. We are always here for you as a resource to help you with contractor recommendations, market questions, etc. Our clients become our friend and we treat them like family.
