Control and Choice
- The objective of a typical agent is to make a sale, not at the highest possible price, but at any price. When there's a gap between the owner's asking price and the buyers offer, the typical agent will pressure the owner not the buyer.
- Let's say the sellers want $350,000. If a buyer offers $340,000, the agent will earn (at 3% commission $10,200 if the sellers accept. If the agent works hard in the interests of their clients and negotiates the buyers up to $350,000, they earn an extra $300. For the agent there's not much difference between $10,200 and $10,500, so there's little incentive to push the buyer higher but for the owner the difference is $10,000. In these circumstances the seller and agent are not on the same team.
- No more wondering what the agent is saying about you and your property at an inspection.
- You do not need to talk the price down to buyers, in order to obtain a commission at all costs.

Presenting Your Property
- Be available to receive enquiry! Nobody will buy your house if they can't get in to see it. Perhaps the most obvious thing - but we can't stress it enough.
- Presentation! Presentation!
- Wherever possible make sure that your house is clean and tidy for inspections. Little things like having the lawn mowed or the dishes done can make all the difference to a buyer's first impression of your home.
- Create an Atmosphere. To assure your home is at it's most appealing consider having coffee brewing or a cake baking during the inspection.
- Another note on presentation, maybe hold a garage sale to remove clutter from your home. You want to create a feeling of space.
- Don't try to be a smooth salesperson - just be relaxed and genuine with buyers.
- During an inspection, make sure not to rave to the buyers or go off on a tangent. Give the buyers your full attention and answer any questions they might have.
- Make up a brochure with details about your home to give to prospects. Buyers can sometimes view numerous properties within a day and this will help them remember. Display an open home flag yours.
- Make sure that your home is priced correctly. There is no bigger deterrent to buyers than an overpriced home. We will supply you with a CMA which will help determine the market price.
- When we do find a serious buyer, we will negotiate your sale and organize the contracts with your solicitor or conveyancer.
