* 2022 NAR Profile of Homebuyers and Sellers
Most buyers perform extensive research on the internet BEFORE ever contacting a real estate agent or seeing a property. Rest assured, we have been trained to listen, be creative, and use proven online sales strategies to get your home sold quickly and for maximum dollar. We fuse high-tech with high-touch throughout the process, communicating with you regularly. Having a tailored online marketing plan for your home is a MUST!
Don't be taken by "gimmicky" real estate programs that "promise" to sell your home in a certain period of time - typically offering promises to sell your home in 60 or 90 days- one even in 5 days! The fine print usually requires you to make upgrades to your home and/or drop your price significantly. Either way, your bottom line is significantly impacted.
