My Professional Commitment Matters It’s said that the average person changes their career at least 3 times through their working years. With each change comes the utilization of experience, knowledge, life wisdom and personal choice. For me being a Realtor furthers my continued desire to; • be of service and make a difference in people’s lives, • be connected to values and positive outcomes, • fulfill goals using the multitude of skills and information I have spent my life acquiring. Doesn’t really sound like the stuff “salespeople” are made of but none the less, the best Realtors and the most satisfied clients know that all the above assertions contribute to what makes a dedicated and committed professional. Buying or selling a home at any stage of life is a formidable project that can take a long time and require enormous energy. Energy most people don’t have after taking care of their family and their own careers each day. My commitment to you as your Realtor is to manage, support and guide you through each step of the process in a way that leaves you feeling confident in your decision making and excited about your prospective outcomes. It is my goal to impress you with my commitment and service such that you will return to me with your future real estate needs and refer me to your friends and family.
WHAT JOANNEâ€™S CLIENTS ARE SAYING... We selected Joanne to help us sell our house and we are so glad we did. She had great ideas in marketing, staging and pricing our home, that resulted in three competitive, over asking, offers. She had an organized strategy, covered all of the bases, kept us safe in the process, and efficiently closed the deal. We are satisfied customers and highly recommend Joanne Scott H., Seller
My husband and I worked with Joanne on the recent purchase of our home and found her to be an excellent realtor. She was thorough, prompt, straight-forward and honest and offered us very good advice on how to make our offer. She also recommended a fantastic broker and helped us with the loan approval process making it all very easy and painless. Her understanding of the condition of the home we wanted to purchase was also very helpful in our decision making process. With a contractor husband, she is well versed in home repairs and improvements. Definitely recommend for your home sale or next purchase! Anna W., Buyer
Joanne recently assisted me with the selling of our home. This was a whole new experience, and Joanne guided me through it every step of the way. She is absolutely delightful to work with, always so responsive to calls and messages, and she really knows her business well. Her honesty, patience and concern with meeting my needs was so greatly appreciated. I admire her strong work ethic and her integrity. I would highly recommend her. M. Parker, Seller
My husband & I purchased our first home within six months of meeting Joanne. She won us over at an open house with her direct and honest answers to our questions. She crafted a creative offer that beat out our two competitors. She advocated for us when we needed her too. We are living in a neighborhood I never thought possible in part to her ability to get things done. Thank-you Joanne. K & S, Buyers
I worked with Joanne to purchase and sell my home in Clayton. In both experiences I was able to completely rely on Joanne for her follow up and thoroughness in getting the job done quickly and accurately. She is trustworthy, knowledgeable, flexible and a good person to work with. I would highly recommend her services to my friends and family, which says a lot. Michelle W., Buyer As first-time home buyers, my husband and I could not have been more pleased with hiring Joanne as our realtor. Because we had no prior experience, we feared that the process of home buying would be scary and overwhelming, but Joanne was very informative, thorough and helpful and our home buying journey was easier than we could ever have hoped for. Joanne was honest, open, and readily available to us whenever we had questions, and we are grateful that we had her to help us buy our Danville home in this competitive market! Thanks, Joanne! Sophie R., Buyer
We purchased our first home with the help of our realtor, Joanne. Working with Joanne was a joy. Joanne made the process of purchasing a home easier. She explained and educated us from the beginning and prepared us very well in facing the hurdles of purchasing a home. She was there in every step of the way. Everything she said became true. Joanne showed that she really cared about us and her main interest was to get the right house for us. She went out of her way to make that happen. Whatâ€™s more, she advocated for us and looked after our best interest in the process of negotiations. She communicated to the other agents our wishes and she defended us against all obstacles. Joanne was always easy to reach, was totally open to answer any questions and was flexible to meet with us. She is highly organized and professional about her work. At the beginning she told us to expect as long as 6 months to purchase the right house. We got our keys in the 3rd month working with her. Joanne is passionate about her work and has a lot of heart for doing things right and ethically. Her advice, great sense of humor, enthusiasm and patience is priceless. Raphael P., Buyer

â€œJoanne was amazing! I would recommend her to everyone. I was amazed how fast she was able to find a home for myself and my husband. She was easy to meet with even with our crazy work schedule. She was willing to spend the time -- showing us homes and even checking out homes if we seemed interested. When it came to the purchase of our home it could not have been easier. As a first time home-buyer she answered all our questions and our inspections were done in record time. She was very organized -- knew what she was talking about -- and most important, she wanted the best for us and put our needs at #1. If you want someone to work hard for you Joanne could not be better!! She found us our forever home!!â€? -Jessica L., Martinez
YOU ARE THE KEY PLAYER ON THE HOMESELLING TEAM No one has a more important role in the home selling 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. • If possible, do not be present when the property is being shown. • Securely pen up pets, or take them with you. • Be cautious about saying anything to buyers or their sales professionals that could weaken your negotiating position, especially regarding price or your urgency to sell. • Collect the business cards of real estate professionals who preview and show your home,and pass them on to me. • Let me know of any change in the property’s condition that would need to be disclosed to potential buyers. • Be available to review with me the list price and condition of your property if it has not sold in a reasonable period of time. • Contact me at any time with questions or concerns.

STAGING PUTTING YOUR HOME’S BEST FACE FORWARD According to the National Association of Realtors, staged homes sell 80% quicker and for up to 11% more money than non-staged properties. Staging also shortens the length of time a property is on the market. At Dudum Real Estate Group, we believe buyers tend to gravitate towards a home based on curb appeal and the first impression. That’s why we’ll work closely with you to ensure that your home is prepped and ready for sale before potential buyers see it. From creating an appealing walkway, to the removal of furniture to make a room appear larger, our agents will help transform your home into a viable product giving you the best advantage for a quick sale at your asking price.
STAGING’S IMPACT ON SALES PRICE On average, staging a home increased the final sales price by $54,382 in the East Bay. RETURN ON INVESTMENT While the average cost of staging a property was $3,305, the return on investment yielded $16.45 for every dollar spent on staging. OFFERS RECEIVED BY HOMEOWNERS Professionally staged homes received an average of 4.7 offers, while unstaged properties received an average of only 3.7 offers. DAYS ON THE MARKET Staging also shortens the length of time a property remains on the market. On average, in the Bay Area professionally staged properties in our sample were on the market 19 days, while their unstaged counterparts remained on the market an average of 23 days. In other words, unstaged homes stay on the market 4 days, or 26%, longer than professionally staged homes. PRESENTATION We believe you never get a second chance to make a first impression. Before buyers enter a home they may potentially make an offer on, the agent will work with you to ensure that all has been done to present your home in the best possible way to appeal to potential buyers.
PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY Photography is an important element of real estate marketing and is fast becoming the most essential one. More than 90% of todayâ€™s home buyers use the Internet to search for properties making professional photographs an important barometer in searching for a home online. At Dudum Real Estate Group, we know that great photography can draw in a buyer. A great photographer has the skill to always show a property at its very best. Working with distinguished photographers throughout the East Bay, we create a look that showcases your home at its highest potential to ensure that these spaces look as beautiful online and in print as they do in real life.
PRICING YOUR PROPERTY IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE PRICE YOUR HOME PROPERLY FROM THE START, WHILE BUYER INTEREST IS AT ITS HIGHEST.
Pricing your home is a complex task that requires the expertise of an experienced real estate professional. Consider the following: • If the listing price is set outside of the proper parameters, potential buyers may be deterred from considering your home. • Arriving at the optimal price requires evaluation and understanding of current marketing conditions, the marketable features of your home and recent trends in the real estate market. • The closer your home is priced to fair market value when it first comes on the market, the more likely it will sell quickly at the highest price. • The higher your home is priced above market value, the fewer number of available buyers.
Your Dudum Real Estate agent will advise you of the following factors when assisting you to determine a listing price for your home:
• What have buyers recently paid for similar properties? • Will this price attract enough attention from buyers to generate showings and acceptable offers? • What properties are competing for the attention of your buyers right now? • What properties have not sold, indicating what prices buyers are unwilling to pay under current market conditions?
BUYER INTEREST OVER TIME
WEEKS ON MARKET
A property attracts the most excitement and interest from the real estate community and potential buyers when it is first listed; therefore it has the highest chances of selling for the highest possible price when it is new to the market.
EFFECTS OF OVER PRICING “You never get a second chance to make a first impression. It’s extremely important not to miss the mark from the get go. Once the gates open, all systems & marketing should be accurate and ready to go.” - Julie Del Santo, Broker/Owner Overpricing your home will attract fewer potential buyers and may cause it to sit on the market for longer than desired. To the buyer, too much time on the market indicates an overpriced property and often is perceived as an opportunity to negotiate a price lower than the market might typically bear. Pricing your property outside of the reasonable range can have the following adverse results: • Low level of brokerage activity – showings decrease when a property is perceived as being priced “out-of-the-market” • Reduction in exposure – fewer buyers will view your property because it is out of their price range • Difficulty in obtaining financing – The property may not appraise, and lenders must obtain an appraisal to demonstrate fair market value. This will determine the amount the lender will finance and if the property does not appraise, they can require the buyer to make up the difference in cash, which they may not have. • Increased market time – your property is viewed as overpriced and becomes “stale,” even if price reductions are implemented. Pricing your home competitively at the start will create more activity among brokers and buyers, decrease the time it takes to sell, and ultimately yield you the highest possible price.
MARKET VALUE STRATEGIES STATISTICS HAVE SHOWN Timing is extremely important in the real estate market. The diagram below illustrates the importance of placing your property on the market at a competitive price from the very beginning. • There is a 95% chance of sale if a home is priced at market value. • There is a 50% chance of sale if priced at 5% over market value. • There is a 30% chance of sale if priced at 10% over market value. • There is a 20% chance of sale if priced at 15% over market value. • The seller can only set the asking price. The buyers will set the sale price.

WHERE THE DOLLARS GO...
94% YOUR MONEY 3% 1%
SELLING AGENT’S |COMMISSION
| MY COMMISSION
| BROKERAGE COMMISSION 0.5% | MARKETING BUDGET 0.5% | TAXES 1%
Understandably so, sellers often ask Realtors about the commission earned. Rarely do Realtors take the time to explain the complete breakdown of it all. At Dudum Real Estate Group, we don’t lose sight of the largest portion of the pie, nor should you. Be sure to focus on the 94%. It’s what counts most. It’s your money, and it’s the 94% that we fight to protect & increase as much as possible. As your Realtor, we don’t get paid until you get your price. Let us maximize your gain and keep the focus & marketing of your sale on your dollars; ultimately getting you the highest possible price. And with regard to the 6%, the smaller portion of the pie…compensation is divided amongst the agents (see above diagram), as each one plays an important part in the sale of your home. Beyond that, each agent has their own splits & costs to pay out in order to net them their final income from the sale.
...FOCUS ON THE 94%. IT’S WHAT COUNTS MOST. IT’S YOUR MONEY! IT’S THE 94% THAT WE MUST FIGHT TO PROTECT & STRATEGICALLY INCREASE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
DOCUMENTATION It is essential that the seller prepare all paperwork required before a buyer can put together their best offer. This can include the following: DISCLOSURES We will provide the Transfer Disclosure Statement to you and be with you as you fill it out, should you have any questions. Please note: it is required that you fill out this document yourself, to the best of your knowledge. Again, we will assist in gathering additional information when necessary. CONDOMINIUM OR CO-OP DOCUMENTS If your property is a condominium, loft, or co-op it will be necessary to provide the CC&R’s, By-Laws, Articles of Incorporation, budget, homeowners’ association meeting minutes for the previous twelve months, and any other information relevant to the homeowners’ association. TENANT-OCCUPIED PROPERTIES If your property is tenant-occupied, all information relevant to the tenancy, such as rental agreement(s), notice(s) of change in tenancy, notice(s) of rent increases, and recent correspondence with tenants should be gathered as well.
CLOSING COSTS: WHO PAYS WHAT? Closing costs are the various fees charged by the lender, the title company, real estate agents, and other service providers in order to complete a real estate transaction and are paid through escrow. Which party pays for specific closing costs can be negotiable between the buyer and seller.
