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 today’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 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?











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.

94% YOUR MONEY 3% 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.


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.

THE POWER OF COMMITMENT Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions. And the actions which speak louder than words. It is making the time when there is none. Coming through time after time, year after year. Commitment is the stuff character is made of, the power to change in the face of things. It is the daily triumph of integrity over skepticism. Once one commits, providence happens, and things are able to fall into place. Here at Dudum Real Estate Group, we are committed to you!

OPENING DOORS OF OPPORTUNITY... It’s what we do. We look forward to opening doors for you!
