Market Preparation A Wise Person Once Said, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” Preparing for the market place: Enhance curb appeal – First impressions are critical. A clean, attractive yard and entry are a must. Plant seasonal colors, sweep the walk and wash or paint the front door. Eliminate clutter – Spaciousness is high on every Buyer’s list. Throw out and simplify. Organize and straighten all areas. The property should give the appearance of plenty of space for living and operating comfortably. Pack up, donate or throw away anything that is sitting on top of a countertop, a table or other flat surfaces. Spring clean – Rejuvenate your environment with a fresh coat of paint, neutral colors, clean windows and simple changes like a new lamp, shades or pillows. If anything looks dirty or tired, clean or replace it. Additional steps: • Staging and reallocating belongings can help bring out the best in the property. This helps Buyers better visualize the property as a future home and makes them more willing to walk through a property they saw online. Taking this extra step can make a difference in how a Buyer values your property. Per NAR, the top 5 rooms to stage are the living room (den), kitchen, master bedroom, dining room and bathrooms.

• Remove pets and pet odor. • Staging the exterior of your property is also important. Freshen up the paint, landscape with seasonal flowers and fresh mulch and store away all trash cans, recycle bins, water hoses, etc. • Beat the competition with condition. Fix items that do not work. Service items that are due for maintenance. Assure the Buyer that the property has been well maintained. • Identify the age of the mechanics of the property; HVAC, water heater, appliances, windows, roof, pool equipment, etc. • Provide the agent with a list of the dates of improvements, upgrades, warranties and transferable service agreements. • Identify monthly utilities. It is not uncommon for outof-town and international Buyers to be unfamiliar with utilities and/or carrying costs associated with the property.

• Kitchen and bathrooms should be immaculate. Spruce up with new towels or accessories.

020518.7.PMA

• Bedrooms should look inviting. A new bedspread and fresh linens can add appeal. • Allow the interior of the home to be the focal point. Put away high chairs, boosters, toys, workout equipment and medical equipment. Make sure items stored under beds are not visible.

Market Preparation continued Preparing for photos

Preparing for showings and open houses

• Illuminate the property with open draperies and shades. Turn on all the lights and be sure the outside is well lit.

• Be prepared to vacate the property. Having owners and children around is a distraction and uncomfortable for Buyers looking at the property. If possible, remove pets too or make arrangements with the agent to handle accordingly.

• Put away toiletries in bathroom, dishes in the kitchen and magnets from the refrigerator. • Remove pool equipment or a security fence from the pool.

020518.8.PMA

• If you do not want your child’s name or personal photos shown, please remove prior to the photo shoot.

• Explain your alarm system to us and any other entry/exit items. Notify the alarm company and/or neighborhood guard that the property is being shown for sale.

• Eliminate seasonal décor so the photos are not dated.

• Be sure to understand the showing process; give clear showing instructions. Make access easy and reasonable for showing the property.

• Remove vehicles from the driveway or the front of the property.

• Access is essential. Try not to decline showing opportunities unless absolutely necessary.

Seller’s Safety Tips It is our hope that the process will go smoothly and it will be a safe and secure experience. We strongly urge you to plan ahead and consider implementing the following safety precautions: Remove Valuables: • Put items away in a safe place, like a bank safety deposit box or at a family member’s home. • Obvious valuables include: jewelry, money, guns, checkbooks, electronics (camera, iPads, phones, and laptops). • The less obvious items to consider include: prescription drugs and any personal information or documents that could be used for identity theft. Be careful who you let in your home: • Do not allow any person that you do not know into your home. This includes a person who claims to have a scheduled showing. There should be no exceptions. • If someone says they are a Real Estate agent or a friend of the neighbor, have them call the Showing Department (713.558.3207) to schedule an appointment. • Give these instructions to your children, relatives or housekeeper. Security: • Keep all your doors locked and arm your security system. • Notify the neighborhood security/police that you will be placing the property on the market with a Realtor®. You may want to give the dispatch your contact information. Public Open Houses: • Discuss with your listing agent whether you feel comfortable with scheduling public open houses. Consider notifying the neighborhood security when open houses are scheduled, so that they can drive by and keep an eye on the event. • You may also consider on-site security/police presence.

020518.14.PMA

Finally, remember that good planning will prevent many problems. We take your property’s safety seriously!

Property Pricing Let’s Begin with what Matters Most to You – the Value of Your Property

Key Pricing Facts to Consider:

• Realistic pricing based on a well-prepared PMA will achieve the maximum price in a reasonable time.

• A property that is priced correctly from the beginning typically achieves the highest proceeds. • If the price exceeds perceived value by even a small percentage, potential Buyers may not even choose to view the property, let alone make offers.

• Properties that remain on the market for a long time often stop being shown. • The cost of improvements almost always exceeds the added value. The Buyers will determine the value of the upgrades.

• A low offer is better than no offer. Always negotiate any offer. Recognize and separate the

020518.16.PMA

emotional aspects from the business aspects of the transaction.

• Sellers may set expectations. The Buyers and market set the price. • If you want to sell in a timely manner, your asking price should always reflect the current perceived market value. Re-evaluate your asking price every 30 days with your agent.

C. Properties that are overpriced initially may ultimately sell for the lowest price.

020518.17.PMA

While the goal is to achieve the highest possible closing price in a reasonable amount of time, listing a property above market value often turns away prospects and decreases the likelihood of a successful sale (see chart A). An overly aggressive price prevents a property from taking advantage of a key driver in property marketing—timing. It has been proven that a property attracts the most excitement and interest when it is first listed (see Chart B). If a property is priced above market value, it does not appropriately benefit from this peak interest period. This may ultimately lead to a sale at below market value (see Chart C), or no sale at all.

Are buyers, renters being treated fairly? We no longer need laws to protect home buyers and renters from discrimination, but we’re not there yet. While I hope you never experience discrimination, know that federal law prohibits denying an individual or group the right to buy or rent a home based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, family status or disability. So, how widespread is housing discrimination in the 21st century? Fair housing organizations receive about 25,00030,000 complaints each year, according to the National Fair Housing Alliance (NFHA), a coalition of privately run fair housing groups. Yet, testing suggests there are more instances of discrimination — the NFHA estimates about 3.7 million annually. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has conducted thousands of tests in recent years. HUD uses housing organizations that send testers to view for-sale and rental properties as a means of determining whether landlords, lenders, agents and others in the

real estate community treat protected classes differently. Housing discrimination takes many forms, but here are a few real-world scenarios: • An owner or landlord falsely tells you that his property or unit is unavailable because of your religion; • An agent only shows you homes in one neighborhood because that area has a high concentration of residents of your race; • A landlord asks you for a higher deposit on a rental unit than other tenants because you have kids; or • A landlord refuses to accommodate your need as a disabled tenant, such as allowing a service animal or installing grab-bars in bathrooms. When people think about fair housing violations, they usually conjure up images of a slammed door or a restrictive advertisement. But violations of the Fair Housing Act are not only about a living situation or steering allegations. There are problems in the lending industry, as well. Because the lending process is so complex, it’s difficult to identify discrimination with any consistency.

state and federal law REALTOR VIEW require. However, the BY CINDY Code of Ethics recently was amended to HAMANN prohibit Realtors from discriminating against individuals based on their sexual orientation, in addition to the seven classes protected under federal law. Violations of fair housing laws are not always obvious or easy to detect. After all, unless victims are able to compare their experience to someone else’s, they likely have no reason to suspect any prejudice ever occurred. Fair housing laws do have teeth, however. So if you believe you have been the victim of housing discrimination, you can submit a formal complaint with HUD (visit HUD. gov) and any local private housing enforcement agency.

Martha Turner Properties

1986

The company becomes Martha Turner Properties. At a time when residential real estate was little more than a part-time dalliance for many agents, Martha envisioned a new kind of real estate firm grounded in knowledge of the market and the law. Every agent would be a committed, principled and experienced professional; every client would receive personal attention; and each transaction would be handled accurately and efficiently.

2014

Setting the Standard of Excellence

A Legacy of Service and Expertise Sotheby’s Has a Longstanding Tradition of Bringing Together Buyers and Sellers of Fine Property

Since Sotheby’s founding and inaugural sale of rare books in 1744, its name has earned renown as a marketer of the world’s most unique and valuable possessions.

This often means the difference between success and disappointment.

Information About Brokerage Services

11-2-2015

Texas law requires all real estate license holders to give the following information about brokerage services to prospective buyers, tenants, sellers and landlords. TYPES OF REAL ESTATE LICENSE HOLDERS: • A BROKER is responsible for all brokerage activities, including acts performed by sales agents sponsored by the broker. • A SALES AGENT must be sponsored by a broker and works with clients on behalf of the broker. A BROKER’S MINIMUM DUTIES REQUIRED BY LAW (A client is the person or party that the broker represents): • Put the interests of the client above all others, including the broker’s own interests; • Inform the client of any material information about the property or transaction received by the broker; • Answer the client’s questions and present any offer to or counter-offer from the client; and • Treat all parties to a real estate transaction honestly and fairly. A LICENSE HOLDER CAN REPRESENT A PARTY IN A REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION: AS AGENT FOR OWNER (SELLER/LANDLORD): The broker becomes the property owner's agent through an agreement with the owner, usually in a written listing to sell or property management agreement. An owner's agent must perform the broker’s minimum duties above and must inform the owner of any material information about the property or transaction known by the agent, including information disclosed to the agent or subagent by the buyer or buyer’s agent. AS AGENT FOR BUYER/TENANT: The broker becomes the buyer/tenant's agent by agreeing to represent the buyer, usually through a written representation agreement. A buyer's agent must perform the broker’s minimum duties above and must inform the buyer of any material information about the property or transaction known by the agent, including information disclosed to the agent by the seller or seller’s agent. AS AGENT FOR BOTH - INTERMEDIARY: To act as an intermediary between the parties the broker must first obtain the written agreement of each party to the transaction. The written agreement must state who will pay the broker and, in conspicuous bold or underlined print, set forth the broker's obligations as an intermediary. A broker who acts as an intermediary: • Must treat all parties to the transaction impartially and fairly; • May, with the parties' written consent, appoint a different license holder associated with the broker to each party (owner and buyer) to communicate with, provide opinions and advice to, and carry out the instructions of each party to the transaction. • Must not, unless specifically authorized in writing to do so by the party, disclose: that the owner will accept a price less than the written asking price; that the buyer/tenant will pay a price greater than the price submitted in a written offer; and any confidential information or any other information that a party specifically instructs the broker in writing not to disclose, unless required to do so by law. AS SUBAGENT: A license holder acts as a subagent when aiding a buyer in a transaction without an agreement to represent the buyer. A subagent can assist the buyer but does not represent the buyer and must place the interests of the owner first. TO AVOID DISPUTES, ALL AGREEMENTS BETWEEN YOU AND A BROKER SHOULD BE IN WRITING AND CLEARLY ESTABLISH: • The broker’s duties and responsibilities to you, and your obligations under the representation agreement. • Who will pay the broker for services provided to you, when payment will be made and how the payment will be calculated. LICENSE HOLDER CONTACT INFORMATION: This notice is being provided for information purposes. It does not create an obligation for you to use the broker’s services. Please acknowledge receipt of this notice below and retain a copy for your records.
