FOUR SELLING FACTORS

#1

• Proximity to schools, shopping, entertainment, and recreational centers

• The quality of local schools

• Proximity to employment opportunities

• What type of community is it?

• What is surrounding the property?

• Is it inland, waterfront or water view, a large lot?

Factors to Consider When Pricing Your Property
#1 LOCATION Location
Covering the Emerald Coast and Beyond
From Pensacola to Panama City Beach - we work in all areas of Northwest Florida!

#2 CONDITION

The Condition of your Property as it Compares to Your Competition is Critical!

Your home’s condition has such a major impact on its value that some buyers might pay up to $15,000 more for a well-maintained home.

If it’s not in good shape, your home will still sell, but you may have to consider listing it at a lower price or more days on market.

We at The Laurie Hollowell Team pride ourselves in getting the highest price possible for your property by providing:

• A Team approach

• Extensive marketing efforts

• Excellent negotiation skills

• An Outstanding level of service

When pricing your home, the Team keeps in mind...

• Your specific needs

• Your specific wants

It’s not about...

• What it cost to rebuild in today’s market

• What your neighbor has to say

• What another agent may have to say

Getting

Key factors to remember...

• The price you will get is determined by the supply and demand of the current market

• The location, condition, features and benefits of your property

PRICING RIGHT

The Dangers of Overpricing:

• Doesn’t show on a buyer’s Internet search

• Helps sell competitor’s property

• Discourages qualified buyers

• Reduces advertising response

• Discourages showings by other agents

• Extended “shelf-life” as the property appears stigmatized

• Attracts owner financing and bargain hunters

• Failure to appraise leading to mortgage rejections

• Eliminates potential offers

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY

The Laurie Hollowell Team utilizes some of the area’s top-notch photographers to highlight the BEST aspects of your home.

When a property is professionally photographed and presented in its best possible light, the listing attracts more views and a higher click-through-rate by potential buyers.

• Homes with high quality photography sell 32 percent faster.*

• Homes with more photos sell faster, too. A home with one photo spends an average 70 days on the market, but a home with 20 photos spends 32 days on the market.*

• For homes in the $200,000 to $1 million range, those that include high-quality photography in their listings sell for $3,000-$11,000 more.*

PHOTOGRAPHY & STAGING

You Never Get a Second Chance to Make a Good First Impression!

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development has determined that a professionally photographed home and use of staging helps sell a home for more money than a home that is not, and, it spends less time on the market!

MULTIPLE LISTING SERVICE - MLS

MLS is the Most Reliable Source for Details on a Property

Our licensed agents are legally responsible for making sure all information in an MLS listing is reliable and accurate.

Companies such as Zillow and Trulia pull their data from the Real Estate industry’s MLS systems. The Laurie Hollowell Team is your “boots-on-the-ground” crew - making sure everything is complete and accurate. We are always keeping your best interest in mind!

Buyers want to see a lot of photographs attached to the MLS listing which means more potential buyers view the home and draw more offers. We use the area’s best photographers for superior results!

WEBSITES, SYNDICATION & IDX

If a Buyer Doesn’t See It, You Won’t Sell It

The Laurie Hollowell Team is committed to putting your listing in front of millions of potential buyers and agents by syndicating to the most popular real estate websites and search engines.

• Internet Data Exchange, IDX, sends your property’s information to all our competitor’s sites. By hiring us, every real estate agent will have exposure to your property - regardless of what real estate brokerage they work with.

• More interest can lead to a higher closing price for your property. Take a look at some of the exposure we give each listing:

EXPECT SUCCESS! soldbylaurie.com • 850-269-1369

PRINT MEDIA & VIRTUAL TOURS

In addition to cutting-edge digital technology, The Laurie Hollowell Team utilizes traditional methods to promote your property including flyers, direct mail postcards, and virtual tours. These flyers are presented at your property, and, along with postcards and graphics they are sent via direct mail and social media to your neighbors and prospective buyers.

83% of home buyers report using social networking sites to begin their search for homes using Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram, Digg, NextDoor, Twitter, Reddit and Google Business.

REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS

“We have worked with Laurie and Jim on 2 of our properties and they were very thorough and professional. They did a lot more for us than I ever expected from a Realtor. I really appreciated how they were on top of things and how they kept us informed every step of the way.”

Princy Bucher - Purchase a home in Emerald Bay, Miramar Beach

“Jim and Laurie were fantastic for us! A great education on the area, great to work with, and found us just what we were looking for. Over and beyond our expectations.”

John Tablerion - Purchased a home in Lakeview, Santa Rosa Beach

“Thank you both for assisting us with the sale of our home and taking over from another Realtor. Your attention to detail and creative ideas were essential when we were beginning to get discouraged. With the loss of a dear family member, you stood by and allowed us time to grieve. For this, we are forever grateful. You and your team are one-of-a-kind and certainly exceeded all of our expectations.”

Hal and Barbara Gilley - Sold a home in Emerald Bay

“Laurie Hollowell is an excellent Realtor. This is the third home she has sold for us. We were well-satisfied with the selling price, the competency of Laurie and her Team, her communication with us, and the follow-up for every question we asked. She is a caring and considerate person. If I were to sell or buy in another place, I’d definitely call her again!”

Emilie Warner-Paille and Lynn Paille - Sold a townhome in Inlet Beach

“In your dealings, it is a rare find to have individuals with integrity. Not only does Laurie’s team exemplify this, they also are truly caring and genuine people!”

Walter Creamer - Purchased a condo in Tropical Isle

“At the time I was living in Las Vegas when I called and got in touch with Laurie and Jim. I could not believe that on the first phone call, I actually got Laurie on the phone! But the most important thing is they promised me a “smooth transaction” and it was. No question, they are the most professional and it shows when speaking with them. Thank you Laurie and Jim!”

Guillermo Gallindo - Purchased a home in Tuscany

“Excellent work Laurie! I cannot thank Laurie and her Team enough for the excellent work they did in selling my property. I had a small lot that was not going to yield much of a commission, but they treated me as if it were a million dollar estate. There was excellent communication throughout the entire process, and we were even able to do some of the paperwork remotely. One other really interesting service was the use of drones - Laurie provided aerial pictures of the property to see another perspective selling point. Thank you again!”
