THINKING OF SELLING YOUR HOME? If you are like most people, you are excited or nervous, or perhaps a bit of both, at the prospect of selling your home! It is, after all, a significant milestone in your life. I’m looking forward to getting to know you and showing you all the wonderful tools, services and knowledge I possess to help you achieve your goals. Selling real estate is a complex business. Mistakes can be very expensive! Chances are you do not spend each day, every day, year in and year out, immersed in the real estate process, studying and working. This is what I do! Real estate agents come in all varieties with very different approaches and very different levels of experience, dedication, and quality of service. It is my pledge to you to bring you the highest level of professionalism, care, knowledge and integrity. My focus is you! I truly understand that when you are in the process of buying or selling real estate, one of the largest investments you will make, both an analytical and an intuitive understanding of the market is absolutely imperative. I have perfected my skills and knowledge in both of these areas! My understanding of the intricate details of home and community research, comparative market analysis, well-practiced negotiation, contract submission and time constraints, inspections and resolutions, title, survey and appraisal issues, all combine to give you better guidance and ultimately a stronger return on your investment.


WE START OUT BY LISTENING • Every home tells a story… what is your home’s story? How long have you been here? How did you find your home? What memories have you made here? • What do you feel are the most appealing features of your home and property? • What unique features does this property have that differentiate it from similar properties? What upgrades have you made? • What do you regard as the most attractive features of your neighborhood/location? What aspects of your current home do you most hope to find in your next home? • Do you have any special terms or conditions for the sale of your property? • Are you aware of any problems or concerns regarding your property or neighborhood?

Our time spent together will be all about ... YOU, your goals, what you want to accomplish, your needs, your timeframe. YOU and the SALE OF YOUR HOME! Help me to understand how I can best help you!

• What is your motivation and time frame for selling? • Do you have specific expectations as to the selling price of your property?

We Listen… We Understand… We Care…

• Are there specific activities you want to see included in the marketing of your home? • What were the most positive/negative aspects of your previous homeselling experiences? • What is the best way to communicate with you? What phone numbers and email addresses should I use?


We Make A Difference!

YOU HAVE QUESTIONS... WE HAVE ANSWERS • Who are we? • How long will it take to sell your home? • How do we market your home? • How much is your home worth? • How can we make a difference for you?

I will present a solid plan to sell your home based on its unique features along with extensive research of your neighborhood, comparable properties that are for sale, properties that have recently sold, and current micro and macro market trends.

• How do we protect you? • What do we charge?


Your investment is too great to cut corners! I can’t wait to show you what we can accomplish together!

OUR GOALS ARE... • to help you establish a well-thought-out initial list price based on an in-depth analysis of the current micro market around your home as well as an understanding of macro market trends,

• to expose your home to the broadest number of potential buyers possible in a manner that results in a maximum number of home showings,

• to provide excellent communication, tailored to your preferences, allowing you to understand where you are in the homeselling process and what your options are, then presenting you with complete information so that YOU can make informed decisions, and

• to negotiate the best contract on your home including price, but explaining the importance of additional terms of sale, as well as soundness of your buyer, to provide a seamless, hassle-free closing you can feel good about.


WE STRONGLY BELIEVE IN THESE SIMPLE IDEAS... • to treat our customers as we would want to be treated, • to go above and beyond in all endeavors… a thing worth doing is worth doing well, • to approach life and work with honor, integrity, enthusiasm, and dedication, • to always strive for self-improvement, and • to understand and hold dear the honor that is offered when a client trusts us with the purchase or sale of a home, and the responsibility that comes with that trust.


Before we even list your home, I have already STARTED working hard to sell your home!

START OUT STRONG • Research ensures accurate assessment of the benefits and features of your home. This is crucial in the development of proper pricing and marketing strategies. • Analyzing the inventory of comparable active properties and recently sold homes, along with micro and macro economic trends, allows me to develop a strong, effective plan to list and sell your home. • Researching tax and title information on your home, as well as special assessment, loan and utility information, allows buyers to feel comfortable with the total cost of homeownership, and helps ensure we have no surprises at the eleventh hour. • Gathering and presenting buyer financing plans helps buyers easily move from dreaming of owning your home to actually placing an offer on your home. • Recommending improvements for listing your home can help you net the highest price. • Detailing the listing and showing process, as well as the selling process, helps you prepare for showings, negotiations, inspections, title, survey, appraisal, and closing, with no surprises. • Understanding your concerns allows me to address what is most important to you.


SELLING A HOME IS SELLING A LIFESTYLE It’s helping people as they decide where their children will go to school, where they will shop and eat, how they will spend their free time, how long they will spend in their cars… it is listening, learning, and promoting community amenities that will be exciting to them!


Our marketing starts out by promoting lifestyles that can be enjoyed in and around your home, along with your home’s wonderful amenities!

Why work with an Alliance Real Estate REALTOR ® ?

PROFESSIONALISM... WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU • Working with an Alliance real estate professional can be the difference between selling your home and having it linger on the market… it can be the difference between realizing your full net equity and leaving money on the table… it is the difference that makes the difference. As your trusted adviser, I will guide you not only with valuable experience and advice, but with the collective knowledge of a team of expert advisers, from relocation, e-lead, marketing, closing and accounting specialists, to the best managers in the region! • Pricing is both a science and an art. An understanding of the market and comparable active and sold properties is imperative to proper pricing. Understanding local market trends and area business and environmental changes is impactful on the sale of your home. Having a sense of the unique features of your home, how they will affect a buyer’s mindset, and how listing and showing your home as ‘best in class’ will help you net the most money, will play a crucial part in the sale of this important asset. At Alliance Real Estate, we immerse ourselves in the factors and conditions that affect the sale of real property. • Marketing makes a difference. Our marketing is strategic and synergistic so that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. After considered pricing and positioning is established, our marketing tools and strategies go to work to expose your home to the most buyers, capturing their interest. • Negotiations are a crucial point in the sale of your home. My training and experience with contract negotiations means I am comfortable fearlessly representing you in the sale of your home. What’s more, company training and weekly dialogue regarding best practices and real-life situations means I am already familiar with and prepared for all facets of the home sale process.


UNCOMPROMISING VALUES Innovation With the latest technology, cutting-edge tools, and a global website that delivers the details of your home in 13 languages, 2 units of measure, and over 48 currencies on 5 continents and 37 countries, you can be confident that your home is getting the exposure it should, with a user experience second to none.

Keeping abreast of that subject matter, maintaining expertise in a dynamic and ever-changing world is definitely a full-time job. That is why classes, presentations, and studying goes on all day, every day in our offices.

Care Without heart, without care, without individual attention, all the knowledge and innovation in the world will not deliver the service you deserve. At Alliance Real Estate we are large enough to provide the tools, technology and service you need, but small enough that our leadership, managers, and fellow agents will know the details of your home, and will take an interest in making sure that you receive the best service and the best results!

HOW BUYERS FIND THE HOME THEY PURCHASE While 86% of all buyers find the home they purchase through their real estate agent, REALTOR® signs, or Internet advertising that REALTORS® provide, over 90% of all buyers begin their home search on the Internet!

Homebuyers may use several information sources in their search process, but they are most likely to find the home they actually purchase through a real estate sales professional.



28% 3% PRINT






* Source: National Association of REALTORS Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers





The effectiveness of print advertising has diminished over the years as Internet usage explodes. While homebuyers may start their home search by touring open houses, statistics reveal that less than 1% of homebuyers actually end up purchasing a home from an open house viewing. Understanding how homebuyers search for homes, and ultimately find the home they purchase allows Alliance Real Estate to market your home effectively to maximize exposure and facilitate a home sale!

COMPREHENSIVE MARKETING PROGRAM Property Preparation Assessment Staging your home for showings is key to a successful sale. Suggestions will be given about how to best showcase your home, generally and room-by-room. Attention will also be given to the exterior to maximize the home’s curb appeal to prospective buyers.

Pricing Strategy Solid up-to-date market information will be provided, including recent sales and current listings, to help you price your house realistically. Correct pricing is critical to the probability of a quick sale at the most advantageous price. Unrealistic pricing is the major cause of excessive days on market and “shopworn” listings – those that cause prospective buyers to wonder if something is wrong with the house. Overpricing actually helps sell competing houses by making those listings look like better values compared to yours. An unrealistic initial asking price for the house most often results in a below-market selling price.

Just Listed

Alliance Real Estate

Eye-Catching Signage Signage will be installed as soon as the house is ready to show and information about it is available in all eight Alliance Real Estate offices. A distinctive cabernet-colored “For Sale” sign will be placed at the front of the house, giving direct numbers that prospective buyers can call to get immediate information. Calls that prospective buyers make from the property signs and our unique voice/text riders often produce excellent prospects because buyers have already shown an interest in the neighborhood and in your particular property.


COMPREHENSIVE MARKETING PROGRAM Agent-to-Agent MLS Advertising Within 48 hours of a signed listing contract, your home will be placed in the MLS, reaching virtually every REALTOR® in the marketplace. Information about it is immediately sent to all agents’ buyers in the metropolitan area whose search criteria correspond to your home’s features. A front photo of the house will be submitted, as well as additional interior and exterior photos, to generate interest on the part of agents and prospective buyers who receive the MLS information. A descriptive paragraph highlighting the most attractive features of your house will introduce the property information listed on the MLS sheet. Photos featured in the MLS can be either “still” photography or a virtual media tour.

Agent-to-Agent Direct Marketing Alliance Real Estate features “armchair” tours, a virtual tour that allows me to present your home both visually and verbally, selling the great features to our agents during weekly office meetings. In addition, all REALTORS ® searching for properties whose location and amenities match yours will automatically receive information about your house.

Mobile Enabled Website Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Alliance Real Estate’s mobileenabled website allows buyers to access property info, pictures and the listing agent’s contact info directly on their cell phone. Other features include open house, neighborhood and school information. Try it now by browsing on your smart phone.


COMPREHENSIVE MARKETING PROGRAM Internet Advertising Reliance on newspaper advertising is decreasing dramatically, while the number of buyers who begin their home search on the Internet has increased to 90%. For this reason, we continually seek out new avenues for distributing your listing throughout the Internet, wherever buyers are searching.

Open House Promotions To achieve maximum exposure and create urgency, your house will be previewed by agents at a Tuesday “Agents Only” open house and at weekend open houses for the public, if you choose.

Email Marketing Homes that are held open on weekends are included in a “Weekend Open Houses” email campaign, which is sent to over 3,500 area agents and buyers. Additionally, we have an extensive database of agents and buyers that receive “New Listing” emails and market updates.


Digital Advertising Alliance Real Estate uses state-of-the-art digital tools to keep your home in front of buyers, wherever they are searching.

Targeted Social Media Advertising To increase exposure and engagement, Alliance Real Estate produces weekly ‘Great Listings’ ads on social media using targeted effective ad audiences to keep our listings in front of buyers. Additionally, Open House posts, Luxury Listing posts, and special listing advertising ensures our listings remain top of mind with active buyers.

COMPREHENSIVE MARKETING PROGRAM Marketing Materials Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Alliance Real Estate provides Sales Associates with a variety of exclusive marketing materials professionally created by our Marketing and Advertising Department. In addition to the normal photo listing sheets and MLS agent sheets, customized color brochures are produced and used to market listed properties to prospective buyers and agents. Brochures can be produced in a variety of formats to most effectively highlight property features.

Mail Promotions “Just Listed” e-cards or postcards may be sent to announce the listing of your home. Neighbors are a great source of potential buyers! They may know of family members and/or friends who have expressed interest in living in your neighborhood. Depending upon circumstances, an additional mailing may be sent, targeting potential buyers whose age, income, and housing demographics fit a pre-determined buyer profile.


THE WORLD IS WATCHING YOUR HOME Did you know that more than 200,000 homes are purchased by foreign buyers every year? Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices utilizes an elite network of powerful relationships, along with modern, effective tools to bring together buyers and sellers of distinctive properties from all over the world.

OUR TOOLS SET US APART Voice/Text Rider System Adults today spend 28% of their time online and on social networks. With so many people online, it is essential to market properties with easy access to information. I have invested in an Automated Property Marketing system to maximize your online exposure, which includes social media. When buyers drive by your home they can instantly access details through audio and pictures 24/7. They can also view school and community information. No other company in our community is offering this mobile service. Statistics show that the consumer is five times as likely to prefer voice over text so this system is particularly effective over traditional text rider systems. 76% of homebuyers drive by the home they are going to purchase. This system captures the identity of every potential buyer who inquires about your property and delivers it to me in real time. What’s more, 20% of all callers will instantly connect to me for more info. These are motivated buyers! By sharing this audio and video service to social media sites we gain even broader exposure of your listing! Social media content is created to showcase your home, incorporating listing data and photos. Posts, tweets, and ads are then published for new listings, open houses, price updates, and more! I can also track other properties your potential buyers are viewing through this system, better understanding what exact listings we are competing with, so that I can more effectively promote your home!


Personal Website/CRM Your home will be featured on my website. Buyers can instantly access community details relevant to your home. They can also see market information to assure them your home is priced competitively! My CRM allows me to reach out to these leads and stay in contact with them, notifying them of updates and any price changes relevant to your property. What’s more: When I hold an open house I can easily reach out to your potential buyers though drip marketing campaigns allowing me to increase the likelihood of a sale!

HOMEPARTNERS OF AMERICA Opening your door to a larger buyer pool helps ensure that your home sells in the shortest time for the highest price! We can sell your home through our Lease/Sale program.

UNDERSTANDING MARKET VALUE Market-sensitive pricing can be the key to maximum market exposure and, ultimately, a satisfactory sale.

Value to Prospective Buyers is Based On: • location, design, amenities, and condition, • availability of comparable properties, and • economic conditions that affect real property transactions.

Factors With Little to No Influence on Market Value: • the price the seller originally paid for the property, • the seller’s expected net proceeds, and • the amount spent on improvements.

Accurate pricing impacts: • the number of showings and offers generated. Properties priced within market range sell in a shorter period of time, while • properties priced too high have a difficult time selling..


DETERMINING A MARKETSENSITIVE PRICE An impartial evaluation of market activity is the most effective way to estimate a property’s potential selling price. A Comparative Market Analysis considers similar properties that:

Have Sold in the Recent Past • this shows us what buyers in this market have actually paid for properties similar to yours

Are Currently on the Market • these are properties that will be competing with yours for the attention of available buyers


Failed to Sell • understanding why these properties did not sell can help avoid disappointment in the marketing of your property



An asking price that is beyond market range can adversely affect the marketing of a property because...

THE DANGERS OF OVERPRICING Percentage of Buyers Who Will View Property










• fewer buyers are attracted, and fewer offers received, Asking Price in Relationship to Fair Market Value (FMV)

• marketing time is prolonged, and initial marketing momentum is lost, • the property attracts “lookers” and helps competing houses look better by comparison,




• if a property does sell above true market value, it may not appraise and the buyers may not be able to secure a loan, and • the property may eventually sell below market value.









Buyer traffic is our best indicator of how on-target we are with pricing.

ONCE YOUR HOME BECOMES AN ACTIVE LISTING If we receive... Virtual showings only: • the buyer pool is passing on your home because your home may be priced to sell the competition in the current market and needs a price adjustment. Some showings, but no offers: • buyers are finding other homes to be a better value and you may want to consider a price adjustment. Heavy buyer traffic with one or more offers: • we are on-target with our pricing.

YOU ARE THE KEY PLAYER ON THE HOMESELLING TEAM YOU have the most important role in the HomeSelling process! A successful sale of your home is helped by...

• maintaining the property in ready-to-show condition, • ensuring that the house is easily accessible to real estate professionals (lock box and key), • being flexible in the scheduling of showings, • letting me know how you can be easily reached in case an offer is received, • notifying me if you are approached directly by a buyer who is not represented by a real estate professional (do not allow them into the property unescorted), • removing or locking up valuables, jewelry, cash, and prescription medications, • leaving the property when the it is being shown, if possible, • securely penning up pets, or taking them with you during a showing, • being cautious about saying anything to buyers or their sales professionals that could weaken your negotiating position, especially regarding price or your urgency to sell, • collecting the business cards of real estate professionals who preview and show your home, and passing them on to me, • letting me know of any change in the property’s condition that would need to be disclosed to potential buyers, • being available to review the list price and condition of your property if it has not sold in a reasonable period of time, and • contacting me at any time with questions or concerns.

HOW BUYERS WILL SEE YOUR PROPERTY It is important for your property to make the best possible impression on prospective buyers. A relatively small investment in time, money, and effort spent putting the home in the best possible condition can lead to strong offers from buyers, with a significant decrease in days on market. I can provide you with a list of reputable contractors if needed. Ways you can tidy up the exterior include... • removing toys, newspapers, yard tools, and other clutter from your yard, • keeping your lawn manicured and free from pet waste, • keeping plants or landscaping areas free of weeds, • making sure exterior paint isn’t dirty or peeling, • keeping your driveway free of grease or oil, and • adding color with flowers and potted plants for curb appeal. Ways you can tidy up the interior include... • cleaning carpets and drapes, • keeping beds made, vacuuming, and dusting rooms, • keeping your home free of pet, cooking, and smoking odors, and freshening it up with deodorizers, • making sure interior paint is in excellent condition, and • arranging fresh flowers throughout, and opening drapes and shades to let in natural light during showings.
