Selling Your Home
Getting the most money for your home or property means doing far more than just putting a "For Sale" sign in the front yard. In a competitive market where new homes for sale are added daily, your listing needs to be seen in a variety of places in order to stand-out. Sometimes the right buyer is waiting out of state, or even in another country and they need to be able to view your home. To ensure sure your home gets market exposure, sells without a hitch, and for its' full market value, you need to consider working with a 2M Realty professional. It could mean the difference between no sale at all versus the pay-day you've been waiting for from your home.
2M Realty provides far more than just a sign in the front yard and an entry into the Multiple Listing Service. We expand the boundaries of traditional advertising to provide maximum exposure for your property. This includes a website with high organic rankings in the search engines, pay-per-click advertising, targeted html landing pages, generic "key-word" domain names that capture type-in web traffic, geographical domains names that capture market specific web traffic, and micro-targeted campaigns that focus specifically on properties that we list for sale. In some cases, we even provide an individual website designed specifically for our client's property.
To FSBO or Not To FSBO
In today's real estate market many sellers are concerned about having to pay real estate commissions. Because of this, For Sale By Owner (FSBO) can be a tempting way to try and sell your property.
FSBO sometimes works when the residential housing market is in short supply, home prices are rising, and buyer financing is readily available ...this is traditionally known as a “seller’s market.” However, those days have mostly gone, at least for the foreseeable future, and the sales pendulum has swung towards the buyer creating a "buyer's market".
In today's buyer's market, housing inventories are high and sales prices have adjusted downward to accomodate for the surplus of homes on the market. Home buyers are mostly calling the shots – so to speak, and now, more than ever, you need the help of a 2M Realty professional to effectively market your home and get you the highest sales price possible.
2M Realty has commission programs designed to work with you to provide the level of support you need. These programs range from full service plans where we manage entire the sales process to a flat-fee plan that involves minimal assistance from us but you can save thousands of dollars. To learn more about our commission programs, including our exclusive Flex-List™ plan, please contact us.
Seller Focus = Sold Properties
As your Seller's Agency, we'll quickly put together a custom marketing plan with an effective price. A well-priced home will often generate competing offers and drive up the final sale value. Our market analysis takes into account the most actively searched prices, and home values throughout your area, including expired listings, and properties still on the market. In marketing your home, we also develop a listing that emphasizes its unique and sellable aspects. We then put your home in front of thousands of buyers on the Houston Area MLS, new listings sheets, and Realtor publications. Our network of professional real estate contacts and buyers throughout the nation will also have the opportunity to check out your listing. In addition, we'll use the Internet, this website, as well as other marketing websites to make your listing highly visible. With more than 80 per cent of buyers first checking the internet when searching for property, proper internet exposure is a part of the marketing strategy you can't afford to miss.
Without the help of a Realtor, marketing your home can be time consuming and difficult. Advertising in the media is often expensive, and many buyers are reluctant to consider homes listed "For Sale by Owner".
When we list your home, we do so at no additional cost. When you start to get offers, we can represent you during the emotionally charged negotiating process and ensure you get the best price, with favorable closing terms that are clearly spelled out. As your professional aides, we also and take care of all paperwork related to the sale.
For most of us, our home is our biggest investment. When it's time to sell, get the value you deserve with help from one of our 2M Realty professionals. Please contact us whenever you'd like, we're eager to help sell your property.
