What's My Home Worth?

 

 

Pricing

We will assist you with pricing your home to sell. We provide a complete market analysis of the most recent homes to sell in your neighborhood. What they sold for, how long they took to sell and what terms were negotiated. These recent sales determine the market value of your home. Most Sellers desire to sell at the highest price in the shortest period of time. But, every Seller's motivation is different. One may want to sell in a week, while another may want to sell in 3 months. The price of you place on your home will determine the length of time it will take to find a buyer. How we counsel you will be determined by your motivation and individual circumstances.

Staging

Preparing your home to sell is called "staging". When selling we want to accentuate the homes positive features and make it sparkle. We will go about getting your home ready to sell the way you would go about getting your car ready to sell. We'll clean, paint, prune, de-clutter and and make it look like a "model home". We'll help you determine which fix-ups are really important and which ones won't be noticed by a potential Buyer or won't bring you a return on your investment.

Multiple Listing Service

The MLS, or Multiple Listing Service is the most effective marketing for your home. This is where we notify the $3,000 Hampton Roads real estate agents that your home is for sale. The National Association of Realtors reports that 65% of all Buyers find the home they buy from an agent and the MLS.

Navy Housing Office

50% of the Hampton Roads population are military families. While on a house-hunting trip, these families are required to check in at the Housing Office. The Navy maintains it's own database of homes for sale and for rent in Hampton Roads. We will include in this database and have color flyers posted on all allowable bulletin boards.

Feature Sheets

When buyers view your home they will come with a computer printout from the MLS with the "nuts and bolts" about your home. We will provide them a full color flyer with photos and all the "bells and whistles" of your home. Included will be a financing sheet, school report, recent neighborhood sales and disclosures. We want to give the Buyer as much information as we can about your home so it will stand out from the other 8-10 homes they might be touring that day. The more information the buyer has, the easier it will be for him to make a decision without hesitation.

"Just Listed" Postcards

Full color postcards direct mailed to our target Buyer. We determine where the buyer for your home is most likely to come from and then market your home to him. This may include a your surrounding neighborhood, a lower priced neighborhood nearby, our database of prospective Buyers and our sphere of influence.

Home Cards

Full color business cards for your home will be provided to you to give to anyone you know. 18% of buyers come from what we call "Indirect Referrals". This is someone at work who has a neighbor who is thinking of buying a home. In other words, word-of-mouth. The Home Cards help heighten awareness that your home is for sale. You can give them to co-workers, post them on bulletin boards, hand them out at church or put them in the envelope when you pay a bill.

Internet

Your home will be placed on our personal websites, ButlerTeamHomes.comButlerTeamHomes.net, and AllVirginiaBeachRealEstate.com; our company sites: REMAX.com, Sell4.com and the major real estate portals on the web: Realtor.com, CraigsList.com, Trulia.com, GoogleBase.com, Oodle.com, BackPage.com, Zillow.com, Lycos.com, Geebo.com, Olx.com, Vast.com, ActiveRain.com, and others such as Yahoo classifieds and MSN classifieds.  

78% of buyers are looking for homes on the web before contacting a real estate agent. And this is growing everyday. Buyers enjoy looking at homes in the privacy of their own homes and at their convenience. We make your home available to buyers 24 hours a day.

Classified Ads

While not the most effective means of marketing your home - only about 8% of the buyers come from newspaper advertising - we have trained with marketing consultants learning how to make our advertising effective and profitable. We know how to hit the Buyer's "hot buttons" compelling them to call us for more information.
