One mark of a great agent is how fast her homes sell compared to the market. We call this ‘Day On Market’. The better the Agent, the faster her homes sell. The average Days On Market for Summit County area in 2018 was 51 days. However, because of my aggressive marketing, my average Days On Market is only 4. In other words, my homes sell a full 12x faster than homes sold by the average Agent. What this means for you if you are planning to sell is, I can get your home sold faster.

My goal is to not only sell your home quickly, but also to achieve the greatest profit. In 2018, the average sales price was 98.02% of the original list price. My average sales price is 100.48% of the original list price. That’s more than two percent higher than the average Agent which translates to more money for you. That means I price my homes to suit the market the first time. During a 3-month listing, most of the traffic will occur within the first 2 weeks. Homebuyers will quickly spot a price that is too high and simply scratch that home from their list. It’s important not to let that happen to your home. As your Realtor it is my job to price your home right.

Once they find a home online they like, they visit in person. You can only sell homes to buyers who visit in person. That’s why the first impression your home makes online is so important — if you don’t make a great first impression, you lose the buyer before they even visit your home. Typical agents use amateur photos because they don’t realize the importance of the online impression. I use only professional photos. Professional photography shows off how beautiful your home truly is and gets many more buyers visiting in person. This is just one secret I use to sell my homes faster … and actually get more money.
Not only is my online marketing strategy aggressive but I implement the 4 P’s. Most other Agents only use a strategy of 3 P’s:
- Place it on the MLS
- Put a sign in the yard
I take it a step further and…
I will actively look for buyers for your home. Many buyers may already be working with an Agent so getting your home in front of other Agents is key to attracting buyers. In addition, I will spend time talking to your neighbors and members of the community to find out if they have friends or family members who want to own a home in your neighborhood. Last but not least, I communicate with and solicit feedback from everyone who has the opportunity to view your home. You can always learn something from feedback.
