Seller Listing Considerations


Real Estate Listing Form

The most important step in selling your home is pricing it correctly right from the start such that the initial list price matches buyer expectations. Statistics show that the best opportunity to sell your home is often within the first few weeks of putting it on the market. Factors that go into determining the list price include location, recent sold data, current market trends and the home's special features that set it apart from the competition. An overpriced home typically takes longer to sell, helps sell the competition and usually sells for a lower price. Many qualified buyers shy away because they can go elsewhere and get more house for the money. The Landings Home TeamSM is trained to use advanced market analysis to build a comprehensive report that will accurately determine the optimal list price for your home. The Landings Home TeamSM provides a ListamateSM which is our recommended list price based upon MLS data and team knowledge of factors such as condition, location, view and home improvements of nearby comparable homes.


Beautiful Home Interior

In order to sell a home for top dollar, it must be in top showing condition before being placed on the market. Having your home in good repair and great showing condition will significantly improve your chances for a sale at top dollar. A home that is in ill repair or poor showing condition will be viewed by buyers as a work project and money pit. Most buyers today will want to do a drive by. Doing little things to improve your home's curb appeal will make a huge difference. As the old saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a great first impression. The Landings Home TeamSM is trained to help you identify and prioritize repairs and improvements that will provide the best return on your investment and we also offer a complimentary home staging consultation with each new listing.

In today's real estate market, it takes much more than placing a listing into the local MLS and putting a sign in the front yard. REALTORS® must design and implement marketing strategies and tactics to get in front of as many potential buyers as possible. Statistics show that over 90% of homebuyers start their search on the internet. It is critical for sellers to have maximum exposure of their homes on the web and are showcased with professional photography. Our marketing reach is extensive because we invest heavily in web, social networking, email, direct mail and print campaigns that feature our listings in all the places that today's buyers are looking. When you hire The Landings Home TeamSM to sell your home, we will develop and implement a customized marketing strategy to reach your ideal buyer.


A Couple Meeting With an Agent

If there is ever a good reason to have an experienced REALTOR® working for you, it is during the negotiation of your home sale. An expert negotiator can save you thousands of dollars and protect your best interests. When you receive an offer, having an agent with a proven track record of bringing buyers and sellers together can make a huge impact on your final sales price. This is the time when it is important to act quickly and decisively while employing sound negotiation skills. The excitement and interest level of the buyer are at a high point during this phase so it is important to remember that time is of the essence. Rather than approaching negotiations from an adversarial winner-take-all approach, try to focus on your top priorities and realize that real estate negotiations typically involve compromise by both sides. The Landings Home TeamSM are skilled negotiators with years of experience in bringing buyers and sellers together for a win-win situation.


People Exchanging Keys

One might reason that the selling process is complete once a seller and buyer have signed a sale and purchase agreement when in fact some of the most complex aspects of a real estate transaction now begin. Transferring ownership of a home is a complex, sometimes unfamiliar process that requires yet more decisions to be made by all parties. It can be stressful because lots of things have to get done in a short period of time, and there are potential pitfalls with major ramifications if anything falls through. The escrow process involves things such as a title search, appraisal, termite inspection, home inspection, flood insurance transfer and buyer financing. All of these matters are time-sensitive and require much attention to detail and quite possibly more negotiation. Once your home goes under contract, The Landings Home TeamSM will use their sophisticated online transaction management system to make sure that all parties follow through with their contractual obligations in a timely manner.
