Home Seller's Guide
Is it time for you to make a move - to start out on the road to the next place you'll call home? Once you've decided to sell you want the whole process to move quickly, to feel safe in the hands of your Real Estate agent and to get a fair market price for your property. As the top selling real estate agency in both Ulster County and Greene County* we can help you make that move.
It's best to leave home selling to the professionals. Sure she's cute! But does she understand the importance of and ins-and-outs of marketing homes? Does she understand Real Estate Law and have a network of professionals that can help you at every step of your real estate transaction? Well....probably not. You need someone who has training, experience and a support team.
Some important things to consider when selecting a real estate agent.
How will your home be marketed?
While almost every Upstate NY Real Estate agency will post your home on a variety of websites, there can be dramatic differences in the appearance of that posting. Listing appear differently based on advertising packages your agent buys and customizations they make to the posting. These factors can be the difference between your listing being upfront in a search, right where every buyer can see it, or buried so deep no one will ever find it. We've carefully developed a marketing plan that gets every possible eye on your listing and presents it in an appealing way. We give buyers exactly what they want -from high quality hd video tours to neighborhood information. Our marketing program has made us #1 in sales in Ulster County and Greene County*.
Will your agent have backup?
Of course you want to find an agent who you connect with, trust, and who has a great sales record (you can begin to get to know our agents by browsing their agent profile pages). But there's something else to consider. How overtaxed is your agent? There is a remarkable amount of marketing work to be done on every property listing from enhancing postings and checking accuracy on websites to filming and editing video. Then there are showing appointments to be made, showing feedback requests to be made, etc, etc, etc. At Coldwell Banker Village Green we believe our agents should do what they do best; sell homes.
We developed a special program called "MAP" (Marketing Assistance Program) for our agents. We have a tremendous support staff that handles many of the more tedious marketing tasks for our agents, and an out-of-house appointment staff that provides support for our support! Our agents have time for our clients and are free to focus their energies on cultivating buyers for our listings.
Real Estate marketing has gone so far beyond weekly print advertisements. You want to be sure that you list with a company who understands the intricacies of on-line marketing and exploits every on-line opportunity to your advantage.
