Dave’s Pro-active Approach to sell your home

DAVE KIBBEY & ASSOCIATE’S 21 KEY POINTS TO GET YOUR HOME “SOLD”!!!

Orientation

Pre-Qualification conversation over the phone to discuss the reasons you’re considering selling or must sell, your level of motivation to sell, and what is important to you about selling your property.

 

Meeting

Meet with you at your home, tour your home in the eyes of today’s buyer. Discuss current market conditions & trends, inventory levels, and comparable property activity; Active, Pending and Sold properties in your area, and how these factors can affect the sale of your home. This discussion will facilitate you in determining timing, along with a listing price that both nets you the most money, and positions your home to sell in a reasonable time period.

 

Moving Forward

Once we decide both a listing price and to work together; seller signs listing agreement & statutory broker/seller disclosures in order to both start the process and  facilitate a totally transparent buyer/seller  transaction once we negotiate a deal.

 

Preparation

Determine if your home needs staging, and or upgrading inside, outside, landscaping, etc. in addition to de-cluttering if needed, in an effort to create the most desirable presentation to market your home at its highest & best value.

 

Photography

Our professional photographer will thoroughly photograph your property during the day, along with additional evening and aerial photography if needed based on the size and orientation of the property, to best accentuate marketability of the property. Professional photography is simply the most compelling way to showcase a sellers property. The better something looks the more people feel it is worth. Great photography creates a higher perceived value of a property which is critical especially in the luxury home market.

 

Story

Create a property description that truly accentuates your home in the eyes of a buyer and creates emotion. My goal is to get your property on a buyers short-list before they even step foot on your property.

 

Virtual Tour

Create a Tour-Factory Virtual Tour for your listing that provides a prospective buyer the ability to virtually tour the entire house, and grounds of your property. Additionally providing excellent online advertising exposure through the following sites: DesertAreaMLS.com, DesertEstateHomes.com, MLSListings.com, DupontRegistry.com, YouTube.com, Google.com, Zillow.com, Trulia.com, HomeDebut.com, CLRSearch.com, Homes.com, HotPads.com, HouseLocator.com, Oodle.com, OLX.com, PropertyPursuit.com, PropertyShark.com, Vast.com, and many more.

 

Signage

Install professional HOM Sotheby’s International Realty signage which generates calls. At any given time I have between 20-40 real estate signs throughout the Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, and La Quinta areas which generate lead calls & inquiries 24/7. (20% of my sales annually are generated through sign calls).

 

Brochures

My marketing dept. creates high quality, UV coated  full color professional tri-fold brochures for both showings and networking handouts.

 

Magazine

Depending on the season of the year, we run 2-10 pages monthly, (Bimonthly July-Sept) in Palm Springs Life HOMES magazine which is distributed throughout the desert, So Cal Coastal area, as well as areas in Vancouver & Calgary Canada. Depending on the value or significance of the property, a two Page, one page, 1/2 page, 1/4 page, or 1/6 page full color ad will be displayed.

 

Postcard Mailings

With our property description and photography, my marketing team creates high quality full color UV coated, high gloss oversized call-to-action post cards, mailed out to surrounding geographic areas, large past client list, center of influence, and top performing agents in the desert, Los Angeles & Orange County areas for additional exposure.

 

Online Exposure

Submit your listing & virtual tour to www.DesertEstateHomes.com, our local Desert Area MLS, HOM Sotheby’s, SIR–Sotheby’s International Realty websites providing bar-none the Highest & Best international exposure for your home, where over 90% of buyers find your home online today.

E-Blasts

We send out via email a “Newly Listed” interactive full color brochure with one-click-on-the-picture function, that directs that person to your listing on HOM Sotheby’s International Realty’s site which displays your full listing profile with anywhere from 25-100 large photos (based on the size of your property), full property description, virtual tour; to my top agent list throughout the desert and Southern CA, in addition to ALL HOM Sotheby’s agents throughout as well as my extensive past client database.

 

Prospecting

I personally call up to 100 contacts; neighbors, past clients, center of influence, and top real estate agents to share your new property listing, and either see if they may have an interest, or someone they know has an interest. Because of this highly effective pro-active effort I along with my team represent both buyer & seller on 30% of our transactions, I’ve Sold many homes by planting this seed!

 

Open Houses

I am a believer in exclusivity meaning a real buyer will call to see a home they are interested in. Moreover the National Association of Realtors states that 1-2% of homes are sold through open houses, and 98% are sold through exclusive previews of your home. However knowing there is a 1-2% chance, we are willing to hold intermittent open houses if you like.

 

Updates

We send out bi-weekly updates on the market and your home showing activities to keep you informed throughout the listing to sale process. For every showing via lockbox, we are notified electronically which agent showed your home, along with a detailed questionnaire asking the following: Opinion on property listing price, opinion of the property, whether a second showing is planned, whether they plan to submit an offer, and objections they had along with location feedback. These responses are helpful in keeping us informed, and whether our listing price is at market value.

 

Negotiations

1st Discuss offer with buyer’s agent, 2nd Discuss offer with seller to determine price, terms, and conditions of offer & Counter Offer if needed. Fight hard to protect your equity, and do my very best to secure a solid deal.

 

Escrow

Provide escrow officer all transactional documents, and follow-up through to closing.

 

Inspections

We schedule all inspections & re-inspections as needed to facilitate a totally transparent transaction, and negotiate on your behalf any and all repairs as needed.
