Home Sellers

For Home Sellers

Selling your home is one of your most imporatant financial transactions.  How much is your home really worth?  How long will it take to sell?  How do you deal with prospective buyers making unattractive offers?

As a top Realtor® team with years of experience and a proven track record in Glen Ellyn, Wheaton and other west suburban areas, it’s our job to guide you through this complicated process from beginning to end.  Our customized home staging and marketing techniques will convey your home’s full potential to the broadest range of qualified buyers. We want you to get maximum value for your home within your targeted time frame and with minimal stress.

Here are some straight facts that can make or break the sale of your home:

  • We sell homes 30 days faster than average.  From 2009 to 2012, the average number of days on the market was 104 days to contract and 145 days to closing.  Our average was 86 days to contract and 115 days to closing.
  • Our home sellers get more money on average than other home sellers.  From 2009 to 2012, the average percentage of sale price to listing price was 96%.  Our average was 97%.

We get great reviews from our clients because our marketing program, Enhanced Value Marketing™, gets results.  Here are a few of the ways we’ll make your home sale a success:

  • Prepare a free Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of your home to determine, with you, what your home is worth in today’s market.
  • Provide detailed advice on how to best present your home to maximize the selling price.  We also offer professional home staging services when needed.
  • Implement an extensive print and internet marketing program designed to give your home maximum exposure to prospective buyers and the brokerage community on a national scale.
  • Qualify prospective buyers’ ability to afford your home and meet your time frame.
  • Negotiate the sale contract with the buyer and their broker to achieve the highest possible price and best terms.  We also coordinate home inspections and assist the buyer’s attorney.

We are well-known real estate brokers in the areas we serve and are in constant contact with local buyers seeking to move up or down in price.  Nationally, we provide comprehensive relocation services for major corporate clients and regularly work with out-of-state buyers in all price ranges.

We call our home selling strategy Enhanced Value Marketing™ and it’s an ambitious marketing program.  It often involves working with sellers months in advance of putting their home on the market to ensure their home is presented to its best advantage.  Our marketing materials, both print and internet, are designed to maximize the home’s visual impact and generate excitement in the marketplace.

Don’t underestimate the power of presentation in selling your home. A few great photos of key rooms – your foyer, kitchen and family room – that can be seen across the internet will substantially increase the count of prospective buyers wanting to see your house. Today, many buyers create their “must see” lists exclusively from internet photos. We make sure you get this right.

Enhanced Value Marketing™ is specifically tailored to each client’s home and its unique features.  We make sure your home is seen by the greatest number of qualified buyers which always results in our clients getting top price.
