Help for Sellers
Thinking about selling your home or property anywhere in Dekalb County, on Center Hill Lake or in the surrounding region?
Every real estate company, every agent or broker in the area would love to get that listing. When you sign a listing agreement, you’re taking on a sales partner. Before you award that contract, you should be asking what are you getting in return for your listing? What will that listing agent, his or her broker and company do to deserve your business?
Here’s how we work at Center Hill Realty. As soon you contact us and schedule a listing presentation we’ll prepare a market analysis, showing you comparable properties and what they’ve sold for, and draw on our market insight to help you price your real estate to maximize its appeal. During that presentation we’ll also explain our marketing plan, and outline the innovative tools and technologies we’ve introduced into this market to better serve the needs of our selling clients. We can also provide candid advice on ways to enhance the appeal of your property in online tours and when prospective buyers visit.
When you decide to list with us, we’ll sit down together to complete the required property disclosure and other forms. Then, the details about your property are uploaded to the multiple listing service, along with a photo tour, for exposure to real estate professionals and all buyers interested in this area. When it makes sense, we also use video tours–mini movies of the property which play over the Internet- to give prospective buyers here or anywhere around the world a better idea of its appeal. These tour can also be distributed on DVD or CD-ROMs.
Center Hill Realty was the first real estate in this area to recognize the power of the Internet for promoting our listings. People today usually begin their property search on the Web. If a visitor to our Website wants to learn more about your property, get directions there, or schedule a showing, it’s just a mouse click away.
As much as buyers search the Web, they still drive around areas of interest to see what’s for sale. So the yard sign in front of your house will let them know its available and how to contact your listing agent. Along with these tools, our agents also use the expected mix of flyers, newspaper ads and featured listings in the popular Homes and Lands magazines to market listings.
As your representative, your listing agent will screen buyers to see who’s seriously interested and financially able to purchase your property, then arrange a tour of the property at your convenience. When a serious buyer makes an offer, your agent will serve as your representative, always looking out for your best interests, when negotiating with the buyer or buyer’s representative.
We’ve recently added a Web-based system for managing your transaction once you go to contract. Wherever, whenever they can log on to our Website, all parties to the sale simply enter an assigned password to monitor progress toward closing, correspond and collaborate, review contracts and documents, update records or scheduling. How’s that for convenience?
Center Hill Realty has consistently been the market leader in area real estate services. It’s a product of hard work, market insight, unrivaled professionalism and use of all available resources to promote the properties we represent.
We want your listing, too-make no mistake about that-and we believe we can earn it if given the opportunity to meet with you, discuss your goals and demonstrate our expertise.
So if you’re thinking about selling, please get in touch with us by phone or email. Any one of our team members will be happy to work with you
