Marketing a home requires a specialized approach because each home is unique, the marketplace is always in flux, interest rates frequently change and new buyers search for homes each day.
In such a dynamic marketplace, you can get best sales results by working with Jeremy Ward Team, who can craft marketing plans tailored for individual homes, market conditions and buyers. We base our marketing efforts on extensive training, what has proven successful in previous transactions and ongoing research into industry best practices.
Selling can entail a variety of marketing strategies. At the Jeremy Ward Team we pride ourselves in providing one of the best comprehensive marketing strategies for selling a home in the Southern Indiana market. In our one on one meeting, we will explain our process in detail and provide you with a written marketing plan.
Preparation: Before being placed on the market, homes must be in "show" condition. We will recommend all of our clients use a professional home stager.
Pricing: We do more than price homes for sale, we also construct sale terms designed to hasten the selling process. It may be, for example, that a home priced at $150,000 with a 2 percent seller credit to the buyer at closing will be far more attractive to purchasers than a home priced at $147,000. Why? That 2 percent credit is worth $3,000 to the purchaser at closing - the time when buyers are most likely strapped for cash.
Marketing: We will execute strategies and programs to get the home sold. Typically this includes placement on the local MLS and real estate Web sites, as well as related marketing, advertising and networking. Open houses, office tours, agent access to the home via the use of a lock box and networking with both local and out-of-town agents are also common.
Much of our work will be quiet and unseen - yet important. The telephone calls, the work with contacts, the follow-ups with open-house visitors, conversations with ad respondents, the Web postings and other outreach efforts are all part of the process required to sell homes.
