In addition to effectively marketing the property, the single most important determinant of whether the property will sell or not, is setting the right price for the property. From my years of experience, I have a vast knowledge of the inventory– past sales and the current inventory—which can help you assess the market and your position as compared to other properties Sold and Actively listed, ultimately giving you a higher net.

Online buying prospects move quickly past a property with limited or poor photos and since buyers complete 60-70% of their research on line before contacting a Realtor, how your property is presented is critical.

Broker Open House
Not all Realtors take the time to host a Realtor open house but since most people still ultimately purchase through a Realtor, it is important to promote your property to other Realtors as well as the public.
