Challenging Economic Times
Real estate today is a new game with new rules that can change daily. And in these challenging economic times, home sellers often need help outside our area of expertise. If this is true for you, we have a large database of professionals and can refer you to attorneys, CPAs and contractors. Identifying your selling needs early on is critical to avoiding a horrific short sale situation that ends up in foreclosure.
Marketing Your Home To The Most Home Buyers
Today, nearly all home buyers (93%) start their home search on the Internet. Because of this, the Ed Hunnicutt Team at Carolina One has gone to considerable effort and expense to provide you with the vast Internet exposure necessary to market your home to the most buyers throughout the state, nation and world.
When you list your home with the Ed Hunnicutt Team at Carolina One, it’s automatically listed not only in the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) but also in a syndication of the Internet’s most important real estate search sites such as Realtor.com, Zillow.com and Trulia.com. And we create a professional-quality video of your home that goes into online syndication as well as appears on YouTube.com
When you list with us, we also spend additional marketing dollars for enhanced feature listings on Realtor.com — the Internet’s #1 real estate search site — to ensure your home and its many extra photographs stand out from all the rest. Plus, your home is given feature status here on this very Web site, EdHunnicutt.com, which has been professionally designed, written and optimized to attract both home buyers and search engines and get results.
Pricing Your Home To Attract Buyers
In today’s challenging market, all the marketing in the world won’t help a home that’s overpriced. And here’s why:
With so many homes to choose from that are priced right (in keeping with the market), home buyers won’t bother to look at one that’s overpriced. And agents won’t waste their clients’ time by showing them a home that’s overpriced.
Ed Hunnicutt has the market knowledge and experience to guide you in pricing your home so that it attracts enough buyers to get an offer. It’s a simple fact: the more buyers who tour your home, the more likely you are to receive an offer — even multiple offers. Ed is a skilled negotiator, and once an offer is on the table, he can negotiate it with your best interest at heart.
Staging Your Home To Attract Offers
Also, in today’s challenging market, all the marketing in the world won’t help a home that’s less than “market ready.” Here’s why:
With so many homes to choose from, a buyer’s first impression upon seeing and then entering your home must be emotionally pleasing enough to draw her into the house. Otherwise, she will leave and move on to the next one.
This is where staging comes in. Staging is necessary so that a buyer can visualize her own furniture and possessions in your home. Unless a buyer can visualize living there, she cannot “buy” the home emotionally. And your home must first be “bought” emotionally for a buyer to make an offer.
Staging is Cathy Hunnicutt’s area of expertise. She advises you on such things as removing clutter and family photographs to depersonalize the space, taking down the draperies to let in the light and lessening the amount of or rearranging furniture to make rooms feel more spacious. Armed with Cathy’s to-do list, getting your home market ready is a cinch. And should you need help, she can refer you to painters, landscapers, plumbers and other vendors who are known to be reliable and fairly priced.
