Why you should sell your Seattle home with Gerhard.
You would be right in trusting to sell your Seattle home with Gerhard Ade because of his 25-year career in design and marketing. But perhaps more important is his track record of selling homes as quickly as feasible at the highest possible price. The main reason for his success lies in the system he’s created to list and sell homes.
Price Your Home to Sell.
“What’s my home worth?” This is the first question a home seller asks. A comparable Market Analysis provides the basis for establishing a price range. However, the final answer to the actual list price depends on the successful execution of the other two Ps, Preparation, and Presentation. Pricing is linked to timing. Local competition may change the listing price at the last moment. Equally important is a list price that attracts buyers looking for a home at the low and high end of a specific price range. The day of the listing the answer as to pricing will be self-evident.
Prepare Your Home to Sell.
How well do you know your home? Not sure? When you prepare your home to sell you will remember much you’ve forgotten and learned some things you never knew. Preparation involves research, making to-do-lists, accounting for paperwork, and deciding what’s worth repairing and improving. The successful selling of a home is always the result of teamwork between the seller and the real estate agent. Nowhere is teamwork more necessary than in the getting the home ready for sale.
Present Your Home to Sell.
This is when you reap the benefits of your good work. We know what it takes to sell your Seattle home in the prevailing market conditions, and we’ve kept tabs on our competition. You’ve made repairs and improvements. Your home looks good inside and out. Now we get to show off the place. When you present your home to sell, a good listing agent makes all the difference.
Homes are sold through two channels – the agent-broker channel and the public channel. The first is known and narrow; that’s the MLS. The second is vast and varied; that’s the Internet. In practice, everything starts with the listing on the MLS. It triggers the export of the data and description to MLS member Web sites and countless real estate portals. The successful home sale at the highest possible price in the fastest time depends on exposing your home in both channels to the maximum potential.
That’s how you sell your Seattle home with Gerhard.
What a client said
Thanks for the help with our homes! In 2009 you found us a brand new house to rent when we moved to Seattle, in 2011 you found us a beautiful craftsman house to buy, and in 2015 you helped us sell that beautiful house for 25% more than we bought it for.
Being first time home buyers, we learned a lot through that process and that helped us buy our next home in California. The realtor that was helping the buyers of our last house even commented to us what a joy it was to work with you. He explained many realtors are “flaky” and it can be like pulling teeth to get everything done. He told me how refreshing it was to work with you, that you were really on top of all of the magic (voodoo?). I guess that must have been true, because there were zero delays or issues and in my limited experience of 1 purchase and 1 home sale, you have given the illusion it’s simple and painless, which I guess as a customer, is all I care about.
We really appreciate all of the advice you gave, the help with staging parts of the house, getting the photos done, and just making sure the house looked to its potential for prospective buyers.
