Selling your Home with the Zwick Chimes Team
To ensure that your property receives maximum exposure and is able to sell for top dollar, you need a strong marketing plan and experienced representation. As active members of the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver’s Medallion Club for top industry performers, and the RE/MAX Hall of Fame for lifetime achievement, we are firmly established in the Vancouver Market. With more than 25 years of collective experience and 400 sales, you are in good hands.
Once you have hired us to sell your home, all you need to do is keep your home prepared for showings. We do the rest. All of it. And we will never come to you with additional costs. All marketing expenses are included.
Plan & Prepare
1. Market Analysis
Prepare a detailed market analysis to outline market trends and comparable sales in your neighbourhood. We’ll use this to determine our optimized pricing strategy. If you’re just starting to think about selling your home, start with our free Home Evaluation.
2. Home Staging
Conduct a home staging consultation to accentuate your home’s potential and maximize its appeal to potential buyers – small changes can make a big differences. We also have an inventory of decor items that we can offer free of charge to help with the finishing touches.
3. Photography and Floor Plans
Utilize professional photographs, detailed floor plans and video tours to ensure that your home looks its very best online. For large lots we also make use of a drone to capture the lay of the land. With Buyers starting their search online, that is a fantastic opportunity to capture their attention and elicit interest.
Develop & Execute
1. Broad Web Presence
We have developed a broad web presence through web partnerships and by creating niche real estate websites & blogs to be wherever Buyers are looking. This web presence helps to direct both local and international Buyers to your listing, which is vital as more than 90% of new Buyers are starting their search on the internet.
2. Social Media
We will leverage our strong social media presence that includes Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and several regularly maintained blogs. Think of social media as an extended relationship network. Each relationship offers exposure to a vast network of local and international buyers.
Schedule regular open houses for the first three weeks your home is on the market; open houses will also be scheduled after any price reductions or status changes. We will also ensure every interested Buyer has an opportunity to view the home, if not at Open Houses, then during schedule showings. We’ll also display a highly prominent FOR SALE sign in front of your home to attract neighbourhood interest and take advantage of the strong RE/MAX brand.
4. Printed Marketing Collateral
We use professionally designed and printed four page glossy Marketing Brochures, Direct Mail Campaigns and an attractive Buyer’s Handbook to help lure potential Buyers by making your property stand out, and offering the Buyer the information they need in a nicely constructed, thoughtful way. The more readily available the information and forthcoming the answers, the more it puts potential buyers at ease when it comes time to write an offer.
5. Access to Qualified Buyers
We have access to lots of qualified, eager Buyers thanks to our directed marketing campaigns, and will ensure that we let them know of the unique opportunity to purchase your home, creating a sense of excitement and intrigue.
Negotiate & Sell
We will be present during any showings and the inspection to ensure that we are there to answer any questions, quell any fears and represent you, the seller.
Once we have potential Buyers in place, we will stand by our price, educate the potential Buyers on how we arrived at our valuation and encourage offers. Upon receiving offers we’ll ensure the contract has a price, dates and terms that work for you and will negotiate on your behalf until you are happy.
3. Completion of the Sale
We will ensure that you know what is required of you and when it’s required during the completion of the sale. We have fantastic Lawyers and Notaries to refer for the legal requirements. Not only will we be helping you with the purchase of your new home, but if necessary, we can ensure that this sale lines up with your purchase so you only have to move once.
