Q: What is the process if I want to work with you?
A: The first step is to click here to request a complimentary home evaluation. At that meeting, we will give you a sense of what we believe your home will sell for in the current market and answer any questions you may have.
If you decide to proceed from there, you will be asked to sign a standard Listing Agreement - and we get to work preparing your home for sale!
Q: What is your professional fee?
A: We provide a premium level of service at a standard professional fee of 5% - this fee is paid by the seller from the proceeds of the sale and split evenly between the buyer's brokerage and the seller's brokerage. We are very proud to provide a premium level of service for this standard percentage, which includes thousand of dollars' worth of extras to ensure your home shows it's best, reaches as many buyers as possible and fetches top dollar.
Q: What is 'standard staging'?
A: Standard staging - which comes at no extra cost for all our listings - includes:
- A full consultation
- Decor for living room, dining room, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bathrooms and entry
- Furniture if needed for living room, dining room and master bedroom
Q: How long will it take to prepare my home for sale?
A: That depends on how much decluttering, prep and repair work is required before listing. We will be able to give you a sense of this at your consultation. Generally it's a matter of weeks.
Q: How long should I expect my home to be on the market?
A: In a sellers' market (where demand is greater than supply), your home could be on the market for a week (or less) and has the potential to fetch multiple offers. In a buyer's - or balanced - market your home could be on the market for weeks or even months.
We will discuss the possibilities for your property when we meet for your complimentary home evaluation.
Q: I need to buy and sell - what should I do first?
A: This depends on a couple of factors including the state of the market and whether you can afford to carry two homes if the current home isn't sold before the new one closes. Again we'll discuss your options - and the pros and cons - when we meet.
