Free Current Market Analysis
As a real estate broker Roxann is always cognizant of the fact that real estate is a local matter. The economy will fluctuate throughout the nation, but for the sellers here, an experienced agent must understand the facts that will affect the sale of your home locally. Roxann and her team start the process of marketing your home from your first contact. Whether you chose to email your information or make your first call, the search is initiated to discover the latest sales, prices, competition, and trends that will impact your home sale. Once an appointment is made, Roxann will personally visit your home to meet with you and discuss the market and preparing your home for sale.
After the review is completed for the market conditions of your property, and the staging is completed (Click here to learn about the importance of staging and our staging services.), your home is ready for its grand entrance into the selling market. Your Home Team will pursue all the internet opportunities to ensure your visibility immediately! Your home will be available 24/7 through the Multiple Listing Service, realtor.com and an additional thirty-five websites Roxann will share at your listing appointment.
“As your marketing specialist, I know where the buyers are coming from: are they relocating to Scott A.F.B., when will they be arriving, how will they start their search? We need to consider those relocating to St. Louis and the Metro East area – will they consider our homes for sale throughout O’Fallon, Shiloh, Swansea, Fairview Heights, and Belleville? How will I make sure that your home is one they can consider? Locally, who are the first time buyers? Are current home owners looking to sell to upgrade or downsize? Understanding the market and knowing where the buyers will come from is important; knowing how to reach those serious buyers is critical.
Real estate is not just a sign in the yard and a lockbox. It’s personal to you, and we recognize that fact with every client we work with. I know you rely on me to stay current on market trends and resources, your competition, and all the aspects that can affect the sale of your home. When you go through all the work preparing your home for sale, do you want it to “sit” or do you want to be the one to “sell”? I want to work with you when you’re ready to sell!”
Certified Welcome Home Properties
Many of our home owners do additional work to receive their certifications as a “Welcome Home Property”. To receive this certification which is recognized as a distinction in all advertising and actual home viewings, home sellers aggressively prepare their home for sale:
- Professionally cleaned from ceiling to floors
- Painting touch ups or repainting has occurred as needed inside and outside
- Carpets are professionally cleaned or replaced
- Home is professionally staged
- Landscaping is created, refreshed, or enhanced
- Home is city/county occupancy compliant
- Personal items are packed away
- Home is ready to close within 30 days
These are just a few of the advantages of preparing your home to be a Certified Welcome Home Property. When we meet, we’ll discuss all the advantages of this program.
The influence of print advertising has evolved in recent years. At Your Home Team, we utilize the Southern Illinois Homes Magazine and the Showcase. These are full color homes magazines used in the Metro East. The Belleville News Democrat distributes the Southern Illinois Magazine on a rotation basis once a month to different locations throughout Scott A.F.B., O’Fallon, Shiloh, Swansea, Fairview Heights, and Belleville. The O’Fallon Progress distributes the Showcase on a monthly basis. Our marketing also includes the Command Post and the O’Fallon Progress.
Custom homes fliers will be created for your home to be utilized for marketing. These fliers will include not only verbal descriptions but also many pictures of your home in its best presentation.
At Your Home Team we understand that the whole family can be affected by the marketing and sale of their home. Roxann meets with the whole family to discuss their feelings and explain the process. She offers children the opportunity to participate in her Kids Program. An agreement is signed for the children to work with their parents to have their room show ready, and in return they will receive coupons from Your Home Team as a show of appreciation for their efforts. It takes teamwork to sell homes!
