Welcome to Pilchard Properties. When it comes to selling your home, we know you have a lot of choices, and we appreciate your business.
Pilchard Properties provides real estate consultation and sales, with a focus on client satisfaction. We pride ourselves on putting our client’s needs above all else, and to provide our clients with exceptional real estate services throughout the Snohomish County, Skagit County and Island County areas.
Pilchard Properties is committed to providing services that go above and beyond the “usual” real estate agent. We have a concierge service that will help you address any deferred maintenance, repairs and/or upgrades to your home prior to listing, which will help you sell quickly, for top dollar. If you are ready to work with a real estate agent with expert knowledge and experience in our local markets, you’ve come to the right place.
The first time we meet, we will discuss what your selling objectives are. This is a good time to ask questions, and I will give you an idea of what to expect during the selling process. We will discuss preliminary ideas for pricing and house preparations. I will provide you with a complete Comparative Marketing Analysis (CMA) for your property.
Once you decide you are ready, we will review and sign a standard Listing Agreement. We will also complete all of the mandatory disclosure forms. I will arrange for any necessary inspections.
This is where we are different from the average real estate service. Before putting your home on the market, we want to ensure it is most attractive to potential buyers. However, some homeowners don’t have the resources to pay for “sprucing” up front. At Pilchard Properties, we offer a “concierge” service, which will handle scheduling and completing the projects for you. Once we’ve finished preparing your home, it will stand out from the crowd. This insures a quick sale and maximum profit! Knowing how to showcase and accentuate the best features of your home is at the core of what I do. I will provide you with a detailed Home Preparation Consultation and a Selling Tips Sheet. As we walk through your property, we will discuss minor repairs, curb appeal tips, staging options, and making your property feel welcoming to potential buyers.
Pricing your home competitively, at the start, will create more activity among brokers and buyers and lead to a more successful sale.
Establishing the value and list price for your property involves researching and comparing similar properties and weighing factors including location, condition, amenities, and market conditions. We will arrive at a competitive price aimed at generating strong buyer activity.
Understanding where buyers come from allows me to market your property competitively. Creating excitement in the marketplace through consistent and aggressive marketing efforts and integrating online and offline efforts is key to a successful sale. My maximum exposure marketing plan includes: Comprehensive Internet marketing through our site, Realtor.com, Zillow.com, Trulia.com, Yahoo.com and dozens of others.
Also, public open houses & brokers tours, yard signage, and property feature sheet; social media ads; sales agent network; and customized property marketing. I will remain in constant communication with you and give you progress reports on showings and all activity.
The complexities of processing transactional documents will be made very easy for you through my continuous guidance and communication. I will review all offers and terms of each offer with you and negotiate on your behalf so that you obtain the highest possible price for your home while limiting your exposure and protecting your bests interests.
Once your home is in escrow, I will communicate regularly with all of the other professionals involved in your transaction, i.e., buyer’s agent, escrow team, lenders, appraisers, etc. and I will keep you updated throughout. Communication between us is imperative and I can assure you that you will be informed every step of the way.
Congratulations, you have now sold your home! I will provide you with helpful moving hints and also be there to answer any questions. I am always available to help you should a question arise after the close of escrow and I want to ensure that you are 100% satisfied.
