At Inhabit Vancouver, we use a team approach and innovative marketing strategies to sell your home as efficiently as possible with as little inconvenience to you as possible. We ensure your property's best features and benefits are showcased to all prospective buyers through professional photography and floorplans, online marketing, virtual property tours, creative print advertising, as well as direct and email marketing.
With all the marketing materials in place, we host strategically planned 'open houses' and 'sneak peeks' to get people excited about viewing your home. We will personally attend every showing as we believe this is one of the most important aspects of selling your home. Having a knowledgeable agent to answer questions and point out the best features can make a tremendous difference in a sale and the sale price of your home.
Inhabit Vancouver is here to guide you through every step of the home selling process. From our knowledge of the Vancouver real estate market and vast experience dealing with property sales, below are some highlights from our custom home marketing plan for your property.
The Internet has become an integral tool in the homebuyer arsenal with 84 percent of all buyers identifying the Internet as a source in their home search.
Our online marketing system allows us to make information accessible 24-hours a day, and to respond immediately and directly to each and every prospective buyer. From this website, prospective buyers can access photos, virtual tours, floorplans and vital information about your home immediately. Buyers will also be able to find your property through any or all of these industry standard listing services: Mls.ca, Realtor.ca, Realtylink.org, Sutton.com, Realestatebook.com, Twitter, Facebook and Craigslist.ca.
We email your property listing on a professionally designed email template with photos and virtual tours to every prospective buyer and every local working realtor in our database. Our lists of buyers await our new listings and our colleagues thank us for sharing photos, virtual tours and professionally measured floorplans for their buyers. Our database of local working realtors is currently over 2,000 Vancouver Realtors, and includes the city's top producing agents.
We run ads in print publications such as the Real Estate Book, the Real Estate Weekly, Realtylink in print (MLS), NorthShore News, the Westender, The Georgia Straight, and other print publications we deem valuable or important to assisting in the sale of your property.
We supply professionally designed feature sheets and flyers to all home buyers at open houses, and we include a professionally installed for sale sign on your lot. We want to ensure you have maximum 'curb appeal' for potential buyers.
Today's buyers are comparison shoppers and are very price sensitive. They will shy away from properties that are listed too high. They too will have access to the same market data that we will provide you with. Listing above market value will more than likely sell your neighbour's property and not yours, or at the very least prevent Buyers from even visiting your listing. We will tell you "what you need to know" instead of what you may "want to hear". In the end, it is still your choice for pricing. Keep in mind that there are always other homes for sale competing with yours.
We are here to help you price your home competitively to attract qualified buyers. We will show you what your property is worth through a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) and a Subject Property Analysis report.
Preparing yourself and your property is a large part of the process. You need to know the facts about what is involved and how much each step will cost so there are no surprises. Aesthetically speaking if your property isn't prepared with the buyer in mind it's possible that they might not see the full value. In the industry we call this "staging" and if done properly your home should achieve about 5% more than it typically would have. A staged home also sells in half the time.
Find out our 10 easy steps to the home staging process that will help to impress your buyers and earn the true value of your place.
With your approval, we conduct strategically planned "open houses" for the general public as well as "sneak peeks" to get the public excited about viewing your home before the weekend opens. We create urgency by hosting two initial public open houses and having all of the property's documentation ready for a buyer to write an offer. Further showings are coordinated with plenty of notice and approval by you. We will personally be there at every showing as we believe this is one of the most important aspects of selling your home. Just having a knowledgeable agent there to answer questions and point out the best features of the home can and does make a tremendous difference in a sale and the sale price of your home.
After all our initial open houses and showings, we provide you with feedback and track and report all prospective buyer activity to you regularly. If you do not wish for us to host open houses we can discuss alternative selling strategies with you.
