THE MOVE & GROW METHOD
STEP ONE : GIVE ME A CALL
Alright, let's kick this off with a good old-fashioned chat. Give me a ring and we'll start forming that relationship that's so crucial in this journey. It's about more than just real estate; it's about understanding your story, your roots, and your aspirations. We'll bond, share some laughs, and lay the groundwork for a seamless partnership.
Now let's dive into the nitty-gritty. Where are you currently planted and where are your sights set? Why is a move on the horizon for you? Let's have a heart-to-heart about your current condo/home; I'll share my knowledge about the developer and the surrounding area.
Once we've established a connection, let's arrange a visit to your current digs. This isn't just about business; it's about determining if we're a good fit for each other. I'll ask you to give me a tour as if you're convincing me to buy your home. Show me the fruits of your labor, your unfinished projects, your wish list for your new home. In this tour, I'll mostly stay hushed and let you lead. Tell me about the highlights, the memories, the things that make this space special. After the tour, we'll settle in your favorite spot and just chat.
I believe there's no rush to sign a listing agreement right off the bat. We'll finalize that a couple of days before the real action begins. There’s no pressure. This journey is a big one, and I'm here to make it as smooth and enjoyable as possible for you.
STEP TWO : WHAT WE SAY TODAY, IS TODAY
Before I even step foot in your home for our first meeting, I've done my homework. I like to make sure I’m well-versed with the market, the details about your condo/home, its development history, maintenance records, and any potential issues. Having this knowledge upfront is crucial to setting a realistic price.
One of my key tasks is to dissect the comparable sales in your area. I'll explain what elements attract buyers and boost prices. By the time we're through, you'll have a solid grasp of what your property could realistically fetch on the market. Think of it like peeling an onion - we're going layer by layer, providing a comprehensive education about the market.
This way, when we broach the subject of price, you'll have a clear understanding, helping to keep emotions in check. I know your home has been the stage for countless memories and milestones, which can stir strong emotional attachments. But if we let emotions run the show, it might hinder us from maximizing your return.
To make this process more tangible, I'll show you visual comparisons and effective strategies in the current market. Seeing these examples will help you truly appreciate your property's worth.
Keep in mind… what we say today, is today. In other words, the price and strategy we discuss today is relevant to today's market. If we list your property three weeks from now, market conditions might have changed. It's essential to manage expectations. Now, here's a question for you - what do you think your home is worth? And, how does that line up with our discussion? In this step, we bridge any gaps and make sure we're on the same page.
STEP THREE : SELLING WITH TREV’S HANDS ON APPROACH
The truth is, I'm investing in you before you even invest in me.
First up, I'll introduce you to Gabby, my phenomenal professional stager. She's a total sweetheart, and I promise you'll love her. We always plan staging around 2-3 weeks ahead of the listing date. Yes, it does mean you'll need to declutter, but trust me, it's worth it. Gabby's advice is golden. Consider this your opportunity for sweat equity - the easiest way to increase your property's value. Yes, schlepping your stuff up and down the elevator or into the garage might be a drag, but the payoff is a bright, airy, fresh and neutral space that appeals to the masses.
I always try to be there for the staging consultation, just to make sure everything goes smoothly. You'll have a couple of weeks to declutter, depersonalize and touch up as necessary. Next on the list is the floor plan team. Don't worry if you're still in the midst of decluttering; they'll laser measure each room for accurate dimensions. This gives potential buyers a real sense of space and helps them envision their own furniture in the space.
After all your hard work, it's time for you to relax and let me and my team takeover. The timeline: ideally, we list your property on a Wednesday or Thursday. Monday we'll bring in professional cleaners. By Tuesday, Gabby and her crew will have your place looking like a show home. Then comes the photographer and videographer. No cut corners here, just high-quality images and footage to showcase your home in its best light. Because I know these services truly work in properly presenting your home, they are complimentary.
You might consider a weekend getaway during this process, especially if you work from home. As your agent, I'm a member of multiple real estate boards, which means your home will have maximum exposure. I'm also part of Who's Who in Luxury Real Estate, potentially opening up your listing to high-end offshore investors. We also utilize HoodQ reports, giving potential buyers in-depth knowledge about your neighbourhood and home. And let's not forget the glossy feature magazine, all about your house.
So, you see, it's all about investing in you and making sure your home selling experience is as smooth and successful as possible. At the end of the day, I want you to get the biggest return on your investment.
STEP FOUR : IF I KNOW, YOU’LL KNOW
Whether you're buying or selling, expect regular updates throughout the entire process. If there’s new information about a property or a showing, you'll be the first to know. Even if I'm not sure it's relevant, I'll still share it. My goal is to ensure you're never left in the dark about anything because knowledge is power.
After the sale, support doesn't stop. I’m happy to help guide you through the moving process. Helping you keep your timeline straight ensures you don't forget anything important during the move.
And once you have those keys? Don't think you're getting rid of me just yet! I'm still here for you. I have a wealth of referrals and recommendations for whatever you need. Need a closet organizer? I've got a guy. Painter? I can recommend the best. Cleaner? Just say the word.
By the end of this journey, I hope we're more than just agent and client. I hope we're friends. So stay in touch, and remember, I'm always here to help.
