Benefits for Sellers and Buyers with Greg Nichols of MFN Realty! 107924606

 

Greg and his wife, Deborah Nichols


On this blog entry, we are sharing a menu of exactly what we do. No other firms that we have found have this list of features. That is why, when you hire us, we perform well and get the job done. Please explore the info we have for sellers and buyers.  

Sellers:  Greg here. I got my early training in real estate by listing homes from the expired list routinely, and selling homes that other agents could not sell.  I then took the secret sauce of techniques and procedures and today those are what I follow and we still have the ability to do things that are difficult to do and it creates a very "over the top" service.  More offers mean higher and better offers. 

Buyers:  Through our vast experience, we have some procedures to help. First of all, we call you back quickly. Then, we set you up to get select houses sent to your email to view photos of them the very first day they hit the market and we are ready to help you get into them to see them very fast. Then, we write your offer in such a way to make it quite competitive and we work very well with the seller's agent to make sure your offer gets a fair viewing by the seller.  Then, on finding you a good deal on a nice home, we use expertise on home searches and we can find you what you want. 

Sellers:  One technique (Marketing Plus for Sellers) we use is that we broadened our territory where we look for buyers for your home, and it is not just the Sacramento Valley.  We have ways to notify many of the all cash buyers early in the San Francisco Bay area, about your home and that it is listed with us.  This is an actual exposure we give to our own sellers without any extra charge to our sellers. Most agents rely on the MLS service to sell your home. WE do that too, but so, so much more!

Buyers:  We have a home scoring service. No one else does this service because we created/invented it.  After you purchase a home, in the first 24-48 hours and during your due diligence and contingency period, we run a score on the home showing you that score with a breakdown of why it is what it is. Most houses pass OK, so it does not kill deals, but it does give a buyer more confidence. Our score shows things not covered in the whole house inspection, the pest inspection, and the roof inspection. In fact, since those are a given in most escrows, we focus on other more abstract, but no less important things about the home. We charge you nothing for this score process but you can only get it through us. We do not score our own listings, it is a service for buyers only.

Sellers:  One service that we offer to sellers is from an affiliated firm who does fix up,  light remodels, painting, curb side refreshing, patio, kitchen and bathroom makeovers, and they do this before you list, with no charge up front, no credit checks, and no lending fees. They give you a bid, and if you like it, then you list your home with us, and you sell the home and pay for the work at closing from your equity, and your escrow firm pays them for you. This is a great service, and can help you even get more money when you sell. No job is too small. 

Sellers:   One of our systems we use makes us very effective with luxury homes and the extra oomph and exposure it takes to get the upper end homes sold and the sellers down the road with a check in their hand. 

Buyers:  We have special circumstance homes where you can get a good deal from a seller who must sell. The homes are fairly nice. Some are vacant, some are "as is," some are probate sales, and some are Trustee sales.  

Sellers and Buyers:  We have references and a few of them are at this link. < To speak with me, give me a call and we can discuss what's on your mind, answer any questions you have, and if it seems appropriate to both of us, we can set a time for me to come by and see your home.

Fix Up Your Home Before You List and Pay When It Sells! 107924606

 


Do you need repairs or updates before you list your home? 

Home Sellers:  73% of sellers make at least one home improvement before selling. Now, you can spruce up your home using professionals and pay when your home sells. Do some fix up before you list the home, then pay from your proceeds. This has proven to help your bottom line when selling. Whether painting, or re-doing the floors, or working on the curb appeal, Greg Nichols at eXp Realty has a contact service that can get you ready to sell and you can defer the payment using no credit check, no up front OR hidden fees, just pay from your home equity later at closing. 

If you plan to sell, call us today for a consultation on what you need done.  I can look at it for you and advise you on a plan to move forward. No job is too small, so if you don't need much, this program can help you anyway.

Services By Greg Nichols of MFN Realty, 107924606


Unique Services * Highly Experienced Agent * No Hype - We Just Get Down to Business * Use a Strategic Firm That Can Access More Homebuyers Than Most Firms at No Extra Cost * Negotiation Expert * Harnessing the Power of the Internet


Hello, Greg Nichols here. I am the broker of MFN Realty and a Christian Realtor. I have a very unique procedure and I do things differently than most agents. It all began early in my career when I began reaching out to those with expired listings, which other agents and firms had not been able to sell. I began to specialize, and I was known for selling homes that other agents could not sell. I brought a commonsense perception to the table and over many years, I developed a system and methods to give these sellers the service they really needed. One of the biggest problems when I arrived on the scene to sell these homes were the errors and mistakes that their former agents had made. 

But that was just one part of it. I realized that I needed to become a marketing expert and I needed to learn and do things that caused buyers to not only look at my listings, but to act on them too. That brings us to this present time today when our strategies are available to any seller who entrusts their home to us. To discuss this further with me, give me a call at 916-580-7235.  (If I can’t answer, please leave me a message and I will call you back.)

An Innovative Scoring System That We Offer Our Buyers at No Cost! 107924606


Before You Ever Buy Another Home, Read

"My Home Score" Below!

 from Greg Nichols, MFN Realty, DRE #00632894
916-580-7235


 My Home Score
from Greg Nichols 

As a real estate broker, 26 years ago in 1997, I created or invented a system and process to score homes based on various factors.  This scoring method is good for any buyer, including new home buyers, rental investors, property flippers, subdivision planners, etc. 

This scoring system is optional; you can decline it and we will represent you as our buyer with the exceptionally good service you expect. But read on.

(Note:  We never score our own listings, our seller's houses. We are agents acting in the law of Agency, and this scoring system is for buyer's only, for their protection, where we only represent the buyer. When we sell a seller's home and they become a buyer, then we can score their next home at their option.)

This is something only our firm has; no other firm has it! We believe you should have all of the inspections that are normally done when you buy a home.  They include:  1) appraisal,  2) termite inspection,  3) whole house inspection,  4) roof inspection, and those are just the main ones. Now buyers can go a step further at NO COST! Through MFN Realty, we have one more inspection that measures factors in a home that are not ever measured.  

Our Proprietary System:

We have several categories that a home must reach a minimum score on. Those scores are then, with our professional and unique system, rendered into a final score with a certain minimum score total to pass. In other words, this process is indicating to you that the home you have chosen is a good or acceptable purchase. All of this is done, not before you make the offer, but rather, before you are obligated to do the final contingency removal and are bound by contract. This scoring will help you know things such as:

  • Will my home resell reasonably well?
  • Can I expect a market value when I resell? 
  • Will my home have some sort of functional obsolescence? 
  • Will I be buying a white elephant that has no obvious outward appearance of an issue to a layman's eyes?
  • Is the price or condition of the home I am accepting good enough to create a passing score?  (This can help a buyer who is caught in a bid war and concerned about the price being paid or what negative impact an "as is" sale will have on the score.)

This score system is not a deal killer, as the score test is fairly easy to pass, but it IS a buyer protector.  Why? The average real estate transaction has no real uniform way for agents to warn you of issues not covered by the current due diligence inspections. This is not only because it does not exist except for our service, but also because no matter how savvy and honest your agent is, you will never know if they are telling you everything that they can see from their vast professional experience, knowing their commission is on the line if they do. This is a subtle and hidden conflict that goes back decades in our industry.  A simple napkin test could alleviate this issue, and we have it.  The premise of this scoring method is that the house does not fail for one particular issue, but rather it can only fail for several contributing issues looking at the house as a whole and this is easy to do in one complete scoring process. 

I must make it clear that this inspection and scoring system does not exist anywhere but in my firm at this time.  I created it to better serve and protect my clients. There are many years of real estate background and experience that I have that are poured into this unique scoring method.  Soon, other agents will be using this method too, but we are beta testing it now.  You can benefit from it for no charge. I believe God gave us this idea, and the way I  know this is because it is based on "serving" and "caring" and "truthfulness." The customer is put first, before anything or anyone else. 

What is our scoring system like?  It is like you having a trusted friend or family member who has real estate savvy and knowledge from decades of brokering real estate, and they stop by after your purchase during your escrow to give you their own opinion and stamp of approval on your purchase. What is the value of you having a resource like this person? It is immeasurable. Our scoring system is much like having such a person.

The process takes about 1-2 hours, and it is done during the inspection period after your offer is accepted and escrow has begun, preferably in the first 2-3 days. It is thorough but very fair.  It allows a buyer to feel confident that there are very experienced eyes, who 
know what to look for, on their next home purchase. 

Call us to get more information if you are planning to buy a home.

Your cost? O! Zero, Zip, Nada, Zilch! We simply use our resource for your benefit, at no cost, as we represent you as our buyer.

We Have Marketing Plus Services to Sell Your Home Fast! 107924606

An Impressive Luxury Estate 



Luxury Home Rear Pool View

Luxury Home Sellers Take Notice!

Marketing On Steroids!

Greg Nichols, broker with MFN Realty is a marketing expert in the real estate business and in other fields too.  Procedures and methods have been put in place in Greg's personal marketing tool box to highly expose your home to it's target market. Most firms do not do what we do.  

Read this review from a happy seller:   "After designing and building our own home 35 years ago, we found that selling our house was a daunting task! Luckily, Greg was there explaining every step of the way and reassuring us that the right buyer was just around the corner. In spite of heavy smoke covering our beautiful property from the California fires and a pandemic lockdown, the perfect family for our unique home emerged. Greg and Debbie had wisely targeted San Francisco in their marketing strategy. We highly recommend Greg and Debbie Nichols to be your choice for a reliable real estate agent and broker. Miracles do happen in the hands of the right people!"    GB

Our system uses several strategies to maximize qualified and hungry buyers for Sacramento Valley and Placer County homes. Often, the buyers are all cash buyers. If your home is medium priced at $500,000 to $750,000, there are buyers out there for your home. 

Luxury owners take notice!  

Just One Strategy We Have is Explained Here!

The higher the price of home, the more our system can deliver. But lower priced homes sell fast too for obvious reasons. We are headquartered in Roseville, and we specialize in Roseville, but we also specialize in luxury homes in surrounding areas.  One method is a system where we have marketing set up for our own listings in the Greater Sacramento Area, the San Francisco Bay Area and in the Greater Los Angeles Area where many high end and all cash buyers are plentiful. These 3 areas have just under 29 million people between them. There is a migration factor from both of those outside areas to our Sacramento Valley because of our more affordable homes.  We have spent 4 years setting up a network to reach out to all 3 areas digitally to expose our client's normal priced homes (at no cost to our sellers) and our client's luxury homes to the cash wealthy buyers in these 3 areas. Many buyers come from those locations with all cash and may have sold a home there that is a 3 or 4 bedroom, 2 bath home, with 1700 square feet in the $1 million to $1.5 million range. Then they see our Sacramento or Placer or El Dorado County client's homes which are 2 or 3 or 4 times the size for 1.5 or 2 million dollars. If your home is worth only $600,000 or $700,000, it still looks like a palatial mansion compared to what they sold. Our system showcases your home to these areas repeatedly along with marketing to the buyer market in this area too until you are sold. This extra value costs you nothing extra. Call Greg Nichols today to get more details and to get an estimate of value on your home.

Consider Greg at MFN Realty Before Listing Your Home for Sale! 107924606

We Aggressively Market Your Home!

Why Choose a Firm that 

Does Less Than We Do?

You Will Thank Us!

You Can Walk Away With Your Check 

in Hand in 42 Days!

Selling Your Home? We offer more services that really count than most firms do!  Many other agents simply put a sign on your home, and a key-box, and then they input the listing information into the local MLS service for the other agents in town to show.  That is often where they stop as far as marketing goes. We do all that too, but that is where Greg Nichols starts the marketing process. We then aggressively bring out our systems and strategies to make things happen. Where some other firms take a passive role, we are just beginning to bring out the heavy artillery of marketing. 

We are known for 3 words:  Experience, Experience, Experience.  Our skilled marketing puts you in the driver’s seat as the seller.  It can be discouraging for a seller to see little interest in their home or have a buyer that did not pan out, but nothing solves the issue like skillful marketing of your home to create a groundswell of interest in it and stimulate offers coming your way.  That is where we come in.  Greg Nichols, Broker of MFN Realty, has spent many years in the industry selling homes that other agents could not sell, perfecting advertising, systems, and processes that create interest in homes.  Most often, the homes are sold and rather quickly.  We know who your targeted buyers are, not personally, but we know them by their demographic patterns and how to get to them and present your home to them.  Because we have much knowledge through experience, you can have more confidence on complex issues and protocols.  Do not trust your home with just any agent, call an expert today!

Our systems are digital, and we know how to reach millions of people extremely fast.  As a Sacramento Valley firm based in Roseville, we found that it was in our clients’ best interests for us to build an outreach to and network with buyers in the San Francisco Bay Area, a place with a population in the millions.  Many of them, when they sell their high-priced homes, have all cash to buy their next home.  Sales statistics show that their first stop to look for their next home is this Sacramento Valley where prices are way below their prices over there.  We have spent over 3 years building this system.  We can bring many good buyers to our Sacramento area listings, and the buyers are prequalified, parsed, filtered, and distilled, in a matter of speaking, into a very pure group of highly likely, hungry, and often cash carrying buyers.  

The result?  We show them our clients’ homes first.  What we do is proprietary and not practiced by our competitors.  This is only one of several techniques we use to market your home.  This gives our firm an edge and that edge belongs to you if we are representing you as your listing agent.  We also have 5 strategies that we use that may lead to bid wars and higher offers for you!  

Before you list with another firm, give us a call.  You will see why we are different, and how our firm can get you faster, more, and higher offers!
