How do we get you out of one house and in to another? (Contingency) Very carefully. It is doable but many agents do not like to get involved with it. We have a procedure blueprint that we apply and we have done it before many times. Certain procedural steps are set up in your agreement with your buyer and your seller on each end. We enjoy the challenge of making this happen for our clients. Our goal is for you to have a seamless move.
On this blog entry, we are sharing a menu of exactly what we do, in general. Most firms do not 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: "We use Marketing Plus for Sellers." One technique 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.
