Selling your property the RE/MAX way
There are so many ways in which people manage to sell their properties, but not all of them are cost effective, time effective, efficient or pleasant. Selling a property, especially a family home, is considered to be one of the most stressful episodes in a person’s life, not only because it equates with a major change, but because it is such an upheaval in the normal day-to-day life of a person not to mention the sentimental value that a goes a long with leaving the memories you may leave behind.
Therefore, finding the right estate agent to help you sell your property can make all the difference to the entire procedure. When you invite a RE/MAX associate to view your property with the intention of listing it for sale within the extremely vast RE/MAX portfolio, you are taking the first step towards a smoother transitional experience, from day one.
Evaluating The Property
RE/MAX sales associates are fully trained in identifying key selling factors in every property they view, no matter how small, large, dilapidated or refined. By talking to you and asking specifically targeted questions whilst viewing the property alongside you, the associate will be able to qualify your needs and guide you with a plan of action on how to price your property and market it so as to make it more visible to potential buyers. A RE/MAX associate will take location, price and other properties that have been sold as well as listed within the same area in consideration. Special unique characteristics that make your home stand out from the rest will be noted and evaluated.
One must take into consideration that a real estate agent must look at your property from a professional aspect whilst at this stage a home owner is often putting a price on the emotional factors that go with leaving behind a lifetime of memories.
A RE/MAX associate specialises in geographical areas and types of property so that they may focus on understanding the knowledge of a specific market and provide informed guidance. It is understandable to say, “Who does this real estate agent think he is?”, “Who is he/she to put a price on my property?”, But in reality, if the estate agent merely lists your property without asking pertinent questions and does not provide his professional opinion, that should be your cue to ask him/her to leave.
Whilst the property is being listed, the associate will discuss strategy and tips with you so to highlight the most unique aspects of the property. Every property has its very own and unique identifying strong points, but often home owners overlook simple ways they could easily adopt to optimise the value of their property. A RE/MAX associate will help you elevate the property’s standard by providing tips on how to improve its general appearance and how to provide a positive first impression to would-be buyers.

Staging & 3D imaging
Minor cosmetic changes can help stage a property in a big way and the insight of an expert RE/MAX associate can quickly guide you, the seller, in the right direction. Owners whose property can be significantly improved in such a way as to impact strongly on the final market value, will be encouraged to make subtle changes so as to show off the property at its very best. Simple basic things such as spring cleaning, changing curtains, moving furniture around and de-cluttering, are the first steps which are generally recommended. Depending on your agreement,the associate will organise a staging procedure, which is included in the Exclusive Listing programme and has proven to be extremely effective. When a property is professionally staged, it can be lifted up a notch or two and attracts more buyers to your door. Another proven method for selling a property is 3D imaging. This procedure is undertaken when a property is not finished or still on plan. RE/MAX will take on the property and bring it to life through digital images.
Every seller has many questions to ask – Is the price right? How far should I negotiate? What tax implications should I consider? How soon can a contract be signed? A RE/MAX associate will be able to answer all these questions and more. He or she will assist you by making sure to research not only the best way to market the property, but also find potential buyers, fit viewing appointments around your schedule, accompany viewers around the property, advise you on pertinent legal arrangements, guide negotiations, oversee transactions and contractual details, as well as provide practical guidelines linked to the eventual moving of your personal belongings.
