Why use a consultant?
Advice - The real estate market is continually fluctuating. Your DSRE agent can give you up to the minute information on the current market conditions including pricing, presentation and the terms needed to make your home competitive in the market and to obtain the best price, quickly, and with the minimum of hassle.
Marketing Coordination – Your DSRE consultant can recommend repairs or cosmetic work or other staging ideas that will enhance the saleability of your home. We will market the home through our own network of agents in the Multiple Listing Service but will also use other tools including the internet, print media, mass mailings, personal contacts and by many other means. All of this is intended to give your property the maximum market exposure it deserves.
Objective Evaluation – When you receive an offer on your property, your DSRE consultant will help you objectively evaluate the offer to determine all the ramifications of the proposal including price, required repairs or inspections, timing, buyer qualification, and more. We can assist a legally binding, win-win agreement which will protect your interests and make sure that the purchase will go through to closing.
Legwork – During the listing period, your DSRE consultant will perform all the legwork needed to make the home available through previews, showings, and open houses. They will be present after the offer is accepted for questions or inspections and ensure safe and proper access to your home.
Closing – Between the initial sales agreement and the closing, many questions may arise.
These include unexpected repairs, disclosure issues, title problems and financing difficulties.
The paperwork alone is overwhelming for most sellers. Your DSRE consultant will advise you during this process and help resolve these issues and move the transaction to closing.
Follow-up – Your DSRE consultant will continue to follow-up with you after the closing to ensure that all your questions have been answered and to assist you with any needs in regards to your move to a new location.
