There are 5 Reasons Why Home Sellers are Mislead Into Losing Thousands of Dollars and Wasting Months of Time.
1. Inaccurate Market Statistics
Inaccurate market statistics, like zestimates on popular sites like zillow.com are inaccurate and confusing. To protect consumers, we publish and distribute the Truth in consumer protection articles, graphics, podcasts, and videos to 1000s of websites. The truth is that general market statistics probably do NOT apply to your home and are often distorted deliberately by these websites to confuse you and get you to contact real estate agents advertising on their website.
2. Inaccurate Pricing
The way most agents are trained to create a price analysis is so wildly inaccurate that most agents attempts at pricing are really using the “Guess and Get Lucky ” strategy i.e. “I guess it will sell at about this price…No? You don’t like that number? Well, we can Go with whatever you think it’s worth….and hope we GET lucky….”
To protect you, our in depth RVM or Real Value Model valuation process includes 4 levels of pricing research, that account for 108 unique variables that we have identified that effect what your home is really worth. Homes are not like loaves of bread, each one is unique, and accounting for your homes unique features helps us more effectively price your home accurately. We can even show you how many buyers are in the market and exactly how likely your home is to sell in any given month based on our proprietary algorithm.
3. Bad Real Estate Internet “Marketing”
Most real estate marketing, is actually just basic advertising and it HURTS Your Final Sale Price. Mostly it consists of a few things like a yard sign, a dozen bad photos ( you know what we mean) paper flyers, an open house and putting the home in the MLS. Even worse, one of the first things they do is to “syndicate” your listing to 15 sites like Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com — which helps these websites sell ads to agents but not sell your home. The average dollar amount spent on “marketing” a home is only $325.
We control hundreds of websites and online accounts where we feature your home in gorgeous HD video and photo. Our no Ads, no spam, No hassles policies help buyers focus on your home and keep them away from agents who would steer them away from your home and towards their own listings.
Our “Up Sell Your Home” listing program (consumer value at over$10,000) consists of 17 modules, over 200 different steps and dozens of innovative marketing strategies we use to promote homes more effectively than any other real estate company in the USA. This program cost us over $20,000 to develop, it’s hundreds of pages and barely fits in a 3 ring binder. Anyone trying to do it without our proprietary software and skilled staff; it would cost them…well, they couldn’t.
No one else does more.
4. Poor Communication
One of the top seller complaints is that after the agent “gets the listing” they are never heard from again except to ask for price reductions.
We guarantee to speak with you every week and we provide 4 reports monthly with real time notification of everything we do.
