Getting Your Home Sold
Our proven sales strategy
Selling a home for the highest possible price in the Bay Area requires a cohesive strategy, deliberate process and a talented team.
Amanda follows a strategic plan to get your home sold for top dollar, as quickly as possible.
First, she analyzes both market conditions and the property to determine how best to position it in the current market.
Based on our analysis, she'll develop a marketing plan and execute it with the intention of generating quality offers from qualified buyers.
Then, she negotiates fiercely on your behalf and when both parties agree on price and terms, then proceeds to the closing process.
Let’s look at each of these steps in greater detail.
Analyze and Position
For a fast, efficient and profitable sale
Market fluctuations, time of year and inventory will all have a direct impact on pricing your home. For a fast, efficient and profitable sale, Amanda will provide you with a detailed report outlining the latest market trends, a full market valuation of your home and a Comparative Market Analysis.
No matter how hot the market might be, simply placing your home on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) is not enough. She will consult with you on how to best position your home for sale and attract the right prospects to your doorstep.
Should you price your home at or below market? It depends. Pricing your home in a manner that will attract multiple buyers who will compete with each other, and not you, requires experience and a thorough understanding of the market. Amanda will advise you on the most appropriate pricing strategy.
It is a psychological advantage for prospective buyers to see themselves living in your uncluttered home. For this reason, painting, deep cleaning and depersonalizing are crucial elements to a quick sale. Amanda will manage the preparation of your home in a manner that suits your comfort level.
Key cosmetic fixes are also important. Should you refinish your cabinets, change out the sink in the guest bathroom or invest in a new front door? She will advise you on changes that yield the greatest ROI.
Staging can be crucial to obtaining the highest price and fastest sale of your home. According to a survey by the Real Estate Staging Association, homes spend 78% less time on the market after being staged. Amanda will advise you on how to stage your home or provide a professional who can do it for you.
She will have a broad repertoire of interior designers and stagers to meet just about any budget.

Staging and Professional Photography
Prepare and present your property
It has been studied and shown that both the length of time on the market and sales price are positively impacted by a beautifully staged and photographed home.
These are powerful tools not to be overlooked or underestimated. Selling a home is part science, part art. Beyond analytics and market conditions, there is the human element to consider. Every buyer is trying to imagine themselves living in the home they are viewing.
Through the magic of staging and photography, you can ignite the flame of desire in a potential client to want to own and live in the space you are selling, and now call home.

postcards and advertising

and create the best impression to the buying market.

Your Open House
Let buyers experience your home
Open houses provide a potential buyer with the opportunity to be in your home and imagine themselves living in the space. It is one of the best ways for buyers to discover and explore your home.
Amanda will design an open house program convenient for you that may include weekend events, broker and twilight tours, private showings and agent-only lock box access.
Additionally, every open house will be promoted on the MLS which syndicates to major portals such as Zillow, Trulia and RedFin.
To capture local traffic, each event will be well marked with directional signs on key street corners.
Negotiate and Close
Seal the Deal
Should you accept, counter, or reject the offer? Negotiating the terms for the sale on what may be your biggest asset requires a professional team that has your best interests in mind. Do you need a short or long escrow? Will you need to rent the property back? Are you buying another home on contingency or moving out of state?
As an experienced negotiator, I ensure that your best interests are represented and that you get the best terms and price for the sale of your home.
Congratulations! You’ve accepted an offer and now the countdown begins. The closing of your home is urgent and time sensitive. It requires organization, experience and expertise.
As your agent and project manager, I will help you navigate the seller’s disclosures, and make sure your interests are sufficiently protected and the net proceeds are accurately deposited into your bank account.
