Sell Your Home Quickly,
So You Can Purchase Again
YOUR NO FUSS SOLUTION
This proposal sets out our scenario to find a suitable buyer for your property with the minimum of fuss, as quickly as possible and at the highest realistic price in today’s market.
This includes property photography [aerial, exterior and interior], property particulars, listing on all the major online websites, postal mailing all our relevant house hunters, handling all viewings, offers, price negotiations and once a price has been agreed with a buyer, pushing the sale through to completion with the conveyancing solicitors.
At ABC Property Sales we quickly match buyers of property with sellers of property. Emphasis is firmly focused on reality, not best-case scenarios which are rarely achieved in our extensive experience.
End-to-end property solution experts
At our recent meeting, you outlined what you’re looking for from the estate agent who is going to be responsible for your property:
- Experience in selling properties circa $750,000
- Experience dealing with buyers of £$50,000 properties
- Must have very close contact with the seller
- Willingness to use senior negotiators for viewings only
- Have an attitude of "the property must sell" rather than always looking for new listings
- Able to agree on a fee that is based not just on price achieved, but on time taken to find a buyer
Please bear in mind that we are 9-year members of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and this regulates our behaviour and set ethical standards of work.
You also painted a clear picture of what you need from a buyer:
- Chain-free cash buyer, or a buyer who already has a solid offer in place from an unencumbered cash buyer.
- Someone who specifically wants a period property [such as ours] in this specific area, rather than someone looking for a bargain in an undefined area.
What We Promise
You, as our client, will be involved in all the key decisions made in the marketing of the property.
You will also be expected to execute our advice on staging the property so it has maximum appeal to our intended target market.
We have a vast knowledge of what buyers of your type of property are looking for, so want to ensure they see and sense this immediately in your home.
Sound good? Keep reading.
Plan Of Action
We will always aim to give you as much notice as we can, but it’s not always possible.
As part of our ‘You want a quick sale? Keep it like a show home’ policy,
we need you to uphold your end of the deal, otherwise, we cannot offer walk-in visitors [all potential buyers remember] a viewing of your home. They can’t always come back, and spontaneous viewings always have a chance of progressing into a purchase.
Keeping your home ‘viewing ready’ is a vital part of obtaining the highest possible sale price for your property.
A senior realtor will always accompany potential buyers on a viewing of your home. This would be either Charles Swanley or myself.
Quick Sale? Keep it 'show ready'
EXPERIENCE IN SELLING PROPERTIES CIRCA $750,000
We have sold over 100 properties at, and above, your sale price.
This gives us experience in understanding how a buyer in this segment of the market operates. It is different from ‘average property value’ buyers.
If you have to call us for an update we feel we’re not doing our job properly.
We will keep you informed at every point along the way and advise you
of incoming offers on a timely basis.
COMMITMENT TO OUR EXISTING SELLERS NOT NEW SELLERS
Many estate agents chase new listing to the detriment of their existing properties. Not us. We take your faith in us very seriously plus the fact that no buyer for you means no fee for us. And the longer there is no buyer for you, the lower the fee to us.
Process and Timescales
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE
We're very quick. Once you instruct us we’ll visit within 48-hours to measure up, take photos and write the description.
Aerial photos and video may are also usually taken around this time and can be done with or without you present - keeping it simple for you.
Week 1 | Preparing sales particulars like photographs, website listings and marketing campaigns to our active database.
Week 2 | You approve sales particulars and we begin marketing the property to our existing list of potential buyers, our shop front, online and put up a 'For Sale' board.
A simple, effective,
Mr & Mrs Englebert
Mr and Mrs Englebert decided to sell their Chicago 6-bed house because they wanted to move to the Hamptons to get away from the crowded city.
They were the type of couple who made decisions quickly and wanted to act fast to achieve their goal.
We decided a Sealed Bids Sale was the fastest way to achieve their goals and allow them to simply sit back and let us work our magic.
After a month of concentrated local marketing, alongside the usual extensive online marketing, we had 5 offers.
The second highest offer was accepted because they move the fastest but, true to our word, we had a figure of $25,000 above the couple’s asking price of $825,000
Contracts were exchanged and the sale completed 16-weeks after we agreed to sell their home.
Here's what Mr. Englebert had to say about the experience:
"There are a lot of estate agents out there but these guys give it to you straight, won’t feed you nonsense and will do everything required, professionally, to ensure you reach your end goal. Amazing"
- Mr Englebert | Happy Client
At ABC Property, we strive to keep everything as simple as possible; allowing you to sit back and trust us to get the results you need without the usual stress that can be associated with some realtors!
Our pricing is no exception. We want it to be an investment you relish.
A SIMPLE PERCENTAGE. EASY.
We charge a simple percentage of the final purchase price as our fee.
- If we exchange contracts within 90-days of listing your property, we charge 2% of the purchase price.
- If it takes 91-180 days to exchange, then we reduce our fee to just
1.5% of the purchase price.
- After 180-days the fee will be 1% of the purchase price.
We keep it clear and simple.
the best guarantee around
We are so confident in our ability to meet your goals that we have developed one of the best guarantees around:
If we miss a deadline, we drop our percentage. Simple.
This guarantee means that, if things aren’t going to plan, *for whatever reason, then you don’t lose out.
Here’s how it works
As long as you’ve been supplying us with everything we need and living up to your end of the bargain and we’re simply not getting your house sold then you'll pay less when we do sell it. If we get it sold early, we all win.
The details of the fees and the deadlines are outlined on the
'Your Investment' page.
Can't say fairer than that.
