Are you selling your home for the first or second time?
If so, you are probably entertaining the idea of listing your home with a REALTOR® and may even be finding this a frustrating exercise. You may even be considering selling your home yourself and have some questions.
First of all, it may seem like all REALTORS® have a similar approach to selling a home. They will use comparable sold listings and homes currently listed in the area to determine your home’s value and they should have a marketing system that could include photographers, stagers and the like. Sometimes you get the 3P’s of selling, Put it on the MLS® System, Put a Sign in the Yard and Pray it will sell. Our approach is quite different.
So how can you decide which one you should choose?
Let’s face it at the end of the day, doesn’t it really come down to finding an Agent who will sell your home in the least amount of days for the most amount of money?
That way you can limit the challenge of keeping your house clean for showings, not to mention uprooting everyone in the house for those weekend and evening showings, especially if you have young children. You can feel relaxed and reassured that you will get the best price for your home so you can move on to your next dream home.
That’s where Waller Real Estate Group can help you…..
We believe that you aren’t paying a REALTOR® for their time, you are paying them for the results they get you in that time. Here’s how we can help you achieve those results.
Difference #1 – Accurate Home Evaluations
Selling your home for the most amount of money takes a specific approach.
For a start, while looking at what homes have sold for in your area to come up with a value of your home is a good start, it’s just not enough to get an accurate evaluation.
You also need to be looking closely at the current market conditions, your reason or motivation for selling, and whether now or 6 months from now could make a difference to your bottom line and your average time on the market. That takes an experienced and reputable REALTOR®, and not easy to master without years of experience.
With 30+ years in the Calgary marketplace and having sold thousands of listings, Waller Real Estate Group is a great predictor of what you can expect in the marketplace, in any market condition. We have been through them all.
Secondly, not all homes are the same and special features can make your home worth more or less than others in your neighbourhood. That’s why appraisers can sometimes be more accurate at pricing your home and this is why our Broker Tom Waller went a step above most Agents and secured his Appraiser credentials. Not only that, a partner and member of our team has an MBA so can use analysis techniques most other Agents would not have any training using.
The Proof: According to the Calgary Real Estate Board, Waller Real Estate Group’s average sale price over our last 1000 listings (that’s right 1000), was 98.4% of listing price.
“Waller Real Estate Group promised me they would get at least $470,000 for my home. We sold within 2 days at $473,800 which was approximately $20,000 more than 4 other REALTORS® said they could get for my home.”
“Tom knows his stuff and his market evaluation is bang on.”
Difference #2 – We focus on selling and have a tested and proven marketing plan and strategy.
To sell your home in the least amount of time takes experience. It means understanding the marketplace, buyer motivation, market trends and having strong negotiation skills.
Sure Waller Real Estate Group has a great team of stagers, photographers and admin team to market your house effectively. Most Real Estate Agents who stay up on new, innovative marketing techniques do. That means we also promote your listing using online tools like an interactive floorplan, mobile marketing and social media channels along with the traditional techniques. We don’t just put your home on the MLS® system, put a sign in the yard and then pray it will sell.
And with 30+ years of placing consistently in the top 1% of Calgary’s REALTORS® we have proven we can also SELL your home. Waller Real Estate Group believes in finding what makes your house exceptional to buyers pricing it competitively for the current market and then staying firm on your listing price when offers do come through. We will give you straight advice about your home and not just tell you what you want to hear in order to get the listing.
According to the Calgary Real Estate Board, on well over 1000 listings in the good times and bad, our average time on the market is less than the Real Estate board average days on market.
“Our house was on the market for 1 week and sold.”
“Waller Real Estate Group stood up for and fought for top dollar. They will say in a polite and respectful way when an offer is unacceptable. By staying firm, they got me what I wanted.”
“Waller Real Estate Group got us over 40 showings.”
“Tom was the only REALTOR® I interviewed that saw nothing but the positives of my house. I mean if a REALTOR® doesn’t think my house is great, how are they going to represent it well, right?”
Difference #3 – A Positive Experience From Beginning to End
Selling your home doesn’t finish with the acceptance of an offer. In fact, it’s the steps a good Real Estate Professional and their Brokerage takes after the signed offer that ensures a smooth hassle free possession date.
