Marketing your Home
Texas Property Sisters employs a professional staging service to offer recommendations on preparing your home for sale. The service furnishes a written report on how to make your property more marketable by highlighting the property’s features rather than personal belongings.
Three things to remember
- You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.
- A review of over 2,800 properties in eight cities found that staged homes, on average, sold in half the time that non-staged homes did
- Most buyers make decisions about the property they see within the first 15 seconds of entering the home.
Texas Property Sisters professionally photographs your home for printed brochures and electronic marketing. Properties are promoted through internet photo galleries on the Texas Property Sister and other websites. Notice the difference below. The photo on the left was taken with a cell phone. The photo on the right is the same room taken by a professional.
When you list with us, your home will be presented on the Keller Williams Listing Service (KWLS) and the local MLS (Multiple Listing Service). We include numerous photographs and a written description of the property. We promote your home with premium packages on REALTOR.com and Zillow, the two premier real estate websites.
Our system allows your property to be marketed 24/7 on more than 500 of the most popular real estate websites. Additionally, your home will be promoted across multiple social media outlets such as facebook, instagram, google, youtube, and others.
Texas Property Sisters provide a full color graphic for display inside your home. This flyer includes upgrades, improvements, and specific information regarding your property.
Clients may choose to have a custom website built just for their home. Custom websites feature all the information about the home and a slide show with all the pictures taken by our professional photographer.
With your permission, we hold your home open for buyers to visit. Our standard usual process to prepare for for open houses includes: posting the open house on the Internet, adding a rider to your yard sign announcing the open house, mailing postcards to your neighborhood and move-up neighborhoods, calling behind the postcards to invite neighbors and prospective buyers to your home.
ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS
We promptly answer requests for information about your home, whether the inquiry comes by telephone or Internet. If we feel the buyer has the ability to purchase, we always ask if we can schedule a showing.
Texas Property Sisters aggressively follow up with agents who have shown your home. We call or email to elicit feedback about your property. Understanding buyer’s responses — positive or negative — is critical to the swift sale of your home.
WHEN AN OFFER IS RECEIVED
When an offer is received, we take action and interview the buyer’s agent and lender. We make every effort to ensure the buyer is motivated and qualified before you take your home off the market.
