Marketing Your Home In Clayton Is The Beginning
Listing a house for sale in Clayton is just the beginning of what can sometimes be a long and eventful process or a short and simple process. Either way, you want a Realtor that will have the resources and wherewithal to get things done. When you list your house with an agent who knows the Clayton market, the first thing they should be willing to go the extra mile in is marketing. Great pictures and lots of them, of the house and yard at least, then how about pictures of the neighborhood, local stores, schools, neighborhood pool etc. A video of the home is a great way to market the home on YouTube, but it has to be a video not a picture slide.
Open House For 3 Hours On A Sunday Won’t Cut It.
Have your Clayton, NC real estate agent create an individual website for your home it is a wonderful way to promote every aspect and feature of the home and the neighborhood. It takes a bit of work but it is a great way to bundle all the marketing, floor plans, neighborhood, school info in one easy to find site on the Internet, which is as we all know is where 90% of home buyers start looking for homes. Does your real estate agent blog, use social media to help promote your house, or do they do open houses? If all they are doing is listing it and sitting in for 3 hours one Sunday a month, then they are not going the extra mile for you.
Git Er’ Done
Another example of going the extra mile is a recent issue that came up after my listing at 473 Christopher Drive in Ole Mill Stream went under contract. My client, who had already moved out of the house and was living three hours away agreed to have the septic tank pumped as part of the contract. I contacted Bill Hardee of Hardee Septic Tank Service and ordered the pumping. Bill called me later and told me his worker could not access the tank due to a large bush sitting on top of the access panel. Bill came out himself (going the extra mile) and dug enough to expose a corner of the panel. There was a big old shrub the previous owner had planted right on top of the septic tank. What to do? Landscaping companies are so busy in the middle of summer, you’d be lucky to get a call back..so the next morning, a Friday I took a saw, digging bar, shovel and a camera and dug that big shrub out of the ground and exposed the tank access. Saturday morning Bill had his guy come back, pumped the tank and we were good to go.
Seller Already Moved Away From Clayton, NC…Now What
I once had a house in Clayton listed by clients who moved here from Massachusetts where the winters are a little colder than we get here in North Carolina.When they bought the house they immediately closed all the crawl space vents. They listed the house with me and moved back to Boston. We accepted an offer and when the buyers home inspector went in there in July the entire crawl space was dripping with water. The sellers were gone I knew what the problem was so I went over and opened all the vents, two days later the crawl space was bone dry. This was a nice crawl space by the way I may not go in every crawl space I see. That saved the deal, the inspector returned and took a moisture reading it came back normal and we sold the house. Digging holes and cutting down shrubs, opening vents in crawl spaces I can handle but I know my limitations, and when it’s time to call in the experts.
Checking In On Your Home For You
Having a real estate agent who will go the extra mile can take many forms, I have had listings where it’s either an investor property or the seller has already moved and the house is vacant. I’ll go and turn on the lights for a showing if I’m around and the seller can’t get there. You’ll want an agent who will meet the contractors or service people who come to do work on the house. When clients have their home for sale in Clayton and they have already moved and the house has no one living there, they are vulnerable and if the local newspaper drops a paper every week in the driveway and they aren’t picked up, that is a clear sign the house is vacant. Someone needs to pick them up.
Minor Issues Crop Up When Selling A House
Most people only sell a house a couple of times in their lives and so having a real estate agent who can help in most aspects of the process is important. This is especially true in the case of elderly clients selling their homes who maybe can’t do the physical stuff themselves and if it’s a minor job often it’s just hard to find a tradesman to even come and give you a quote. There is a lot of stress when it comes to selling a house, peoples lives are turned upside down with moving and buying a new house, we often never notice little things in our homes that a home inspector will find and the new owner will want repaired.
Know When To Hire The Pro’s
There are circumstances after a home has been inspected that require the seller to hire a licensed contractor, we see it a lot in HVAC systems or electrical work or plumbing, these are times when you call in the professionals. A home buyer does not want these repairs done by the homeowner even if they know what they are doing. Pay the professionals and get a receipt because the buyers agent will ask for it. It’s important to hire a real estate agent who will be able to advise a seller on what to expect from a home inspection and to suggest some repairs or improvements before the house is listed. If its bad now, it’ll be bad when a home buyer come to take a look at the house and they won’t like it either. Fix It!
