REALTOR®: Listening, Informative, Guiding You Home!

Preparation can get you ready for the selling process, but finding a buyer requires a well executed marketing effort. There are a number of components to a well conceived marketing plan. Understanding each and what it can contribute to your sales effort - is important to achieving the best results. More importantly, tough markets require serious players that are well trained, financed and most likely, well versed in the technology that help sells your home.

Each home is unique, selling can entail a variety of marketing strategies. What makes Tony Ward different is that we don't just list your home on the MLS. We are well versed in the science of packaging, pricing, and aggressively marketing your home to sell! While many agents settle for simply listing your property on the Multiple Listing Service, I consider the sale of your home to be a new product launch that requires a proven marketing strategy and brilliant execution.

Real Estate Marketing is all about informing the public about how wonderful your property shows. Our marketing is a cumulative actions of carrying the co brand & value proposition to potential customers in an effect to sell your property. Experienced Realtors base their marketing efforts on exciting co op agents, buyers, and neighbors alike by marketing your property with descreptive details regarding your property for sale. The following are a list of marketing resource's and reason's you pay a professional REALTOR® like Tony Ward to market your home:

Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)

I will develop and review with you a comprehensive Comparative Market Analysis to assist you in establishing a sales price for your home. We will use current data from the MLS to compare your home to similar homes that are for sale, sold and expired. Factors such as your home location, property condition, market condition, and motivation for selling will all be influences for determining the suggested selling price. Because bank appraisers use comparables, the information I am going to share will give us a jump on the appraiser. After analyzing comparable home sales in your neighborhood, we will establish a competitive selling price, with keen eye on avoiding overpricing. Homes that are overpriced stagnate on the market, and give the impression that there’s something wrong with the property.

Certified Pre-Owned Home

Actively market your listing as a "Certified Pre-Owned" home. By having it professionally inspected before it goes on the market! As you know, home buyers want a home that is in tip-top shape regardless of the age. That's why having a pre-listing inspection makes complete sense. Since this pre-listing program requires the seller to confirm that there are no major systems in need of immediate repair or replacement and that there are no known safety hazards (which is what requires the seller to address the important things found in the inspection), the home is now more marketable and will help the sellers get their maximum selling price. Why jeopardize the sale by waiting for the buyer's inspector to develop a long list of unexpected repair items? Making the repairs in advance of the sale and then properly positioning and marketing the pre-listing inspection will sell your listing for more money, in less time, and with less hassle!

Property Signage

We will place a distinctive Allison James Estates & Homes residential yard sign on your property lawn to increase traffic. With the help of our turn by turn directional signs your home will gain the exposure from drive-by prospective buyers looking for home's in your community.

Electronic Lockbox

I will utilize an electronic lockbox to facilitate each showing of your property by buyer and tenant agents. Our electronic lockbox are state of the art and provide information such as the agent name, time, date when entering the property via the lock box. This will allow me to follow up with Realtors who has toured the home for feed back. Also, the lock box will provide restricted showing times and security for homeowners.
