When you list your property with Realatrends, our goal is to achieve the highest possible selling price, within the time frame you have prescribed, in any market situation. To accomplish this we broadcast your listing as widely as possible, on a regular basis, throughout the brokerage community with the fact sheets, brochures, post cards, memos, E-mails, Internet, correspondence, fax, computer contact and personal calls.
Your listing will be placed in the Multiple Listing Services which cover every Board of Realtors from Ventura County to San Diego County. Literally thousands of Real Estate agents will be contacted on a regular basis regarding the availability of your property.
A “Distributor” Approach Which Capitalizes on Direct Marketing
Our marketing decisions are based upon utilizing advertising and direct methods which we have found to be the most beneficial for the caliber of properties we represent. We view our roles more of a distributor of properties, maximizing direct contact with the brokerage community.
By doing so, we create the widest possible exposure to bring you the highest possible price through the hundreds of agents who represent buyers in the marketplace. Our goal is to make sure that your property is seen by as many prospective buyers as possible to generate the maximum amount of interest. The most direct means of coming into contact with the maximum number of potential buyers is through those agents and the Internet. This does not mean that we are not motivated to sell the property ourselves. But our primary job is to maximize exposure in order to obtain the highest price possible.
All of our contracts when representing you will contain provisions for physical and structural inspections; geology inspections; termite inspections; survey; city information, including zoning and permit status; preliminary title search; and seller disclosure analysis. In addition, there may be other unique contingencies to be addressed on specific properties. We consider each and every one of these contingencies because they are there to protect you. Our 60 years of combined experience enables us to fully analyze and disclose each and every contingency. We challenge anyone to do a better job. We are here to make sure that you are fully aware of all of the available information about the property you are purchasing. There is no “buyer beware”. As an example: most agents simply do not understand a preliminary report. They cannot assist you in this most important facet of a purchase. Clark Smith not only understands title policies but he has on many occasions assisted title company officers and attorneys to solve complicated issues.
Should remodeling or additions to a specific property be part of your buying decision, we can assist you in determining the possibilities. Each property in this area has its own set of unique criteria which must be considered.
Conquering The Hurdles
A big part of our job is to make sure that you are given the right guidance to help you achieve your dream, legally and financially. That is why, as with our sellers, we pay attention to every detail of your transaction, from minute to major. You will have our undivided attention in showing you property, drafting contracts, negotiating offers, inspecting physical and geological conditions, and following through the escrow, title and closing paperwork.
When you put the key in the door of your new property for the first time, we want it to be a celebrated, memorable occasion!
