If you are thinking of selling your home, chances are you're caught up in a mass of emotions. You may be looking forward to moving up to a new home or facing the uncertainty of a major move across country. You may be reluctant to leave your memories behind or eager to start new and exciting adventures. Remember, we're here to help you with any of your needs. With the Beaches and Burbs Team, we have 3 easy steps to selling.
Follow along as we take you through the home selling journey. We will explain - from start to finish - how we will prepare your home for sale, market and promote to today's buyer, and assist you throughout the process.
"You never get a second chance to make a first impression."
That's why we believe you should spend more time preparing to go on the market so you spend less time on the market. The goal is to maximize the amount of money you sell your home for while still selling in the time frame you desire.
Buyers are much more savvy today than they used to be. They are able to research recent home sales, tax information, how much you paid for the property, etc. Buyers are subconsciously comparing the features of your home to other homes on the market (or recent sales). As a result, it is very rare that a buyer will pay more than market value. Research has proven that the best marketing in the world can not overcome an overpriced listing.
Automated home value sites are rarely accurate. That is why we will personally meet you in your home to see first hand the features, upgrades, renovations you've made. We will then work with you to compare your home to recently sold properties. Identifying a price that will maximize your profit while still selling in the time frame needed.
When it is time to sell, even the most beautiful home can benefit from staging to strategically enhance its appeal. We can assist in the process by providing guidance on how and what to edit and recommend resources for any needed repairs.
We feel you should spend more time preparing your home BEFORE going on the market so you spend less time ON the market.
The goal is to declutter, rearrange furniture, repair deferred maintenance and spruce up your home so it will appeal to the largest group of buyers.
Approximately, 93% of buyers say that they use the Internet to help find a home. Today, more than ever, how your home is presented online is probably the most important marketing tool. That's why we have professionals photograph every home we list for sale. And we are picky too... we've partnered with some of the best photographers in Atlanta. Our philosophy is to go "all out" when it comes to doing what it takes to sell your home.
Does your property have a feature that needs to be presented from above. For instance, do you have an amazing backyard oasis, a lake fronting your property, or extensive community amenities? If so, we will have a drone fly over your property and photograph these features which add value and make your home special to buyers.
Our marketing plan for selling homes is proactive, aggressive, and above all, results-driven. We don't just throw a sign in the yard, put your home on the MLS and hope for the best. We're here to make home buyers fall in love with your home and it all starts with that first impression.
We know that a home is more than a list of specifications. It's not just hardwood floors and number of bathrooms. It a lifestyle... It is a place that gives hopes, makes dreams come true and establishes memories that last a lifetime. Our goal is to bring these emotions to life through the use of video.
"Facebook Is The Internet."

Our advanced and targeted Facebook marketing reaches thousands of potential home buyers. We create dedicated Facebook Ads to target locals and drive massive amounts of traffic to your listing using our advertising budget.
When someone "shares" your home's Facebook Ad with a friend, they are helping us to market your home to their friends.
We use Instagram to “build a buzz” around your home and connect with the community—ensuring a long list of buyers are ready to view your home as soon as it hits the market.
We'll create a beautiful webpage to feature your home in a way that makes it stand out from the crowd.
With all this marketing we get buyer leads - 100s of them a month. We employ a sophisticated system to respond immediately to these leads (within the first 5 minutes). We immediately send them a voice message, text message and email.
We don't stop with just emailing and text. That's too passive. We will personally reach out to all the buyers who have shown interest in your home. We turn engagement into offers!
