Attention to Detail

Dodi possess a peripheral vision regarding the details of Selling and Buying Real Estate. Dodi's family jokes that she has eyes in the back of her head and her associates are always relieved that she's not missed a detail in the transaction. Quote, “she does not miss a thing”. Everything counts. Most important everyone counts.  For every property she pinpoints the fine details of the construction, the floor plans, the energy efficiency, the utilitarian features, and she never overlooks the deficiencies. As a full service REALTOR ®, You will want her on your team.

With a over 28 years of experience, and over 2,300 successful real estate transactions, She will proactively unlock the door to your next property.
Here is a checklist to help you throughout the process.

 

Pricing it right!

The competitive nature of the current Real Estate Market means that over-pricing by a few thousand dollars could make the difference between your home selling quickly or not selling at all.

Overpricing your home might mean minimized offers, fewer showings, fewer agent responses, limited financing, limited buyers qualified for your type of home, or a smaller net price. Avoid these outcomes by setting the price of your home at its' market value when you first bring your home on the market.

Any number of the following scenarios could cause a roadblock between you and your goals. Our responsibility to you is to identify potential pitfalls and eliminate them.

There are several criteria you should take into consideration when pricing your home:

  • Never select an agent based on price.
  • Pricing in rising and falling markets
  • Four kinds of numbers used to represent your property
  • Regression and progression
  • Reasons for overpricing
  • The largest impression and most impact a property makes on the market
  • Benefits of proper pricing

For more details on Pricing Strategies,
please contact Dodi at 604-644-3634 or dodi.t@shaw.ca

In closing, please remember that together we can control the Market Plan for your property. And, while we have no control over the Real Estate market, we can fully understand it and work it to your benefit.

Make your property more saleable – check list of does and don’ts

While we all believe that our home is our castle, our personal tastes may not appeal to everyone. I will work with you to provide you with an impartial analysis of your home - how it relates to other "competing" homes on the market and how your home reflects current design and style trends. I'll also closely evaluate the general condition and upkeep of your property.

Together we'll position your home on the market so that the selling process will take place as expeditiously as possible.
