Selling your Home in Avondale, Arizona 85392

I am very passionate about selling homes as I earn a living for my family. It is my full time job to get my clients top dollar for their home in the shortest amount of time.

It irks me that real estate agents take this responsibility so lightly. And it shows in their photos, description, marketing, and negotiating during the sell process. I wish sellers would take the time to interview real estate agents and ask questions like average days on market, average list to sell ratio, or how the agent will market to sell their property differently than other agents; then hold each agent to their words. After all, this is the biggest investment a person/ family will make in their lifetime. 

Our marketing plan includes a professional photographer and often aerial shots of the property at our expense. It offers a full public description maximizing the floorplan, schools, community and upgrades.  Each property is then marketed out through multiple channels from yard sign to internet. If interest in the home slows, we take the time to re-write and re-market to generate maximum exposure for each home regardless of the sale price before we just lower a price. We use keywords in our public descriptions that help each home we sell to be found through internet channels.     

This is an example of the photos we use:    

 

This is the description we used to sell the home in 3 days:  

A beautifully renovated home in Avondale, Arizona has just come to the market. It features 5 beds, 2.5 baths, a loft, plus a private pool and is located within walking distance to the ''A'' rated neighborhood school. This is a MUST SEE! YOU will fall in love with the renovations to include bamboo and cork flooring, raised baseboards and custom paint. Updated light fixtures, ceiling fans and window treatments finish out this fabulous home. Custom iron double doors upon entry into the foyer with 10 ft ceilings and decorative plant shelves. One bedroom downstairs. The backyard boasts private pool, lush grass and mature trees. This home has it all: 3 car garage, large lot, rv gate, pavered front and backyard entertaining and view fence. Don't miss an opportunity to see this home today.

  • Notice keywords that anchor a potential buyers internet search to be included such as Avondale, Arizona, Beds, Pool, Renovated, School, and Floor plan.

 

Who you work with matters....Please do your due diligence, ask the questions and hold your agent to a higher standard; this is the biggest financial investment most people make in a lifetime. 

If you are thinking about selling your home, feel free to contact us at 602-717-0604 or go to www.TheKotheTeam.com for a complimentary Resale Home Value; this is alert us that you are thinking about selling your home and we will be in touch from there.
