Summer Selling Starts in January

It's hard to believe, but selling your home by summer 2013 can mean starting at the beginning of the new year. Starting preparations in January helps create an easy and smooth selling experience so you can focus on the next step. On average, it takes about a month to get your home ready to go on the market. Usually there's two weeks for minor repairs, and another two weeks for our marketing team to capture the story of your home and create all of the amazing materials. That means your home would be ready for total exposure on the market in February. Based on the average days on market for homes in Portland, your home could receive an offer around April. The transaction would close by May, and you would be ready to move on to the next step by June. Starting in January allows you to take the time you need to sell and prepare for what comes after. Let's strategize on how to sell your home in 2013.

Marking Listings the M Way

I'm super excited to share how M Realty has been marketing listings. I was on the development team that worked for several months to amp up how listings are marketed to buyers. The part I'm most excited about is that we are really telling the story of a home, and using the best print and online materials to express this story to buyers. Check out the property website to see the Story, the Gallery, and how we communicated the home to buyers. The listing that we first implemented this new strategy on went pending in just 6 days, and I know that is is due to the sheer number of people who experienced the home. The house is a quality property, and the quality was expressed in the marketing materials.

The most exciting thing about the marketing for this listing is that we really show all the main benefits of living in this home. The gourmet kitchen, the great room. the rooftop deck, the neighborhood, these are all things that most buyers are interested in, and by showing how they will be used by the future owner, they begin to be emotionally attached to the home and imagine themselves living in it.
