I am focused on personalized service that exceeds the expectations of our clients to successfully guide you through the selling process. Working with a team allows me to pool information, knowledge, and experience to assist you in achieving your real estate goals. Our long history and close ties to the local San Luis Obispo community and the area’s most respected real estate professionals help ensure the process is smooth and your closing successful.
As a full-service professional real estate company, I am committed to the following services when assisting you in the sale of your home or investment property:
Market Evaluation and Listing Presentation: I will provide you with a Market Evaluation and Listing Presentation which will explain who we are and the services we provide. The Market Evaluation and Listing Presentation will explain Re/Max Parkside Real Estate along with the Re/Max Brand. Included within the presentation will be a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of your home which is a free analysis of the San Luis Obispo County market and comparable homes. These homes share similar features with your property and are referred to as comps. Comps provide statistical data that, coupled with our knowledge of local trends, allow you to make an informed decision on the listing price of your property. It is important to price your home based on current market data.
Advertising: Utilizing our marketing techniques gained from years of experience as tech-savvy entrepreneurs, we have come up with innovative ways to penetrate the San Luis Obispo County real estate market to ensure that the maximum number of potential buyers see your property. We refuse to be boxed in to a single kind of advertisement like many realtors who just list their properties in the local publications. We utilize many forms of print and online advertising including professional flyers, print ads in appropriate publications (Central Coast Homes Magazine, Realty Connection Magazine, Central Coast Homes and Land Magazine, The Paso Robles Gazette, The Paso Robles Press, The Telegram Tribune, etc.), and letters & postcards to surrounding homes and our extensive list of contacts. We also advertise your property in numerous places all over the World Wide Web so your home is getting exposure 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This includes a feature listing on our extensive website www.ListwithJoshua.com along with www.ReMax.com , www.Realtor.com , www.Zillow.com ,www.Costar.com ,www.Loopnet.com , www.ParksideRealtors.com, and many others.
Imputing your property into the Central Coast Regional MLS: MLS stands for Multiple Listing Service and is a directory where local realtors post residential, commercial, and rental properties. This means that virtually every realtor in San Luis Obispo County will see your home and let their buyers know!
Announce listing to San Luis Obispo County top real estate agents: I will announce your listing through various channels to Re/Max Parkside’s top realtors who help hundreds of buyers in San Luis Obispo County find their dream home. We will also distribute your listing to our large network of top agents from other broker firms in San Luis Obispo County and the surrounding areas. These top agents will then personally market your property to their prospective clients, pitching it as a secret gem.
Photographing & Virtual Tour: Your home will be professionally photographed with high quality images. These images are then uploaded to the MLS, our website, along with our network of other sites which include www.Craigslist.com, Yahoo Real Estate, www.Trulia.com, www.Zillow.com and numerous other sites. A virtual tour will also be created of you home which will also be placed on the above mentioned sites.
Inspections & Disclosures: A key part of selling your home is performing the necessary inspections (physical home inspection, pest inspection, etc.) and writing up the necessary disclosures for the potential buyer. This is done for your legal protection and gives the buyer a sense of safety and comfort as they are informed about the property’s details, and thus feel more secure about making a financial commitment. As your professional San Luis Obispo County Realtor, I will schedule all necessary inspections and draft up all disclosures so all you have to do is sign on the dotted line!
Open Houses & Showing Your Home: How is your property going to sell if people can’t come in and see it? While being sensitive to each seller’s need for privacy, I work with the seller to establish dates and times for us to personally show the property and hold open houses.
If authorized by the seller, I also schedule our affiliated top agents to host open houses as each agent caters to different potential buyers. This strategy has the greatest success in getting your home sold fast, for the highest selling price. While many realtors hold the property open once a month, our goal is to hold it open as often as is convenient with your schedule. If the property is vacant I try to hold open houses every Saturday and Sunday to ensure that the greatest number of prospective buyers see your home. More viewings increase the demand for your home, resulting in higher offers, and more net profit for you.
Negotiating: As a result of our innovative marketing strategies and powerful sales techniques you will inevitably have offers coming in on your home. As both a real estate sales and investment company I will be able to help you sort through the offers, offering professional guidance. This ensures that you receive top dollar for your property, and not fall prey to any of those get-rich-quick investor schemes. I know that selling your home can be a very emotionally draining process, but you can rest assured that I will be negotiating for you personally and standing his ground, fighting for your profit.
Legal Advice and Drafting up Contracts: Realtors are not allowed to give formal tax and legal advice, but I can help explain the contract and its legal ramifications. I have the technical knowledge to walk you step by step through the many pages of legal jargon and disclosures that make up the Real Estate contract. While many realtors have you simply sign at the bottom line, I believe in educating you on the home selling process. This way you know exactly what you are signing and how each amendment of the contract will affect your net profit and selling experience. I sit down with you for as long as it takes, explaining the contract in more simplified language because misunderstanding the legally binding text will have serious ramifications. I live in a highly litigious society that prosecutes first and asks questions later. Let us take on the legal responsibility for you, protecting your capital and putting your mind at ease.
From start to finish I will be there as your San Luis Obispo County real estate expert to walk you through the entire process of selling your home. As I have taken the first step in educating you on the complexity of the home-selling process, we trust we’ve proven our expertise. The next step is to give me the chance to put my expertise to work for you.
