Provide all the information you need to know about the process. We will give you a Seller's Package. This gives you an overview of the overall market conditions, the selling process, the Aloha Group Maui marketing system, and the documents you’ll be seeing. There will also be information about valuation, escrow, the lending and regulatory environment and other details to help you get a clear picture.
Provide an accurate estimate of your home’s value. In other words, what’s your house or condo worth? We will prepare a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). This is not an appraisal. It is what we think your property might appraise for, what it might sell for, and what we think the listing price should be. We use a combination of art and science with proprietary Realtor tools, MLS data, tax data, public records, market trends and local knowledge to come up with best number possible.
Provide insight regarding when you choose to list your home. We’ll show you your odds of selling at any time of year - in an up or down market.
Advise you about decluttering and what repairs or upgrades to make. We will help you understand what you can control and what you can’t that will affect the timing of the sale and your selling price. We’ll advise you on how to prepare your property for showings, photo shoots, videos and caravans. We will point out what needs to be moved, removed and make general decluttering suggestions. If it’s appropriate we’ll bring in our professional staging partner. We will discuss what repairs or upgrades you need to make and how they might affect the selling price. Some are worth doing and some are a waste of money. We’ll help you understand which are which.
MARKETING – our specialty! We’ll market your property better than anyone else. Before Lee was in real estate he was in marketing and advertising. We have a strategic model that we follow and customize it for each specific property. The plan includes:
A. A detailed story about your property, what sets it apart, what makes it unique, the things about it that people will love, the neighborhood, the development, the area and anything else that a potential buyer would want to know to make him or her want to see your property. We will use this in multiple ways.
B. Professional Photography – great shots at the right angles to take advantage of staging to put your property in the right light. We’ll use these photos for multiple purposes. A picture is worth a 1,000 words.
C. A narrated video. If you remember the story that Lee wrote, we condense that and add just the right amount of narration to enhance the story that the video tells. We recently saw a stat from Forrester Research that said “One Minute of Video is Worth 1.8 million Words”.
D. We buy a domain that will create some marketing buzz - past titles included MauiBeachHouse.com and TheDolphinHouse.com - and build a landing page, sort of a mini-website, just for your property. This is especially helpful to make your property really stand out for any buyers surfing the web, and, according to research, over 94% of all buyers start their buying search online.
E. We write blogs about your property. These are very powerful in getting your property in front of both the professional real estate community, on island and around the world, and they drive people to your landing page.
F. We target qualified buyers (and the professionals that represent them) that fit the profile of someone that might buy your property through social media and paid online advertising. We also continue to use post cards and emails as they are still very effective – especially when directed towards our carefully managed database.
G. Additionally, all of our listings are featured on KW.com - exposing them to the world’s largest real estate company that has over 150,000 agents. Our listings are also syndicated on over 350 different websites including Zillow.com, Realtor.com, and Trulia.com.
Schedule showings and collect feedback. We schedule showings, get feedback and advise you on any action that might be appropriate. The feedback will include what they liked, what they didn’t like, what you can control and change and what you can’t.
Communicate and keep you informed. We will call or email you - your preference, on Fridays with an update.
Receive and negotiate offers. Negotiation is part art and part science. Our aim is to get you the best price and terms to get your home or condo sold with the least hassle for you. By the way, that doesn’t mean just price. It means advising you on how to handle inspections and when to schedule the closing date.
Advise you during the escrow process once an offer is accepted. Once you have an accepted offer and we open escrow, Donna (our transaction manager) will take the lead to make sure all the paperwork is done on time, all the contingencies and conditions are met on time, and the deal closes on time. Again, we do the work to create the least hassle for you. She will give you an update once a week that includes how the buyer is progressing on the loan and a lot more.
Help you find your next home. If you are selling your residence and you’re staying on island we can help you find your next residence. If you are moving off island we can find an excellent Realtor in your new community using our professional associations and Keller Williams connections.
Help you with 1031 exchanges and other tax related issues. If you are selling an investment property we can help you with a 1031 exchange to avoid HARPTA, if applicable, and defer capital gains taxes.
These are just a few of the details that we will handle for you. We will make selling your Maui property as hassle-free as possible. Please contact us if you would like us to help you sell your Maui property or to know more about selling real estate on Maui.
