Marketing Your Home
Marketing your home will be one of the most important
things I do. The Lowcountry is experiencing a buyers
market, which means that for every prospective buyer,
there are approximately four homes they may see that meet
their search criteria. My goal is to prepare and market
your home in such a way that it sits at the top of a buyers
list of choices.
I market extensively to all buyers, using both print ads
and internet ads, as well as direct mailers and company
email programs. As buyers become more sophisticated, I
have found that internet advertising has become increasingly
important and I focus a great deal of attention to this
Realtor Database Hilton Head Island Multiple
This is a comprehensive listing of property on Hilton
Head Island and the surrounding Lowcountry. This gives
your property exposure to over 1,000 agents and vastly
broadens the avenues for buyers to receive information
on your property.
MLS Tour Hilton Head Island and Bluffton
Your home will be included on the MLS Tour of New Listings.
The Hilton Head Tour is conducted on Wednesdays and the
Bluffton Tour is conducted on Thursdays. This allows all
agents an opportunity to see your home and offers the
most viewing potential.
Advertising in Local Publications
In addition to internet advertising and market exposure,
your home will be promoted in our local newspaper, the
Island Packet, along with various real estate magazines
for optimum exposure.
Your home will be featured on my website, www.HiltonHeadExpert.com
and will be included in my Featured Listings
We will offer periodic opportunities to invite the general
public to view your home through Open House tours. This
opportunity allows me to showcase your home in strategic
fashion to maximize value.
Preparing Your Home For
Your home can be sold quickly and at a fair price. The
following tips have proved invaluable to owners and are
worth your special attention:
Get rid of clutter. Throw out or file stacks of newspapers
and magazines. Pack away most of your small decorative
items. Store out-of-season clothing to make closets seem
roomier. Clean out the garage.
Let the sun shine in! Open draperies and curtains to show
how bright and cheery your home can be. Wash your windows
and screens to let more light into the interior.
Keep everything extra clean. Wash fingerprints from light
switch plates. Mop and wax floors. Clean the stove and
refrigerator. A clean house makes a better first impression
and convinces buyers that the home has been well cared
Get rid of smells. Clean carpeting and drapes to eliminate
cooking odors, smoke, and pet smells. Open the windows.
Put higher wattage bulbs in light sockets to make rooms
seem brighter, especially dark rooms. Replace all old
Make minor repairs that can create a bad impression. Small
problems, such as sticky doors, torn screens, cracked
caulking, or a dripping faucet, may seem trivial, but
may also give buyers the impression that your home is
not well maintained.
Tidy your yard. Cut the grass, rake the leaves, trim the
bushes, and edge the walks. Put a pot or two of bright
flowers near the entryway.
Patch holes in your driveway and reapply sealant, if applicable.
Clean your gutters.
Polish your front doorknob and door numbers.
Bathrooms sell houses, so make sure that your bathrooms
Remove all unnecessary items that may clutter space. This
