"Timothy- Glad to hear the news that we closed. Thank you so much for all your help. I like how you got on the listing right away and wasted no time. You managed this sale very effectively and appreciate your advice. Thanks again. - John Victor."

Selling your home is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life. How much is it REALLY worth? How long will it take to sell? How can I be sure I will get the best possible price? How do you handle buyers making undesirable offers? How do I find the best realtor? How do I ensure that the sale closes without complications?

As Lake County's leading real estate team of Realtors with many years of collective experience and a proven track record of success, it is our job to guide you through this complicated process, from beginning to end. We want you to get the maximum value for your home, within YOUR time frame. Here are just some of the things that we will do to market and sell your home:

- Buyers want to buy your home for as little as possible! Through detailed comparisons between your home and recently sold homes, and other properties currently on the Lake County market, together we can determine what your home is really worth in today's market. In the industry this is called a Comparative Market Analysis or CMA. We will do this for you, for free. We will also take into account your time frames as well, and how that might affect what you will walk away with.

- Buyers have their own timelines, which might not be yours! I make sure they don't waste your time by qualifying them as to their real ability to afford your home.

- More buyers interested in your Lake County home means more money in your pocket when it is sold. Why does marketing matter? It gets your property sold for more money and sooner. Marketing makes you money. We guarantee our marketing and it is second to none in Lake County, embracing the broad range of opportunities on the internet, as well as covering print media and marketing to other realtors. The broader range of buyers we can expose your property to, the greater the chance of you finding that buyer who will pay you the best price for your property on the current market. This way our extensive marketing of your home assures you of maximum value. For example, within 24 hours of listing your property on the Lake County Multiple Listing Service, your property uploads to Realtor.com, the most trafficked website in the world. Our listings are specially enhanced so that they stand out from, and rank higher than the other listings there. Also, this web site will market your property all across the web. It will appear on Yahoo Real Estate, Microsoft MSN HomeAdvisor, and other top national sites. We can place your home on our web site within a few minutes time! More and more buyers are using the internet to find their home. As high as 90%! This dramatic change has occurred in just a few years. We fully appreciate it, and we have adapted our business to ensure that all of our sellers get maximum benefit of internet marketing, in addition to the traditional marketing methods. We know how to work with buyers creatively and efficiently. This is why Timothy sells to more buyers than any other realtor in Lake County and that is the expertise that our team is based on.

- Be aware that different real estate companies are not alike. Before you choose to list your property with a particular realtor, be sure that you have interviewed more than one real estate team, so that you can be confident you are not compromising how much you are able to sell your property for, and how quickly. Effective marketing is often about doing a lot of small things that together embrace the full breadth of an effective marketing program. Leave anything out, and you could be missing out on finding that one buyer for your property. If you are considering selling your Lake County property, we can give you the essential or complete list of elements to include in your marketing program. Even if you are intending working with another real estate team, you can be sure that they are not leaving anything out that might help your property sell.

- When we begin marketing your home, we will immediately notify all the buyers that we are helping find their ideal home by email, phone or mail. We have over 2500 buyers on our personal email database. We'll also notify all the Realtors in this area, as well as local counties, that we work with, who quickly tell their homebuyers. It is a powerful way to jump-start the sale of your home! Many other realtors miss the importance of marketing their listings to other realtors. We don't! We know you don't particularly care which realtor represents the buyer of your home. We would like it to be us of course, but our priority is to find the best buyer of your home, and that buyer may be represented by another realtor. So we will make sure other realtors in your area, know the benefits that your home has to offer. We will email your property to over 4000 other realtors in Lake County and the North Bay.

- We will advise you how to present your property to maximize its selling price. Some improvements are worth it, and some are not! Be careful.

- Contracts are complicated, and intimidating. You don't want to go to a closing with some doubts. And once the sale is done, you don't want to have any problems afterwards. You will have the full benefit of our extensive real estate experience and knowledge for a smooth and successful closing. We recommend that you do not sign on any dotted lines without consulting with us first. We will maximize your legal protection at every step of the way.

Despite all the marketing we do, there may be a situation where you may not be able to sell your home for the price that you need to achieve. If that occurs, we will be able to assure you, that this did not occur because your home was not made known to the broadest number of potential buyers. If that occurs, it will come down to the market, which can be very tough at times, but you will know that if you home could have sold, it would have.

Even in this instance, you pay no up front costs for our services! So you can bet that we will work hard and skilfully to get your home sold, for as much as this market will possibly bear. We will also work within your time frame and your needs. For example, sometimes it can be hard to sell and move out of your current home, and buy and move into a new home, all at the same time! We can help smooth this out.

In summary, sellers choose us because of our extensive experience, our history of consistent success, our commitment to fulfilling their needs first, our unrivalled marketing and our personable approach. We want to achieve your housing goals, and we want to have it be as enjoyable and problem-free as possible.

Call or email us. Ask for a free In-Home Presentation. We will come to your Lake County home or office, and present you a plan that details exactly how we will market your home. There is absolutely no obligation so don't let this opportunity pass. It is part of our job as the County's leading team of realtors to offer you this service. We're here to help.

"I also want to compliment your office for sending out your new listing info to the agents. There again, very few agents/offices take the time to do so. You are really working for your seller and I appreciate that Great Fact!" - Marilyn Bartalini
