Sarasota Real Estate Market News

Sellers

 If you read some of the news items on this website, many authors agree that these are extraordinary times unlike any other in the real estate market.  I believe that to succeed in these extraordinary times, you want an extraordinary agent to list and sell what is likely to be your most prized asset.   By utilizing the latest technology, I provide buyers instant information about your property 24/7.  In addition to providing them with the instant gratification they seek, I am able to contact them while their interest is peaked, and usually while they are still in front of your home!  Research shows that 90% of today’s buyers use the internet and similar technology to search for their home.  In today’s competitive market, you can no longer rely on traditional marketing methods alone to sell your property.  Your agent must use the same technology your potential buyers are using and know how to make the most of it.  When you list your home with me it is placed on 350 of the most popular real estate websites, exposing it to over 12 million potential buyers each day.  Choose an agent that uses the latest technology to sell your home.

In addition to attracting buyers, my Job as your REALTOR is to manage the sale of your home and, although each of our situations is unique, most sellers share the same priorities:

  • To attain the best price and terms for their property.
  • To sell in the shortest possible time.
  • To sell with the least amount of inconvenience. 
  • To receive frequent communication regarding the sale of your property throughout the process.
