  • Should I list my home during the holidays?

    SHOULD I LIST MY HOME DURING THE HOLIDAYS?

    2570 Whiteleigh Drive Atlanta GA 30345 1. Front 1 List My Home During the Holidays




















     It is a common question and I am asked this question often.  My response is “Yes, you should list your home for sale during the holidays”.

    Originally posted at http://englishteam.com/list-home-holidays

    Home sellers are hesitant to list their home for sale during the holidays because of holiday decorations, entertaining family and friends or just too dang much going on during December.  All of these are valid excuses for NOT listing your home during the holidays.

    Why answer YES to the “list my home during the holidays?” question

    1. Corporate transfer buyers are in town during December and make a buying decision based on inventory they can see while they are here.  If you do not have your home listed for sale during the holidays, they will not see your home and can not buy your home.  These corporate transfer buyers look at homes for 2 or 3 days, pick out a home to buy and often close in 30 days.
    2. Not everyone has a hectic holiday schedule.  For some buyers this is a great opportunity to look at homes.  They have some days off and nothing to do.  I get a lot of calls to show homes between Christmas and New Years Day.  I do not work on Christmas or New Years Day, but I am happy to show homes in between.
    3. Get a jump on the competition – there will be a rush for home sellers to put their homes on the market in January.  This translates into a significant increase in competition.  If you list your home in December you get a significant jump on the competition.  Real estate is a “contact” sport and you have to play tough to be a success.
    4. Lots of home buyers shop the Internet during the holidays.  After the Christmas goose or ham has been eaten and all the relatives shipped back home, home buyers pull out their ipads and laptops to  look at homes for sale.  Out Internet traffic goes through the roof during holidays as potential home buyers look at home photos, virtual tours and home descriptions on our website at englishteam.com   The same this happens at Realtor.com, Zillow and Trulia.  Most homebuyers shop the Internet before they actually get in a car and tour homes for sale. 

    2570 Whiteleigh Drive Atlanta GA 30345 3. Family Room 4 List My Home During the HolidaysThe negatives for listing a home for sale during the holidays can be minimized. 

    1. Cut back on holiday decorations but keep the basics.  Think pottery barn versus the Griswalds while decorating your home. 
    2. Establish “no fly” zones for showings and communicate this to real estate agents when they call for a showing appointment.  If you are hosting family Dec 24ththrough Dec 26th, just let agents know when they call for appointments that this time has been blocked out for showings.  I often put this type information in the private remarks section of the FMLS listing. Private remarks can only be viewed by real estate agents. After reading this showing restriction the available times for showings are communicated to the buyer and they show before or after the restricted time.
    3. Go to a movie during scheduled real estate showings or go Christmas shopping or visit friends.  It is a good time to get out of the house anyway, why not have an agent show your home while you are out having fun.
    4. My house is a mess and I don’t want to have a potential buyer see it this way.  This may be the one time I make an exception to the rule of having a home neat and tidy for showings.  If you are hosting family and friends, it is near impossible to have the home neat and tidy.  Tell the showing agent they are welcome to show but you do not have time to clean up the house.  They will understand – their home probably looks the same way.

  • Hire a Real Estate Professional to Get a Jump on the Competition

    Hire a real estate professional when buying a home

    5.Porch2 1024x680 Hire a real estate professional when buying a homeHire a real estate professional when you buy a home.  Yes, I know it is stating the obvious, but obtaining the services of a real estate professional is a step in buying a home.  It is surprising to me that buyers sometimes skip this step. Why any buyer would go un-represented is a mystery to me but I see it all the time.

    A professional real estate agent will earn their fee by assisting you in avoiding common real estate mistakes, sifting through all the junk listings on the market and analyzing your specific real estate needs and wants. Hire a real estate professional when buying a home and you cut out a lot of misery.

    Searching for properties is still a big deal, even when Zillow and Trulia have tons of info and photos available for consumers.  Though many consumers have access to Internet databases providing information on houses for sale, Realtors are alerted with detailed information the minute a new listing hits the market through access to computerized multiple listing services. 

    Once a “fit” is established with a target property, a real estate professional will negotiate the best deal on that property and make sure you are protected from undesirable outcomes. You should hire a real estate professional because they are a great negotiator, not because they are your hairdresser’s neighbor.

    Hire a real estate professional when buying a home because they are neighborhood experts.  Professional Realtors who specialize in a specific neighborhood or area earn their worth with their detailed, street-by-street knowledge of a local market’s intricacies.  Comprehensive information about neighborhoods, schools, demographics, and a myriad of other particulars about an area is at their fingertips.  They have walked through the houses that show up as comparables in the market analysis.  They know which homes have leaking basements, dysfunctional floor plans and poor decorator selections. Additionally, if you’re looking for information on a specific home, your local Realtor can access foreclosure listings, expired listings, and recent sales not yet in public databases.

    What happens when I list my house part I  Link

    Many first time home sellers are thinking about selling their home right now.  The Atlanta housing market is red hot in my neighborhoods (Emory, CDC, Northlake, Decatur, Tucker) and houses are selling.  In part II of the series “What happens when I list my house?” I want to address the actual listing day activities. 

    Listing Day Activities:  Under this category are all the things happen the day we put your home in the MLS.  We can have your home on the market in about three hours – from start to finish.


    Photos: When we are meeting to sign the listing agreement, the seller and I will pick a day to have the listing “go live” on the MLS.  On a day and time convenient to you, the home seller – the English Team photographer will show up at your home ready to capture the best attributes of your home in digital photographs. 

    YOU DO NOT have to be present on the photo day.  My photographer prefers you not be at home – but is also perfectly willing to work in the presence of whoever is home at the time.

    The best time of day for photographing your home  is rather early in the morning.  Starting about 8:00 am, the light is soft and images of your home will have the most color and POP on the Internet. It takes about 60 to 90 minutes to photograph your home.  I know it sounds like a long time – but their will be 125 to 250 images the photographer will capture during that time

    HOME FEATURE INVENTORY: At the same time the photographs are being taken, we do a room by room inventory of home features for your property.  We use this inventory to write marketing copy and to answer specific buyer questions about your home.

    DSC 0007 680x1024 What Happens When I List My House? Part IISUPRA LOCKBOX: A supra lockbox is attached to your front door or wrought iron railing.  Inside the SUPRA lockbox is your house key and any specific information we need for showing agents.  Typically this is the alarm code for your security system.

    The SUPRA lockbox is operated electronically by licensed Georgia real estate agents (technically licensed salespersons and brokers).  Each agent will have an electronic key that sends an infrared signal to the SUPRA lockbox instructing the box to release the container with the house key in it.  

    Once this signal is sent, SUPRA captures the name of the agent, the Brokerage company they work for, their email address, phone number and mailing address.  We also know the day and time the LOCKBOX was opened.  More about this in the next article in the series!

    YARD SIGN AND POST: During the photography appointment, we put up the yard sign and our distinctive post.  We often get phone calls within minutes of the sign going up in your front yard.

    BACK AT THE OFFICE: once we leave your home, we hustle back to the office where we process the photographs on PHOTOSHOP.  We cull the photographs down to 25 images that best describe your homes features and tell the marketing story we want to craft.  Each photo is given personal attention so that it POPS on the Internet.

    LIST IN FMLS AND GAMLS: We personally input your home into both First Multiple Listing Service (FMLS) and Georgia Multiple Listing Service (GAMLS).  We pay attention to the details that make your home stand out from the crowd.  With a tap on the mouse your home is officially “for sale”

    Contact Sally English and the English Team if you are thinking about listing your Atlanta Georgia home.  Call or text Sally English 404-229-2995.  You can send us an email HERE.
