Here’s his proven 4 steps to success!
REAL ESTATE AGENT SELECTION
Previously Real Estate Advertising Manager at Fairfax Media i.e. Domain.com.au, Domain Age & The Melbourne Weekly’s, Craig’s knowledge of Real Estate Agents is second to none! When it comes to knowing who the better Real Estate Agents are Craig has no peers! After Vendor Marketing & Craig is appointed, he shortlists the 3 best agents in your local area. “We’re the only vendor advocate that can hand select the best agents because we do not solely share in the agent’s commission. The very best agents will not work under such arrangement. Furthermore, you will pay a higher commission for outdated and unqualified advice.” After Vendor Marketing has shortlisted the 3 best agents for your sale, Craig personally takes them through your property, one by one, before having them complete his comprehensive ’11 Point Brief.’ After receiving each of the agents’ submissions, which are forwarded to our clients, we then drill down and review the submissions producing a comprehensive 5 page analysis, and present this to you.
ACCURATE PRICE QUOTING
“The days of under-quoting and over-quoting a property have gone! It’s about quoting a property right to get it right!” Vendor Marketing has a simple process it follows to ensure you get the most accurate valuation for your property. Once this is done then the correct pricing strategy is applied to your campaign. Our unique method also allows us to devise the correct Reserve Price strategy if Auction is chosen to be the best method of sale for your campaign.
MAKING THE MOST OF PRESENTATION
To assist our vendors with getting this right, we can arrange for a property stylist to meet you for some initial complimentary advice, at your property. “We know from experience it’s the little things that make a huge difference.” For more presentation tips, you can click on learn more which will take you to a category of articles dedicated around property presentation.
