Hi, I'm Marc Cormier, and I understand that selling real estate can be one of the most important decisions you make in your lifetime. As a marketing specialist I pride myself in showcasing all the elements of every property I work with. As a real estate professional specializing in the Washington, DC metropolitan area I have encountered many unique opportunities. Not everyone that owns property here lives here. That's why I understand the need to establish an honest and trusting relationship with direct and clear communication.
Once I understand my clients' needs, I will follow a structured timeline keeping you informed every step of the way. My goal is to educate you on the changes of the current market condition. Over the next few minutes I will show you how working with a marketing specialist like myself will help make the sale of your home a smooth and stress free experience. With my knowledge and experience I will be able to supply you with facts, statistics and a proven marketing plan that will help guide you through the selling process. By working together we will eliminate any concerns or apprehensions you may have.
In any real estate market you will be competing against many other similar homes for sale. That's why marketing has become the driving force behind selling any property. This video is just one example of my commitment to real estate marketing. The days of putting a sign post out front, an ad in the paper and praying for a buyer are long gone. In today's market, technology offers us many new marketing avenues. For example, there's Facebook, Google, Twitter, Zillow, realtor.com and many other websites and search engines available. I also market heavily to the international community consisting of consulates, embassies and foreign business people just to name a few. I open your property to the world.
Buyers are more sophisticated and knowledgeable than ever before. That's just another reason to have a marketing specialist like myself to represent you in the selling of your home. When asked specific or technical questions about your property, you need a real estate professional that has the knowledge and experience to handle situations appropriately. There are terms, inspections, prorations, specialist estimates, financial structures, liens, boundary disputes and more that need to be addressed properly.
Another important area is preparing your property to enter the market. I can help you stage your home so it will yield the best presentation and give you the competitive edge needed in your marketplace. When we get together I'll go through a checklist of major items necessary to stage your home and prepare it for sale. Remember, we want the buyer's first impression to be a lasting one.
Selecting the best price to enter the market is crucial. That is why I go to great lengths to gather information and statistics about the other homes in the market that you're currently competing against. We will review what is currently on the market, what is pending sale, and most importantly review the recent closed sales which dictate what the market will bear. Keep in mind what you owe on a property is of no consequence to the market. Together we will examine these facts along with your goals and expectations. We will select the best price for your property to successfully compete in this market.
I will then prepare an exclusive marketing plan that is designed to attract serious and qualified buyers. I will use various forms of advertising to publicize the sale of your home. I will also market to other real estate professionals in the area. This is a direct avenue to reach all of their prequalified and motivated buyers. I do not take the responsibility of listing my client's property lightly. I take an aggressive approach to marketing and selling their home to bring them the best possible value for their property. I pride myself on staying on the cutting edge of technology and staying abreast of the ever changing market. I know what it takes to market their home and get the job done.
It's important that you feel comfortable and confident with my knowledge, experience and the company I represent in the real estate industry as well as with my successful marketing techniques and how they will benefit you in the sale of your home. I welcome the opportunity to meet with you personally to answer any questions
