Why Choose Colonial?
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 do you handle buyers making undesirable offers?
As a Realtor®, it’s our job to determine current market value, price your real estate competitively, market, negotiate, and secure the best terms so that you receive the highest price possible for your property. Colonial Real Estate, Inc. wants you to get the maximum value from your property, within YOUR time frame. Here are some of the reasons for selecting COLONIAL REAL ESTATE, INC. to market and sell your home:
STANDARD MARKETING TOOLS:
Our Agents Have Been in Real Estate a While
Our agents have over 200+ years of combined real estate experience, from the “senior” agents to the most “junior”. Several of our agents have gone the extra mile and earned additional designations, from (GRI) Graduate Realtor® Institute, (CRS) Certified Residential Specialist to (E-Pro®) Certification for Internet Professionals. SFR (Short Sales & Foreclosure Resouce)
For many real estate professionals, short sales and foreclosures are the new “traditional” real estate transaction. One third of our agents carry broker licenses. Each year agents are in the business, they develop a catalogue of buyers and sellers that trust their recommendations. When you list with a company with experienced agents, someone in that company probably has a buyer in mind for your property the day it is listed.
Buyers Want to Buy Your Home for as Little as Possible!
Through detailed comparisons between your home and recently sold homes, and other properties in the county on the market, we can determine what your home is really worth in the current market. This is called a Comparative Market Analysis or CMA.
Our Agents Will Personally Tour Your Listed Property
They will provide feedback as to the price, property condition, and potential for sale. We will then discuss their recommendations to see if we need to make changes to your marketing plan.
We Pre-qualify Buyers
Before they waste your time, create emotional attachment with no real intent, and inconvenience your life with useless showings, we investigate their ability to purchase.
Tennessee State Disclosure Requirements
We make sure you comply with all state statutory disclosure requirements. We also inform you of any inspections that you should consider having done ahead of time to smooth the negotiating process with buyers, and to ensure a successful closing.
