Here at Loretta Witt Homes, we strive to treat all our clients with fairness, respect, and compassion. We have built our exceptional team and have had so much success in our industry because of our genuine commitment to our clients. When you decide to sell your home with us, you will never feel like just a number or a property. Instead, you will see the amazing process that takes place when we get to know you, grow with you and help you move forward!
Every listing begins with a free, no-obligation consultation in your home. We will ask you questions and listen intently to your answers to get a better understanding of you, your timeline and your goals. We will invest the time to understand and meet your expectations and above all, we will be honest with you.
By signing a listing agreement we are agreeing to stand by each other through the process of selling your home. We don’t just show up and expect your home to sell itself instead we are there to support you every step of the way. Any question big or small, our team is here to guide you!
Once we have a clear goal in mind it is time to start preparing your home. Typically we will begin the process with a pre-inspection which helps inform buyers of the condition of the home before they are asked to make an offer. By disclosing to buyers ahead of time, you manage their expectations and minimize the chances they have to renegotiate in a settlement. Next, we will work with a professional photographer to stage your home, our staging check-list has been modified and perfected over our many years in business. The best way to prepare your home for a photographer is to try to make it a blank slate that potential buyers can envision their own style, taste, and personality in!
Being an expert in your neighborhood/community is key to being a successful real estate agent. Our team members have not only worked in Philadelphia and the surrounding neighborhoods but they have lived, built and raised families, attended events and concerts, visited amazing restaurants, built communities and watched or contributed to change. With 34 years of experience in these neighborhoods, we understand the features, trends and seasons that make selling a particular home successful. Using this expertise we will help you decide on an asking price that will bring in offers and still deliver the return you are looking for.
Marketing is a key aspect of getting your home in front of potential buyers and we take this step very seriously. Utilizing world-class marketing techniques our team will create an advertising campaign for your home that reaches thousands of potential buyers. We start with beautiful professional photography that catches the eye and helps create instant interest in your property. On occasion, we will also utilize professional videography such as drones to attract more attention. Next, we will publish your home in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), Zillow, Trulia, Realtors.com and the Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Facebook Page.
But that’s not all! We will also create a Facebook Ad Campaign which uses targeted online marketing to help increase the number of potential buyers who view your home! This will be coupled with a tailored email blast that will go out to our entire database of over 3,500 people! Once a potential buyer has shown interest in your property we will continue to target them by redirecting them to our website and showcasing on our blog!
Lastly, we have developed really great relationships with local businesses such as Local Newspapers, Curbed Philly and other media outlets who have showcased our listings for us. We will continue to foster these relationships and make sure our clients are getting the most and best exposure possible.
Once you have made the home available for showings and open houses we will begin to review offers.
1. You Accept the Offer
2. You Reject the Offer
3. You Negotiate the Offer
When it comes to negotiating there are two major benefits of having a realtor who has been successful in her field for over 30 years. First of all, she’s been around the block, she’s had every type of conversation, situation, personality, and obstacle thrown her way and she overcomes them all with grace, honesty and 5-star reviews. This means that no matter what is thrown at our team, we have the knowledge, composure and proven negotiating tactics to close the deal.
Second, shes built long-lasting, important relationships, with those who are in the industry and those who are in the community. Through these relationships, she not only understands her target market better but also who she is dealing with which can give the seller a leg up when it comes time to negotiate. Our team is thoughtful and experienced and will work on your behalf until you are completely satisfied!
Once you have accepted a buyers offer there is still a bit of work to be done. We will work with you to satisfy all contingencies of the agreement of sale such as property inspections, appraisals, and clear title. We will keep you informed and educated through the entire process and once the contingencies are met, it’s time to dot the i’s and cross the t’s.
Congratulations! You just sold your home and are ready for the next adventure that life has to offer!
Our advanced and targeted Facebook marketing reaches thousands of potential home buyers, weekly.
