  • Selling Your Home

    Selling your home is a very serious financial transaction. Quite possi-

    bly your home is your most valuable asset so when you are ready to sell, you want to make sure you do it properly. Some homeowners

    try to sell on their own but over 80% eventually use a REALTOR

    and realize they wasted a lot of time and effort before they did.

    There are a lot of things to consider but the basics are broken down

    to these items.

    You will need to:



    Market Show


    You may be able to figure out some of this on your own but you

    really should consider using a professional REALTOR to make sure each step is done properly and results in the best return for your

    valuable investment.

    Price for the Market For pricing we will do the footwork and evaluate your home and prop-

    erty to help you get the best price for the current market. We do a

    complete Comprehensive Marketing Analysis to guide you to a mar-

    ketable price for your home. If a home is overpriced, it might never

    sell, or at least it will sit on the market for a very long time. Plus if the buyer is financing most of the purchase, it might not appraise for

    the loan and the entire deal will fall through.

  • Prepare to Show To help you prepare we will offer suggestions for staging your home

    to make it attractive to buyers. We make suggestions on both what

    to make it stage better and what is not worth spending your money

    on. A well staged home will show better attracting more viewers and

    ultimately better offers from impressed buyers. A well staged home often sells sooner than a similar home that doesnt look as nice. First

    impressions make a big difference in home sales.

    Marketing Your Home For marketing we use the best tools available to realtors including the

    comprehensive set of options available through Carpenter Realtors

    that are exclusive to Carpenter agents. The Carpenter Home Market-

    ing System is provided to Carpenter Sales Associates regardless of

    the agents income so every property gets the best marketing avail-able. This system includes print, newspaper, Internet, and even TV

    with Carpenters Showcase of Homes on every Saturday morning. In

    addition to all this The Derrick Team also utilizes our own Above and

    Beyond Marketing detailed later in this book.

    Showing Your Home

    Unlike other Realtors that use less secure combination

    locks, we use the SentriLock lockbox system which allows

    us complete control over who has access to your home.

    This is part of the MIBOR BLC services so only MIBOR members using their assigned security card will be able

    to access your home. Plus these lockboxes only work

    during normal showing hours unlike combo boxes. Carpenter Realtors

    uses Centralized Showing Service (CSS) who will coordinate with you and simplifies the ability of buyers agents to schedule a time to show

    your home. Both these systems allow us to track all showings and

    send you reports with feedback from the buyers agent. We also will

    be happy to hold open houses as we know they do help market your

  • Negotiate for You Finally, the most important step is when a buyer makes an offer. We

    will work with you for negotiations such as sales price, included

    items, and any inspection issues that may arise. We will be there at

    closing to help you with any questions that may come up. We will

    work closely with you all the way through to make sure no unex-pected surprises come up at the last minute.

    Door to Door Service

    The Derrick Team will also help you find your new home and help ne-gotiate that sales transaction with you. We can even help if its on the

    other side of the country. So we can make sure you go from one

    house to your next with the least inconvenience to you and your fam-

    The Power of the Internet: As Carpenter Agents, The Derrick Team utilizes every appropriate form of marketing tools Carpenter

    Realtors provides us but then will do even more for sellers to maxi-

    mize the exposure to interested buyers. As many buyers today do their First Showing online with various Internet sites it is very im-

    portant that an online showing is the best it can be. As most sites pull

    their data from the MIBOR information, we provide the best descrip-

    tions, pictures, links and detailed information to the BLC listing on MIBOR so this happens. Then

    Carpenter Realtors has negotiated with the Indi-

    anapolis Star and to upgrade

    listings with options beyond the standard listing

    In addition to all this great online marketing,

    The Derrick Team will add to the Internet

    showings with a dedicated web site for each of our listings. Why is this important? With each of the products and sites provided to most

    agents, the amount of information and pictures is limited due to the

    large number of listings on each web site. By having a site dedicated

    to each listing we can expand the information, pictures, videos, to as much as we need to properly market

    your property. We register dedicated do-

    main names (such as and then include

    these in all marketing material. A link to this site will be in the BLS information so

    each web site with the listing will include

    a link to your dedicated web site.
