Chris Brown's seller services

  • Offers competitive commission rate for professional real estate services
  • Initial property appraisal - will recommend any items to be repaired or updated prior to putting your home on the market
  • Realistic real estate advice - will give an honest and accurate value of your home by preparing a “Competitive Market Analysis” (factors/criteria such as recent sales of similar homes, expired listings, current listings, location, condition, upgrades and inclusions, availability and market conditions) - all these will help indicate what buyers are willing to pay for your property and at what price you should list at to be competitive
  • Upon deciding to sell your home with Chris Brown, his “smart marketing program” is immediately put into action
  • Your property will receive high marketing and advertising exposure:
    • Install property lawn signage “for sale”, and directionals if required
    • Prepare a strategic, high quality information package of feature sheets for your property complete with colour photographs
    • Your home is introduced, with Internet exposure to a global market of purchasers and a network of other real estate agents:
      • Multiple Listing Service (MLS) www.ottawarealestate.org and www.mls.ca - within 24 hours of listing, your home will be on-line and available to approximately 2,000 other agents in the Ottawa area, as well as people searching the real estate board database
      • Featured listing on Chris’ web site www.ChrisBrown.ca
      • Featured listing on the RE/MAX website www.remaxOttawa.com
    • Featured print advertising and promotion in various mediums as required (Ottawa Citizen, community newspapers, The Real Estate Book, Real Estate Guide, etc.)
  • Aggressive and extensive networking with other agents
  • Showings - to sell your home, people will need to see it in person. A lockbox will be installed at your home. This allows for easy, yet secure access by other real estate agents. A professional realtor will always accompany pre-screened buyers through your home.
  • Open houses (if appropriate). A very small number of homes are sold by open houses. With the Internet, the majority of exposure comes through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).
  • Feedback to Chris is of vital importance in selling your home. This includes comments about your home, from both other agents and potential purchasers.

  • Keep you informed with progress of your transaction (monitor all conditions) up to closing (ensure all documents are forwarded to your lawyer, financial institution, etc.)
  • Chris will keep in touch with you after the sale - you’ll be added to Chris’ mailing list and will receive a yearly calendar, market information, periodic real estate updates, newsletters, etc.
