5 factors that cause properties not to sell
1. Location. Over history, it's been said the three things to look for in buying a property are (1) Location,
(2) Location, and (3) Location. There are positive and negative factors to almost every location. Let's pretend your property is right next door to a fire station. You need the kind of marketing professional who can sell the benefits of not having to worry about your new home burning down, or perhaps the savings on fire insurance. Seriously, no matter where your property may be located, there is a ready, willing, and able buyer in the marketplace. You just have to be creative and sell the benefits.

2. Condition. Making a good first impression is important in getting a property sold. Painting the front
door and trim, making sure the doorbell works, putting furniture and clothing in storage, and cleaning off counter tops are just a few of the little things we suggest to our customers and clients to make properties more marketable. We would be more than happy to provide you with a Merchandising Review, free of charge. A Merchandising Review is a list of 18 Factors that cause properties to sell. We spend the extra time necessary with every client to ensure that all the little details are taken care of. It's that attention to detail that sets us apart and enables us to get properties sold.

3. Price. How quickly you want to sell has a direct relationship with the price. A very important statistic to
consider in order to properly price your property, is the percentage of selling price compared to the listing price. This gives you a realistic guideline as to what's really happening in the marketplace. It may not be what you want to hear. However, for an honest price analysis of your property, call us and we will share with you the price we honestly expect you to receive in today's real estate market.

4. Terms. Are you flexible as to possession dates? Many times serious buyers who are relocating to an
area only look at those properties which are available for immediate possession. Being willing to assist the buyer with financing? Sometimes a seller who is willing to assist with financing will help a property to sell. Are you buying another property? If you are willing to consider trading part or all of your equity for another property, makes your property more attractive in the marketplace. Call us directly for a complete analysis of all the terms you could offer to make your property more marketable.

5. The Agent and Company You Select. We pride ourselves on selling properties which other
agents couldn't sell. We understand the frustrations involved when sellers are not able to accomplish their real estate objectives. If you're serious about selling and not just listing your property, call us today. We will give you an honest evaluation of what it is going to take to get your property sold. We will share with you our proven marketing systems which have enabled us to help so many sellers accomplish their real estate objectives!

What type of real estate agent are you looking for to represent you in the sale of your home?
MB Home Sales 215-961-3630

The real estate industry is undergoing a dramatic shift in the way it operates in order to serve its clients better. You see, most real estate agents work all by themselves, trying to chase every detail, and field every request, of what is actually quite a complex and involved process. As a result, most agents complete less than 3 home sales a year Your Needs Must Come First While this is inefficient for the agent, it’s also not beneficial for you, the home seller. You see, selling so few homes a year, makes it difficult for most agents to afford the level and quality of marketing required to properly present your home to prospective buyers. You Inspired Us to Create an Entirely Different System When we started our partnership, MB Home Sales, in 2006, We studied the market to find out what customers really wanted (most want the same thing: they want to sell their home for the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time). Looking at the way most real estate agents operated, we realized that this would be very difficult to achieve every time for every customer and that if we were going to provide our clients with consistently superior and predictable service, we would have to operate in a completely different way from the average agent. People Become Experts When They Specialize You don’t have to look very far to find a model for our real estate system, and yet most real estate agents have overlooked the obvious. Think about some of the other service industries that take care of important needs in your life. A hospital, for example, is made up of a whole team of professionals who work together to solve your health care needs. While the doctor provides the expert diagnosis and care, she or he doesn’t prep the patients, to answer the phones or take the x-rays. There are nurses and receptionists and technicians to take care of these other important details, freeing your doctor to focus on getting you as healthy as you can be in the shortest amount of time. In fact, most other businesses have operated this way for years. And when people are allowed to specialize in this manner, they tend to become experts at what they do. Clearly this kind of specialization leads to better service, but how many of you can truly say your last real estate agent handled your home sale with this kind of professional support and expertise?

MB Home Sales 215-961-3630

Our Team Could Put More Money in Your Pocket Let’s take a look at precisely how our Team operates. For example: -Our Client Care Manager ensures your home receives consistent and breakthrough exposure to prospective buyers, gathers feedback from buyers who have been shown your home, and communicates this information to you on a regular basis, as well as monitors your home’s Activity -Our Director of First Impressions handles the Phones, and greeting of our clients. -Our Buyer Specialists handle all the details of the buying process…from mortgage prequalification to finding the right home to negotiate the sale -Our MCA handles all deposits ensuring proper regulations and safety of all money -Our Transaction Manager ensures that all the sales contract details are taken care of so that you have a hassle-free, smooth settlement We know this system works because of the superior service we’ve been able to provide customers just like you. Not All Teams Are Created Equal Many real estate brokers call themselves a team because they have an assistant working for them, but as you can see, unless they’re operating in exactly the way I’ve described, they’re not really operating as a true team at all. The fact of the matter is that agents with an assistant are still doing most parts of the job all by themselves. It’s easy to see why my team system provides you much better results. Ken, Melanie and MB Home Sales Because our various departments take care of all the necessary, time-consuming details, we’re free to create even better systems and programs to help you sell your home fast and for the most amount of money. Innovative programs such an inside tour of your home on the Internet, and Direct Response Marketing. It also allows us to contact 200 new prospects every week – to find buyers for your listing!

Melanie and Ken IN THE NEWS & ON THE AIR
Realtors launch "Hop Off the Fence"
Potential home buyers – it’s time to “Hop Off the Fence in Bucks.” That’s the theme for the Bucks County Association of Realtors’ new campaign to let homeowners and first-time buyers know that the local market situation now presents a great time to buy your first home or make a move up. The BCAR launched its program at a media event today at the Northampton County Club, attended by approximately 75 brokers and members of the media. Melanie Banks, Realtors with Keller Willams’ office in Newtown and chairperson of the BCAR public relations committee, came up with the idea for the campaign. She felt that the gloom and doom national housing statistics didn’t reflect the situation here in Bucks County and were adversely affecting her career. She decided to “step it up,” she said. Jane Forth, at the BCAR office and other Realtors formed a Positive Information Task Force to research ways to develop the initiative. They found that Realtors in Memphis, Tenn., had developed the “Hop off the Fence” program. The Memphis group invited the BCAR to use their initiative.

Why use any other Realtor? When you can use the Realtors directly responsible for the Bucks County Association Of Realtors “Hop Off The Fence In Bucks” public awareness campaign.

Common objections from sellers and how Ken and Melanie handle them:
1. I only want to give you a 90 day listing. I can appreciate that, especially if you have been listed before with a sub-par real estate agent. It generally takes 3-4 months on average in this market to get a home sold. Do you want to list your home for sale at 10-20% below fair market value – to guarantee an immediate sale within 30days? And…we do have an EASY EXIT listing agreement. All you have to do is tell us you are not happy with what we are doing and you can fire us at no cost to you. 2. We were thinking about another company. We think you realize a company doesn’t sell a house…it’s the individual agent’s activities. Plus we will advertise your home for sale on every major Real estate Companies website. 3. We’ll save the commission by selling it ourselves. We agree, you can save the commission by selling it yourself. Are you aware that today over 37,142 homes are for sale…and that monthly only 10% actually sold? And what’s worse is the fact that only 2% of all For Sale By Owners sell themselves – especially in this market. Can you afford to have only a 2% chance of selling your home? 4. Let’s list high, we can always come down later. Are you aware that less than 3% of today’s buyers will even look at a property that is overpriced? 17% of today’s buyers will look at properties that are priced fairly, and 80% of the buyers are looking for properties that are priced 5-10% below fair market value. We can’t afford to lose 80% of today’s potential buyers! 5. Another agent said they could get me more money. That agent will list your property – at the high price – and assume they can take the listing now, and then start beating you up on the price week after week! They’re afraid to tell you the truth upfront. We’re not afraid to tell you the truth. 6. You haven’t sold many homes in my area. The obvious reason you’ll chose us now to sell your home is because we can expose your property to potential buyers from all over the area! Do you realize how important that kind of exposure is? 7. The other agent said they would cut their commission. That makes me nervous! If other agents don’t have the courage to stand up to you regarding their own worth, how strong could they possibly be defending you and the price set on your home? If they give in now, they’ll give in later when the negotiations begin. You can’t afford to leave any money on the table with a mediocre agent handling the sale. Any other questions, please feel free to ask when we meet!
