Selling With BOWES

TIP #1 – HOME SELLING PROCESS

BOWES Real Estate Real Living will help you with every step of your sale - from preparing your home to closing the sale.

As you probably know, you're not the only one who's selling a home in your community. But did you know that thousands of people join you each week? With those kinds of numbers, it's easy to see that competition is pretty fierce. So, the better prepared you are, the better your experience will be, and the better (and faster) outcome you can expect.

Once you've decided to sell, you'll be thinking about a whole host of details, like how to get your home ready for sale, when to put it on the market, and how much to ask for it. A BOWES Real Estate Real Living agent can help you with all that and more.

TIP #2 – LISTING YOUR HOME

Listing your home with the right real estate real estate firm is the most important decision you will make.

By choosing to list with BOWES, you are guaranteed to receive our personal written 360 Service Pledge. We are always available to meet your needs. We promise to provide you with valuable programs and special services to relieve you of some of the burden and stress associated with selling your home.

TIP #3 – WHAT IS YOUR HOME WORTH?

We can provide you with an analysis of the current value of your home.

Comparative market analysis is an essential part of every real estate agent's job. It is used to determine the value of a property through comparison to similar property transactions located within a certain radius. A CMA will accurately establish a sale price. It will also guide buyers in deciding on a fair offer. As an agent, you know that conducting a thorough and professional CMA is critical to minimizing time on the market as well as ensuring that your clients receive or make an offer that is fair and reasonable.

TIP #4 – AVERAGE ARLINGTON HOME PRICES

View a Sales Comparisons Chart for the town of Arlington, MA, including single-family homes, condominiums, and multi-family homes. We provide information over the past decade about the number of homes sold, the average prices, and number of days on the market. This information can teach you about the Arlington market to help you make informed decisions during the selling process.

TIP #5 – SELLER AGENCY

A seller's agent represent you, the home seller, during the selling process. If you are selling a home, a BOWES Real Estate Real Living sales professional will commit to you with our 360 Service Pledge that we will exclusively represent your interest only throughout the selling process.

A sellers agent will provide you with advice about the entire process, knowledge and experience, floor plans, photos and staging, individualized marketing, and many other services at your convenience.

TIP #6 – 360 SERVICE PLEDGE

How would your real estate experience improve if you had a skilled professional guiding and advising you every step of the way?

All too often, customer service programs are created in cushy conference rooms, far removed from the people for whom the programs are designed. Those efforts often miss the mark because they aren't drawn from the group that matters most: the customers. But with Premier Service, our comprehensive business philosophy, we've gone right to the source. You've told us that buying and selling a home can be stressful, time-consuming and sometimes overwhelming. We want to change that. The Premier Service pledge of service excellence means that BOWES Real Estate's professional team of Sales Representatives assume three important roles:

  • With specialized knowledge and extensive training, BOWES Real Estate Sales Representatives will help you navigate your home buying and selling process. We will listen to your goals, and recommend ways to help you achieve them.
  • The real estate process requires negotiation of complex issues; we are committed to working in your best interests. We will help you secure the best possible price, with the most favorable terms, in the shortest period of time.
  • We will work to ensure your purchase or sale stays on track and on time. You will receive outstanding customer service, our professional expertise, and be offered other services that can help enhance your result - far beyond the transaction itself.

As trusted advisors, skilled negotiators and expert facilitators, our Sales Representatives will commit to quality service - in writing. Since we know that a smooth process is based on trust, the Premier Service pledge assures delivery on our promise to provide extraordinary customer care. Both the Sales Associate and you, the client, sign an agreement to make this unique relationship official. We want you to understand the process in full, from beginning to end, and stay in regular contact so you are informed at every step. Our sales team can also recommend ancillary home services that will offer clear, added value. And then, we want to know how we measure up. The Premier Service program was created with your input. Our customer satisfaction surveys, provided to you upon transaction close, help us continually refine our customer focus and maintain high standards. Over time, all our customers will be given the chance to give input to help make us the best that we can be. You deserve a knowledgeable advocate in the real estate process, and Premier Service is designed to do just that. Because it's about commitment: By partnering with you, listening to your needs and communicating clearly, your home sale or purchase will become exactly what it should be.
