Q&A with Orasee

How do you help buyers to find the right properties for them?
When you enlist the help of an expert REALTOR®, you're not just gaining support to buy or sell a house – you're gaining an ally who'll help you make the most out of your home buying venture. REALTORS® can guide you through every step of the process, explain the current market, help navigate complex paperwork and offer invaluable advice. We have an entire team working for you not just one realtor.
How do you make sure buyers get the best price for the property they are interested in?
We make sure that you get the best price by checking the values in the area. We analyze the Comps, or comparables, are regarded as the single-best tool in determining a home's value. They contrast criteria from recently-sold properties in a neighborhood, such as sale price, age of house, size, and square footage. Real estate agents use comps to prepare a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) for their clients. also identifies nearby similar sales of homes and uses that information to help calculate the true value for homes.
What do you do to help market the properties your clients are selling?
We market your home to thousands of buyers We will run ads featuring your house, but not for the reasons you expect. You see, the main job of advertising is not to sell your house directly. Advertising creates phone calls and some of those callers become clients of the agents answering the calls. This builds up a pool of homebuyers looking for property in general, all represented by selling agents. Multiply this by all the agents and companies who also advertise homes, and there is a large pool of homebuyers in the market at any given time, all of whom are represented by selling agents. The agents representing those homebuyers know about your home because it is listed in the Multiple Listing Service, has been on office and broker preview, and because your agent may have also sent flyers or emails to all the local real estate offices or top agents in the marketplace. The agents match up their clients with available homes, one of which may be yours. Then they show the homes to their clients, who eventually make an offer on one. That is how your house gets sold. Ads create a pool of clients, one of which buys your home. Ads do not usually sell your house directly. Real Estate Office Advertising As mentioned previously, advertising your home in newspapers and magazines rarely sells your home directly. More likely than not, the buyer who eventually purchases your home will have called on a totally different house. The same thing happens with buyers who call on your house. They will probably buy something else. You still want to be certain the real estate company selling your house is advertising themselves whether they feature your house or not. The ads generate phone calls and emails to the real estate office, and if those agents viewed your house on the office preview, they will be familiar with it. This is how your property is sold. Or you could be one of the lucky ones, someone calling on your house may actually end up buying it. You should
How do you ensure your sellers get the highest price?
The comparative market analysis is our best tool to determine value. A comparative market analysis (CMA) is a side-by-side comparison of similar homes for sale and recently sold homes in your neighborhood. CMAs are composed of data compiled for comparison purposes by your REALTOR’S® multiple listing service (MLS.)
What do you recommend sellers do to make sure their selling process is smooth?
When conversing with real estate agents, you will often find that when they talk to you about buying real estate, they will refer to your purchase as a "home." Yet if you are selling property, they will often refer to it as a "house." There is a reason for this. Buying real estate is often an emotional decision, but when selling real estate you need to remove emotion from the equation. You need to think of your house as a marketable commodity. Property. Real estate. Your goal is to get others to see it as their potential home, not yours. If you do not consciously make this decision, you can inadvertently create a situation where it takes longer to sell your property. The first step in getting your home ready to sell is to "de-personalize" it. De-personalize the House The reason you want to "de-personalize" your home is because you want buyers to view it as their potential home. When a potential homebuyer sees your family photos hanging on the wall, it puts your own brand on the home and momentarily shatters their illusions about owning the house. Therefore, put away most of your family photos, sports trophies, collectible items, knick-knacks, and souvenirs. Put them in a box - you'll be moving them soon anyway. Rent a storage area for a few months if needed. Do not just put the box in the attic, basement, garage or a closet. Part of preparing a house for sale is to remove "clutter," and that is the next step in preparing your house for sale. Removing Clutter, Though You May Not Think of it as Clutter This is the hardest thing for most people to do because they are emotionally attached to everything in the house. After years of living in the same home, clutter collects in such a way that may not be evident to the homeowner. However, it does affect the way buyers see the home, even if you do not realize it. Clutter collects on shelves, counter tops, drawers, closets, garages, attics, and basements. Take a step back and pretend you are a buyer.
