We have recently expanded our service menu to include a realty division. It was a natural and planned expansion, the final piece of our business model. So often we would be contacted by someone who was planning a move but still did not have a realtor or even know who to call. We are transferring the confidence our clients already accord Crowning Touch, when it comes to moving and selling their estate items, to Charlie Hanks, a broker with 32 years of experience. Charlie has joined our team and is poised to provide the same exemplary attention to service that has distinguished every dimension of Crowning Touch.
Experience the difference!
We specialize in selling homes AS IS.
What We Do For You
WHAT WE DO…
When a client requests our real estate services, we begin with an analysis of their property. Our research begins with gathering all the related area statistics known as "comps". These reveal the most recent sales activity on similar homes within the same or similar neighborhoods. We document and evaluate this information and share it with the client.
A visit is made to the property
Then an evaluation is made regarding the condition of the property so it can be priced accordingly . Most homes can be sold "as is". When this is the case we recommend the home be empty and broom-clean. Our moving division can assist with liquidating valuable items through the consignment store or one of our monthly auctions. Unwanted items or items that have no re-sale value can be discarded.
If there are family funds available, sometimes the value of the property can be significantly increased by spending minimal dollars wisely.
Many times homes have not been kept up to current market standards and may require updating to be sold competitively. For example, sometimes worn carpeting can be removed and hardwood floors polished or refinished to increase buyer appeal. Most often, undesirable odors can be eliminated with thorough cleaning and a fresh coat of paint. Overgrown trees and shrubs can be removed to enhance curb appeal. If making improvements is not feasible, an adjustment can be made to the selling price to include an allowance for the new owner to make the necessary improvements themselves.
Access to the property is a must
To insure that keys are not passed around or allowed to fall into the wrong hands we recommend that we install a combination lockbox on the property. This is a small, safe-type apparatus that is secured to the home that only allows access for authorized persons providing estimates or repairs. We only use licensed and insured contractors that we are familiar with and the can guarantee the quality of their work.
Our coed cleaning teams can prepare the residence for sale, even taking items to the landfill if necessary. When the house is ready to be shown we prepare a complete picture slide show to be used in the local real estate multiple listing service. A written narrative is prepared and list price determined for marketing. Every 30 days, activity is evaluated. Comments from potential buyers and real estate professionals are collected and shared. Our goal is to meet your goal and have the property sold within the timeframe necessary to meet your needs.
Your job is to get settled or relocated to your new home and leave everything else to us
We will coordinate agent/buyer showings, negotiate all offers, facilitate purchase contracts, secure financing as needed, and insure that all necessary paperwork is routed to the settlement company. We will deliver your proceeds check to you after settlement.
We handle all of the required inspections as necessary to satisfy any and all lender requirements such as home inspections, termite inspections, water, sewer, septic inspections or well water tests. We obtain estimates from contractors, and, with your approval, oversee any and all necessary repairs.
