What does it mean to be A Holistic Realtor?

What does it mean to be holistic?
It’s about recognizing the interconnected aspects of a person or situation. A holistic agent is someone who guides their clients through the real estate experience while taking the well-being of the whole person into account. The goal in holistic real estate is to go through what can be a very stressful process with special care for the physical, mental, and emotional health of all concerned. Through this awareness, it is possible to find joy and greater health in the experience.

I help my clients figure out what their best life looks like, I take my time to understand my client’s goals which helps me more clearly understand my client’s vision. I believe you can’t serve your client well if you focus only on selling a home in their price range. It has to be about more: Do they want a sign on the property, scheduling visits that work with their schedule, do they want open houses, and do they need a replacement property before they sell.

Holistic medicine is known for taking the traditional use of intellect, facts, and figures, and incorporating other elements of life into the process, Holistic real estate does the same thing. I still run comparative marketing analyses, urges clients to have inspections, keeps up on legal updates, does due diligence, and encourages buyers or sellers to do their tasks. “We are making the most of our mind’s potential by coupling the wisdom of our body and acknowledging the unknown (the spirit or soul).

What do clients think of you?
My clients are better suited to answer this for you. Here’s what some of them have said.

My husband and I been working with Will for a couple of months now and we absolutely love him. We are so blessed to have him guiding us through out the purchase of our very first home. If you are looking for an agent contact Will. He is the BEST!!!

Jeff. C
Highly recommended. Worked with Will for a little over a year. He’s very patient and does not force you into making an offer on a home that you don’t necessarily like just to make a quick buck. I was very picky on what I was looking for and Will was always patient. Thanks for all of your help Will.

4 Tips To Get That Home Sold ASAP

download

When homeowners ask how to get a home sold, there is typically more to the question. For instance, some really want to know how to get it sold quickly, some are wondering how to sell a home to get more money out of it while others have a home languishing on the market and just want to know how to get the thing sold.

There’s no mystery to getting a home sold; it all starts with basic real estate principles and practices.

Timing

It’s important to know the current trends in your local real estate market before putting your home up for sale. Is it a buyer’s market – where there are more homes available than buyers? Or is it a seller’s market, with few homes available and lots of buyers?

Your local newspaper most likely covers your regional real estate market but this is also information you can obtain by asking your real estate agent.

This information is important for several reasons:

• If you can afford to wait to sell your home, the current market may be the deciding factor as to whether you sell it now or wait.

• It helps you price your home appropriately.

• It gives you an idea of what to expect during the time the home is on the market.
Another aspect of timing the sale of your home is the season. Home sales are seasonal and the ideal time to sell the home is in spring. This doesn’t mean, however, that homes don’t sell at other times during the year, even in the dead of winter.
In fact, although fewer homes are listed and sold in winter than in spring, the likelihood that you’ll sell your home is higher in the former than in the latter.

Price

The number one reason a home sits on the market and doesn’t sell is price. To make matters worse, sellers of overpriced homes typically reject initial offers because they think they are too low, when, in reality, they are most likely close to the market value of the home.

In a buyer’s market, it’s even more important to price your home competitively. If you choose the right real estate agent, your list price should be very close to the home’s true market value. It’s up to you, then, to either lower it a bit to create more interest or to overprice the home and risk eventually having to drop the price.

Condition

It almost sounds trite in today’s real estate market to mention that a home needs to be cleaned and decluttered before putting it on the market. While the advice is common, it’s still very good. A clean home with maximum curb appeal will put your house above the competition.

Make repairs to anything that obviously needs it. This means dripping faucets, loose banisters, cracked windows – anything that a buyer will notice. These little things make it appear that the home hasn’t been maintained – something no buyer wants to take on.

We can discuss larger repairs and whether or not they should be tackled.

Realtor

Your Realtor can make or break the deal. Keep that in mind when determining who to hire to assist you in the sale of your home. This is not the time to hire that friend of a friend or your Aunt Martha.

Choose your agent carefully and then work as a team, following up with one another frequently throughout the process.

Getting your home sold requires, overall, patience. Take your time with each step in the process, ensuring that nothing falls through the cracks. Listen to the advice of your real estate agent and you’ll soon be on your way to the next phase of your life.
