1. Provide support in the process of selling your home.
Gone are the days when selling a home meant putting an ad in the paper and sticking a sign in the yard. Today, selling a home means using the Internet, social media and an integrated marketing plan. To assure the very best outcome, you want to partner with a professional who has expertise in pricing, marketing, and negotiation. That’s why you want to choose Allen Tate, the top real estate company in the Carolinas. We will guide you through the process of selling your home and we’ll provide the insights and experience you’ll need to get top dollar for your home.
2. Offer the best to the clients.
We not only have the largest real estate sales force in the Carolinas, we also have the most professional, highly trained real estate agents anywhere. We invest in our agents by offering technology, marketing, and ongoing professional development so they can offer the very best to their clients. Our agents take pride in making a positive difference in the lives of so many families across the Carolinas.
3. Determine the max value you can sell your home.
What is Your Home Worth? Perhaps the most important step in selling a home is setting the right price. Many factors go into determining the price for your home – among them the condition of your home, location and the selling price of comparable properties in your area. Before you put your home on the market, your Allen Tate agent will provide a free pre-market consultation and a Competitive Market Analysis (CMA). Your real estate agent will recommend the price, keeping in mind that the price must be in line with the price of comparable properties and realistic enough to encourage buyers to make a purchase offer. We offer the CMA at no cost or obligation.
4. Help set the home in a move-in condition.
Your Allen Tate agent may suggest simple improvements that can give your home a competitive edge, help your home sell quickly and help you get the most for your home. We have the experience to know what changes and improvements can make a difference to potential buyers. We know that a memorable, uncluttered home in good condition is a major draw in today’s marketplace. Remember that the condition of your home is a variable over which you have control. Put yourself in a buyer’s shoes – most buyers want a home in move-in condition.
5. Get your house on the internet.

21. Decide the offer that works for you.
A buyer who is interested in your home will make an offer to your agent through his own agent. The offer may not be what you expect but you can reject, counter or accept any offer that is presented. With your Allen Tate agent, you will decide if the offer will work for you. Your agent is your advocate in this process and will negotiate for you. You can count on your agent to protect your interests and offer expertise.

Your agent will review all contracts and explain them before you sign. Once an offer is accepted, your agent will lead you through the process, from signing the contract to the official transfer of ownership to the buyer.
