Abode1, a NextGen full-service virtual real estate company founded by Real Estate Broker and Developer Marcelo Fernandes, has released a new guide designed to assist Miami-Dade homeowners who opt to sell their homes on their own. Entitled, 7 Secrets Every Seller Must Know Before Selling Their Home, the free guide walks homeowners step by step through the process, from listing to closing.
Vital topics in the guide include:
- Setting the Right Price for Your Home, Based on a CMA (Competitive Market Analysis)
- Improving Your Property’s Appearance to Attract Your Ideal Buyers
- Marketing on the MLS for Maximum Exposure
- Maintaining a Positive Mindset
- Understanding Your Buyers’ Motivations
“We understand the appeal of selling your home without a realtor because it saves the homeowner a significant amount of money,” Fernandes explains. “However, homeowners who sell their homes on their own also take a huge risk because they don’t know what they don’t know. We created this guide to help them attract qualified buyers, get the best market rate price, and protect their legal rights.
“If after they read the guide, they realize they need more assistance, for a one-percent fee, Abode1 provides all the professional support to list, show, and sell their house for its fair market value. We connect buyers directly to sellers – instead of referring them to a listing agent that is usually not the listing agent but a realtor that pays the search engine provider for a lead. We employ the MLS, along with state-of-the-art efficiencies in printing, video, photography, and online solutions. For a fraction of the cost of traditional real estate services, Abode1 gives sellers all the advantages required to sell their homes while maintaining high-quality standards. As experienced realtor-brokers in Miami-Dade since 1980, it’s exciting for us to leverage modern technology to create a fresh and effective approach toward selling your home.”
Igniting the power of technology
The Multiple Listing Services was created in the 1800s. It was designed by realtors to help realtors gather and share information about properties.
Today, the MLS listing empowers every online real estate platform in the United States. From independent agents to search giants such as Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com, every real estate website depends on the MLS to gather and share information. Billions of marketing dollars are spent in this industry to promote all listings found on the MLS. This industry focuses on maximizing technology to empower the average home buyer to shop online and successfully find their home. Abode1 now connects buyers directly to sellers instead of referring them to an agent that most of the time is not even the listing agent but rather an agent that is paying the search engine provider for a lead.
The process is bypassing traditional realtor services. This is where Abode1 comes in. Using the MLS and new efficiencies in printing, video, photography, and online solutions, we can provide professional real estate services at a fraction of the cost without sacrificing quality.
Good things happen when technology is used to service customers because opportunities arise, efficiencies get created, and solutions become a reality. Buyers are searching online without realtors, so we invite you to sell your home directly. Our professional support is all-inclusive for a 1% fee, and we have all the tools you need.
