SHOWCASE LISTINGS - What is the Showcase Listing?
Some of the MLS packages come with 1, pic or 8 pics and some include the max number of pics on the MLS. Showcase listing is only included with a few of the packages. It’s certainly understandable why the majority of the pictures SELLERS send us are of their favorite rooms. However, people will wonder what’s wrong with the rest of the house if there are no or too few photos of the interior/exterior. Think about it from your own perspective. I personally recently bought a home and I spent my weeknights and weekends on Realtor.com and if there weren’t good photos of the inside of the homes then they went to the bottom of the list. Time was too precious to waste and without having photos to give me a good idea as to whether the home would meet my needs, I had to narrow my selection process to the ones that provided me with the best overall picture of what the home had to offer.
If your package did not include the Showcase listing - consider this one upgrade. Get the MAX # of pictures on your MLS Listing. The Showcase upgrade also ensures your home has priority billing when someone does a search on most websites. The homes with multiple photos always come up first! I am a true believer in walking away with the maximum amount of money in your pocket from the sale of your home and not wanting to spend more than is necessary to accomplish that goal. Having personal success with fsbo reinforced that belief for me. However, I also understand wanting the maximum amount of exposure when trying to sell your home especially if time is critical. This is all the more reason you should take that exposure to the next level and help alleviate the guesswork for your potential buyers. When a home has so much to offer as yours does, let the pictures speak volumes. The narrative is a nice summary, but a picture truly does speak a thousand words. Just something to think about. We’re here to help you be successful in selling your home as quickly and effortlessly as possible. Experience has helped formulate the nuggets of advice we offer in order to help our customers not only be successful in selling their home, but also to help make it a less stressful event.

ST. JOSEPH STATUES
According to a somewhat urban legend, St. Joseph Can Help You Sell Your Home! It is said that if a person takes a small statue of St. Joseph and buries it upside-down, facing the street and near the for sale sign, that a much faster sales transaction will occur. Who says this? Well, thousands of homeowners and real estate agents have utilized their statues as a marketing aide. The phenomena have been publicized in the Washington Post, New York Times and The Lincoln Journal-Star, to name a few. The St. Joseph Kit comes complete with a 3 1/2" plastic figurine, a special prayer to read while burying the statue and a set of instructions! ORDER NOW

CLOSING SERVICE - A Better Way to Settle is Heading Your Way
Whether you're buying, selling or refinancing, we know what you're going through on closing day - the last-minute packing and loading, the cleaning up and clearing out. No matter how organized you are, things can become chaotic. Who needs the additional stress of sitting in traffic to make a trip across town to a title company? Signing the settlement papers should be the simplest and most relaxed part of the move. And now it can be - when SettlementsonSite brings it to you. During the walk-through, sellers, buyers and agents are often in the same place at the same time. It just makes sense to bring in a closing rep, while you're on site, to wrap everything up. You can close on your property then and there and still pay less than you would in a title office. (Only available in certain areas of Virginia)
