When you decide to sell your home from out of state you need an agent who can be flexible to your schedule since you are likely in a different time zone. While most details can be arranged through email, we always like to “meet”our clients, so a late night or early morning call might be the only way to make that happen. The SellPDX team makes sure all our clients hear from us on a weekly basis and we respond to all calls and emails. Having a great team means we can provide great service 24 – 7.
If you have a friend or family member in town we’ll coordinate with them on your behalf to preview the house and get it ready for the market. If you don’t have a local contact the SellPDX team can handle everything once we have a signed listing contract and a key to the house.
It’s important to make sure when you choose a real estate agent that they can be your point person locally to handle all of the tasks where someone will need access to the property.
We will coordinate access to preview the house for a Market Analysis, meet with vendors to get the home ready if repairs are needed, meet with a professional photographer and videographer, and arrange access for prospective buyers and their agents and inspectors.
If your home or condo is rented out we will coordinate with your tenants and property manager to get the property ready, and for all the times we’ll need access during the marketing and closing process. Working with tenants can be tricky and this is another area you’ll want to ensure your agent has experience.
