The Red Door Team Seller Services
How can the The Red Door Team help you with the sale of YOUR home?
The Red Door Team has an unparalleled history with successful home sales in Snohomish & King County. In 2016 the majority of our listings sold in 45 days or less with multiple offers. Here are some of the reasons why.
Leveraged Listings - A Team Approach
The Red Door Team is a 9 person real estate team, uniquely structured to leverage our sellers in a complicated market. With our team, you receive 9 professionals to help assure a smooth and stress-free transaction.
The Red Door Team is Committed to working with you to sell your home...
For The Highest Possible Price
It is hard to prove that our listings sell for more than they might sell elsewhere on the market. The closest we've come to that sort of measurement is in that we've been responsible for more than 5 sales that were marketed for over a year by another firm, and that we placed back on the market for a HIGHER PRICE and then successfully sold.
In The Shortest Amount of Time
The ability to advise on market timing is our competitive advantage. Our marketing program is consistent and predictable giving us a number of reliable metrics that can help us identify how long it will take each listing to sell. The majority of the homes we sold in 2014 sold for 45 days or less, as compared to the market average of over 100.
With The Least Hassle
We want your biggest concern during the home sale process to be that you were expecting the process to be harder. The Red Door Team strives to provide first class customer service, and a "let us handle that for you" approach to the sale. We've refined our process so precisely - nothing falls through the cracks.
Visually Stand Out Amongst The Competition
Professional Photography is essential to a successful home sale. Buyers find the home they purchase primarily by looking on the Internet and by asking real estate agents.
An excellent agent with a terrific Internet marketing program is your best path to a sale.
We include professional real estate photography with every listing, as part of our full service listing fee. Our photographers are the best in the business. Their equipment (including wide angle lenses, a 30 foot raised photography lift, and professional lighting) provides for stunning photos every time. If you've searched for homes in the market lately, you've likely noted that many properties are photographed with digital cameras or even smart phones, and the result is obvious. We want our properties to stand out and impress potential buyers at first glance, and draw people in to want to see more. A buyer will often see hundreds of home photos before they will ever set foot in a property, so we need our "first showing" of your home to be as impressive as possible.
Facebook Sneak Previews
In the first 24 hours of your listing going live in the MLS, we run a Facebook Ad and can guarantee 5000+ views of your home by people within a 5 mile radius of your home. This creates buyer inquiries and urgency, and can also help us track the traffic and let you know how your listing is stacking up against our other successful home sales.
Unparalleled Internet Presence and Social Media Exposure
Our Listings receive an unparalleled amount of internet exposure. When you list with the Red Door Team, we’ll have access to the Keller Williams Listing System, or KWLS. This proprietary,exclusive system ensures your property is marketed online 24/7 through more than 350 of the most popular search Websites.
Here are just a few of the places you will find our homes online:
All of our listings are on Realtor.com. This pushes buyers to your home before seeing those of your competitors.
Realtor.com is among the top 2 web search engines in the nation, is backed by NAR and feeds from every MLS, and is considered the most reliable search engine when property status is concerned.
Listings feature more photos, lengthier property descriptions, interactive mapping, and custom neighborhood information pages. They have increased exposure as well as differentiation on the Search Results pages and Listing Detail pages, and according to Realtor.com, receive 3x more views than regular listings.
We’ll create a custom website specific to your home. It will have a unique domain name for your street address, and it will be syndicated to more than 20 major property search portals such as Zillow, Trulia, and Homes.com. This link will give us an easy way to spread the word about the home quickly and gives us a unique address to pass out, that will be for a site that doesn't feature any other competitive homes!
All of our listings over $500,000 will be features on the world wide Luxury Homes website.
Your home will also be featured on Zillow, Trulia, Oodle, Houzz, Facebook, HomeDatabase, Google Plus, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn, YouTube, and more. We always challenge our clients to try to find a reputable real estate website that their home is NOT on, and can guarantee we'll get it there.

Enhanced Marketing to Other Agents
Our marketing plan includes several enhanced marketing campaigns to our co-brokering agents.
Brokers Open / Open Houses
Once your homes is LIVE on the MLS, The Red Door Team will host a brokers open and/or open house to draw attention from other cooperating agents in town as well as prospective buyers. This will hopefully condense some of the showing activity into a set time frame (eliminating some of the spontaneous showing requests), but also gives us a chance to get some immediate candid feedback on the home, it's price, and it's competitive qualities when compared to the other homes on the market. We hope to attract folks who might not have noticed the home online or who need to see it in person to realize that it might be a match for one of their clients. As always, the more exposure, the better, and this is just one way to increase the word-of-mouth buzz being generated about your home.
Blast Email Campaign
With 1000+ agents in the Snohomish & King County area all juggling a handful of different clients at any given time, it can be challenging to keep up with every new listing that comes into the market. Within 24 hours of your home being listed, we will create and send a customized email blast to the entire Snohomish & King County Area Association of Realtors. This way, we can highlight the home and announce it to our co-brokering agents, but can also add a bit more detail to them about who might be a good buyer for this home and the type of buyer we think it might be well suited for. We can also utilize this blast to invite agents to the brokers open house or to encourage agents to forward along to their clients, inviting their clients to a public open house, if applicable.
Personal Outreach to Agents with Similar Recent Sales
There is one simple step that most of our competitors never think to take. We’re going to reach out to the agents who have most recently participated in sales in your neighborhood or of similar homes. There is a chance that they may have a leftover buyer for the same area, or that they might have some market insight from their sale that could be useful to ours. It’s our job to keep your property top of mind with cooperating agents.
Professional Print Advertising
Print advertising may not drive real estate sales quite the way it did 20 years ago, but we still believe it to bean important piece of the marketing puzzle.
Just Listed Postcards
Within 10 days of your home being listed in the MLS, your neighborhood will receive a "Just Listed" postcard, appealing to them to help us find your buyer and reminding them that a strong home sale for you is a positive for the whole neighborhood. Your neighbors are often the biggest advocates for the area and may have friends who want to live nearby, so while some of them may just be curious or "nosy", we want them to be as informed about the home as possible.
Reverse Prospecting Postcards
We know that people move-up to homes roughly 30% more expensive than their current home. We will choose 2-3 neighborhoods with a price range 30% below yours, with owners who we think might be appropriate move-up buyers for your home. We will target market via direct mail to those households.
Professionally Designed Brochures
We want to make sure that when a buyer goes home at the end of the day, having toured as many as 10 or 15 homes, that they remember OUR listings clearly and compellingly. We hope that they will walk out of our competitors homes with an MLS sheet in hand, and then out of our listings with a professionally designed and printed glossy 8 page brochure, a home information booklet, and a lasting memory of what they loved about it. We can't guarantee that we will always be a buyers very top choice, but we will be the most memorable!
