For Sellers

As experienced, seasoned professionals, we understand that your home is most likely your single most important investment. Knowing this, we have developed in the Grubb Co. the region’s most comprehensive real estate marketing program to effectively sell your home at the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time. We call it Performance Marketing and its success can be seen in the high volume of transactions negotiated on behalf of our satisfied clientele.

Each property we list is carefully analyzed for its unique selling strengths and individuality. Creative marketing materials are then developed that reach target market buyers. Our long and successful experience in our marketplace enables us to see marketing possibilities and to develop real solutions to marketing problems so that your homes sells as quickly and as profitably as possible.

We will carefully research your home with a property profile from the county, and the current comparable sales in your area based on size, location, bedrooms, baths, and quality of construction.

Then we will meet with you to tour your home and make recommendations to enhance your home’s sales appeal. We can refer you to trusted repair and renovation specialists and coordinate their work if you are no longer living at the property. And we prepare you for what to expect while your home is being marketed.

In the pre-market stage repairs may need to be made, a distinctive property brochure will be designed, sketches and pictures will be taken and creative staging of your home may be recommended. We will prepare a strategic Calendar of Commitment showing the key steps in the sales process, the estimate time to accomplish and necessary actions to be taken.
