Don't Let Uncertainty Hold You Back.

Thinking of Selling Your Home in Vermont?

Are you hesitating to put your home on the market because you're unsure if you'll find the right buyer, or if your home will sell for its full value? This fear is more common than you might think, especially in a market as dynamic as Vermont's. Many homeowners worry that their property will either sit unsold for months or sell for less than it's worth, potentially jeopardizing their next move.

It’s natural to feel anxious about stepping into the competitive real estate market. These fears can prevent even the most determined homeowners from moving forward. The longer you wait, the more you risk missing out on favorable market conditions, which can change rapidly.

Pricing your home to sell at the highest feasible price requires a clear, proven marketing strategy. And as your Real Estate Accelerator, Julie is here to guide you through the critical steps of marketing your property so that it gets maximum exposure, is staged appealingly, and is photographed to stand out from the competition.

To determine the right asking price for your home, we’ll analyze its condition, compare it to similar homes sold, and determine how the current market might affect pricing.

Staging: Your Secret Weapon

Exposure: Where and How We Market Your Home

 At Catalyst Realty Collaborative, we understand that maximizing exposure is crucial to selling your property quickly and at the best possible price. Unlike many realtors, we go beyond the basics by actively marketing your listing to the entire salesforce of the industry. This includes strategic email blasts and personalized calls to area agents to ensure your property gets noticed. Additionally, we leverage the power of social media by listing your home on various platforms. Julie's creative Reels, stories, and YouTube videos are designed to generate maximum visibility, create a buzz of interest, and attract multiple offers. By listing with Julie and Catalyst Realty Collaborative, you gain access to her extensive networks and online communities, further increasing the number of potential buyers who see your home.  

Staging: Your Secret Weapon

Good staging can make or break your home sale – it’s the difference between a home that languishes on the market for months, versus a home that sells in just a few days. Julie has an eye for interior design and will suggest simple and easy home improvements to help your home appeal to the most amount of buyers. When it comes time to photograph the property, Julie has a whole storage unit of furnishings to make your home inviting and attractive to prospective buyers.

In addition to strategic staging, these updates can dramatically increase the value of your home too:

  • PAINT: Pick a neutral palette – think grays or beige with crisp accents.

  • FlOORING: A consistent material & style is the most desirable; hardwoods are preferred. 

  • ​KITCHEN UPDATES: Neutral colors, Shaker style and classic, modern cabinetry, stone countertops, and updated hardware will resonate with buyers.

  • SPACE: Buyers look for open concepts with rooms that flow invitingly from the kitchen/main gathering space. 

  • ​LIGHTING: Clean, accessible windows, updated overhead light fixtures, & minimal dark paint are key.

  • ​CONDITION: Make sure all windows, doors, floors, and paint are in good and clean condition.

Photography: Pictures Speak a 1000 Words

First impressions are critical. The first thing prospective buyers look for is a listing’s images. If the photos aren’t great, your home won’t be on their “must-see” list. 

Great photography requires composition, wide angles, good lighting, and more. If the home is beautifully staged but the photos are grainy, dark, or taken from odd angles, you risk less interest from potential buyers, more time on the market, and selling below your asking price.

DON'T TAKE MY WORD FOR IT

Working with Julie was an absolute delight! From the moment we met, her warmth and professionalism put us at ease. Her assistant April was very attentive and was also a pleasure to work with. They went above and beyond to showcase the best features of our property and provided valuable advice every step of the way. Their dedication and attention to detail resulted in a quick sale at a great price. They listened to our needs and guided us through every step of the process with patience and care. Their expertise and dedication ensured that we found the right team to sell our home. We couldn't be happier with the exceptional service provided by Ridgeline and would highly recommend them to anyone in search of selling or buying.

My parents were certain they would FSBO their home because in their experience "realtors do not really do anything except take a cut". I suggested that they take advantage of Julie's free consultation and market analysis. They were so glad they did and used Julie for the sale of their home. Julie worked with them before the sale to get their home ready for a maximum sale value and to appeal to buyers in their neighborhood. When it was time to list the property, Julie helped with staging the home and all of the marketing that is required. Julie found them a perfect buyer within days. They netted more after the sale with Julie, even after paying commissions and home improvement costs, then they would have if they had just sold on their own. My parents are now raving fans of Julie, and so am I.

Julie was our realtor helping us sell our family home to downsize into a condo in Hinesburg and we couldn't be happier. She was able to get us multiple offers over asking price and make the transition happen seamlessly. She staged our home and had wonderful photography that really captured the buyer's attention. She was spot on with her pricing strategy and marketing. If you are looking for a realtor to care for you in your sell,buy journey, reach out to Julie!
