Our Smart and Simple Downsizing Method
Step 1: Initial Consultation.
Our Smart and Simple Downsizing Method begins with an in person meeting at your home where we introduce our entire team, walk through your home, take a deep dive into your specific needs and timeline, review our listing process and paperwork, and look at the current state of the market and home pricing strategies.
At the same meeting, we will spend some time discussing your future home, your specific criteria, wants and needs, location and price range. We connect you with a trusted local lender to advise you on mortgage options. We make sure we understand how you plan to fund this move, and to have your financial documents in order for when you find the perfect next home. We walk you through the home buying process and paperwork that will be needed for your next home purchase.
Step 2: Pre-List Planning.
During our in person walk through with you, we’ll create a list of home prep tasks and repairs, we help you schedule the home inspector, contractors, landscapers, stagers and cleaning services, etc.. We help you establish a timeline that is realistic and comfortable for you to complete all pre-list preparations.
Step 3: Presenting Your Home.
We’ll schedule and oversee the professional photography, and then list your home in the Multiple List Service (MLS). Our social media and print marketing campaigns will be in full force at this point, to get the highest level of exposure for your home. We’ll conduct our Mega Open Houses to allow buyers access to view your home. Our team will manage the showings and conduct weekly check-ins with you to review feedback and ongoing pricing strategies.
Step 4: Offers & Negotiations.
As offers come in, our team will assemble a Multiple Offer Summary Sheet (MOS) for you. Once all offers are in, we’ll schedule an in person or Zoom meeting to go over all of the offers and advise on which we feel is the strongest and best fit for you. If you prefer, we can line up the closing of your current home with the closing of the new home you are purchasing, so that you do not have two mortgage payments..
Step 5: Final Stretch.
After you find your new home, we make sure both your sale and purchase are lined up in the timeframes that work best for you. On your home purchase, we’ll guide you through the entire process including purchasing your title insurance, getting the home inspected, applying for the mortgage, etc. We’ll provide resources for moving companies, packers, trash haulers, donation sites, and cleaning services, etc.
We can schedule closings on the same day, helping you avoid double mortgage payments. We attend the settlements with you, and on closing day you’ll receive a gift of gratitude from our team, and a folder with all of your closing paperwork, and a copy of our trusted vendor list for your future home needs. Congratulations on your new life!
Our stats say it all…
"Our lifestyle has changed, and the current home no longer fits our lifestyle.
We want a more updated open floor plan, and feel we have
outgrown our neighborhood."
“Laurie and her team helped my wife and I get under contract in this very competitive market. With her expertise we were able to create the best offer that was accepted and beat out several other offers to secure our dream home. Her team of professionals guided us through the entire process and everything was smooth and a pleasant experience. We hig…hly recommend Laurie and her team to anyone looking to purchase or sell their home!”Read More ▾
“Great Experience With The Entire Laurie Dau Team. I listed my home in Doylestown, PA and the process was painless and I got the price I wanted!!”
“Zack has been an absolute wonder to work with. He is always available and willing to answer any questions we had. He saw dozens of homes with him before we found one that we purchased. He was never pushy and was happy to show us different homes / neighborhoods and tell us about the area we were moving. Zack has a wealth of knowledge of what to look… in homes for and what to steer clear of. I would recommend him to anyone and have already passed his information to my brother who is looking to come to the area”Read More ▾
“Laurie and her team are rockstars! They get the work done and how! Extremely professional with that much needed personal touch, efficient and intelligent. The team works together and works hard for their clients. Our house sold within few days and the entire process was smooth and easy. I highly recommend them for your real estate needs.”
“My wife and I were immediately very impressed with Laurie. She was the second realtor we had used during our home buying process and the difference between her and the first was night and day. She was never pushy with making a sale, always was ready with answers to our questions, and was great about getting us to new listings ASAP.
After our pur…chase she has stayed in contact by giving us her recommended contractors and holding events for her clients to attend. We would not hesitate to recommend her to someone looking to buy a home in the area”Read More ▾
