Answers to Our Most Frequently Asked Questions
How many homes do you sell?
Why it matters: The average agent in our market sells only two homes per year. The top producers are most often full-time, skilled professionals with well-established systems behind their business.
Daan De Raedt x PCO: Last year we sold 164 homes. This is our personal production. Property Collective as a company sold many more.
What are you going to do differently to sell my home?
Why it matters: Listing your home in MLS and putting a sign in your yard is not marketing. You deserve a custom strategy tailored specifically to your property and your goals.
Daan De Raedt x PCO: Our methods of presenting, pricing and marketing a property help our clients sell their homes with ease.
Our value propositions for sellers include:
In-house staging and design services.
Proactive prospecting by professionally trained, full-time salespeople.
Elevated marketing materials including social media and professionally run Facebook ads.
Dedicated buyer agent to capture and convert leads.
Full-time, in house transaction management to give you world-class service every step of the way.
How long will the selling process take and how much will I make?
Why it matters: Days on Market = How fast an agent is able to produce an acceptable offer and sell a home. List vs. Sold Price Ratio = How strong your agent is at negotiating when an offer comes in. The higher this ratio, the better.
Daan De Raedt x PCO: We sell more homes faster, for more money. On average, our listings sell in 13 days for 100.9% of their list prices.
Why are other agents telling us they can sell our house for more?
Why it matters: Pricing a home can be confusing. You deserve to work with an agent who will tell you the truth, not just tell you what you want to hear to get your listing.
Daan De Raedt x PCO: We’re in the business of selling homes, not just listing them. If we overprice your home and it sits, no one is happy. If we price it right, you’ll receive an acceptable
offer quickly and maybe even have multiple contracts to choose from. I’d rather put my clients in a position to turn down 10 offers than to never get one.
How will you use social media to market my home?
Why it matters: Anyone can say they do social media or run ads but it’s the strategy and analytics behind these activities that determines their value, reach, and results.
Daan De Raedt x PCO: Property Collective has more Instagram followers than any
independently owned brokerage in our area. Follow us for examples of how we use social media to expertly market our listings: @deraedtteam and @propertycollective.
Do you work individually or are you part of a team?
Why it matters: How can an agent give your listing the full attention it deserves if they are busy juggling transaction paperwork, shopping for staging props and showing properties to buyers?
Daan De Raedt x PCO: When you hire me, you also get the support and expertise
of my world-class team. We have the best professionals in the business in key roles to provide our clients with extraordinary service in every aspect of the sales process. This model allows me to focus 100% of my time and efforts on selling your home.
We have a good friend in the business. Shouldn’t we just list with them?
Why it matters: Selling a home is a significant financial transaction. What’s more important, doing your friend a favor or working with the best possible agent?
Daan De Raedt x PCO: I can appreciate that you have a friend in the business and almost everybody does. It comes down to who you feel is most qualified and will perform the best at the job of selling your home.
What is Property Collective?
Why it matters: While the brand and reputation of the brokerage is important, it’s ultimately the individual agent’s track record and activities that will determine the success of your home sale.
Daan De Raedt x PCO: Property Collective is a full-service residential real estate brokerage based in Great Falls, Virginia. My wife Maura and I co-founded the company in 2018 with our friends and renowned interior designers, Lauren and David Liess.
