PRE LISTING - MARKETING
BRE # 01394956
Since becoming a Realtor in 2001, I have had to find a balance between two extremes common to many salespeople.
I was drawn to real estate because it is a “people” business…and I knew that helping people was essential to my career. But the way this industry works seems contradictory to that. It seems that you have to project confidence and knowledge, which is ok, but even more, it seems that you even need a sense of superiority, a huge ego to succeed, since most agents attract business by telling prospects how great they are.
I learned that these were thought to be the qualities of the stereotypical “top-producing” real estate agent, when in actuality, the most successful agents do put customers first.
In fact, they seemed to put almost everyone else first, family, friends, even their competition if that made the situation better for everyone involved. In other words, they became servants and in the truest sense, humbled themselves.
Strange words, you’re probably thinking, from someone who promotes himself as much as I do. I promote myself not to put myself in the limelight, but to remind you that I am here, intend to be for years to come, and am eager to serve you like no other Realtor you will meet.
The following Pre-Marketing Package can never take the place of a personal meeting, but it will give you a chance to know a little more about me, my beliefs, and the step-by-step plan we use to successfully sell each home that we market.
That way, when we do meet, I can place my full concentration on what’s most important to you, to your needs. Together we will determine the highest possible price the current market will bear, and determine who the targeted Buyers for your home may be and develop the marketing strategies to attract them. These targeted Buyers are almost always willing to pay the highest price for your home. I’ll explain this concept and strategy when we meet.
I am looking forward to the opportunity to meet and assist you.
Our goal is to run a profitable business through goal-setting, planning, and hiring well-qualified personnel. We will always provide top quality service to our clients and customers, as well as a total commitment to meet their goals in buying and selling real estate.
We are committed to being totally forthright and honest with our clients in regard to the pricing and marketing of their property. We know they can only achieve their goals with total honesty and truthful information. We are committed to this even if it means losing the listing or sale.
We will maintain a positive attitude in striving to meet our clients’ goals. We realize that our creativity and strategies may be advanced, and not necessarily the “norm”, but we know that we must make that extra effort to help our clients reach their goals.
We use our time each and every day to its fullest potential, always remembering that our clients pay us to work diligently to get their home sold, or find their next home for purchase.
I strive to maintain balance in all aspects of my life. I strive to lead my life through God’s love and direction. My family and I give Him thanks for all we have and the blessings He provides. In addition we always try be available in someone else’s time of need.
I have a strong belief in our services, and am committed to proving to everyone who hires us that they could not have made a better decision for their real estate needs. Thank you for taking a moment to read our Mission Statement.

A professional who is among the market’s most experienced and successful brokers, his work is backed by an aggressive team of knowledgeable professionals tapping unique resources.

MAKE YOUR CHOICE:
“I am a full time professional, fortunate enough to be associated with one of the most technologically advanced real estate companies in the U.S., but I am also and agent who can adapt, make changes and get the job done. You will not find anyone who will work harder, or more professionally to get you the most money for your home.”
Should You Price
Your Home Realistically?
Time: Chances are that your home will sell at its fair market value. Pricing it realistically at the outset simply increases the likelihood for a timely sale with less inconveniences and greater monetary return.
Competition: Buyers educate themselves by viewing many homes. They know what a fair price is. If your home is not competitive in value with those they have seen, it will not sell. Buyers typically look at a home within a $25,000 price range. If your home is not priced within the correct range, it very likely will not be exposed to its potential or targeted buyers.
Reputation: Overpricing causes most homes to remain on the market too long. Buyers, aware of a long exposure period, are often hesitant to make an offer because they fear "something is wrong" with the house. Often homes that are on the market for a long time eventually sell for less than their fair market value.
Inconvenience: If overpricing keeps your home from selling promptly, you can end up owning two homes - the one you've already purchased and the one you're trying to sell. This can prove costly and worrisome, as well as inconvenient.
EIGHTY PERCENT OF THE MARKETING OF YOUR HOME IS DONE THE NIGHT WE DECIDE AT WHAT PRICE WE WILL LIST YOUR HOME.
If you are unwilling to list your home at the current market value, you are better served to NOT put it on the market at all.

Why Does Myles McMahon Provide Home Staging Referrals For You?
The Problem – Most homeowners don’t really have an objective view of their home. Living in it on a daily basis skews their opinion. Often there are simple solutions to making a home show better.
The Solution – Have a professional, objective point of view! Not just an agent, but an experienced agent teamed with a professional stager. You are given advice, guidance and solutions making sure your home shows its best!
The Benefit to You
Benefits of Home Staging
Top Ten Reasons to Professionally Stage Your Home:
- Higher sale price. 83% of staged properties sell for asking price or above, compared to those not staged, in a similar market. A buyer’s perception of a home directly impacts the sale price. The price tag for staging is a fraction of the cost of just one price reduction.
- Faster sale. Gain market advantage with a small investment in professional home staging and seize the opportunity to sell your home in the least amount of time. Homes that are staged sell 75% faster than those that are not (13.8 days vs. 30.9 according to 2004 survey conducted on behalf of Coldwell Banker)
- Zero net cost. A 2003 HomeGain Survey showed that sellers who spent $1,000 staging their home recovered almost 200% of the staging cost from the increased sale price of their home.
- Objectivity. A home staging professional will provide the objective eye so that a carefully prepared action plan can be created.
Why Does Myles McMahon Provide A Handyman For You?
The Problem – Most homeowners have a few simple items that need to be corrected to put their home in tip-top shape. For most people, there just isn’t enough time to get these things done.
The Solution – I provide the services of a skilled professional to address those little things you never had time to repair. Painting that room that you had been meaning to get around to, or fixing the deck that has become an eye-sore. You’re free to take care of the numerous tasks to get ready for your move while I take care of the rest.
BENEFIT TO YOU
* Your buyer doesn’t have to spend time & effort to fix items that could have already been done.
* Buyers want a turn-key solution to their home purchase… that is why new homes are so popular. They are closer to getting that with your home.
* Your buyer prospects can see that you take care of the small things, and therefore can rest easier about the big things.
BENEFIT TO YOUR BUYER
* You don’t have to worry about the 101 little things that should be done for your home to show its very best.
* You know that the first impression a buyer has of your home will not include a list of repairs that they must complete after closing!
* You know that your price will not be negotiated down because of nit-picky little repairs.
On The Average…
12 Homes Before
That Means 11
Other Homes Are Competing
THE FACT OF THE MATTER
THE BEST CHANCE FOR SELLING YOUR PROPERTY IS WITHIN THE FIRST SEVEN WEEKS. STUDIES SHOW THAT THE LONGER A PROPERTY STAYS ON THE MARKET, THE LESS THE SELLER WILL NET.
It is very important to price your property at a competitive market value at the signing of the employment agreement. The market is so competitive that even overpricing by a few thousand could mean that your house will not sell.
Interestingly, your first offer is usually your best offer. Here are reasons for pricing your property at the market value right from the start in order to net you the most amount of money in the shortest amount of time.
An overpriced home:
* Minimizes offers.
* Lowers agent response.
* Limits qualified buyers.
* Lowers showings.
* Lowers prospects.
* Limits financing.
* Wastes advertising dollars.
* Nets less for the seller.
MOST PEOPLE ARE TURNED OFF BY EVEN THE SMALLEST AMOUNT OF UNCLEANLINESS OR ODOR. WHEN BUYING A HOME SELLERS LOSE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS BECAUSE THEY DO NOT ADEQUATELY CLEAN.
If your house is squeaky clean, you will be able to sell your home faster and net hundreds, if not thousands of dollars more. If you are planning on moving, why not get rid of that old junk now so that your house will appear larger? Make more space.
Odors must be eliminated especially if you have dogs, cats, young children in diapers or if you are a smoker. You may not notice the smell, but buyers do! Most agents have a difficult time communicating to their sellers about odor. By employing me to get the most amount of money for you, the seller, do not take offense if I must confront you about odor problems.
THE FACT OF THE MATTER
TOP SELLING AGENTS WILL NOT SHOW YOUR HOME IF BOTH THE KEY AND ACCESS ARE NOT READILY AVAILABLE. THEY DO NOT HAVE TIME TO RUN AROUND TOWN ALL DAY PICKING UP AND DROPPING OFF KEYS. THEY WANT TO SELL A HOME!
The greatest way to show a house is to have access to a key! When your house is being shown, please do the following:
* Keep all lights on.
* Keep all drapes and shutters open.
* Keep all doors unlocked.
* Leave soft music playing.
* Leave the premises.
* Take a short walk with your children and pets.
* Let the buyer be at ease and let the agents do their job.
PAINT & CARPET FACT
PAINT IS YOUR BEST IMPROVEMENT INVESTMENT FOR GETTING GREATER RETURN ON YOUR MONEY.
Paint makes the whole house smell clean and look neat. If your house has chipped paint, exposed wood or the paint looks faded, it is time to paint. If your carpet is worn, dirty, outdated or an unusual color, you may need to seriously consider replacing it. Many houses do not sell because of this problem. Don't think that buyers have more money than you have to replace carpet. They don't. They simply buy elsewhere.
YOUR FRONT YARD IMMEDIATELY REFLECTS THE INSIDE CONDITION OF YOUR HOUSE TO THE BUYER.
Our area has a good climate therefore outside activities are important. People enjoy their yards. Make certain that the trees are trimmed so the house can be seen from the street. Have the grass mowed, trimmed and edged. Walkways should be swept. Clean away debris. Remove parked cars. These all add to curb appeal. If a buyer does not like the outside, that person simply drives on.
Here Are Just Some Of The Ways We Expose Your Home To The Greatest Number Of Buyers...
By networking with, and marketing to, other Top Agents
Your Home is "Target Marketed" to determine who the most likely buyer will be - they will pay the most money.
With such aggressive online marketing, your home receives continuous inquiries from qualified buyers.
I perform specialized work to develop additional buyers such as e-mail marketing, and , maintaining computerized mailing lists of potential prospects.
Every agent makes great claims about their company’s marketing, or their personal marketing. Every agent is convinced that their marketing will find that “right” buyer for you. To make your decision a little easier, consider the following:
· If the broker is not investing in ads specifically targeted to buyers who want homes with views, how much less is their chance to find that “right” buyer ” with marketing specific to buyers who want homes like yours?
· How could starting a marketing program when your home is listed be more effective than a program that has been in place, and steadily attracting buyers for homes like yours?
· How much more effective in attracting buyers for a home like yours is a marketing program is designed to consistently and systematically attract buyers who want a home like yours, than a generic marketing program that attracts all kinds of buyers?
· How much more effective is offering incentives such as a GUARANTEE Move-Up program to attract buyers for your home. Check out our Move Up Program.
· How much more effective is a marketing program in attracting buyers if that program includes the marketing of ten, twenty or thirty homes like yours than a program that includes just your home which happens be on an acre or more, along with all kinds of other homes, condos etc.
Why Settle For Less
Than 24 Hour Service?
The Problem: Today’s real estate consumers want information and they want it fast. Calls to real estate offices have decreased to the lowest levels ever!
The Solution: Have an easy, non-threatening, source of information for prospects to get all the details they want and need about your home. Place a Text “Hotline” in marketing material for your buyers to access as well as a 24HR Information Hotline # on your sign rider.
The Benefit to You The Benefit to Buyers
Your buyers have 24/7 access They have text access to complete details about you to call for information home. 24/7. Your buyers get the details they need instantly. They have access to
all the information they want even if your agent isn't available. These details about your home
if not immediately available may send a buyer down the road. Your agent is notified of every call into the hotline so they can follow up and capture the lead opportunity.
It Costs you NOTHING!
The Real Estate Sign Placed In Your Yare Impacts Your Marketing More Than You Know...
The Problem: The phone number on your sign is often answered by a “staff person” or an agent sitting on “floor time”. The person who knows the most about your home does not even take those calls.
The Solution: Place a “direct” phone number to the agent on that sign instead of the phone number to the real estate office.
The Benefit to You The Benefit to Buyers
Your buyers have direct They have direct access to access to your real estate the agent who knows your

Who Will Buy Your Home
And How Will Your Broker Help?
41% of the homes we sell are relocating buyers! But that means the majority of your prospects are actually local buyers. These buyers just want a little more land, just like you did. They usually have to sell their home before they can buy your home. When you get an offer contingent on the sale of your buyer’s home, you are now between a rock and a hard place and you have some choices:
You can accept the buyer’s offer contingent on their home selling, but you are at the mercy of whether their home sells or not.
You can accept their offer and keep your home for sale, but under these circumstances buyers are less likely to look at your home because they know there is already a contingency contract on it.
With such aggressive online marketing, your home receives continuous inquiries from qualified buyers.
None are great alternatives… but there is another one that makes the most sense! Myles McMahon will GUARANTEE to sell your buyer’s home, thus guaranteeing that your buyer will close and move into your home according to your contract.
How and why can we do that? BECAUSE we are willing to buy their home if we don’t sell it in 90 days. This assures my sellers can plan to move even with a contingent offer. We are committed to our clients’ interests.
Targeted Online Marketing
Targeted Online Marketing means attracting and following up with the prospects who want a home like yours!
A Specific URL for YOUR home results in MORE qualified buyers seeing your home… i.e www.3925AnywhereLoop.com
Your online flyer consists of LOTS of pictures, a video tour, a detailed walk-through of the home, and rest assured, your prospects cannot get this level of information ANYWHERE else!
Here is an example of a current listing tour.
Access To Out-Of-Town Buyers Is
Vital In Searching For Your Buyer!
Relocation affiliation is not only important, but as mentioned before, it is “vital”! With the number of large corporations and the sheer volume of medium and small companies in the area, access to those buyers is a necessity when choosing a real estate agent.
Two areas of inquiry are needed in this important line of questioning. The real estate company and the Agent you hire should both have extensive access to income, new hires and transferees.
I am hired by and help buyers from the highest profile names in real estate to help with their relocation needs, Intel, Cal ISO are just a sampling of the companies that I have served.
In addition there are more small to medium companies in the Folsom area that add up to more relocating buyers… we assist these companies and buyers and have for close to 12 years.
I am personally a member of various Agent referral networks, and train real estate agents all over the U.S and Canada. Because of that, I receive personal referrals from agents all over the U.S and Canada. I literally have access to more out of town buyers than some real estate companies have. I sell buyers from all major corporations and many small companies that most people do not even know were located in our area.
Relocation is vital!
Online ads should be run for the specific purpose of generating prospects for your home!
buyers pay the most money for the
home that offers what they want!
Ads run with vague, generic language
and no price, provide little benefit to you.
An ad that directly describes your home and includes the price will attract inquiries from buyers who want the type of home that you have. Your best chance of converting that inquiry into a prospect and an actual showing will be when prospects receive qualified, professional assistance when calling.
Your ads should direct the inquirer
to a video tour online or to a direct
phone line where they can get all
the information they want and need.
Keep in mind that any ad run with no price is simply an attempt to draw inquiries and to convert those callers to clients. Surveys show that over 51% of prospects do not even continue reading ads with no prices. They assume that they will have to make an effort to find out the price and it is just not worth it to most prospects anymore… especially with so much available information online.
Our ads will assist the prospects by providing them the price, and giving them access to the virtual tour so that they can see the home inside and out. Our ads bring high quality responses, and result in consistent inquiries from viable prospects.
The Internet Doesn't Sell Homes
... People Do!
Many people think that to sell a home, you simply place it in the MLS and on the Internet and the right person to call and buy it… NOT SO! If that were true, real estate professionals would be out of work.
The basic law of real estate is this…
THE INTERNET DOES A GREAT JOB OF EXPOSING LISTINGS BUT IT DOESN’T SELL HOMES… PEOPLE DO!
We are trying to educate home sellers and the public about the tremendous changes in real estate marketing.
Anyone can put your home online, but not anyone can properly place homes online to get the most effective response from home buyers.
1. Proper preparation for the most possible views by buyers looking for a home like yours. (We even prepare the pictures for search results)
2. Multiple video tours and maximum PROFESSIONALLY photos so your home is presented at its BEST
3. Buyers actually have access to your agent for help.
4. Google rankings that result in multiple first page placements for your home.
5. Craigslist and other online ad programs that get double the response of other brokers
Just A Presence On The Internet
Is NOT Enough Anymore!
Just A Presence On The Internet
Is NOT Enough Anymore!
You Deserve For Your Agent To Make Every Effort To Find Your Buyer
... Saving You Money!
Your Agent’s objective should be to generate prospective buyers for your home, NOT to just wait for another agent to bring your buyer.
If your home is marketed properly and aggressively, this is a real possibility.
NO ONE knows your home better and no one has a better chance of making certain a qualified buyer sees it when they are ready to see it.
Keep in mind that when a buyer responds to our marketing, an appointment is confirmed and one of us will accompany that buyer to your home. We always represent you, and we make certain the buyer is aware of this, as the law states.
The fact that we represent you should in no way hinder our attempts to find a buyer for your home. Too many agents claim they are just listing agents and make little attempt to fulfill their ultimate responsibility to you, to secure a buyer for your home We continually strive to do so.

We Don't Make Empty Promises
... We Make Commitments And
EACH Commitment Is Made
To You In WRITING!
Isn’t that the way you want to do business, with everything clarified in writing. Your listing agreement, purchase contract, title work, and other legal documents are in writing. Shouldn’t the commitments made to you by your real estate agent be in writing too?

Additionally, communication is in writing as your marketing and sale progress. When ads are run, inquiries handled, e-mail promotions implemented, personal promotion completed, 800 hotline calls followed up, you receive written correspondence.
I tell you what I am going to do, then I do it, then I tell you I did it and what the results are!
You don’t have to guess about what is going on with the marketing of your home. You don’t have to try to remember what promises were made, you don’t have to wonder if anything is actually being done. You know in advance, during and after. Isn’t that the way you want to do business?

The Offer Process

2. After all of our questions have been answered by the buyer's agent, we will privately review the offer and make a decision to accept, or counter the offer.
3. Items to pay special attention to:
a. Interest rate should be close to prevailing rates.
b. What is the length of time for loan approval?
c. Who is paying for the title insurance and escrow fees?
d. Time frames on all inspections.
e. Who Pays for a survey (you can get caught with this expense even though you think you are covered)
f. Who is paying for inspections and/or repairs?
g. Length of contract.

We Make Sure Only QUALIFIED
Buyers Look At Your Home
We use our own extra cautionary, 3rd degree level of making sure your buyers are qualified EVEN IF they are Pre-Qualified or Pre-Approved.
Why? Because pre-qualification letters are often not worth the paper they are written on. We implement a strenuous investigation to make certain your buyer will qualify to close your home! You see, buyers often just want to get the contract done because:
Some are in a hurry to move.
Some are serious
but not in a hurry.
Some are bargain hunters.
Some will never buy.

There is no other agent who does
as much to get your home sold!
It takes pro-active and aggressive marketing…
not passive, hopeful selling!
In today’s real estate market you need an agent who will actively market your home at all times. You need a Realtor who earns the commission you pay and works hard to get your home SOLD!
Most real estate agents participate in “Passive Marketing” – that is listing your home for 90 days in the MLS, sticking a sign in the yard, having an occasional open house, or making a flyer, while waiting and hoping for a buyer or another agent with a buyer. These passive methods just do not work in today’s real estate market.
My team and I implement “Active Marketing”. We literally search for and follow up with your potential buyers via many traditional methods AND many cutting edge methods that are not used by many agents today. I feel obligated to actively try to find buyers for my sellers each and every day. That is what you are paying me to do! We also search for sellers? Why does that help you? Because the more signs I have out, the more potential buyers will call me, which means more potential buyers I can tell about your home. Ads and flyers do not sell homes…People sell homes.
It is more critical than ever to expose your home to as many targeted buyers as possible in order to get it SOLD! The best way for that to happen is with “Pro-active Marketing”

A Seller’s Guide To Interviewing A
Real Estate Agent To Sell Your Home
There are over 5,700 real estate licensees in our area. Choosing the right agent for your home can be confusing. It is especially difficult when you speak with several agents and they all seem so convincing.
There is a way to determine who is most likely to succeed in getting your price and terms. The key is knowing the right questions to ask. This is especially important now, as homes are selling more slowly.
The following list provides you with some questions to ask prospective agents. This list will not only help you select the right agent, but also get the very best from the one you choose!
1) Do you work as a Full-Time” Realtor?
2) How many listings of homes on acreage do you have at this time? (more listings means more buyer inquiries for your home.)
3) Do you have a staff to insure that all details are handled?
4) How many potential buyers for homes on acreage do you talk to daily?
5) How will you encourage other Realtors to show my home?
6) Do you have a system of follow up, so that we get valuable feedback from agents and buyers after showings?
7) How many properties have you sold in the past 90 days? (6 mo)
8) Do you have references that I may check?
9) How do you promote buyers for homes on acreage differently?
10) How do you expose my property on the Internet?
11) Do you have a Specific Marketing Plan to sell my home?
12) Do you have a Specific Pricing Strategy to get me top dollar?
13) Do you use a Text service to provide instant information on my home?
14) What is the difference between “passive” and “Pro-Active” Marketing”
15) Do you believe in “Target Marketing” (marketing to the buyers
who want what your home offers)
17) What marketing systems do you use that no one else has available?
Three Factors to Consider
When Selling Your Home
The three factors to consider in selling your home are location, condition and price…and they are all related.
1. Location: Your home's location and setting influences its value. A home inside a quiet subdivision sells for more than the identical home on a busy street. Remote areas typically sell for less than closed-in area. Views, streams and trees usually enhance value. You obviously have no control over location.
2. Condition: New homes enjoy a marketing edge over resale homes because they are shiny and clean. And builders enhance their appeal by offering model homes (clean, bright, decorated in current colors and amenities) for buyers to examine.
Our goal it to make your home as close to a model home as possible…being sensitive to costs. You have nearly complete control over condition and you can increase value and decrease marketing time by being sure your property is in the best possible condition.
3. Pricing: If IBM stock is trading between 104 and 108, it does no good to insist on selling at 112. Likewise, your home must be priced within the appropriate range. You must actually "sell" your property twice: first to a buyer and then to an appraiser. The buyer is more subjective and compares the amenities of your home to those of other homes in the same price range. The appraiser is more objective and compares age, size and cost-identifiable features in your home against other properties that have sold.
Myles McMahon uses his experience and expertise to fine-tune the price by taking into consideration all of these variables.

Myles McMahon of McMahon Phillip Real Estate did a phenomenal job in rapidly and effectively selling my home! In the current environment, it is not easy to rapidly sell a more expensive home when the Sacramento region has a number of bank foreclosures and short sales. Myles is well versed in these types of transactions as well. Amazingly, Myles found the right buyer in the first weekend and, better yet, brought in an offer above list price! As an additional handicap, I warned him from the beginning that this was going to be a difficult transaction. You see, I co-owned this home with a former girlfriend who was uncooperative and challenging with all concerned from beginning to end. Despite this hardship, Myles is one of those rare people who can bring the best out in anybody. It was impressive to see him moving things along and successfully managing the people involved. I strong recommend that you select Myles as your broker of choice if you are interested in results!
“Thank you for going above and beyond our expectations. Moving (this was our 6th, has never been easier and Myles you are by far the most hard working and professional Realtor we’ve ever had"
