Answer a few quick questions and we’ll provide you with an estimated home value and up-to-date market trends, as well as the best selling options for your home.

As Your Agent, We Will:

  • Complete a comparative market analysis that will compare your home’s value to that of your neighbors.
  • Help you stage your home and generate curb appeal to ensure you get the highest price.
  • Your property is immediately listed on three Multiple Listing Service (MLS) which is a daily catalog of homes for sale through its member brokers and an online computer network, available to its members, with photos and descriptions of all listed properties.  We personally submit photos and the descriptive elements of your home to ensure that you have the best possible representation on the MLS.
  • Compile a comprehensive marketing plan detailing all the efforts we will employ to sell your property, including all major real estate search portals:  YouTube, social media promotion, blast email ads, professional photography (oftentimes including twilight and/or drone photos), billboard advertising (optional), open houses (depending on your location) and many other incremental steps.
  • On our website, where your property will be featured, we include the most advanced tools available which include active maps and automatic email notifications, to give buyers more reasons to keep coming back.
  • Present your home to as many qualified buyers as possible getting your home maximum exposure.
  • Assist with obtaining offers and help you in negotiating the best deal as smoothly as possible.
  • Help you find your next home and answer all of your questions about the local market area which may include schools, neighborhoods, the local economy, and more.

The Proof Is In The Numbers…

  1. The average days on market for homes sold by SNR is almost three weeks faster than the average days on market for the rest of the Upper Cumberland Association of REALTORs.  Remember, in real estate, time is money.  Every day can cost you hundreds and sometimes thousands or even worse, a day could cause you to miss out on the property you want to buy!
  2. The average REALTOR only sold 4 listings in 2022. Heather Skender-Newton with the SNR team sold 436 listings in 2021.
  3. On average, when an offer came in on a home, SNR was able to negotiate 2% more money for our clients compared to the average agent in the market.  On $300,000 this is equivalent to $7,000 more in our client's pockets.

When we say that our Cookeville real estate agents can sell your home for more money in less time, we can back it up!!
