Motivation for Selling

An experienced agent will examine your specific selling situation and reasons for selling your home. The most successful sales are highly motivated sellers that have strong reasoning behind why they are ready to move. Many homes often expire because the homeowners don’t have genuine motivation for selling their home. With the right agent and right motivations for selling a home, an agent will develop a strategic plan to get your home more exposure. At Eillu, our marketing strategy will detail particular tactics to maximize your property’s online presence and attract the right leads for your home.


At Eillu, we understand the local market and have over two decades of experience. Homeowners often believe that selling your home during a certain time of year is the best approach. But, waiting for a so called opportune time also has the costs of postponing your future.  While traditionally, more sales occur in the summer, the other seasons also have advantages.  Winter is thought to be a “bad” time to sell but selling in the winter means you will have less competition.


At Eillu, we work together to serve you and your best interests. Our agents strive to deliver above and beyond what is expected. Service to our clients is our top priority and we are always here to answer questions or listen to the client’s needs.
