Since 1976, Beverly-Hanks has refined a system for selling your home based on our experience selling 2,333 properties each year.
Beverly-Hanks associates provide full service at every step of the home selling process, and our listings are supported by 60 operations and marketing team members.

Our clients use our Four-Step Selling Process to prepare their homes for sale, price them properly, attract offers, and negotiate terms for a timely sale at the highest price possible. Learn how you can tap into our Four-Step Selling Process through our complimentary Seller’s Workbook.
Step 1: Price
Setting the correct list price is the most important decision you can make when selling your home. In fact, setting the right asking price is imperative! Statistically speaking, even pricing at market value doesn’t guarantee exposure to 100% of home buyers. Overprice by even 10%, and only 30% of house hunters will consider your home at all before eliminating it online.
At Beverly-Hanks, we cooperate with you to determine the best possible price based on when you want to complete the sale. Our agents combine their experience and market analysis tools with the first-hand knowledge you provided in the Seller’s Workbook to get top market value for your home.
THE SELLER’S WORKBOOK WILL HELP YOU DETERMINE:
- IF YOU SHOULD BUY OR SELL FIRST.
- THE OPTIMAL PRICE BASED ON THE DATE YOU’D LIKE TO MOVE.
- WHY OVERPRICING BY 10% CAN LEAD TO 70% OF POSSIBLE BUYERS SKIPPING YOUR HOME.
Step 2: Prepare
If you want to get top dollar for your home, you need it parade ready. Together, we walk through your home to help you identify and rank home repairs and improvements that provide the best return. We can even help you hire reputable landscapers, cleaners, and painters to ensure your first impression “wows” buyers. The Seller’s Workbook is full of information to help you prepare your home for the market.
THE SELLER’S WORKBOOK GIVES YOU:
- A 56-POINT CHECKLIST TO HELP YOUR HOME SPARKLE.
- 9 HOME INSPECTION ISSUES TO SOLVE BEFORE LISTING.
- A QUIZ TO HELP YOU DETERMINE WHETHER YOU’RE READY TO GET TOP DOLLAR.
Step 3: Market
When more people view your property, more showings take place. When more showings take place, more offers are generated. When more offers are generated, more money goes into your pocket.
Working together, our award-winning Marketing Department and your agent ensure thousands of potential buyers view your home. Digital, email, direct mail, and print marketing campaigns drive millions of views to our clients’ homes. These and other strategies generated over 5,923 property inquiries in 2016.

Step 4: Negotiate

- Best moving date for you.
- Shortest due diligence period.
- Fewest repairs.

Having an agent with a record of bringing buyers and sellers together will impact your sales price. Rather than approaching negotiations with an adversarial mindset, our agents work to prevent emotions from derailing the process and focus on achieving your top objectives.
