At Briggs Vance & Associates we believe no agent should ever put a lockbox on your home to sell your home.  A member of our team will be at your home for every showing.  You've told us all about your home, the special features, items to highlight to a buyer, and much more that cannot be added into the MLS.  Nor should a buyers' agent (who knows nothing about your home like we do) be relied upon to sell your home or infuse their opinion.  Because we are there, we get immediate feedback from the buyer rather than waiting for buyers' agents to give us feedback, IF they ever do.  We are able to interact with the buyer, determine their level of interest which aids in negotiations and any objections can be overcome immediately so when the buyer leaves the showing they feel good about your home.   We have your home in lights (figuratively and literally) rather than someone walking into an empty, cold, dark house.  We are at every follow up showing, appraisal appointment, inspections, or any other third party service needed for the transaction.  Because of this service, we get high sales prices, no fall throughs (or your home having to be placed back on the market),  and with less time on the market.
