Introduction

Real estate services have been deemed an essential service by our provincial government. While we understand the world is working its way through a pandemic unlike anything we have seen before, we also understand that real estate services are essential for many people wishing to sell or buy a home. Our services are still required for many of you wishing to take advantage of our currently active market, or perhaps you have sold your home and wish to buy a home to live in, or you want to protect yourselves financially should this pandemic continue for longer than we expect. Whatever your reasons, we are here to help you through this in a safe and effective manner. Our team has been working tirelessly over the past 14 days to put together a platform that keeps you and your neighbours safe while delivering the same outstanding results. We are proud to launch this new platform and excited at the great results it is getting for our clients. So, in order to provide the same level of service and results to our clients in this new environment we have rolled the PRG Virtual Platform.

Step 1: Meet us online for market update and evaluation

We actually find people who have worked with us past and present are preferring this comfort of being in their own home while we walk step by step through all of the information and data pertaining to the value and sale of their property.

Step 2: Drop Keys at our Drop Box

Outside our office any time day or night, you can walk up to our drop box and leave your keys for us to gain access to your unit, it is a simple no contact method for us to have the access we need.

Step 3: No- Touch Staging

  • Arrange for a time to come and view the home (when no one is home)
  • Make a list of required home preparation and staging that is required to make the home show its best.  This includes items we will cover and some items that you will need to do prior to photos.
  • Coordinate a schedule to complete 
    • all preparation and staging tasks (interior and exterior)
    • Measuremaster to visit for floor plans
    • any on-site repairs, removal of items, rubbish removal
    • cleaning
    • professional photos with Listings Manager 

Step 4: Virtual Marketing

Our online virtual marketing plan is second to none in the industry and utilizes all the latest in technology to market your home to the absolute largest sample of buyers and Realtors possible in an efficient and effective manner.  

Even though this plan is predominantly virtual, there are still hard copy marketing pieces and marketing steps that we have kept due their effectiveness even in the new market we are working in.  I will break the marketing plan into four sections.  First the Hard Copy Marketing and secondly the Virtual Marketing, then Private Showings, then Backoffice Offers.

  • Drone Flights
  • Social Posts
  • Online Advertisements
  • 3D Models
  • Animated ads
  • Daily updates
  • Print Media
  • Direct Mail

Step 5: Live Stream Broadcast

This fantastic event is a highly promoted and anticipated live opening of the property to waiting buyers and Realtors.  It is scheduled for a specific day and time, usually 3-4 days post launch to allow sufficient time for the word to get out.  Either Marty or Adam will host this live event through Facebook.  The broadcast includes an exterior tour of street front and area and an interior walk through of the property from room to room pointing out the special features and upgrades done on the property.  At the same time viewers are given the opportunity to ask questions through the platform with team members standing by to answer them live.  We make the live tour fun, exciting, and eventful.  We have had great success with this resulting in hundreds of viewers logging in.

Step 6: Private Covid-19 Safe, No-Touch Showings and Inspections

Regardless of all the extensive online and virtual marketing provided on your home, there are still a large contingent of buyers that wish to walk through the property themselves before committing to making an offer.  To satisfy this fundamental need we have researched all the Covid-19 federal and provincial guidelines and developed a Covid-safe protocol “PRG Covid-19 Showings Protocol” (see attached).  This new protocol provides a safe and non-rushed private tour of your home using all the safeguards available to us today to keep the buyers and you safe.

Step 7: Online Multiple Offer Presentation

The DVOP is a pre-set date and time where we will link up with you live via Zoom to entertain offers.  We provide any offering parties the opportunity to either email their offer to us and be available for a phone call, or to present in person in our controlled Zoom environment.  As before, when we did our offer negotiations in-house at our PRG office, this virtual environment offers the same theatre to allow us to have offering parties compete against one another to yield the highest possible sale price for your home.  Depending on how many offers we generate on your home, the DVOP can run from 1-3 hours long.  The date and time are set and outlined in the Direction Regarding the Presentation of Offers (DRPO) form.  The DRPO is given to any interested parties asking when offers are being entertained.

Step 8: SOLD!!

We don’t stop here, we help you every step of the way once the offer is accepted from subject removal to closing and possession, we guide you through each step in the process from sale to moving out.

It’s A Great Time To Buy A Detached Home Now

Every market holds opportunity, the key is to know where to look for it…
Today’s greatest market opportunity resides in purchasing detached homes.

The detached market has been the most impacted both value, and activity wise across the board. The causes of this have been discussed already at great length; but in short they stem from the B20 stress test mortgage rule changes, a lack of consumer confidence, and other government intervention into the real estate marketplace. This has resulted in an excellent time for two real estate moves, first to upgrade from condo, or other strata property (which are still very active), or second to purchase detached as an investment property. The rental market remains strong, and we have had some clients secure amazing deals on detached homes, and rent part of the home or all of the home and get excellent monthly cost coverage, and some are cash flow positive.

We have also helped a number of clients recently upgrade from strata property to detached houses, as the price gap is smaller than it has been in years. (See the graph below- looking at Vancouver East for Example) So the marginal mortgage increase in property price is not a large as it once was (especially when you consider basement rental etc.), in fact it is smaller than it has been in years. When the market confidence returns, as it always does, this gap will grow/spread again, and this opportunity will pass.

We would be happy to meet with you and discuss how you could take advantage of this market opportunity to upgrade from your strata property to a detached house, or to purchase an investment detached house.

Marty’s team moves with impressive speed and efficiency.

Marty’s team moves with impressive speed and efficiency. I never imagined from the time we decided to list our property, that his team could market, stage and sell our house this quickly in a Buyer’s market. While many houses in our neighbourhood have sat on the market for weeks or even months, Marty managed to sell our house in less than a week for a price we are happy with.

Consistently Provided Exceptional Service, Pleasant and Enjoyable To Work With

We are extremely happy with the service that Adam and Team Pospischil have provided and it has led to us purchasing our first apartment in Vancouver!

From the very beginning, Adam has been very thorough and knowledgable and he really understood what we were looking for in an apartment, which helped us find the perfect match.

As first-time home buyers, we entered unfamiliar territory and Adam was able to expertly guide us the whole way.  He consistently provided exceptional service and was pleasant and enjoyable to work with.

In the competitive Vancouver market, Adam helped us to feel very confident that we were buying a home that was right for us and for the right price.

Thank you to Adam, Marty and the team – we would not have such a great place to call our own without you!

SOLD in 1 WEEK  for More Than $600,000 over Ask

We are delighted with our results and highly recommend this professional and courteous team.

In the summer, we approached Marty to give us an evaluation for our home, as we wanted to move to a one story condo.

Marty and Adam presented us with a Sales Review and 38 Point Marketing Plan that were truly impressive. Over the course of the next 6 months, Adam kept us up to date as to the units available that met our needs for a new home, but never pressured us regarding listing our home to buy something new.

It became apparent that in today’s market, we would be making offers on an “all cash” basis with few or no subjects for a new home. We called Team Pospischil to list our home.

Team Pospischil’s well oiled marketing machine went to work and brought 172 people through our property and generated 10 offers.

Our old home sold in ONE week, at a RECORD SETTING PRICE – MORE THAN $600k over our asking price, well above our expectations and a record for the Westside. We have nothing but good things to say about Team Pospischil.

Thank you Team Pospischil!

Ride To Conquer Cancer

Some of us may have been eating cold dinners by candle light after the monsoon that hit Vancouver during the last weekend in August. This was five star dining, considering the conditions under which the 10 members of Team Pospischil / Dexter were slogging it out during the 2015 Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Ride-to-conquer-sept-2015-digital

This year’s 250 km ride from Vancouver to Seattle included downed power lines, fallen trees blocking routes, detours,120 km/h winds, outhouses blowing across pit stops and tent accommodations that weren’t there because they just blew away.

Ride 2015 had its own brand of rewards: a sense of accomplishment like no other, the camaraderie that comes from having completed such a challenge, and of course the satisfaction that we, through your support as our clients, are able to make a difference in the constant battle to beat cancer.

Most importantly Team Pospischil / Dexter and our supporters contributed $35,000 to the total $8.4 million raised this year to help conquer a disease that makes Ride 2015 look like a bike ride in a summer drizzle. Worth every wet & stormy minute.

As a Team Marty Homes client, you automatically contribute to raising funds for cancer research and treatment options all year. Through you, we support this cause at every event and with ongoing donations. Thank you for being part of our team.

We would highly recommend Marty and his team to anyone selling their home.

We would  highly recommend Marty and his team to anyone selling their home.   They are very professional and knowledgeable about real estate business. Marty follows a very detailed and thorough marketing and selling plan for your home.  He fully explained the steps to us, followed the steps and as a result our home sold just as he said it would – quickly and above asking.   We would definitely hire Marty and the team again!
