Selling Santa Barbara luxury real estate can be tricky
The purchase or sale of Santa Barbara luxury real estate is different than selling your average single-family home or starter condominium. That’s why it’s imperative to secure the assistance of a trusted and respected member of the Santa Barbara luxury real estate community. The homes these agents show are appropriate only for a handful of buyers. They may even go unlisted to protect a high-profile seller’s privacy. What’s more, these homes are often found through personal connections rather than public open houses and behind the scenes negotiation is often the name of the game.
When it comes time to sell luxury real estate or even Santa Barbara ocean view real estate, discriminating homeowners of the finest homes and estates in Montecito, Hope Ranch, Santa Barbara, Summerland, and Carpinteria connect with me – Cristal Clarke. With more than two decades of Santa Barbara real estate knowledge and expertise, I offer my clients an unsurpassed level of marketing and negotiating skill along with an impressive roster of qualified buyers.
Plenty of luxury homes are advertised and marketed in our Multiple Listing Service or online through national media sites. However, many sellers first attempt to sell via private networks to avoid the hassle of an open house. No matter what path you choose, you can be certain I will use my extensive resources and connections in the industry to make your transaction as smooth and successful as possible. In addition to guaranteed placement of your Santa Barbara luxury real estate in our local MLS, you will receive the unsurpassed support and global reach of the Sotheby’s brand worldwide. Further, each property I represent receives exposure in a beautiful and professionally written and photographed, full-color brochure to further enhance the properties selling features and distinguishing characteristics.
In today’s competitive real estate market, the sale of Santa Barbara luxury real estate and Santa Barbara ocean view real estate can often happen via the tried and true “six-degrees of separation” sales technique. For example, a charity auction or country club function can often lead to a buyer through social connections. While you don’t need your agent running to every social event in town, having an agent who is socially connected can bring a larger pool of buyers to your property. In addition, a strong social networking presence online can attract both local and international buyers.
