List Your House in 2018: Seller Incentives

If you are thinking about listing your home before the end of the year, then the team at Stowe Area Realty may have the EXTRA pluses to motivate you! In addition to our customer-centric, quality service, 100+ years of combined real estate expertise and powerful marketing strategies, we are now offering two incentives through December 2018.*


InspectionThe home inspection is the most prominent hurdle to clear in a real estate transaction. Inspections are often where sales fall apart, leaving the sellers to pick up the pieces.

When a client contracts to list his or her home with Stowe Area Realty for one year at a Fair Market Value, Stowe Area Realty will pay for a pre-inspection. 

With a top-shelf pre-inspection sellers can:

  • Find out the exact condition of the property.
  • Be confident with an accurate price for the home.
  • Get ahead of any issues by repairing them now, on their timetable.
  • Minimize negotiations later.

At face value, this saves a homeowner/seller between $400 and $800, depending on square footage, but more importantly it’s a proactive step that puts the seller ahead of the curve with less stress down the road.


America Home ShieldAfter a client lists his or her home with Stowe Area Realty, and the house successfully closes, Stowe Area Realty will purchase a one-year Home Warranty Plan from American Home Shield. (AHS® Home Warranty Plans cover many of the repair and replacement costs of more than 20 of a home's major appliances and system parts when they break down due to normal wear and tear.) 

How does that help a seller?

  • Homes with warranties return a higher average sales price.
  • Buyers prefer to buy a home with a warranty.
  • Homes on the market with a warranty sell faster.

A real estate home warranty gives buyers and sellers the protection they need to walk away from the closing table confidently and ready for a new chapter in homeownership.

*Offer available to the first five client(s) to list his or her residential property for a one-year term before December 31, 2018. Client(s) will choose ONE incentive.
