How do I know it’s the right time to sell my property?

Many clients come to Kiser Group with an immediate need to sell a property. Some have not yet made the decision to sell, however, and seek our guidance.  In both instances, the first and most critical step is for Kiser Group to value the property. Only with an accurate valuation under current market conditions can a client determine whether to sell now, sell and exchange into another property, refinance, renovate, or just hold. 

Once Kiser Group has completed its analysis of a client's property, we discuss it with the client, give the client our advice based on their goals, and put the ball in their court. It is the client's ultimate decision whether to sell or not. Kiser Group is prepared and ready to work for our clients when the time comes.

How long does it take?

As part of its analysis of value, Kiser Group gives each client an estimate of how long it will be from marketing to close of escrow for the transaction.  Kiser Group's work does not end until the property is closed. Although analyzing a property accurately, promoting the real estate, and procuring offers from qualified buyers requires expertise and great effort, some of the hardest work occurs during the escrow process - after the contract for the sale of the property is signed.  From that time until closing, Kiser Group works with attorneys, lenders, appraisers, environmental examiners, and all other third parties to make sure that deadlines are met, escrow monies are paid, and conditions are removed. Our goal is to achieve an expedient and clean closing. We make sure the deal stays on track, all issues are resolved, and the deal is complete.

What do I have to do?

Once you make the decision to sell, Kiser Group steps in to do the work so that you don’t have to. The goal of Kiser Group's valuation process and marketing strategy is to obtain the strongest offers with the highest prices from buyers who will close the property. Kiser Group achieves this goal by generating competition for a property, qualifying the buyers who have interest in the asset, and expertly negotiating the terms of the contract.

The ultimate decision of whether to accept an offer is the client's. Every client has different parameters that are important to him or her. Kiser Group understands that and works closely with each unique client to meet his or her specific goals.

How will the best buyer be found?

Once a client decides to sell an asset, Kiser Group develops a custom marketing strategy to meet our client's goals. Sometimes that means very little exposure of a property and a quiet marketing process. Most times that means employing an approach to reach the largest number of interested and qualified buyers. The point is to create competition for the property and draw out the right buyer at the right price under the right conditions.

In either case, Kiser Group is proactive in selling our clients' properties. Because of Kiser Group's track record and consistent inventory of Chicago apartment properties for sale, buyers seek out Kiser Group and the properties we represent. Kiser Group is constantly in touch with thousands of potential buyers, meeting them, speaking to them by phone and email, touring them through properties, analyzing properties and projects for them, sending them written marketing materials featuring properties for sale, and advertising in various media. The consistency and breadth of our marketing approach and quality of our marketing materials is unmatched in the industry.

How much does it cost?

To deliver the best results, Kiser Group develops a custom approach for each transaction we manage. As a boutique firm, we’re able to offer our clients competitive pricing to market and sell their property –from multi-family courtyards and mid-rises to mixed use, retail strip centers, office properties, and large parcels of land. Ultimately, our fee depends on a variety of factors, including property size, the current market, and the work required to successfully market and sell the asset. Contact us to learn more about our price structure and to receive a custom quote for your property.

What is the benefit of listing with Kiser Group?

Kiser Group gives its clients real numbers. Although we aggressively seek and achieve the highest market price for our clients' properties, we will not inflate a value just to get a listing. That would be a waste of your time and ours. We work proactively and aggressively for each client until the job is done. Kiser Group agents scour the market until we find the right buyer and close the property to our client’s satisfaction.

  • Kiser Group has set the standard of professionalism in the sale of multi-family properties. Their research and presentation abilities are second to none in the industry. I have been both a seller and a buyer with Kiser Group and appreciate the service and commitment they consistently demonstrate. As a licensed Illinois Real Estate Broker for 35 years, I never thought I would use a third party to sell my properties, but they add value and bring results!
