Buyers Representation / Seller AgencyAccording to the National Association of Realtors, 94% of people who are looking for real estate begin by viewing online sources. 92% use a local real estate agency to find property to purchase.
At Homes on MV, our sales success is a result of our combination of precise knowledge of our seller's property, our professional presentation and showings and our extensive advertising campaign. Our agents have a though understanding of the Island, and we welcome the opportunity to show unique properties to help our clients gain a sense of confidence and knowledge about Martha's Vineyard Real Estate.
Similarly, we take the time to educate clients about the Martha's Vineyard real estate market and how it varies from town to town and price point to price point. We explain what recent sales and trends represent - which can be complicated since the secondary market does not always reflect the same patterns as primary markets. We share how zoning, permitting and planning varies from town to town and within specific associations, districts, and coastal areas. More importantly, we recognize when properties require further expertise and will facilitate consultations with engineers or surveyors when your objectives require it.
We advertise locally, regionally and nationally incorporating many different types of media from traditional print ads to strategic internet marketing. HMV is an active member of the local multiple listing service (LINKMV), CCIAOR and MassPIN which provides a complete statewide coverage. In addition, CCIAOR and Pin syndicate their listings worldwide – for our clients, this means your property is in front of people who are looking for real estate on Martha’s Vineyard.
Our agents are all members of the National Association of Realtors®. While not all agents on Martha’s Vineyard are Realtor®, at HMV, we pride ourselves on following the strict code of ethics required by the NAR.
We are selective about the homes we represent. We maintain a select inventory of fine Island homes in each town.
Listing your house for rent is easy. We walk through the house in order to understand the amenities and feel. We document features with a detailed information sheet and we photograph with an eye on what renters are looking for. (If you have pictures that we should use, that is great). We can assist homeowners in setting realistic rental rates based on our rental history with comparable properties. We also can help prepare your house for rentals, deposits, payment schedules and commission fees.
Finding a vacation house is easy - HMV offers an impressive inventory of homes for rent on the island of Martha's Vineyard, ranging from quaint summer cottages to luxurious family compounds. If we don’t have the ideal property listed, we can find one quickly and easily. Whether you are looking for a weeklong vacation on the water or a seasonal house, we have many options for you to consider.
Once a year, our staff will inspect your property and provide a comprehensive evaluation of items that may need to be maintained or repaired. All inspections will include a complete estimate of parts and services and a clearly defined completion date.
