Sellers Information

Because Experience Matters

As a full-service professional real estate company, Real Estate Broker John Keoni Welch is committed to the following services when assisting you in the sale of your home or investment:

CMA (Comparative Market Analysis): During the initial consultation, we provide you with a free analysis of the market and comparable homes in your neighborhood. These homes will share similar features with your property and are referred to as comps. Comps provide statistical data that, coupled with our knowledge of local trends, allow you to make an informed decision on the listing price of your property. This is absolutely critical as many sellers try to sell their homes on their own (called For Sale By Owners or FSBO's) and have no means by which to determine their asking price. Other sellers are sometimes misguided by "less informed" agents who offer advice that is not based on the market data. Either way, two negative outcomes will most likely result: 1) Too low of an asking price, which translates into a steal for someone else, but a loss of your profit; or 2) Too high of an asking price which will result in the home sitting on the market month after month resulting in tens of thousands of dollars in loss.

Announce listing to the states top real estate agents: We will announce your listing through various channels to Hawaii's top real estate agents, who help thousands of buyers in the Honolulu area find their dream home every year. We will also distribute your listing to our large network of top real estate firms in Honolulu and the surrounding areas. This method often brings in one or more offers in a short amount of time resulting in a timely, top-dollar sale.

Putting your property into the Honolulu MLS: MLS stands for Multiple Listing Service and is a directory where local Realtors post residential, commercial, and rental properties. This means that virtually every Realtor in Honolulu will see your home and let their buyers know!

Posting your Property online with the National Association of Realtors: website is one of the most frequently used websites in the world. This gives your property 24/7 exposure to home buyers around the world.

Inspections & Disclosures: A key part of selling your home is performing the necessary inspections (physical home inspection, pest inspection, etc.) and writing up the necessary disclosures for the potential buyer. This is done for your legal protection and gives the buyer a sense of safety and comfort as they are informed about the property's details, and thus feel more secure about making a financial commitment. As your professional Hawaii real estate agent, John Keoni Welch and his team will schedule all necessary inspections and draft all disclosures so all you have to do is sign on the dotted line!

Staging: If this options is desired, staging entails hiring professional cleaners and contractors to make your property look immaculate. While this may entail a small investment, it usually results in a higher sales price and is a great return on the small investment. We will handle contracting and scheduling service providers, making all necessary arrangements, and submit all invoices to you during escrow. After your home is cleaned and touched-up, our interior designer reviews the property and comes up with a decorating scheme. It is important to give your property style, while staying with neutral decoration and staging that will appeal to the larger portion of Honolulu area home seekers. To accomplish this we use every trick in the book, from fresh flowers and plants to mirrors and increased bulb wattage to make your house a brighter and more attractive Hawaii dream home.

Advertising: Utilizing our marketing techniques gained from over 25 years of Hawaii real estate experience and as tech-savvy entrepreneurs, we have come up with innovative ways to penetrate the Honolulu Hawaii Real Estate Market to ensure that the maximum number of potential buyers see your property. We refuse to be boxed in to a single kind of advertisement like many Realtors who just list their properties in the newspaper with hundreds of other competing homes. We utilize many forms of print and online advertising including professional flyers, print ads in appropriate publications and letters & postcards to surrounding homes and our extensive list of contacts. We also advertise your property on a multitude of the most highly rated specially designed real estate search engines so your home is getting worldwide exposure 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This includes a feature listing on our extensive website which is professionally optimized to draw the most online consumers.

Open Houses & Showing Your Home: How is your property going to sell if people can't come in and see it? While being sensitive to each seller's need for privacy, we work with the seller to establish dates and times for us to personally show the property and hold open houses. More viewings increase the demand for your home, resulting in higher offers, and more net profit for you.

Negotiating: As a result of our innovative marketing strategies and powerful sales techniques you will inevitably have offers coming in on your home. As both a real estate sales and investment company we will be able to help you sort through the offers, offering professional guidance. This ensures that you receive top dollar for your property, and not fall prey to any of those get-rich-quick investor schemes. We know that selling your home can be a very emotionally draining process, but you can rest assured that John Keoni Welch will be negotiating for you personally and standing his ground, fighting for your profit. 

Legal Advice and Drafting up Contracts: Realtors are not allowed to give formal tax and legal advice, but we can help explain the contract and its legal ramifications. John Keoni Welch has the technical knowledge to walk you step by step through the many pages of legal jargon and disclosures that make up the Real Estate contract. While many Realtors have you simply sign at the bottom line, we believe in educating you on the home selling process. This way you know exactly what you are signing and how each amendment of the contract will affect your net profit and selling experience. We sit down with you for as long as it takes, explaining the contract in more simplified language because misunderstanding the legally binding text will have serious ramifications. 

From start to finish, John Keoni Welch will be there as your Honolulu Real Estate Broker to walk you through the entire process of selling your home. As we have taken the first step in educating you on the complexity of the Hawaii home-selling process, we trust we've proven our expertise. As an added incentive, we offer sellers rebates in the form of cash credits to assist you with closing costs or other expenses.

The next step is to give us the chance to put this expertise to work for you. To contact John Keoni Welch, please call (808) 226-1728 or email We look forward to serving you and your Honolulu area Real Estate needs.
