The Start of a "New Legacy"

The two families working together is nothing new as the two companies (Vintage and Lachicotte) merged back in 2012.

How Homes Sell

The marketing Lachicotte does to promote your home has only one purpose, to increase awareness among potential buyers leading to in person showings. Once buyers reach your front door, the job of marketing is over. Your home must now compete with other homes in two areas: Features and Price If your home has more features that appeal to buyers or your home is priced lower than comparable homes, your home will stand out as the better value. Conversely, if your home lacks the features that potential buyers desire, your only option is to compete on price. To be effective, your home should stand out as one of the top two to three best values in your immediate market place.
