The Selling Process

If you’re in the market to sell, it’s probably time to clean house. Literally. Selling a home requires preparation, patience; and in most cases, good-old-fashioned elbow grease. These are some suggestions to help sell your home in the least amount of time at a price you will be happy with!

Representation
The job of a full-service Real Estate Agent is to represent your best interests through every step of the sales process. We will listen to your needs and keep you up-to-date throughout the entire process. We understand the market in which you are selling your home and can give you suggestions to help your home sell quicker.

Price
Determining the right price is hands-down the most important part of achieving the highest return in the least amount of time. There are a lot of factors that go into determining a home’s market value such as the sales price of nearby homes that have recently sold, the listing price of similar homes that are currently on the market; as well as, the condition and location of a home. In order to arrive at the best price, we will help you understand what your home is worth – and why.
 

Prep Work
First impressions are key when selling a home, so before the ‘for sale’ sign goes up, put in the time to make sure it’s in great condition. Fresh paint, clean closets, and cheery flowers – there’s a lot you can do to make your home look like a million bucks!

Marketing Your Home
We will show you our Marketing Plan to help sell your home.  Today, the vast majority of Home Buyers use the Internet in their home search, so your marketing plan should include focused, online activities, in addition to print advertising and open houses.

Home Showings
Showings are an inconvenient yet necessary part of the home selling process. When your home is on the market it has the potential to be shown at any time, so it's important to maintain a certain level of cleanliness; clear dishes from the sink, make beds, put away dirty laundry, and vacuum/dust regularly. It's also a good idea to leave or go outside during showings; it makes buyers uncomfortable to tour a home when the owners are in the next room - so, for the sake of your sale, vacate your home for showings.

 

           We will guide you through the Sale Process from before the sign, 'For Sale', goes up to after it's Sold and Settled!
