Let’s Market Your Home
01: What Are the First Steps in Selling Your Home
Our goal is to help you sell your home for top dollar in a reasonable amount of time. First, we’ll talk about what your selling objectives are. This is the best time to ask us any questions about the process. We’ll discuss how to prepare your house and get it ready for prospective buyers. We will go over pricing based on a comprehensive marketing plan that includes a thorough Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of similar homes in your area.
02: Now It’s Time To Sell
As soon as you decide that you are ready to move forward with selling your home, we will review and sign a standard Listing Agreement. At this time we will also complete all of the mandatory disclosure forms to finalize the listing. The next step in the process is to do a walk through of your house and we will arrange any necessary inspections so that there are no surprises going forward.
03: Get Your House and Property Ready
There are a lot of things to consider before putting your house on the market. The goal is to attract lots of qualified, potential buyers so your home must be prepared in order to stand out in today’s market. Our detailed Home Preparation Consultation along with our Selling Tips form will help you in putting your home’s “best foot” forward. Our walk though will go over minor repairs as well as curb appeal so that potential buyers will feel welcome as soon as they open the door. We will discuss how to show off the best features of your home without breaking your budget.
04: How To Decide on the Price
How do you decide on a list price for your home? First, it must be competitive, right from the beginning, in order to attract more prospective, qualified buyers and the attention of other real estate brokers who will be showing your home.
In order to determine the value and best list price for your home, many factors such as the location, house condition, amenities, recent neighbourhood sales and the current real estate market must be considered. After weighing all of these, we will confirm a price that is competitive and will attract lots of potential buyers.
05: Let’s Market Your Home
In order to create excitement for buyers, we utilize a variety of marketing efforts including both online and offline methods to ensure that your property gets consistent marketing to ensure a successful sale. Our aggressive marketing plan includes internet marketing through all major sites like Realtor.com, Zillow.com, Truila.com and many others.
We also make sure that your property has advertised open houses for both the public and other brokers. We provide a property feature sheet along with a colourful yard sign to attract potential buyers. We also utilize specialized property marketing and e-mails to the sales agent network in your area. We will be in communication with you to provide progress reports on showings and activity on your home.
06: Due Diligence
One of the biggest requirements during the sale process is the home inspection. This step is required in order for your buyers to secure a mortgage, should they require financing for their purchase. A certified home inspector will provide your buyers with a report on the overall condition of your property. One of our team members will be available as your representative during this process and communicate any issues arising from the inspection that we will need to remedy if anything.
Our continuous guidance and communication will help you through the complexities of processing transactional documents. We will review all offers and terms of each offer with you, and negotiate on your behalf so that you receive the highest possible price for your home, and limit your exposure to risk.
Once your home is in escrow, we will make sure you are fully prepared and communicate every step of the way through the escrow process with you. This includes preparing all the seller required disclosures and reports, attending an appraisal with recent comparable sales and working with you to remove any contingencies from the sale. Communication between us is key during this part of the sale.
Congratulations on selling your home! After the close of escrow, one of our team members will be more than happy to be your point person for anything that you want to ask about. We are always available to help if a question arises. We will provide you with helpful moving hints should you require assistance. We want to make sure you’re completely satisfied with the process, so feel free to contact us with any concerns or questions after the sale is complete.
