2. Determine Market Value Based On Recent Comparables.

We will start by doing a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) to show you what your home is worth in the current market. Based on recent sales and trends this will better assist us with determining the right price for your home, as this is a important step in the listing process. List it too high and it sits for too long on the market, potentially costing you precious time and the highest and best price for your property, list it right and you will have a flood of buyers fighting over it.

3. Assess Your Homes Condition And Go Over Needed Repairs!

I will Develop a personalized marketing strategy for your property including a coming soon campaign, strong organic SEO, social media and sponsored paid ads to promote your property to the widest possible audience and bring in the most potential Buyers and offers.

6. Showings

Now that we have your home looking like a star it will be listed on the market for sale, real estate agents can call to set up a showing for your home at anytime. Maintaining your home in constant show-ready condition can be difficult, particularly if you have pets and children.

Make sure to make the home feel inviting to prospective Buyers, Keep the home at a comfortable temperature, turn all the lights on and open up blinds and curtains. 

Sometimes showings happen at inconvenient times. So be prepared to tidy up in a hurry. Be sure to pick up items such as cups, clothing, dog toys and beds, and anything else left lying around. If you take the steps to ensure your house  shows well you will be rewarded by good offers.

Be sure to eliminate temptation. Remove valuable items such as jewelry, cash, and collectables to a safe location. It is also important to store your prescription medicine and private financial documents securely.   

 Potential buyers can’t tour your home without a licensed agent present. It’s important that the interested Buyers see the home freely and without the homeowners present as they can often feel rushed if the seller is present this can potentially deter them from offering.

 7. Negotiation

Upon receiving offers, I will negotiate with the buyer’s agent to reach an acceptable agreement for both parties. I will help you understand all of the ups and downsides of each offer we receive. After we talk, I will handle the negotiating and prepare all the paperwork. The offer will contain contingencies and be subject to a home inspection, so during this period, you will need to be able to let their home inspector visit your home for a few hours to conduct their inspections. 

Their offer may also contain a financing contingency; in that case, the bank’s appraiser will need to come out to assess your home as well. I will handle all of the scheduling and assist with providing them access to your home. Another piece of negotiations may include doing repairs based on the inspector’s findings. 

We will negotiate with the buyers until we reach an acceptable agreement for both parties if repairs are needed. In the case of repairs, you would need to have the agreed-upon items repaired or offer money-back depending on the agreement. Upon final walkthrough, the buyer will inspect the home to ensure the repairs have been made.

8. Contingency Periods

Now that we have a contract on the house, we have to get through the contingency periods of the agreement. This can include many little steps that will vary for every home. The most common contingincies are: Inspection, Appraisal, Loan and Sale of home. The buyer will want to do their due diligence during this period, to ensure your home is in an acceptable condition to them.

Here are some of the steps that the buyer will undertake during this period:

Buyers independent Home Inspections.

Possible Radon Testing.

Review Insurance History and pull all applicable covenants and deed restrictions.

Any other documents related to the property.

9. Closing

Finally, the day we have worked hard together to achieve is here! no need to worry about the small details, I’ll take care of them. Before we go to your homes closing I will let you know everything you need to bring and do to ensure a smooth stress free closing.
