Steps to Selling a Home
We will meet with you to discuss your selling motivations and timelines. We walk through your home, taking note of its best features and improvements that could maximize its value. We will also provide resources for any trusted professionals to prepare the home to show its best. We will review a comparative market analysis showing recent home sales, active competition and pending properties in your neighborhood so you have expert price guidance based on facts. We will recommend a target list price and a marketing plan for how to get it.
We want to give your home the perfect debut when going live on the market. We will provide a professional stager to prepare the home if needed. Jaw dropping photography, video, drone and 3-D tours are also used to showcase any special features that the property may have. During our consultation we will discuss an open house strategy, share examples of all print materials from high quality brochures, multiple periodicals that feature our listings. We will share the online and social media exposure your listing will have to bring your listing to all buyers relocation from overseas or out of the area.
Once we have an offer in hand, we will let potential buyers and agents know to act fast with a "Last Call", which can lead to multiple offers and a higher sale price. We then will review the offer points with you and give you an estimated closing cost worksheet based on the details of the offer. Once reviewed we will decide the best course of action. Keep in mind negotiating is your agent's strongest suit so allowing them to give you guidance based on all the details will be important. It is always our goal to get you the highest and best price for your property.
The buyer will order and pay for inspections during their option period. They may also attend the inspections and be in the home for several hours while this process takes place. Your Agent stays on the case through the entire pending process. The buyer may request some items be addressed or repaired and at that time we will discuss and review the report and decide what the best course of action is. Upon agreeing to any needed items the buyer's lender will order the appraisal at the buyer's cost. Once the appraisal is completed and value is confirmed to meet contract price we proceed to the closing process.
The buyer will schedule a final walk through prior to closing at which time the property will need to be vacant and clean unless you have a lease back agreement. Once we receive all final figures for your closing statement and your agent has approved them we will review and explain them prior to your signing. The buyer will sign their portion of closing documents and once their loan has funded we will hand over the keys and access to them. The property is no longer yours at this point and you can cancel your homeowners insurance and move to the next chapter!
