The Home Selling Process
1. Contact us early
So you’re ready to sell your home! The first step is to contact our team to guide you through the process. We can provide practical tips to prepare your home for market, as well as expert marketing techniques to bring maximum attention to your listing.
2. Know what your home is worth
What is your home worth? Let our experience and knowledge of today’s market help determine the asking price for your property. There are many factors that affect price: location, amenities, supply and demand, and local competition.
3. Market your home
Getting buyers through the door. Our team is ready to maximize exposure of your home on many platforms. We’ll ensure that your property is considered by as many buyers as possible with stealth marketing, open houses, and networking.
4. Evaluate each offer
The offers come rolling in! When offers are presented, we’ll be there to negotiate the terms and conditions of sale. We’ll help you understand all documents that will specify what exactly the buyer is offering, including:
- The amount the buyer is willing to pay
- The financing terms the buyer will be obtaining
- Closing and occupancy dates
- Contingencies such as mortgage, inspections, repairs, surveys, lead paint, septic, termite, etc..
- Personal property included or NOT included in the sale
- Further negotiations if the offer is unacceptable to you
5. Sign a contract
We have a contract. Once our team has negotiated acceptable terms and conditions on your behalf, a copy of the fully executed contract is distributed to all parties. We will inform you of any immediate steps for you to take. From contract to closing, we’ll be there every step of the way.
6. Be careful at the closing
The closing is a formal meeting where all paperwork is signed and distributed, thus executing the sale. Deeds, loan and tax documents are prepared and collected by the title agency to be recorded at the local government office. One of our team members will attend with you and help answer questions.
