Selling Process and Guide

Step 1 – Selling Preparation & Home Evaluation
Selling a home starts with contact me. Once you have contacted me, I will get as much information about your property as I can and set up a time to evaluate your home and/or have our first meeting. If I am familiar with your home type and area, I should be able to gather a fair bit of data and prepare a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) before we meet. If you have a custom home, I may need to have a quick meeting to see the property and evaluate the homes worth.

Step 2 – In Person Meeting
Upon completing our CMA, we will schedule a sit-down meeting. This can happen at the home or at my office. We will review the CMA, establish a listing price, provide a list of required selling documents, go through my selling process and Marketing Plan of Action Checklist, discuss my fees and closing costs, and answer any of your questions.

Step 3 – Preparing Your Property and Listing Launch
Getting your home ready for the market is the most important step. Making a great first impression really counts here. This includes completing renovation/repairs, cleaning, decluttering, staging, photography, measurements, floor plans, marketing, preparing for an open house, and so on. The Preparing Your Property for a Quicker Sale Checklist will help you cover most of the preparation tasks.

Step 4 – Open Houses and Showings
Your home is now a show-home and making sure your home is very clean and tidy during every showing can put thousands of dollars back into your pocket. It is true that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. We will work around your schedule to make showings as convenient as possible for everyone. I will personally attempt to collect showing feedback.

Step 5 – Strategy Assessment, Offers, Negotiations, & Closing
After a couple weeks on the market, we should have enough feedback to assess the marketing strategy and it may be time to make some adjustments. Once a buyer has expressed their interest, their next step is to make an offer and fulfill the terms and conditions. I will ensure to negotiate the maximum amount for your property in the shortest possible time. The offer will become a legally binding contract.
  Step 6 – Possession
Congratulations! The home is SOLD! Now it is time to prepare for possession. I will help make your move as smooth as possible by providing checklists and trusted movers.
