THE HOME SELLING PROCESS

As you prepare to sell your home, we have prepared a simplified step-by-step guide on how the home selling process works. You can refer to this throughout your home selling journey to guide you each step of the way, from now to closing day.

 


STEP 1. FIND YOUR AGENT

Meet with a knowledgeable real estate Agent and discuss your needs, examine your agent-prepared Comparative Market Analysis (CMA), identify your selling goals, know your costs and responsibilities, set a listing price, and sign a listing agreement.

STEP 2. PREPARE YOUR HOME

View your home through the eyes of a buyer and make changes to its current state as needed. This may include: deep cleaning, decluttering, re-painting, staging, and making necessary repairs.

STEP 3. MARKETING

Professional pictures and videos of your home will be taken for the listing. All online marketing, social media campaigns, signage and flyers needed to promote your listing will also be prepared.

STEP 4. LISTINGS & SHOWINGS

Your home will officially launch on the market, so be prepared and prepare your home for showings. Feedback will be requested from every real estate agent and your agent will host open houses.

STEP 5. RECIEVE AN OFFER

Your real estate Agent will present any offers and help you understand the terms of each offer. Together, you will evaluate and discuss how to move forward on each offer received.

STEP 6. NEGOTIATIONS

Depending on the offers you receive, you may want to negotiate an aspect (or many) of the contract. Your real estate agent will work to negotiate on your behalf to get you the best deal possible.

STEP 7. UNDER CONTRACT

Once the offer is accepted, the buyer will order an inspection and appraisal. Buyer requests and some negotiations may occur. Contingencies will be waived when the buyer is satisfied.

STEP 8. CLOSING DAY

You will sign closing documents. The buyer will transfer funds and the transfer of ownership from you to the buyer will occur. You will hand over your keys and celebrate selling your home!
