Getting Started

The first time we meet, we will discuss what your selling objectives are. This is a good time to ask questions, and I will give you an idea of what to expect during the home selling process. We will discuss preliminary ideas for pricing and house preparations and I will review a detailed Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) for your property with you.

You're ready to Sell Your Home

Once you decide that you are ready to make a move, we will confirm the important details such as pricing, the best features of your home, your preferred closing date, showing instructions, and so forth. Then we will review and sign a standard Listing Agreement.

Preparing Home/Property

Before putting your home on the market, we want to ensure it will be attractive to potential buyers. Knowing how to showcase and accentuate the best features of your home, without incurring unnecessary expense, is at the core of what I do. I will provide you with a detailed Home Preparation Consultation and a Selling Tips Sheet. As we walk through your property, we will discuss minor repairs, curb appeal tips, staging, and making your property feel welcoming to potential buyers. If staging is necessary, I will share some options based on your property. We have a list of reputable and very reasonable contractors for painting, flooring, etc.. at our disposal to help you prepare your home for sale. 

Determining List Price

Pricing your home competitively, at the start, will create more activity among real estate brokers and buyers and lead to a more successful sale with more money in your pocket. In a Seller's market, when priced correctly and marketed properly we can generate multiple offers from interested Buyers and create a bidding war for your property. 

Establishing the value and list price for your property involves researching and comparing similar properties and weighing important factors such as location, condition, amenities, and market conditions. We will discuss the different pricing strategies and arrive at a competitive price aimed at generating strong buyer activity and the highest sale price. 

Marketing Your Home

Understanding where buyers come from allows me to market your property effectively. Creating excitement in the marketplace through consistent and aggressive marketing efforts and integrating online and offline marketing is the key to a successful sale. I will remain in constant communication with you and give you feedback from all showings and activity. We will continue to aggressively market your home until it is sold!

Processing the Sale

The complexities of processing transactional documents will be made very easy for you through my continuous guidance and communication. I will review all offers and the terms of each offer with you and negotiate on your behalf so that you obtain the highest possible price for your home while limiting your exposure and protecting your bests interests. 

Once your home is sold I will provide you with a list of items that need to be taken care of prior to the closing date. Communication between us is imperative and I can assure you that you will be informed every step of the way.

Closing Date

Congratulations, you have now sold your home! I will provide you with helpful moving hints and also be there to answer any questions. I am always available to help you should a question arise after the closing, even if you have a question or need some guidance several years after the closing. I am always here to help you in any way that I can.
