Selling your home is a complex, multi-step process that calls for the expertise of a realtor. There are many things you’ll need to consider and Tammy and Jerry are here to help you through it. Here is a general overview on what to expect and prepare.
Get Your Finances in Order
Don’t worry if you’re still paying off your mortgage, there are several options depending on what type of mortgage you have. However, you’ll need to talk to your lender before you can proceed.
Working with Us
As an important partner we hope to have you feel completely comfortable with us. Don’t fall for the trap of someone who suggests the highest asking price. We can help you price your home to sell. Let our in-depth knowledge of the market and years of experience work for you.
Listing Your Home
Pricing your home too low or too high is not an option. Setting a fair price will attract more potential buyers, and give your home more exposure. We will be able to explain to you the multitude of factors influencing pricing, including: competitive pricing, current market stats, and of course the estimated value of your home.
Marketing and Promotion
The next step will be to sign a Listing Agreement, which gives us permission to post your property on MLS (Multiple Listing Service). We can then begin marketing your home through a variety of mediums — digital and traditional — and inform other realtors (representing buyers) that your property is on the market. We can also help you prepare your home for staging.
After the hard work of marketing and promoting your home pays off, you’ll hopefully have a few offers on the table. Once you’ve accepted an offer, your buyer will want to conduct a home inspection and (potentially) negotiate the cost of any repairs. Finally, we will walk you through the paperwork and legal bits needed to close. Your attorney can also help in this process.
Congratulations! With the sale of your home complete, you can now begin looking for a new place.
