Below are some of the basic steps that are involved in the process of selling your home. Feel free to utilize me as a resource for any assistance or to answer any questions that you may have.
Step 1: Get your home prepared
It is important that you prepare your home for sale and decluttering is a great place to begin. Next, be sure to clean the home thoroughly including storage areas and closets as organized storage areas appear larger and accommodating. Finish this process with some staging. Rearrange your furniture so that it shows off the space best. Do things like adding flowers to your landscaping or pots by the front steps to make the home as warm and inviting as possible. Maintaining your home throughout the entire process is important to make a great impression on all buyers.
Step 2: Determine the list price of your home
Several things like market conditions, comparables, interest rates and your home’s location and condition will play a role in how much you can ask for price. In some ways home selling is part art, part science, part marketing, and part negotiation. Market comparables will be provided, but it is ultimately the seller that will set the asking price.
Step 3: Negotiating an offer
Perhaps the most complex event during the sales process comes when you receive an offer. Whether you have one offer or many to consider, I can assist you with advice for a strategy to achieve your goals.
Step 4: Planning your move
Once you have accepted and signed an offer and contingencies are complete, you can begin your next stage in planning your move. The good news is the bulk of the cleaning, organizing and decluttering has already been done prior to listing the home for sale. Now you can start organizing movers and details as you prepare for your next chapter.
