Below are the essential steps that are involved in selling your home. Always feel free to reach out to us as a resource for any assistance or to answer any questions that you may have.
Step 1: Prepare your home
It is important that you prepare your home for sale. Decluttering and removing any unnecessary items is a great place to start. Next, clean the home from top to bottom including closets as organized storage areas can appear larger. Finish the process by staging. Rearrange your existing furniture so that it shows off the space best. Add flowers to your landscaping or pots by the front steps to make the home warm and inviting. Maintaining your home in this condition throughout the whole process is important to make a great impression on all buyers.
Step 2: Determine the list price of your home
Many factors like market conditions, comparables, interest rates and your home’s location and condition will influence 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
Arguably the most complicated part of the sales process comes when you get an offer. Whether you have one or several to consider, we can assist you with advice for a strategy to achieve your goals.
Step 4: Planning your move
Once you have accepted an offer and the home inspection has been conducted, then you can begin your next stage in planning your move. The good news is much of the cleaning, organizing and decluttering has already been done prior to listing the home for sale. Now you can begin scheduling movers as you prepare for your next chapter.
