8 STEPS IN SELLING YOUR HOME:
In general, these will be the Major Steps for selling your home:
When you are ready to put your home on the market, I'd like to come by at least a week or so in advance and do a "walk through" with you, giving you tips on how to "stage" your home and anything we need to do to make it more "showable".
Around that time, I will also provide you with an updated market analysis, and we can decide our pricing strategy for the current market conditions. In addition, we will go over the marketing plan for your home.
We will determine the date you want to put it on the market, and sign the paperwork.
Once we put it on the market, there is a ton of marketing that gets started, including virtual tours/photos, magazine ads, a HUGE internet presence, mail outs, etc...
Then we listen to the market to see if there will be a buyer out there that will be interested. During tough market conditions I will make recommendations to position yourself to the best possibility to get your home sold, and for a good price.
After we get an offer, it will be a process of analyzing the pros/cons of the terms, determining our counter - and eventual final agreement.
There is an involved process of coordinating the closing, which includes appraisal, inspections, quotes and repairs, loan approval, survey, title work, etc...
Finally, you close on the sale, and collect your check, which will include paying off your mortgage(s), closing costs, and realtor fees. An estimate of the sum of those fees will depend on the final sales price, but I can give you a pretty good estimate in the beginning.
