Important Steps in the Home Selling Process:

Step 1: Create a Marketing Plan
Step 2: Setting the Price
Step 3: Showing Your Home
Step 4: Protecting Yourself
Step 5: Making the Deal

Step 1: Create a Marketing Plan

Create a marketing plan for your home that will help distinguish it in your local marketplace and attract buyers to your property. This may include print advertising, posting your listing on the Internet, holding an open house and more.

Step 2: Setting the Price

A key part of the marketing plan is setting the list price. If a home is priced too low, it may cost you money. If a home is priced too high, potential buyers may be scared away. To determine the best asking price review the cost of recently sold homes, evaluate the competition and study marketplace trends. I will provide you with a current comparative market analysis.

Step 3: Showtime!

Now it’s time to get your home ready for the spotlight. I recommend you start with a good cleaning, then eliminate any clutter, add a fresh coat of paint and tidy up the yard. I will provide you with some additional tips that can help boost a home’s curb appeal and impress potential buyers once they’re in the door.

One way to make a home more attractive is to purchase a Home Protection Plan. This insurance protects you, the seller, from paying repair or replacement costs of major items during the listing period. It also protects the buyer during their first year of homeownership.

In addition, I will make sure you are aware of all the federal, state, and local disclosure laws.

Step 4: Protecting Yourself

In some cases, a home sale can also be an invitation for danger. Here are some steps to make the process safer.

Ask for identification
Ask for pre-approval letters,
Lock up and hide collectibles and valuables
Remember “For Sale” signs bring in buyers. Do not allow your children to open doors to strangers.
If you have pets, make sure they are controlled
Remove any dangerous items
We will talk in detail about using a lock box and making appointments also additional safety tips to help protect you and your family.

Step 5: Making the Deal

A buyer has made an offer – now it is time to negotiate. You can rely on me to guide you through this process I will help you arrive at an acceptable price, terms and conditions. Once you have accepted an offer, my team at Premium Properties will help keep the deal together by meeting deadlines and criteria, including home inspections, appropriate buyer visits, scheduled deposits and other steps. In fact, during this period there may be a renegotiation of the accepted offer price depending on the outcomes of these visits.

When we finally arrive at the closing table, once the money has exchanged hands and all the papers signed it’s time to hand over the keys and concentrate on your next big project – getting your NEW home in order.

I would love to help you find your next home too!
