Steps in Selling Your Home
Selling your home can be stressful experience for many and consists with many moving parts. As your REALTOR®, my role is to work on your behalf to reduce the stress on you and handle all the details for you. I view this Guide to Selling your home as a process consisting of 6 manageable steps.
The first step in the process is to select the right agent to represent your interests and help you achieve your goals. As your agent, I will begin with a thorough strategic analysis, seeking first to understand your goals, constraints, and timeline. Not only will Mark manage each step of the process, but with a custom project plan built specific to your sale and constant communication, he will make sure you understand each step and are ready for the next.
Getting your home ready to sell can feel like a daunting prospect – from pricing it right, to deciding and coordinating repairs, de-cluttering and staging, to taking professional photos, and much more. But do not fret. Leveraging my extensive network, deep knowledge of buyer behavior and preferences, and positive can do perspective, Mark will guide you through each piece of the puzzle.
Buyers today are savvy and discerning online searchers. That’s why Mark makes sure to get everything done right in the planning stage so your home is shown online and in-person in the best possible light. I will maximize your exposure on popular websites, social media channels, as well as personal promotion. I will also give you practical tips to keep your home clean and ready for showings as well as keep you fully informed on marketing activity and showing feedback.
When the offers starting coming in, your emotions can get the best of you. Indeed, this is what you’ve been building toward and it is an exciting time. But it’s also the time when you have to keep calm and carry on. Remember your goals and trust in your agent. With Mark at your side, fiercely negotiating to get you the best deal, you are in good hands.
The period between signing the contract (yes!) and getting through due diligence (ugh!) are possibly the most stressful and precarious weeks in the entire process. Mark will coordinate with the buyer’s agent, lender, and the closing attorney to make sure everything from the appraisal to the inspection (and any necessary repairs and/or renegotiation), to securing the buyer’s funds gets done on time and as painlessly as possible.
With due diligence behind you (whew!), the final step in the process is when everything comes together – and this period moves at the speed of light. From packing and moving, cleaning and utility cut-off, to the final walk-through, Mark will stay on top of every detail and guide you to the finish line. Sitting down with you at the closing table and helping you move on to your next step is the reason Mark has been trusted as a REALTOR® for over 15 years.
