Six Steps to Selling Your Home


Selling your home can be a hefty task. To get you started, I have outlined most of the key steps to selling your home. I am here to help you through the process. With these six simple steps you will have your house market-ready in no time!

It is important to find out what your current home is worth in the today's market.
Price goes a long way in determining how quickly a home will sell. Together we will review the free, custom "Competitive Market Analysis," or CMA, that I will prepare just for the sale of your home. This is a great tool that gives us insight into comparable home sales, and it will help determine the best price to list the home so that it sells promptly. I will be able to expertly assess your home’s current value so your return will be optimized.

Make those home repairs!
In today’s busy market many home buyers are looking for a move-in-ready home. What does this mean for you, the seller? Fix and clean up those items or areas around your home that need improvement to maximize your home's exterior curb appeal and interior charm. One of the best things you can do to help sell your home quickly is prepare your home to make a great first impression. I can work with you to help identify what should be a priority.

Get your home under warranty.
By providing an initial warranty the buyer can feel confident and worry-free about buying your home. In addition, this helps you as the seller, in an instance should anything major occur while the home is on the market to sell. As your agent I can help you determine which warranty plan is right for you with our RealtySouth Warranty program.

Teamwork makes the dream work!
As your Realtor, it is my top priority to sell your home quickly and for the best price. I have a marketing plan ready to go, and with my large network of agents on hand, the home will be noticed immediately. We need to take all offers seriously. You may accept, negotiate or reject an offer. If you have multiple offers you do not have to accept the higher offer as some terms in another offer may be more important to you. We will work to fulfill your needs. There is a lot to consider, together we will identify the best path for you.

Be ready for a few things after the sale is final.
Make the right calls. Notify your phone company, utility companies, moving company, post office, newspaper and magazines, friends and family that you are moving. If you are also purchasing home, remember to transfer your services over to your new home.

Pack and move!
You are ready to start making memories in your new home. At the end of the day, home selling is really about determining your priorities and which selling strategy will help accomplish those goals. Here at RealtySouth, we are professionally trained, licensed and experienced - all making me ready to help make this process as easy as possible for my sellers.
