    Over the past few months, our team has received a lot of questions about our selling process. Given the apparent interest in this topic, we decided to cover it for you today. Here are the four main steps we follow with each of our sellers:

    1. Order an inspection. The inspection process is designed to find and address any potential issues with the home. It’s important that this process is carried out with the buyer’s perspective in mind, since, ultimately, it’s their opinion that matters most in the deal. However, this doesn’t mean that you need completely gut the home. Simple, strategic repairs will bring more bang for your buck than a total rehaul of the property. In fact, most buyers would prefer to make their own upgrades after moving in.

    2. Determine the home’s value. Correctly pricing the property is one of the most important steps in the entire transaction. To make sure we set a price that’s both fair and effective, our team conducts a comparative market analysis. This analysis essentially involves finding similar properties to yours that have recently sold in the area and then studying that sales data to develop a price for your listing.



    Everything we do is designed to help you earn a great deal for your home.


    3. Assess your goals. We understand that every seller is different. Because of this, we want to make sure that the way we structure your home selling experience matches up with your wants and needs. If you need additional time to close, for example, we can include this into your listing agreement to ensure that need is met. 

    4. Develop a game plan and put it in action. Once we’ve determined what you want from the deal, we can develop a personalized plan and put it into action. This will usually involve scheduling open houses, reaching out to buyers, and other similar activities. Everything we do is designed to help you earn a great deal for your home. 

    If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
