So you're ready to sell your home? Congratulations! Let me take a look at it and make some recommendations. Together, we'll go over a preparation list and discuss how to make your home "show room" ready. This is the time to declutter and understand that "Less is More". This step is important and will help you get the highest sale price possible! We'll also talk about a marketing strategy and fees.
Now that I have seen your home, I will prepare a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) to determine the value of it. This is done by using my Broker's valuation tools. Real Estate One is Michigan's largest Real Estate company and they have excellent valuation tools to properly value your home. During this step, I will calculate a good faith estimate on what you will receive at closing.
You're happy with your valuation, my marketing strategy and fees. You're also ready to prepare the home as we discussed in step 1. Let's get this party started! There's a lot to do in the next couple of days before we put the sign out front. We'll need to sign documents, order professional photography and continue with that preparation list. While this is all being done, I'm going to pre-market your home. Who knows, maybe we'll have it sold on the first day??
Showings and Open Houses, the dreaded but necessary step in selling a home. Ugh! My goal is to get you through this step as quickly as possible. If you read my Bio, you heard me say there is a strategy in selling homes. It starts with listing your home on a specific day of the week followed up with an Open House. We will meet in person to go over marketing strategy.
Congratulations! You got an offer, maybe two or even three. Consider this; how long was your home on the market? Is it cash or financed? When do you need to be out? What other conditions go with the offer? Is your head spinning? It should be but I'll scrub the offer(s) and present them to you in a simple fashion. There's probably an expiration period so we'll respond timely but what works best for you is how we'll negotiate. When all parties agree, you sign on the dotted line and no more showings.
A fully executed Purchase Agreement usually takes 30 days for buyers and sellers to do their due diligence. I will keep our side real organized so we stay on track and on schedule. Get ready for an emotional roller coaster but know that I am with you every step of the way. It won't be long before all the boxes are checked you hand over your keys for a big fat check. Congratulations, your home is SOLD!
