Getting Started

The first time we meet, we will discuss what your selling objectives are. This is a good time to ask questions, and I will give you an idea of what to expect during the selling process. We will discuss preliminary ideas for pricing and house preparations. I will provide you with a complete Comparative Marketing Analysis (CMA) for your property.

Determining Market Value

You're ready to Sell Your Home

Once you decide you are ready, we will review and sign a standard Listing Agreement. We will also complete all of the mandatory disclosure forms. I will arrange for any necessary inspections.

Preparing Home/Property

Before putting your home on the market, we want to ensure it is most attractive to potential buyers. Knowing how to showcase and accentuate the best features of your home, without incurring unnecessary expenses, is what we know how to do. We will provide you with a detailed Home Preparation Consultation and a Selling Tips Sheet. As we walk through your property, we will discuss minor repairs, curb appeal tips, staging, and making your property feel welcoming to potential buyers. If staging is necessary, we will share some options based on your property.

Determining List Price

Pricing your home competitively, at the start, will create more activity among brokers and buyers and lead to a more faster, successful sale. 

Establishing the value and list price for your property involves researching and comparing similar properties and weighing factors including location, condition, amenities, and market conditions. We will arrive at a competitive price aimed at generating strong buyer activity.

Marketing Your Home

Understanding where buyers come from allows me to market your property competitively. Creating excitement in the marketplace through consistent and aggressive marketing efforts and integrating online and offline efforts is key to a successful sale. My maximum exposure marketing plan includes: Comprehensive Internet marketing through our site, Realtor.com, Zillow.com, Trulia.com, Yahoo.com and dozens of others. 

Also, public open houses & broker open houses, yard signage, and property feature sheet; local newspaper ads; sales agent network; and customized property marketing. We will remain in constant communication with you and give you progress reports on showings and all activity.

Processing the Sale & Closing

The complexities of processing transactional documents will be made very easy for you through our continuous guidance and communication. We will review all offers and terms of each offer with you and negotiate on your behalf so that you obtain the highest possible price for your home while limiting your exposure and protecting your bests interests. 

Once your home is in escrow we will prepare all seller required disclosures and reports, attend an appraisal with recent comparables to support the purchase price, and make sure all contingencies and repair requests are removed in a timely manner per the contract. Communication between us is imperative and we can assure you that you will be informed every step of the way.
