Get Your House Ready to Sell

  • When considering how to sell your house, start by identifying and completing any repairs your property may need.  The buyer will most likely hire a professional inspector to inspect you property for damages and potential problems.  Identifying problem areas and recommending fixes based on your financial goals is part of Stacy’s listing responsibilities.

  • Evaluate whether or not your home needs updating to receive a good offer.  Stacy can help you look at other homes in your neighborhood.  If all the current listings or recently sold listings have granite countertops, solid wood floors, and other current updates, it will be in your best interest to add those things to your home as well.  If other homes on the market are offering upgrades while yours does not, the chances are high that your home will be on the market for a while and eventually receive offers much lower than you prefer.  For the best results, meet with Stacy to get advice on which upgrades will have the best impact.

  • Make it look new.  Throughout the years your home has taken a good amount of abuse and the goal is to take out the wear and tear make it look fresh again.  This involves touching up the paint, shampooing carpets, touching up baseboards, adding fresh mulch, trimming bushes and general cleaning every room in the house.  Stacy can help you re-invigorate your home affordably and, if needed, provide a professional stager to help arrange your home for an amazing presentation to homebuyers.

List Your House with a Realtor

  • Congratulations, you’ve already completed the first task – You found a great realtor!

  • Come up with a good list of questions for Stacy, here are some examples:

    • Do you hire a professional photographer to take pictures?

    • Do you use a professional showing service or are you responsible for coordinating all of your showings?

    • What type of lockboxes are used?

    • Do you have online reviews and a strong online presence?

    • Where are you advertising my listing and what do you offer that other agents do not?

  • Think carefully about the price that you want to list your property at.  Get comparable sold properties from me and ask my advice. The challenge is to find the right price that will sell your house fast, but not leave any money on the table.  Statistically, the longer a home is on the market, the lower the offer the seller(s) will receive.  Once your house has been on the market for a couple of months , buyers will know that you are worn down and are more desperate to get rid of your home.

  • Finally, make sure you keep your home presentable and ready for showings.  I’ve shown many homes to homebuyers over the years and I’m always surprised at how many of them are dirty and not ready to be shown when I get there.  Above all,  make sure your home smells good and is clean.  Set up the home for showing and make it feel like a home as soon as they walk in the front door.

Get Your House Sold!

  • Once you have your home listed you will start receiving offers.  It’s important to wait for the right offer.  Don’t get too excited over the first offer that comes along.  The down payment amount, loan type and pre-approval letter are very important parts of the offer.  There are a multitude of reasons why deals to fall through, including: buyers needing closing cost, buyers with limited cash in the bank, etc…  These are all things to consideration and I will assist with negotiating all of these potential issues to ensure you are receiving a strong contract that has the greatest possibility of closing within your timeframe.

  • Constant communication.  My guarantee to you is that all necessary parties involved with getting you to the table; buyer’s agent, mortgage lender, title company, appraiser, etc… are all adhering to their responsibilities to meet your goals.  We will check in with each other on a regular basis throughout this phase.

  • When you come to the table bring your photo ID (driver’s license, passport, etc…), along with keys, garage door openers, appliance documentation (if applicable), repairs receipts and any other relevant items we discuss.

  • Once the buyers sign their documents, the title company will forward the docs to the lender and if everything was done properly, the loan will fund within a couple of hours and you will receive the funds from the closing.

This is a very basic walk-through of the home selling process as a reference – not all inclusive.  I will be able to help you navigate the process with confidence, and will get the best price for your home within the least amount of time on the market.
