What to expect while preparing your home to sell?

First impressions mean a lot. We take the time to walk through your home and point out any things that might stand out. We discuss the unique features and repairs that set your home apart from the rest and offer any suggestions to help get your home in the best "sell" shape possible. We will prepare a CMA (comparative market analysis) which will provide a snapshot of how homes are currently selling in your area. Based on the information we find out we will come up with a pricing strategy for your home. During this time we will talk about a pre-listing inspection, offer our staging consultation and schedule your home to be photographed by one of our professional photographers.

Phase 2

Activate your listing and get the word out!

Photos are uploaded into your online listing and we have finalized all the legal required paperwork. The for sale sign is placed in your front yard, lock box is set and we are ready to get the word out. I will personally canvass your neighborhood to let them know that your home is about to hit the market. This will create some buzz and give your neighbors the first opportunity to spread the word to any friends or family that are looking to get into the area. On Listing Day your home will go active in the CVRMLS which will automatically feed to real estate websites such as Realtor.com, Zillow and Redfin to name a few. We will finalize your multi-channel marketing plan - focusing on a targeted reach with high frequency to keep the momentum going. Your home will have it's very own customized website making it easy to market and share across multiple platforms.

Phase 3

Managing all your showings.

When a buyer is interested in seeing your property, their agent either submits a showing request through SHOWING TIME, the MLS scheduler, or will call me directly. I'll provide you with access to SHOWING TIME as well, so you can directly confirm the time is good for you. During this process you will want to be sure to maintain a tidy and well-maintained home so your home is shown in the best light possible. I'll continue to market your listing to my entire network of Long & Foster agents, keeping the listing front and center. We will schedule Open Houses as needed and I will provide at a minimum weekly checkins, although I am always available.

Phase 4

Managing offers and getting to closing.

Negotiating offers and managing the listing to close is what this phase is all about. Once you have accepted an offer, your home is termed as "under contract" or "pending". We will schedule the termite inspection and the buyers will schedule the general inspection. We will continue to walk you through the paperwork steps, advising you of everything you need to know to complete all the legal requirements and help to coordinate the connections between all parties. You will sign all your documents 3-4 days prior to closing day. Once the buyers have signed, the new deed will be recorded and funds will be dispersed. Congratulations, you made it!
