When it comes time to sell your home, actually listing your property in the MLS is only one of the steps in the overall process. There are many other things that will need to be done, and your agent should be your primary resource for information, tips, and tricks related to selling your home.
Initially, the firm will prepare a Comparative Market Analysis to help you get a sense of what your home is worth. This looks at your neighboring properties to find a general idea of the neighborhood. Each home is unique though so a walkthrough of the property along with an owner history is important for a full valuation to be completed. There are also many relatively inexpensive things you can do to add value to your home so we can discuss possible upgrades or design changes to the property.
As you make the decision to work with Steele Residential, our agents will work with to create a marketing plan and set a final price of your home. With a great marketing plan in place, and your home priced correctly, you should expect to start showing your home quickly as it is listed in MLS.
Upon entering into a contract with a prospective buyer, there are additional things to consider, such as the property inspection and seller financing. Your agent's job is to guide you thorugh each of these steps with full confidence.
The selling process leads to the closing, when ownership of your home transfers to the new owners.
All of this might seem daunting, but with Steele Residential at your side, you can expect guidance and satisfaction. Forget daunting. Contact our firm today and let's get started!
