Seller's Guide

A Step-by-Step Seller's Guide

Part of what I love the most about this job is getting to meet some amazing people that I wouldn’t have otherwise met. It allows me to become a part of their stories and their memories in a behind-the-scenes way. It’s not easy to pack up a home; a house is more than just four walls, it’s your whole life story. It’s going to be emotional, and that’s okay.


Step one: Understand Why You're Selling

Listening Deeply: I understand that no two clients are alike and I take the time to listen to what you need and provide you with an experience that is custom built for you and your preferences.


Step two: Schedule a Sellers Consultation

I meet with my clients who want to sell their home in order to move to their next phase in life is an important and necessary step. 

This is where I tour your home so I have an accurate understanding of amenities, finishes, age of systems and condition. Next is time researching the comparable properties that have sold and determining a valuation.


Step three: Getting Your Home Ready

Once we have reached consensus on the listing price, it's time to get your home ready for professional photos, videos, and drone footage.

This includes decluttering, removing valuables, taking down personal photos, and generally lightening of closets, and drawers.

Have your home professionally cleaned, including windows!


Step four: Develop a Marketing Strategy

I will develop a marketing strategy that is perfect for capturing your homes story. In addition to staging, professional photography, understanding what you loved about your home will help with crafting its marketing message.

I utilize social media, broker to broker and client networking.


Step five: Evaluate Offers

Receiving an offer is an exciting part of the process, but it doesn’t mean the journey is over. We will evaluate each offer and make sure the party making the offer is prequalified or pre-approved by a mortgage lender and that their offer is acceptable to you. If the offer is too low, you can make a counter-offer or offer other ways to bridge the gap, such as covering some or all of the closing costs, making repairs, adjusting the move-in date, or leaving some appliances or fixtures for the new buyer.


Step six: Escrow, Inspection, & Appraisal

You have accepted an offer and then escrow will be opened. Escrow handles the earnest money, title reports, and closing and recording with the county.

Often the buyer will have the home inspected and repairs are negotiated.

If the buyer is financing the home, the lender will most likely require an appraisal. 


Step Seven: Close

You’ve reached the last step in the seller’s process. When you close on a home you are selling, you are legally transferring ownership of the property to the new buyer. We will meet with the company closing the transaction to sign the final paperwork and go over any issues that have not yet been taken care of. 


Once you have sold your home, you’re entering your next phase in life. Whatever the reason for your life change, having the opportunity to work with you is an honor. I'm with you every step of the way, listening, understanding, and supporting your decisions.
