Steps to Selling Your Home

1. Preparing Your Home For Sale

Preparing your house for sale is not something you need to do alone. First impressions are invaluable, which is why I'm happy to come in and offer suggestions in order to ensure that your home shines in the best possible light to potential buyers. I can also help with staging and bringing in home improvement experts who can perform the work necessary to maximize your home's value. Some key points are:

  • Make sure closets and shelves are organized
  • Ensure that there's as little clutter as possible throughout the home
  • Keep personal photos to a minimum.

Ultimately it's important for sellers to create an environment where prospective buyers can picture themselves living in your home.

2. Assemble Your Local Team

While many homeowners attempt to sell their homes by themselves to avoid commission fees, only experienced sellers will be able to navigate the various steps necessary to maximize your return. With an investment as expensive as a house, trusting an expert seller's agent is a smart move to ensure you receive the highest price possible. More buyers turn to Pinnacle Residential Properties on the web when searching for homes in our local area.

3. Setting Your Price

Now you need to determine the selling price of your home. The value of your home is determined by a variety of factors, including location, current market supply, and condition. The local market is an important factor, and one you cannot control. Value is the bottom line for buyers - finding the price that will entice buyers without underselling your home is tricky, but ultimately one of the most important factors for selling your home.

4. Market Your Home

At Pinnacle Residential Properties we know that our technology reaches all buyers looking for homes in the local area. We also believe that each home is unique and so we work to make sure we are reaching the right buyers for your property. This is all done before we hit the market so that your launch is a strong one on the web and in print. Technology is key and my firm works tirelessly to make sure our listings have a standout presence on the Internet. 

The first two weeks you are on the market is the most critical because that is when your most serious buyers come through the house. That is why it is so important to have top marketing, a solid pricing plan and make sure your home is in top condition. After the listing is put on MLS (Multiple Listings Service) thousands of brokers and their clients will have access to the information about your home.I will hold a broker open house for an hour so that brokers can come into the home and see it for themselves. From there they will call their clients to come in and see the house.

I believe being a good listener is a critical tool for real estate agents. After each showing I will call and report feedback from the buyers/brokers so you stay informed with who is going through your house and how the market is reacting to home. I will also keep you updated on what is happening to the greater market. Feedback is the key to a successful relationship!

5. Sell Your Home!

Once you receive interest in your home the negotiation process begins - you will receive offers and have to make counter offers. I will help you review offers and their legal terms, consider whether the offer is fair based on the local real estate market, and determine what your counter offer will be. This negotiation process is typical but can be fraught with danger for inexperienced sellers because buying agents sometimes use carefully worded legal terms that make an offer seem better than it actually is. My goal is to prevent you from feeling overwhelmed by the process or getting taken advantage of - I will handle all of your negotiations with honesty, respect, and savvy learned from years of experience.

After you agree to a price with the buyer you will sign an Offer to Purchase, which is a legally binding document, with a deposit (usually $1000). Usually within 7-10 business days of an accepted offer a house inspection occurs. Within 10 days of an accepted offer you and the buyer will sign a Purchase and Sales Agreement (P&S) that ensures the sale is on your terms. The initial deposit is usually held by the attorneys or your real estate firm in a savings account until it is released to you at the closing.

6. Closing

Houses usually close 60 days after the accepted offer. Right before the close the buyer will most likely walk through the house to ensure that it is in the same condition as when they last saw it and to ensure that any improvements outlined in the Purchase and Sales Agreement are met.

You deserve the best!

I know that selling a house is a very important process for transitioning homeowners. When selling your home you can consider me a member of your team. I work closely with all of my clients and walk them through the selling process step by step in great detail.
