Putting your home on the market can be a stressful process, especially when you don’t know what to expect. Fortunately, with my help and this easy to follow guide, you can smoothly complete the process. Following these steps will help you prepare so you can get organized and sell your home for the best price possible.
What do you want to accomplish with the sale of your home? Do you want to make a certain amount of money that you can put toward a larger or custom home? Do you need to sell it as soon as possible to facilitate a move to a new city or area? I will prepare a comparative market analysis to create the optimal list price. For example, if you need to sell quickly, you might want to price your home lower than if your goal is to make a particular profit margin. Communication is vital so I can adjust your selling price accordingly.
Setting the right price for your home is crucial. If priced correctly from the start, more buyers will show interest. Price it too high, and they might lose interest; too low, and you might miss out on money. With my expertise, I'll help you find that perfect price by looking at similar homes and understanding the current market.
If you've kept your home in showroom condition since you've lived in it, you're in the minority of homeowners. People don't keep their homes in perfect condition. When you decide on a price for your home, you'll need to prepare it for viewers. This means tidying up, removing personal items so viewers can imagine living there, fixing any minor issues, and cleaning it thoroughly to make it look its best.
As your trusted real estate expert, I want to ensure you're clear on the strategy we'll use to market your home:
1. Tailored Marketing Strategy: I will craft a specific marketing plan for showcasing your property. This isn't a one-size-fits-all; it's tailored to highlight your home's unique features.
2. Listing the Home: Your home will be listed on key platforms where potential buyers frequently search.
3. Driving the Right Audience: By using a mix of modern and traditional methods – such as social media campaigns, referrals between agents, mainstream media, and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) – we'll ensure the right buyers find their way to your listing.
4. Focused Campaign: The first few weeks are one of the most critical periods for any property listing. Therefore, I'll launch a robust marketing campaign designed to attract maximum traffic to your listing during the first three weeks of our partnership.
Your home is an asset, and I aim to ensure it's presented to the market in the best light and to the most relevant audience. I'm committed to achieving the best outcome for you.
When we get an offer on your home, it's a great step forward! But we're not done yet. We will evaluate each offer and ensure the party making the offer is prequalified or pre-approved by a mortgage lender and that their offer is acceptable to you. We'll check to make sure the buyer can afford the home. If their price is too low, we can negotiate the purchase price or find other ways to make the deal work, like covering some closing costs, adjusting the move-in date, or leaving behind appliances. Remember, I'm here to get the best for you!
Once we're happy with the offer, I'll review the contract for you. We'll check for important details like deposit amount (earnest money), down payment, how it'll be financed(type of home loan), inspection periods, repairs, key dates, and any fees and who covers them. Once everyone agrees, I'll get the final contract ready for you.
Congratulations on accepting an offer for your home! We're nearly at the finish line. Here's a simplified breakdown of the next steps:
1. I'll create a checklist of tasks to complete before closing.
2. Your home might need an inspection, survey, or appraisal.
3. If any repairs are needed, big or small, we will devise a plan of action.
4. I will contact the buyer's agent and other parties to ensure everything remains on track.
5. If you still need to, you can start planning your move so the new owner can smoothly move in.
Remember, I'm here to guide you every step of the way!
Congratulations on reaching the final step of selling your home! At closing, you'll officially hand over your property to its new owner. We'll get together with the transaction company to sign off on the legal paperwork and sort out any lingering details. Remember to cancel or transfer utilities, cable, and other services. If appliances are staying behind, let's ensure the new owner knows how to use them. I'm here to guide you every step of the way.
Once you have sold your home, you’re free to take the next step on your journey. Whether this is relocating to a new city, moving into a larger home, or downsizing and enjoying your life as empty-nesters, knowing all your selling responsibilities have been taken care of will help you achieve peace of mind for your new path.
Mia was great! We presented a challenge because we wanted to purchase a home in Georgia while living in Nevada. Mia was very responsive in setting up appointments for my family in Georgia to go and look at properties that I was interested in on the same day that I would notify her. Even though we never met in person, I was confident that Mia had our best interest i...
Mrs. Mia Manns was integral because she followed the legal and state policies and/or guidelines for purchasing the home.

Mia was extremely prepared for our first meeting including comps and copies of all the paperwork we would need to sign to sell our home. She was familiar with our area as well as those around us.
