Home Seller process: Timelines

A question that we often get asked by homeowners is about the timelines when selling a home.  What should you expect?
We need to get the home ready for sale.  You want to be really careful not to just slap the home on the MLS prior to having it in show-ready condition.  This video will give you an idea of a few things you need to think about prior to actually letting buyers go into your home.
So, when we meet and you decide to list with us, we will give you a contract to sign.  Once the contract is executed, we will provide you with some staging advice and give you recommendations on what you can do to enhance the appearance of your home to maximize the return on your investment.  Don’t worry there is no additional cost to you for this service, but this is essential because research shows the importance of staging in relation to the amount of money you will get on your home as well as how quickly your home might sell. 
During this time we will also recommend whether or not you should have any inspections done prior to going on the MLS.  We will go over the disclosures with you so that we can have these available to buyers so that they are fully aware of the condition of the home prior to making an offer
Once it is in “Show Ready Condition”, we will photograph your home to capitalize on all of the unique features.  We will also create a video and work on all the back end marketing of your home.
This is one of the most important parts of getting you the most amount of money for your home. We don’t just put up a sign in your front yard and stick it on the MLS, it is much more detailed than that.
We have a very strategic, comprehensive digital marketing strategy that we utilize.  This involves running highly targeted ad campaigns across multiple social media platforms.
Please note that just posting your home on an agent’s Facebook page is not enough, your home will get about 97% Less exposure by doing it that way.  Our team PROPERLY exposes your home across multiple social media platforms.
Contact us if you’d like to learn more about the marketing aspect of selling your home. 
Once all of the marketing is done, we will go live on the Multiple Listing Service.   We will advertise for you on the major third-party home search websites like Zillow, Realtor.com, etc. in addition to all of the social media platforms (the proper way).
Now that we are live, you can expect tour requests so that agents can take their clients through your home. The buyer’s agent will accompany them so don’t worry about that.
Depending on the time of year and the market conditions will determine how long your home will take to sell.
I’m Diane McConaghy with RE/MAX Select Realty and we would love to serve you and as always, we are Moving Right Along.
