Eight Steps To Sell a Home Fast
Selling your home can be a very stressful process. Let’s talk about how to you can sell your home for the highest price, fast.
You have enough stress in your life, don’t let selling your home be just another cloud hanging over your head. No matter the situation, we have devised a simple 8 step plan that ensures your home will sell as fast as it can and for as much as the market will bear. Our goal is to help you get your home sold and get you where you want to be with as low stress as possible.
1. Prepare the Home for Selling
Before your home hits the market we need to get it ready. To do this we recommend doing two key things: 1) Conduct a Pre-Inspection and 2) Stage/Depersonalize the home. Why? We do these two things for sellers looking to streamline their home selling experience because it helps buyers get over two key mental hurdles. First, by conducting a pre-inspection buyers (especially first-time homebuyers) can look at the report and feel good about the home they are viewing. Not to mention, this report will allow us to nip any minor issues in the bud prior to list! The second thing this does, by removing your personal items, it better allows potential buyers to visualize themselves and their things in the home. While this can be hard to do (it is your home after all), if the goal is to sell fast and for maximum value, then it is an essential first step.
2. Find How Much Your Home is Worth
We will assist you with the pricing of your home based on a number of factors, including a comparative market analysis (CMA). This report will help us decide on the best price that will allow your home to sell within your required timeline. Learn more about the Comparative Market Analysis report
3. Professional Photos & Measurements
In the Twenty-First Century, the very first experience a potential home buyer will have with your property will be online. That means photos are one of the most critical components to get right. That is why we always ensure professional photographs are taken to truly showcase your home. While we are at it, we will also professionally measure your home which not only gives us the correct size of your home, it will also give potential buyers a floorplan for them to use when planning their move!

4. MLS® and Your Lawn Sign
Once we have all of the information and beautiful photos, its time to take your property live! This means that we will put it on MLS® and get your “For Sale” lawn sign up on your yard. It is no secret that many buyers come from within the neighborhood so while it may seem “old school”, the lawn sign is a must!
5. Color Feature Sheet Brochure
Once we start getting showings and foot traffic through the door, those potential buyers need a takeaway. They need something to touch, see and remind them of the amazing experience they had in your home. The feature sheet we will make and have printed and displayed within your home will showcase the best photos, best amenities and more. It’s like a high fashion magazine spread meets real estate.
6. Neighborhood Brochure
Taking things one step further, we ensure that not only do potential buyers get that brochure, we also drop this brochure off at your neighbors’ homes. Your neighbors already love the community so now it’s just a question as to whether or not they want to move. We like to make this decision easy by putting your beautiful home on display right from their mailbox.
7. Open House
Sometimes life gets busy, we get it. This is why we will hold at least one Open House for you once your home is on the market. This gives potential buyers, those too busy to schedule a private showing, the opportunity to come and see what all the buzz is about.
8. Weekly Updates
The last step in our process is the most important, it is our commitment to update you weekly on the progress of your sale. Information is power and power gives you control. Control takes away stress. For all those reasons, we commit to this and making your selling process the quickest and minimal stress process, while maximizing the value of your home for your required timeline.
