Thinking of Selling your home?

Helping Sellers receive top dollar and stay stress free in Northeast GA.

Sure you see the signs in the yard and the listings live on major real estate websites, but what does it look like to list YOUR home with ME? Here’s a behind-the-scenes look so you can know exactly what to expect.

After you reach out to me in the way that’s most convenient for you—text, DM, phone, email, or my fave, in person—I’ll get back in touch within 24 hours if we should miss each other. We’ll have a quick introductory chat and schedule a face-to-face at your home.

In prep for our meeting, I’ll run a market analysis, look at recent comps, and check out any online records I can find. 

During our meeting, I’ll bring my findings to share and we’ll do a walk-thru of your home. We’ll discuss your selling timeline, profit goals, and any minor repairs or upgrades that might be worth doing prior to selling. I’ll be happy to linger as long as needed to answer all your questions. 

Afterward, I’ll combine the data I’ve gathered along with your feedback and compute a suggested listing price.

At that point, if you’re ready to list, I’ll schedule a photographer, write your listing description, get it all okayed by you, and start networking with other agents to track down your buyer.

One thing I love love love about real estate is that the selling process can be customized to fit your needs. At any of these steps, we can slow down, pause, or speed up—it’s 100% in your court. I’m just here to help.

 

The Home Selling Process

STEP 1: consultation

Let’s connect! Let’s schedule a time to meet, go through my process, and create a timeline that fits your needs. 

STEP 2: Pricing

 When pricing your home it is important to carefully consider top market value. Using my competitive market analysis tool, I will suggest your home’s best listing price. Correct listing price from the start puts you in a better situation for stress-free offer.

STEP 3: Staging + Photography

Today’s market is centered on technology. Buyers are performing their own searches online, so it is important that your listing is ranked high and shown in its best light. Rest assured I take the extra steps to get maximum exposure for your listing.

STEP 4: Showings + offers

When we list your home, you will also be signed up with a showing service that immediately communicates with you when a showing is scheduled. When feedback isn’t left, I will follow up with those agents requesting their feedback within 24 hours.

STEP 5: Under Contract

During this time, we will keep track of inspections and any contingencies. More details can be found in my Seller’s Guide below.

STEP 6: Closing Day

Closing is when funds and documents are transferred in order to transfer ownership of the property to the buyer. The escrow officer will look over the contract and find out what payments are owed by who, prepare documents for closing, perform the closing, make sure all payoffs are completed, the buyer’s title is recorded, and that you receive payoffs that are due to you.

Have Questions About Selling?

Check out our FAQs on selling real estate in Northeast GA.

It all comes down to T-I-M-E — and whether you’ve got a lot or a little of it!

Clock ticking and you need to increase value ASAP? Zero in on these weekend projects:

  • Clean, clean, and clean some more.
  • Give walls a fresh soft, neutral coat of paint.
  • Landscape with some low-maintenance (but green!) plants.
  • Power wash your driveway, sidewalks, and home exterior.
  • Declutter and consider staging.

Time on your side? Chip away at these little by little:

  • Remove a wall (or two!) to create open living spaces.
  • Replace carpeted floors with wood or LVP flooring.
  • Finish your unfinished basement.
  • Replace your old windows and front door.
  • Install new kitchen countertops and appliances.

The short answer: Everything you know. The longer answer: You’re required to provide a written description (your agent will give you the form)  about any known issues with your home that could hurt its value. Those issues include:

  • Termite damage
  • Presence of lead-based paint
  • Foundation cracks
  • Plumbing or HVAC issues
  • Septic or sewer problems
  • Homeowners association fees and restrictions.

The seller disclosure is good for buyers AND sellers. How? It brings transparency to the transaction, minimizes delays, and heads off the risk of legal headaches down the road.

In a pinch? 3-5 days. On average? U.S. sellers spend around six months preparing their homes for sale, another 25 days with their house on the market, and 30- to 45-days in the closing period (Zillow.com).

Bottom line? It’s never too early to start talking with an agent. When you’re ready to sell, I’ll be there whether it’s this week or six months from now.

Many sellers like the idea of “starting high” to see if they get higher offers, but this strategy isn’t usually practical. Here are a few reasons why:

First, buyers may not see your listing if they use a price filter set to what they expect prices in the area to run.

Second, you run the risk of the appraisal coming in lower than your contract price, which will require your contract to be renegotiated or canceled.

Third, if your listing price puts your home higher than your neighborhood value, your home will likely sit on the market longer as buyers wait for you to make a reduction.

It’s best to set a realistic listing price that will bring you buyers quickly.

My goal is always to get you the highest possible price in the shortest amount of time.

Selling a house while buying a new home can get complicated – there’s no doubt about that.

Making sure two transactions are going smoothly simultaneously so that the closings will align can be stressful.

But that’s why you hire a team of professionals to help you through this tricky process.

An experienced and skilled real estate agent can help you through both transactions to keep everything on track for you. If this is or will be your situation, feel free to send me a message so we can chat about it.
