The Process

Consultation

  • Recommendations for home improvements.
  • Staging advice
  • Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)
  • Seller Net Proceeds Sheet

Make it Official

We use a program called CTMe  Contracts, this makes it convenient for you to sign documents online if needed. 

First Impressions Matter

We will take photos from the doorway areas, and make use of the windows and the natural light in the rooms.  It is always best to clear the clutter out of every room.  A quick wipe down to “clean” and if you have any pets, it is best to have them out of the way during the photo shoot 

Marketing Your Home

  • Professional signage
  • Advertising in local newspapers, only if it's warranted. 
  • Social Media
  • MLS exposure 
  • Distribution to major websites.
  • Full-color flyers, if warranted. 
  • Open-houses, providing its location is a candidate.
  • Exposure at Independent Broker meetings.

Remember, no single tactic sells homes. It's a combination of different methods that sell a home.  

ShowingTime-Feedback

ShowingTime has made it simple and easy for agents to schedule a showing through our MLS system. 


Once a showing has been requested, you as our clients will receive a call/text from showingTime to confirm the time will work for you.


When the agent and their client have viewed the property, they will receive a feedback form to fill out which will be emailed to you.

Whats a Lockbox

 A real-estate lock box is a padlock-shaped box that hangs around the doorknob of a house that is on the market. The device holds the keys to a house to allow communal access for all real estate agents, while continuing to keep them secure. 

Under Contract - What to Expect!

A Signed Contract

After a seller accepts a buyer's offer to purchase a property, it's time to make it official, in the form of a real estate contract. This document is one of the most important steps in the home-buying process, as it clears the way for both parties to begin the transfer of property. 

Ernest Money

Earnest money is a deposit made to a seller showing the buyer's good faith in a transaction.


Earnest money is typically held by the Title Company in an escrow account. 

Home Inspection

A home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home. Home inspections are usually conducted by a home inspector who has the training and certifications to perform such inspections. 

Home Appraisal

Real estate appraisal, property valuation or land valuation is the process of developing an opinion of value for real property (usually market value). Sometimes an appraisal report is used to establish a sale price for a property. 

Loan Objection Deadline

A loan objection deadline is a term of a standard home buying contract in certain states. It relates to the date by which a buyer must inform the seller if they're unable to get a satisfactory loan (under the conditions of the contract). 

The Lead-Based Paint

 In 1996, the Lead-Based Paint Disclosure Regulation was enacted. It requires owners of pre-1978 "target housing" to disclose to potential buyers or renters all known information about the presence of lead-based paint and/or lead-based paint hazards in the property. It requires that the potential buyer or tenant be given the lead information pamphlet, "Protect Your Family From Lead In Your Home," or other EPA-approved pamphlet as well as a specific disclosure statement. The option of whether to test for the presence of lead-based paint is left to the owner, so long as a decision not to test is disclosed.

Closing Day!

CONGRATULATIONS!

 Here are some specific things that happen on closing day:

  • The buyer (or the buyer's lender) will provide a check for the amount owed toward the purchase price of the house.
  • The seller will sign the deed over to the buyer. 
  • The title company (or in some cases a lawyer or notary) will register the new deed with the appropriate government office. This record will show the buyer as the new homeowner.
  • The seller will receive any proceeds they earned from the sale, once their mortgage balance and closing costs have been paid off.

When all of the documents have been signed, and all funds have been properly distributed, the deed of ownership will be transferred from seller to buyer. This is when you become a homeowner. The seller will hand you the keys to your new house, and then you're all done.
