12 Steps To Selling Your Property With A Realtor

This is a detailed list of the steps taken when selling a home with a realtor. You don't need a realtor to sell your home, though there are many benefits to selling with one.

  1. Decide you want to sell your home

The very first step to selling your home is to, of course, decide whether you want to sell your home or not. It is a large commitment and is not an easy task.

  1. Find a realtor

The next step is to find a realtor that works for you. Finding a realtor isn’t hard, finding one you get along with and share your vision may be a little more challenging. Justin Tsang and Stephanie Kong are a duo that really put your wants and needs first. They take time to explain every step to you and involve you in every decision.

  1. Inspection

You will then need to complete a home inspection and identify weak areas in the house.

  1. Valuation

Next, your realtor will be able to provide you a valuation based on your home’s size, location, and amenities. This will be conducted in relation to other listings and replacement costs in your house.

  1. Staging your home

The 5th step is to stage the home. During a staging, furniture will be moved to the most visually pleasing location in the home and extra clutter will be put away into storage. Art may be brought in to liven up the space as well.

  1. Take photos

Next, your realtor will take pictures to post for the listing. Photos of each room will be taken to showcase the space.

  1. List it

After photos are taken, your realtor will post the listing on multiple websites. This way, interested parties can contact your realtor and set up viewing appointments.

  1. Open houses

Your realtor will host open houses so that interested parties can stop by and check out the space. You will be asked to step out of the house for the duration of the open house.

  1. Entertain offers

As soon as a few days after being on the market, offers will start to come in. This is to be expected. Some may be under and some over asking price.

  1. Counter offers

After seeing the offers, it is up to you to discuss with your realtor and come up with counter offers for interested parties.

  1. Accept an offer

Your second last step is to accept an offer. Your goal is to get the highest amount for your house, and your realtor will help you decide which one to accept.

  1. Move out

Moving out is the final step to selling your home. Say your last goodbyes and maybe your first hellos to your new home.
