How To Sell A Home: Step-By-Step Guide

When I represent a seller, my goal is always to help you accomplish yours. I believe my purpose is to both help you sell your home at a great price and awesome terms as well as educate you about the home selling process along the way to help ensure you are making the best decision for you and your family. You will receive my full attention, honest and expert counsel, and access to top industry professionals, such as attorneys, contractors, and home inspectors, whether you are selling a $100,000 co-op or a $5 million home. For most of us, our home is the largest asset we have, so I want you to get top dollar for your home and sell it with as few issues as possible. I will go the extra mile for you as I do for all my clients, including coordinating a pre-home inspection, helping you find movers and storage, and even dropping off a meal to you on moving day!

Home Selling Process:

For our first video in the how to sell a home series, we focus on hiring your real estate professional. Selling a Home can be a lengthy, complex process, so you definitely want a professional that serves as your point person and that will properly represent you every step of the way as you sell your home.   In this video, we cover the following: 1) some key qualities you may want in the person you ultimately hire to help you sell your home, 2) many of the major functions your real estate professional will cover for you throughout your home selling journey, 3) what type of marketing plan you want them to have in order to sell homes, and 4) the importance of meeting and interviewing potential agents to determine if they are a good fit for you and vice versa.

“How much is my house worth?” is a question you should have answered at your meeting with your real estate professional. With still rising house prices in 2020, you want to know how best to position yourself in the marketplace against your competition and how to get your home sold quickly and at the best price and terms possible.

It’s staging time! Home staging is the preparation of your home for sale in the marketplace. The goal of home staging is to make your home as appealing as possible to the largest number of potential buyers. This allows you to sell your home fast, for more money, and for great terms.

It’s staging time again! Home staging is the preparation of your home for sale in the marketplace. The goal of home staging is to make your home as appealing as possible to the largest number of potential buyers. This allows you to sell your home fast, for more money, and for great terms. 

If you want to sell your home fast, you need to have a strong strategy in place for home showings. I like to say that when buyers are viewing homes, they are buying homes. Not to say that the sale itself will be done at the initial showing (it won’t), but buyers often make up their hearts and minds to purchase a property when they first view it. In our case, we want to encourage love at first buyer walkthrough!

In this video, we cover essential home showing tips that will give you a competitive edge in the real estate market. Given the number of homes for sale in New York City, these tips to sell your home are a must. These home showing tips are part of our larger strategy on how to sell your home fast and for the best price and terms possible.

An open house is an occasion when a home for sale can be viewed without an appointment or screening of qualifications. Open houses, effectively, allow sellers to have multiple home showings at once. In this video, we give key tips for hosting a successful open house and cover why an open house is an important step in the house selling process.

After all our showings and open houses (assuming, of course, that we priced in the sweet spot and used aggressive marketing), we should be looking forward to having multiple offers on a house. We can now review the offer price and terms that each buyer has submitted and you can decide which offer you want to move forward with. Picking the best offer for your house should not only be about price, but should also include the terms of the offer. In this video, we discuss some of the different points that help make a competitive offer.

In this video, we go over inspection tips when selling a house, so you can preempt some potential issues that can come up during an inspection and improve your standing when it comes to negotiations over home repairs. As we continue along our home selling process from start to finish, we will come across many major pressure points. The inspection is definitely one of them, so we want to do our best to make sure we show our home in the best light possible.

The buyer can either ask you for a seller credit for repairs, which is effectively a price reduction, or that you fix the items of concerns they noted from the inspection report themselves. In this video, we go over tips you can use to negotiate regarding repairs after the inspection to help ensure that we can continue on our NYC home selling process without a major setback.

It’s finally time for the contract signing and down payment!! Your NYC Real estate attorney will explain the contract and disclosure forms to you in detail. If you have any questions at all regarding the contract (or how to sell a home in general moving forward), you should definitely ask your attorney now.
