Our Selling Process: A Multi-Faceted Approach
Selling a property is a complex endeavor that requires a well-thought-out strategy. At Jamie Vieira & Associates, we've honed a comprehensive 10-step process to ensure you get the best deal possible. Here's an overview:
- Hire a Real Estate Expert: The first step is choosing the right agent. We emphasize the importance of trust and compatibility over mere pricing. Our team is equipped to give you the best exposure, ensuring favorable terms and top price for your property.
- Prepare Your Home: Before listing, we recommend a thorough cleaning and minor repairs. We also offer a free consultation with a professional home stager to make your home as appealing as possible to potential buyers.
- Professional Photos and Marketing: Once your home is ready, we use high-quality cameras and equipment to capture its best features. The listing is then promoted to a wide range of potential buyers.
- Show Your Home: We use the latest booking software to schedule showings, usually lasting between 30 to 60 minutes. You'll be notified via text or email for confirmation.
- Feedback: After each showing, we collect feedback from potential buyers and their agents. This helps us gauge interest and adjust our strategy as needed.
- The Offer Presentation: Offers can be presented in various ways, but the decision ultimately lies with you, the seller. We guide you through the negotiation process, which can range from a few hours to several days.
- Hire a Lawyer: We can recommend experienced local real estate lawyers to handle the legal aspects of the transaction.
- Buyer Revisits Property: Prior to closing, the buyer may revisit the property. This is also when any appraisals required by the buyer's lender will take place.
- Time to Move: We advise you to plan your move well in advance to minimize stress. Whether you're hiring movers or doing it yourself, early preparation is key.
- Closing Day: A couple of days before the closing date, you'll meet with your lawyer to sign the necessary paperwork. On the day of closing, once the funds have been received, the deal is officially closed.
To establish your home's market value, we conduct extensive research to compile a Comparative Market Analysis. This includes looking at active listings, sold listings, and even cancelled or expired listings to gauge what the market is willing to pay.
By entrusting us with your property, you're not just getting a service; you're getting a partnership COMMITTED to your success. We take each of these steps seriously, ensuring that you're informed and comfortable throughout the entire process.
