You probably know there’s more to selling a home than

putting up a FOR SALE sign. But if you don’t understand the

process in detail, you might feel intimidated and stressed

when it comes time to put your property on the market.

Fortunately, the home selling process isn’t that difficult to

understand. There are basically six steps.

Step one is selecting the right REALTOR®. You need a

knowledgeable, trusted expert who can guide you through the

process, take care of all the details, and help sell your home

quickly and for the best price.

Step two is preparation. You need to ensure your home is

clean and uncluttered. It’s also important that you take care

of any needed repairs, even minor ones like wall dents. You

may also need to consider a home improvement, such as

replacing worn carpeting.

Step three is the listing price. You need to select a listing

price at or near the fair market value of your property.

Step four is promotion. How will buyers find out about your

property? Will they see it on MLS? Will they come across an

ad in the newspaper? Will they receive an invitation to an

open house? An effective promotion plan is critical.

Step five is dealing with offers. Ideally, you’ll get several. But

the best offer is not necessarily the highest one. An offer can

fall through for many reasons, so dealing effectively with

offers is, perhaps, the most important part of the home

selling process.

Step six is the transaction. Once the sale is made, you want

to know that you have the right professionals in place – your

lawyer, mover, etc. – to make sure all the after-sale details are

taken care of properly.

When choosing a REALTOR® to help sell your

home, there are dozens of questions you can

ask. But, perhaps, the most important

questions to ask him/her are these:

• What do your past clients say about your


• Do you build your business on repeat

business and referrals?

• Do you have experience selling our type

of home in this type of neighborhood?

• Are you easy to reach? Can we get a hold

of you by phone or email? How quickly

do you return calls?

• How will you promote our listing?

• What do you do to make sure the home

selling process goes smoothly for us?

• What happens after you sell our home?

Will you stay in touch?

Ideally, you want to determine if he or she is

a “referral worthy” REALTOR®. That’s the

kind of professional you want to work with.
