SELLING YOUR HOME: A Seller's Timeline

Putting your home on the market can be a stressful process, especially when you don’t know what to expect. Fortunately, with our help and this easy to follow guide, you can smoothly complete the process. Following these steps will help you prepare so you can get organized and sell your home for the best price possible.​​​​​​​


Step 1: Setting the Stage

From applying a fresh coat of paint to rearranging furniture, we will work with you to ensure the property is visually ready for showing. We will prepare to market your property. Preparations might include scheduling a professional photoshoot, commissioning an illustrative floorplan, organizing professional staging, and writing a listing description.


Step 2: Coming Soon

We will network and market the property before "going live" to drive interest among prospective buyers and their agents.


Step 3: Going Live

For the duration of the selling process, your property will be showcased on and shared across our 100+ partner sites.


Step 4: Spreading the Word

We will develop and execute a marketing plan. We will also work with the Compass marketing team to produce beautiful print collateral to strategically showcase your property. Eye-catching yard signs are produced and placed outside your property.


Step 5: Making Connections

Tracy and Flor continuously leverage professional contacts to find ideal buyer brokers. Open houses are hosted for both brokers and clients on an ongoing basis.


Step 6: Building a Strategy

We conduct an assessment of the market response within the first few days your listing is live. Feedback from agents and buyers is aggregated, and the listing strategy can be revised if necessary.


Step 7: Measuring Success

We'll provide frequent updates and continuous traffic metrics.


Step 8: Optimizing the Offer

Following an offer we contact all interested parties, review the offer terms, and communicate all counteroffer options with you. The contract is negotiated and accepted, and the transaction summary is circulated to all parties.


Step 9: Negotiating the Details

We observe and record all contingency periods throughout the in-contact stage.

A property appraisal and home inspections take place, and any further negotiations are managed. All financial and supplemental information is collated and submitted to the managing agent.


Step 10: Completing the Close

A date is set with the closing company. Meanwhile, Tracy and Flor will provide resources for repairs, moving details, and transfer of utilities. We'll arrange the final walk-through and finally, the closing, at which time the keys are handed over to the buyer.
