7 Step Plan to Seller's Success.

Step 1: Plan and prepare to sell your house. The key is to look at your home objectively and stage it in a way to maximize space and attract as many buyers (and create as much demand) as possible. Cosmetic improvements (paint, wallpaper and landscaping), help a home "show" better and often are good investments. Mechanical repairs, made to ensure that all systems and appliances are in good working condition, are required to get a top price.

Step 2: Get a REALTOR®. Only NAR members are entitled to use the term "REALTOR®." NAR members must adhere to a strict Code of Ethics. By joining NAR, individuals have access to a wide range of classes, seminars and certification opportunities. Contact your local Hollywood Hills Market Expert, Kieran M. Jackson, REALTOR®, SFR today about placing your home on the market!

Step 3: Set the price. All homes have a price, and sometimes more than one. There's the price owners would like to get, the value buyers would like to offer and a point of agreement which can result in a sale. Experienced REALTORS® are active in the local marketplace and can provide assistance with pricing, marketing, negotiation and closing.

Step 4: Marketing the home. Each home is unique, the marketplace is always in flux, interest rates constantly change and new buyers search for homes each day. With such fluidity, it requires REALTORS® to craft marketing plans specifically for individual homes and market conditions. Experienced REALTORS® base their marketing efforts on previous transactions and ongoing research.

Step 5: Sell the home. Because a home sale involves an array of both personal and business concerns, it's important to get it done right. You need to carefully prepare your home, understand the market and see what alternatives are realistically available. The old motto "be prepared" is a good guide in such circumstances. Owners, with assistance from their REALTOR®, will need to carefully review offers, consider marketplace options and then determine whether an offer is acceptable.

Step 6: Closing the transaction With automation now available, closings can occur within a week in some areas, at least in theory. In practice, it takes time to arrange financing, conduct inspections, obtain appraisals, locate replacement housing, contact movers, pack and actually move. Closing, aka "settlement" or "escrow", as it is known in some areas, is essentially a meeting where the closing agent (the party who conducts settlement) takes in money from the buyers, pays out money to the owner and makes sure that the purchaser's title is properly recorded in local records along with any mortgage liens.

Step 7: Moving The time to plan your move begins once you've decided to sell your home. Some of the activities required to sell the home can actually help with the moving process. For example, cleaning out closets, basements and attics means there will be less to do once the home is under contract.
