Selling: A Step by Step Guide


Whether you’re planning to downsize, trade up or relocate out of the area, when you choose to work with me, I realize that you are entrusting me to list and sell one of your most valuable assets.

Selling your property is a big decision. What determines how much you will get from your home will be a function of the Housing Market, the Condition of your house and the Agent you partner with. How your home is priced, how it shows and how it’s marketed makes all the difference, so it’s important to work with an agent you can trust to get the job done perfectly.

With me as your agent, you're not just getting a professional who uses the best tools and technology to sell your property for the maximum return on your investment, in the least amount of time, with the least amount of stress to you. You're getting transparency and instant communication throughout the entire process, so you can relax knowing every detail is taken care of.

Closing The Sale

The escrow officer will furnish all parties involved with a settlement statement, which summarizes and details the financial transactions enacted in the process. When the buyer has signed off on the loan documents, the escrow officer will send them back to the lender for the final review and funding. Once escrow receives all the funds from both buyer and lender, the sale is recorded with the county and your ownership is conveyed to the buyer. The seller should arrange to have all property keys and any other important information for the buyer at the closing, so that the buyer may receive these items at this time.
