The Process of Selling Your Home
Contact us today to learn about the home selling process.
The first time you meet with a member of The HIVE real estate team, we will discuss what your selling objectives are. This is a good time to ask questions, and we will give you an idea of what to expect during the selling process. As realtors, we know the best improvements you can make before listing your home for sale. The goal is to showcase your property at it's best and get a high return on the improvements made. At last, we will provide you with a complete Competitive Marketing Analysis (CMA) for your property. This will show you properties similar to yours and near your home that have sold over the last year and gives a good idea of what you can expect once your home is on the market.
When you are ready, we will review and sign a standard listing agreement and complete all of the mandatory disclosure forms. Some cities and counties require different inspections prior to selling your home. Our team will keep you updated on what is required throughout the entire process of selling your home.
Knowing how to showcase and accentuate the best features of your home, without incurring unnecessary expense, is at the core of what we do. As we tour your home, we take the time to learn about it, address your questions and needs, provide more information about our marketing strategies, share market insights, and decide next steps for selling your home.
Establishing the value and list price for your property involves researching and comparing similar properties and weighing factors including location, condition, amenities, and market conditions. Together with your realtor, you will arrive at a competitive price aimed at generating strong buyer activity for selling your home.
Understanding where buyers come from allows us to market your property competitively. Creating excitement in the marketplace through consistent and aggressive marketing efforts and integrating online and offline efforts is key to a successful sale.
Our team will arrange for professional photography, public open houses and broker tours, and yard signage, local newspaper ads, sales agent network, and customized property marketing. We will remain in constant communication with you and give you progress reports on showings and all activity.
Our marketing team will curate a one-of-a-kind brochure with unique details about the property to ensure it stands out in the crowd and help buyers envision themselves making the home their own.
The complexities of processing transactional documents will be made very easy for you through our continuous guidance and communication. We will review all offers and terms of each offer with you and negotiate on your behalf so that you obtain the highest possible price for your home while limiting your exposure and protecting your best interests.
Once your home is in escrow we will prepare all seller required disclosures and reports and arrange for a Title Company to process the transaction. Communication between us is imperative and we can assure you that you will be informed every step of the way.
Congratulations, you have now sold your home! We will provide you with helpful moving tips and tricks and also be there to answer any questions that arise. We are always available to help you should a question arise after the close of escrow and we want to ensure that you are 100% satisfied.
At The HIVE, we believe that one of the greatest ways to generate wealth is to become a homeowner, and it's our goal to make homeownership accessible to all. Through our donor-advised fund at The Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation, we are able to work with our clients to grant donations to local non profits that work to build an equitable Twin Cities community for all.
We have partnered with The Sanneh Foundation and Habitat for Humanity; however, we love to learn about non profits that are near and dear to our clients' hearts. Each time we help someone buy or sell a house, a donation is made in their honor to a non profit of their choice.
