Steps to Selling a Home
- 1. Decide to Sell
Are you ready to sell your home? Do you need a quick sale or have time to wait to get the highest price? Agents are a great resource to explain the current market and help determine what your home is worth

Any of our Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Synergy agents would love to help make the process of selling your home easy for you. We are focused on putting your best interests first. Again our agents have the knowledge of the current market to find the best pricing to sell your home.
- 3. Prepare Your Home
Start to clean and de-clutter your home. Talk to your agent about what may be necessary to fix before listing your home. Also, consider the options of staging your home to improve the aesthetic appeal. These steps will prepare you to show your home to prospective buyers. Think if you were the buyer how would you want the home to look?
- 4. Market
Your agent will discuss with you the best ways to market your home. Using professional photography your listing will be posted online to reach buyers. Working with your agent we will be able to tailor the best marketing methods for your sale.
- 5. Receive Offers and Negotiate
As you receive offers from interested buyers your agent will help decide what to negotiate in the contract. Your agent can create a counter offer to get you the best possible option. Once an agreement has been made, you’ll go under contract.
- 6. Home Inspection
Your agent will set up a home inspection as requested by the buyer. During this time there could be possible negotiations depending on the condition of your home.
- 7. Prepare for Appraisal
The buyer’s lender will order to have the home appraised to determine its value. It is important to keep the house clean and well maintained for the appraisal appointment. The lender needs to know the home value to approve the buyers loan.
- 8. Get Ready to Move
Make arrangements to have all your personal belonging moved out in time.
- 9. Closing
Your agent will explain and ensure that all the necessary documents are in order. Once everything is signed your home will be officially sold!
