Selling a Home

If you’ve ever heard the phrase, “you only get one chance to make a great first impression,” this phrase should definitely be applied to the home selling process. Selling your home is a process which should be taken on as a major project with many component parts.

  1. First you have the strategic pricing of your home based on the market, location, and current recent home sales.
  2. Next you have the punchlist that needs to be created in order to prepare to put your home on the market. This part of the sales process can also incorporate home staging.
  3. The third step is for a real estate agent to create the proper marketing plan, where to advertise your home, how much and how often it should be featured. For my clients, this step also includes a full photography shoot.
  4. The fourth step is to make sure that every single showing is individually planned for and carefully prepared for to “wow” your buyers every time. If necessary, onsite open house events will also be scheduled by your agent to get maximum exposure for your home.
  5. The final step is the home sale contract negotiation which will ensure that you get the maximum profit from your home sale, while making your home buyers happy with their home purchase.

If you choose to use a real estate agent to sell your home, your agent should be made aware of the time period in which you are expecting to sell your home. If you are in a hurry, this matters because it can affect the way the home is priced to sell. If you are expecting to get a certain price for your home, and you are willing to wait (and the price matches market expectations), you should let your agent know that as well. Timing is everything, both to you and to your agent, so clear expectations should be set before you being the sales process.

Each buyer who enters your home is not only going to be seeing it for the first time but possibly the only time. If your have a good deal of clutter and personal items in every nook and cranny, chances are your home won’t show that well. If you have paint peeling and chipped paneling or trim or other items in disrepair, your home may not end up on the buyer’s list of top 3 homes. You need to ensure that your home is as close to perfect as you can make it each time someone enters it for a showing.

Your agent is in charge of making your home selling process a resounding success. Choosing an agent with the experience and expertise, with an “eye” for staging your home for sale can be the difference in a quick sale for your asking price, or a long tough negotiation just to get a buyer.

AH! Where do I begin?! We had a 6 month journey with Chris. We were selling & buying. Sometimes the process isn’t... always rainbows and butterflies. But, Chris is one of the most positive individuals I have ever met. Chris cares, not only about his job, but his clients at a personal level & I believe that whole heartily. Sometimes, I can be well, difficult. 🤷🏼‍♀️ He always LISTENED to every one of my husbands and I concerns. He made sure to communicate with the buying agent and us very effectively and efficiently. In the end I wouldn’t have it any other way. If you are looking for MORE than just an agent to get you & your family through your selling or buying process, then Christopher Miguez is your man! Merry Christmas & Happy Selling / Buying ♥️🎄read more

Kelly helped making the process of buying my first home smooth and fun! As a close friend of Kelly’s, I had seen her... success in real estate from an outsider’s perspective, and now I understand why from first hand experience! The knowledge and experience offered by Kelly and her team helped me feel comfortable in a situation that was totally new to me. All of the recommendations that she gave me have turned out great - from lenders to offer amounts to storage solutions in the home. I recommend Kelly and her team 100% to anyone buying or selling a home. Thank you Kelly!!!read more

Kelly is the real deal! I had a gorgeous yet challenging home for her to sell. Not only does Kelly keep up-to-date... with the local real estate market when selling your home but her marketing and social media skills are the best in the business. Furthermore Kelly has such a positive attitude and works very hard on your behalf. She is also a delightful person and gets along well with everyone. I highly recommend Kelly to help you buy or sell your home.read more

Kelly's marketing skills are untouchable. Her use of social media and personal contacts with other realtors is what... makes her outstanding. She even keeps a list of potential buyers so that when a house becomes available she can notify them. She kept us informed throughout the process and answered all questions. Two offers were received one day after the house was on the market. THANKS Kelly!read more
