Home Sellers’ Process

Before We List Your Home

We understand that you want the process for selling your home to be quick, easy and as profitable as possible. With just a little guided effort, though, our team can help you maximize your results and minimize headaches.

Preparing Your Home to Sell

Before we work with you to make decisions on the keys factors in listing your home for sale it is crucial that we ensure that we are collectively prepared for success.

Newman Team Homes will help you understand what needs to be done – and what is absolutely necessary, before we activate your listing. We help you decide if and when you may need to invest a little cash, as well as what is most likely to increase the return on your investment.

Market Research & Analysis

Local real estate market research & analysis – of both current & recent data, plays a significantly vital role in many of the important decisions leading up to listing your home for sale.

Newman Team Homes has access to industry-leading resources that allow our team to acquire any data relevant to your listing. And, your personal agent will go over the highlights with you and answer all the questions that you may have.

Marketing & Sales Planning

Real estate listings, just like people and properties, are all unique. So when it comes time to promote your unique home listing a cookie-cutter approach is not always the best bet.

Newman Team Homes understands that marketing, sales, and promotion activities are top priorities for our listing clients. Our team will perform a thorough analysis of your potential listing in order to develop a strategic plan suited to your specific listing.

Pre-Promoting Your Listing

No matter how competitive the real estate market may be, time is an extremely valuable commodity. Waiting until your listing goes active to promote guarantees missed opportunities.

It’s Time to
Activate

Your Home for Sale

Home Sellers’ Process

Your Active Home Listing

Once your real estate listing is active there will be a lot of ongoing activities and tasks.

Comprehensive
Home Listing Management

An active home listing is a big responsibility and can become overwhelming. But, you can relax! As a client of Newman Team Homes we are working 7 days per week to ensure that every detail and every activity is handled.

Placement of Your Listing

By default, the official listing of your For Sale home is your local Multiple Listing Service (MLS). But, an MLS listing is just the starting point.

There are many high-value channels and platforms for placement of your listing that can – and will, support the distribution of information about your home to potential buyers including placement on all of the most highly-trafficked real estate websites.

And, your listing will be featured on Newman Team Homes’ website with a custom-tailored page dedicated to showcasing all of the amazing details about your property.

Promotion of Your Home Listed for Sale

As a Newman Team Homes client, the promotion of your listing will go far beyond MLS placement. While having your listing place is certainly important, you will need additional actions and efforts to generate traffic.

Newman Team Homes will utilize various mediums from print to digital to create high-value content. Content will then be leveraged across multiple channels such as social media and email to create awareness and generate traffic.

Offers & Negotiation

Receiving an offer on your home is great – and multiple offers is even better! But, not all offers to buy your home are equal – even when they appear to be. Newman Team Homes will help you analyze any offer you receive, and assist in the comparison when you are in a multiple offer situation.

And, when you are not 100% comfortable accepting an offer Newman Team Homes will put our expertise & experience in negotiation to work for you.

Under Contract

When you come to an agreement with a buyer on an offer to buy your home it enters into “Under Contract” status. It’s definitely an exciting step, but it is also a very tricky period that needs added attention.

During this stage, any contract contingencies such as inspection and appraisal must be carried out. So, it is of the utmost importance that the Under Contract stage is managed skillfully. As a Newman Team Homes client, you can confidently rely on our experience and expertise to help you navigate each step.
