Selling your Home
Discover How to Sell your Home for the Most Money
Are you looking to sell in the Bend area? Let my team and I show you how easy it is when we represent your home. Our broad reach and extensive database of buyers will quickly get your home sold for the most money.
A home is often a family’s largest financial asset, and deciding to sell it is a big decision that involves preparation and teamwork. Leaving a home where you have created years of memories can also be an emotional experience. To simplify the process I break it down into three phases, listed below:
Declutter, cleaning, repairs, photography
Home for Sale Phase
Time for home marketing exposure!
Contracts, inspections, appraisals, deadlines
Phases explained in more detail below
The first phase is the preparation phase. We will establish a price that helps your home sell quickly and for the most money. I will also provide tips for you for de-cluttering, home cleaning and repairs, and staging as needed. Photos of your home will be taken by a professional real estate photographer to make your home stand out.
I preview the competing listings to see how your home compares. I may call the agents of the sold listings I am using as comparables to see if there were any special circumstances surrounding their sale that I should know about, such as a divorce situation, structural problems, etc. I base my pricing recommendations both on closed sales and the current competition.
Spruce-Up House Cleaning (if appropriate)
I can arrange to have your home professionally cleaned before going onto the market.
Photos will be taken by a professional real estate photographer to make your home stand out, at my expense.
Home for Sale Phase
The second phase is when your home is for sale. Your home marketing exposure will include:

The real work often begins in the last phase, the Pending Phase. This means you have accepted an offer and contracts have been signed. There are inspections to negotiate, lenders to keep an eye on, and appraisers to be prepared for. Stringent monitoring of dates and deadlines is important, as is a careful review of title work.
For most families, their home is their largest financial asset, and deciding to sell it is a big decision that involves a lot of preparation and work.
Selling your home will have its frustrating moments. How frustrating depends a lot on your real estate agent. I promise to do my best to reduce stress before, during and after the sale.
