Our Home Selling System was developed to provide our clients with a consistent and proven method to prepare their homes for sale, price their homes appropriately, and get the word out to as many prospective buyers as possible. At Digital Mayor Real Estate in Virginia Beach, we take pride in our ability to help clients get the right price for their homes. The goal of this guide is to help you learn how to sell your home quicker and for a higher price.


Price

The most important step in selling your home is pricing it correctly from the outset. It’s a well-known fact that overpriced homes take longer to sell and usually end up selling for a lower price. Since the majority of your showings will occur in the first 30 days on the market, it is crucial that your initial listing price matches buyer expectations. This step can be difficult to get right, so feel free to contact us with any questions you have.

Condition

In order to get top dollar for your home, you have to make sure that it looks its absolute best. So, take some time to complete any repairs, stage your home, etc. This will help you ensure that your home will bring the price it should bring.

Even some of the small things can make a major difference. From how the home smells during showings, how welcoming it feels to potential buyers, and the first impression it makes through its curb appeal. Draw in buyers by paying attention to the details!

Market

Work with your real estate agent to make sure the market reach of your home is significant. Are they doing all they can to get the word out about your home? Look at social reach, flyers, open houses, and reviews — just to name a few things to analyze. Find a real estate agent who is willing to go above and beyond to sell your home at the right price. Our team prides itself on helping our clients in every way we can.

Negotiate

Successfully negotiating a real estate contract is more than a matter of luck or natural talent. When you receive an offer, having an agent with a proven track record of bringing buyers and sellers together can make a huge impact on your final sales price. Be sure to hire a real estate professional that has your back and makes the selling process go smoothly.

Close

During the closing process, be sure to follow through with contract commitments, repairs, and other items that are included in your contract. Tie up any loose ends including: documentation, inspections, repairs, and other agreed-to items. Work with your real estate agent to understand your obligations as well as the buyer’s obligations to you! When you and your agent work as a team, the selling process becomes straightforward.
