The Home Sale Process 

1. Prepare Your Home for Sale

Before you list your home, you’ll want to make sure your home is as marketable as possible. You may want to consider repairs that could help add value to your property, such as fixing any water damage or foundation concerns. Even small cosmetic changes can have a big impact in the eyes of a buyer, such as replacing outdated light fixtures or giving your home a fresh coat of paint. As the market varies, so does the preparation for your sale. We work together with you to help identify updates that may help increase the value of your home, and those that don't.  


2. Determine Your Home’s Value

Choosing the right price for your home is one of the most important components of the selling process. While online estimates can be a good place to start, we will be able to provide a more accurate estimate based on local trends, the condition of your home, similar homes in the area, and more. Equipped with the insight, expertise, and knowledge of the real estate market, you can rest assured knowing the Pickard Group is committed to helping you set the right listing price, so you get the results you want!


3. Accept The Offer

Once your home is on the market and a buyer is interested, they will submit an offer to us through their own buyers agent. While the offer may differ from your asking price, you are able to accept, reject or counter it. Once you accept an offer, you’ll be under contract!  The contract will be sent to your attorney for review. We will help you understand the conditions, provisions, and obligations of your contact so we stay on timeline for a successful closing.


4. Close On Your Home

Once you’ve gone through the process you are ready to officially sell your home!  All contingencies have been met and now it's time to close on the sale.  With the help of your attorney and the title company you'll sign paperwork and transfer the ownership of your home to the buyer. Now it’s time to celebrate — you’ve just sold your home and are ready to move on to your next adventure.
