Before you put your home on the market, it's important to get it ready for sale. This may involve making repairs, decluttering, and staging the home to make it more appealing to potential buyers. You may also want to get a pre-listing inspection to identify any issues that need to be addressed.
The process of selling a home can take several months and can be complex, but with the right approach, it can also be a positive and rewarding experience. It's important to work with a knowledgeable real estate agent and have a clear understanding of the process to ensure a smooth and successful sale.
Determine the listing price of your home. This can be done by researching comparable sales in your area, working with a real estate agent, or getting a professional appraisal. You want to price your home competitively to attract buyers, but also ensure you get the best return on your investment.
Once your home is ready, it's time to start marketing it to potential buyers. This may involve listing your home on websites like Realtor.com or Redfin, placing a sign in your yard, and hosting open houses. Your real estate agent can help with this process and reach a larger audience through their network.
Once your home is on the market, you can expect to receive requests for showings. Be prepared to show your home to potential buyers and answer any questions they may have. You may also receive offers from buyers during this stage.
If you receive an offer, work with your real estate agent to negotiate the terms. This may involve back-and-forth discussions about price, closing costs, and other details. Once you reach an agreement, the offer becomes a contract.
The final step in the selling process is closing. This involves signing the closing papers, transferring ownership of the property, and receiving the sale proceeds. This process is typically handled by a title company or attorney.
As a first time homebuyer, I couldn’t have asked for a better agent than Kyla. She is a true professional, both knowledgeable about market dynamics and an advocate for her clients. In the current market, buying a home is a full contact sport, and Kyla made sure we won our forever home and made the whole experience much more enjoyable.— Kelsi F.
Working with Kyla Johns was the best home buying experience we could have asked for! She was knowledgeable, and explained everything to us, each step of the way. We got frustrated a few times because we were putting in offers and people were taking weeks to respond, and Kyla called them and bugged them, then reassured us that we would find the right house when it was our time. She never got discouraged and always remained positive. The house we ended up purchasing, we didn't even want to see because it was out of our price range, however, Kyla convinced us to go see it and we fell in love! She encouraged us to stay within our budget and if the house...— Darcie & Pedro L.
When we first met Kyla, we knew that we were about to work with a professional who would give it her all to find our dream home. It didn’t take long to find a house that met our needs. Knowing that we had a “go-getter” agent on our side who ensured that we were informed, educated, and not taken advantage of gave us peace of mind through the whole process of purchasing our dream house and investment property. After closing on the house that we purchased, it was a “no-brainer” to have her help us purchase our investment property. Even though, I lowballed the seller on the investment property she wasn’t afraid to submit my offer. Kyla is dedicated, ha...— Adrian A.
Well Kyla, as a first-time homebuyer I was very nervous and didn't know much about the process. I believe effective communication was key for me, you would always respond when I had a question be it a call, message, or text and that was great. It made me feel comfortable enough to continue our search and actually buy a home in a short period of time. Thank you for always being available to me.— Esther S.
Beautiful day, drove up to Soquel, got lost driving home, daydreaming! This place never fails to please me! Great job Kyla, for being such a wonderful real estate agent! I bought my condo from her when she was working in Monterey Co. Excellent person to deal with. People are so lucky!— Katharine P.
Kyla is great with people. I can highly recommend Kyla to Buyers and Sellers. She will work hard for them and be creative in her approaches to help them. She listens and responds promptly. You will love working with Kyla.— Michael S.
We absolutely love our house! The dogs love it too. I'm so glad we were able to buy our house before the market really went up! Thank you so much again for helping us make it happen!— Nicole S.
