Selling Your Home in Greater Nashville 

Selling a home in the Greater Nashville area means doing a lot more than just putting a “For Sale” sign out front.  The home selling process involves many steps. There’s advertising and marketing to plan and implement; open houses and private showings to coordinate and attend; purchase offers to negotiate and contract contingencies to worry about - as well as an assortment of complex paperwork to be fill out.

Pricing Your Home Right

We understand the nuances of the Greater Nashville real estate market, and how to accurately price your home based on those specifics.  Priced too high and you run the risk of your home becoming a stale listing - he last thing you want is to haveyour home languish too long on the market. Priced too low and you lose money on the sale.

Comparative Market Analysis (CMA)

One of the first steps in the selling process is to have a comparable market analysis (CMA) or home evaluation performed.  Our comprehensive home evaluation will help determine the most appropriate price for your home, and will include:

  • Local market conditions - and whether home prices are rising or falling
  • Sales prices for similar homes nearby that have sold in the last month or two
  • Prices for Nashville area homes currently on the market
  • Average difference between the list prices and sale prices on similar homes that have sold
  • Listings that expired - usually because they were priced too high and no one bought within a reasonably recent time period
  • Prices of pending sales – rather than closed sales as they are the most recent

Preparing your Greater Nashville home to sell

Preparing Your Home to Sell

Next, we’ll focus on preparing your Nasville area home to sell, provide home staging advice and suggest outside changes as needed (landscaping, power washing, painting, etc.) that will help draw more buyers in. The exterior of your home is the first impression that prospective buyers make – and creating curb appeal is key to getting them in the door. Even the smallest enhancements can make a big difference in creating “love at first sight” for home buyers.

While your home is on the market, it’s important to keep it clean, free from clutter and in the best shape possible.  Taking the extra step to stage your home can also make a difference in how a buyer values it as well as the price  you might get.  At a minimum, conduct a thorough cleaning, get rid of extraneous clutter, and fix any major aesthetic issues.

Marketing Your Greater Nashville Home to Sell

Marketing Your Home to Sell

We strive to provide the best marketing tools online and offline to bring your home maximum exposure, and the best services to get your home sold! In a competitive market like Ocala, where homes for sale are added on a daily basis, your home listing needs to be seen in a variety of places to reach the widest range of qualified buyers.

We have extensive experience marketing Greater Nashville homes for sale as well as showing them to their best advantage. We will advertise your home through a variety of methods, including local publications and online MLS® listings. Information about your listing will be instantly available to agents all across your area.

“Anyone Can List Your Home – We Want to Sell It!”

Our network of professional Greater Nashville real estate contacts and home buyers will have the opportunity to check out your listing, expanding the pool of potential buyers. In addition, we’ll utilize the Internet, including our own professionally marketed and optimized Greater Nashville real estate website to ensure that your listing is highly visible. We provide home buyers access to property listings 24/7 on our website.

The Negotiating Process

When you start to get offers on your home, we’ll be there to represent you during what can sometimes be an ’emotionally charged’ negotiating process.  As soon as a buyer expresses interest, they’ll offer a price, and negotiations proceed. Each party seeks leverage that will get them the price they want. You need a skilled and objective negotiator on your side during these discussions.

 Closing on your Nashville area home

The Closing

Once you’ve entered into an agreement with a buyer, the final step in the selling process is the closing or settlement. We’ll help you understand contract contingencies and the details of the closing process - in addition to handling all the paperwork for you. Once all papers are signed and funds are disbursed, the seller hands over the keys to the new owner.

As you can see, there are many components to selling a home.  That’s why you want an experienced Greater Nashville real estate agent on your side – an expert to work through the sale process efficiently, deal directly with buyers’ objections and complaints like a pro, keep everything on track, and facilitate the contracts and escrow to a smooth close!
