The Selling Process

The Seller's Journey

Contact your HUFF Realty associate for a more detailed analysis of your own personalized journey.


MEET WITH ME
Our journey begins with meetings to establish rapport, wants/needs, and counseling about the selling process. Our collective goal at HUFF Realty is to lead, teach & serve you through the seller's journey.


AGREE ON A SELLING PLAN
Agreeing on a selling plan involves reviewing market conditions and the tools available to test the market at the agreed price and condition of the home/property.


STAGE HOME
Painting, decor, reducing clutter, landscaping helps sell the home. You cannot change the location of the home. You can change the condition.


LISTING PAPERWORK
This is where you officially partner with a Realtor and brokerage. The listing paperwork kicks off HUFF's team to legally and officially tell the world your home is for sale.


HOME WARRANTY
A Home Warranty service contract can help protect your budget from costly surprise repairs and replacement of your home’s covered major components of mechanical systems and appliances. Adding a warranty during the listing period may help reduce your “out-of-pocket” expenses from covered breakdowns.

PHOTOS TAKEN
The number one item desired by buyers when viewing homes online are photos.


MARKET EXPOSURE
We make every effort to provide agents information and access to your home. Our HUFF systems help spread the word about your home to the world.


SHOWINGS
After agents and consumers see your home online, they may want to visit the home and get a much better feel. We call these “showings”.


PRICE ADJUSTMENTS
Market conditions determine the price buyers will pay. Price adjustments may be needed if no showings and/or offers occur. Price adjustments are a NORMAL part of a seller’s journey.


OFFER PRESENTED
The buyer's agent contacts the seller's agent to place an offer. The seller's agent then contacts the home seller to present the terms and conditions of the offer.


NEGOTIATIONS
Not all parties think alike, negotiations are a NORMAL part of the seller's journey.


COUNTER/ACCEPTED OFFER
As the seller, you can agree to an offer or you can counter offer. It is FAIR and REASONABLE for parties to counter offer. At some point in the process the buyer and seller agree.


INSPECTIONS
In most transactions, the buyer will write in the accepted offer to have a property inspected. Inspections are a NORMAL part of the journey.


REPAIRS
After inspections, requests may be made for repairs. It is FAIR and REASONABLE for this request to be made. It is your choice to make the repairs - most sellers do.


BUYER CLOSING PROCESS
You are waiting for the buyer's side to go through the processes to legally transfer the property. Further negotiations may be needed to keep your seller's journey on track.


CLOSING
This is where you meet to sign the legal papers to transfer ownership & collect any money due at the closing.
