Steps To Selling Your First Home In Brooklyn Center, MN

Step 1: Determining Your Homes Value

Your local Brooklyn Center real estate market is going to determine your home's value.  Some areas of Brooklyn Center have seen modest gains while others areas have seen home values sky rocket.  At Excel Homes, we use a comparative market analysis to help determine what the market suggest your homes value is.

Once we have determined what we can expect for a sales price, we can develop a listing price strategy to bring in as many potential home buyers as possible.

Step 2: Getting Your Home Ready for Sale

The first step to getting your home ready to sale is to begin decluttering it and improving curb appeal.  Once the decluttering is done, we will want to stage your home to give it a "Welcome Home" feel to potential home buyers.  Staging you home may simply refer to using your furniture but rearranging it to make rooms feel bigger, or bringing in a staging professional and their furniture to really make your home feel cozy.

Next you will want to make any necessary repairs.  Generally speaking, an Excel Homes realtor can make general inspections around the home and make suggestion on what repairs to make.  However, if you want to make sure everything is in good shape, we can recommend a local inspector to thoroughly inspect your entire home.

Step 3: Marketing Your Home

As a leading listing agent in Brooklyn Center, we know how to identify the sizzling selling points of your home and choose the best advertising words to describe it.  We use our ways with words to place a listing of your home on the mls, leading online websites and various other avenues we have used to sell countless Brooklyn Center homes.

Additionally, we use state of the art technology to take and edit pictures of your home to make it stand out from other similar homes in the Brooklyn Center area.

Step 4: Schedule Showings

In today's hot Brooklyn Center real estate industry, you can expect multiple showings on the day your home hits the market and possibly for days afterwards.  It is crucial to make the home available at request once the house is listed through the first weekend because, from experience, the best buyer for your home usually makes an offer within the first day or two of the home being listed.

Step 5: Review & Negotiate Offers

After successfully showing your home and receiving offers, it's time to take a look at all offers on the table to determine which offer best suites your timeline and needs.  Besides price, there are a number of different factors to look at when negotiating the price of your home such as contigencies, amount of time needed before closing can happen, type of financing the buyer is qualified for and even the name of the lender on the buyers pre-approval letter.

As your trusted real estate team, Excel Homes will clearly explain each offer in detail and answer all questions you have about each offer.  We will use our knowledge and experience to help take the stress out of picking the right buyer for your home and making negotiations to ensure you get as much money as possible out of the sale of your home.

Step 6: Navigating Lender Demands

From time to time either the buyer or the lender can make demands of the home seller before closing.  Usually demands from the buyer come shortly after inspection if the inspector finds something wrong with your home.  In this case, we will negotiate with the buyer to find a solution that works for both you, the home seller, and the home buyer.

Lender demands, on the other hand, usually pop up after an appraisal has been reviewed by the lender.  Demands from lenders are non-negotiable but generally are minor repairs such as touching up some paint or replacing a railing.

Step 7: Closing

Finally, closing day has come and it's time to hand over your keys to the new home buyer.  Before handing over your keys though, we will need to complete all the paperwork with the title company and make sure that every penny due to you from the sale of your home is accounted for.  If there are any issues with any of the paperwork, we will work diligently to correct all errors immediately.
