Seller's Guide

The decision to sell your home is a big one. Whether this will be your first time on the selling side of the real estate process or you’ve done it several times before, we would love to assist you with the sale of your home. Our group can help you navigate the process and help answer any questions you may have.

Choose to work with The McGovern Group

The best thing you can do to make the selling process as quick and as easy as possible is to hire a real estate professional — and our group is here to help every step of the way. We can offer cutting edge technology, comprehensive marketing strategies, and can effectively and efficiently guide you through the real estate process. We understand the nuances of the market and can work with you to determine a competitive and fair price for your home.

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 some repairs that could help add value to your property or cosmetic changes that can have a big impact in the eyes of a buyer. We offer a complimentary pre-listing consultation with our design expert who can provide you with a customized checklist on how to prepare your home. 

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, your agent 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 and knowledge on the real estate market, you can rest assured knowing our group is committed to finding a fair value for your home. 

Accept the Offer

Once we list your home on the market and a buyer is interested, the will submit an offer. While the offer may differ from your asking price, you are able to reject or counter it if you'd like. Once you accept an offer, you'll be officially under contract! During the due-diligence period between signing the purchase agreement and closing the sale of your home, your agent can help you understand the conditions, provisions, and obligations of your contract. 

Close on Your Home

Once you've gone through the process, you are ready to officially sell your home! You'll sit down and sign paperwork with the help of your agent and transfer ownership of your home to the buyer. Now it's time to celebrate - you've just sold you home and are ready to move on to your next adventure!
