    the Process of selling

    As a Seller’s Agent, it’s our responsibility to ensure the sale of your property goes as smooth as possible. If you haven’t sold a home for a while or ever, the following is a little flowchart of the process.

    Initial conversation

    During our initial conversation, we’ll gather information about the property, your current situation and where you are planning to go next.

    Property preview (1st meeting)

    Farm & Ranch properties are all different.  Previewing each property first allows us to have a true understanding of the type of property we are working with. We can see the quality of the construction, the way the property is laid out and envision what else it could be used for marketing later on.

    research / market analysis

    We understand through experience on how appraisers come to their value conclusions. Many times the rural properties require researching a larger area and older sales, in order to find what’s most comparable. We make line-by-line item adjustments for differences in the house as well as for the special things about your property such as acreage, outbuildings/barns, ponds and overall property condition.

    Our 2nd meeting will last about an hour or so (depending on how many questions you have. We’ll explain the market analysis, equity analysis sheet and our specific marketing activities for your Farm & Ranch property.

    decision time

    When choosing a Realtor, be sure to interview several. We are not all created equal. There are residential and commercial agents, part-time and full-time agents, newly licensed and veteran agents. If you have a specialty property, be sure to work with a specialty agent.  We know what other agents specialize in similar properties and how to market the property to target individuals that are a similar group of buyers. Last, but not least, choose an agent that you can trust and who has a personality type that is compatible with yours.

    Listing Agreement

    We will review the listing agreement with you, in person, paragraph by paragraph so you can ask questions and have a full understanding of the document. This can also be done remotely and signed digitally if you are a distance away, or just prefer to read and review it on your own.

    marketing begins

    We will schedule the professional photographer to go out the same day as we take final measurements and notes.  From there, the MLS listing will be created, Just Listed postcards will be mailed out…and the rest of the items on our list of Marketing Activities will begin.

    You have full control over showings! You tell us how much advanced notice you’d like, and we’ll enter it in the showing instructions. If certain days of the week, or time of day is better than others, let us know, and we’ll publish that information.  Of course the more flexible you can be, the easier it is to get interested buyers into your property.

    offers & negotiations

    When an offer comes in, we will call you and forward a copy of the contract to you. We’ll take a look at the offer price vs the price you are looking for and formulate a negotiating plan. Initial offers will come in writing with a proof-of -funds or pre-approval letter, and counter-offers will be verbal or via email or text.

    acceptance & inspections

    Once all is agreed on verbally, the buyers agent will make corrections to the initial offer, have it resigned by the buyers and send to us for your signatures. We will go over the purchase contract with you and forward a copy to your attorney.  Buyer will have 5 business days from date of acceptance to perform any inspections he or she wishes. Dates and times of those inspections will be scheduled with you. View our recommend Real Estate Professionals page.

    Closings dates are usually 30 days from date of acceptance, but this can vary with Farm & Ranch properties as there are many other factors to consider…and move. Your attorney will order title and survey. Closings are typically held at a title company, attorney offices or real estate office. If you choose to attend closing, plan on 1 – 1.5 hrs.  If you do not wish to attend closing, you may give your attorney, Power of Attorney.
