Your step-by-step guide to selling a property 

At Kaufman Realty & Auctions, we’ll be your guide to teach you everything you need to know about the selling process.

1. Prepare your property for sale

If you have home improvement projects that you’ve been putting off for years, now is the time to do them. Some projects are worth fixing to increase the value of your home, while other projects might make it sell faster. Consider talking to your realtor about what the best choice is for you. 

2. Find the right realtor or auctioneer

Finding a realtor or auctioneer can take a significant load off your shoulders. At Kaufman Realty & Auctions, we give you plenty of agents to choose from, so you can find one near you.  

3. Choose to sell by auction or listing

Next, you need to decide whether to sell your property by auction or listing. There are pros and cons to each method. At Kaufman Realty & Auctions, we have experience selling in a variety of ways and can help you decide which is best for your situation.  

4. Determine property value

It’s hard to know the true value of your property unless you sell it at auction. Some key factors to consider are the unique characteristics of your property, the housing supply and demand, along with the value of your neighboring properties.  

Or contact Kaufman Realty & Auctions. With more than 40 years of experience serving the housing needs of our community, we understand the real estate market and can provide a professional market analysis report to help you determine the value of your home.  

5. Promote your property

When you work with Kaufman Realty, we take care of the marketing and promotion of your property, so you don’t have to. Here are several ways we advertise properties:  

  • Multiple listing service (MLS) 
  • Open houses 
  • Websites/internet 
  • Print advertising 
  • HOMES™ Magazines 
  • Kaufman Realty marketing strategies 

6. Accept an offer 

This is where the negotiation happens. At Kaufman Realty, we’ll be your advocate and negotiate on your behalf. When a potential buyer makes an offer on your property, you have two options: accept the offer or counter. Remember that the buyer can request that certain updates be made before closing. As a seller, you may also counter that request by dropping the price, accordingly. 

7. Closing the sale

Closing the sale normally takes 30 days, depending on home inspections, lender conditions, etc. When you work with Kaufman Realty, we’ll take care of this process.  

8. Start packing!

Congratulations! Once you sell your property, you are taking a step forward toward your next adventure in life. Now it’s time to pack your things. Ask your Kaufman Realty agent if you need recommendations for moving companies or businesses that often have extra boxes.
