Home Sale Timeline
1. Design Appointment
Once you have chosen the Kei Real Estate Team as your listing agent, we begin with a
kick off meeting where you meet the people entrusted to sell your home. This includes a design appointment where our designer visits the property to come up with
recommendations on presenting your home in the best possible light.
2. Vendor Appointment
After making a list of recommended improvements (those that will yield the most return
on sale), and a rough listing calender timeline, we meet at your property with vendors to provide quotes on the improvements. Our network of vendors bid on the work for your home and break down the costs associated with the proposed work. You are always free to approve or reject any recommendations.
3. Disclosure Appointment
Meet with our attorney who walks you through the required seller disclosures to make
sure you fulfill the legal disclosure obligations when selling your home. This means
disclosing all the necessary facts required by law, while doing so in a way that ensures it does not alarm potential buyers from putting in an offer.
4. Staging and Inspections
Professional staging, property, and pest inspections (all of which we pay for) are performed on your property so that any interested buyers see the full potential of your home and can submit a confident offer.
Our marketing team meets at your prepped and staged home for professional photography,
videography, and a 3-D tour to broadcast your home to the masses. Details of your home
are published and advertised through the Multiple Listing Service, social media, Google, newspapers, and direct mailers to renters in the area that are likely to buy to drive
the maximum amount of visitors to your open house.
6. Open House
Potential buyers that have seen your home through targeted advertising have a chance to visit your prepped and staged property during extended open house hours. They are
greeted by a host that is able to explain the intimate details of your home while
enjoying catered snacks and beverages.
7. Review Offers
We review all offers with you and guide you through the specifics of the contract and
offer terms to ensure an informed decision and the benefits or drawbacks of accepting
8. Closing and Funds!
We coordinate with escrow for a seamless and smooth transition of the property to the
new buyer, ensuring that the initial deposit, appraisal, and escrow sign-off are all
performed without a hitch. The only thing you need to worry about is handing over your
keys to the new homeowner and telling escrow where to wire your proceeds.
