When selling your home, there are a lot of steps to remember along the way. When listing with The Village Partners, we have support staff who will remind you of important dates and what is coming up. However, it’s always a good idea to have an overview of the process ahead of time. Below are some of the steps that you’ll go through when selling your home. If you have questions, we’re always happy to help!

  1. A prospective Seller considering selling their home should connect with an Agent, or several if you don’t already have one in mind
  2. The Agent presents a Competitive Market Analysis, a Marketing Plan and suggests improvements for getting the home ready to sell
