The Home Selling Process

Selling Your Home in Greater BostonAre you selling a home in the Greater Boston area for the first time? Or has it been a while since you’ve sold a property? If so, it’s helpful to get a general overview of the selling process from start to finish. Here are the basic steps.

1. Find a Real Estate Agent

The agents at Barrett Sotheby’s International Realty will guide you through each step of the selling process. We will help you navigate the market with confidence by sharing our local expertise and we will look out for your best interests.

Once you've chosen a real estate agent, you'll sign an agreement that gives the agent exclusive rights to list your home on the market.

3. Get a Market Analysis

Your agent will provide a comparative market analysis and recommend the best listing price for your home. You’ll find out how much your property is worth so you can price it competitively to sell in the local market. Our team provides you with an accurate Opinion of Value based on statistical data.

6. Get Offers

Your agent will negotiate any offers received on your behalf. If market conditions are good and your home is priced right, you may receive multiple offers. We will continue to negotiate with your best interests in mind until you receive an offer you are willing to accept. 

7. Close
