At Home Bay, one of the most frequently asked home selling questions is “How does it all work?”. We understand why it is critical to understand the home selling process - selling a home is a major transaction and possibly one of the biggest transactions in an individual’s life. In our professional opinion, an informed home seller is the best kind and will likely make the most profit from their home sale.
The selling process may seem confusing and complex. Home Bay wants to make it simple and straightforward, starting with our site, Homebay.com, that guides sellers every step of the way and a team of experienced real estate agents (who rank in the top 1% nationally) handling all the heavy lifting.
From your first interaction with our team - to the sale of your property, there are 7 easy steps along the home selling journey with Home Bay that will take you from “For Sale” to “Sold”!
Step 1: Get Started With Homebay.com
Getting started is easy. Tell us about your home for sale, the address of the property, your ideal timeline and your goals with the sale are and we will start guiding you through the home selling process. Remember, we won’t lock you into a lengthy contract like a traditional Realtor(R) and our low flat fee always comes in at less than 1%.
Step 2: Set Up Your Listing
A Home Bay real estate agent guides you through every step to getting your listing set up. Our technology makes it easy to schedule professional photography and yard sign installation to accommodate your own schedule. One of our expert team members will discuss pricing strategy and expected costs of your home sale.
Step 3: Market Your Home
We can start marketing your home almost immediately through the Zillow Coming Soon feature that Home Bay includes for all home sellers. Get eyes on your property before it is even listed on the market in order to sell your home fast! Once you are ready, simply click the “Go Live” button and your listing will be distributed to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), along with other major real estate websites including Zillow, Trulia, Redfin and Realtor.com to maximize visibility.
Step 4: Home Showings
Manage your showing requests online or have the buyer’s agents contact your Home Bay real estate agent directly. We coordinate with you to make sure everything works with your schedule. Remember, Home Bay agents assist remotely, so they don’t come to your house for showings. This saves us money, and we pass along those savings to our sellers by reducing the costs of selling your home.
Step 5: Review Offers
Review all incoming offers and accept offers or counter directly on the Home Bay platform. We give you an easy to follow overview and including alerts of anything that doesn’t look normal. Your dedicated real estate agent helps you navigate each offer as it comes in to ensure you get the best deal.
Step 6: Prepare for Closing
The next step in the home selling process is preparing for the closing day. Once you have an offer you are prepared to accept, we help you prepare for closing with final inspections and contingency removals. We manage all paperwork digitally, so your closing is both seamless and stress-free.
