The Breakdown of Steps Involved in the Home Selling Process!
by William Greene
As a Senior Transition Specialist, there are many families who aren’t familiar with the steps involved in the home selling process. After all, we don’t exactly do that every day (or year….or decade)! For many families, selling their senior parents’ home is a key part of financing the transition to a senior living community. Understanding the process can help make the journey smoother and less stressful. Here is a Breakdown of Steps Involved in Home Selling Process…(along with the complaints!)
Preparation (“I don’t have time to fix or clean all this stuff!!”)
The first step involves preparing the home for sale. This could mean decluttering, deep cleaning, repairing any major issues, and possibly staging the home to make it more appealing to potential buyers.
Market Analysis and Pricing (“Well, my neighbor’s house sold for $600,000, so mine should, too!” )
A real estate professional can provide a market analysis to help you determine a competitive selling price. Pricing right is essential to attract buyers and maximize returns.
Listing the Home (“I don’t want a bunch of strangers traipsing through my carpets!”)
The house is then listed for sale, which includes marketing the home online and offline, hosting open houses, and showcasing the home to potential buyers.
Negotiation and Contract (“I agreed to their offer and contract. Why are they wanting to pay less now??”)
Once a buyer makes an offer, negotiations occur. Once both parties agree on terms, a contract is signed. This contract will include the selling price and terms of the sale.
Inspections and Appraisals (“They can inspect all they want. I’m not fixing anything. They should know that!”)
Most buyers will require a home inspection. The lender will also require an appraisal to ensure the home’s value.
Closing the Sale (“I signed a contract over a month ago. Why haven’t we closed yet??”)
Finally, the legal paperwork is signed at the closing meeting, the buyer pays the seller, and ownership of the house is transferred.
Selling a home can be a complex process, or an easy one, should you simply do a cash deal. The offer might be less than what a listing would bring, but you would avoid realtor commissions of 5% to 6% and all the fixing and cleaning. As a professional helping families through this journey, I am here to assist, whether that’s answering questions, helping to navigate the process, or exploring other potential financial resources for senior living.

Mom’s Equity – We Buy Mom’s House, Fast, for Cash!
We are PROFESSIONAL SENIOR LIVING TRANSITION SPECIALISTS!
As of April 2022, we have been trained & certified to help families transition Mom (or Dad) into a senior living community by liquidating Mom’s House to cover much needed assisted living or independent living costs. We also help with donating, selling, or throwing out all of Mom’s belongings while also closing on the family’s timeline. We work with downsizing and moving professionals who gracefully help with this important transition.
MOM’S EQUITY helps seniors eliminate the stress of repairing, cleaning, and selling Mom’s house. We help families, who have a loved one, move into senior living communities, gracefully and with care and love. We happily work with families who are transitioning Mom and/or Dad at one of the most sensitive and potentially stressful times of their lives.
We’re not listing your house – as we are not realtors! We’re actually the ones buying your house. Because we pay cash, we’re able to close quickly… or on your timeline. This creates the financial liquidity to get seniors into the best care community possible.
When you work with us there are no fees… such as what you would pay when you list your house with an agent. What this means to you is you don’t have to worry about extra costs, having to come out of pocket to sell your house fast, or even getting your house ready for a sale.
We’ll buy Mom’s house as-is. What’s more, is that we also have downsizing professionals who can take care of decluttering Mom’s house.
From sorting through years of memories, working with estate planners, coordinating movers and real estate agents to designing a functional and comfortable floor plan, our compassionate and experienced professionals can be involved as much or as little as you like. We’ll serve as your family’s advocate, ensuring your best interests are kept in mind throughout the process.
Don’t worry about repairing or cleaning up your property. We’ll buy your house in as-is condition… no matter how ugly or pretty it is…
no matter the location.
