MEET WITH ME
The journey begins with establishing rapport, wants/needs, and counseling about the selling process. Our collective goal at Rector Hayden is to lead, teach & serve you through the seller's journey.
AGREE ON A SELLING PLAN
Agreeing on a selling plan involves reviewing market conditions and the tools available to test the market at the agreed price and state of the home/property.
Painting, decor, reducing clutter, landscaping helps sell the home. You cannot change the home's location, and you can change the condition.
This is where you officially partner with Katie and Rector Hayden. The listing paperwork kicks off Rector Hayden's team to legally and officially tell the world your home is for sale.
A Home Warranty service contract can help protect your budget from costly surprise repairs and replace your home's covered effective mechanical systems and appliances components. Adding a warranty during the listing period may help reduce your "out-of-pocket" expenses from covered breakdowns.

The number one item desired by buyers when viewing homes online is photos.
We make every effort to provide agents with information and access to your home. Our Rector Hayden systems help spread the word about your home to the world.
After agents and consumers see your home online, they may want to visit the house and get a much better feel. We call these "showings."
Market conditions determine the price buyers will pay. Price adjustments may be needed if no showings and offers occur. Price adjustments are a NORMAL part of a seller's journey.
The buyer's agent contacts the seller's agent to place an offer. The seller's agent then contacts the home seller to present the terms and conditions of the offer.
Not all parties think alike; negotiations are a NORMAL part of the seller's journey.
As the seller, you can agree to an offer or counter-offer. It is FAIR and REASONABLE for parties to counter offer. At some point in the process, the buyer and seller agree.
The buyer will write in the accepted offer in most transactions to have a property inspected, and inspections are a NORMAL part of the journey.
After inspections, requests may be made for repairs. It is FAIR and REASONABLE for this request to be made. It is your choice to make the repairs - most sellers do.
BUYER CLOSING PROCESS
You are waiting for the buyer's side to go through the processes to transfer the property legally. Further negotiations may be needed to keep your seller's journey on track.
This is where you meet to sign the legal papers to transfer ownership & collect any money due at the closing.
