Preparing to Sell Your Michigan Home

Here are the key steps to selling a home in Michigan and how we can help make the process easier:

Step One: Pre-market Consultation

First impressions count. We’ve seen thousands of properties, and are uniquely skilled in helping sellers understand what they can do to properly prepare their home for sale. To schedule a pre-market consultation and learn more, click here. For DIYers, you can sign up for our First to Know service and find out what homes are listing and selling for in your area. You’ll be alerted to new listings coming on the market, recently sold homes, price changes, and open houses. Register here to get started.

Step Two: Learn your home’s True Value

Get help in establishing the right asking price based on numbers and facts. Asking too much might ultimately be more costly than asking too little for your property. Our professionally prepared Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) is available at no charge or obligation. To request a CMA, click here.

Step Three: Choose a Real Estate Professional

Select an experienced real estate professional to sell your home. Choose from thousands of the area’s leading real estate agents. If you’ve worked with us before, look up your Real Estate One associate. If you haven’t, we’ll help you find the right professional here.

Step Four: Choose a Title Insurance Company

In Michigan, the seller chooses the Title company to do the title search and perform the closing. Our Title company, Capital Title, is one of the largest and most thorough Title companies in Michigan. Ask your agent to tell you more about Capital Title and why you should select them.

Step Five: Show Your Home and Negotiate a Deal

When you work with us, you get an app to view your showings and are able to confirm showings via the app, a text, or a call or have your agent take care of scheduling for you. Our company uses a state of the art transaction system to process your paperwork electronically, securely, and efficiently to make the negotiating process as pain-free as possible.

Other Steps: Moving out of the Area
