There are several steps involved in selling your property with RE/MAX of Midland. They're not complicated, but each is important. Here's what you can expect once you decide to list your home with us.

Your agent will explain to you the basic agency relationships and ask you to sign a disclosure form that verifies the agreed-upon partnership with your RE/MAX of Midland REALTOR.

A RE/MAX of Midland agent meets with you to walk your property, discuss your home's strengths and weaknesses and talk about your desired selling price. Feel free to ask any questions now, or at any time during the process. Your REALTOR also may suggest ways to make your property more marketable.

Your agent will help you determine your selling price, based upon the marketing features of your home. Your agent will also conduct a market analysis focusing on comparable properties sold in your area.

When the initial review and analysis are finished, and a market price is agreed upon, you will formally sign a listing agreement and complete a State of Michigan-required disclosure form, This disclosure form lists and describes the material facts of your home.

Your property is listed with the Multiple Listing Service, a "For Sale" sign is posted in your yard and comprehensive advertising begins. Your home will be published in the Multiple Listing Service Magazine, which lists all property for sale through the Midland Board of Realtors.

Your agent initiates a marketing plan that is tailored specially for your home. It may include anything from newspaper advertisements to an open house, depending on your property.

Please understand that flexibility is important. You may be asked to show your home at an inconvenient time, but please try to accommodate the prospect's request. This may be the buyer.

When interested, a buyer may make an offer to purchase your home. The offer will be communicated to you through your RE/MAX of Midland agent in the form of a purchase agreement.

Negotiation begins. As the seller, you have the option to accept the prospect's offer, reject the offer or make a counter offer.

When the parties have agreed upon a sale price and terms, a final purchase agreement is developed. This document directs all remaining aspects of the transaction, including financial application and approval dates, appraisals and inspections, contingency fulfillment and closing.

A formal closing takes place. Congratulations! Your property is officially sold and a check is handed over to you.
