The 10 Steps of
Selling Your Home
With Reppi Real Estate
At Reppi Real Estate we are here to help you with every step of the Home Selling Process from Making a Plan to Closing the Sale!
Step 1: The Home Owner
Gathers Legal Documents
If you don’t already have your Title/Abstract in your possession, the next place to check is with the attorney who represented you when you purchased the home.
The deed was probably mailed to you after your closing. If you don’t have it, check with the attorney who represented you when you purchased the home.
You can have a new survey drawn, but if you don’t have it in your possession, check with the attorney who represented you when you purchased the home.
Your bank is probably mailing (or emailing) you monthly statements and these usually have all the information you need if you don’t have the original paperwork.
Step 2: Together with a
Reppi Real Estate Specialist,
establish a price & marketing plan
Reppi Real Estate will create a Comparative Market Analysis for your home so you know the current value of your home based on recent sales of similar homes in your area. Value is also influenced by your home’s location, school district, upgrades, maintenance, or more.
A Reppi Real Estate Specialist will create a custom marketing plan for your property, including a variety of digital and physical marketing materials (yard sign, photographs, video, listing on multiple sites, and sent directly to qualified buyers).
- home upgrades & maintenance
- school district ranking
- Age of home

Step 3: Home Owner
Prepares House For Sale
Level 1: Before Listing
Before your home can be listed we’ll want to take high quality photos (and possibly videos) of your home to use in the listing and other marketing materials. Some things you’ll want to do:
- Declutter (put unnecessary items in storage)
- Pack away family photos and personal items
- Clean the house from top to bottom
Level 2: Improve Curb Appeal
A little investment goes a long way when improving a buyer’s first impression of your home. The return on investment comes in the form of higher offers and a quicker sale time.
Some great projects:
- Touch up detail paint
- Eliminate pests like mice and bees
- Power spray the siding, walkways, and decking
Level 3: Speed up Negotiations
If there is considerable deferred maintenance in your home, there’s a good chance it will show up on a home inspection. If your goal is to sell for top dollar consider these projects:
- Replace rotted wood
- Complete neglected repairs
- Have the exterior of the home repainted
