How Long Will It Take to Sell My House?

When you’re ready to sell your house, one of the first questions you might ask is, “How long will it take?” Generally speaking, from the moment you accept an offer, it usually takes about 45-60 days to complete the sale. But what happens before that? Let’s break down the journey to selling your home, step by step.

1. Select the Right Agent
Your journey begins with choosing the right real estate agent. This is where Jones Hollow Realty Group comes in. As your agent, we guide you through the selling process, from listing your house to handing over the keys to the new owners.

2. Repair and Deep Clean
Next, it’s time to roll up your sleeves. Repair any nagging issues and give your home a deep clean. Think of it as prepping your house for its big debut. A house that’s in tip-top shape is more appealing to buyers.

3. Declutter and Depersonalize
Now, focus on making your home a blank canvas. Declutter and depersonalize. This means removing family photos, personal items, and anything else that makes your home “yours.” The goal is to help potential buyers envision themselves living there.

4. Price It Right
Pricing your home correctly is crucial. Set the price too high, and your house could linger on the market. Too low, and you might not get the value your home deserves. Your agent at Jones Hollow Realty Group will help you find that sweet spot.

5. Market It Well
Marketing is where the magic happens. Your agent will list your home across all available platforms for the best exposure. This could include online listings, social media, and even traditional methods like open houses.

6. Review Offers and Select the Best
Once the offers start rolling in, it’s time to review them with your agent. This isn’t just about the highest bid; it’s about finding the offer that best meets your needs.

7. Home Inspection (If Requested)
If the buyer requests a home inspection, this is typically the next step. It’s a chance for them to check for any unseen issues before finalizing the deal.

8. Prepare and Sign Contracts
The final stretch! Your agent at Jones Hollow Realty Group will help you prepare and sign the necessary contracts. They’ll be with you every step of the way, ensuring everything is in order.

The Timeline in a Seller’s Market
In a seller’s market, like the one we’re currently experiencing, the timeline can move quickly. If you’ve followed the above steps diligently, your home could go from just listed to under contract in less than a week. The closing process then typically takes 45-60 days, which is standard for buyers to finalize their financing and for the title search to be completed. Remember, cash purchases can expedite this process even further.

Selling your house is a journey, and with Jones Hollow Realty Group by your side, it can be a smooth and rewarding one. Let’s get your house sold!
