Home Seller’s Guide

Your home is probably your single most valuable asset. That is why we always go the extra mile in providing you with the highest level of real estate service that will make us your preferred real estate professional.

Selling your home can be one of the most exciting times or it can be a very stressful time. We work together to make the process simple, straight forward, and as stress-free as possible. We’ll employ a variety of strategies to help get your home sold for the highest price and as quick as possible.

What is the first step to selling my home?

We’ll meet with you at your home and have you give us a tour. We will come equipped with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). After touring your home, we will go over comps in your area and determine the best pricing strategy for your home. We will discuss your ideal timeline for selling your home, what you need to get out of your home and even provide you with a Net Proceeds Sheet which will outline how much you will receive from the sale of your home if you were to sell at different prices. If all of the terms are agreed upon, we will enter into a listing agreement and will begin marketing your home for sale.

How is my home’s value determined?

To determine your home’s value, we look at homes in your neighborhood that have sold in the last 6-12 months and find homes with similar square footage, features, property size, etc. We then look at what those homes sold for and how different or better your home is to those and make an appropriate adjustment to our price based on those factors. We try to price your home as close to what you feel it is worth, however, to ensure it sells quickly and for top dollar, we do our best to make our valuations based on real data from sold homes in your community.

What kind of marketing will you do to help sell my home?

We employ a wide variety of marketing strategies to help you sell your home fast and for top dollar. We always start with professional photos of your home, but we may also make suggestions on how to stage your home or remove clutter in order to make it as marketable as possible. We will list your home on Mibor.com as well as many other popular real estate websites like Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, etc. We may also do an open house, or send out mailers, but we put a lot of emphasis on the value of digital marketing. We try to reach buyers where they spend the majority of the time, online and on social media like Instagram and Facebook. Whether we run Facebook ads promoting the best features of your home, shoot drone footage to showcase your home’s beautiful or unique property, or we shoot live videos as we tour your home for potential buyers, we will always make sure your property will get the best visibility possible so the right buyer finds it fast.

How much does it cost to sell my home?

There are many factors that go into the cost of selling a home. We charge our sellers 6% commission of the sale price of the home. This is 3% to the buyers agent and 3% to our agent. In some cases, if we are also helping you buy a home, we can arrange for a lower seller’s fee. There may also be some fees associated with closing costs. Closing costs include things like Title Insurance, lender fees, etc.

How long will it take to sell my home?

Currently the average amount of time to sell a home is 60-90 days. However, that can all depend on market factors, time of year, whether it’s a buyer or seller’s market, if your home is priced appropriately, and more. We do our best to make sure your home gets the most visibility possible and is priced appropriately to ensure it sells as quickly as possible. Many homes sell must quicker than that.

Once my home is listed, how often will I hear from my agent?

We do our best to stay in contact with you as often as possible. We will communicate with you after every showing to provide feedback from the agent, we will communicate on a weekly basis to discuss how often your home was viewed, then we will communicate monthly to discuss if we need to make any adjustments to price, update staging, etc. to give your property the best opportunity to sell moving forward. We are advocates for you and so staying in communication is how we understand your thoughts and feelings about the process, how we can improve, and ultimately to help deliver as much information about what is going on with your listing as possible.

“Tosha searched for over a year for just the right house for me. She found it & since I was dealing long distance on most issues, she helped me with inspections & other tasks needed before I could close on a new build in Nehalem. Every part of this endeavor went smoothly because of Tosha’s knowledge & dedication to her clients. I highly recommend her!”

“Tosha is everything and exactly what you need in a real estate partner. She's smart, savvy, responsive and fun to work with. She keeps her cool in tense moments and, better yet, helps you keep yours. She puts the client above all. You feel supported, heard and important. Her nuanced expertise in the coastal real estate market is incredibly helpful whether you're a local or a weekender. With Tosha I sold one home in three days while she expertly shepherded me through a complex transaction on another. For me, on the coast, Tosha is the best.”

“Tosha was wonderful helping my husband and me with the purchase of our home in Manzanita. She shared her extensive knowledge of both the local real estate market and the home buying process. Tosha responded quickly, thoroughly answering any questions and addressing any concerns we had. The somewhat stressful process of buying a home was made enjoyable working with Tosha. She was a true advocate for us and we strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a great real estate agent.”

“Let me begin by stating that as real estate investors in Arizona, we have worked with many realtors for both personal and business transactions. Working with someone out of state (Oregon), and unknown to us was initially worrisome, however Tosha won our business and our trust immediately out the gate. She presented herself in an equal balance of non-pressuring representation and professional advocacy. Tosha protected our best interest throughout the process, never causing us to feel rushed, often telling us that whatever it took for us to feel comfortable was what was most important to her.... and because of her support, experience, and recommendations we wound up buying a house that is truly perfect for us, at a price we felt fair. Additionally, Tosha has continued to be helpful to us post-sale, aiding in things unfamiliar to us in our new residence, responding to our calls quickly, and efficiently. We are beyond pleased and would recommend Tosha without hesitation!”

“We hired Tosha after our listing expired with another Realtor. She took charge, immediately helped us make the house more attractive. She was the best realtor we have ever had the experience to deal with. An offer was made within six weeks of Tosha taking charge. We highly recommend her to anyone seeking to buy or sell.”

“Tosha is the absolute best Realtor my wife and I have worked with. She was proactive, very communicative, and willing to go far above and beyond what was expected to provide great customer experience. She was key in helping us find our vacation property, acting as our eyes and ears and local voice to us in Colorado. I wouldn't think of working with anyone else.”
