LISTING STEPS 01 Initial Consultation (1-2 Hours) During your initial consultation, we will conduct a walk-through of your home to learn about its various and best features and to make recommendations for certain repairs to increase its value and/or marketability. We will also present a Comparative Market Analysis to determine a competitive asking price. Finally, we will discuss an effective marketing plan for the sale of your home.

02 Listing Agreement (2-3 Days) Before your home can be listed for sale, the law requires that you enter into a written and signed Listing Agreement with your Agent. This Agreement specifies the terms to your understanding and you will be given a copy of it for your records. Once the Listing Agreement is signed, the selling process can begin.

03 Marketing (During Active Listing) Hines Real Estate Advisory's extensive social media presence ensures your home is seen by as many potential buyers as possible. If necessary, your home will be professionally photographed and maybe even staged. Such photos can also be used to market your home on 200+ websites and applications, including the Multiple Listing Service. In addition to online marketing, a " For Sale" sign will be placed on your property to attract local buyers and your agent will likely schedule and host Open Houses as needed and possibly a Brokers' Open.

04 Active Listing (Varies by Area) During the time your home is actively for sale, we will monitor which buying agents are showing your home to potential buyers and will seek feedback from those agents. Also, we understand that this can be an anxious time as things can take longer than hoped, but we will work continuously to make sure that Hines Real Estate Advisory is doing the best it can to sell your home quickly and at top dollar.

05 Offer and Acceptance (2-3 Days) When an interested buyer wants to make an offer, we will negotiate on your behalf with the Buyer?s agent (unless a Dual Agent in DC or VA). Upon receiving a written offer, we will review it with you so its pros and cons can be discussed. Then, we will help you determine whether to accept it or to make a counteroffer. Once you and the Buyer have executed a Contract of Sale, you will know the dates by which various items must be completed in order to settle on the agreed upon Settlement Date.

06 Home Inspection, Appraisal & Loan Commitment (Up to 4 Weeks from Contract) Depending on the specific term of your Contract of Sale, the Buyer may hire a licensed home inspector to inspect the home to determine what, if any repairs are needed. It is possible that the Buyer's agent will negotiate through us for payment of such repairs. Thereafter, the Buyer's lender will have the home appraised. If the appraised value of your home falls below the purchase price, there may be additional negotiation of the purchase price so that the Buyer can properly secure a mortgage. If the appraisal meets or exceeds the agreed upon purchase price, then the lender will likely issue a loan commitment to the Buyer. 07 Settlement (5-7 Weeks from Contract) Just before Settlement, the Buyer will conduct a final walk-through of the home to ensure that it is in the same or better condition than when the Contract of Sale was executed and to check what repairs, if any, were completed. At Settlement, you will sign the Deed over the Buyer in exchange for payment. In addition, you will sign other various documents as necessary to consummate the transaction and any outstanding debts owed by you such as mortgage(s), taxes, condo fees and other settlement costs will be deducted from your proceeds. Congratulations, your home is sold.

Disruption | A New Era of Real Estate Through a new wave of industry disruptors, real estate consumers have limitless data available to them instantly through their smart phone devices. They have the power to conduct their own research and ultimately drive their own buying and selling decisions. Top of mind for a buyer is satisfying their own specific needs which is finding the envisioned style of home in the desirable neighborhood that fits the established price point and is available within the necessary time line. Everything else is secondary. The syndication of listed homes from MLS to all of the major home search sites (Zillow, Trulia,, etc) provide enough of the preliminary details needed for consumers to make their own initial home buying considerations. Once buyers learn of the listing brokerage they have already made the decision whether to make an appointment to see the property. •

“44% of home buyers are conducting home searches before even contacting a Realtor.” - National Association of Realtors (NAR)

Finding a home that fits all of the buyer’s criteria is a challenge on its own, especially with the current market and its limited inventory. The listing brokerage would not dissuade them from moving forward with a home poised to be the right fit.

The success of iBuyer programs and discount brokerages have further shown how the significance of brokerage branding has diminished. Cost savings and speed at which a home can be turned around are leading priorities for many buyers and sellers. If a company can guarantee these things then their brand name is irrelevant to consumers. •

iBuyer sites (Opendoor, Knock, OfferPad, and even Redfin and Zillow) are providing instant offers to home sellers, site unseen with the ability to close within days.

Discount brokers (Redfin) are only charging home sellers as little as 1% listing fees.

Smith | Schnider provides superior market intelligence for what is typically the largest financial transaction in a customer’s lifetime.
