Selling Your Home 

Corrine Hyman Quast has more than 20 years of experience as a realtor at Williams Trew, Fort Worth’s leading residential real estate brokerage firm.


She’s helped hundreds of families buy their first home, upgrade to a larger home for their growing family and sell inherited properties.

The selling process 

Select a realtor familiar with your home's neighborhood 

This is the single most important decision you make when deciding to sell your house.

  • Do your research.

  • Ask for recommendations.

  • Look into their years of experience and sales history.

  • And most importantly, make sure your personalities are a good fit, as you'll be working together under some stressful situations. And just be aware that even though your friends, it doesn't necessarily mean that your "business" relationship will be the same as your personal friendship. 

Schedule your first consultation with your real estate agent or interviews with various agents if you haven't chosen an agent yet

  • Your agent will walk your property with you, assessing whether any improvements or small fixes need to be made before putting it on the market.

  • This is your opportunity to:

    • Ask questions

    • Share your expectations on how you will work together (IE - decide up front on the best way to communicate with each other and how often you want updates)

    • The price you're hoping to get for your home

    • Any sort of specific timeline you're on.

    • Other important details. Ex: Will you be selling your home on a contingency offer? Are you moving to another city or state? 

Determine the listing price for your home 

  • This is done by reviewing data sheets of similar houses in your neighborhood that have sold recently. These are also known as comparables or "comps." The right comps will include homes in your neighborhood with similar square footage, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, how recently updated they were updated, when they were purchased, etc. You will review these with your real estate agent. 

  • This is where trusting your realtor is crucial. If you selected a real estate agent who truly has their pulse on the market, specifically your neighborhood, it will be priced correctly from the beginning. Well-priced properties generate a high-percentage of buyers willing to pay at least asking price, if not more, which greatly increases the interest and competition in putting an offer in on your home.

  • Once the listing price has been site, it's time to start marketing your home to potential buyers.  Your agent will create a marketing plan for your home that could include a mix of any of the below marketing tactics: 

Closing the deal: Appraising your home's value, negotiation between interested buyers, accepting the offer and setting a timeline for closing. 

  • This is admittedly the most stressful part of the whole process of selling your home and the part that you have the least control over. Again, this is where you depend on your realtor keep an open line of communication with you.

The waiting game 

If all goes well, this part of the process won't take long and you'll be celebrating with your agent and family in no time! The most important thing is to manage your expectations and do your best to stay patient as there are a lot of moving parts during this process.
