Selling Your Home
Everything starts with communication. Schedule a consultation with us so we can assess the market value of your property based on our customized CMA (Comparative Market Analysis). Together, we will discuss your expectations and run through the entire process of the sale. Once we have agreed on sale price, time frame, and preparedness of the house we will guide you every step of the way. We will provide tools to make the process seamless and stress-free. We at Urban Life hope that our core values of professionalism, passion, innovation, and success will give you assurance that you are in good hands.
Get Ready To Sell
Remember the saying “first impressions last”? If necessary, we will recommend upgrades and/or staging to help prepare your home to make it buyer-ready. We have a trusted list of contractors and vendors to facilitate any improvements to help make your property land strong in the market.

Negotiate The Offer
Dealing with prospective buyers is one of the most exciting – and intimidating – stages of selling your home. Once we receive an offer, we will schedule a time to review all aspects of the transaction. Keep in mind that the offer price is only one element in the transaction. We at Urban Life are experienced negotiators and are seasoned to command the best price and terms for your home.
Once the contract is accepted, we will handle all details of the transaction, including coordinating the home inspection and appraisal, oversee all the paperwork and supervise the closing process.
Congratulations! The closing is the legal process of transferring ownership. This serves as the final step of your journey to selling your home. Before the big day, we will confirm that the mortgage process is complete, schedule the final walk through, review the final closing documents, and discuss all other specifics so that you feel confident and know what to expect.
After The Closing
Closing the sale does not mean that we will also end our relationship with you. In fact, we will continue to be your Realtor® even after the sale. Feel free to reach us when you want to ask post-closing questions, trace documents, or just catch up on what’s new in your life. We will keep our communication lines open for you.
