The Selling Process

Maria Huff Schilling

A snapshot of what it’s like to sell your house with me – Your Northern Kentucky REALTORⓇ, Maria Huff Schilling

Selling your home is a big decision.

Once you’ve made the choice to sell your home, you want to know you have a qualified agent to work for YOU. To get your home sold and at the proper price.

After being in the business for 16 years, I can tell you that I’ve worked through a lot of scenarios for my sellers. We’ve worked through a lot of emotions together and made it through to the other side of the sale.

If you’re experiencing –
➔ Worry
➔ Fear
➔ Sadness
➔ Confusion
➔ Anxiety/Stress
➔ Frustration
➔ Overwhelm

I’m here to let you know that this is normal! Your home is a big part of you and letting go of it and handing it over to another family is stressful. It’s a leap that you’re not always sure you’re ready to make. But sometimes, life brings you to the point where you NEED to let it go. Maybe you need more space for your growing family, maybe you need LESS space so your home is easier to manage, or maybe you want more land so you can farm.

Whatever the reason is, it can be hard BUT it can also be very exciting. That’s where we look forward to the exciting opportunities in front of you.

I’m here to help you see the good that can come from selling your home and starting a new chapter in a new home that meets your needs.

How It Starts

Once you’ve decided to take the first step towards selling, give me a call and we’ll decide on a time and place to meet that works for you.

During this meeting, we’ll discuss my selling process, your timeline, possible open houses, staging (and if it’s needed), and also the market value of your home so we can work towards a listing price.

If you’re unsure if you’re ready to sell but want to know the value of your home, I have a great resource for you! Click here → Get My Home Value Report to submit a request for the market value of your home.

Your Home Value

Determining the fair market value of your home is one of the most important aspects of selling  your home. It is VERY important for the listing price of your home to be accurate from the very beginning. If it’s under or over-priced your home could sit on the market longer than you’d like making it harder to sell and in the end, you may not get the best price for your home. This is what I don’t want to happen for you and will work to avoid.

As a licensed Northern Kentucky RealtorⓇ with access to MLS data, I will evaluate data from your neighborhood and the overall real estate market to determine the market value of your home.

When we meet at our first consultation, I will bring this information and explain it all in detail so you can feel comfortable and confident in the listing price. Rest assured, we can talk about the numbers and I’ll answer any questions that you may have!

My goal with determining the list price is to get you the best price for your home (that is a fair value for buyers) but also a price that will sell your home so it doesn’t sit on the market too long.

Next Steps

Now you’ve decided to sell, we’ve met and decided on your listing price, and you know what to expect throughout the process.

Next – we get your home listed! But, what do I do for my listings to make your listing stand out and sell??

➔ Professional Photos
➔ Staging if needed
➔ Marketing
➔ Word of mouth with a network of hundreds of agents

These few tasks go a LONG WAY for a listing!

In today’s world, homes are getting viewed online more and more. If your home’s online presence isn’t up to par, it could easily get looked over. So, rest assured I put great effort into getting your home looking amazing so professional photos that will wow buyers and get you offers!


As your professional Northern Kentucky RealtorⓇ and an agent with Huff RealtorsⓇ, we have a marketing team and a professional admin team behind us to help us with our marketing.

When your home gets listed, I have access to professional flyers, brochures, postcards and any other marketing materials we may need to get your home viewed as a MUST-HAVE property.

Managing Offers

Your home is listed, you’ve had buyers come for showings and now, offers are coming in!

One of the great things about working with a professional real estate agent is that they have negotiating powers and the ability to see each offer at face value.

Not every offer that comes to you will be the right one for you. Factors such as the type of financing, price, contingencies and closing timeline will make an impact on your choice.

I’ll help you look at each offer in detail and determine which one will work best for your specific situation. You don’t have to do this alone – in today’s busy market this could be very overwhelming. Communication with the other agents will be done by me so no need to worry about what to say or how to communicate any bad news to possible buyers.

I’ll Be There till Closing Day

Once we’ve decided on an offer to accept we go through inspections, make any necessary repairs or negotiations with the buyer and move on to closing day.

I’ll help guide you through each step and be the first point of contact. And I’ll always be there for your questions – because you’ll probably have quite a few!

Look, I know there are A LOT of RealtorsⓇ out there and the choice you make is important. Real estate is most likely the biggest investment you’ll make in your life and you want to put it in the hands of someone you can trust to handle it carefully.

I want you to know that I’m here for YOU – To help you so you can feel safe in the moves you make in real estate.
