For those of you who are unfamiliar with PMPL, it is a tool that allows you to create a workable schedule. This is a pretty big deal, because there are so many things that go into preparing a house for sale and the sale process. Having a pre-sale plan allows you to be more strategic, and it allows you to plan the sale properly and within your budget.
A pre-sale plan is a basic step in the sale process and it is a necessary step. But there’s a ton of other stuff that goes into a sale that is more like a puzzle than a simple sales process. For example, there are about a dozen things that go into the sale, and these things are all designed to sell your home faster for less money.
The process of selling a house is pretty unique, and there are dozens of things that go into it, but most of these can be boiled down to four basic steps. The first step is meeting with the owner to make sure the sale is on the right track. The second step is the open house. The third step is actually closing a sale. The fourth step is getting the home ready to be re-sold.
There is actually not really a “fourth step” to the sale of a house. But the process of the sale of a house is the same in all four steps.
The whole sale process boils down to four basic steps: meeting with the owner, open house, closed sale, and re-sale. These steps can be boiled down to the following four words: “I want to sell my house.
The word “sale” is very specific. It is the act of selling a house.
This is actually the first step of the process, and I always start with the words “open house”. You can’t just start with words like “sales” or “closing”. You need to be very specific. “Sale” is a very specific, very verbose, very specific noun. “Sale” is almost an adjective describing a noun. And I only use adjectives in the sale step.
The other word in this list is re-sale. I use re-sale when I am ready to sell my house and the house is already sold. I am not ready to sell my house.
It’s not a big deal to just re-sell your house. A lot of times it is a good idea to at least have a few conversations with the seller before you decide to call a re-sale. But I always use re-sale to describe the steps to selling the house.
I do think it is important to at least start conversations with the seller, and I don’t think that the re-sale step is enough. I would just use it in cases where I know the seller is likely to be willing to discuss the sale, and if the seller is not, then I would simply use the sale step. I have used the sale step and the re-sale step interchangeably with the word “sale,” but I don’t think that is an issue.
