Seller's Guide

Setting the Stage

From applying a fresh coat of paint to rearranging furniture, your agent ensures that the property is visually ready for showing. Your agent will schedule a professional photo shoot, commission an illustrative floor plan, and prepare a listing description.

Going Live

The listing is broadcast on and sent across our 100+ partner sites for the duration of the selling process.

Spreading the Word

Your Compass agent will develop and execute on an intelligent & effective paid marketing plan inclusive of beautiful collateral to strategically showcase your property. Eye-catching property signs will also be produced and placed outside your property if applicable.

Making Connections

Your agent continuously leverages professional contacts and the Compass Network Tool to find ideal buyer brokers. Open houses are hosted for both brokers and clients on an ongoing basis.

Test the Market

Your agent conducts an assessment of the market response within the first 30 days of your listing going live. Feedback from agents and buyers is aggregated, and the listing strategy revised if needed.

Measuring Success

Your agent provides onging updates and metrics.

Optimizing the Offer

Following an offer, your agent contacts all interested parties, reviews the offer terms, and raises all counter-offer options with you. An offer is negotiated and accepted, the transaction summary is circulated, and the contract is then reviewed, negotiated if needed, and signed by all parties.

Finalizing the Details

Your agent notes and observes all contingency periods throughout the in-contract stage. All financial and supplemental information is collated and submitted to the managing agent if applicable.

Completing the Close

The property appraisal and home inspection takes place. The closing date is set with the attorney. Your agent arranges the final walkthrough and closing, at which time the keys are handed over to the buyer.
