Selling You House Using the SOAP Method…

You have probably heard the phrase “Its a dirty job but someone has to do it.”  Selling your house or condo is not really a dirty job.  The SOAP method does not involve cleaning your house although that is always highly recommended!
Years ago as a Navy Hospital Corpsman I remember using the "”SOAP” method to document patient treatment during sick call.

Very briefly, the “S” was for subjective issues; the “O” was for the objective findings; the “A” was for the assessment; and the “P” stood for the plan (as in treatment plan). [Simplified here]

Now, selling a house using the SOAP method involves similar steps:
  • S: What you as a seller tells your real estate agent about desired price, time line, why your house is worth the price, its condition,etc.
  • O: What your real estate agent tells you about the process, the market status,cost, etc.
  • A: The market analysis – what your house should “go for," a recommended listing price.
  • P: The marketing plan. How your property will be competitive and get the best price for the market in your time frame.
Just as the SOAP method will provide a logical clinical examination and result in a successful treatment plan so will it provide for a logical (and successful) real estate transaction.
