SELLING YOUR HOME
Your satisfaction and happiness is the most important task to us. We know and understand how hectic and emotional it can be to sell your home and it can be difficult if it’s not handled properly. To help you through the entire process, we have put together five simple steps:
DECIDING TO SELL
When you sell, you want to get as much value as you can for your home. So you might want to consider the timing of the sale because it definitely has an effect on the value. You don’t want to sell when it’s a “buyer’s market,” when too many homes are for sale and there are not enough buyers. Seasonality is something to consider as well because typically more homes are sold in the spring rather than the winter.
You can also increase the value by enhancing the appeal of your house. We will help you with the entire process and make sure top value is received.
There are thousands of real estate agents, so how do you chose one that’s right for you?
You have to pick carefully. They will be acting as your representative and you will need someone to look out for your best interests. You will need someone that you can trust and someone who understands what you want.
Our agents receive regular training and are professionals who know your area inside out. A great agent is someone who offers you quality services to help you accomplish your goal, that is something we guarantee for you.
LIST YOUR HOME
Now that we are working together, we will list your home. First we will value your home and set a price. A report on market data will be complied to properly value your home based on the prices in your area.
Once we have done that our agent will market your home through various media outlets and listing sites to create strong buyer interest. We will post on Multiple Listing Service (MLS), social media, blogs, and websites.
There will be open house appointments as well to showcase the potential of your home to various individuals.
RECEIVE AN OFFER
Not all offers are equal and that’s where we comes in. We will help you understand the terms and conditions regarding the price that the buyer wants to pay, financing conditions, or other things like inclusions and exclusions that the buyer wants to make. Not only is it about the price of the home, but you have to carefully look at the other details included in the sale. Appliances, chandeliers, or even minor renovations can also be part of the deal. Shorter or longer closing dates can also be specified by the buyer. If there is something in the offer that doesn’t satisfy you, counter offers or negotiations can also be presented to help get you what you want.
CLOSE THE SALE
There will be closing costs associated with the sale that need to be paid either by or on the closing date. It can include mortgage application fees, inspections, and legal fees. But once that’s taken care of, you can pass your old keys to the new owners. Congrats!
You’ve officially sold your house!
