What To Expect When Selling With Us
Define your needs. Write down all the reasons for selling your home. Ask yourself, "Why do I want to
sell and what do I expect to accomplish with the sale?" For example, a growing family may prompt
your need for a larger home, or a job opportunity in another city may necessitate a move. For your
goals, write down if you'd like to sell your house within a certain time frame or make a particular profit
margin. Work with your real estate agent to map out the best path to achieve your objectives and set a
realistic time frame for the sale.
Pricing Your Home
Name your price. Your next objective should be to determine the best possible selling price for your
house. Setting a fair asking price from the outset will generate the most activity from other real estate
agents and buyers. You will need to take into account the condition of your home, what comparable
homes in your neighborhood are selling for, and state of the overall market in your area. It's often
difficult to remain unbiased when putting a price on your home, so we will help you in this process by
presenting you with a comparable market analysis that provides you information on what comparable
homes are selling for in your neighborhood and the average time those homes are sitting on the market.
Getting Your Home Ready To Sell
Prepare your home. Most of us don't keep our homes in “showroom" condition. We tend to overlook
piles of boxes in the garage, broken porch lights, and doors or windows that stick. It's time to break out
of that owner's mindset and get your house in tip-top shape. The condition of your home will affect how
quickly it sells and the price the buyer is willing to offer. First impressions are the most important. We
provide a staging consultation, you will get tips on how to make your house ready for a top dollar
presentation. Staging can include a large variety of items. A home with too much "personality" is
harder to sell. Removing family photos, mementos and personalized decor will help buyers visualize the
home as theirs. Make minor repairs and replacements. Small defects, such as a leaky faucet, a torn
screen or a worn doormat, can ruin the buyer’s first impression. Clutter is a big no-no when showing
your home to potential buyers. Make sure you have removed all knick-knacks from your shelves and
cleared all your bathroom and kitchen counters to make every area seem as spacious as possible.
We will set up a marketing strategy specifically for your home. We will cover every base to get your
house the most exposure. In addition to listing your home on the MLS, we will be utilizing: the Internet,
yard signs, open houses, media advertising, agent to-agent referrals, direct mail marketing campaigns.
Negotiating The Offer
Once your house is ready and on the market you will start receiving offers. When you receive a written
offer from a potential buyer, we will first find out whether or not the individual is prequalified or pre
approved to buy your home. If so, then together with you we will review the proposed contract, taking
care to understand what is required of both parties to execute the transaction. Most offers to purchase
your home will require some negotiating to come to a win-win agreement. Our Team is well versed on
the intricacies of the contracts used in your area and will protect your best interest throughout the
bargaining. Once both parties have agreed on the terms of the sale, we will prepare a contract.
Prepare To Close
Once you accept an offer to sell your house, you will need to make a list of all the things you and your
buyer must do before closing. The property may need to be formally appraised, surveyed, inspected or
repaired. We will spearhead the effort and serve as your advocate when dealing with the buyer's agent
and service providers. Depending on the written contract, you may pay for all, some or none of these
items. If each procedure returns acceptable results as defined by the contract, then the sale may
continue. If there are problems with the home, the terms set forth in the contract will dictate your next
step. You or the buyer may decide to walk away, open a new round of negotiations or proceed to
Close the deal
"Closing" refers to the meeting where ownership of the property is legally transferred to the buyer. We
will be present during the closing to guide you through the process and make sure everything goes as
planned. By being present during the closing, we can mediate any last minute issues that may arise.
