Selling Your Home the Right Way

If you are thinking about selling your home, there is a lot to consider. Selling your home can be a complex process, which requires working with an agent committed to making the sale as painless and lucrative as possible. As your listing agent, it is my goal to sell your home at the highest price in the fastest possible time. 

Here are things to think about:

When should I sell?
  • Establish a time frame for selling. If you need to sell quickly, we can speed up the process by giving you a complete market analysis and action plan. If there is no pressing need to sell immediately, we can sit down and thoroughly review the current market conditions to find the most favorable time to sell.

What is the Market like?
  • Working with me, you can be sure that you will have the knowledge, expertise and negotiating skills at work for you to arrive at the best market prices and terms. I will keep you up-to-date on what is happening in the marketplace and the price, financing, terms and conditions of competing properties. You will know exactly how to price and when to sell your property.
How do I optimize my finances?
  • Deciding to sell your property demands a serious consideration of your current financial situation and future possibilities. With our help, you will be able to effectively assess the cumulative impact of these changes, estimate potential proceeds of selling your property, and plan effective tax savings and estate planning strategies. We will ensure that you not only take control of your finances, but use them to their fullest potential.
What to do to prepare:
  • Curb appeal. Keeping your landscape pristine and adding creative touches to your yeard such as colorful flowers will create an immediate impact.
  • Property repairs. Simple upgrades such as window repairs, polishing the doorknobs and a fresh coat of paint in the most frequently used rooms will brighten up the property.
  • Cleanliness and Staging. Keep your property uncluttered, sweet-smelling and well lit from top to bottom. Pay attention to details such as, put away the kitty litter, place a vase of fresh flowers near the entryway, have your carpets cleaned, put all your personal things away including family photos. I will look at the property before it is listed for sale to see how you can improve the staging. We can even recommend some staging companies that can do a partial or complete staging for you.
  • Disclosures and Inspections. We are very familiar with the legal procedures involved in disclosures and are ready to help you develop a thorough disclosure statement beneficial to both you and the buyer, as well as suggest home improvement measures before placing your property on the market (such as a termite and pest inspections).
  • Showtime. Presenting your property to potential buyers is a job that I will take care of for you. Buyers feel more comfortable discussing the property with an agent, if you are not there. Additionally, I will know what information will be most useful in representing your interests when speaking with prospective buyers.
The Price Is Not Always Right: “The higher the price, the better the offer.” Do not let yourself be fooled by this popular misconception

Negotiating The Right Way: We take the ethical responsibility of fairly negotiating contractual terms very seriously. It is our job to find a win-win agreement that is beneficial to all parties involved.

You may even have to deal with multiple offers before ratifying the one you judge to be the most suitable for you – and as your agents, we will guarantee a thorough and objective assessment of each offer to help you make the right choice.

The Initial Agreement and Deposit: An effective agreement is a legal arrangement between a potential purchaser and the property’s seller.

Laws vary from state to state, but in order to be a legally, binding agreement, the agreement may require consideration. This consideration (initial and additional deposit) is to be held in the closing agent’s escrow account pending the fulfillment of conditions or contingencies in the effective agreement.

Some important tips to keep in mind to streamline the process even further:

Keep written records of everything.

For the sake of clarity, it will be extremely useful to transcribe all verbal agreements including counter-offers and addendums, and convert them to written agreements to be signed by both parties. We will assist you in drafting all the paperwork for your sale and make sure that you have copies of everything.

Stick to the schedule.

Now that you have chosen your offer, you and the buyer will be given a timeline to mark every stage in the process of closing the real estate contract. Meeting the requirements on time ensures a smoother flow of negotiations and also ensures that each party involved is not in breach of their agreements. During the process we will keep you constantly updated so you will always be prepared for the next step.
