I will provide you with helpful information on homes and neighborhoods that aren't easily accessible to the public, so we can list your home appropriately so that it sells quickly. I'll guide you through the process from start to finish.
Although you may love your property the way it is, new buyers will be looking for a fresh face. Spend time preparing your home for sale by conducting a deep cleaning, and refresh its appearance by providing a fresh coat of paint.
Being able to sell your home quickly is a matter of competitive pricing. There is a fine line between pricing low enough to sell, versus pricing just above market value. I will help you evaluate your home and create the right and accurate listing price.
As your listing agent, I will present to you a concise and robust marketing strategy, including but not limited to listing on the MLS, hosting open houses, scheduling professional photography, and sending out targeted campaigns. I will make sure your property gets seen by a multitude of other agents and their buyers.
When offers come in for your property, we can respond by accepting, countering, or rejecting. There is often room for negotiation between you and potential buyers. You may find yourself in a multiple offer situation. Work with me to negotiate on your behalf to make and accept the best possible counter-offer.
Once purchase agreement is reached, you will enter into the inspection period, which lasts 10-14 days. There are no costs to the seller for inspection, and I will typically have the results within 5 days. Inspections and possible repairs are the main reason why a sale does not close. At the conclusion of the inspection, you can reply to the buyer's response by walking away, repairing all or some of the requests, or giving the buyer a credit to repair the items on his/her own.
The buyer’s prospective lender will typically require a property appraisal, to make sure that the negotiated purchase price was fair and parallelled to the actual property value. Be sure to keep your property clean and organized prior to the appraisal appointment.
Move out your personal belongings completely. Check all drawers, cabinets, and closets.Cancel utilities and close those accounts. Keep a list of phone numbers for each of your utility and entertainment companies. Leave remotes, gate keys, pool keys, and mailbox keys in a drawer in the kitchen. Bring any house keys with you to the closing.
Once we get within 5 days of closing, the buyer’s will schedule the final walk through to get one last look at the home. Any and all repairs should be completed prior to this walkthrough and the home should be cleared of all personal items and cleaned. On closing day, I'll be sitting beside you as you complete the final step in selling your home. You will be given a lot of documents to sign to facilitate the sale. Your closing fees will be deducted from your proceeds and any extra will be issued to you in the form of a check at the closing. Make sure you bring your government issued ID with you and smile for the photos.
