Selling a home can be stressful and time consuming without the right resources and information. There are plenty of practical matters that need your attention. With our online services, you can avoid the potential hazards.
The overwhelming majority of home sellers find it advantageous to team up with a Realtor. Rather than attempt to learn about selling a home, most homeowners feel that it is better to entrust the sale of their biggest investment to a professional. There are a number of complexities of modern real estate transactions that should be considered, not to mention the access to the Multiple Listing Service, advertising, marketing and screening which are available to assist the seller. Advice can be given on the condition of the market at the time you are considering selling. Your Realtor will also be able to give you a Competitive Market Analysis for your particular property, which will help you determine the value of your property.
Today’s buyer is well-informed and price sensitive. A property that is priced over the market can often deter buyers who are serious about finding a property. If the property is under-priced, it most likely will sell quickly--to the detriment of your net proceeds. Care and research should be taken when establishing the original listing price.
There are many factors that will affect the selling price. The following should help you determine the price you can expect to receive:
It is time now to look objectively and unemotionally at your home. Look at it no longer as your home, but as a product to be marketed. Be aware of what you can and cannot change about your home. This knowledge will allow you to concentrate on those items that will bring the highest rewards.
Once an offer is made, if you intend to accept the offer, or make a counter-offer, do it as soon as possible. Realize that at any time prior to accepting or countering, a buyer can withdraw their offer.
When you make changes to an offer, they require written approval of all parties for the contract to be enforceable. Know that even minor changes facilitate the opportunity for either the seller or buyer to change their mind.
The last part of the home selling process is closing. It is the time between signing the purchase contract (once an agreement on price and terms has been reached) and the day the deed is actually recorded transferring title. Once everything is signed, then escrow closes and your home is sold.
