How I Can Help You Sell a Home
Helping find a buyer for your home is only one facet of a real estate professional’s job. There are many more aspects including explaining the basic real estate practices and principles and all the related paperwork, Performing a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) to help determine your home’s value, helping to prepare your home for sale, listing your home, marketing your home, keeping you informed throughout the process. When the sale begins, it is important to work with someone who will assist you with the paperwork, negotiate on your behalf, make sure deadlines are met, and work with the escrow company.
By working with me, you will:
• Be more likely to realize the highest return on the sale of your home
• Reduce the number of days your home is on the market
• Become familiar with all the terms, processes and paperwork involved in selling your home
• Have confidence that your home will enjoy exposure to more buyers and agents with qualified buyers
• Receive regularly updated market information that will enable you to make informed decisions
• Have a skilled negotiator working on your behalf
• Have peace of mind knowing that all the details of your sale are being handled properly by a licensed and trained professional
Your satisfaction and happiness are especially important to me. I understand how hectic it is to sell a house and it can be difficult if it is not handled properly. To help you through the entire process, I have put together four simple steps:
Step 1: Decide 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 influences the value. You do not want to sell when it is a “buyer’s market,” when too many homes are for sale and there are not enough buyers.
You can also increase the value by enhancing the appeal of your house. There are various ways to do this and it all depends on the amount of monetary resources available. You can renovate your house by remodeling an area or just freshen up the walls with a new coat of paint.
Even just keeping your front lawn tidy can make a big difference. Buyers love seeing green grass and flowers outside because it feels warmer and inviting to them.
Home inspections are also something that you can do to prove the value of your home. Buyers will usually ask for a home inspection, so if you do it ahead of time it will impress them. It also gives you a chance to prevent unpleasant surprises and make any major repairs.
Now you are ready for the for-sale sign!
Step 2: List your Home
Now that you have found the perfect real estate agent, I will list your home. First, I will value your house and set a price. A report on market data will be complied to properly value your home based on the prices in your area. here are many more aspects including explaining the basic real estate practices and principles and all the related paperwork, Performing a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) to help determine your home’s value, helping to prepare your home for sale, listing your home, marketing your home, keeping you informed throughout the process. Some paperwork will be necessary to be completed by you (Listing agreement and A Seller’s Disclosure).
Once I done that, I will market your home through various media outlets and listing sites to create strong buyer interest. I can post on Multiple Listing Service (MLS), social media, and websites.
There will be open house both virtual and physical appointments as well to showcase the potential of your home to various individuals. At this point, I may also suggest staging the home to help these individuals imagine themselves living in your house.
Step 3: Receive an Offer
Not all offers are equal and that is where I come in. I will help you get to know 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. (A sample contract will be provided)
Not only is it about the price of the home, but you must 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 does not satisfy you, counter offers, or negotiations can also be presented to help get you what you want.
Step 4: 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. I will go over the Seller’s Estimated Closing costs. But once that is taken care of, you can pass your old keys to the new owners.
