Selling Your Home
Attracting the highest possible value for your home requires proper preparation, effective marketing and an expert knowledge of local market conditions. We can help you navigate the process and ensure your experience is as positive as it is successful.
Choosing An Asking Price
There are many important factors to consider in determining a competitive list price for your home, such as location, condition, age, supply and demand, as well as local market conditions. It will also be valuable to conduct a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) of similar homes that have recently sold in your area. You may also choose to have a professional appraisal of your home conducted in advance. Understanding what the market will pay is a critical part of achieving a successful sale, and all of these factors will help guide your decision to establish a list price.
An offer, or multiple offers, will be made by a buyer, which you may accept, counter, or reject. If a counter is made, we will enter a period of negotiation until an agreement is reached by all parties, or you choose to reject the latest counter. Negotiations can involve many factors, including settling on a sale price, concessions and financing. Once all parties reach an agreement, contracts are signed, and we complete the attorney review period, you will officially be under contract!
Once an agreement is reached, the buyer may order a professional inspection and appraisal to evaluate the condition and value of the home. Depending on the results of these reports, we may enter another round of negotiations until an agreement is reached by all parties. Depending on the negotiation strategy, you may choose to complete repairs requested by the buyer in order to optimize other negotiation factors.
Closing day! The buyer’s lender will provide final confirmation that they are approved to close, and you will sign the paperwork required to complete the sale. Once the paperwork is signed by all parties, your title company will either wire or provide a title company check of the proceeds of the sale to your bank account, and your home will officially be sold!
