You’re ready to sell your home!
Your first step is to have me assist you in preparing your home for sale. By partnering with me, you will have a professionally trained, experienced agent to offer you representation.
Deciding on an asking price
There are many factors that affect the list price of a home: location, condition, amenities, supply and demand, as well as local and global market conditions. I will provide a thorough market analysis of your home so you will be able to come up with a realistic, competitive pricing strategy.
A buyer is ready to make an offer
When an offer is presented, I will help you negotiate the best possible price and terms. It is also essential to make sure the buyer is pre-approved. I will promote your interests and assist in developing a clear and binding transaction.
Typically, an offer is initiated by the buyer through their agent and includes the following information:
- The amount the buyer is willing to pay.
- Mortgage amount, if any.
- Closing date.
- Contingencies, such as mortgage commitment.
- Building and pest inspections to include where appropriate (but not limited to): home, termite, pest, radon, water potability, well, lead, septic, oil tank.
- Any personal property specifically included or excluded.
If the offer is not acceptable to you, further negotiations may be necessary to reach terms that are agreeable to you and the buyer. Because counter-offers are common (any change in the offer can be considered a counter-offer) it is important that you remain in close contact with me during the negotiation process so that proposed changes can be reviewed and responded to quickly.
