THE SELLING PROCESS
Selling Your Home: What you Should Know and Expect from Me.
As you prepare to sell your home, I appreciate the opportunity to assist you in the process. My exclusive Full Service Marketing System represents my reliability, professionalism, and commitment to comprehensive service that exceeds expectations – a commitment backed by my Seller Services Guarantee.
My goal is not simply to sell your house, but to help you realize the best possible price. Once you list with me, I will begin managing the sale of your home, implementing my Full Service Home Marketing System.
The relationship between you and I is important to the successful sale of your home. I will listen to your goals, address your concerns, and use my knowledge and experience to create a marketing strategy that works best for YOU.
I will explain every aspect of the home selling process to you. Following are some of the key milestones:
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 portability, 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.
You have an acceptable offer
The contract writing procedure, down payments required, building inspection contingency dates and other aspects are all very important so you will want to rely on my expertise. I can inform you of the immediate action steps. Timelines are critical at this stage!
Between contract and closing
Throughout the transaction, I will closely monitor the progress of all contingencies to make certain all deadlines are met. A few days before closing (usually 3), the buyer will have a final walkthrough to make certain that the house is in the same condition he/she purchased it in, with all repairs made that were negotiated.
What to expect at the closing
Closing is a formal process where all parties sign the necessary paperwork needed to complete the sale. Title to the property is transferred from you to the buyer. The buyer receives the house keys and you receive payment for the house! From the amount credited to you, the title representative subtracts the funds to pay off the existing mortgage and other transaction costs. Deeds, loan papers and other documents are prepared, signed and ultimately filed with the Clark County recorder’s office.
After the closing
My exclusive Concierge program is designed to assist you with the services you need before, during, and after your move. Please let me know if you will be needing any assistance in relocation.
