"going beyond the essentials to deliver incredible value
at a price point that works for you."
I understand how hectic it is to sell a house and it can be difficult if it’s not handled properly. To help you through the entire process I’ve put together five simple steps you can follow to make the right choices:
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 definitely has an effect on the value. You don’t want to sell when it’s a “buyer’s market,” when too many homes are for sale and there are not enough buyers. Seasonality is something to consider as well because typically more homes are sold in the spring rather than the winter.
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 remodelling 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 more warm 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 definitely impress them. It also gives you a chance to prevent unpleasant surprises and make any major repairs.
Now you’re ready for the FOR SALE sign!
There are thousands of Real Estate Agents, so how do you chose one that’s right for you? They will be acting as your representative and looking out for your best interests. You will need someone that you can trust and someone who understands what you want. They have to be a trained professional who knows your area inside out. A great agent is someone who offers you quality services to help assure you accomplish your goal.
Found the perfect real estate agent to list your home? Perfect! Next your house will be valued and a price set using a CMA report consisting of market data to properly value your home based on the prices in your area. Next the agent will market your home through various media outlets and listing sites to create strong buyer interest. There may also be open houses to showcase the potential of your home to various individuals.
Not all offers are equal and that’s where your real estate agent comes in. They 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. It is not only about the price of the house, but also about additional conditions you have to carefully look at in the sale. If there is something in the offer that doesn’t satisfy you, counter offers or negotiations can also be presented to help get you what you want.
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. But once that’s taken care of, your lawyer can pass your old keys to the new owners. Congrats! You’ve officially Sold your house!
