Steps To Selling a Property
Selecting Your Realtor
It is important to select a Realtor who not only provides you the most professional services amd achieves the highest selling price, but also one with whom you feel comfortable interacting with on a regular basis.
Pricing Your Property
Your Realtor should give you all pertinent information regarding recent sales in the neighborhood, current competing listings, recently sold properties in your area, most current market trends, etc. Your broker will establishe a selling price that he or she feels comfortable achieving, and that you are comfortable selling for based on your specific time parameters.
REMEMBER: the market determines what your property will ultimately sell for (either higher or lower than the asking price).
Determine all the facts and figures surrounding your house or condominium, floor plans, staging, photographs, etc,. List your property on the MLS for all other brokerage companies to view, so that every professional broker is aware of the listing and working for you too!
The vast majority of condos are sold with the co-operation of 2 brokers.
Selective yet well targeted advertising is the key to success, letting many qualified buyers (leads) know about your listing.
Your Realtor will identify the numerous options and how appropriate they are for your type of property.
Optimize your home for a perfect viewing experience every time a buyer visit is schedule or an open house is held; ask your Realtor how.
Negotiating an Offer
The strong techniques and mannerism of your Realtor can affect the selling price. Your Realtor will reach a meeting of minds between you (the seller) and the buyer.
REMEMBER: A strong offer from a financially weak buyer is often worthless.
Your Realtor will stay in contact with all parties in the transaction including the lawyers and update you on the status should any changes occur.
You will sign various documents with your lawyer and transfer Ownership/Title to the new Buyer(s).
This is when your lawyer will provide you with the proceeds of the sale.
