So you are thinking of selling a property. There are many reasons that could be leading you towards this decision. Do you want to purchase a larger property or perhaps need a change in scenery? Does a different neighbourhood appeal to you more than your current one?
Whatever your selling purpose is, I am here to guide you and find you the best deal for your home. To do this, I’ll need to assess your selling intentions and urgency. Before you proceed to the next steps, ask yourself the following questions:
Your home or property’s appeal can be increased to create a lasting impact on potential buyers. Here are a couple of factors to keep in mind when listing your property for sale:
Having an expert that works with you during the selling process will enable you to maximize your opportunities in the current Real Estate market.
I will provide you with access to extensive contact networks that have been strategically developed to ensure that your property does not become stagnant in the marketplace.
I also have marketing tools readily available to present your home to potential buyers in a trusted manner.
My priority is to sell your home as quick as you want it sold, but I also want to get you the right deal for your property. Here are some factors to consider during the offer stages:
The majority of buyers will have properties inspected by licensed property inspectors within the timeframe that was agreed upon in the effective contract of purchase. If the agreement is conditional upon financing, then a licensed appraiser will appraise the property to determine the value for the lending institution.
A title company or an attorney will be selected as the closing agent, whose job is to examine and insure clear title to Real Estate. Their duty is to certify that your title is free and clear of encumbrances by the date of closing and that all new encumbrances are duly included in the title.
A contingency is a condition that must be met before a contract becomes legally binding. Before completing his or her purchase of your property, a buyer goes over every aspect of the property, as provided for by purchase agreements and any applicable addendums. Depending on the outcome of these inspections, one of two things may happen:
My suggestion would be to accept buyers who have a lender’s approval, approval letter, or written loan commitment, which is a better guarantee of a loan approval than a pre-qualification or no documentation from a lending institute.
If you have come this far, this means that it is almost time for congratulation! However, it is important to remember that there are still loose ends.
A final walk-through is the first step to closing (this is more of a formality than anything else). The buyer will visit the property the day before or the day of closing. This is to verify that everything is in working order and in the same condition as when it was last viewed.
Once the walk-through is completed, you will have to cancel your home services and utilities after closing occurs. In the case that an unforeseen situation takes place, please know that I am here to assist and coach you.
