If you’re looking to sell your house and need some guidance, you’ve come to the right place. In this blog post, we will take you through the basic steps of selling your home and what to expect. After looking at this quick and easy guide, you’ll be able to confidently navigate the home selling process and get the best price for your house.
First things first. Just like the home buying process, don’t be too intimidated by the process. As a real estate investment firm, we are here to help you along the way! Never be afraid to ask questions or guidance when it comes to beginning this process.
Let’s get started!
Meet with a Real Estate Professional
There’s no commitment required on your part for the initial meeting. It will be educational and help you identify your next steps. You will establish if this is the right time to sell.
Establish a Price
Your agent will provide a market analysis, which will help you set an asking price.
Prepare Your Home
View your home through the eyes of the buyers and ask yourself what you’d expect. Your agent will offer some useful suggestions.
List Your Home for Sale
When everything is in place your agent will put your home on the open market. It’s critical you make it as easy as possible for potential buyers to view your home.
Offers and Negotiation
If everything goes well, a buyer (and most often the agent who represents them) will present your agent with an offer. Your agent will guide you as to what to look for in an offer in order to align with your goals.
At this point, you and the buyer have agreed to all the terms. In order to go under contract both parties (buyers & sellers) will need to execute the purchase and sale agreement and any counter offers.
While under contract the buyer will work with their mortgage provider to finalize the loan and perform other due diligence.
This is the transfer of funds and ownership.
