Prepare Your Home for Sale
Before you list your home, you’ll want to make sure your home is as marketable as possible. You may want to consider some repairs that could help add value to your property, such as fixing any water damage or foundation concerns. Even small cosmetic changes can have a big impact in the eyes of a buyer, such as replacing outdated light fixtures or giving your home a fresh coat of paint. I can work with you to help identify updates that may help increase the value of your home.
Determine Your Home’s Value
Choosing the right price for your home is one of the most important components of the selling process. While online estimates can be a good place to start those are based on algorithms. As your agent I will provide a more accurate estimate based on recent sales, the condition of your home, similar competing homes in the area, and other factors you can only get with a real analysis. Let's get you as much money as possible. Call for consultation Tia Stanley 757-243-3245.
Accept the Offer
Once your home is on the market and a buyer is interested, he or she will submit an offer to your agent through their own agent. While the offer may differ from your asking price, you can reject or counter it if you’d like. Once you accept an offer, you’ll be officially under contract! During the due-diligence period between signing the purchase agreement & closing the sale of your home, I will help you understand the conditions, provisions, and facilitate the obligations of your contract.
Close on Your Home
Once all terms of the contract have been met it will be time to close, or go to settlement. In our area sellers typically close a few days before buyer at your preferred title company or closing attorney's office. Closings can occur by mail if you are not in town. Once buyer closes and transfers money, the ownership of your home transfer to the buyer and documents are recorded, funds disbursed. Congratulations. You’ve just sold your home and are ready to move on to your next adventure!
