Selling your home involves large sums of money, stringent legal requirements and the potential for costly mistakes. I will spend the time it takes to help you sell your home in the least amount of time and for the best possible price. Before anything else, it starts with a FREE no-obligation appraisal of your home and to meet you in person.
Once you decide to take the plunge, I’ll begin with a listing agreement. It provides a framework for subsequent forms and negotiations. The Listing Agreement will outline:
How much should you ask for? Although you may have an idea of how much your house is worth, it’s important to have your home valued on its own merits by a professional. Be careful not to price your property too high or too low.
I have the information and expertise to assess at what prices similar properties in your area have sold, and may be able to help you in this regard. I can also provide information on market history, such as the number of properties sold in your community the previous month or year.
The average price of homes sold in June 2015 was a record $312,515, up 23 per cent from June 2014. The year-to-date average sale price was up 10.2 per cent from 2014.
I’ll start marketing your property by placing it on my real estate board’s MLS® System. Through the board’s MLS® System, all other REALTORS® that are members of that board can find and view information about your property, and all have the opportunity to sell your property. Your property gains more exposure, because it reaches the majority of the real estate professionals in your community. I’ll also look at some of these marketing initiatives:
As an act of good faith, the buyer will make a deposit with the offer. You don’t have to accept the offer as is. You may wish to make a counter offer that meets the original offer partway. The counter offer is one more step along the way to negotiating the final terms and conditions of the sale.
The offer, once signed by everyone, is a binding contract. Make sure you understand and agree to all of the terms in the document.
There are many reasons why people choose to sell their homes, but every seller has one thing in common: to sell their home for the highest amount possible, in the shortest amount of time. Let’s start today.
