RECEIVING THE OFFER
You just have a qualified buyer presenting you an offer.
Your Real Estate Agent must review all written documents and making sure to contain topics such as legal description of the property, offering price, down payment, financing arrangements, inspection rights, repairs, deposits, list of fees, etc.
Ask all possible questions to your Agent before signing any documents.
Once you accept a contract without considering some questions, it may be too late to make any changes once you’ve signed.
Negotiating the offer
You and your Real Estate Agent must review the written offer and fully understand what the buyer is offering and what he asks in return.
This procedure is called “negotiation”.
Your Agent will help you to go through an easy and successful negotiation as well as protect your best interest.
The items that are commonly listed to negotiate are: the asking price, financing, closing costs, repairing, painting, occupancy time frame, etc.
You must know as much as possible about the buyer. Your Agent will know if you are going to get a good deal.
The vendor you need
Well, you have just accepted the offer to sell your home.
Your Real Estate Agent will make sure that all procedures pertaining to the home inspection go smoothly. The information resulting from every inspection will be notified to you.
If these results go accordingly to the written contract, the selling process will go on.
In case something is wrong, you or the buyer may decide to walk away. However, your Agent can help you in deciding what your next step would be without having to rush things up.
Your Real Estate Agent will be in touch with the closing entity to make sure that all necessary documents will be available for you on time to sign.
Your Agent will be contacting each party to make sure that everyone of them has everything properly done for closing.
You will also be prepared and assisted in advance by your Agent for the closing meeting itself.
Closing on the home
This is basically a formal meeting in which the ownership of the home is transferred to the buyer.
Your Real Estate Agent will be present during the closing to assist you during the process.
You need to be prepared in case any additional documentation regarding the property is required in order to close.
At the time of signing, your Agent will be with you to respond to all questions you may have.
You need to get everything clearly understood before signing.
Congratulations! You have sold your home! However, there are just a few things pending before getting everything done.
One more time your Real Estate Agent at BLUE ONE Realty will help you create a checklist of all things from the property that needs to be turned over to the new owners.
You also need to make completely sure that all local services such as gas, electricity, phone, cable, etc have been cancelled.
