Home Selling Process Explained in More Detail
Here is a look at some of the key milestones in the home buying process:
- You’re trying to sell your home
The first step on your home selling journey is preparing your home for sale. If you choose one of our Buy Sell Impact agents, you will have access to a professional agent who has years of experience in the real estate industry. Also, this stage of the process includes getting together all of the relevant paperwork needed to expedite closing the deal when you receive a suitable offer. Our agents are also equipped to provide you with necessary information about local attorneys who specialize in real estate, should you need them.
- Determining your asking price
When considering the listing price of your home, you should consider a range of different factors. For instance, the location of the property, the conditions you are selling it in, the amenities on offer as well as the current asking price of similar properties. One of our agents will be able to help you consider all of these factors in order to assist you to come up with a competitive and realistic strategy.
- Receiving an offer from a buyer
Once you receive an offer from a potential buyer, our agent will help you negotiate the best possible terms and price. The process that takes place following the offer depends on where you are located, so understanding the formalities and requirements of such a procedure is crucial. In order to make sure that no time is wasted, your agent will help you make sure that your potential buyer is prequalified, assisting you in developing a clear pathway to selling your house for the best possible price.
The offer normally consists of the following components:
- The price the buyer is willing to pay
- The amount of the mortgage
- The planned dates of closing and/or occupancy
- Potential planned inspections
- Any inclusions/exclusions
The House Selling Process Made Easy
Once you have received your official offer from the potential buyer, there are a few other steps that you should watch out for.
- Between closing and contract signing
It is important to make sure that all deadlines are met at this stage. Before the closing, you should expect the buyer to pay a visit to the property to make sure all of the repairs have been made and that it is being sold in a good condition.
- At the closing
Once you have completed all of the negotiations, it’s time to sign the contract to complete the sale. At this stage, the buyer will receive the house keys and you will receive payment for the house.
Although the house selling process seems straightforward, it will probably take longer than you expect.
