When it comes to selling your home, you have to let an expert Real Estate Agent assist you through the multi-step process. Here are a couple of the general steps and what you should be expecting when selling your home.
Still Paying off your mortgage
When selling your home, you might be worried if you are still paying off your mortgage. The most considerable step is to talk to your mortgage broker and make a decision depending on the kind of mortgage you have, before proceeding.
Choose your Real Estate Agent
When choosing a Real Estate Agent you are choosing a partner, so make sure you feel completely comfortable with them and feel like they are trustworthy enough to be selling your home. Make sure you are shopping around for the right realtor and not for the one that suggests the highest listing price. A knowledgeable listing Agent can assist with listing your property at the right time in the market and ask the most in-depth questions.
The best strategies to find a reputable Real Estate Agent is to ask family and friends to refer one, search online for the most visible one, or even physically visit a real estate office that is in your neighborhood.
Time to list your home
It is important to list your home at a fair price that will attract potential buyers and give your home the right exposure. The professional you choose should be able to price your home according to the previous sales in your neighborhood that have similar features to your home.
Time to promote your home
Your Real Estate Agent should have the most advanced marketing tools to be able to promote your home. The first step is to sign a Listing Agreement to give your REALTOR® permission to list your property on MLS ( Multiple Listing Service), after that they will be able to advertise your property on different social media platforms and real estate websites and magazines. It is important for your Agent to also help you with preparing your home or staging it for a quicker sale.
Closing the deal
After the hard work of marketing and promoting your home pays off, you’ll hopefully have a few offers on the table. Once you’ve accepted an offer, your buyer will want to conduct a home inspection and (potentially) negotiate the cost of any repairs.
Finally, your lawyer and Real Estate Agent will walk you through the paperwork and legal bits needed to close.
Congratulations! With the sale of your home complete, you can now begin looking for a new place.
Finally, you have sold your home with the right marketing and promotions. When you have accepted the offer that most suits your needs, your buyer will ask an inspector of their choice to do an inspection of your property.
Finally, it is time for the lawyers to push through the paperwork and do all the legal paperwork needed.
Congratulations you have finally sold your home and it is time for you to look for a new property to call home!
