The decision to sell your home is a big one. Whether this will be your first time on the selling side of the real estate process or you’ve done it several times before, we would love to assist you with the sale of your home. Our trusted RE/MAX® agents can help you navigate the process and help answer any questions you may have.
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 Even small cosmetic changes can have a big impact in the eyes of a buyer, such as replacing outdated light fixtures or giving your home a fresh coat of paint. Your agent 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, your agent will be able to provide a more accurate estimate based on local trends, the condition of your home, similar homes in the area, and more. Equipped with the insight and knowledge on the real estate market, you can rest assured knowing your RE/MAX agent is committed to finding a fair value for your home.
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 are able to 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 and closing the sale of your home, your agent can help you understand the conditions, provisions, and obligations of your contact.
Close on Your Home
Once you’ve gone through the process you are ready to officially sell your home! You’ll sit down and sign paperwork with the help of your agent and transfer the ownership of your home to the buyer. Now it’s time to celebrate — you’ve just sold your home and are ready to move on to your next adventure.
