Preparing Your Home For Sale

Your house needs to look desirable for potential buyers not only from the inside of your home but on the outside. This process will include decluttering and cleaning. The Orrico’s will also advise what to adjust to make your home presentable. Before advertising your home for sale, you have the choice to hire an inspector to verify if there are major house repairs needed.

Present a Price For Your Home

It is understandable that all owners want the highest price possible for their homes. However, your home will sell quicker when asking for a realistic price.

Marketing and Advertising Your Home

Some examples of advertising your home will be through a Multiple Listing Service and other various marketing networks. The Orrico’s will also submit your house for sale at open houses for agents and through professional contacts. Advertising your house for sale will be determined by your homes needs and the audience it will attract.

Negotiating Offers

Your real estate agent will be responsible for interacting with potential buyers. They will also schedule tours of the house all while keeping you informed of the progress. The Orrico’s can distinguish serious buyers from those who are unqualified to present you with valid offers.

One of the best assets of hiring an agent is having them negotiate offers for you. Moreover, potentially getting more money than what you initially were asking. With the Orrico’s extensive negotiation skills, they are determined to work hard and get the most for each seller. The Orrico’s do their best to make selling your home painless and memorable.

Closing

The closing procedure, otherwise known as the settlement, includes signing legal documents regarding the agreements made in the sales contract. The settlement also goes over the terms of transferring ownership of the real property. You will be closing with a title closing agent along with a variety of other people involved with the transaction.

In most cases, the buyer and seller hire their attorney to represent their best interests and to read the settlement disclosure. There are fees associated with transferring the ownership of property and closing costs. Your attorney will help guide you through the settlement process and explain each of the closing documents. The title closing agent will be in charge of disbursing funds and finalizing the sale of the transaction.

When the buyer and the seller sign the real estate contract, the timeframe for closing could take 45-60 days. If the buyer is paying cash, closing could be 30 days or less. All parties involved will receive a copy of the final settlement statement which displays the final closing figures as proof of the sale. Life in the new home begins for the buyer once they have the keys.
