Preparing your home: Be prepared for showings at your home. Although our agents will present your home to qualified buyers, your house will need to be ready for showing on reasonable notice.
Listing at a fair and reasonable price: Our agents will prepare a comparative market analysis to help you determine the right price for your home. They will discuss with you what differences in pricing will mean in terms of how long it may take your home to sell.
Inspections: You will also need to be prepared for pre-inspections and inspections. Over the course of the selling process, there will be inspections of the well and water, structure and integrity, electric systems, septic systems, and radon gasses. It may be a good idea to have your home inspected prior to listing (a pre-inspection). Further, you should be prepared to make allowances in price for any items disclosed by inspections.
Typical seller closing costs: Once you’ve accepted an offer on your home, there are still a number of details that remain to be taken care of. There may be a home inspection, and an appraisal, as well as the need for a title warranty to show that there are no liens. The various fees that come with buying or selling a home are called the closing costs. Certain fees are automatically assigned to either the buyers or the sellers while other costs can be negotiated. Your agent will help you negotiate these costs with potential buyers.
