Analyze why you are selling - If you understand your motives, you will be able to better negotiate and to get what it is that you want, whether it be a quick sale, high price, or somewhere in the middle.
Prepare your home for the buyer - Maximize the strengths of your property and fix up its weaknesses. You want the buyer to walk away from your home with a lasting good impression.
Find a good real estate agent that understands your needs - Make sure that your agent is loyal to you, and can negotiate to help you achieve your goals. In addition, they should be assertive and honest with both you and the buyer.
Be prepared for negotiation - Learn and understand your buyer’s situation; what are their motives? Can you demand a big deposit from them? Try to lock in the buyer so that the deal goes through.
Negotiate for the best price and the best terms - Learn how to counter offer to get maximum value from every offer.
Make sure the contract is accurate and complete - Be honest with your disclosures; you do not want to lose the deal because you were lying or diminishing your home’s defects. Insist the buyers get a professional inspection. This will protect both you and the buyer.
My husband and I just closed on our home today. We are so very excited!!! Dana Welch, our realtor, is an amazing person! She was by our side every step of the way from looking at houses to the closing. She was always by our side helping and supporting us. She knows the real estate process very well. She knew exactly what we were looking for. She is very professional yet friendly. To us shes not just a realtor but now a friend! Dana is the best! Sue, at Pro Real Estate, is the best too! She was always friendly when I went into the office to have documents scanned and sent to the lender. There was one time I called Pro Real Estate at 4:55pm (5pm is when the office closes) and she stayed later to scan and send documents. She too is very professional but very friendly. Very welcoming! They arent trying to sell you a house for the $$$. They are trying their best to find their clients homes that they will love for years to come. Dana Welch found us our perfect forever home. I highly recommend Dana for your home buying experience! You will not be disappointed!
