Steps To Selling A Home
Before embarking on the selling process, list your reasons to sell to ensure you are ready to move. Once your decision has been unequivocally made, prepare your home for sale. Presenting a desirable product to a Buyer is key to a smooth home sale. This could include: Completing any repair jobs that may need to be completed, developing curb appeal, and occasionally repainting the walls with a more neutral color palette. Proper home staging could include heavy-duty cleaning, depersonalizing your home (remove all personal pictures and name indications), removal of clutter, lightening (allowing more natural light into the rooms), and highlighting focal points with mini vignettes.
Next, select a REALTOR® to help you list your house with all the appropriate information. It is helpful to run a comparative analysis of similar homes in the market to gauge what price to list the home. Obtaining information as to what are Seller costs in a transaction. Additionally, it is recommended to visit your competition – walk through other similarly listed homes in your area to see what they are doing to make their home appealing.
As prospective buyers walk through your home, they will eventually make you an offer, and it is your chance to negotiate an excellent selling price. Finally, the buyer will follow through with the inspection period, during which they will generally hire a home inspector to provide a professional evaluation of the property.
It is the period when the Buyer goes through their financing process and the appraisal to determine the final property value is completed. Once the factors are complete, the loan is approved, and the title company and lender coordinate the closing process.
It is your time to move out of your almost-completely-sold property and into your next residence. Remember, by closing time, you and your possessions should be completely out of the property.
This is the final step in the home selling process. All documents are signed and the title company can then file all deeds and legal recordings needed to prove the transfer of title of the property to the new owner.
