Real Estate Sellers Tips

Selling: Sold

All offers for your property must be presented. Your real estate agent will counsel and advise you, but the final decision will be yours. Review every offer, comparing the financial qualifications and readiness to buy of each buyer.

When you decide what terms are acceptable, let your agent negotiate with the buyer. The agent will review all costs you are willing to pay and what you expect of the buyer. A suitable deposit will be collected from the buyer prior to any acceptance of their purchase offer. A written agreement stating all conditions of the sale will be signed by both parties.

Now comes the time to sit back and be patient. The buyer is busy arranging mortgage financing. The real estate company and the title company are beginning to accumulate data and prepare documents. The agent is checking on the progress of the sale. You can concentrate on the important matter of packing and moving to your new home.

Final closing day will be scheduled when all the steps are completed. Both parties must sign the final closing documents. Once you present the deed to the buyer and receive a check in the amount agreed upon, your house is successfully sold.
