Your satisfaction and happiness is something that is very important to Power Realty. We understand how important it is to sell your property and deliver the highest level of service. To help you through the entire process, we’ve put together five simple steps:
Step 1: Decide to Sell
When you sell, you want to get as much value as you can for your property. So you might want to consider the timing of the sale because it definitely has an effect on the value. You don’t want to sell when it’s a “buyer’s market,” when too many properties are for sale and there are not enough buyers.
You can also increase the value by enhancing the curb appeal of your property. A good first impression is important to a potential buyer/investor because it feels more warm and inviting to them.
Addressing any deffered maintenance is also something that you can do to realize higher value for your property. Buyers will usually undertake their own due diligence, so if you can demonstrate that your property has been well maintained it will support a higher selling price. It also gives you a chance to pre-empt unpleasant surprises and avoid the dreaded "haircut" prior to closing.
Now you’re ready for the selling and bid process!
Step 2: Hire a Power Broker
There are thousands of real estate agents, so how do you chose the expert that’s right for you?
You have to pick carefully. They will be acting as your representative and you will need someone to look out for your best interests. You will need someone that you can trust and someone who understands what you want.
They have to be a trained professional who knows your area inside out. A great agent is someone who offers you quality services to help you accomplish your goal.
Step 3: List your Property
Now that you’ve found the perfect real estate agent, they will list your property. First they will value your property and set a price. A report on market data will be complied to properly value your property based on the prices in your area.
Step 4: Receive an Offer
Not all offers are equal and that’s where your Power broker comes in. They will help you through all the terms and conditions to protect and promote your best interests.
Not only is it about the price of the property, but you have to carefully look at the other detailed terms and conditions included in the transaction. If there is something in the offer that doesn’t satisfy you, your Power broker will make every effort in negotiations to get you what you want.
Step 5: Close the Sale
There will be closing costs associated with the sale that need to be paid either by or on the closing date. It can include mortgage fees/penalties, commissions, and legal fees. But once that’s taken care of, you can pass your old keys to the new owners. Congrats!
