Once again the year has zipped by and we’re approaching Christmas and the New Year. Whether you are getting your family cookbook out for an age-old recipe or trying something new, the ingredients and how they are folded together is what makes the end product great. The same applies when selling a home. COListings has the perfect recipe for selling your home and their agents are ready to help you put it all together.
A proven home selling recipe
First and foremost, you need to start with quality ingredients. A real estate agent must have relevant market knowledge of your area. They need to conduct themselves with a code of ethics, commit themselves to you and have outstanding communication skills. They need to be trained in the latest real estate issues and be a strategic thinker and negotiator. These ingredients in a real estate agent will ensure that you are choosing someone with your best interests at the forefront. They will have the skill set to sell your home fast and for what it's really worth.
Once you have the ingredients together, it is all about how they are combined and the timeline for when things need to be done. Steps can’t be skipped or overlooked and can’t be out of order. A quality real estate professional will sit down with you and go over the steps to follow. First, they will cover how to prepare your home to sell. COListings sets themselves apart since they offer a home cleaner and stager to make sure this step is as easy and efficient as it can be. Next, they will move on to filtering through prospective buyers. Quality agents will ensure they are prequalified and serious before viewing your home. Then comes negotiating the buyer’s offer and acceptance, but only if it is the right offer for you and your circumstance. Your agent will then move on to the next steps; inspection and appraisal. A committed agent will be there to represent you during what can be very complex steps in the process. Approaching the final steps in the home selling recipe includes title commitment, ensuring buyer financing, and getting you to closing.
Selling your home is complicated, but by hiring a quality agent you can rest assured and know they are doing what needs to get done and in the right order. If something unforeseeable happens in the process, top notch agents know how to mend the situation so you don’t experience disappointment with the end result.
There are some things in life where you can go with the lesser quality item; however, getting the cheaper real estate agent can result in a less desirable outcome and a home that won't sell.
