As your Windermere agent:
» I know the market and will help you set the right price.
» I interact with other agents on a daily basis. We trade information about new properties and match eager buyers with the right homes.
» I will utilize the tools and several advertising opportunities in order to attract the maximum number of buyers to your home.
Here are a couple of things we need to do to ensure a smooth launch:
• Title report: Obtain and review the property’s title report, clear any issues prior to going on the market.
• Relevant property information: order and researched documents such as oil tank records, sewer capacity charges, building permits, and other information.
• Pre-listing inspection and sewer scope: As the seller, you can also elect to hire an inspector to evaluate your home prior to putting it on the market. Many times an inspector can point out major or minor issues with your home that you may be unaware of and that may affect its value.
• (If Condo) Ordering Resale Certificate order in advance. Preparing detailed information about the building, restrictions, and list of amenities to provide to potential buyers upfront.
Once your home is ready to show, I will begin marketing it to potential buyers and other sales associates. If possible, leave the home when buyers are present so they feel comfortable asking their agent candid questions.
Any agents that express their buyers have interests are added to a spreadsheet with specific notes. I'm also notified every time an agent shows the property. I will send a personal email to the agent requesting feedback and pass along the information to you.
Before offers are due an appropriate email to all interested buyer’s agents is sent, depending on the level of demand.
Hours before meeting with you to review offers we enter all the offers into a spreadsheet and start researching and pre-negotiation process.
Once you’ve found a buyer for your home, I will work with you through the purchase and sale agreement. This is the contract in which you and the buyer outline the details of your property transfer.
Once you accepted an offer, the road to closing is complicated with many possible bumps along the way. I work hard to manage the process with all parties involved behind the scenes until closing. The result is a closing that goes as smoothly as possible with the least amount of stress.
“Closing” is when you and the buyer sign all the paperwork and pay your share of the settlement fees, and the documents are recorded.
But it doesn’t end there... I would be glad to help you move on to the next chapter of life and keep in touch to find out how things are going, and I’m always happy to answer any questions.
