You want an agent that is experienced, knows the market and is easy to work with. Take the time to interview a few agents to get a feel for their professional style and experience.
Most agents rely on referrals as their primary way to find clients. Ask around for someone that has had a good experience with his or her realtor.
Our experienced My Way agents are more than willing to provide you with references, sit down with you, and review a complete marketing plan for the sale of your home.
What will he or she experience when they walk into your home? Your number one goal is to create an atmosphere that will allow your buyer to imagine what it would be like to live in your house.
Again, you want the buyer to see their personal effects in your home, NOT YOURS! Your My Way agent will be able to offer suggestions, or refer you to a professional home stager.
Your My Way agent will have provided you with a current market analysis so your home is priced to attract quality offers.
Once you have signed your listing agreement with your agent, he or she will start advertising your property. New listings typically get a lot of activity the first few days. Be prepared for numerous showings. Discuss with your agent how much notice you need before a showing.
The easier your home is to show, the better the chance it will sell quickly!
Make sure your home is always “show” ready. Take out the garbage, wash the dishes and secure your pets. It is preferable that you are not home. This gives the buyer the opportunity to speak freely with his agent and allows him or her to have a thorough walk-through.
Some offers are stronger than others.
Be prepared for some additional negotiation on repairs depending on what is discovered during the inspection. Your My Mays agent can assist you with this.
Once all of the contingencies from your accepted offer have been satisfied, your real estate will set up a time for you to sign your final documents. Typically move out happens on the same day as closing unless you have pre-arranged a different day.
