Home Selling Process :
Selling a home is almost as stressful as buying a home. First of all you need to decide whether you want to try to sell your home yourself or use the assistance of a professional real estate broker. Selling a home yourself, without employing an expensive real estate broker is not as difficult as most people think it to be. Here is a simple step-wise description of the entire home selling process.
Step – 1: Improve the looks of your home
Make your home look all the more appealing by maintaining it in a clean and sparkling state. Make it look more spacious and attractive. Allow as much sunlight in as possible to get rid of any unwanted odors and moulds. Keep counter tops, tables and rooms clutter free and make the home more aesthetically appealing by trimming the lawn grass and plants around the home.
Step – 2: Set a reasonable home selling price
Never make the mistake of over-pricing your home. It can make prospective buyers shy away as well as lead to mortgage rejections.
Step – 3: Price Negotiation
Negotiating is part of the home selling process. There are many factors to consider while negotiating the selling price of the home such as the current real estate market situation, and also whether the buyer is pre-approved or not. If the price offer made by the buyer is insufficient and much below your expectations, you can definitely make a counter offer.
Step – 4: Closing the deal
Closing is the final step of a real estate transaction when the title deed will be transferred from the seller to the buyer. It usually occurs 30 to 45 days after the sales contract has been signed.
