Selling your home is a complex, multi-step process that calls for Nick Swinburne’s expertise. There are many things you’ll need to consider, and to help you through it, here’s a general overview on what to expect and prepare.
Get Your Finances in Order
Don’t worry if you’re still paying off your mortgage, there are several options depending on what type of mortgage you have. However, you’ll need to talk to your lender before you can proceed.
Listing Your Home
Pricing your home too low or too high is not an option. Setting a fair price will attract more potential buyers, and give your home more exposure. Nick will be able to explain to you the multitude of factors influencing pricing, including: competitive pricing, current market stats, and of course the estimated value of your home.
Marketing And Promotion
The next step will be to sign a Listing Agreement, which gives Nick permission to post your property on MLS (Multiple Listing Service). He will then begin marketing your home through a variety of mediums — digital and traditional — and inform other REALTORS® (representing buyers) that your property is on the market. Nick can also help you prepare your home for staging.
After the hard work of marketing and promoting your home pays off, you’ll hopefully have a few offers on the table. . Once you’ve accepted an offer, your buyer will want to conduct a home inspection and (potentially) negotiate the cost of any repairs. Finally, your lawyer and Nick will walk you through the paperwork and legal bits needed to close.
Congratulations! With the sale of your home complete, you can now begin looking for a new place.
