Analyze why you are selling - If you understand your motives, you will be able to better negotiate and to get what it is that you want, whether it be a quick sale, high price, or somewhere in the middle.
Prepare your home for the buyer - Maximize the strengths of your property and fix up its weaknesses. You want the buyer to walk away from your home with a lasting good impression.
Find a good real estate agent that understands your needs - Make sure that your agent is loyal to you, and can negotiate to help you achieve your goals. In addition, they should be assertive and honest with both you and the buyer.
Be prepared for negotiation - Learn and understand your buyer’s situation; what are their motives? Can you demand a big deposit from them? Try to lock in the buyer so that the deal goes through.
Negotiate for the best price and the best terms - Learn how to counter offer to get maximum value from every offer.
Make sure the contract is accurate and complete - Be honest with your disclosures; you do not want to lose the deal because you were lying or diminishing your home’s defects. Insist the buyers get a professional inspection. This will protect both you and the buyer.
Perry and Nikki:
Just wanted to write and let you know that words cannot express the gratitude we have for you both. This Journey was three years in the making, however, you both never missed a beat. You all stuck with us thru the entire process.
The constant contact between us was so comforting. Knowing that you were there for us and working with us toward our final goal of getting to South Carolina. A long distance relationship is always hard, however, we never felt like we were 600 miles away with the attention to detail and constant contact and reassurance, that you gave us every step of the way. We looked forward to our updates of new homes on the market on a daily basis, we actually enjoyed getting emails!!
It was more than just a working relationship with you, we consider you all family.
I would recommend you to anyone that is looking for a home, wether they are here in South Carolina, or transplants, like us, moving from Pennsylvania. Such gratification in working with people you trust, knowing they have your best interest at heart. You helped us find our, FOREVER HOME!
Again, Thank you so much for a great experience in finding us a home and great friends!
