For many people, particularly those in the over-55 generation, the decision to sell a home can create an enormous sense of relief, an extremely emotional situation, or both. Many people have lived in the same home for many years. Their home contains the history of their family. Because they have not been in the real estate market for many years, they are unfamiliar with the changes that have occurred since they purchased their home. Because of this, we have documented the process that will unfold in the coming weeks. This information is designed to help those placing a house on the market to understand the process of selling a home. Knowing what to expect can relieve some of the stress one may experience as a result of the decision to sell. We believe that an educated decision is always the best decision.
The fact that you are reading this indicates that your first decision in the process of selling was a good one – you have consulted a licensed Realtor to assist you. Through the years, the business of buying and selling a home has become extremely complicated. The necessary forms, real estate laws, and potential pitfalls can make the process overwhelming, especially if you have not bought or sold a property for twenty, thirty, or even forty years. Having a Realtor work hand in hand with you and for you can make the process much less stressful and remove much of the burden from your shoulders. Realtors are professionals and must adhere to a strict code of ethics. They will work for you with your best interest in mind.
No two transactions are the same in the real estate business. Some transactions flow from beginning to end without a hitch. Others seem doomed to failure. There are many factors in the process that can potentially cause a seemingly smooth process to become unhinged. This is where the experience and skill of a Realtor become invaluable. Much of the information you are about to read will explain the process of selling a home on today’s market and the role that each stakeholder has. We want your experience to be a positive one. When you leave your home for the last time, we want all your memories to reflect the good experiences you had while living there. A bad experience selling your home can be extremely hurtful and costly. We want to avoid this at all cost.
