Selling Your Home
Cultivate Interest and Generate Offers
Once you’ve taken care of the preparations, it’s time to get to work gaining the attention of your home’s next owner. Here is where the guidance of a seasoned professional really pays major dividends. The sale of a home is serious business, and most folk’s agree now isn’t the best time to learn by trial and error! It’s true that “Time is money,” but perhaps more importantly time is fleeting. Most sellers have demanding timelines that don’t leave room for mistakes, so eliminate them by working with The Selling St. Charles County Team.
Finalizing the terms of a Residential Sale Contract is a delicate procedure that requires all the usual skills of diplomacy; your agent needs to be tactful, tough (but not overly so), informed and knowledgeable if you are to achieve the best outcome. And the process of closing on a home doesn’t stop at the counter offers alone since you likely will be faced with inspection notices, and the repair work that will follow. This stage raises a new set of challenges and negotiation points.
It is also important to consider that market conditions have a tremendous impact on the particulars of any real estate transaction. A Buyer’s Market is quite a different climate than a Seller’s Market, and a Balanced Market has its own demands as well. It is crucial that your real estate agent has experienced these fluctuations in the marketplace, and that they have done so in the St. Charles County area specifically.
