What to expect?

Website Fotolia_73844422_XSWhat should I list my home for?
Many factors affect the list price of a home: location, condition, amenities, and local market conditions. I will assist you by providing a thorough market analysis of your home so that you’ll be able to arrive at a realistic, competitive price. My goal is to not simply sell your home. My goal is to get the best price possible—as soon as possible.

Marketing. Personal Attention.
During the market analysis presentation I will explain every aspect of the selling process to you. Once you list with Three River Realty, I will begin managing the sale of your home with implementation of my Full-Service Marketing.

I feel a good client relationship is the key to the successful sale of your home. Your home and your needs are unique; therefore my marketing plan is not pre-determined. I will listen to your goals, address your concerns, and use my knowledge and experience to create a custom plan to sell your home as quickly as possible.

A Buyer is Ready to Present an Offer!
When an offer is presented, I will advise and help you to obtain the best possible price and terms. Understanding the standard forms and the many transaction issues is key to negotiating the best terms for you. Making sure buyers are pre-qualified is of utmost importance in negotiating a successful sale. I will promote your interests and assist in developing a clear and binding transaction.

Typically an offer is initiated by the buyer through his or her sales associate and includes the following information:

  • The amount the buyer is willing to pay
  • Mortgage amount, if any
  • Closing and occupancy dates
  • Contingencies, such as mortgage commitment and inspections.
  • Any personal property specifically included or excluded
  • If the offer is not acceptable to you, further negotiations may be necessary to reach terms agreeable to both you and the buyer. Because counter-offers are common (any change in the offer can be considered a counter-offer), it is important that we remain in close contact during the negotiation process so that proposed changes can be reviewed and responded to quickly.

You have an Acceptable Offer!
Downpayments, home inspections, contingency dates, etc. vary from contract to contract. I will keep you informed about any actions required on your part. Close attention to buyer and seller obligations and deadlines is critical at this stage!

Between Contract and Closing
Throughout the transaction, you and I will closely monitor the progress of all contingencies to make certain that all deadlines are met. On the day of closing, the buyer may have a “final walkthrough” to verify that the home is vacant and is in “broom clean” condition.

What to expect at the Closing
The closing is a formal process where all parties sign all of the necessary paperwork needed to complete the transaction. Title to the property is transferred from you to the buyer. The buyer receives the house-keys and you receive payment for the house! The amount credited to you, as outlined on the HUD Settlement Statement. Deeds, loan papers and other documents are prepared, signed and ultimately filed with local county recorder’s office.
