A written offer or proposal is the foundation of a real estate transaction. Oral promises are not legally enforceable when it comes to the sale of real estate. Therefore, you need to enter into a written contract, which starts with your written proposal. This proposal not only specifies price, but also all the terms and conditions of the purchase. For example, if the seller offered to help with $2,000 toward your closing costs, make sure that’s included in your written offer and in the final completed contract, or you won’t have grounds for collecting it later. REALTORS ® have standard purchase agreements and will help you put together a written, legally binding offer that reflects the price as well as terms and conditions that are right for you.  Your…

Your REALTOR ®’s marketing efforts and considerations will include advertising, showing the property, how long the house has been on the market and whether you’re buying another home. Your home should be listed, whenever possible, through a Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

ADVERTISING AND PROMOTION

Properties are commonly advertised through real estate agent Web sites, Internet home search/listing services, classified advertising and real estate guides.

Even with all these advertising avenues, ” For Sale” signs on front lawns are still remarkably effective. Many REALTORS ® promote their Web…

How do I prepare my house to put on the Real Estate market? A house that “sparkles” on the surface will sell faster than its shabby neighbour, even though both are structurally well maintained. From experience, REALTORS® also know that a “well-polished” house appeals to more buyers and will sell faster and for a higher price. Additionally, buyers feel more comfortable purchasing a well-cared for home because if what they can see is well maintained, they assume that what they can’t see has probably also been well maintained. In readying your house for sale, consider:
  • How much should you spend to prepare your house for sale?
  • Exterior and curb appeal
  • Interior appeal
Before putting your house on the market, take as much time as…

Setting the list price for your home involves evaluating various market conditions and financial factors. During this phase of the house selling process, your REALTOR ® will help you set your list price based on:
  • Pricing considerations
  • Comparable sales
  • Market conditions
  • Offering incentives
  • Estimated net proceeds
Pricing Considerations – Find a Balance Between Too High and Too Low When setting a list price for your home, you should be aware of a buyer’s frame of mind. Consider the following pricing factors: If you set the price too high, your house won’t be picked for viewing, even though it may be much nicer than other homes on the street. You may have told your REALTOR ® to “Bring me any offer. Frankly, I’d take less.” But compared to…

Why should I use a REALTOR to sell my home? A real estate agent can help you understand everything you need to know about the home selling process. Not all real estate licensees are the same.
