Selling Your Home
You're ready to sell your property. And, while you're looking forward to seeing the word "SOLD" posted from the curb, you know there's a lot to consider along the way. One of your first decisions is to select a real estate company and real estate agent who'll join you in the process.
Once you’ve chosen your Keller Williams agent, and together have prepped your house for sale and set a price, you’re ready for the public to see your home.
Congratulations! You received a message from your KW agent that you have an offer on your home. Now you need to evaluate that offer and decide how to respond.
Prepare for Inspection
Most buyers request a home inspection as a condition of their offer. While a home inspector will dig more deeply into your home than a buyer, the preparation you made before your first showing should help you get ready for the inspection. Your Keller Williams agent can give you personalized advice, too.
Prepare for Appraisal
As you near the end of your home sale journey, you will need to pass one more test: an appraisal. Your KW agent can help you gather materials and prepare for the appraiser’s visit.
While it’s tempting to focus on your next move, your Keller Williams agent is likely to remind you that until the closing is over, you have some final responsibilities as a seller.
Home Buying Tips from Keller Williams
In our experience, a house is not a dream home because of its size or color. Its about how you feel when you walk through the front door - the way you can instantly see your life unfolding there. This about more than real estate. It's about your life and your dreams.
We'll arrange to visit the homes you've selected, together and in-person, to determine the best fit for you.
Making an Offer
Once you’ve narrowed down your list and have a clear favorite, collaborate with us to make an offer on a home.
The crucial period between an offer and a final contract is an important time to stay in close contact with your Keller Williams agent so you’re equipped with all the information you need to make smart decisions.
Schedule Home Inspection
As soon your offer is accepted, you should schedule your home inspection. If you’re buying in a busy season, it may take time to find an available inspector, so rely on your Keller Williams agent to recommend trusted home inspectors.
Get a Home Warranty
Some home sellers pay for a home warranty that covers them while their home is on the market and conveys to the buyers after the sale. You can ask your real estate agent for advice about negotiating for the sellers to pay for a warranty or buying one yourself.
While you may feel jittery before your closing, your KW agent and lender should have you fully prepared for the day. As the buyer, you choose the title company for your title search and the closing. Your agent and lender can recommend reliable title companies.
