When you are selling your home, sometimes it seems everything is moving exceptionally quickly, and so fast it is hard to know what comes next.
We never want our clients to feel this overwhelmed. We strive to help our clients understand the process and feel prepared throughout their whole real estate journey from “for sale to sold.” Here is a quick list of must-knows to help you prepare, and this way, you can reference it at any time throughout the process.
- Your Real Estate Agent will need access to your home to offer showings to prospective buyers. The best practice is to remove personal items from your home for two reasons. The first reason is to keep your belongings safe. To help prospective buyers imagine themselves living in the house is the second reason. Also, get in the habit of straightening your home daily. This way, you are not having to rush before a showing but are always prepared for someone to do a tour.
- Most of our clients, their home is their most significant investment. Our homeowners treat it as having homeowners insurance and doing all they can to keep the value. And, so do we! We want to make sure that the homes we list are provided at the same level of protection. At RE/MAX Capitol Properties, we use SentriLock Bluetooth REALTOR Lockbox. They are state of the art and engineered to protect your home. It’s genuinely like a vault for your home. The App serves as a control center for the lockbox and can provide instant notifications when your home has been entered. It shows who entered and when, as well as when they left.
- You will encounter much paperwork throughout your real estate journey. Make sure to utilize your real estate professional to help ensure you understand everything you need. There is no such thing as a dumb question. As you review any paperwork, write down your questions, even if you think you know the answer. It will help to keep the information fresh and validate your understanding.
