Resources for Sellers

How a REALTOR® Can Save You Time and Money When Selling Your Property:
 
Pricing
REALTORS® can perform a comparative market analysis and provide you current market information to sell your property quickly at the best price and with minimum hassle.

Marketing
A REALTOR® can recommend repairs to enhance the salability of your property and expose it to the widest possible audience via cooperative marketing networks, such as the Multiple Listing Service.

Risk Management
With their knowledge of fair housing laws and mandatory disclosure requirements, as well as an ethical duty to provide accurate statements in all advertising and representations to the public, REALTORS® can reduce your risk to liability during the transaction.
 
Inspection
REALTORS® can help you determine what inspections and investigations you might want to conduct, prior to listing your home for sale.

Financing
REALTORS® can help determine if you need a bridge loan, identify different financing options and refer you to a lender.  In addition, they have the ability to pre-qualify prospective buyers ensuring that your privacy and property aren’t unnecessarily compromised.

Negotiation
REALTORS® can advise you on the following factors: market conditions, home repairs, furnishings included in the sale or conditional sale issues that may arise.

Closing
Every area has its own unique closing or settlement customs. A local REALTOR® can help guide you through the process.
