When Selling Your Property?
Selling a home can be a very stressful experience, particularly if you’re not sure what to expect when selling. What about selecting the real estate agent who will be selling your home? It’s extremely important that you select the “right” real estate agent to sell your home.
So we hope the following information will guide you on the process to successfully selling your home with the right real estate agent and starting a new chapter in your life:
Deciding to sell
If you’re unsure on how to navigate the selling process, a trusted real estate sales person is a must when putting your home on the market. They can help guide you throughout the entire process, as well as offering advice and knowledge on how to achieve the best result possible. Once you select an agent that you feel comfortable with, you’ll sign a legally binding agreement that details the duration of the agreement, process, commission, marketing fees and any other associated costs.
Going on the market
Clean your home inside and out, as well as conduct any minor repairs. Once your home is in selling condition, your agent will arrange for photos and a written ad to be organised.
Once your home is on the market, your agent will conduct inspections and negotiate offers on your behalf. Once mutually acceptable terms and price is agreed, you and the buyer will finalise a contract confirming the same.
1 -2 weeks after the contract is signed
After the contract is signed by both parties, the buyer will arrange to complete a building and pest inspection. If subject to finance, the buyer’s financial institution will also require for the property to be valued.
When the contract is unconditional
Once the contract reaches the unconditional stage, it’s time to book your removalist! Make sure the home is ready to go for the new owners, by leaving behind a clean home with mown yards.
The week before settlement
In the week leading up to settlement, the buyers will arrange a time for a pre-settlement inspection with your agent.
Settlement day marks the final step of the selling process. Ensure you have vacated the property well before settlement. All keys, security codes and remotes should be provided to your real estate agency prior to settlement.
