2. STAGERS, ORGANIZERS, HOME IMPROVEMENT EXPERTS
Makeover Experts! Your makeover experts consult with you to ensure your home is shown in the best light to secure the fastest time on market with the highest selling price possible. Today’s buyers are accustomed to seeing homes that are staged which guide them through how each room can be used. It’s a big investment for buyers and the more you as a seller can help address and answer questions before they even come up the better your home will show and the more likely you are to convert a visitor into a buyer. I will provide contact information for various makeover experts and manage the process for you.
The Informants! I encourage sellers to have pre-sale inspections, the two most common are a general home or structural pest. The more information you can provide buyers the better prepared they are to place a clean offer on your home. A clean offer is one that has zero or a minimal number of contract contingencies. Presale inspection(s) are trusted 3rd party opinions that buyers reference to better understand the home allowing them to go into an offer with their eyes wide open. As with staging, the more you as a seller can proactively answer questions the more confident buyers are in selecting your home to place an offer. I will provide contact information for inspectors, on average the approximate cost is $600 per inspection depending on size of home, type of home, number of units etc.
4. ESCROW OFFICERS
Yes Officer! Your officer is here to make sure all contract obligations needed to get to a ‘close’ are met and fulfilled by both sides the transaction, buyers and sellers. They are a neutral 3rd party that holds critical roles including but not limited to, management of the escrow account which holds the funds for the transaction, they secure title insurance, and they ensure the seller’s loans are paid off at close and that the buyer deposits all the funds including those from the bank and their own. To break it down, they make sure everything gets lined up to have a successful transfer of ownership.
5. ESCROW COORDINATORS
Detail Masters! I have an awesome team of escrow coordinators that will manage all the mounds of paper work. After I explain and review all the docs with you, they will make sure all is in order and signed off so that your transaction file is legit and complete so that you can transfer ownership to the buyer and get your funds!
