The agent you choose (me) should put together a plan to market your home for the best possible price. The plan should include a Competitive Market Analysis (CMA) to see what your home could sell for, listing your home on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and other social media sites like Zillow, Facebook, Instagram, just to name a few. In addition to that, develop sales flyers, “stage” your home to help it look its best and have professional photos taken for advertising. Lastly, schedule showings so that other agents and brokers can see the home and schedule an “Open House.” Also, keep in mind, a good agent will make a case specific plan, personalized to you. Our initial meeting will determine if working together is the right fit.
Selling your home can be done in a variety of ways. As your trusted real estate professional, my objective is to come up with the best way in accordance with your goals. That means, I can sell your home on or off market. Before you list your home, we want to make sure your home is as marketable as possible. You may want to consider some repairs that could help add value to your property.
As the homeowner, you above everyone else should know what those repairs are, opting for a home inspection prior to listing will help us evaluate what we can tackle before going live. Even small cosmetic changes can have a big impact in the eyes of a buyer, such as replacing outdated light fixtures or giving your home a fresh coat of paint. As your agent my job is to help identify what may help increase the value of your home.
Choosing the right price for your home is one of the key components of the selling process. Although going online for an estimate can be a good place to start, as your agent I will be able to provide a more accurate estimate based on local trends, the condition of your home, similar homes in the area, and more.
Once your home is on the market and a buyer is interested, they will submit an official offer to your agent through their agent. If the offer is different from your asking price, you are able to reject or counter. But if you accept an offer, you’ll be officially “under contract” or “in escrow!” During the due-diligence period between signing the purchase agreement and closing the sale of your home, your agent can help you understand the conditions, provisions, and obligations of your contact.
As your listing agent, I will work for you. You can count on me to negotiate the best price and terms for any offers you receive. I will be mindful of all the information throughout the negotiation process that could help your cause. In addition, I will screen interested buyers to make sure they are good candidates for your house and are pre-approved for a mortgage. My goal is to make the process as seamless and stress-free as possible through clear and constant communication. You will never have to wonder where you stand because I will keep you informed every step of the way.
Once we get to the accepted offer stage, as your agent, I will help you navigate the steps ahead: option fees, escrow, appraisal, and inspections. With my help, you can find a contractor for repairs, and much more. As your agent, my goal is to make the process as smooth as possible and help you get to closing day.
Above all, your agent has a fiduciary responsibility to look out for your best interests. Develop an honest and open working relationship with one another.

There are several reasons why a homeowner might choose to sell their house for cash. Here are some common reasons:
1. Quick sale: Selling a house for cash allows for a faster transaction compared to traditional methods involving mortgages and financing. Homeowners who need to sell their house quickly, perhaps due to financial difficulties, impending foreclosure, or an urgent need to relocate, may opt for a cash sale to expedite the process.
2. Avoiding contingencies: Cash buyers typically don’t require appraisals or inspections, which are common contingencies in traditional real estate transactions. By selling for cash, homeowners can bypass these potential hurdles and uncertainties, streamlining the sale.
3. Financial stability: Some homeowners may prefer the certainty of a cash sale to secure immediate funds. This can be particularly appealing if they are facing a pressing financial situation, such as mounting debts, medical expenses, or other significant financial obligations.
4. Property condition: If a house requires extensive repairs or renovations, it may be challenging to find buyers who are willing to invest in such projects. In these cases, selling for cash might be an attractive option, as cash buyers are often investors or individuals who specialize in buying distressed properties. They can purchase the house as-is, relieving the homeowner of the burden of repairs.
5. Probate or inheritance: In cases where a homeowner inherits a property and wishes to sell it quickly, a cash sale can simplify the process. Selling for cash avoids the complexities and potential delays associated with probate procedures, allowing for a smoother transfer of ownership and faster access to the inherited assets.
6. Privacy: Some homeowners prefer to keep the details of their property sale confidential. By selling for cash, they can avoid listing their house publicly, which may be desirable for various reasons, including personal privacy, security concerns, or simply a desire to avoid the hassle of staging and showing the property to multiple potential buyers.
7. Market conditions: In uncertain or volatile real estate markets, homeowners might choose to sell for cash to eliminate the risks associated with extended listing periods or fluctuating property values. A cash sale provides a more predictable and stable outcome, regardless of market conditions.
It’s important to note that selling a house for cash may come with some trade-offs, such as potentially accepting a lower sale price compared to the market value. If you are considering selling for cash, I have a network of trusted investors as an alternative to a traditional sale. Contact me for more information.
