Analyze why you are selling - If you understand your motives, you will be able to better negotiate and to get what it is that you want, whether it be a quick sale, high price, or somewhere in the middle.
Prepare your home for the buyer - Maximize the strengths of your property and fix up its weaknesses. You want the buyer to walk away from your home with a lasting good impression.
Find a good real estate agent that understands your needs - Make sure that your agent is loyal to you, and can negotiate to help you achieve your goals. In addition, they should be assertive and honest with both you and the buyer.
Be prepared for negotiation - Learn and understand your buyer’s situation; what are their motives? Can you demand a big deposit from them? Try to lock in the buyer so that the deal goes through.
Negotiate for the best price and the best terms - Learn how to counter offer to get maximum value from every offer.
Make sure the contract is accurate and complete - Be honest with your disclosures; you do not want to lose the deal because you were lying or diminishing your home’s defects. Insist the buyers get a professional inspection. This will protect both you and the buyer.
Our experience building a home with Marc Newman as our new construction sales representative was 1st class. We had spoken to other builders in our search to build a new home and meeting Marc is what sold us. He is responsive in communications and keeps the client well informed throughout the process. We can’t say enough about how helpful and knowledgeable he is. I say is because post-closing, he is still very accessible to address any concerns we may have to resolve any preclosing issues, service and or warranty issues. My husband and I knew exactly what we were looking for from the start. Marc worked closely with us and acted as a liaison between us and the builder to make our vision a reality. Our home is absolutely beautiful and the experience building it was a good one thanks to Marc Newman.Cheri and Jay Johnson, Flat Rock
