Determining Fair Market Value
Before listing your home, we will prepare a comparative market analysis(CMA) in order to determine how much your property is worth. This will be done by providing neighboring comparables that have sold in the last year, as well as active comparables. Once we have completed the CMA, we will schedule a meeting to review the document with you and explain everything through and through.
Once we have gone through the CMA and you decide to work with us, we will send you a brokerage contract. This document will include the asking price for your property, our obligations as brokers, your obligations as the seller as well as the amount and terms of our commission.
Once we have received a signed copy of the brokerage contract, we will help you complete the seller’s declaration form. This is a mandatory form that minimizes the risk of legal action down the road. This document asks questions concerning; the year of construction and purchase, servitudes, water infiltrations, soil contamination, presence of pyrite and other important factors relating to the home.
Preparing Your Home
Part of the success in selling your home relies on the impression it will make on potential buyers when they visit it. Most potential buyers will get their first impression of your home through online photos. That is why it is crucial to ensure the photoshoot of your home goes well and everything is prepared prior.
Our team has created a checklist to help you prepare your home for a professional photoshoot. Some of the most important tips include de-cluttering your home and ensuring overall cleanliness. If you have any questions throughout this process, we will be more than happy to assist.
Receiving an offer and the negotiation process
When your home is marketed effectively, you can expect to receive a promise to purchase rather quickly. A promise to purchase contains several elements such as:
- The price at which the buyer is offering you for your property
- The items they would like included and excluded from the sale
- The date and time by which you must reply to the promise to purchase
- After which it becomes null and void.
- The date of occupancy
- The date of the deed of sale signing
- As well as other relevant terms
Don’t forget this is a negotiation. We don’t necessarily have to accept the first offer we receive. There are other options. We can accept, send a counter-proposal, or refuse it.
After coming to terms with a buyer, they have the time allocated on the promise to purchase to complete the conditions in the offer. This includes their financing approval, the inspection, the review of the requested documents, etc… After satisfying all conditions, we look forward to signing the deed of sale at the notary’s office.
Congratulations! You have sold your home! Let’s find you a new one!
