Your 100% satisfaction is something that is very important to us at COMFLEX Realty. To help you through the entire process, I've put together five simple steps:
Step 1: Decide to Sell
When you sell, you want to get as much value as you can for your home. So you might want to consider the timing of the sale because it has an effect on the value. December is typically seen as a slower period for selling real estate. April/May the market tends to pick up.
You can also increase the value by enhancing the appeal of your house. There are various ways to do this and it all depends on the amount of monetary resources available. You can renovate your house by remodelling an area or just freshen up the walls with a new coat of paint.
Even just keeping your front lawn tidy can make a big difference. Buyers love seeing green grass and flowers outside because it feels more warm and inviting to them.
Now you’re ready to meet a COMFLEX Sales Representative!
Step 2: Hire an Agent
There are thousands of real estate agents, so how do you chose one that’s right for you?
You have to pick carefully. They will be acting as your representative and you will need someone to look out for your best interests. You will need someone that you can trust and someone who understands what you want.
They have to be a trained professional who knows your area inside out. A great agent is someone who offers you quality services to help you accomplish your goal. Once you've decided on a few agents the obvious question is what is your commission? A typical agent may charge 5% commission for selling your home over the weekend! At COMFLEX we charge a fraction of what other agents charge, and our services are hard to match! Paying a higher commission just doesn't add up anymore --- so why do it!
Step 3: List your Home
Now you're ready to hire COMFLEX Realty representative to list your home. First we will value your house and set a price. A (CMA) Comparative Market Analysis report will be put together to properly value your home, based on similar home sales in your area. At this point, we may suggest to stage your home, to help potential buyers imagine themselves living in there.
Once we have your home looking fantastic, a COMFLEX Realty photographer will contact you to take photos, and produce a virtual tour. A COMFLEX Coming Soon sign will be placed on your property to attract potential buyers who may be interested in the area. Once the photos are complete, we will market your home through local media. We will also post your home on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), social media, blogs, and websites.
My office will then call or text you to arrange showings throughout the week. An Open house will also be conducted on the weekend to gain additional exposure to buyers. (Please visit my blog on how to conduct an open house).
Step 4: Receive an Offer
Not all offers are equal, and that’s where COMFLEX comes in. We will help you get to know the terms and conditions regarding the price that the buyer wants to pay, financing conditions, or other things like inclusions and exclusions that the buyer wants to make.
Not only is it about the price of the home, but you have to carefully look at the other details included in the sale. Appliances, chandeliers, or even minor renovations can also be part of the deal. Shorter or longer closing dates can also be specified by the buyer.
If there is something in the offer that doesn’t satisfy you, counter offers or negotiations will also be presented to help get you what you want.
We have a proven track record of negotiating OVER ASKING on the majority of our listings. As a Certified Negotiating Expert - your largest investment is in good hands.
Step 5: Close the Sale
There will be closing costs associated with the sale that need to be paid either by or on the closing date. It can include mortgage application fees, inspections, and legal fees. But once that’s taken care of, you can pass your old keys to your lawyer. Congratulations! You’ve officially SOLD your house with COMFLEX Realty and saved $1000's - Guaranteed!
