It’s All in the Details
Pricing, staging and marketing are the first steps in successfully selling your home, but closing the deal requires in-depth knowledge and experience. Once you’ve accepted an offer, a lot of details remain before you get to the closing table.
Strategic Negotiation Purchase offers on your home may be complicated and might contain special clauses. Price is not the only consideration. Your RE/MAX Sales Associate will help you understand and evaluate offers and work hard to get you the best terms possible. Understanding contingencies and closing loopholes will help you close the transaction.
Navigating Inspections, Appraisals and the Details
In many cases, the most critical elements of a home sale occur after the buyer and seller have reached an agreement. These components of the transaction may include home inspections, objections, resolution deadlines, mortgage lender appraisals, title searches, surveys and more. A RE/MAX Accord Sales Associate will help you understand the process and keep the transaction on track.
Close With Confidence Your RE/MAX Accord agent will help you navigate the critical steps once the final offer is made so that you can close with confidence.
Moving On If you’re relocating, your RE/MAX Accord agent can find an agent at the other end with the right qualifications to meet your interests and needs. When you relocate, you’re doing more than changing your address; you’re making a life transition, ideally with as little disruption as possible. That means finding a pediatrician, a vet for the dog and gymnastics classes or soccer teams for the kids. RE/MAX Accord agents have contacts throughout the community to help you make the connections you need.
