Basics of Selling

Create a Market Plan for Your Treasure Coast Real Estate

Create a marketing plan for your property that will help distinguish it in your local marketplace and attract buyers to your property. This may include advertising in the newspaper posting your listing on the Internet, holding an open house and more. AmPro Realty professionals often use the AmPro Realty marketing system to create a personalized selling program for clients. Its purpose is to sell a property at the best price possible in the shortest amount of time.

Setting the Price of Your Home

A key part of the marketing plan is setting the list price. If a home is priced too low, it may cost you money. If a home is priced too high, potential buyers may be scared away. To determine the best asking price review the cost of recently sold homes, evaluate the competition and study marketplace trends. AmPro Realty specialists are trained to use this information to help you reach the right asking price. It is also helpful to discuss other terms and conditions, such as timing and items that can be included with the sale of the home. Both of these can make your home more attractive to potential buyers.

Showing Your Home to Buyers

Now it’s time to get your home or property ready for the spotlight. Start with a good cleaning, then eliminate any clutter, add a fresh coat of paint and tidy up the yard. Talk to your real estate professional about other tips that can help boost a home’s curb appeal and impress potential buyers once they’re in the door. One way to make a home more attractive is to purchase a Protection Plan. This protects you, the seller, from paying repair or replacement costs of major items during the listing period. It also protects the buyer during their first year of home ownership.

In addition, make sure you are aware of all the federal, state, and local disclosure laws. This information can be obtained by the specific local and federal government agencies or from your local AmPro Realty Stuart Florida Real Estate Office.

Always Protect Yourself

In some cases, a property sale can also be an invitation for danger. Here are some things you can do to make the process safer. Ask for identification and pre-approval letters. Lock up and hide collectibles and valuables. Remember “For Sale” signs bring in buyers. Do not allow your children to open doors to strangers. If you have pets, make sure they are controlled. Remove any dangerous items. Talk to your AmPro Realty Professional about additional safety tips to help protect you and your family.

When a Deal Arises

When a buyer makes an offer, you can now negotiate this offer, by ways of counter-offering. This is performed through your Real Estate Professional guiding you through this process. Your agent will help you arrive at an acceptable price, terms and conditions. And once you and the buyer have accepted the terms of an offer, help keep the deal together by meeting deadlines and criteria, including home inspections, appropriate buyer visits, scheduled deposits and other steps. In fact, during this period it is common to see more re-negotiations such as an accepted offer price depending on the outcome of such criteria.

The Closing of your Treasure Coast Florida Real Estate

As the closing nears, you may also need to perform repairs or do additional work to the property as agreed upon in your contract. In addition, you will need to have the house “broom clean” prior to the closing so that the buyer can complete a final walk-through. When the day comes for the closing, you should come prepared to the meeting with the appropriate certificates and approvals as required by your town, county and state. Ask the appropriate agency or get a list of what you need from your local Stuart Florida AmPro Realty Office.

Once the closing has been finalized with all the documents signed and the money is transferred, it’s time to hand over the keys and concentrate on your next big project of moving into your new Treasure Coast home.
