Once you have accepted an offer to sell your home, we will inform you of all the procedures involved in order to proceed successfully to closing, as well as each parties responsibilities for completing those procedures. For instance, the property may need to be formally appraised, surveyed, inspected or repaired. Depending on the specifics reached during the negotiations, you may pay for all, some, or none of these items. I have closed homes with over 50 separate local builders, so I know of many tradesman that can do repairs less expensively than what you might expect to pay.
We will then coordinate with all the parties and keep you informed as to the results of the various procedures. If each procedure returns acceptable results as defined by the contract, then the sale may continue. If there are problems with the property the terms set forth in the contract will dictate your next step. Depending on the contract, you or the buyer may decide to walk away, open a new round of negotiations, or close. We will of course be there to advise you throughout this process and will help you coordinate any actions you must take to keep the sale moving forward.
I have closed over 300 transactions, so there are not too many issues I haven’t already learned to deal with. Odds are, I have already learned how to address the most complex issues that might arise! Regardless, we will be there with you every step of the way.
