Analyze why you are selling - If you understand your motives, you will be able to better negotiate and to get what it is that you want, whether it be a quick sale, high price, or somewhere in the middle.
Prepare your home for the buyer - Maximize the strengths of your property and fix up its weaknesses. You want the buyer to walk away from your home with a lasting good impression.
Find a good real estate agent that understands your needs - Make sure that your agent is loyal to you, and can negotiate to help you achieve your goals. In addition, they should be assertive and honest with both you and the buyer.
Be prepared for negotiation - Learn and understand your buyer’s situation; what are their motives? Can you demand a big deposit from them? Try to lock in the buyer so that the deal goes through.
Negotiate for the best price and the best terms - Learn how to counter offer to get maximum value from every offer.
Make sure the contract is accurate and complete - Be honest with your disclosures; you do not want to lose the deal because you were lying or diminishing your home’s defects. Insist the buyers get a professional inspection. This will protect both you and the buyer.
A family member recommended Brad to me, and he was a wonderful agent that helped me find my dream first home! As a first time home buyer, I had a lot of questions and didn't understand the whole process. Brad was great at answering all my questions and making sure I understood everything. He really helped take a lot of the stress out of something that can be very stressful. Besides his great knowledge of the area, he also knows plenty of handymen, bricklayers, and such in the area. Even after closing, he has helped me by recommending some great people to help me get settled into my new home. I highly recommend Brad!
"If you are looking to sell your home Brad is your guy! He sold our home in less than 3 months . In fact Brad did more in 3 months than our previous realtor did in 18 months. Brad is extremely professional and super knowledgeable. Selling your home can be stressful but Brad went above and beyond to make sure the whole process for us was stress free. You can’t go wrong with Brad as your realtor for selling your home or buying a new home . His level of expertise and commitment to his clients are second to none !"
