Anyone selling a Santa Clarita home, or elsewhere for that matter, gets excited with the anticipation of receiving an offer, how to approach it can be another story. When we call our Sellers with an offer and send it their way it is important for them to peruse the contract with a discriminating eye. They will need to look over every detail and try to keep the following in mind:
- Take the emotion out. It is understandable that you are attached to your home, you might think it is worth every penny you are asking for it, or you might disagree with inspection items. You decided to sell your home, take your attachment away from it and sell it from a real estate perspective.
- Prioritize. What is most important to you as the seller? Closing quickly? Price? Inclusions? Financing?
- What are the buyer’s priorities? If closing quickly is key then maybe you can get closer to your asking price by offering to move up the closing date.
Listening to your Santa Clarita Realtor can be extremely helpful and important during the selling process, from pricing your home to walking through a contract. Look over the details of the contract you receive, make notes, examine the contingencies and ask questions. Having experience and knowledge on your side make selling a home a much easier experience.
