Studies show that home sellers who use a REALTOR® to represent them generally get a better price than those who sell the home themselves. REALTORS® are up-to-date on critical processes and can help keep you out of trouble. They can also help you get your home sold at the best price in the right time frame.
Equally as important, REALTORS® add objectivity to an inherently emotional transaction. Selling your home can be one of the biggest decisions you make in life, so having an experienced and knowledgeable Real Estate Showcase professional representing you makes good sense. Real Estate Showcase agents fully understand the real estate process – and just as important, they know all the in’s and out’s of your local real estate market.
This can be a very confusing time filled with many questions and potentially few answers if you go it alone. Fortunately, Real Estate Showcase can help.

Be clear about your intentions and motivations. Ask the question : “Why do I want to sell my home?” The psychology surrounding your decision to sell can affect the potential sale and the negotiating process of the final sale.
Begin by making a list of all the interior and exterior projects that you want to complete before placing your home on the market, for example:
There are several key factors in the determination of home values but the top considerations are:

An acceptable offer depends on certain things:
The negotiating process can at times seem very complicated. However, if you are using a Pezzini Luxury Homes agent, we can make this a streamlined and relatively hassle-free transaction.
During the negotiating process of the sale of a home, the seller can react in one of three different ways:
It is important to remember that the negotiating process may require some diplomacy. Be willing to entertain concessions in exchange for other considerations offered by the buyer.
The closing process is often a fluid and changing one, referred to as “settlement” or “escrow” in different territories. Most closings are completely automated now and both parties are no longer required to be present at the time of signing.
Closings usually take about 30- 45 days to complete. This mainly depends upon the buyer’s financing availability, the successful home inspection completion less and various lender conditions (ex. title search, title insurance, termite inspections, surveys and appraisals).
The closing process is the transfer of the title of the property from the buyer to the seller. The buyer will receive the keys to the home or the deed to the land, while the seller receives payment for the property. The amount the seller receives is based upon the amount that is still owed on the mortgage less any outstanding fees or taxes and any additional closing costs. All legal papers are filed with the local records office.
Buyers and sellers are not required to do much at this phase but it is important that the buyer take a final walk through the property to make sure conditions have not changed much, if at all. It is equally important for both the buyer and seller to make sure the paperwork they are signing reflects the agreements and terms of the original sale.
