Representation

The job of a ERA Fleisher Real Estate agent is to represent your best interests through every step of the sales process. Your ERA Fleisher Real Estate agent will listen to your needs. We are experts in marketing, negotiation, real estate transaction forms and finance options.

Price

Determining the right price to list your home is the most important aspect of selling your home. There are a lot of factors that go into determining a home’s market value, such as the sales price of nearby homes that have recently sold, the listing price of similar homes that are currently on the market, as well as the condition and location of your home. In order to determine a listing price, your ERA Fleisher Real Estate agent will provide a Comparable Market Analysis which walks you through what your home is worth – and why.

Making Improvements to Sell Your Home

First impressions are the key when selling your home, so before the For Sale sign goes up, put in the time to make sure it’s in ship shape condition. Fresh paint, clean closets and flowers – there’s a lot you can do to improve the first impression someone will have when a real estate agent shows your home.

Marketing Your Home

Creating a plan to market your home will help attract the interest of the right buyer. Today, the vast majority of home buyers use the internet in their home search, so your marketing plan will be focused on online advertising with FleisherRealEstate.com website, adding your home details to the Multiple Listing Service and participating in email notifications to potential buyers subscribed to Property Alerts in addition to erecting signage, designing and printing fliers and scheduling and staffing open houses.

Showing Your Home

Showings are an inconvenient, yet necessary part of the home selling process. When your home is on the market, it has the potential to be shown at any time, so it’s important to maintain housekeeping efforts by clearing dishes from the sink, making beds, putting away dirty laundry and vacuuming and dusting regularly. It’s also a good idea to not be at home when potential buyers are scheduled to tour your home.

Purchase and Sale Agreement

Once an offer on a property has been made by a buyer and you’ve accepted that offer, you and the buyer will enter into a legal contract known as a Purchase and Sales Agreement. This document outlines the specific terms and conditions of the transaction and is signed by both parties.

Inspection

Once you’ve signed the Purchase and Sales Agreement, a home inspector is hired to inspect your home to determine if the home is in need of any repairs. An inspector will check items such as the structure, basement, roof, heating system, air conditioning system, water heater, plumbing and electrical systems. Afterwards, you will have a chance to negotiate the costs of certain repairs or to ask for concessions within Purchase and Sales Agreement.

Negotiation

Negotiation is the key to getting the best deal for your home. Negotiations can involve everything from settling on a sales price to concessions regarding certain repairs that are needed as well as financing. ERA Fleisher Real Estate agents are expert negotiators whose job it is to represent your best interests during the give and take of a real estate transaction.

Escrow

Once the offer is accepted and a closing date agreed upon, escrow allows the buyer and the seller to have an outside party ensure all parts of the contact are complete. Your ERA Fleisher Real Estate agent can help coordinate the completion of all necessary forms to the escrow company and monitor the escrow process until the transaction is complete.

Closing

At closing, all the paperwork is signed by you and the buyer, where both parties pay any settlement fees and the documents are officially recorded. Prior to closing, you’ll receive a settlement statement outlining any fees which may apply to you.
