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.
Lora is hands down the best realtor I have ever worked with! We had a crazy experience with a different realtor when we were trying to buy our house, so knew we needed to go with someone significantly more professional and honest when selling. She was 100% realistic with what needed to be done to our house to sell and very encouraging through that process! When it came time to put it up on the market she prepared us for all scenarios so we would be ready for it all and was so informative and helpful when we had questions. She made the sell of our house and easy, stress free!! Our house sold in less than 48 hours and we are so thankful! Kaitlyn De Clercq Zubli
