SELLERS: WHAT'S YOUR TIME WORTH?

There are just too many hours in the day, aren’t there?

If you need a time-intensive project to fill the moments not occupied by your work and family commitments, consider selling your house without a REALTOR®.

You’ll spend hours learning about real estate transactions and studying your local real estate market. Then you can create a sales and marketing strategy that incorporates an in-depth analysis of values in your neighborhood.

Be sure to block your calendar for a few weeks. You’ll be hosting open houses on the weekends, and on call during the week to show the house to potential buyers.

Next, you can learn about Texas real estate forms—where to find them, which ones you need, how to fill them out. And don’t worry about getting sued; that only happens if you don’t know what you’re doing. Do you know the answers to these common questions?

 

  • Whether you have to disclose that your roof leaked if you’ve fixed it?
  • How a termination option works?
  • How to determine the highest price for your home without overpricing it?
  • If there’s a time limit for responding to a buyer’s offer?
  • Whether you must respond to buyers’ offers in a particular order?
  • How to know if a prospective buyer can actually qualify for a loan to purchase your home?
  • Who gets to choose the title company?
  • How to handle the sale if the buyer is making it contingent on the sale of her existing home?
  • Whether the refrigerator, drapes, wall-mounted TV, and chandelier are considered part of the sale?
  • What to do if the buyer proposes an amendment to the contract you already agreed upon?
  • Whether you can back out of the contract if a better offer comes along?
  • When you have to get a new survey and who pays it?
  • What to do if the survey shows that your neighbor’s fence is on your property?
  • What happens if an inspection turns up termite damage?

 

Or you could leave the market analysis, advertising, showings, paperwork and questions to me and reclaim many hours of your time. Give me a call.
