Facilitating the Sale
We are here for you from start to finish, every step of the way.
NEGOTIATING AN OFFER.
This is the time when expertise and good communication skills really count. It is our job to make sure we clearly understand your priorities so that we can work in your best interests, help you through this process and reduce the stressors as much as possible.
AN OFFER IS ACCEPTED
Generally, your buyer has conditions on the contract of purchase and sale. The buyer has a pre-determined amount of time to arrange their financing, home inspection, house insurance, etc. We continue to be proactive for you during this stage, following up with the selling agent to ensure details are handled in a timely manner and assist with solving any potential issues. We also keep other agents who may inquire on behalf of another buyer fully informed as to the status (but not the details) of the accepted offer during the process.
YAY! A SOLD SIGN
Yes, you should celebrate. It is a special day. There is still paperwork to be done and we co-ordinate with your real estate lawyer or notary to get it complete. We will also help you prepare for moving day. Providing gentle reminders of all those little things that need to get done before the moving truck arrives.
The successful completion of your property; today title will transfer to the new owner(s). This is the final step, and your boxes are packed. We have already negotiated the dates and times that work best for you.
Understandably, you might feel overwhelmed, therefore, if time permits, we book a complimentary house cleaning for you! We love making our clients lives easier. A walk through with us to make sure nothing has been missed, a final goodbye to your former home and you hand us the keys to pass on to the new owner.
You won’t need to worry at this point, we liaison with the buyer’s agent to make sure everything is handled professionally. You hop in your car and away you go to your next phase of life, a new residence, or new adventures. Every seller’s story is different.
This may be a bittersweet moment, for you and us. We will miss you, but this does not mean goodbye. You are part of our most treasured group – our former clients. You can expect to hear from us from time to time. Don’t worry though, we won’t do spam. A semi-annual newsletter, a friendly note in the mail, or a phone call just to check in.
