Negotiating the Deal

Three steps to selling your home:

  1. Plan the sale: Contact me at 334-303-2409 to set up an appointment to start your selling process
  2. Create a Marketing Plan: Various marketing tactics are employed when selling a home. Much of a Century 21® agent’s work is quiet and unseen, though critical for gaining the exposure necessary to get your home in front of prospective buyers. The phone calls, work with contacts, open house arrangements, follow-ups with prospects, conversations with ad responders, web postings and other outreach efforts are all handled by your agent on your behalf. As part of your marketing plan, I will use local area comparisons, actual home features, location, amenities, age and condition of your home, selling timeframe and the current real estate climate to determine the best listing price for your property. Then, your house will be entered into the local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and placed on century21.com
  3. Negotiating the Deal: All offers should be formally presented with a contract for purchase and sale. Usually, buyers and sellers want the same thing—to transfer ownership of the home. But the contract negotiation often involves some back and forth between parties. Your CENTURY 21® Agent’s expertise and negotiation skills are indispensable at this stage. As a seller, you can agree to accept or counter the offer. Plus, the price, stipulations and closing date are all negotiable. Once mutually-accepted terms have been reached, I will collect a deposit from the buyer as a financial indication of their intent to buy. Actual ownership of the home is not transferred until the closing.
