A Buyer is Ready to Present an Offer!
When an offer is presented, Jana Franz will advise and help you to obtain the best possible price and terms. Understanding the standard forms and the many transaction issues is key to negotiating the best terms for you. Making sure buyers are pre-qualified is of utmost importance in negotiating a successful sale. Jana Franz will promote your interests and assist in developing a clear and binding transaction.
Typically an offer is initiated by the buyer through his or her Sales Associate and includes the following information:
The amount the buyer is willing to pay
Mortgage amount, if any
Closing and occupancy dates
Contingencies, such as mortgage commitment, building inspections and pest inspections to include where appropriate (but not limited to): termite, pest, radon, water potability, well, lead, septic, oil tank.
Any personal property specifically included or excluded
If the offer is not acceptable to you, further negotiations may be necessary to reach terms agreeable to both you and the buyer. Because counter-offers are common (any change in the offer can be considered a counter-offer), it is important that you remain in close contact with your Sales Associate during the negotiation process so that proposed changes can be reviewed and responded to quickly.
You have an Acceptable Offer!
Down payments, home inspections, contingency dates, etc. vary from contract to contract.Jana Franz will keep you informed about any actions required on your part. Close attention to buyer and seller obligations and deadlines is critical at this stage!
Between Contract and Closing
Throughout the transaction, you and Jana Franz will closely monitor the progress of all contingencies to make certain that all deadlines are met. On the day of closing, the buyer will have a “final walkthrough” to verify that the home is vacant and is in “broom clean” condition.
What to expect at the Closing
The closing is a formal process where all parties sign all of the necessary paperwork needed to complete the transaction. Title to the property is transferred from you to the buyer. The buyer receives the house-keys and you receive payment for the house! From the amount credited to you, the title representative subtracts the funds to pay off the existing mortgage(s) and other transaction costs. Deeds, loan papers, and other documents are prepared, signed and ultimately filed with local county recorder's office.
*PLEASE NOTE: The home selling process may vary from state to state and within state regions. Ask Jana Franz about any details specific to your area when selling your home.
