Orlando Realtor- Seller Series part 1

This series is dedicated to Orlando homeowners that want to sell their property for top dollar in the least amount of time but aren’t sure how to get started.

 Over the next few weeks, we will be revealing a 6 step formula for selling an Orlando home quickly for the highest amount possible. This edition will serve as an overview of the steps that will be broken down in detail over the next month or so.

 You must first seek out an experienced Orlando Realtor with a reputation for getting the job. At our brokerage this person is known as a “Listing Specialist.

 A Listing Specialist is exactly what it sounds like…a realtor that specializes in listing properties and nothing else. It’s no secret that if someone dedicates and focuses themselves at doing just one thing, they will become experts in their niche or their “one thing”.

A Listing Specialist will sit with you and discuss your time table for selling as well as the profit needed at the closing of the sale. They will also lay out the best plan of action to market the house and get the results you desire.

 Another critical step to selling your house is to price it right. Your realtor should prepare a detailed CMA [comparable market analysis] and go through it with you. This in-depth report of your home together with current market trends will help to determine what the highest listing price for your home will be.

 It’s then time to get the home ready for showings. You only one chance to make a first impression which is why it’s good idea to clean, de-clutter and even do some light staging if possible. A Listing Specialist can offer the seller tips on how to make the home look the best that it can without breaking the bank.

 Next, your realtor will help you to negotiate the offers that come in. Terms like contract price, contingencies in the contract, inspection periods, and closing date are all negotiable and an experienced realtor can prove invaluable in these instances.

 Once an offer has been accepted and a contract has been signed, you can start making plans to move out. You can count on your Orlando listing agent to be at your side at the closing table along with the buyer and the buyer’s agent and the title company. Once everyone signs the paperwork it becomes official and your you will receive your proceeds from the sale.
