Analyze why you are selling - If you understand your motives, you will be able to better negotiate and to get what it is that you want, whether it be a quick sale, high price, or somewhere in the middle.
Prepare your home for the buyer - Maximize the strengths of your property and fix up its weaknesses. You want the buyer to walk away from your home with a lasting good impression.
Find a good real estate agent that understands your needs - Make sure that your agent is loyal to you, and can negotiate to help you achieve your goals. In addition, they should be assertive and honest with both you and the buyer.
Be prepared for negotiation - Learn and understand your buyer’s situation; what are their motives? Can you demand a big deposit from them? Try to lock in the buyer so that the deal goes through.
Negotiate for the best price and the best terms - Learn how to counter offer to get maximum value from every offer.
Make sure the contract is accurate and complete - Be honest with your disclosures; you do not want to lose the deal because you were lying or diminishing your home’s defects. Insist the buyers get a professional inspection. This will protect both you and the buyer.
This letter is in reference to real estate agent Kathy Kreutzberg. Kathy assisted my wife and me in our recent purchase of a property in the Highland, Illinois area. This purchase was especially challenging as we are relocating from Madison, Wisconsin. Kathy got our attention immediately by responding to an inquire we submitted on-line on a Saturday evening. We did not expect a response so quickly, let alone on a Saturday night. This was indicative of her working style as she was always available and a tireless worker. Kathy listened to our interests and assisted in helping us in the home search. Because of the distance we had to travel to view homes she was very patient and worked hard to arrange viewing around our schedule. She was also very candid in sharing local information about properties and the areas that matched our interests. Kathy was knowledgeable of the area, was helpful without being too aggressive. I would give Kathy the highest recommendation.
