Listing your home for sale
KEY SELLING FACTORS
With the help of your agent, you can determine the best asking price for your home, compared to similar homes on the market. Based on similar properties, you want to list your home at around the median price, not too high, and certainly not too low. Overpriced homes typically don’t sell, for the simple fact that buyers know they can find a similar home for a lower price.
Location is one of the key selling factors of your home. How is the school system in your area? Is there a good selection of entertainment options? Parks? What about restaurants and nightlife? All of these things should be detailed in your listing to attract more buyers.
What type of market are you dealing with?:

CLOSING & BEYOND
CONTRACT, CLOSING & BEYOND
Once you and your real estate agent have found an interested buyer, it’s time to close the deal. The process of negotiating your home sale can involve several different actions and people, and it can take time to resolve the factors in play.
The buyer’s agent will come to your agent with an offer, which will include price, closing date, and other conditions. You and your agent will discuss the offer, and either accept it or reply with a counter-offer. This conversation may go back and forth a number of times, and your personal circumstances or desires will dictate whether or not you choose to be patient or to walk away from the table. Yub Realty agents are skilled at the art of negotiation, and will work hard to get you the best value for your property.
After you agree on a price, the closing will be contingent upon attorney review of the sales contract, as well as inspections of the property. Depending on these reviews, the terms of the agreement may be renegotiated yet again.
If everything in the process so far has resolved, you’re ready to close the sale! Your respective agents and attorneys will continue to guide you both through the final steps, including transfer of money and deed.
