Does anyone here offer services after a house is sold? Like maybe going to the new homeowners house to see how they're doing in their new home?
Basically an added bonus for new homeowners, where we'll send them some goodies and stuff. Do you offer anything like this?
I only offer help with recommendations and inspections post sale.
Outside of that, I will keep in touch with my client for as long as they need help with home issues or knowing who to contact. That is about it.
One the dotted line is signed, I move onto another home or client. I don't offer any services beyond selling the home. I know some may do this but in real estate, it really isn't necessary.
If you’re a first-time home seller, the closing process may seem overwhelming. You just want to sell your home quickly, but there’s a long list of steps to take (and expenses to incur) before the deal is official.
Many real estate contracts require sellers to leave a home in “broom-clean condition.” That means that sellers should sweep up after themselves, clear out closets, shelves and cabinets, take everything out of the refrigerator, throw out all the garbage and leave the home presentable.
Repairs to be made after closing can happen in one of several ways: The seller gives the buyer a lump sum at closing to cover the cost of repairs, which the buyer agrees to carry out. The seller prepays a contractor to do the work. ... The amount is usually computed at 1.5 times the estimated cost.
When an offer has been accepted, or an auction has been successful, the buyer and seller sign the contract, and the property is taken off the market. The buyer will then have to pay a deposit, normally 10 per cent of the purchase price, although in some cases this can be negotiated. At an auction, a deposit is usually paid on the spot. Once the deposit is paid, things can progress to the next step in the process.
You’ve finished negotiations and accepted an offer from a buyer. Congratulations! Now, there are a few things to take care of:
Do a title search and obtain title insurance
Your closing agent will order a title search, which is a review of public records to make sure you’re the legal owner of your property. If there are any claims or judgments against the property, the title search should uncover them. These issues must be resolved for the sale to move forward.
