OFFER REVIEW & NEGOTIATIONS:
As offers come in I will assist you in analyzing them and, if multiple offers are received, in comparing their merits. What is the likelihood of a particular offer succeeding? Is the buyer truly pre-approved? Are they genuinely committed to making their offer work or are they just ‘fishing’? Does the time frame they’ve indicated match well with yours? I will query the buyer’s agent for any details of interest to you that are not made clear in the offer’s written terms.
MANAGING THE TRANSACTION:
Once an offer is accepted, I manage the process from beginning to end — monitoring compliance on both sides from the time of acceptance until closing. Making sure that the title report, your disclosures, and any other documents required by law, or specifically requested by the contract, are delivered on your behalf and returned from the buyer in accordance with the terms of the contract. If the buyer requests a concession after reviewing disclosures or conducting investigations — most commonly this would be in the form of a request for repairs, a price reduction, a credit to their closing costs, or a change in the closing date — I’ll assist you in assessing the merits of the request and negotiate on your behalf for a win-win resolution.
CLOSING THE TRANSACTION:
I will accompany you to the escrow office when it is time to sign final documents to assure that you are allowed whatever time you require to review this paperwork and to be sure that it accurately represents what you’ve agreed to.
The Sale Process Preparations, Pricing & Presentation— pricing advice, staging guidance, assuring proper disclosures are made, developing and implementing a marketing strategy, inspection and repair work coordination, contract compliance assistance, assertive advocacy, and expert negotiation — my intent is to economize the use of your time and to make your move as smooth and profitable as possible.
