Sellers - A Path from Getting Started to Closing

When you are ready to sell your home or property, there are many ideas, decisions, and processes you need to know about. You must first realize the home you currently live in is not yours once you place a sign in the yard and let the world know it is for sale. It would help if you reminded yourself that a few years or a lifetime home is now a real estate property for sale. At Rector Hayden, Realtors, we have hundreds of thousands of hours helping seller's market homes, negotiate contracts, tackle home inspections, and make it to the closing table.

We pride ourselves on offering sellers many tools and resources to expose properties for sale to the general public. Rector Hayden Realtors is a full-service brokerage company. We are there with you at the start of the process and stay with you until the closing table and beyond. Our company has been selling real estate since 1969. We know real estate, and we know our tools and knowledge can benefit your desire to sell your property.

The path below may help you in deciding to sell your home. We hope you will call upon Rector Hayden Realtors associates to assist you.

1. Thinking About Selling Your Home

An excellent place to start when thinking about selling your home is to look for facts about how the market is doing. How many months of inventory are on the market? How many days does it average to sell a home? Is the average selling price versus list price going up or down in the market? Market updates are available right here on RHR.com.

We highly recommend you speak with a Rector-Hayden agent to get specific market information about your area and price range. The best market information is called a CMA (Competitive Market Analysis), where one of our agents can look at just your home and compare it with homes currently on the market, recently sold, and recently expired.

2. Should you Fix Up, Expand, or Sell

Selling your home is NOT always your best move. Sometimes you need to tweak your house with a remodel or fix up something that has bothered you for months or years. Other times you need to invest some big dollars and expand. You love the neighborhood but need some more space; developing is the answer.

Brokerage companies and real estate agents meet and know a lot of people in the real estate industry. We know people. We know home repair and remodeling companies. We know mortgage companies like Prosperity Home Mortgage, which has special programs available for remodeling your home. However, many times a fix-up will not do. An expansion of your home does not seem the desired path to take. Then your mind begins to think now is the time to consider selling. We believe the time is right to move to step 3.

We partner with two home warranty companies. A Home is one of the most significant investments that a person will ever make, so keeping it protected with a home warranty is essential. If one of your home appliances or systems breaks down, it can mean more than your air conditioning or dryer not working - it can also mean having to cover an unexpected expense.
