Closing a home after you get a contract

There are a lot of things that go on after you have got a contract on your home.  The first is the buyers agent then orders and home inspection on your home.  This is a sometimes stressful experience for the seller.

Sometimes there are things that come up during that inspection that need to addressed.  I know there are some agents that are not there for the inspection for their buyers or sellers.  Being a Realtor myself I am always there during the inspections whether it is a buyer or seller. I want to make sure my clients best interest are met.

The reason why I am so that I can see exactly what the home inspector is seeing and know what might be the issue.  95% of the tine it can be resolved and the sell gets done. I have had to really work hard at times to get the buyer and seller to agree on what needs fixed.  It usually comes down to a dollar amount that the buyer will except to get all the repairs finalized.

After that comes the appraisal. I always get comparable sales in the areas if I think the appraisal may be an issue.  I simple email them to the appraiser and I also send before and after pictures on a rehab.  Fortunately I have never missed a appraisal in my 16 year career. Who knows markets better than your agent?

Making sure that your realtor is involved in all the aspects of your transaction makes your buying or selling a home smoother.  Call Brett 602-363-6551 West USA Realty or 216-703-5740 Howard Hanna
