A Successful Closing
The closing table is where buyer and seller can celebrate the final stage of a successful home sales transaction. On this happy occasion, you sign the closing papers, trade keys, and wish one another well. It is to everyone's advantage to prepare for the closing such that all the details are worked out in advance.
As the home seller, how can you help ensure that your closing is a relaxed, cooperative event? First, enlist your real estate agent's help to ensure that all issues are resolved ahead of time. Repairs should be completed, agreements kept, the house broom-clean and ready for the new owners to move in. The atmosphere doesn't need to become adversarial, and minor upsets should not threaten the entire transaction. If you anticipate a problem, no matter how minor it may seem, be sure to communicate the situation to your real estate agent in advance, so that it can be resolved before the final closing date.
Do These Real Estate Tips Really Apply to YOU?
We've learned these tips through years of experience as top REALTORS®. But we know that YOUR situation might be different. That's why we're here.
Appraisals have been a difficult topic in a down real estate market. Remember we need to sell your house to 3 people: the buyer, their realtor, and most importantly the appraiser. Recently, after selling a glenview home, I met an appraiser at the property. This gentleman was from Romeoville, IL. He was not from the area, did not know our local market, and in my opinion had no business attempting to appraise this home. The Marla Schneider Team is very experienced in dealing with an issue such as this. Under this circumstance we need to do the appraisers job for him. When we meet him at the property, we provide him with current comparable sales, and actives that will justify the sale price. Many transactions in the Northshore of Chicago have fallen apart due to low appraisals. I can confidently say that we have never had a deal fall through due to an appraisal. Experience and knowledge is why we are the best.
