Before you put your Scottsdale AZ home up for sale, you need to take a look at your home, and ask yourself one question.” If I were a buyer looking to buy a home, would I buy this house, and if I did, what would I ask to be fixed?”. When you have answered that question, make a list of all the items that you would want to have fixed if you were the buyer.
Some items to think about while looking at your Scottsdale AZ home, are the walls painted a color that most people will like, or should I repaint them, are there any items that are not working, how old is the roof, how old is the AC, are all the fixtures and cabinets and counter-tops dated. When you have checked the house and made a list of everything that needs to be fixed or changed in the house, then you need to put a dollar figure on all those items.
Now that you have your list, and the cost of accomplishing that list, this is where a contact us can be a valuable asset. When we visit your home and talk with you about listing your property, the first things that need to be addressed, with reference to your homes condition, is making it a home that creates a great first impression.
You only have one chance to make a first impression in the potential buyers mind. The buyer starts to form their opinion of your property from the look of your home as they drive up to it. If they see your home on the internet, their opinion starts with the description and pictures, etc.. Homes For Sale In Scottsdale AZ will go over all the items that need to be addressed, some that will cost you time, and some that will cost time and money.
We will then go over the cost of all those items, vs the sales price, and the time it will take to sell. If the difference in the sales price, and the time it will take to sell your home, is enhanced by making the repairs, and the sales price will offset the repair costs, then we will recommend that the repairs be made. We could make an article of just this step, so for now just understand how your home looks, will make a big impression on the buyers and will ultimately be reflected in the sales price and length of time it take to sell.
OK, now that your Scottsdale AZ home is ready to be placed on the market, how do you plan on marketing the property.

OK, so you have someone that is wanting to buy your home for sale in Scottsdale Arizona, great, if you are doing this on your own, how will you handle this part of the selling process? What contract will you use to make sure that you are being covered, and to make sure that the person is really serious, and can actually buy your home? The contract part of the sale is a very important part, and when you have Homes For Sale In Scottsdale AZ, we take care to make sure that you understand all the details of the contract, and negotiating the contract, terms and conditions. We will also make sure that the buyer is qualified to buy your home, and that you indeed, do have a good deal.
Once you have negotiated the terms and conditions of the contract, then Escrow needs to be opened. This is where a neutral party is given the responsibility of making sure that, in the simplest form, you have the right to sell the property, and the buyer is getting what they believe they are getting. When you employ our services, we will make sure that you understand this process completely, as well.
Now that escrow is open, the buyer is going to want to do an inspection, or maybe they will not want to do an inspection. This is another important part of the sale, and by using our services, you will be covered against any future problems, by what is done in this part of the sale.
If there is an inspection done, and there are repairs requested to be performed, with Homes For Sale In Scottsdale AZ, we could advise you as to how to proceed. If you are doing this on your own, you will have to determine if you are going to make the repairs or not. Let us say you have to do repairs, and you do them, then the buyer will want to inspect the property again to make sure that the repairs were accomplished. When they do the inspection, you should be getting something in writing from them, saying that they accept the repairs, and they are proceeding with their purchase. When you have us representing you, everything will be explained in great detail.
OK, the inspections all done, the buyer is still buying the home, and now you should be getting ready to move, or have already moved if this is your personal residence. Once again, when you have us representing you we can help to make this whole process as easy as possible. You need to make sure that all the utilities are scheduled to be turned off at a certain date. You will also need to go to the title company and sign all the necessary paperwork for the sale.
Once everything is done at the title company for you and the buyer, and assuming that the buyer gets the loan, if they needed a loan to buy your property, the title company will get the funds from the buyer, and record the home in the buyers name. At this point the home no longer belongs to you, and is now the new home of the buyer.
We have only made this brief, explanation of the sales process, to give you an idea of the amount of steps that are necessary to sell a property. We strongly urge you to get the help of a dedicated professional Realtor, to make the sales process a smooth, and relatively simple process. We welcome any questions from you, and would be glad to be of service to you, when the time comes to consider selling your Scottsdale, AZ. home.
