The first step is to sit down and discuss your goals with me (604)935-7913.
The first steps in determining the right selling price for your home is gathering as much information as possible about your home, its condition and history.
I will view the property, evaluate the state of the home and use my extensive knowledge of both of the overall real estate market and the market specific to your neighbourhood to establish an accurate recommended asking price.
We will meet briefly once again to go over the details of the contract. I can answer all of your questions and we will sign the listing agreement.
I will advise you on the best possible steps that you can take to prepare your house to sell.
This includes hosting a Broker/Realtor Open House and a Public Open House (where applicable and at your discretion).
I will personally explain all offers and advise you through the offer and acceptance process.
About one week before the closing date, your lawyer or notary will schedule a meeting with you to sign all the necessary documents.
About one week before Closing, I will touch base with your lawyer or notary to make sure that everything is going smoothly and that they are prepared to close your deal successfully the following week. I will also call you so that you can rest assured.
On this day your deal "completes". You will receive the money for your property and the title will change hands. You will receive a call from our office as soon as we get the good news from the lawyer or notary.
This clears the seller of all financial encumbrances associated with the property. Any amounts owing (i.e. - strata fees in arrears) are paid for out of the selling price making it a clear title. The title now goes under the buyer's name and any new financial encumbrances (i.e. - mortgage) are applied.
At on this day, possession is legally that of the buyer's. At this time they are given the keys and can begin to move in.
After the sale is complete, Dave will follow-up with you to ensure everything went smoothly.
