Sell your home with CondoGo
Make you sell simple for high price
The modern way to move
Here’s how we make it easy to sell your home
- Once you’ve chosen your CondoGo agent, and together have prepped your house for sale and set a price, you’re ready for the public to see your home.
- A showing happens either at an open house, which is a scheduled session while anyone can come by without an appointment, or during an appointment scheduled with you or your listing agent.
- Your CondoGo agent is a great source of advice on details for your home preparations so that your house is placed competitively in the market. Planning will likely include two phases. During phase one, before photos are taken and before the first showing, you should:
Congratulations! You received a message from your CondoGo agent that you have an offer on your home. Now you need to evaluate that offer and decide how to respond.
- The price amount of the offer
- An explanation of how the buyers will pay
- The terms – such as a request for closing cost help or contingencies such as the sale of the buyers’ house, a final mortgage approval, a satisfactory home inspection and an appraisal
- A target date for closing
- Money deposit
- Irrevocable time limit for the offer
- Whether the buyer has included or waived contingencies on the offer.
- Where the funds are coming from, such as all-cash, a reputable local lender, a well-known online lender or etc.
- The proposed closing date and date of possession of the house to see if it is in line with your needs
- Any special requests for items to pass on or for special inspections etc.
Most buyers request a home inspection as a condition of their offer. While a home inspector will dig deeper into your home than a buyer, the preparation you made before your first showing should help you get ready for the inspection. Your CondoGo agent can give you personalized advice, too.
A home inspection is a detailed review of your home’s structure and systems by a professional home inspector. Buyers can use the inspection report to decide either to withdraw their offer if a major issue is uncovered or to request repairs if the contract is contingent on a satisfactory report. In some cases, a home inspection is solely for the buyers’ information and can’t be used to negotiate.
Once the inspection report has been created you and your CondoGo agent can discuss how to handle any possible issues the buyers mention. You can negotiate with the buyers, decide to fix an item, provide money for the buyers to fix it themselves or provide documentation that the problem has already been addressed.
As you near the end of your home sale journey, you will need to pass one more test: an appraisal. Your CondoGo agent can help you collect materials and prepare for the appraiser’s visit.
While it’s tempting to focus on your next move, your CondoGo agent is likely to remind you that until the closing is over, you have some final responsibilities as a seller.
