If you’re planning on buying or selling a home in Orange County, one of the most important things you can do is hire a Realtor® who uses a checklist which they will follow to help you buy or sell a home.
In this post we will list some of the most common items which should be on your Realtor’s checklist to help you buy or sell a property in Orange County.
Credit – Make sure you pull your credit reports at least one to two months before applying for a mortgage loan so you can fix any inaccurate or negative items on your credit report.
Tip – “You can purchase your 3-in-1 credit report online and view your credit reports at once from Equifax, Experian and Trans Union.”
Mortgage Loan – Get pre-approved for a mortgage loan instead of pre-qualified.
Home Search Criteria – Know exactly what you’re searching for in a home including: location, bedrooms, bathrooms and amenities since this will only help us find the perfect home for you.
Staging – We will make recommendations on which areas of your home should be de-cluttered and staged so it will sell.
Tip – “De-cluttering and home staging are two of the most important parts of selling a home since these two steps help us to present your home as a product which a potential home buyer could envision themselves living in.”
Pricing – Your Realtor® will do a comparable analysis of homes which have sold recently in your neighborhood then price your home competitively so it will sell.
Negotiations – During the process of selling your home in Orange County, CA your Real Estate agent will represent your best interests during negotiations to insure that you are able to sell your home for the most money.
Closing – As we wrap up the sale of your home for you, we will handle all aspects of the closing the sale including answering your questions regarding contracts, and anything which may come up during closing.
