Information for Sellers – Sell your Water Island Home

Prepare Your Home

If you think you’d like to sell your Water Island home, it’s time to start preparing your home for the sale. Now is the time to stop thinking of it as “your home” and start picturing it as someone else’s house! Improvements such as decluttering, painting, and landscaping should be made to improve the way it shows to potential buyers. Minimize personal items like family photos, remove any evidence of pets, consider staging the house for maximum appeal.

Determine the Value of Your Property

The value of your property is determined by a number of factors including location, condition of the home, and the real estate market in your area. You want to be careful when selling your home not to list your house too low or too high. Working with a realtor to determine the best listing price for your Water Island home can make the difference between a quick sale and a long selling process.

Listing Your Property

Once a listing price has been decided, it’s time to list your property! Your realtor can get your home listed in your area’s MLS (multiple listing service), promote your property, and bring potential buyers. Once an offer is received, you can choose to accept, decline, or make a counter offer.

The Closing Process

After accepting a buyer’s offer, it is time to move on to closing. This process transfers the property’s title from the seller to the buyer. Both parties will sign legal documents reflecting this transfer, then the buyer will receive keys to the home and you, the seller, will receive payment for the property.
