Need to Sell Your Home in Williamson County?
Do you find yourself thinking, “I’m interested in selling my home, but I don’t know where to start”? As your Williamson County Real Estate Expert, I can show you how to sell a house that will attract the best offers and I will personally work closely with you during the whole process from listing to closing.
Now is a great time to sell!
As one of the fastest growing and wealthiest counties in the nation, all of Williamson County is drawing in new residents looking to relocate near the excellent schools and charming communities. Close to half of the county’s residents were born outside Tennessee. The influx of buyers from other places highlights the need for an experienced REALTOR® to make sure your home is shown to the full range of potential buyers.
And while this growing market is good, the process of selling a home is complex. It requires understanding the market, knowing how to market your home to its targeted buyers, and expertise in the real estate legal process.
As an experienced realtor focused specifically on Williamson County, I can help! We will work together ahead of the listing to get your home ready to go on the market. Then, I will work to be sure your home is shown to qualified buyers who are interested in exactly what you have to offer.
Listing My House
One of the most important steps, when you are ready to sell, is to find a qualified real estate specialist in your area. I work almost exclusively in the Williamson County area, so I know the market, the potential buyers, and the features that attract interest. I would be thrilled to help you through the process of listing and selling.
When you get ready to list your home, there are some basic steps to take:
Pick an agent who specializes in your type of home and your area. I would be honored to work with you in this capacity.
Work with your agent to price your home. Pricing too low will lose you money. Pricing too high will dissuade buyers and leave your home on the market longer. A local expert can show you comparable sales and analyze the market to know how you should price. Since I only focus on Williamson County, I am aware of all the sales in the area and can show you precisely how your house fits into the county market.
Get your home ready for showings. This includes making repairs – even small flaws can be used in negotiations with a buyer, so it is often worth the work and investment to correct any problems. You will also want to have your home cleaned from top to bottom and even staged if you have already moved out. I am happy to work with you on staging if needed.
Advertise your home for sale. Your home should be posted online with lots of pictures and extensive detail. You may also want to use traditional mailed marketing to reach local buyers. Showing your home is also part of this process.
As your agent, I will walk you through each of these steps, help market your listing, arrange open houses, and make sure your listing ends up in front of many buyers’ agents. I use a customized marketing plan for each client to ensure your home is seen by the right potential buyers.
Selling My Home
Once buyers are interested, it is time to sell your house! This is another step in the process where, as your real estate agent, I can be a huge help. I will facilitate the submitted offers and work with you on negotiations regarding price, repairs, and contingencies.
Together, we will discuss counter offers and how to handle multiple offers that might come in. Ultimately, the decision is yours about what matters most – a guaranteed sale, a higher price, few or no improvements required, contingency issues, and more. I will also work with you through inspections and required repair steps if they are necessary.
Some common issues to consider at this point:
The buyer might want a contingency clause. This means they don’t officially buy your house until certain conditions are met. Some are simple, like having repairs done or passing certain inspections. It is also common for buyers who are moving from a home they already own to include a contingency that states they must sell their own home first.
What is the best closing date? Do you need to move by a certain point related to your children’s schooling or when you start a new job elsewhere? I can help you choose the right closing date and, if necessary, negotiate a time you could stay in the house after the sale. This can be especially useful if you are waiting for a closing date on the home you are moving in to.
Once that work is done, I will work with you and the buyer’s agent through closing to make the process as simple as possible. Together, we will finalize a contract that specifies all the inspections and repairs that must be completed before the sale. I will work with a title company to make sure your title is clear and ready for transfer.
On the final day – Closing– We will meet with the buyer’s side to officially sign the papers. At this point, you will transfer the title, hand over the keys, and receive payment!
