Whether your property is a home, condominium, rural property like a farm or barn, or any other kind of residential real estate in the Ottawa area, the main priority behind your sale is to close the sale and receive your sales proceeds in a timely and efficient manner.
When you are selling your home, there is a lot to consider and to learn in the process of selling a piece of property. Learning the true market value is an essential first step, as it will help you to determine your asking price. The list of other important decisions you have to make early on include:
– How you want to list your home
– How you want to market the home to prospective buyers
– How you wish to accept payment of your sales proceeds
– Preparing your home for viewing
Keep lines of communication open with your real estate agent and your lawyer, both of whom will help you throughout this process by consulting with you, negotiating for you, and protecting your rights as the seller. Every offer and transaction is unique, and you need people on your side to make sure that your unique needs are met and your rights are assured.
When you receive an offer on your property, always make sure to have an experienced real estate lawyer look it over. With their guidance you can make the most informed decision about how to proceed next, either by signing your acceptance, making a counter-offer or sign-back. A good lawyer might suggest possible changes that will be to your benefit, or point out clauses in the paperwork that might pose a risk of hidden expense to you.
