It is important that we make corrections as needed within the first 2 weeks.
In preparation for offer review and counteroffers, we will go over the important parts of the purchase agreement and look at possible issues that often come up before listing your home.
Do NOT Choose a Listing Agent Just Because …
Because of their company name.
Companies do not monitor their agents market plans.
Because they seem nice.
They need to be respectful, direct, candid.
Because they promise a higher price.
There is a strategy to picking the right price.
Because they quickly agree to lower their commission.
Only lack of confidence, skill or laziness would cause an agent to agree to work for less upfront.
Hire the agent with the experience, knowledge, negotiation skills and
a comprehensive marketing plan
to “Net Top Dollar”.
