Analyze why you are selling - If you understand your motives, you will be able to better negotiate and to get what it is that you want, whether it be a quick sale, high price, or somewhere in the middle.
Prepare your home for the buyer - Maximize the strengths of your property and fix up its weaknesses. You want the buyer to walk away from your home with a lasting good impression.
Find a good real estate agent that understands your needs - Make sure that your agent is loyal to you, and can negotiate to help you achieve your goals. In addition, they should be assertive and honest with both you and the buyer.
Be prepared for negotiation - Learn and understand your buyer’s situation; what are their motives? Can you demand a big deposit from them? Try to lock in the buyer so that the deal goes through.
Negotiate for the best price and the best terms - Learn how to counter offer to get maximum value from every offer.
Make sure the contract is accurate and complete - Be honest with your disclosures; you do not want to lose the deal because you were lying or diminishing your home’s defects. Insist the buyers get a professional inspection. This will protect both you and the buyer.
Pete Klicker is a great realtor. He cares about his clients and goes the extra mile for them, no matter what. He was instrumental in keeping my family on track and helped get our approval completely processed.
He met our family’s needs and exceeded our expectations! I would recommend his services to anyone.B. Hart Wesley Chapel, FL
When we needed to sell my parents’ home in Zephyrhills, I asked our brokers in Sarasota for a reference. I’m so delighted they recommended Pete Klicker. Pete has consistently exceeded our expectations, helping prep the house for sale, canvassing neighborhoods to prospect buyers and “having our back” while we were 90 minutes away. He’s efficient, thorough and, as a bonus, fun to work with. And he got the job done!R. Coats Sarasota, FL
