SHOWING YOUR HOME
Once your home is ready to show, as your Windermere agent, I will begin marketing it to potential buyers and other sales associates. If possible, leave the home when buyers are present so they feel comfortable asking their agent candid questions.
 
Other helpful tips include:
  • Remove pets. Take them with you or keep them penned in the yard or garage.
  • Open shades and curtains to let in light.
  • Turn on enough lights so the home is well-lit.
  • Remove clutter from tables and bookshelves. Neatness makes rooms seem larger.
  • Put away items in the yard such as garden tools, bicycles and toys.
  • Light a fire in the fireplace to create a cozy atmosphere.
  • Grind up part of a lemon in the disposal to add a fresh smell to the kitchen.
  • Keep radios and TVs off, or on low volume.
  • Keep money and other valuables, as well as prescription drugs, out of sight.
PURCHASE AND SALE AGREEMENT
Once you've found the home you want to buy, together we'll complete a purchase and sale agreement. This is the contract in which you and the seller outline the details of the property transfer. The purchase and sale agreement usually consists of the following:
  • Earnest money receipt
  • Financing addendum
  • Inspection addendum
  • Conditions/disclosure addendum
  • Contingency addendum--when appropriate
  • Addendum outlining special conditions
  • Lead-based paint notification--when appropriate
  • In selected areas, the following forms will also be part of your agreement: "Agency disclosure" and "Property disclosure form completed by the property seller"
