Moving usually requires more than just finding and buying a new home in Redondo Beach. It also requires selling your old home and this can actually be the most stressful part of the process. However, with the market bouncing back so well, it may not be all that hard to sell your home.

Choosing the right offer for your home will make it so much easier. Here are some of the things to understand about making sure you choose the right offer when selling your house.

The Process

By understanding what you will deal with when selling the home, you can move through the process a little easier. Your agent will help answer any questions you may have and you should understand every offer you receive is negotiable. The price, the terms and every part of the offer are negotiable. You can reject, accept or counter with the offers you receive.

Create Stipulations

If you want to make sure the deal goes smooth, you will want to set stipulations for anybody submitting an offer. Requiring prequalification for a mortgage is one of the most popular stipulations and helps to ensure you don't end up in a situation with a buyer unable to get a mortgage.

Take the Personal Emotion Out of It

A huge mistake many sellers make is letting their emotions get the best of them. When you make it a personal decision instead of a business decision, it can become dangerous quickly. Take the emotion out by setting specific standards for price, timeframe and other details of the potential deal. Remember, this is a business transaction and you have to treat it as such.

Review EVERYTHING!

Reviewing every part of the offer and the potential deal will not only protect you, but also help you to better connect with the buyer. You want to make sure you understand every single piece of the deal before you accept the offer.

Follow these steps and ask questions whenever necessary. This can be a fun and exciting process, but it can also become very stressful, if you're not careful. Listen to your agent and make sure you understand the entire process.
