Sell your home with Cutler

Selling Your Home


The first question you might want to ask yourself is, "Why do I want to sell my home?" Do you need more space? Are you an empty nester looking for a smaller place?

Assessing your home is key in beginning the home selling process. You may want to ask yourself,

What would I like to see, or not see, if I were touring this home as a potential home buyer?

Determining Property Value


There are a number of factors that go into determining the value of a home.

  • It is realistic to compare the homes in your area and the asking price of those homes.
  • The law of supply and demand always comes into play. Do you live in an area with increasing job opportunities or an increasing supply of homes?
  • Your needs greatly impact the selling price of a home. Do you need a quick sell or do you have time to sit on your sale?
  • The selling price is not cut and dry. On many occasions, we will help you negotiate the price, split closing costs or offer different allowances to the buyer, to make the sale of the home complete.

Negotiating Process


Cutler real estate makes a complicated process simple, and will walk you through each of the following steps:

1
Step One — The Offer

An acceptable offer depends on many different things:

  • Is the proposed offer near the asking price?
  • Your timeframe — Do you have another house payment?
  • Do you have enough time to wait for the agent to bring you more potential buyers?
The Offer

Step Two — Negotiating

During the negotiating process of the sale of a home, you can react in one of three different ways:

  • Accept the buyer's proposed offer
  • Decline the buyer's offer
  • Make a new counter-offer
Negotiating

Step Three — Closing

After the emotional ups and downs of the entire process of executing a real estate transaction, the closing process is the final step. This is also referred to as the "Settlement" or "Escrow" process. In Ohio, this process is carried out by a real estate escrow and title company mutually agreed upon by the buyer and seller in the negotiation stage of the transaction. During this process, the title company will collect all necessary information from the title examiner, mortgage company, real estate agents, buyers and sellers to prepare the title to be transferred to the new owner. The entire escrow process usually takes about 30-45 days to complete based on factors such as the buyer’s financing conditions and appraisal, successful property inspections, title exam and property survey. At the end of the escrow process, both buyer and seller will schedule a time to execute the final closing documents. In most jurisdictions, the title to the property is officially transferred to the new owner upon the execution, delivery and recording of the deed at the county recorder’s office.

Step Four — Possession

Keys are given to the buyer on a date mutually agreed upon by the buyer and seller during the negotiation stage. If the keys are to be delivered at closing, closing is defined as “the recording of the deed” on most real estate contracts. Congratulations you have sold your home!
