The following is a general guide to selling your property:
Have a professional home inspector do a thorough inspection of your property and provide a written report. It should include anything that needs repair or renovation. Tackle the job according to your budget and calculated return and make a list of the repairs you've done. Include the contractor's name and whether a permit was pulled and completed for the job.
Declutter your home and stage it with the minimal furnishings to present an exciting ambience.
The yard is as important as the exterior of the house; it creates the first impression and curbside appeal.
Nedra will have a complimentary preliminary title report done on your property ahead of time to see if there may be any title issues or encumbrances that need to be addressed before going into escrow. She advises sellers to have a survey done before going on market to clear any problems.
If you are planning to do a 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchange on your investment property, it is advisable to let your Realtor know ahead of time. Consult your CPA or real estate attorney about the requirements so avoid defaulting on the strict Federal guidelines.
Nedra will run a Comparable Market Analysis on your property to help you determine a list price based on recent sales, current supply and market trend.
The first two weeks of market time is the most crucial. New listings in the MLS receive the most attention when they first hit the market. Buyer response will tell you whether your list price is off.
Pictures say a thousand words. Have a professional photographer who specializes in real estate property photography provide the photos of your property for the MLS.
Exposure on the Internet
Nedra has vast exposure on the internet including Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com. Google Nedra Chung to see the internet exposure your listing will receive.
Once offers start to come in, attention to details become even more intricate. Nedra will put 23 years of her experience to work for you.
Keeping track of the transaction in escrow so it does not fall out is the final step to a successful sale. Nedra is prompt and professional.
Recordation and Transfer of Title
In Hawaii, it takes three banking days for a transaction to be recorded at the Bureau of Conveyances; two banking days, if it is an all-cash sale. Funds for settlement need to be in the form of a cashier's check.
