What is my home worth?
Assessing the value of your home, your needs and your timeline can change a multitude of factors. How quickly you need the proceeds of the sale and the market conditions can help decide your path as you prepare to leave your current house. It’s a balance of current and future needs and the route you choose can always be changed until you enter into a contract.

Find a Realtor®

Finalizing a Buyer’s Offer
It’s the moment that you’ve worked for: you’ve received an offer on your home. If you’ve prepared well and the market conditions are right, you may receive multiple offers. There are several strategies to help you maximize your profits and minimize your stress during these final steps.
Closing is the final part of the process when ownership of your home is transferred to the buyer. Until closing, you are responsible for maintaining your home in the same condition as when it was shown, fixing any problems that are part of the terms of the contract and, of course, moving out. The last step is to pay the closing costs for the seller and hand over the keys.
