The Central Texas Home Selling Process

Selling your home with a full time and qualified Residential Realtor with  Longhorn Realty will help streamline the process, ensure legal compliance, and maximize the value of your property. Here's the basic process to securing a residential broker and the steps to selling all types of Central Texas properties.

Prepare Your Home for Selling:

  • Clean and declutter: Make your home as presentable as possible by cleaning and decluttering each room.
  • Repairs and improvements: Address any necessary repairs and consider making strategic improvements to increase the property's appeal.

Hire a Real Estate Agent:

  • Selling with a local expert: Select a reputable real estate agent with knowledge and experience in the Central Texas market.
  • Sign a listing agreement: Work with your agent to establish the terms of your partnership, including the listing price, commission, and duration of the agreement.

Set the Right Price to Sell:

  • Research with your Realtor. Understand the current real estate market in Central Texas by looking at recent sales and current listings.
  • Consult with your Realtor. A local Realtor can provide a comparative market analysis (CMA) to help you determine the optimal listing price.

List & Market Your Home:

  • Professional photography: High-quality photos can significantly impact your listing's attractiveness.
  • Online and offline marketing: Utilize various channels, such as online listings, social media, and traditional marketing methods, to reach potential buyers.

Showing your Property:

  • Coordinate showings: Work with your agent to schedule individual showings for interested buyers.

Receive and Negotiate Offers:

  • Evaluate offers: Review and consider each offer carefully, taking into account the proposed price, contingencies, and closing timeline.
  • Negotiate terms: Work with your agent to negotiate terms that are favorable to you.

Under Contract and Due Diligence:

  • Once you accept an offer, the property is typically considered "under contract."
  • A copy of the executed contract is then sent to the title company.
  • The buyer will conduct inspections and possibly negotiate repairs or credits based on the findings during their option period.

Closing Process:

  • The title company will handle the closing process, ensuring that the transfer of ownership is legally and financially sound.
  • Finalize details: Complete any remaining paperwork, and ensure that all necessary parties are ready for closing day.

Closing Day:

        • Sign documents: Both the buyer and seller will sign the necessary paperwork to transfer ownership.
        • Receive funds: Once all documents are signed and the transaction is funded, the transaction is then complete. Buyer receives keys and seller will receive the proceeds from the sale.

Throughout the process, your real estate agent will play a crucial role in guiding you, providing advice, and handling the various details involved in selling your Central Texas home. Keep in mind that real estate transactions can be complex, and it's important to work with professionals to navigate the process successfully.
