Information For Sellers
Your agent’s job is to help keep you on track every step of the way so you wont have to memorize this process. They should be aware of the deadlines for the buyer to remove their contingencies and for when your paperwork is due. They will also help you coordinate appointments with the buyers as well as handle any new negotiations that may arise during the escrow period. Hopefully this timeline has given you a snap shot of what to expect when selling your home and the general order of the process. As always, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact me!
