Listing Your Home for Sale in NC

When you decide to list your property for sale, most agents in North Carolina use a form called the Exclusive Right to Sell, which is a contract between you and the agent’s real estate company. In essence, you are providing the company with the opportunity (and responsibility) to offer your property for sale and use their marketing efforts to give it good exposure to the world, so people can find it and get interested in it. You can expect that your agent will take on much of the task of gathering information and presenting the property in the best possible light. But the seller is ultimately in charge of making a number of disclosures and decisions in cooperation with the agent. These include the list price, which personal property may be included with the sale, whether or not to offer a home warranty, whether or not to have open houses and much more. Also, the listing agreement asks for a lot of vital information about the property, including any mortgages or other debts that need to be paid when the property is sold, whether or not the property is in a flood zone, is it leased to someone, are there any assessments or liens, is the seller facing bankruptcy or foreclosure and so on. In other words, this is a fairly detailed process that deserves good, well-considered attention from both the seller and the agent. Does it sound like a lot to deal with? Don’t worry, sellers and agents work through this and get it done every day. For sound advice and lots of personal service, you can count on Elisabeth and George. We are dedicated to doing an excellent job when it’s time to sell your property.
