Selling a Home

Whether you're downgrading, upgrading, or moving to a new city or state, selling a home can give you a fresh start. We can help you with some of the practical and legal particulars of selling a home so that you can quickly seal the deal.

When you decide to sell your home, it's a good idea to prepare your residence for sale. Some things might seem obvious, like a fresh coat of paint and landscaping, while you might not have thought about having a home inspection done or a home staging expert come to create a winning first impression. As you transform your home from being the place where you live to a marketable property, you might consider making a list to keep track of everything. We can provide you with a free home sale worksheet that generates a checklist covering the whole home sale process, from comparing agents to tracking closing costs, to getting the right property deed. Speaking with an attorney who handles real estate is also a wise move if you ever feel like you need more guidance.

Below you'll find more information about selling a home, including a detailed list of easy hints for selling. And if you decide that you need to seek some professional advice, we can help you find a lawyer.
