At your listing appointment, you will meet with a real estate agent at your home. It’s important to understand everyone’s roles in the process and how agents may cooperate to sell your house.
Demand Sets Price
After conferring with the listing agent on market conditions and comparable nearby sales and properties on the market, the home seller will set the listing, or asking, price for the house.
What Conveys with The Home?
The home seller must be ready to supply the listing agent with a specific inventory of the personal property that is included in the real estate property for sale. Examples of items to “convey” may include draperies, drapery rods, remaining heating oil, firewood, washer, dryer, refrigerator, stove, microwave, swimming pool chemicals, awnings, storm doors and windows, screens, blinds, shutters, and window air conditioners, among similar items. The home seller should tag or remove items that are not intended to convey.
When the home seller is ready to put the house on the market, a listing agreement is completed, indicating a specific period the agreement is in effect (also known as the listing period), and this is signed by the seller. You’ve now hired a listing broker and listing agent.
