- Many of today’s buyers in the Westlake Village area set-up searches which deliver new listings to their email box every day. The first two weeks of your listing is considered the honeymoon period; be prepared to show off your home immediately.
- Most buyers will hire a professional inspector to look at your home. Inspectors typically check all working systems (heating, cooling, appliances, and alike), look for code violations and make note of possible challenges (for example: water stains on the ceiling may indicate a leaky roof). Your real estate consultant may spot potential issues before marketing your home and you may choose to hire your own inspector and make corrections before they become a concern of the buyer.
- Once the escrow has opened, you will be asked to complete several forms with dozens of questions about past repairs, amenities, pets, your neighborhood, and more.This questionnaire provides you an opportunity to disclose any known problems. Disclosure of your home’s challenges is important, ask your real estate consultant for help.
