Establishing a List Price
There are many factors to consider when selling your home. We will provide you with a market analysis to help YOU establish an asking price. Certain factors like location, condition, average number of days on the market in your area, as well as many others, will help determine the current market value of your home. And since the Real Estate market changes every day, we will also implement a pricing strategy to keep you AHEAD of the market!
Preparing your Home to go on the market
Two words : WOW FACTOR. Let’s imagine that you are a Buyer who will be viewing your home when it becomes available for sale. What will they see as they walk through the front door? How will they feel as they walk through your family room? There are so many details that require attention for you to make the BEST first impression possible! Once you have cleaned, decluttered, painted and made any minor repairs we can start dressing your home for the occasion. Our Listing Specialists have been trained to help you ‘stage’ your home to be market ready! We will help you arrange your furniture and personal belongings to ensure that your home WOWS potential buyers. Selling a vacant home? We fully stage at no upfront cost to you!
Marketing Your Home
It is no longer curb appeal… it’s click appeal that gets the Buyer through the door! Once we have prepared your home to hit the market, a professional photographer will take photos for print and online advertising at NO ADDITIONAL COST to you! There are no a-la-carte hidden fees when you list with the Talk to Dina Team! We will also determine the best marketing plan to help get your home sold quickly and for the most money.
To do or not to do… a Pre-Inspection.
Although the Buyer will usually perform their own home inspection, you can request that one of our preferred Home Inspectors to do a pre-inspection of your home at a lower, upfront cost. The pre-inspection can uncover certain items that you may want to consider repairing prior to your home hitting the market to ensure a smooth transaction.
Disclose, Disclose, Disclose!
Arizona law requires a Seller to disclose material (important) facts about the property, even if you are not asked by the buyer or a real estate agent.

Negotiations during the Offer Process
Since most Buyers will have a Realtor representing them on their home purchase, it is crucial that you have a knowledgeable Realtor on your side! There are many factors to consider when the offers start rolling in: offer price and terms, closing date, Buyer’s financing, and contingency clauses. We will guide through the negotiation process to ensure that your needs are put first.
Negotiations during Inspection Contingency Period
The Buyer will have an inspection period for them to investigate the condition of the home, crime statistics in the area, as well as any other information that the Buyer feels is pertinent to their home purchase. During this period, the buyer will have the right to accept the property in it’s current As-Is condition, or request that you, the Seller, make certain repairs. In some cases, you can adjust the offer terms to find a Win-Win solution. However, the Buyer will have the right to cancel the purchase contract during this contingency period if they feel that the home is not right for them. Since every home sale is unique, the Talk To Dina Team will guide you through this negotiation stage to ensure that your needs are put first.
The appraisal serves as an instrument to establish current market value of your home. In most cases, the Buyer’s Lender will require an appraisal be done prior to Closing. An Appraiser will visit your property to inspect, take measurements, and evaluate the previous sales in the area to determine market value AND to determine if certain repairs must be done to support the sales price and/or the Buyer’s financing conditions. In some cases, you may need to re-negotiate certain contract terms if the appraisal doesn’t support the sales price. Our experienced Agents will be able to help guide you through this process to find the win-win to move forward to a successful closing!
Once all contingencies have been satisfied, we will schedule for you to sign your closing papers at the Title Company. Keys will be released to the Buyer upon recordation, which is not always on the same day of signing the closing documents.
