Seller's Terminology

When you're researching home selling tips and real estate agents, you may come across unfamiliar terminology. What's the difference between a "buyer's agent" and a "seller's agent"?  Here are the terms to know.

  • Seller's Agent: The agent that represents you and your property. 
  • Buyer's Agent: An agent who represents the home buyer.
  • Dual Agent: An agent representing both you and the home buyer.

How to Avoid a Foreclosure

Unfortunately, financial hardships happen. If you are a homeowner facing a foreclosure, you have the option of avoiding it with a short sale. You may be able to negotiate a short sale with your lender if you currently owe more money than your property is currently worth. You can learn more about foreclosures and short sales here, and you can call us at 919.612.9885 to discuss your options.


After You Close, It's Time to Move

Once you have sold your home, it's time to move. Many Triangle homeowners who have sold a home before know that moving can often be a stressful process. But we have the necessary tips to help you enjoy a smooth move. Organization is key. Here are a few tips to help you easily transition from your current home.

  • Sell your unwanted household items. Make your move easier by getting rid of your excess belongings. This also ensure that your next home is clutter free and organized!
  • Use bubble wrap to protect your fragile belongings. You don't want to break anything in the move! Use bubble wrap to protect your glass, porcelain, and other fragile possessions.
  • Pack heavier items in smaller boxes. Even a reinforced box can break if it's filled with too many heavy items.

Choose the Right Real Estate Agent

As a home seller, you will need to interview several real estate agents to determine which one will represent you. Since your home is likely your largest financial investment, you should not choose your representative without careful research. When choosing a real estate agent, ask about the agent's marketing strategies, testimonials from past clients, and recently sold properties.
