PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR SALE

What more could you want than to get your home sold for the top price in a short time without any hassles? If you take a moment and read through the following suggestions before you accept our services, you’ll be on your way to a successful sale.

The goal is to simplify, depersonalize, and de-clutter the apartment in order for it to appear larger and brighter, giving a more spacious outlook to the potential buyers. It is important to attract as many qualified buyers as possible. While preparing your apartment for sale, it is essential to envision your apartment through a ‘buyer’s eyes’. Fact is, people purchase what they see, not ‘how it’s going to be’. Now is the time to make your apartment as buyer-friendly as possible.

 

The list of things below will help prepare your home/apartment ready for sale so you can attract maximum potential buyers.
GENERAL
  • First thing to do is to air out the home. Most people are turned off by even the smallest odor. Odors must be eliminated, especially if you have pets or if you are a smoker.
  • If the carpet has not been cleaned for over a year, now is the time to do it. Bare floors should be shined or polished, as well. Replace tiles if necessary.
  • Clean and remove the stains on any wooden doors and cabinets with a wood maintenance product.
  • Use an air freshener in all the rooms (but try to avoid strong scents, mild fragrance is pleasing to most) or fill the house with the pleasant aroma of fresh flowers or cinnamon.
  • Repaint the walls, if necessary, in a neutral color such as white. Paint is your best improvement investment for getting a greater return on your money. Presentation is the key.
  • Clear window ledges to give a nice glimpse inside and out.

Ask yourself, ‘Is there anything inside or outside the house that will hamper the sale?’ If so, replace it now. It is not a wise to wait until the sale.

Simplicity is the way to go. If it’s not furniture, it should not be on the floor. Remove all kinds baskets, luggage, etc. The more floor space the customers can see, the bigger the room will appear to them.

INTERIOR

LIGHTING

  • Upgrade all light fixtures with tube or energy saving bulbs.
  • Dust and clean all light fixtures and fans.
  • Turn on all the lights in the evening to welcome potential buyers.
WINDOWS
  • Clean the interior and exterior of all windows and glass doors.
  • Keep all the blinds and shades open and curtains removed to allow maximum light.
BATHROOMS
  • All the tubs, toilets, sinks; shower curtains in your home should be immaculate. Get rid of soap film, hair or other unsightly things. Polish the sinks with lemon or vegetable oil.
  • Put away unused shampoos, soaps, scrubbing implements, razors, waste bin, cleansers etc. under sink.
  • Remove all rugs and commode lids.
  • Streamline the washing counter with one or two decorative items.
  • Use baskets to hold make-up and toiletries so that after use they can be stored under the counter.
  • The grout and tile should be clean and repaired if necessary. There should be no leaks in the faucets or taps. Discolored grout should be bleached.
  • One or two towels can be used as decoration.
LIVING AREAS
  • Make sure that there is not too much furniture in the room. Select pieces that look the best and put the others in storage.
  • Store personal photos in storage and make the room as depersonalized as possible, so that potential buyers are able to visualize their personal items in the home.

There are several things you need to know before listing your home for sale! Not properly preparing a home for sale can put a home owner at a huge disadvantage.

The expression “You never get a second chance to make a first impression” is absolutely true when it comes to selling a home. A home that is well prepared for home showings will likely sell faster than it’s competition. When selling a home you must be sure that your home presents itself in the best possible light. Making sure a home is cleaned, de-cluttered, bright, freshly painted and odor-free are just a few things that a seller must do to prepare the home for showings.


Generally, a seller is responsible because the buyer orders one or more home inspections but it doesn’t obligate the seller to make repairs or modifications as a result of those inspections. Typically, inspection reports are used to negotiate repairs of major problems, or environmental or safety hazards that may be noted. The purchase contract should provide guidance for these negotiations.


There are a handful of methods that we use to determine the value of a home. The most common method to determine the value of a home is by completing a comparative market analysis. A comparative market analysis also known as a CMA is an in-depth evaluation of recently sold “comparable” homes in the past 6-12 months.

A professionally completed “CMA” will take into account many features of not only a home, but also the local area and neighborhood. Considerations that a professionally completed “CMA” include, but is not limited too:

Square footage
Number of bedrooms
Number of bathrooms
Upgrades to kitchen
Window quality
Roof age
Location
Style of residence
Flooring type


After getting relevant information, our team will visit the apartment and fix a sale price through discussion with you, the seller. We will then sign a MOU with you and the apartment will be listed in our Inventory, ready for Sale.
Payment Procedure to Seller : After getting full amount of agreed value from the buyer,  bti will deduct the commission amount. Rest of the amount will be refunded to you,  the Seller within 10 working days. At that time you will have to give POA to bti or give registration to the buyer directly.


Normally you can do a Deed of Agreement (DOA) with bti brokerage for 6(six) months duration. After that it may be extended through mutual understanding between us.


 Our commission policy for bti apartment is 5% (Five) of the total amount which will be deducted from the total agreed value which is settled by you, the seller. After deduction of bti commission, we will refund the rest of the amount to you.


It would be very unwise to try to back out of the contract because a purchase offer that’s accepted is a legal contract against which the buyer can seek legal remedies to enforce.


Our required document list is :

DOA (Registered) with Land owner and Developer.
POA (Registered) which is given by Land owner to Developer.
DOA with flat owner and Developer.
Hand over letter by developer.
Registration / Sale Deed copy.
Mutation copy.
RAJUK approved plan with forwarding letter.
Land document : CS, RS, Mohanagar Khatian, Namjari, Up to date Khajna copy, NEC from RAJUK, Clearance from all Govt. Authority (if required).


If you agree to give POA to bti brokerage then it will be preferrable. Or else, we will sign an agreement with you. You must give us POA or give registration directly to the buyer at the time of payment cleared to you.


This frequently asked question is not one seller’s like to ask when selling a home, however, it can come up frequently. Many sellers hope it is a quick sale and will give a large cash-flow. This isn’t always the case though. Every contract has different terms but generally speaking, if you decide to cancel the listing agreement, you could possibly be responsible for any expenses incurred by the real estate agent.


Once you sign agreement with us, only then, we will upload your flat on our website for sale.
