Selling Your Home - a deal is not a deal until the papers are signed.

Selling your home is a simple process that can take months.  From the initial preparation for the market to receiving the offer and getting the signed contract can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months.

And then, after the contract is signed, if a mortgage is involved, there may be another 30-45 days.

During this month or so the seller really has little to do other than preparing for the move and making the property available for inspections, appraisals and perhaps addressing a few repair issues if found during the inspection.

Sellers must maintain the property in its "selling"condition just in case the contract falls through.  Yes, it is always a possibility.

Likewise, buyers expect the property to be delivered in the same condition as when contracted.  And that also includes clean.

Whether buying or selling a home the rule is the same... a deal is not a deal until the papers are signed, funds transferred and keys delivered.

Until then, you and your Realtor® should remain alert to potential issues.
