Moving into a new house is a lot of work. It can take weeks, even months to get everything, from finalizing the sale to actually moving your stuff, organized and sorted. If you’re buying or selling a property, the last thing you want is for the process to drag on for a long time and most of the process is out of your hands.
However, there are some steps you can take to make the process more fast and efficient.
So, if you’re moving home soon then this blog post should be right up your street (excuse the pun). We will share some tips on how to speed up the process so that you can focus on more important things in life like getting yourself settled into your new home.
Make sure you are responding in a timely manner
One of the major issues that can often slow down a home move is buyers or sellers taking their time to respond to important communications.
To avoid any problems, always be up to date with the latest communications on your house move. Give real estate agents a time and place to reach you so they can give you copies of paperwork in person.
When you receive documents to fill out, get them done as soon as possible. If you don’t have the time to fill them out immediately, make sure that you give your realtor a date by which you will have them filled out and returned.
Don’t leave your paperwork to the last minute, as any mistakes that need to be rectified will push your sale back while you correct them.
Make sure you have your questions organized
When it comes to contacting your real estate agent, there is a right and wrong way to do things.
First of all, keep in close contact with your realtor. Responding to their questions timely and letting them know your questions or needs right away will save valuable time.
Second, have all your questions written down and ready to ask. That way, you won’t have to make multiple phone calls or send multiple texts and emails. When both you and your realtor are focused on your particular sale, you’ll each have better results when you can more fully discuss questions and strategies for buying, selling, renting, moving, etc.
Finally, remember to vet your realtor. When it comes to choosing a realtor, don’t be afraid to ask questions. The realtor will have a huge amount of responsibility because they’ll be taking care of your sale from start to finish. Good reviews can help determine if other clients have received the type of service you are looking for.
Questions you should ask any realtor:
- What should I expect from the process?
- How will I know when tasks are completed?
- How will you communicate with me?
- Are there any delays that might come up that you’re aware of?
While most of the details of a home sale are out of your hands, taking these basic steps can help you speed up the process. Of course, the most important step is finding a realtor you can trust.
