"I like and will stay with the Milton office in the future. They all went over and beyond to help me. The help and guidance from Patty was outstanding!!!"

It was very low stress working with Rob, because he was not aggressive, trying to offer new properties daily. Rob understood our needs, was respectful of them, and allowed us to move through the process at our pace.

What a wonderful experience I had. Laura walked me through every step with easy understanding. Dealing with my Uncle's estate was hard enough and he and his team put me at ease. We had regular phone conversations and e-mails explaining the process. And living in NY and not having to come back to VT for the closing was handled exceptionally. Thanks Laura and your entire team for an awesome job. 

"Lori was very professional and has terrific communication skills.  I would highly recommend Lori.  I can't say enough about Lori as every aspect of the sales process was excellent."

Kara was very helpful and understanding with my needs. Kara always kept me informed no matter how small the details. I would definitely work with her again and would recommend her to everyone.   

 Danelle was great, she stayed on top of all of the many complications that came up in our closing . She stayed in touch and jumped on every issue, often taking on more than was necessary to make us feel comfortable moving forward.

My husband and I tried selling our home on our own, showed it a lot but no buyers. It turns out we wouldn't had been able to do it without Sonia Krajicek because of the challenges we had with prime lenders, permits, counter offers and other obstacles. I'm sure Sonia will not forget.

My home buying process started last year. The realtor I was using was unavailable to show me a home I wanted to look at. Century 21 was the listing company on the house, and Armand came over to show it to

Great person who also becomes your friend.   

Always accessible and understanding of my needs. I was on the low end of the $ catagory and he worked for more than a year with me.  

I read online reviews about Lisa Meyer and chose to go with her based on so many positive responses. We have dealt with realtors before and have been very very disappointed. They have all been interested in closing the deal and did [...]

Selling Basics

Step 1: Creating a Marketing Plan

Create a marketing plan for your home that will help distinguish it in your local marketplace and attract buyers to your property. This may include advertising in the newspaper, posting your listing on the Internet, holding an open house and more. CENTURY 21 Jack Associates sales professionals often use a customized marketing system to create a personalized selling program for clients.Its purpose is to sell a home at the best price possible in the shortest amount of time.

Step 2: Setting the Price

A key part of the marketing plan is setting the list price. If a home is priced to low, it may cost you money. If a home is priced too high, potential buyers may be scared away. To determine the best asking price review the cost of recently sold homes, evaluate the competition and study marketplace trends. CENTURY 21 Jack Associate Agents are trained to use this information to help you reach the right asking price. It is also helpful to discuss other terms and conditions, such as timing and items that can be included with the sale of the home. Both of these can make your home more attractive to potential buyers.

Step 3: Showtime

Now it's time to get your home ready for the spotlight. Start with a good cleaning, then eliminate any clutter, add a fresh coat of paint and tidy up the yard. Talk to your real estate professional about other tips that can help boost a home's curb appeal and impress potential buyers once they're in the door. One way to make a home more attractive is to purchase a Home Protection Plan. This insurance protects you, the seller, from paying repair or replacement costs of major items during the listing period. It also protects the buyer during their first year of homeownership.

In addition, make sure you are aware of all the federal, state, and local disclosure laws. This information can be obtained by the specific local and federal government agencies or from your local CENTURY 21 Jack Associates office.

Step 4: Protecting Yourself

In some cases, a home sale can also be an invitation for danger. Here are some things you can do to make the process safer.

  • Ask for identification.
  • Ask for pre-approval letters.
  • Lock up and hide collectibles and valuables.
  • Remember "For Sale" signs bring in buyers. Do not allow your children to open doors to strangers.
  • If you have pets, make sure they are controlled.
  • Remove any dangerous items.
  • Talk to your realtor about additional safety tips to help protect you and your family.

Step 5: Making the Deal

A buyer has made an offer - now it is time to negotiate. Rely on your real estate professional to guide you through this process. He or she will help you arrive at an acceptable price, terms and conditions. Once you have accepted an offer, help keep the deal together by meeting deadlines and criteria, including home inspections, appropriate buyer visits, scheduled deposits and other steps. In fact, during this period there may be a renegotiation of the accepted offer price depending on the outcomes of these visits. As the closing nears, you may also need to perform repairs or do additional work to the house as agreed upon in your contract.

In addition, you will need to have the house "broom clean" prior to the closing so that the buyer can complete a final walk through. When you finally arrive at the closing table, come prepared with the appropriate certificates and approvals as required by your town, county and state. Ask the appropriate agency or get a list of what you need from your local CENTURY 21 Jack Associates office. Once the money has exchanged hands and all the papers signed it's time to hand over the keys and concentrate on your next big project - getting YOUR new home in order.
