Why You Should Consider Goldstone Realty?
Keeping Clients Informed
Goldstone Realty believes that communication is the key to a successful relationship with our clients. We provide our clients with real time updates, so they will always know what is always taking place with their home. Our team is dedicated to make the sale of our client’s home an amazing experience.
First, it’s important to know that you are hiring a skilled negotiator. Negotiation is a huge step to getting your home sold. It’s important we plan and consider all facts to successfully get you where you want to go.
Drafting contracts can be confusing and detail oriented. That’s why we take the time to do them for you. We will discuss the different aspects of contracts before we write them up. With new regulations and legalese, we will make sure that what’s explained is clear and simple.
More often than not, there is a negotiation process when selling a home. Just as we want to get the best outcome, so do buyers. It’s our job to negotiate the contract on your behalf. I will not get in the way of the transaction. Equally, We will make sure the ball does not drop in the process. As with everything, as new information is made available, we will pass it along to you.

Having someone who is highly skilled is imperative in selecting an agent. We are trained on specific negotiating tactics to ensure you are taken care of during this process. Our job is to know how to work through all the emotions and distractions, and to navigate you to your end goal.
At this point of the selling process, the buyer’s lender will order an appraisal. The appraisal is another contingency for a buyer securing a mortgage. If your home doesn’t appraise, the buyer may cancel the contract. Potentially, this is another time for negotiations to take place. Appraisals are something to keep in mind when pricing your home. We at Goldstone Realty take the appraisal very seriously. We treat it as a showing and will instruct you to prepare your home accordingly. We will let you know of the results as soon as we hear back. Often we will not know the appraisal value, but rather if the home appraised at the expected value. That information is the property of the buyer.
