How I Help You Sell a Home
Helping find a buyer for your home is only one facet of a real estate professional’s job. There are many more aspects including explaining the basic real estate practices and principles and all the related paperwork, Performing a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) to help determine your home’s value, helping to prepare your home for sale, listing your home, marketing your home, keeping you informed throughout the process. When the sale begins, it’s important to work with someone who will assist you with the paperwork, negotiate on your behalf, make sure deadlines are met, and work with the escrow company.

Selling a property in California is very different and much more complex than any other State. This obligates the Seller, their Real Estate Company and Agent to much liability and compliance with many State Laws. California is pro Buyer, thus making California the most litigious real property State in our union. In addition, Counties such as Los Angeles and many Cities within the State of California, have their own real estate sale / transferring requirements and laws. If these are not met, liability of fines, lawsuits and even imprisonment can occur.
At RealtyONEGroup, we comply and meet all State, County and City real estate transferring paperwork, contracts, escrow, title, property zone, disclosures and home warrantee requirements and laws on your behalf. Here are some of the laws and basic statutory requirements we meet: The California Transfer Disclosure Statement, Home Owners Association Transfer and Disclosure, Earthquake Glass, Water Heater, Gas Mater Shut-Off, Water Conservation and Carbon Monoxide, Retrofitting Compliances, the Natural Hazard Zones and Disclosure Report, Toxic Mold, Mining Operations, Military Ordinance, Megan’s Law, Airport Influence/Airport Proximity, Lead based Paint and Termite Report.
