Selling Your Home in Tulsa, Oklahoma - Going to the Closing Table: Saying Goodbye

Selling Your Home in Tulsa, Oklahoma - Going to the Closing Table: Saying Goodbye

We’ve been through a lot together by now. We arm-wrestled over price, and we painted your favorite purple room a neutral color after two Buyers said they didn’t like it. You let the home stager cart away your favorite recliner, and you made your beds every morning.Congratulations - we're closed!

We agreed to pay some of the Buyer’s closing costs and in turn, they cut us some slack when we found wood rot that they decided they could fix later. We made necessary repairs and the Buyer’s financing is solid. No blemishes were found on your title and the attorneys gave us the green light to head to the closing table.

So, now it’s time to say goodbye to the home you raised your children in. As you pack up your belongings and schedule your utilities to be turned on in your new home, you are a bit sad to leave this home with so many memories.

You made my job so much easier because you were realistic about the price and what the market would bring. You focused on seeing your home as a commodity for the short time it was on the market and set your emotions aside.

You did all that I asked you to do to prepare your home for market and you invested in home staging in trade for a higher yield and fewer days on market. You left your home at a moment’s notice when a cooperating Realtor wished to show it to her Buyers and you compromised on a few things when negotiating your offer.

I’m proud of you, and am going to miss the produce from your garden that I always seemed to leave with. I’ll bring you a gift at closing, because I know you personally by now and know just what you will enjoy.Home Photos

I’ll also bring you a CD-ROM of all the photos I took of your home – not the professional photos taken after painting and staging, but the photos I took before your favorite recliner was hauled off and before the purple room was painted beige. And, we’ll pop some champagne to celebrate a job well done together.

Selling Your Home in Tulsa, Oklahoma - Going to the Closing Table: Saying Goodbye

Following the steps to sell your home is really hard work and requires much patience and compromise – but it’s your ability to work with your Realtor as a team that is truly “priceless.”

I hope that you were pleased with my guidance and prompt communication throughout the selling process. As you and I say goodbye for now, I hope that you will write a heart-felt testimonial for me, and I ask that you refer your friends and family to me.

Tell them about my great listing services, and I’ll sell their home in Tulsa, Oklahoma!
