Common Seller Questions
Welcome to the Gwen Happy Homes Help Center. I’ve pulled together some of the most frequently asked "Seller" questions from my clients and compiled them all here.

The Help Center
When is a good time to sell?
Anytime is a good time to sell. The decision to sell depends on your personal goals.
How is the Real Estate market right now?
One of the most important indicators on market conditions is the average days on market. The average days on market can indicate to a seller how quickly homes are selling when initially listed on the MLS, (Multiple Listing Service).
We use a comparative market analysis, which is an in depth evaluation of recently sold comparable homes in your neighborhood.
What tool do you use to determine the value of my home?
What is your commission rate?
Commissions are negotiable. The average commission rate is between 5% - 6%. That being said, you get what you pay for. The same holds true when it comes to Real Estate.
How long does the listing agreement last?
Most of the questions related to the exclusive right to sell contracts are not able to be answered with a universal answer. The length of the listing agreement depends on the local market. In Southern California, the listing term is generally between 90 to 180 days.

Common Buyer Questions
The Help Center
Should I meet with the lender first?
It is strongly advised that you meet with your mortgage broker or lender to determine the price range of a home you can be prequalified for. The mortgage broker or lender will help you understand the basics of financing, down payment, county transfer fees, escrow fees and closing costs.
How many homes should I look at prior to making a decision to purchase?
This important question is often asked. The answer is that there is no specific number of homes that you should view prior to making a purchase. You make an offer when you feel happy about a home and when it meets your personal home buying needs.
How much should I offer on the home of my choice?
You are the only one who can determine the offer. It is important to consider competitive pricing in the neighborhood. Your competitive offer is very essential to stand out from other offers.
What is an earnest money deposit?
An earnest money deposit is basically good faith deposit to place a hold on the property. The purchase of this deposit is to show the seller that you are serious about purchasing the home. The deposit amount will be subtracted from the final figure that the buyer pays at the closing.
Should I request home inspections?
It is recommended that when you purchase a home that you can request some basic home inspections. The purchase of the home can be contingent on a satisfactory home inspection, pest inspection, chimney inspection, radon test and many other inspections. No two home are the same so it is important that you request a home inspection.
