Having an Experienced Realtor is Crucial When Selling Your Out of State Home

Experience Matters | Selling Your Home When You’re Out of State

The first factor to look for anytime you are selecting your real estate agent is experience. This means they have a track record of success in the local market and the ability to translate market knowledge into reasonable expectations. Meaning, how much your home will sell for, how to get you the maximum equity, and how long it will take to close.

This high level of experience is even more important when you are out of state and need to sell your home.

Make sure the agent you choose has helped other people sell from out of state. You don’t want to be the test subject!

Many times, there is no reason to make a trip back to sell your home. The SellPDX team and I serve the Portland Oregon market and are experts in out of state closings.

If you are signing in another state we will help set up either a mobile notary or an appointment with a sister title and escrow company in your state.

If you are signing out of country we will need to plan to have you sign either at a US Consulate or with an English language notary, or if necessary, a non-English notary that is translated to English. This can take time to arrange so we start this early on in process of selling your home.

Depending on where you live, the transfer of funds might also take a little extra work. In the US and many countries you can simply wire funds from escrow at closing. For some countries there are restrictions on how much money can come and go over a certain time period. We check with title and escrow and make sure we know where you plan to send funds so we can help make this a smooth process.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Make sure you view all 3 of our videos about “How to Sell Your Home from Out of State.”

I’ll explain how the SellPDX team partners with vendors and your local family or friends to get your property ready for market and ensure a simple sales process to a successful closing.
