Selling with FARE
WHY LIST WITH THE FARE GROUP?Selling your property can be a daunting experience. Few transactions in life are more personal or potentially complex.

By working with The FARE Group you’ll avoid the pitfalls, understand the process as it is happening, and therefore be free to focus on your future.

When necessary, we may offer protected language for inclusion in the contract of sale.

Manage the Closing We assist in coordinating the closing date, time and location with interested parties and conduct the final walk thru with the buyer immediately preceding the closing. Your FARE agent will convey any issues upon final inspection to all pertinent parties as well as assist in the smooth resolution of same, when possible.
