  5. Negotiating and Closing: When you receive offers, be prepared to negotiate. Maintain professionalism during the process, and consider hiring a real estate attorney or consultant to assist with negotiations and ensure you’re in compliance with all legal requirements. Once you’ve accepted an offer, handle the closing process, including coordinating with a title company, inspections, and paperwork.
