Tips For Selling Your Home

Benefits to Proper Pricing with a real estate agent

  • Faster sale
    When your home sells faster, you save carrying costs, mortgage payments and other ownership costs.
  • Less inconvenience
    If you've sold a home before, you know the energy it takes to prepare for showings, keep the home clean, make child care arrangements and alter your lifestyle. Proper pricing reduces this.
  • Exposure to more prospects
    At market value, you open your home up to more people who can afford the price.
  • Increased salesperson response
    When salespeople are excited about a home and its price, they make special efforts to contact all their potential buyers.
  • Better response from advertising and sign calls
    Ad calls and sign calls to REALTORS® turn into showings when price is not a deterrent.


There are many ways you can set your property apart from the competition without making a substantial investment.

 

Landscaping
Begin with the landscaping. Mow and weed the lawn, and re-seed any thin areas. Ensure your shrubs are trimmed and healthy and that flower beds are turned with neatly trimmed edges.

 

Clean Exterior
Clean all windows and exterior trim. Check soffits and fascia, eaves troughs and shingles. Sweep, wash or power wash your driveway and sidewalks.

 

Clean the corners
Check the back yard. Recycle those bottles, old lumber, dead branches and flower pots. Rent a heavy duty weed whacker and clean up the overgrown fence or lot boundary lines. Clean up the composting area.

 

Remove Clutter
Moving inside, your most important job is to remove all clutter. Even though your family may be growing out of your home, a potential buyer wants to feel that the house has lots of space and ample storage. Work from room to room, packing unnecessary items and storing them neatly to eliminate the overstuffed look. Don't forget the basement. If a room looks overcrowded with furniture, remove some of it and store it out of the way. Spacious rooms and abundant storage space are high on any buyer's list of attractive features. Less really is more!

 

And again Remove Clutter
You can apply the same idea to every room and closet, by clearing out or organizing everything until you have created a look of space and order.

 

Clean Interior

When you have completed this task in every room of the house, begin at the top again, cleaning and polishing everything. If necessary, steam-clean the broadloom. Also look for chipped corners and paintwork that needs touch-up.


Pat yourself on the back "job well done"
When you have finished the entire house, get ready for the rush of potential buyers. On the other hand, you may be so pleased with your labours, you may want to reconsider your decision to sell. Either way, the job is well worth the effort.
