Time to Sell

There are many reasons that people sell their homes: to move forward, to liquidate, a growing family, to start fresh... The first step is to know your reasons. Understanding the why will make the process easier.

I have all the resources and knowledge needed to sell your home and can provide every service needed. I can provide contractors, handymen, landscapers, cleaners, stagers, photographers, educated marketing recommendations and advice.

 

How to price your home:

This is an incredibly competitive market. We want to attract the right purchasing group by pricing your home properly. Never over price; never under price. I will research the market, prepare a comparative market analysis of homes in similar price ranges and locations, review the houses that have recently sold in your area and together we will make an informed decision as to the most competitive price for your home. By pricing your property at fair market value you will attract more serious buyers and increase the chances of a speedy sale.

 

Preparing your home for market:

We will polish until it sparkles!
It is imperative to remove the rose colored glasses and to look at your house with the same level of critique that a potential buyer would .... or your mother-in-law!

Preparing a property for market is not something to be undertaken lightly. Buyers are a critical and discerning bunch. Short-term measures that can be taken to create theWOW factor such as staging, de-cluttering the décor and general grooming can make all the difference.

It is vital that we show the property in the best light; from the front to the back we must make the right impression. Keeping the home neutral and in classic taste will make it more saleable.

In this competitive market we must gain every advantage. The market is saturated by amazing properties so we must position your home to be a cut above the competition. The better the property looks, the more interest there will be.

I and my team of experts will be with you every step of the way to make sure that your house shows at its full potential.

 

Costs:

It is very important to remember that there are costs associated with selling your home.

  • Legal/notary fees for the execution of documents and costs associated with the completion of sale.
  • Real estate commissions as agreed to with your realtor, plus GST.
  • Any prepayment penalties with the mortgager if applicable.
  • Home improvement expenses.
  • Moving expenses.

I am an expert in the process of selling homes. I understand the market, and will negotiate the best price for you.
80% of real estate sales happen online first. I have access to the most cutting edge technology in online advertising and social media to expand and increase awareness of your property. I will respond immediately and personally to each and every prospective buyer. Your home will also be displayed on my website and Facebook page.

Once your home is listed, it will be placed on the Greater Vancouver Real Estate Board’s MLS System, allowing realtor’s immediate online access to your property details.

Through my personal home search your listing will be sent to prospective Vancouver buyers in my database. I will continue all of these measures for the duration that your home is on the market.
I and my team will guide you through every step of cleaning, staging, repairing, decorating and landscaping; this is an integral part of adding value to the sale. I have the experience, the resources and the commitment to get your house sold!
