Tip #3 – Think about the Timing. Spring is historically the busiest time in real estate, but the choice to list your home shouldn’t necessarily be a seasonal one. The most important question is what kind of market are we in? Is it a buyers market with tons of inventory and a lowered demand, or a Sellers market with few available houses and lots of buyers in competition to buy them? If the market conditions are in your favour as a seller, take advantage because in a seller’s market, you’re most likely to sell your house quickly and for top dollar.
Tip #2 – Price Your House Correctly. The best indicator of the value of your property is not what you paid for it but what the current comparables dictate. By looking at recent sold properties in your area you will get a clear idea of the current market value of your home. All too often we see properties hit the market that are priced too high that end up sitting and never selling. You as a seller will ultimately decide how your home is priced, but it’s important to get advice from a licensed Realtor to really be able to come up with a strategic price point that will ensure you’re getting the most value out of the sale of your home in the least amount of time. Which leads me to tip #1….
Tip #1 – Find an agent that knows how to market and sell your home. This doesn’t mean someone who takes pictures of your house with their iPhone! This means professional photography + video, floorplans, professional staging whether that be virtual or otherwise, website syndication, targeted advertising, agent to agent marketing, open houses – you get the point! You need an agent who makes it their goal to sell your house and does a top notch job of it!
