Sell Your Home

Making the decision to sell can be a difficult one; whether you are upgrading to a larger home, downsizing, relocating or just looking for a change, I can help.  My client-focused approach ensures your best interests always come first. Contact me to learn more about my proven sales and marketing process and to help you decide if it’s the right time to sell your home.

Steps to selling

Once you have made the decision to sell your home, there are a few important things to do before we put up the For Sale sign.

Professional consultation

The relationship I build with my clients is extremely important to me. Starting off with a consultation gives us a chance to get to know each other, discuss the home selling process and any expectations. We would discuss:

  • The entire listing process (Infographic: The Home Selling Process)
  • Market trends and economic factors influencing homes in your area
  • Market comparables – what’s selling in your area, competing properties and their attributes
  • My targeted marketing approach; how I market your home as a unique offering
  • How I keep you well-informed on market activity and provide feedback about your home
  • And sign an agreement to list your home for sale

After the consultation, I will provide you an estimate of the current market value of your property. From there, we can begin preparing your home for sale.

Get your home ready to sell

Before professional photography or floor plan services are arranged, we want to make sure that your home is looking its best.

Take care of any necessary fixes/repairs
Make a list of small fixes you have been putting off, and take care of them. This includes things like leaky faucets, paint chips and wobbly door handles.

 

De-clutter and depersonalize your home
When a prospective buyer enters your home, you want them to be able to envision the place as their own.  Remove personal items such as photographs and collectables/souvenirs, and put excess furniture in storage. This way, the buyer can focus on the space and not your stuff. Talk to me about benefits of professionally staging your home.

 

Improve your curb appeal
The impression your home makes begins when the buyer arrives. Make sure to clear walkways, mow the lawn and pick up any fallen leaves or branches.  Ensure your front door opens and closes well and is free of coats, umbrellas or shoes. You want your entryway to feel spacious and welcoming. And of course, make sure your house number is visible.

List your home for sale

Once your home is sale ready, I will:

  • Develop a customized, targeted marketing plan for your home
  • Arrange professional photography and floor plan services
  • List your property on the MLS.ca (See my current listings)
  • Advertise online and in print (See examples of my quality marketing materials)
  • Share your listing with my professional network
  • Set up public showings: open house/by appointment
