Ask The Realtor®

Q:  You have decided to sell your home.  What are steps to selling your home?

A:  First you need to select a Realtor® that is knowledgeable of your neighbourhood, who comes with references from previous clients and who can provide you with advice on the best sales strategy for your home.

Most home buyers want to buy a home that has been well maintained, newer appliances, updated plumbing, electrical and heating, modern conveniences and is ready to occupy.   The first step in putting your home in market-ready condition is to correct any major deficiencies that would impair your ability to sell your home, such as repairs to the foundation, roof, furnace, etc.

Second, make any minor improvements that would help you maximize your sale price.  Simple staging tips often include minor landscaping, painting and de-cluttering of furniture that can make your home much more attractive to potential buyers.
