Ask The Realtor®

Q:  During this busy spring market how do I ensure that my home stands out to buyers?

A:  Ottawa Real Estate Board statistics show that the best time of year to sell your home is right now.  The snow has been replaced with growing grass and budding leaves.   The spring season typically accounts for nearly 40% of home sales over the course of an average year.   This season has seen a growing inventory of homes for sale on the market.  Buyers have a larger selection of homes from which to choose, making it a very competitive market to enter as a seller.

That being said, it is important that your home is positioned to stand out.  As a seller you need to walk through your house in the shoes of a buyer.  Are the baseboards clean? Are spaces cluttered?  Is the air in the home fresh? Are your closets organized to show off the storage space? These are just some examples of the things homeowners may overlook.
