SELLING A HOME

Our life is full of changes! Marriage, divorce, children, career change, loss of a job, everything keeps evolving around us and we change with years. The house that seemed so perfect when we bought it, now seems to be too big, too small, too far, too old. This is when the big decision of selling our house arises. This decision is never taken lightly, but when it’s time – it’s time. So we start acting! There are many things that one should know before putting the house on the market to sell. How do we decide on the right price and the right time: these are the two most important questions. To find the answers, you need all the information about the real estate market in your area that you can get. And the best person to help you with this is your real estate agent!

1. To assist in getting as many qualified buyers as possible into your home until it is sold.
2. To communicate to you weekly the results of our activities.
3. To assist you in negotiating the highest dollar value…between you and the buyer.THE FOLLOWING ARE THE STEPS I TAKE TO GET A HOME SOLD:

1. Price your home competitively…to open the market vs. narrowing the market.
2. Suggest and advise as to any minor changes you may want to do in your property to make it more saleable.
3. Contact over the next 48 hours my buyer leads, and over next 7 days my center of influence and past clients for their referrals and prospective buyers.
4. Submit the listing of your home to MLS and centris.ca
5. Add more exposure through placing the listing of your home on RE/MAX Web site (the most visited Real Estate Web site), my personal Web Site and installing a sign in front of your home.
6. Install an information box with the description of your home directly on the sign to make sure passers-by have immediate access to it. (seasonal!)
