House Sale Tips
Pick the right Realtor
I can’t emphasize this enough, Nothing slows down the process like not being connected to the right person. Communication is key, as is trust. It’s a big decision and it needs to happen with the right person.
“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” – Warren Buffet
Know the numbers
Know what you can afford, chat with your financial planner, work with a mortgage specialist, run the budget, and always make sure you can go out for pizza on a Friday night.
If I can smell it, I can’t sell it
My favourite homes smell like clean laundry and fresh cookies, don’t yours? I’m a busy Mom with a big dog – so there are rainy days where my house smells exactly like that – but not when you’re ready to sell. Let’s make sure your house is in tip-top shape before we list it!
Clean, clean, clean
Clean your eavestroughs, your sheds, your storage room, your baseboards, etc. Clean it all, get the tube of caulking out and do all the things you wished you did before you decided to sell (TRUST ME – This is ALL OF US). Everyone loves a clean home – it helps it sell. Also no one deserves to see your leg hair in the shower – at least that’s what my husband tells me.
Oh Boy! Hot TOPIC! Find a realtor (Ok, me) that does the research on your price, and has the connections to get it sold. You want to ensure the pricing strategy will align with the current market to maximize your value.
Don’t worry, we’re here to help. We will guide you to make your home the best it can be.
I always discuss what my strategy is to market your home with you, however I always want you to be as involved, or uninvolved as you want to be.
Ask me any questions, and I will walk you through my plans thoroughly to ensure we are on the same page.
Thorough communication is always important to me.
