Steps to Selling
Here’s what you can expect at every step of the selling process…
First Thing’s First: Find a great agent!
Finding an agent with the perfect combination of knowledge, neighbourhood insight, and negotiation power is important, but that’s not all you should be looking for. Choose an agent you click with–you’ll be working with them closely, and everything will go much smoother when you’re a good personal match.
Preparing Your Home
De-Personalize Your Space
One of the first and easiest steps you should take in preparing your home for sale is to de-personalize. Pack away the family photos and personal décor for now so prospective buyers can better imagine the home as their own–and be sure to remove any favourite items so buyers don’t think they’re part of the deal.
De-Clutter & Clean
A clean house is an attractive house! So make yours shine from the inside out. Now’s the time to finally go through that cluttered closet you’ve been ignoring, wash the windows, donate unneeded items, and pack away everything you won’t need before you move.
Make Minor Improvements
You don’t need to be a handyman to make big-impact changes. Amp up your curb appeal with a freshly painted door and freshly landscaped lawn, and fix up any cracked tiles, leaky faucets, and burned-out lights.
Bring In The Pros!
For bigger time-consuming projects (like painting, roofing, replacing flooring, or upgrading appliances) it’s worth it to call in the professionals. And of course, we can connect you with a stager to advise throughout the process and really give your home that “Wow!” factor.
Determining Market Value
Understand the Market
Understanding the factors that affect your home’s market value will make it easier to understand your listing price. These factors include supply and demand, price, seasonal markets, mortgage rates, the property’s condition, and location.
Conduct a Comparative Market Analysis
Establishing your home’s market value has a lot to do with what other homes are selling for. With a CMA, we’ll be able to estimate the value of your home based on nearby comparable properties that are also for sale, homes that have recently sold, and similar homes that didn’t sell.
Determining Your Asking Price
With our newfound information and research, we’ll be able to accurately determine the strongest asking price for your home. A properly priced home means a faster sale, more qualified buyers, and more money in your pocket.
Marketing Your Home
We produce high-quality marketing materials that reach buyers and their agents in print, online, and in-person. At this stage, your home will be seen through beautiful feature sheets, on the MLS, and throughout the world through RE/MAX’s global exposure, reaching 100+ countries!
We’ll also be hosting public open houses and Realtor open houses so representatives can vet your home for their qualified buyers.
Offers & Closing
When an offer–or offers–comes in, we’ll sit down and review the documents with you, ensuring you understand any financing, conditions, and contingencies included. We’ll help you coordinate a home inspection if needed and guide you through the Seller Property Information Statement that discloses any material defects of the home that have been identified.
Accepting an Offer
The buyer will deliver their deposit cheque and their offer to the listing office within 24 hours of acceptance. If there are conditions that you need to meet, you must fulfill those conditions. Same goes for the buyer. After that, you’ll sign a Waiver to firm up the Agreement of Purchase and Sale.
Closing Day & Moving On
Before the end of closing day, we’ll ensure your lawyer and mortgage broker have all the documents they need and the keys are handed over to the buyer. Next, transfer your utilities, forward and change your mailing address where needed, and book a moving truck. Now, time to celebrate!
