A Seamless Selling Experience
Your home is your most valuable asset. When it comes time to sell, you want to be sure you are working with a real estate professional who has the expertise needed to get you top dollar for your home efficiently and effectively. I will work with you to position your home on the market in a way that ensures your sales experience is as stress-free and profitable as possible.
Getting Ready to Sell
Before listing, home sellers should arm themselves with knowledge about their local markets — Port Elgin, Tobermory, Sauble Beach, and Southampton are all strong real estate markets, except each one is different and have their own seasonal fluctuations. One of the best things that you can do is look at comparable homes for sale by neighbourhood — “comps” in real estate lingo, that have sold recently.
Look for homes that have the same features as yours as in the number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, square footage, garage capacity, and amenities. I have this information on hand. Knowing what other SOLD Homes went for will give you a reasonable estimate of what to expect for your own home.
Before putting the sign on your lawn and advertising your home, there are a few key steps you can take to make your home more sellable for which we can coach you through.
1. Remove the clutter
Imagine what your home would look like if you removed half of your belongings. In order to make your home more appealing to buyers, it’s important to eliminate personalized items, as well as excess furniture and decorative features. Less is more. A minimal design with few distractions will help buyers see themselves in the space.
2. Patch and paint
Pride of ownership is a key selling feature, and you can demonstrate yours with simple fixes to leaky faucets, running toilets or squeaky doors. Adding a fresh coat of paint to the walls, using neutral colours, is also a good idea. It’s a relatively quick and cost-effective way to make your home feel bigger, brighter, and more welcoming.
3. Spruce up the curb appeal
The outside of your home is what potential buyers see first when they pull up to a viewing, and we know how important first impressions are. Make sure the grass is cut, the yard is landscaped and the exterior looks well-kept.
4. Stage your home
Studies show staging your home helps you sell faster and at a higher price point. Small changes can go a long way in making your home look Pinterest-worthy from every angle.
