Some of what you will learn

Costs Involved in Selling your Home

During the home selling process there are numerous costs of which you should be aware both before and after the property sells.

Choosing a Realtor

The most important thing you can do is invest the time to interview and evaluate up to five Realtors. Not all Realtors are the same. Just because one Realtor may dominate your neighbourhood doesn’t mean they are the best Realtor to sell your home. The only way to know for sure is to interview several of them. Meet with as many as it takes until you feel the fit is just right.

Preparing to Sell your Home

Part of obtaining the best possible price for your home is making it attractive to the widest possible audience of potential buyers. Properties that show like they are out of the pages of a magazine tend to generate top dollar. Today’s consumers go crazy for turnkey properties, many want to be able to just move in and enjoy. We understand that few properties fulfill this description, however there are steps that can be taken to make your property irresistible. A great place to begin is by maintaining a neutral décor and a clean, uncluttered look.

What to Expect During Negotiations

Transactions can entail a considerable amount of negotiation between the initial offer presentation and the final sale.
