The ultimate goal is to make the process of selling your home as smooth and seamless as possible. Working together, we will determine the best possible price to sell your home in the least amount of time and inconvenience to you. With our combined digitally marketing & public exposure, our goal is to sell your home at Market Value or higher on offer night. We are here to educate you on the market, selling strategies and how to navigate an offer on your property, we are always here every step of the way. Even after we sell your home, we are dedicated to making sure your move, your closing and your transition into your new home is a pleasant and exciting experience. Our time together isn’t only a few weeks, we will spend many months emailing, having in person meetings and phone calls. We want to get to know you, understand your needs and make sure we make all of your real estate needs a reality while creating a long lasting relationship. Think of us as your Real Estate Partners.
In order to be completely prepared for the launch of the listing, and to limit the stress during the live listing period, it is best we do as much as we can ahead of time to ensure the listing compels the most amount of buyers from the get go. We will work together to put together a proposed timeline to show you when we would have to get started in order to go live on your desired date. This will include dates where I would arrange for a staging consult, the cleaner to come in, a handyman for any repairs, staging day, photographer, videographer, etc. See below as an example.
Once we have established a timeline we will sign the paperwork and get started.
This will help kickstart all the other pieces of preparation. Should you need any vendors surrounding packing, storage, movers etc. We have a database of service people we would be happy to recommend.
To make this the most seamless selling experience while providing you with the highest level of service possible.
Properly pricing your property has a major impact on the level in interest you will generate and ultimately the sales price you will achieve for your listing. The sales of comparable listings is the best measure of value and helps to identify a fair market value range. Properties being introduced to the market are best placed in the right pricing position relative to recent comparable sales.
In today’s market, the current competition is as important, if not more important as the most recent comparable sales. Buyers will be viewing and comparing competing properties to your home. They will make offers based on which one they feel has the most to offer them and provides the best value. We will be continuously monitoring sales that occur both before and during the listing period for your property.
There are certain factors that will attract your ideal Buyer. Things like location, schools, amenities, finishes and more.
Primary Target Market: Young professionals, young family, first-time homebuyers.
Secondary Target Market: Investor, foreign investor.
We have invested in a system called HoodQ which provides any buyers or agents that are interested in your home with any and all neighbourhood information including schools (with ratings), parks and amenities, transit and emergency services for your address. The link below will show the report for your address.
We’re all guilty of judging a book by its cover.
When we shop online, we typically opt for the nicely photographed products because we inherently trust those listings more. When we shop in-store, we tend to choose items with neater, more attractive labelling.
Understanding your home’s best features will help you determine the best ways to highlight them through staging. If you have a beautiful deck, for example, it’s worth cleaning it up and showcasing it as the perfect leisure space for potential buyers. This will help your home shine and make it more irresistible on the market.
The importance of staging a home goes beyond looks – it could also help increase your property value. When potential buyers have strong, positive first impressions of your home and can envision themselves living in it, they’ll recognize it as highly valuable and worth their investment.
Staged homes have a higher chance of getting above-asking offers than those that have not been staged. In fact, agents from the National Association of Realtors found that staging your home could boost your offers by up to 5%. Staging is one of the ways we invest in your home so we can earn you higher profits on your sale and leave you walking away more than happy!
