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 a 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 unit.

Thinking about your home’s best features will help you highlight them by putting more effort into staging them. If you have a beautiful deck with a great view, for example, spend time cleaning up and staging the deck as the perfect leisure space. By making sure those features shine, you’ll be making your home irresistible.
The importance of staging a home can go beyond looks. When potential buyers have very positive first impressions of your home and can envision themselves in the best spaces of your home, they’ll see your home as more valuable. Highlighting your home’s best features can also increase the value.
Homes that have been staged have an increased chance of getting offers over the asking price than those that have not been staged. Agents from the National Association of Realtors found that staging your home could boost your offers by 5%. For me, it’s always worth investing in your home to net you more on the sale of your home.
As a Home Inspection Report details the physical condition of any freehold real estate being considered for purchase, a Status Certificate outlines essential written information about a condominium necessary for Buyers to understand in order to make an informed purchase decision.
What is a Status Certificate? A Status Certificate provides a detailed picture of the fiscal health and other pertinent information regarding a specific condominium and its corporation, as of a particular date.
When should a Status Certificate be obtained? Astute owners that are about to list a condominium are well advised to have a Status Certificate available during the marketing period for potential buyers to consider before they submit an offer. This will help to give Buyers’ more confidence to pay more and give firm offer(s).
