MY COMOX VALLEY HOME SELLERS GUIDE INCLUDES INFORMATION ON:
There’s no “right price” to ask for your house that can be categorically defined or identified. But depending on market conditions, the specifics of your house, your motivation for selling and a number of other factors, there is an art and science to understanding how to position the price to inspire others to compete or offer more.
REPAIRS AND UPGRADES THAT REALLY MATTER
It’s often true that homeowners learn to live with the wear and tear that comes naturally with life. When it’s time to show your home for sale, though, those dings and bruises can affect potential buyers’ perception of your home’s value. The difference between what should be fixed and what won’t affect valuation is worth noting and addressing.
HOW MUCH SHOULD YOU STAGE?
The rule of thumb in presenting homes for sale is “less is more”. It’s the difference between selling your home and selling your house. Depersonalization and de-cluttering enable potential buyers to picture their lives in your house, without the distraction of all your things.
PREPPING FOR SHOWINGS
With all the effort that goes into prepping and staging your home before it’s listed, it’s important to keep up appearances throughout the showing stage. It helps to have a good to-do list to check off before each viewing and to be able to work within a flexible schedule (there’s one here in our Seller’s Guide).
HEARING OFFERS AND NEGOTIATING
There’s a lot to be said for being calm and methodical, all of which is easier with the context of experience. The negotiating process includes a necessary back and forth, but there are ways to keep cool and to make sure you get the most out of the entire experience.
CLOSING AND MOVING
Signing a purchase agreement is not quite the end of the selling process. In fact, the purchase agreement will include a list of obligations and stipulations that you will now need to be on top of. Moving is never fun, but an orderly exit strategy will help make it a lot easier for you.
