Choosing the right REALTOR®
The Realtor who helped you buy your current home is a good place to start. They already know your home and they know you. Alternatively, look for names on “For Sale” signs in your neighbourhood or ask friends and family. Interview two or three candidates and choose the one you like best.
Getting your home ready to sell
An attractive, well-kept home has a better chance of selling faster. Keep in mind that cluttered rooms make them look much smaller than their true size – try to create a feeling of spaciousness.
Minor updates, like improved lighting, can add value to your home . Think about how to highlight and improve your home’s best features.
Deciding when to sell and setting the right price
In real estate, timing influences what your home will sell for. How quickly you need to sell, whether it’s a buyers’ or sellers’ market, and seasonality all play a role in your home’s final selling price. Stay on top of market conditions to better understand today's real estate prices. For the most detailed knowledge, you’ll want to consult your Realtor.
Add specialists to your team
It’s essential to have a notary public or a lawyer handle the various documents that change hands and ensure your best interests are always protected. If you’re looking for professionals, your Realtor likely has a collection of contacts they can recommend.
