Selling a Home in Toronto can be a difficult and long process if not tackled correctly right from the outset. As a seasoned Realtor, I might have a biased opinion as to how it should be done. But to my credit my opinion stems from a long successful career in selling Real Estate.
When selling, it is vital that you choose the right Realtor to represent the sale, it is essential that the person you hire is not only competent but has a strategy and marketing plan that is tailor made for your situation and the home’s condition. My advice; interview at least 4-6 Realtors before signing anything. After all we are talking about one of the, if not the biggest investment in your portfolio, you owe it to yourself to make the right decision.
A key component to selling is price; I can’t stress enough the importance of pricing the property according to market conditions. If you choose to over price your home, the odds of selling it for top dollar decrease with each day it’s listed.
Prior to listing the home there are things that should be done in order to make the house presentable, such as clean, clean and clean some more, repair any defects that the home may have. These are just a few of the many things that need to be done. Home staging is a great way to really spruce things up! Home Staging is not for everyone as it can become quite costly, but it doesn’t hurt to have a designer come in and consult you. Another great trick is to invest in a complete home inspection, so the buyer does not need to order its own, which in turn will allow the buyer to act quicker and be more comfortable.
