Brampton Realtors and Selling Your Home
Selling your home is one of the most significant business deals most people will ever make, and yet it’s hardly a business as usual transaction. After all, you’re selling a place with memories embedded in the walls – this is where you grew up, raised your children, and marked their height on the trim. If you’re looking to list your home, here are our top three tips to help sell your home faster and for top dollar.
Interview potential Realtors
Many people don’t know that they can interview Realtors. We recommend that you interview two or three Realtors and compare what they have to offer before you decided which one of many Brampton Realtors is the best fit for you and your family’s needs. Additionally, if they have not provided them, ask for and take the time to review testimonials about them and their team. Your prospective Realtors should have these references and accolades readily available for you.
Research the market
Your Realtor will take many facets into consideration to determine a list price for your home. Ensure you’re up-to-date on the following so you can confidently agree that your home is strategically priced: -Review prices of what’s currently listed on the market and make sure your home is positioned competitively. -Ask to see recent sales that are comparable to your property. Compare similar qualities –everything from square footage, location, style of the home to the quality of finishes and sold date should be similar. -Take note of what is happening in the market. If the market has increased, you’ll want to make sure your property isn’t undervalued. -Be sure to communicate to your Realtor any upgrades and renovations that you’ve made.
