Whether you are relocating for work, moving to an area with more options for your children’s education, or downsizing as you enter retirement, there will come a time when you are ready to sell your home.
As trusted Guelph real estate agents, we want to help you understand the importance of preparing both yourself and your home before you put your house up for sale.
The most important thing to consider when you make the decision to sell your home is who you will be working with throughout the selling process. Aside from deciding to sell your home, deciding on who you want to work with is the most important choice you will make because it can affect everything else!
The right Guelph real estate agent will help you price your home, market your home and sell your home.
Whether you choose to work with an expert or try to make a go of selling your home on your own, there are many factors that will need to be taken into consideration before you can accurately price your home.
You and your agent or realtor will need to conduct research on the local housing market to see what the homes in your area with similar characteristics to your home are selling for. This will not only help you set a realistic asking price right from the start but will also give you an idea as to how long most homes in your area and price range are taking to sell.
The process of selling will vary from home to home, but this relevant market data should give you a great starting point for your own process.
It is important to remember not to overprice your home when you first list it on the market, as this can drag out the process which could have a large impact if you have time limitations due to work or other scheduling obligations.
Once your house is “market ready” and you and your agent or realtor have conducted the necessary research and accurately priced your home, it will be time to list your house!
From the moment your agent lists your home for sale, you will be responsible for keeping your house clean at all times. If you and your agent have done a good job of pricing your home, you should be getting regular calls from other agents with potential buyers. You will often be given very short notice when buyers want to view your home, so you should make sure your home is ready to be shown at any time.
As experienced Guelph real estate agent, we can help you prep, price and sell your home with ease! We have been helping people on the move for years and we can’t wait to do the same for you!
