Selling Tips

Here are a few tips/ideas to help sell your home quicker:

  • Presentation matters. Give your house a thorough ceiling to floor cleaning; you may even want to hire a professional cleaning service to lend a hand. Decluttering and staging your home takes work but is well worth it in the end. A fresh coat of paint, inside and out, is almost mandatory as is a well-manicured yard. Your lawn is that all-important first impression to a prospective buyer.
  • Arrange to be elsewhere when your agent shows the property. This applies to your pets also.
  • If you are selling a condominium, obtain the covenants and restrictions as well as other pertinent documents (offering plan, prospectus, three years’ financials, co-op/condo guidelines, etc.) from the property manager.
  • Select an experienced real estate attorney you know and trust to represent your interests.
