November is here...sell your home/have no fear!!

Selling your home doesn't have to be overwhelming

 

When some people think about selling their home, they imagine all the things they will have to do: paint the kitchen, clean closets, prepare for viewings, find another home, arrange financing, start packing, etc. It can all seem very overwhelming very quickly.

 

In fact, the long to-do list you imagine you’ll have to deal with may dissuade you from making a move!

 

It doesn't have to be that way.

 

There are many ways to make selling your home and buying another relatively simple and easy.

 

Sure, there will be some work to do. You may need to prepare your property so that it looks appealing to potential buyers – cleaning, decluttering, doing some repairs, etc. Of course, you will also need to view some properties for sale in order to find your next dream home.

 

But those activities may not be as time-consuming or difficult as you had imagined. In fact, you and your family might actually enjoy the experience – and see it as an adventure.

 

The trick is to work with the right REALTOR®, someone who can guide you through the process, show you the shortcuts, and generally make things easier for you.

 

It's a little like baking your first cake from scratch. The task seems daunting, unless you have a master baker by your side to guide you step-by-step through the process. Then it's a lot easier, and even fun!

 

That's what a good REALTOR® can do for you. Looking for one? Call today.

So, I"ve neglected to add some content for some time.....so here goes! 

 

What home buyers love to see:
Buyers are more likely to make an offer on your home if they see a lot of
things they love about it. So what do buyers love to see?
One of the main things they like to see is a lot of space. Of course, you can't
change the size of your rooms, but there is a lot you can do to make small
spaces in your home seem more spacious.
Buyers also love to see a clean and uncluttered home. Think of how inviting
a hotel room looks at first glance, with everything neat and organized. Of
course, your home isn't a hotel, but the more neat and attractive you can
make each room, the better.
One thing buyers don't love to see is potential maintenance issues. So as
much as possible, get things fixed or updated.
In fact, the more "finished" and "move in ready" your home looks, the more
likely a buyer is to make an offer.
Don't forget the surrounding neighbourhood either. A buyer may not take
the time to explore the area, so be sure to make a list of the most appealing
features. You might want to take a picture of the brand new playground just
down the street or print off a local map showing nearby shopping, theatre
and other points of interest.
It's not about creating a false impression. Rather, it's about making your
home look its best and drawing attention to its most enticing features.
