SELLING YOUR HOME WHAT TO EXPECT:
What We All Hope For
Each homeowner has the same hopes when they put their house on the market: that it will sell fast, that it will sell at or above the listing price, and that it’ll be a smooth process.
To sell your home quickly, smoothly, and at the highest price, you need to find the right partner in selling your home.
Let Me Be Your Partner
From staging to knowing the local market trends, I will work relentlessly to sell your home. As your partner, I want to help you understand where I’ll be listing your home, how I’ll be promoting it, and any other questions you have along the way.
I’m a firm believer that between partners, honesty is the best policy, so tell me about any problems or concerns you have with your home and I’ll be honest about what you can realistically expect from the selling process. My goal is to create a highly-personalized relationship where you and your home have my undivided attention.
Have a Local Guru Working for You
I’ve lived in Oakville, Burlington and Toronto for 7 years, so I know the ins and outs of those cities. Knowing about the local competition down to the neighborhood helps me craft better sales messaging for your home.
But First, Let’s Meet
Before we get started on selling your home, I’ll come by at your convenience to get to know you, assess your house, give you my estimate for what your home might sell for, and answer your questions.
This part of the process is the most important to me. I want you to get the chance to know me to ensure we can work as partners to sell your home for the best price. I’ll explain how I plan to sell your home, local competition, and any initial ideas of how to stage your home.
THE SELLING PROCESS:
Setting Your Home’s Price
Setting the price for your home can be stressful – you obviously want the highest price you can get but you don’t want it set so high no one will be attracted to it.
I know who the likely qualified buyers are for your home, so I know how to set a price that will pique their interest without leaving thousands of dollars on the table. This, plus understanding what the desirable features of your home are, help me develop a winning pitch for the prospective buyers, private buyers and the MLS listing.
As I estimate your home’s value, I’ll walk you through each feature, room and item to help you understand which features of your home add value and will be attractive to customers.
Marketing Your Home
There are plenty of real estate agents out there who will simply hammer a “For Sale” sign out front of your home and post a listing on an MLS and call it a day.
That’s not how I work.
When we work together, know you’re getting an agent who will work relentlessly to sell your home to the best buyer possible.
I know that presentation is everything. When viewing something to purchase online, whether it’s a pair of shoes or a house, people expect several high-quality photos showing the product at all angles.
These photos will be your house’s first impression to many buyers, so I’ll ensure they’re clean, clear, and showcase your home in the best possible way. Paired with an irresistible description of your property, your listing will get tons of attention once it hits the market.
After crafting a compelling listing for your house, my goal is to get it in front of as many people as I can. This includes posting it on MLS, hundreds of other agent sites, promoting the listing on social media, placing advertisements online and in print publications, spreading the word among buyers I’m working with, and working with other real estate agents in the Oakville and Greater Toronto Area.
