When it comes to selling your home I’ve got you, every single step of the way. Here’s a general breakdown of the process and what you can expect.
GET IT READY
Make repairs and updates and give your home a thorough cleaning so it shows well.
SET THE PRICE
We will review comparable listings together and arrive at a price you feel comfortable with.
Staging your home may be necessary to get you the largest return. I’ll walk you through everything!
My photographer will make your home look its best!
I’ll market your home using photos and videos!
This is often the hardest part as your home has to remain presentable and in tip top shape every day.
I will negotiate on your behalf and review all offers with you.
Schedule the closing, hand over the keys, collect the cheque!
For maximum success, I provide maximum exposure to your property:
Vivid and eye-catching photos and videos get your home noticed and attract buyers who search online for your home. I’ll ensure we capture and highlight your home’s best features

Buyers want to imagine themselves in your home, which means the most neutral we can make your space look the better. Staged homes sell for 1-5% more; on a million dollar house – that’s $10,000-50,000 more money.

UNDERSTANDING MARKET CONDITIONS
A buyer’s market occurs when supply exceeds demand. Typically, sellers will drop their asking prices to gain an advantage in the market.
A seller’s market arises when demand exceeds supply. Since there are fewer homes available, sellers are at an advantage.
Supply and demand are about the same. Sellers usually accept reasonable offers, while homes generally sit on the market for an average or typical length of time.
Pricing your home right means taking a variety of things into consideration. Here are somethings we factor into determining a sale price for your home.
I’ll study past sales for homes in your area and areas similar to yours. Having a clear understanding of true market value is the first step in establishing your list price.
I’ll study active listings to see what homes we’ll be competing with. Buyers tend to compare your home to these homes.
I’ll put myself in the buyer’s shoes and ask what they would find most valuable in homes like yours. Updated kitchens? Renovated rooms? These all factor into the final price.
Pricing your home largely depends on what type of market we will be listing in. If it’s a buyer’s market you’ll be pricing lower, if it’s a seller’s market you’ll be pricing higher.
