    How to Prepare for the Fall Real Estate Market

    Real estate is sold 365 days a year; it’s the new norm!  Fall can be a great time to sell your home. Below are some of the best tips for selling a home during the fall.

    Analyze the Market & Price Your Home Right

    Analyze the current state of your local real estate market. Understanding the type of market your area is experiencing is important: Is your local market type a sellers’ market, a buyers’ market, or a balanced market. It’s important when it comes to pricing your home accordingly. If you don’t know ask your Real Estate Agent!

     

    Perform Applicable Inspections & Cleanings

    If you’re planning on selling your home in the fall, tackle the inspections and cleaning part prior to listing your home for sale.

     

    Decorate & Embrace the Fall

    The most exciting part about fall! If you decide to sell your home during the fall, there are many decorating tips, staging tips, and ways to embrace the fall season. Be tactful with your decorating and try to appeal to the masses!

     

    Clean Up the Exterior

    The least exciting part about fall…is raking leaves. Don’t neglect the exterior of your home. Tasks that should be completed when selling a home during the fall include:

    Raking leaves

    Removing loose sticks

    Weeding flower beds

    Trimming flowers, bushes, and shrubs

    Aerating the lawn

     

    Prepare Your Home for Showings

    When selling in the fall, ensure your home smells good. Popular ways to make your home smell warm and cozy while selling in the fall include:

    Brewing a fresh pot of pumpkin spice coffee

    Boiling cinnamon sticks

    Burning fall scented candles

     

    Selling a home in the fall is not for everyone, however, these tips can help expedite the sale of your home and maximize the sale price!

    Additional Costs To Consider When Buying A Home

    The purchase price of your home is only one of the costs you’ll encounter. Here are other possible costs you need to consider:

    • Mortgage loan insurance:
      If you are putting less than 20 per cent of the house value down, you’re going to need mortgage loan insurance. Depending on the lender, the premium can be added to mortgage payments. Note: as of January 1st, 2018, the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions Canada (OSFI) is setting a new minimum qualifying rate, or “stress test,” for uninsured mortgages (if you are putting more than 20 per cent of the house value down). The guideline, applying to all federally regulated financial institutions, now requires the minimum qualifying rate for uninsured mortgages to be the greater of the five-year benchmark rate published by the Bank of Canada or the contractual mortgage rate +2%.   
    • Appraisal fee: 
      Lenders typically loan a percentage of the home’s purchase price or the market appraisal of the property. Cost depends on the size and complexity of the assignment.
    • Land survey: 
      The lender may ask for a current survey or certificate of location before signing off on the loan. There can be a substantial cost for having a new survey done on the property.
    • Deposit:
      A deposit normally goes with the formal offer to purchase.
    • Insurance: 
      The lender will require proof of property insurance for the replacement value of the house and its contents from the day you take ownership.
    • Title insurance: 
      Provides coverage in case of problems with the property title among other things. The cost is relatively low, usually a few hundred dollars.
    • Application fee: 
      Some lenders will pass on the cost to process your application. These fees vary and some lenders will waive them entirely if you have other accounts with them.
    • Mortgage broker’s fee: 
      If you use a mortgage broker, a fee may be charged to arrange a mortgage on your behalf.
    • Home inspection fee: 
      An inspection protects the buyer by revealing any problems in the property that you’d want to know before you move in.
    • Legal fees: 
      You can save some of the legal fees usually charged by the lender if your lawyer draws up the mortgage. You’ll also pay for disbursements which are the costs involved in drawing up the title deed, conducting a title search, and preparing and registering the mortgage.
    • Land Transfer Tax: 
      Use the land transfer tax calculator accessible from the home page of this website to calculate both your Ontario and City of Toronto (if applicable) land transfer taxes. First time home buyers qualify for a maximum $4,000 provincial rebate and a maximum $4,475 City of Toronto rebate.
    • Harmonized Sales Tax: 
      Resale (used) homes are exempt from HST but it does apply to newly constructed homes and may qualify for a partial rebate depending on the sales price and if the home is going to be your primary place of residence.
    • Other costs: 
      These include moving costs, fees charged by utilities for service hook-ups, property tax and other adjustments (an adjustment takes place when the seller has already paid for something in advance and wants to be credited for the unused portion on the date the house becomes yours), and ongoing maintenance (condo fees, etc.), and utility costs.
