5 Tips For Selling Real Estate

Are you considering selling your real estate?

In Canada, there’s been a steady increase in the new housing price indexes from June to December 2020. With it being a seller’s market, there’s never been a better time to work with Toronto Realtors.

For sellers considering a relocation, check out this comprehensive guide for five tips when selling real estate.

1. Give Your Home a Competitive Price

If you’re considering selling real estate, remember to give your home a competitive price on the market. Be sure to consider the prices of the other residences around you.

Do online research and gather a basic understanding of home sales in your area from the last three to six months.

Consider square footage, renovations, and location in your pricing. Think about your location regarding community assets, such as:

  • Schools
  • Places of worship
  • Restaurants
  • Commercial areas
  • Parks
  • Recreation

Contact a local Realtor to discuss your property and the services that they provide!

Be sure to have a contingency plan before putting your residence on the market. It’s important to always have a plan in place. Pricing is not stationary; it’s an ongoing discussion and should adapt to the always-changing market conditions.

Don’t forget to prepare for additional closing costs! There may be a repair or addition you didn’t anticipate. Consider moving costs, staging fees, cleaning fees, realtor costs, and mortgage prepayment penalties.

Consider getting a home inspection prior to listing your home as an information guide to prevent any unwanted surprises.

2. Choose the Right Time of Year

Choosing the right time of year to put your home on the market can have a significant impact on the sale.

Historically, the spring market is the busiest for real estate and an ideal time for sellers to list their properties.

During this time, the holidays are over, which means people are less busy, and the weather encourages buyers to get out more. Remember to revamp the interior and exterior of your home, including:

  • Landscaping
  • Touching up paint
  • Decluttering
  • Deep cleaning

Consider consulting a professional real estate team in the Toronto area to help you find areas of your home that may need extra attention before it hits the market.

3. Don’t Forget Basic Home Repairs

When buyers look for properties they want it to be a stress- and anxiety-free process. To create this environment, it’s important that you, as the seller, focus on basic home repairs.

Before the home inspector comes through your house, do your own thorough check. Consider basic repairs, like:

  • Kitchen appliances
  • Cabinets
  • Sinks and faucets
  • Showers
  • Walls and ceilings
  • Flooring
  • Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system (HVAC)
  • Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Circuit breakers
  • Roofing
  • Foundation

Remember to address any leaks. Make sure all doors and cabinets open seamlessly. Focus on loose hinges, cracked surfaces, or broken handles.

A fresh coat of paint does wonders to increase the price of your home. Don’t neglect the floors. Replace chipped tiles and refinish damaged hardwood. If the carpet is worn, consider a deep-clean or even replacing it.

4. Stage Your Home to Sell

After making any necessary repairs and upgrades, it’s time to stage your home to sell. On the exterior of your home, power-wash your siding, driveway, and walkways to give it a brand new appearance.

Plant fresh flowers and greenery. Make sure your address numbers are legible and easy to find. Remember to wash the outside windows as well as the garage windows.

Choose a doormat that welcomes prospective buyers into your home. Inside, make sure your home is as clean as possible. Before a prospective homebuyer looks at your house, you should:

  • Vacuum
  • Scrub the floors
  • Wash the windows
  • Wipe down counters and appliances

Expect the buyer to open doors and cabinets. Organize your clothes and pantry to give it a finished, organized look. Avoid clutter at all costs. Consider renting an offsite storage space while you’re staging your home.

Think about rearranging your furniture to give your home the appearance of being open concept. Also, consider adding artwork that may be a conversation piece.

5. Hire a Realtor and List Your Home

Finally, list your home with a Realtor that you feel confident will bring in the best return on your investment. Choose a Realtor that you feel comfortable with and that provides the right services for you and your property.

Be communicative and have an open dialogue with your Realtor. If you like more than one, consider interviewing each candidate.

At the end of the day, it’s your decision, and you want to be comfortable with your choice.

Why Should You Deep Clean Your Home Prior To Sale?

deep clean

You never get a second chance to make a good impression, and first impressions are vital when selling a home. One of the best ways to make an excellent first impression when selling your home is by offering a spotless, impeccable house.

To offer a spotless home, you’ll need to deep clean the house before listing it. Cleaning your house from top to bottom provides many outstanding benefits when selling. Are you curious about these? 

If you’re wondering why you should deep clean your house before selling it, keep reading. This article explains why you should do this, its benefits, and how to handle the job. 

A Spotless House Makes for a Perfect First Impression

As mentioned, you get just one chance to make a good first impression. If you don’t deep clean your home, you’ll miss this opportunity. Missing out on making a good first impression can thwart your chances of selling your home quickly. 

When you initially decide to sell your home, you might want to start by finding the best Toronto real estate agent. An excellent agent can provide tips for selling your home quickly. One of the tips the agent will offer is to clean your home. 

When people start shopping for homes for sale or condos for sale Etobicoke, they might come across your listing. If they like what they see, they’ll schedule a viewing to see your house.

As potential home buyers arrive at these viewings, they’ll instantly like what they see or dislike it. The cleanliness of your house plays a significant role in what they think.

When they see a spotless home, it will give them positive feelings about your property. They’ll like it, and they may keep it in mind as they view other houses for sale. 

A Clean House Looks More Appealing and Less Personal

The second thing to understand is that a clean house looks more appealing to anyone that views a house. People tend to feel more comfortable when viewing spotless homes.

They might feel like the homes have fewer germs, and they might picture themselves living there. As you deep clean your house, Toronto realtors will suggest removing personal items from it. 

For example, the agent will tell you to pack up your family photos. The purpose is to depersonalize your home. Making your home look less personal allows people to envision themselves living there. 

Depersonalizing is just one aspect of deep cleaning, though. You’ll also need to work on all the other areas, including cleaning your windows, walls, and trim. The goal is to clean every square inch of your home before listing it. 

It Makes a House Look More Spacious 

Another key benefit of deep cleaning a home before selling it is to make it look more spacious. One primary goal to keep in mind when cleaning is to remove all the clutter you see. 

Removing clutter frees up space and creates more open space. A house with more open space looks more spacious than a home full of things. As you begin cleaning your house, start removing things. 

Try to get rid of things that you don’t need, and remove items that most people wouldn’t like. You should go through your entire home, removing all the clutter you see. 

Additionally, you might also want to spend some time on your closets. People who view your home will look inside every closet. As you deep clean, remove things from your closets, too.

Try to remove enough items that your closets are only half full. Once you take out enough things, arrange the items so that the closets look neat and tidy. This step will give the buyers a positive impression when it comes to the space your home offers.

You’ll Have Less Work to Do for Showings

Working through your home decluttering and cleaning provides a spotless, appealing home to those who view it. You might not realize, though, that going through this work also provides some significant advantages for you. 

The first is that you’ll have less work to do for showings. When your agent lists your home for sale, people will contact him or her to schedule viewings. Your agent must receive your approval before agreeing to them. 

If you deep clean your home before listing it, your home will be super easy to clean when you receive these showing requests. Instead of needing days to clean your home prior to a showing, you could agree to one in just a few hours. 

You’ll have less work to do to prepare for each viewing request if your home is already spotless. You’ll still have to do a few things, but you’ll have much less to do. As a result, you can offer showings with very little notice. 

Deep Cleaning Prepares You for Moving 

The second benefit that you can experience from deep cleaning is that it prepares you for moving. If you deep clean your house and declutter as you go, you can actually pack up a lot of your things before you sell your house.

Imagine if you get rid of everything you don’t want before you sell your house. The result is that you’ll have less to go through when you do sell it. 

Imagine having no clutter remaining in your home when you sell it. This, too, provides a way to have less to do to move out of the house. 

Deep cleaning your home now prepares you for moving. As a result, you’ll have less to do when you need to move, and you’ll probably feel less stress at that time. 

Deep Clean Like Never Before and Sell Faster 

Whether you normally deep clean your house or not, when selling, you’ll need to. In fact, before listing it, you should deep clean like never before. It can help you sell your home faster. 

After you deep clean your house, you’ll be ready to list it. At this point, contact us. We can help you sell your home faster!
