Tips for Preparing to Sell Your Home
Staging, decluttering, cleaning and repairing is always recommended before selling your home. By taking these steps it will help attract the best offer and maybe even attract multiple offers.
In a recent survey by the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA), Ontario Real Estate Professionals overwhelmingly agreed with the following advice to home sellers:
Be upfront about any issues that might potentially affect the sale of your home (81% of Ontario Real Estate Professionals 'strongly agree').
When choosing the list price of your home please try to be as objective as possible (80% of Ontario Real Estate Professionals 'strongly agree').
Take the time to prepare and stage your home to help ensure it is very attractive to prospective buyers (75% 'strongly agree').
Have an idea of what you are looking for and where you would like to purchase your next home before listing your current one (53% 'strongly agree').
“Selling your home requires teamwork and a spirit of cooperation,” says Costa Poulopoulos, the president of OREA. “Your Realtor is a valuable member of the team, and your support will ensure that his or her contributions result in a successful sale.”
