"Having a deep pool of contacts and knowing how to build a market for your home will ensure the most bites...ask me how! In order to present things well, it all starts with photo's - ideally prior to our launch."
 

A house that "sparkles" on the surface will sell faster than its shabby neighbour, even though both are structurally well-maintained. From experience, we also know that a "well-polished" home appeals to more buyers and will often sell faster and for a higher price.

Selling Your Property - Let's Make The Most Of It!

"Integrity in the selling process starts with having even the smallest details covered"

Being able to provide prospective buyers with the nuts and bolts can help build their interest and increase their buying comfort. Some of this information requires discussion so it is good to get a head start. Answer what you can and submit the form, we can go over anything further later.
While preparing to sell there are questions that need to be asked to either smooth the process for you or help build that comfort for prospective buyers. To assist, I have made this quick check list. If you could please answer what you can and provide a brief comment as appropriate, making note of those things that you will need to determine at a later date. A little time spent now helps in facilitating a less stressful and more successful sale. As much as I am selling your home...I am selling the neighborhood, neighbors & lifestyle - all the reasons that your home should be considered by a buyer and why it might be the best fit. If you are not sure about any of these questions, don't worry, we'll use this as a guide in our preparations.

TIP #1:

When you are looking at purchasing a new place, you're really looking for a home. Buyers do the same thing. When they see your family photos, Fido’s dish, your child's art work on the fridge or the couch you bought in college, it makes it harder for them to see themselves living there. Remember one of the golden rules for getting your place ready...less is more!

TIP #2:

Building a market is crucial to taking full advantage of today's activity and getting the maximum number of bites. In order to do things right it all starts with good photographs, and having everything ready out of the gate - ideally two weeks prior to our launch. I want to take the stress out of selling by assuring you that all the bases are covered. History does repeat itself - see what my clients say about working with me.

For showings we'll need to know your code for access, or you can ask your security company to register an additional one if your system allows it.
Now is a good time to dig them out and set them aside.
As much as you get only one chance to to make a first impression, you only get one chance to be a "New Listing" so let me show you how to make the most of it! The open house (if appropriate in a predetermined marketing plan) can be a useful tool in creating interest and minimizing disruptions for you.
Is there anything attached or fixed that would NOT be included in a sale? For example a fixed mirror, shelving unit, attached flat screen or that special chandelier. Is there anything you'd consider leaving or want to leave that is separate from the property - flower pots, BBQ, etc., if the price is right and the buyer is interested?
Privacy? Inconvenience? Timing for completion? Marketing? The move itself? Whatever your worries are, let me know so we can address them.
Preparing responses for objections is important to handling them well. And remember a negative factor for you may be a positive feature for the right prospective buyer.

Any concerns or anything I should be made aware of when showing your home? Pets, lights, lock-up procedure, etc.
If you don't, consider having your property scanned in advance as most buyers today will insist on confirmation regarding underground storage tanks. I do have a list of companies that will scan the property just ask me and I can email them over.
Completion (the day money & title exchange) is usually a day or two in advance of Possession (the day/time the buyer gets to move in).
If self managed, we'll need contact info for ordering documents. It is also helpful to have a name and email or # for someone on council willing to answer questions on the complex.
This is a question that your strata might be able to answer for you if you don't know yourself.
Pipes, roof, elevator, interior updates, etc.
This question a buyer or buyer's agent will ask, so it is helpful to be prepared in advance.
This information if available via strata bylaws, so if you don't know, don't worry, we'll find out together! Pet friendly buildings are sometimes in higher demand so it is something we'll want to know in marketing.
These documents will be required by a buyer and so it is important to have them right away. Some strata properties have info web sites where you can download these documents - does yours and are you able to share access?
These two factors can help determine affordability for potential buyers.
