Getting ready to make a move? The sale process may throw you off your daily routine for a few weeks, but it’s usually part of a larger plan to get you into a great new home. The Calgary market continues to climb, and selling a home for a great price has never been easier. If you are considering making a move, here are a few important tips to remember for a successful sale:
Establish the right price.
Pricing your home strategically is one of the most important considerations in the sale process. So how do you decide on the right price? Educated buyers and lenders will determine market value based on comparable recent sales in the area. The sales in the last 6 months are particularly influential in determining how much someone will be willing to pay for your home. Pricing a home low may generate multiple offers, but you are taking the chance of selling for less than what your home is worth. Pricing too high could turn serious buyers away because they may not see the value in your home.
Make a great impression.
It only takes a moment to make a first impression, and your home should be presented looking its absolute best. Decluttering is essential to rid your space of distractions. A well-staged home will look great in pictures, which is essential for the listing’s online advertising. Buyers should be captivated by what they see online and feel compelled to book a showing to see what your home really looks like. Keep your place as clean as possible during the sale process. Of course, staying on top of everything requires some extra work and attention to detail, but it will be well worth it in the end.
Negotiate the deal.
Once your floors are swept and the sign is on the lawn, all you can do is wait patiently for the right buyer to come along. The Rod Forsythe Group will not rest until a SOD sign is put on your home.
