Considering Listing Your Calgary Home? Here are 8 things to help you

1)    Firstly study a marketing plan with us and assess whether it is a good time to sell. You will need to consider your finances, and factor in expenses like moving costs.

2)    The second thing to do is to make sure that your property is ‘sale-ready’. January and February are good months to start, to be ready for early spring.

3)    Carry out the necessary improvements and upgrades through renovating or remodelling, so as to create a home that is free of defects and has the features to hold its own against the competition.

4)    Items left unfixed will for sure show up in a home inspection, and this can delay the sale or even cause it to fall through.

5)    Clear all the clutter and sell or give to Goodwill any extra furniture to free up the space and make your home look more open and spacious. Your home must be ready for “Showtime” don’t leave it till last minute.

6)    It is well worth your time and effort to give your home a thorough clean, we would even suggest hiring the services of professional cleaners.

7)    We consider “Mental Prep” to be the most important step to take before listing your home. Becoming emotionally detached from your home is essential for a successful sale. This will help you at every step of the selling process – right from setting the right price for the property (not basing it on sentimental value). This mental preparation will also help you understand and help to formulate and execute an effective marketing campaign with our team.

8)    Before listing we can discuss home staging, we offer a complimentary 2 hour consultation with our stager, most times she will work with what you have, but you can discuss any finishing touches.

So arrange to meet us early in the process, that way we will discuss everything and explain our marketing plan. If this is done a few months before listing we will revisit the price later to see if we are still on the mark. With the right strategies and our selling your home can be a smooth process.
