10 Things every seller should do when selling property!

  1. 1. Ten things every home seller should do
  2. 2. Use a REALTOR® A REALTOR® will help you price your property, give it market exposure to as wide a range of potential buyers as possible, and help you through negotiations toward a successful closing.© 2013 www.
  3. 3. Know your competition Buyers choose from a variety of home types and neighbourhoods. Visit show homes and open houses and rely on your REALTOR®’s expertise to learn about the market and competing properties.© 2013 www.
  4. 4. Get financial advice Consult your lender about your next property and potential penalties on your existing mortgage. Budget to get your home in ‘show home’ condition. Take care of and remove any liens on title.© 2013 www.
  5. 5. Turn your home into a show home Show homes are decorated so that buyers can imagine themselves living there. Your REALTOR® can offer tips to help you apply show home décor principles to your property.© 2013 www.
