Home Seller's Guide

There's a lot of things to consider when selling a home, such as commission fees, mortgage penalties, costs of upgrades or repairs, time and preparation of getting your home 'sale ready', and navigating the timeline between your current home sale and your next home purchase.

If you're a home owner and thinking of selling, there's some important things to consider. First and foremost - why are you selling and what is your end goal? Some home owners intentionally sell their property to reap the financial rewards of built-up equity, some sell out of necessity, while others simply want an upgrade, an upsize or a relocation. Your motivation to sell will determine how you go about selling your home, such as when you want it listed, how quickly you want it sold and for what price, your willingness to make concessions, and your willingness to improve the property before listing it.

Aside from your motivation there are other things to consider, such as costs and fees associated with selling your home (upgrades, staging or sales commissions), time and preparation of getting your home 'sale ready', financial complexities (such as bridge financing or mortgage penalties), and navigating the tricky timeline of being in between a home sale and a home purchase. Plus there's all the paperwork and legal details in between. It might seem difficult to navigate all this, but it doesn't have to be. Especially if you have the right agent working for you.

What's next?... Pricing your home.

Remember, there are other homes on the market competing with your property. It's important to understand how those other homes compare to yours, but more importantly, what makes your home different from theirs. It's also imperative to understand current market conditions as this will help establish a benchmark listing price for your home. Some things to think about - is it a buyer's or seller's market? What's the average price per square foot? Are there any other trends or factors at play, such as rezoning or community development plans?

After assessing all the criteria, I will help you price your home competitively to attract qualified buyers. I do this by generating a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) report, which will show you a range of prices that buyers are paying for homes in your area with the current market conditions. If you want to learn more about your home's value, complete my online form to receive a complimentary CMA.
