Your satisfaction and happiness is very important to The Real Estate Team Ramani. I understand how hectic selling a house can be. In fact, when not handled properly, it can quickly turn into a nightmare. Team Ramani has condensed the process of selling a home into 5 simple steps, to make it easy on you and your family.
Step 1: Decide to Sell
When you sell, timing is one of the most important considerations. It's all about supply and demand and if you try to sell in a "buyers market" you won't usually get top dollar because there are more homes than buyers at the time. Season is another important consideration, and spring is a better time to sell than winter, because that's when most people shop for homes.
If you want to get more for your home, you need to increase its appeal or value. When you have few financial resources, something as simple as repainting can make a big difference. I will personally walk the home with you and provide you with a list of improvements that will increase your return on investment as well as provide you with a list of trades to get it done. Of course, remodelling part or all of the property can be a very good idea if you have the money.
Simple things like keeping the lawn mowed and clean can make a huge difference. When buyers see a lovely lawn and clean exterior, it looks like you have taken good care of the property, and they are more likely to check it out
Many buyers want a home inspection before making an offer, so if this is already done, you'll save a lot of time and trouble. Plus, an inspection may reveal problems you need to take care of, in order to get top dollar. Before you put up the"for sale" sign, talk to a real estate pro!
Step 2: Hire an Agent
There are thousands of real estate agents in the GTA, so how do you choose one that’s right for you? Be thorough in your agent search. These people will act on your behalf during the selling process, so you need knowledgeable, experienced, and trustworthy professionals for the job.
Don't settle for less than trained professionals who know how to negotiate you the win to ensure maximum profit without leaving any money on the table. The differences between a mediocre and great real estate agent are results, exceptional services and personal assistance.
Step 3: List your Home
A good agent does a walkthrough and suggests improvements to maximize profits and provide contacts to get it done, and before helping you determine an asking price, he or she will compile a detailed report on market data and property sale prices in your area and how they relate to your home.
Once a price is set and your home is listed, your agent goes to work marketing your property through several effective channels. This may include MLS, social media, newspapers, flyers, and websites. This helps to create a strong buyer interest in your home.
Your agent offers open house events, so more than one buyer can tour your home in a day. You also have a great deal of assistance with home staging, as this helps the buyers place themselves in your home, mentally.
Step 4: Receive an Offer
Not all buyer offers are good offers and some may not even be worth considering. This is why it is so important to have an experienced negotiator on your side. However, regardless of the offer, your agent will present it to you and go over all the "pros" and cons" and provide professional advice on whether to accept it or not. Even low offers help when dealing with bid wars, an experienced agent will know how to use that leverage correctly to ensure the highest sale price for you.
Step 5: Close the Sale
Once you accept the offer certain expenses need to be paid before the sale is finalized, movers need to be organized, arranging of the keys etc ... The Real Estate Ramani Team is there for you at closing time to guide you through the process, and before you know it, your house is officially sold!
