SELLING

Help With Selling Your Home

You have officially committed to selling your home. You are at the first step of a big transaction. No matter what the circumstance is, change involves time and some type of stress. Working with someone experienced can alleviate this and allow you to still carry on with your life.

I find being very upfront and honest with what needs to be done in order to make the sale of your home a success proves to be the best way

We can then work together at attaining that goal!

I know when I was 18 years old my husband and I sold our first home and throughout the whole process no one told me up-font what you need to do and what was expected. From then on, I have always made sure my sellers are very well informed about all that is involved in selling.

2 KEYS TO SELLING YOUR HOME FOR TOP DOLLAR

#1 THE LOOKS

A potential buyer might do a little dance if your house looks very appealing to him, and
he can picture himself living there.

So here’s what you do:

Look at your house through the lens of ALL potential buyers
If something stands out as dated, is there a simple way to give it a refresh? Fresh paint is an inexpensive way to give a room a bright, fresh look. Consider swapping in some new fixtures. Fill the room with sunlight.

Clean clean clean!
And clean some more! Those faucets need to sparkle, and the dust-bunnies banished. If there’s grime, it’s hard for buyers to picture themselves living there. “Ew, gross.”

Declutter
If you are still living in the home, do your absolute best to tidy everything. Not every potential buyer is as excited as you are about your Star Trek figurine set or incredible
selection of Keurig Coffee. Put it all away!

Professional Photography
This is the step that a lot of sellers get so wrong. Yes, your smartphone has a bazillion- megapixel top-of-the-line camera in it. But newsflash: A smartphone is still not good enough. Your photos should be wide-angle, bright and beautiful, architecturally straight, and professionally finished. Jessica Betteridge ensures professional photos are taken for every one of our homes.

#2 BRING THE MASSES
Here’s how to do it.
  • To get top dollar, you need offers.
  • To get offers, you need people seeing your home.
  • For people to see your home, it needs to appear where potential buyers are looking – in MLS®, print, online and mobile search.
  • By selling with a real estate agent, your house appears on a TON of key networks:

Agent-to-agent
Real estate agents talk. If something is coming up that one of their clients is looking for, they JUMP on it.

MLS® network
The tool every real estate starts their day with. Did you know there are thousands of buyers who have automatic emails notifying them when a new house is listed that fits their “dream home” description? You definitely want your house appearing here!

Print
Get your home appearing in applicable newspaper, classified or magazine listings. Jessica Betteridge and her team can create magazine-quality feature brochures, so potential buyers have something glossy to take home with them.

Online search
By listing on MLS, a house suddenly appears not just on MLS.ca, but on hundreds of websites, including Google, Kijiji, SK Open Houses, Realtor.ca, Ovlix, Saskatoon Properties, and more. It also will appear on smartphone / tablet real estate apps and search.
