Whether you are moving to a different city in Canada or simply want to cash in on your investment, you will always want to sell your property quickly and for as large a profit as possible. If you are planning to sell your home this 2015, being able to do just that is much easier than before.
Guelph City has been consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in, as well as one of the best real estate markets to buy in. This should mean there will be no shortage of buyers interested in acquiring property in Guelph. This alone should help you sell your home quickly enough.
Despite this fact, there is no harm in doing your part to help convince buyers that their search for a new house begins and ends at your doorstep. This is especially true if you have to compete with other sellers in your neighbourhood. With that in mind, here are few tips to help you sell your home even faster:
Choose the Right REALTOR®
First and foremost, you’ll want to choose a REALTOR®, like Emily Cassolato, who has experience in dealing with real estate in Guelph. This experience shouldn’t be underestimated as a good REALTOR® can help draw in more buyers to view your home, especially if your chosen REALTOR® regularly uses MLS listings in Guelph.
The Guelph MLS (multiple listing service) is a way for agents and brokers to connect and acquire details on the latest properties to hit the market. Needless to say, a REALTOR® who has access to the MLS significantly increases the exposure of your home and brings more buyers to your door.
Learn the Basics of Photography
It is no secret that the photos you post online are the first thing prospective buyers see, and are what help entice a buyer to check out your home in person. You don’t necessarily have to be as good as Edward Burtynsky or other professional photographers, but you should know the basics of photography such as manipulating ISO and white balance. This should help you take a flattering snapshot of your home.
Declutter Your Home
When you do have buyers scheduled to view your home, be sure to do some quick, yet thorough, cleaning. Buyers want to be able to imagine themselves living in a home they are viewing, and it can be difficult to do that when your children’s toys are on the floor. Other personal objects such as family photos and the like should also be kept out of sight. For the best results, you may want to consult your REALTOR® about having your home staged professionally.
