There are many realtors, how can you find one who cares about you?
You have lived in your home, there has been laughter, there have been tears. All those memories may be conflicting with your desire to make a change. The big decision to sell your home. Combine that with the fact that your home is likely one of your largest financial assets, and you must protect your investment through the transition. I understand. I am not here to push or pursuade you, only to provide you with enough information to feel good about the big decisions you are going to be making.
You will want to feel confident about true market value, you will want to understand the process of selling your home. You want to be represented by a professional who will represent your best interests always. This includes all details right through and beyond the day you move. My goal is to be your resource for real estate services from now on. I care about what happens to you, because your satisfaction and respect are my business.
Maybe you would like some assistance with suggestions for decor, organization, landscaping, repair or even planning your move. I am a real estate specialist and along with me comes my team of experts in all other areas related to the successful sale of your home. Together we can help you every step of the way.
Here are some tips to help you begin:
1. Establish the Reasons You Want to Sell Your Home.
Before we begin the sales process, I will ask why you are moving. Do you have too little space or too much? Has your company transferred you to a new city and you're relocating? Everyone has different reasons.
I can help you understand your current position and establish the foundation for your home-selling strategy, as well as finding your next home. If, for example, you have already purchased a new home and your goal is to make a quick sale on your current home, this reason will chart the path you take in the home-selling process. If, on the other hand, you aim to net the highest price possible for your home a different strategy for marketing and sale will be engaged.
As an expert in marketing and selling real estate I am here to guide you through the process to attain the best results possible.
2. Buy or sell first?
This is the ultimate question! Let us help you understand the market conditions that we are experiencing right now. We can share valuable insight into what the "hot buttons" for today's buyer's (the people that will be buying your home) are looking for. You will also want a realistic price expectation so you know what your next step will be. You will want to understand how "fast" or slow the market is, what the competing properties are and more. We live and work in this community and our career and success are based on solid, real world knowledge that is accurate and up to the minute. Guiding you to the right decision is my specialty. We can answer and advise the best course of action if you find the home of your dreams before yours is sold. If the reverse is true and we have a buyer for yours before you find your new home, our job is to protect and recommend strategies which will protect you from start to finish.
The competitive nature of the current GTA real estate market means we will provide you with up-to-date market information and the right strategy for getting your home sold efficiently and with your best interests in mind throughout.
