Selling Your Home in a Balanced Market - June 2024
  1. Look your best.

  2. Price it right.

  3. Time the market.

  4. Get expert advice.

If you are considering selling your home in the current market, consider that your home must look good and stand out from the rest.  There are many property choice out there. Buyers will more likely go for the home that looks the best.   If you are thinking of doing a bathroom or kitchen upgrade, now is the time to do it. Your yard should be tidy, tidy, tidy! First impressions like entryway sidewalks, doors and street views matter. Definitely declutter the interior.  Remove your personal items such as photos and minimize art work. It should be empty enough that a new owner could visualize it as their own.  

Price your home to sell. Pricing a home at a premium works best in a Seller’s market. When competition is high, as it is now, price your home to compete. It will save you the grief of future price reductions, many more days of being on the market and more days keeping it ‘show home ready’.

Decide when the best time is for you to present your home. When can it be the best home for sale in your neighbourhood?  If there are many homes for sale nearby that are similar, wait until they sell. If there are pricier homes in your neighbourhood and you can price yours at a lower price, your home will look more appealing!  If you are the only home on the market in your area, then there will be less competition.

Get expert advice. An experienced realtor who wants the best scenario for you and your home sale and will help you with all the above.  Don’t just list and hope for the best, when you can do better!!
