Buying your first home is an exciting milestone in life and a huge financial accomplishment. Deciding to sell that first home can be an emotional and stressful time, but our team is here to make it easier. As a first-time seller, there’s a lot to learn, and we will be there to guide you through it all.

Here is what you need to know as a first-time home seller.

Work With a Local Team

The key to a successful sale is to work with a team who can sell a buyer on your home and your neighbourhood. As a first-time home seller, working with a local real estate team who knows the neighbourhood, its real estate, and its demographic will ensure that your home is being shown and marketed to the right audience.

Make It Move-In Ready

There is a lot you can do to prepare your home for listing, such as decluttering and addressing any repairs that are needed. Packing away personal memorabilia and adding a coat of neutral coloured paint transforms your home into a blank canvas for the buyer. We can recommend cleaners, handymen, and stagers to make sure your home looks its best for every showing.

Pricing it Right

To properly price your home and attract the strongest amount of serious buyers, our team will complete a Comparative Market Analysis to see what similar homes in your area have sold for. We will also determine how the improvements or additions you’ve added to your home will influence the value.

Planning for the Future

As a first-time home seller, it’s important to determine what your next steps are. Are you thinking of renting? Upsizing? Downsizing to a condo? Relocating? No matter what your plan is, our team is happy to help you achieve all of your future real estate goals.
