A Few Great Facts About Selling Your Home.
Choose an Experienced, Professional Realtor!
Selling your home is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life. Your home is likely your largest asset - this may be the biggest financial move you've ever made, one that requires significant thought and strategy.
There will be countless questions during this process. How much is it really worth? How long will it take to sell in the current Abbotsford real estate market? How do you handle buyers making undesirable offers?
As a Realtor with years of experience and a proven track record, it is my job to guide you through this complicated process, from beginning to end. I want you to get the maximum value for your home, within your own time frame.
Here are some tips to help you begin:
1. Establish the Reasons You Want to Sell Your Home.
Before you begin the selling process, closely evaluate why you're moving. Do you have too little space or too much? Has your company transferred you to a new city and you're relocating from Abbotsford? Or are you simply looking for a change?
A complete analysis of your current position will set a good foundation for your home-selling strategy, as well as for your next home hunt. 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, you need to prepare yourself for a potentially slower process.
Be clear about these reasons, as they will directly influence the amount of time and effort you put into preparing your home for sale, and the amount you set for your asking price.
The competitive nature of the current Abbotsford real estate market means that over-pricing by a few thousand dollars could make the difference between your home selling quickly or not selling at all.
Overpricing your home might mean minimized offers, fewer showings, fewer agent responses, limited financing, limited buyers qualified for your type of home, or a smaller net price. Avoid these outcomes by setting the price of your home at its market value when you first list on the Vancouver market.
