After price, the condition of your home is the single biggest factor determining how fast—and for
how much—your home sells.


REALTORS® repeatedly find that people cannot visualize the potential of a home. They have to
see it. That means that how your home shows now is how people see themselves in it. They can’t
see past the chips, leaks, clutter and stains—in fact, they tend to focus even more on those
things. Luckily, you can dramatically improve how your home sells with few quick steps:


Clean – Inside and out. It matters. A lot.


De-clutter – Give it away, throw it away or store it away, but get it out of your house.


Make minor repairs – Chipped paint, cracked tiles, squeaky hinges, leaky faucets – Fix

Once you’ve found a price for your home and put it in showroom condition, there’s one more
critical piece of the puzzle before buyers begin flocking in to see your masterpiece: their attention.

interested if they don’t know your home exists. But more importantly, the more buyers you have
interested in your home, the higher the potential sale price, and the faster the sale.
Marketing your home to the biggest audience possible takes more than a sign on the front lawn.
The best and fastest home sales use a combination of many of the following:

We know it's the US of A where these stats are from but they are relevant to our market and they are Zillow stats. It has been a decade of watching HGTV  and all sorts of shows teaching us how and what to look for when buying or selling your home. 

"The third annual Zillow Group Report on Consumer Housing Trends was released this week. One trend I thought was interesting was this idea of the DSIY “do some of it yourself” seller. After a solid decade of home improvement television and educational content online, it seems like sellers are tackling high impact work like home improvements (50%) and pricing research (39%) before contacting an agent, while still relying on agents to do the heavy lifting operations like paperwork (78%) negotiations (75%) and…

Is it a Condo, a townhome or a Bungalow , Two Storey home in Etobicoke you wish for?

Your number one move is to get pre-approved for a loan; unless you're a cash buyer, then, by all means, step right up to the plate.

 

Having a bank or money lender (Mortgage Broker- we have two brokers who can give you a speedy reply) pre-approve a loan allows you to begin the search for your dream home with your eyes wide open. You wouldn’t walk into a store to buy a watch if you didn’t know you had the money to pay for it.
