Sellers: The Seller's Practical Guide
  1. Hire an agent who's right for you

    Selling a property requires savvy marketing skills, a network of contacts, patience and tenacity. There are several steps involved in selling a property. Find a real estate agent who will advertise your property as widely as possible, and who has access to qualified buyers. Follow up on a personal referral or interview several agents. Make sure the agent works full-time and is familiar with your neighbourhood. Finally, make sure your agent has the experience and a strong financial background to negotiate offers on your behalf.

  2. Discover the value of your property

    Consider having your property inspected, particularly its electrical system and physical structure, by a qualified professional. You want to be aware of any problem areas that could come up in the buyer’s inspection. If you cost your property accordingly, the buyer is less likely to renegotiate your asking price.

    With professional advice from your agent, determine the value of your property that is true to market values and the state of your property.

  4. Showcase your home to its best advantage

    The outside of your home should be clean and well-maintained. You want your property to have curb appeal! First impressions often make lasting impressions. The inside is as important. Owners often assume that others share their style and décor. Try and air out your living space by removing some furniture and clearing away clutter.

  5. Negotiate with confidence

    Let your agent work for you. An experienced agent has been in business for awhile and knows how to handle a variety of situations. Your agent should be tough but fair in negotiations.
