In The Seller Chronicles, you'll find relevant blogs and/or vlogs written and published by our agents that will help you through the home selling process. From how to get started, leading up to the negotiation process to get your home from listed to sold - we're with you every step of the way and we want to make sure you have a library of resources to get started.

One of the most nerve-wracking things about selling a home is pricing it. Pricing makes such a big difference in how your property is perceived by buyers—and ultimately, it determines how much money you can get out of your home.

That means you want to get it right so you don’t lose out on any money. But going too high can scare away the perfect buyers. So what are you supposed to do?

Well, first things first: work with an expert to price your home. Your real estate agent will complete a market comparison and analyze your home against your local market and house comps to find the perfect listing price.

But sometimes sellers aren’t so sure about the price their agents come up with. I occasionally get questions about whether or not it’s a good…

Oh No—Home Inspection Problems

Getting an inspection on a property is a standard part of the buying process so you know exactly what you’re getting into. An inspection gives you a good idea of the condition of the house and if there are any problems or big repairs needed.

Every buyer and seller hopes that the inspection will come back with a gold star and that everything will be good to go. But sometimes that doesn’t happen. Now what do you do?

 If you’re the buyer, you’ll work with your agent to negotiate repairs with the seller. You’ll tell them what’s wrong and make a request for them to fix it.

 While you can choose to do all the repairs yourself, sometimes lenders will require that certain repairs are completed before they’ll provide you…

If you’re thinking about selling your home, pay attention to this! These are the biggest mistakes that I see home sellers make ALL the time. Don’t be like them. Learn from their mistakes and avoid doing these 5 things.
Mistake 1: Setting too high of a sales price

Most buyers filter homes by price. Pricing your home too high can make it so the best buyers for your property never even see your listing! Your agent will help you set the sales prices, so listen to their reasons for the price. Since they know exactly what’s going on in your local market at the moment, it’s best to listen to their expertise–that’s why you hired them, after all!

Mistake 2: Not leaving enough time to prep your home for sale

If you want to get the most money…

Today, we're diving into an important topic that could make a big difference in the amount of money you net from your home sale.  The market is hot. There are more buyers who need houses than houses for sale. That means your home is in demand and it’s not even listed yet. That sounds like great news for you and it is!

 

As a result of this, we know potential sellers are thinking… Hmm maybe we should just put a sign up in the front yard and see what happens. The truth is,

The worst thing you can do as a seller in a hot market is to do it alone.

 

  So before you head to the local hardware store for that "For Sale By Owner" sign, keep reading. We know you're doing the math and figuring out how much selling your home on your own…

Have you ever wondered why there are so many people involved when you Buy and Sell? What do they all do and how do they get paid? We get this question a lot from first-time homebuyers but also from people who have not bought or sold in a while, or the last time they did it was out of province or country. It is different everywhere, so make sure to check with your local Realtor.


Realtors: This can be a single agent or a team. It is best to get someone who knows the hyper-local market that you are Buying and Selling in. Usually, the Buyer has their Agent and the Seller has their own agent, and each works for a Real Estate Brokerage. This may be the same person, or the same Brokerage but that is called multiple Representation in Ontario and that…

Hey there! I see that you're selling your home and wondering what the heck is going on when everyone else’s homes selling super-quick! Or maybe you are thinking of selling and want to avoid being the home that sits. Either way, keep on reading!


#1 Condition- If your home is in need of some repairs, that may be why Buyers are overlooking your home and offer on another. Buyers prefer to move right in and avoid having to do small (or big) repairs to a home. If you have neglected items on your maintenance list, this would be a great time to address them. Things like chipped paint, torn screens and over-grown landscaping can make a difference in how a Buyer will view your home. A listing appointment should include any specific items that would…

We have all heard that the best time to list your home is in the spring. This is when houses show better, people want a change and you can be settled before the start of school. These are great reasons to sell your home in the spring, for sure. There are also a lot of downsides to listing in the spring.


Here are 3 Reasons to NOT wait until everyone else:

A TON OF INVENTORY!  Your house better be show-ready because the competition is tight

LOTS OF LOOKY-LOOS!  People are coming out of the winter and can be just curious about pricing their own home, or worse, just looking for decorating ideas

BUSY BUSY! More volume= more issues in a lot of cases. Most families are very busy during this time and it can be challenging to book showings and…
