Preparing For Market

We will help you every step of the way, when it comes to prepare your home for the real estate market. Curb appeal is an influential asset of your home - not to be overlooked! Sprucing up your gardens and fresh paint on your front door go a long way!
We use professional photographers to capture the beauty of your home, and use these photos and virtual tours for marketing purposes.

  • We have professional contacts who specialize in freshening gardens.
  • Carla is an Accredited Staging Professional, showcasing what you have.
  • We call upon other Stagers for whole home staging.

Consumers respond positively to smartly staged home, as it enables them to view the home as a “blank slate” in which they can visualize their own belongings.

The National Association of Realtors sums it up very well: https://www.nar.realtor/reports/profile-of-home-staging

Open House

Get them in the door where they can grow emotionally attached to your home!

Whether to have an open house or not is a personal decision. We find them to be a helpful tool, which we like to utilize when marketing homes. Yes, often your neighbours will poke around your home during an open house, but let’s face it - many homes are sold to friends of neighbours! Through word of mouth, neighbours are an essential tool in the marketing process.

In addition to neighbours, we advertise your home on Openhouses.ca, our website, the MLS, as well as the local newspaper. We use all the tools!

Other than the public open house, we hold an Agent Only open house, wherein we invite local agents to view your property. We also hold an in-house agent open house for the agents in our Burlington offices.

With full-colour feature sheets to distribute, we arm ourselves with the knowledge of your home, focussing on all the positives for our visitors.

Professional Negotiations

Whether we are in a buyer's market or a seller's market, we are negotiating for our clients, attaining the highest price that the market is willing to pay. Being educated on the current comparable sales is key! We are always abreast of the market trends and use this knowledge in our sales strategy.

  • What is our competition?
  • How do we compare to other homes?
  • What are the most recent sales in our area and how do we compare to these?
  • How do current interest rates affect our sale?

Once we are on the market, we track all viewings and request feedback from every agent that has shown the property. This also keeps us educated with respect to our product and pricing.

Pricing Your Home

Many factors are taken into consideration when putting a price tag on your home. We perform a thorough comparative market analysis, drawing from the most recent sales of comparable properties in your neighbourhood, to come up with a price that reflects market trends.

We will:

  • Price to current market
  • Focus on the positive aspects of your home
  • Showcase your home - what is your “wow” feature?

We will be prepared for offers with knowledge of the current market, and knowledge of your home. Education is key!

Client Testimonial

Rick and Carla have been my agents for the last 3 moves that I've made...that is, 3 sales and 3 purchases. They are the easiest people to work with because they are personable, knowledgeable and they always take the time to listen in order to figure out what you are looking for in a new home. They give practical and helpful suggestions about how to prepare your home for sale, in order to get the best possible offer. They have a really good sense of what the market is doing and they suggest prices for your sale and offers for your purchase that are spot on. In all 3 of my moves, I had a win-win situation with Rick and Carla. The homes I was selling sold for asking price or more in less than a week. In fact 2 of the 3 sold in one day! And, on the flip side, all 3 of the homes I purchased I got for asking price, at most! Rick and Carla know the market, know their business and know people. They are simply the best at what they do!
