Listing your property in vancouver: Home Selling Guide and Tips:

When you decide to sell your home in vancouver, BC, Canada or anywhere in Greater vancouver, we can help you with listing your property.

Listing your property in vancouver: The Listing Presentation
Without any obligation to hiring us, we will provide you with a free home evaluation and provide you with our high tech “listing presentation.” We will also show you why we are very well positioned on the web and how 82% of home buyers come from the Internet. Our websites are at the forefront of search engine technology and this allows your home the maximum exposure to the real estate market. We will present you also with our high qualifications and explain how we will market your home, and most importantly provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA). The CMA details information on past sales in your neighbourhood, homes that didn’t sell and homes that are currently for sale. We use the CMA, market statistics and our market expertise of the neighbourhood to help you set a price for your home.

We can also prepare an estimate of the net proceeds you will receive when your home sells. This is based on the suggested sale price of your property and any financing you have in place.

Listing your property in vancouver – The Listing Contract
Once we have shown you our high tech home selling marketing system, you will need to sign a listing contract in order for us to list your property for sale on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS®), our own website, and numerous other forms of marketing.

The contract will contain:
The price of the property.
The address and legal description of the property.
The existing financing arrangements.
A list of items (known as fixtures) that will not be included in the sale, i.e., a light fixture.
The commission amount.
The expiry date of the listing contract.
We will also get you to fill out a Property Disclosure Statement, a form where you indicate the condition of your property.

Our Home Selling Guide and Our Home selling system is second to none.

Behind the lines we offer an incredible system that allows you to always be in control. From our unique high tech marketing, to videos on the real estate channel, to our lead capturing system, your home will be the best marketed in vancouver. We also have a highly efficient feedback system in our Home selling guide that allows you to always be aware of feedback responses to buyers that came to your vancouver home.

We thought we would also post about 20 tips we always give our clients when selling their home:

As a homeowner, you can play an important part in the timely sale of your property. When you take the following steps, you’ll help your Sutton West Coast vancouver Sales Associate sell your home faster, at the best possible price.

Make the Most of that First Impression
A well-manicured lawn, neatly trimmed shrubs and a clutter-free porch welcome prospects. So does a freshly painted – or at least freshly scrubbed – front door. If it’s autumn, rake the leaves. If it’s winter, shovel the walkways. The fewer obstacles between prospects and the true appeal of your home, the better.

Invest a Few Hours for Future Dividends
Here’s your chance to clean up in real estate. Clean up in the living room, the bathroom, the kitchen. If your woodwork is scuffed or the paint is fading, consider some minor redecoration. Fresh wallpaper adds charm and value to your property. Prospects would rather see how great your home really looks than hear how great it could look, “with a little work.”

Check Faucets and Bulbs
Dripping water rattles the nerves, discolors sinks and suggests faulty or worn-out plumbing. Burned out bulbs leave prospects in the dark. Don’t let little problems detract from what’s right with your home.

Don’t Shut Out a Sale
If cabinets or closet doors stick in your home, you can be sure they will also stick in a prospect’s mind. Don’t try to explain away sticky situations when you can easily fix them. A little effort on your part can smooth the way toward a closing.

Think Safety
Homeowners learn to live with all kinds of self-setbooby traps: roller skates on the stairs, festooned extension cords, slippery throw rugs and low hanging overhead lights. Make your residence as non-perilous as possible for visitors.

Make Room for Space
Remember, potential buyers are looking for more than just comfortable living space. They’re looking for storage space, too. Make sure your attic and basement are clean and free of unnecessary items.

Consider Your Closets
The better organized a closet, the larger it appears. Now’s the time to box up those unwanted clothes and donate them to charity.

Make Your Bathrooms Sparkle
Bathrooms sell homes, so let them shine. Check and repair damaged or unsightly caulking in the tubs and showers. For added allure, display your best towels, mats and shower curtains.

Create Dream Bedrooms
Wake up prospects to the cozy comforts of your bedrooms. For a spacious look, get rid of excess furniture. Colorful bedspreads and fresh curtains are a must.

Open up in the Daytime
Let the sun shine in! Pull back your curtains and drapes so prospects can see how bright and cheery your home is.

Lighten up at Night
Turn on the excitement by turning on all your lights – both inside and outside – when showing your home in the evening. Lights add color and warmth, and make prospects feel welcome.

Avoid Crowd Scenes
Potential buyers often feel like intruders when they enter a home filled with people. Rather than giving your house the attention it deserves, they’re likely to hurry through. Keep the company present to a minimum.

Watch Your Pets
Dogs and cats are great companions, but not when you’re showing your home. Pets have a talent for getting underfoot. So do everybody a favor: Keep Kitty and Spot outside, or at least out of the way.

Think Volume
Rock-and-roll will never die. But it might kill a real estate transaction. When it’s time to show your home, it’s time to turn down the stereo or TV.

Be friendly, but don’t try to force conversation. Prospects want to view your home with a minimum of distraction.

Don’t Apologize
No matter how humble your abode, never apologize for its shortcomings. If a prospect volunteers a derogatory comment about your home’s appearance, let your agent handle the situation.

Keep a Low Profile
Nobody knows your home as well as you do. But your realtor know buyers – what they need and what they want. Your realtor will have an easier time articulating the virtues of your home if you stay in the background.

Don’t Turn Your Home into a Second-Hand Store
When prospects come to view your home, don’t distract them with offers to sell those furnishings you no longer need. You may lose the biggest sale of all.

Defer to Experience
When prospects want to talk price, terms, or other real estate matters, let them speak to an expert – your realtor.

Help Your Agent
Your realtor will have an easier time selling your home if showings are scheduled through her office. You’ll appreciate the results!
