Are you Thinking of Selling Your Home? Not sure what to do or How to Start. Here is a Simple 5 Step Guide that can help you get Started.

No. 1 Decide when to Sell. Timing can influence your Home’s selling price. Other factors like how quickly you need to sell, whether it’s a Buyers or Sellers market, Supply and Demand, can all effect the final selling price of your home.

No. 2 Go to the Bank- Check your Mortgage- Prepare your finances. Will the buyer “assume” your mortgage or are you “discharging” it? Is there a penalty fee? Is the mortgage portable? How much can you increase your monthly payments? What taxes are involved? These are important questions to ask your Realtor and your Mortgage Specialists.

No. 3 Find a Real Estate Agent who is right for you. The Realtor who helped you buy your home is a good place to start. Or Look for names on “For Sale” signs in your neighbourhood, someone who is experienced, full time, a specialists in your Area. Ask your friends and family. Make sure to interview two or three candidates and choose the one you like best.

No 4 Sign a Listing Agreement with a Realtor and their brokerage to market and Sell your home. Determine your home’s asking price The right asking price will attract buyers and pay you a maximum return. Setting the price too low means you could miss out on thousands of dollars. Setting the price too high will discourage potential buyers.

No 5 Prepare your home for sale. See your home through a buyer’s eyes: get rid of the clutter, remember less is more. Do all minor repairs. Prepare a Net Sheet. Remember, weigh the cost of all your improvements versus the Potential Financial Return. For more information or detailed Report- Email us at RogersTV or info@ kapeleris.com
