Preparation is Key When Selling Your Calgary Home!
We all have some level of planning involved in our lives. Whether that be coordinating pick-up and drop-off for the kids, tickets for vacation next summer, or perhaps a movie on the weekend – they all involve planning!
A part of planning for that next task in your life is preparation, especially when it comes to selling your home successfully! That means not only getting the most value out of the sale financially, but also making the move when it is convenient and affordable for you and your family (if applicable).
When you start thinking about making a move, it’s important you plan things thoroughly and pay attention to all the details otherwise you may end up not as happy with your home sale as you should!
Over the years we’ve compiled several helpful blogs to help you prepare for selling your property in Calgary. Here’s some of our best ones:
#1 – Hire a REALTOR®, it will save you time and hassle!
It is never too early to invite your REALTOR® over to help you with pre-sale ideas to maximize value.
Don’t settle for anything less than a professional real estate agent and REALTOR® to help you with selling your property!
#2 – Check your finances once, twice, and a third time!
Get a firm handle on your finances as soon as possible before selling! Some questions you’ll want to answer:
What would your mortgage payout penalty be (if any)? How much will it cost to move? Think about associated costs!
#3 – What can you do to help improve resale value?
Do a thorough investigation of your home’s interior and exterior and make a list of touch-ups you can do. Painting, landscaping, de-cluttering and other small renovations can more than pay for themselves.
Always ask your REALTOR® if you aren’t sure if a renovation will be worthwhile financially.
#4 – Getting the interior of your home show-ready
Staging is critical and is proven to help homeowners get more money out of their homes.
There’s also a number of considerations you’ll want to make such as removing all personal items and documents from drawers and living spaces.
#5 – Getting the exterior of your home show-ready
Curbside appeal is the strongest first impression a seller can make on a potential buyer, so be sure that the exterior of your home is pristine before showings.
There are a number of things you can do to improve the look of your home’s exterior.
Your home is an invaluable asset, most importantly because it facilitates life, love and all of your basic needs.
Second to that it is an asset worth a tremendous amount of money. Anything you can do to improve its value, minimize the time on market and ultimately maximize your sale price becomes extremely important!
