You’ve wondered about it right?
How do I sell my home? Where do I start? What do I need to do?
If you need help selling your home, PropertyGuys can help. PropertyGuys.com is a Canadian real estate marketing company that provides homeowners with the tools they need to sell their homes privately, allows homeowners to have more control over the sale of their home, and saves homeowners money in the process. In this post, we are pleased to share with you what the marketing experts at PropertyGuys’ have to say:
Selling your home is easier than you might think. With PropertyGuys, we help homeowners with the three big components of selling: Price, Product, and Exposure:
PRICE: Ultimately, having an appropriate price is the key to selling. PropertyGuys works with certified appraisers who help you determine market value for your home, and provide a recommended listing range and selling range to help guide you throughout the selling process. Of course, setting a price is up to you, but with a certified appraisal, you have access to an unbiased expert opinion.
PRODUCT: You want your home to look its best and appeal to buyers. The first item up is cleanliness and fixing things. Leaking faucets, broken locks, and other items that you may no longer notice are going to stand out to the potential buyers. A good first step is to walk through your home with a very honest friend, and look for things to clean, fix, and upgrade.
Be sure to consider curb appeal and what upgrades would have the best return on your investment. Consider other homes in your neighbourhood, and what you can do to stand out from the pack without being TOO different. First impressions are important: Keep the outdoors tidy: pay attention to garden, garage doors, driveways, etc. Garage doors can easily make up 30% or more of the face of a home, and can make a huge impact on the appearance of a house. As such, buyers can be quickly turned off from houses whose garage doors are in poor condition.
Be realistic about what you can do without assistance and what you need professional help for: landscapers, home stagers and designers, and other services like those offered by Upright Door Service Inc. can offer extremely valuable assistance.
If there are elements that you don’t want to fix, just remember that you will need to take that into consideration, along with many other factors, when you decide on a price. If you’re selling your home with PropertyGuys, we also help with professional photos, house tour videos, and panoramic shots to help showcase your home, as well as feature booklets to help your home stand out.
EXPOSURE: This is probably the main reason people use us for selling their homes privately. PropertyGuys.com is the largest FSBO site in Canada, and through our brokerage partner, we can also get your home listed on REALTOR.ca (formerly known as the MLS system). In addition, we provide social media ads for your property, Kijiji ads, and signage: lawn signs, open house, directional, and A-frames.
