Selling your home does not need to create
anxiety and stress. Here are the top four factors to consider to ensure a
smooth process for all.
Obtain a compliance certificate. One of the
most important factors when selling your home is to ensure all improvements and
additions made to your property are compliant with the municipal regulations.
As a seller you need to pay the local authorities to inspect your home to
confirm whether municipality-approved plans correspond with the built structure.
If issues arise, you as the seller will need to make changes in order to
receive the compliance certificate. This certificate assures buyers that there
won't be any expensive surprises.
Know your data
Setting a realistic price makes
negotiations between buyers and sellers easier. You need to know what
comparative properties sold for over the past few years, in order to determine
the market price. These statistics can be derived from the Deed’s Office. The
bank valuation is valuable, but should not be your only data. Explore the prices of homes currently for sale
in the market to know what your property is competing against. In today’s
market, what a willing and able buyer is willing to pay for your home
determines the market price.
Presentation and accessibility
Staging is important for both buyers and
sellers. For sellers it increases the chance of selling the property quickly at
the best possible price. For buyers it allows them to envision what the
property could be and connect emotionally. A staging tip: De-clutter your home,
this makes it easier for potential buyers to imagine themselves living there.
Be sure to remove any family photos and other sentimental items. Also, accessibility
to your property is key when a willing and able buyer wants to view the
property. This may make or break the deal.
How the property is marketed makes a
It’s advisable to choose an exclusive
mandate specialist to market your property. These specialists ensure a more
generous budget for well-managed, timely marketing from the agency. The agent gets
to know your home intimately and controls viewing access, thus reducing
security risks. Sellers are guaranteed the highest possible price in the
current market as well as consistency of price versus an auction feel.
Selling or buying a home is your biggest
investment. Following these simple steps can create certainty, leading to happy
buyers and sellers.
