Selling a home is a big deal. You've put a lot of money into your home and you want to get a lot out of it—you want to make a profit. So how do you get your home to sell for the highest possible price? What should you be doing to prepare your home for sale?
There are many important things you need to know about the process of selling a home to make sure your home sells quickly and goes for the highest possible price. Still, you don't need to know them all right now. If you're thinking it's about time to sell your home—or just discussed it with the family and made an official decision—then there are four key things you should be doing right now:
Choose the right real estate agent: there are many different real estate agents in the GTA and it's important you choose the right one. You want somebody who's professional and well connected, somebody who knows the Toronto real estate market inside and out. A great real estate agent will be able to answer any questions you might have about the home selling process as well as helping you negotiate the best deal possible.
Make your home saleable: competition is stiff and you don't want to wait forever for your home to sell. Even more importantly, you want to sell your home for the highest possible price. Repairs, repainting and minor renovations can make a big difference in the value of your home. A great real estate agent will be able to tell you what repairs and renovations can be made to increase your home's value.
Understand your offers: you should know what all the specific items of each offer are and make sure you use a real estate lawyer to ensure everything is in order. You should have professional help on call in case there are any unforeseen circumstances that could negatively impact your sale.
Know how to close the deal: there are several things that need to be taken care of in order to close the deal, including adjustments, net proceeds, closing costs and possession date. You should have a basic understanding of all these things and your real estate agent and lawyer should be able to help you fill in the blanks and make sure everything goes smoothly.
