    Old South London Wortley Village Home Seller Fears


       What are some of the fears when someone lists a home for sale with a Realtor?

    For most, its worry about being locked into a lengthy listing agreement with a less than competent Realtor, costing valuable time and exposure on the market.

    sell a house

     

    • How quick will it take to sell?

     

    • How do I get as much money as I can for the house?

     

    • How do I avoid paying a huge commission fee and I don’t want to go to a discount, bare bones real estate brokerage or even to try to sell it myself?

     

    Over the years helping hundreds of home sellers successfully sell their home, we designed a series of checklists, a set on pricing, a series on the process and what to expect, from start to finish, the good and the bad. Our clients love it, and I thought that you might as well.

    You see, we also work with hundreds of buyers as well and if you saw or knew what we look at some sellers do or not do is impressive, and the unfortunate thing is, those sellers do not realize they are not maximizing their sold price, their marketing and exposure of their home.

    making the right decisions when listing a home for sale

    There are little subtle things that start to add up and if not checked in time, can mean the difference between your asking price & actual sale price and how much longer it will take your home to sell, not sell or unecessary problems that can occur!

     

     Shouldn’t I pick an “area specialist” to sell my home?

    Some Realtors focus primarily on one geographic area or neighbourhood. But buyers come from all over the city and in some cases, all over the province, not just from that small neighbourhood. So an area specialist usually really means “listing agent” in the area.

    But MLS, social media, the web and phones have changed that aspect of the real estate business. Now the crucial points in selecting a Realtor are experience, track record, technology and marketing skills.

    Also, buyers do not care whose sign is on the lawn; they want to see your home. Oh, the one that amazes me the most ” I live in the neighbourhood.” So what, so do children, just because a Realtor lives in the neighbourhood does not make them an expert or a seller of houses.
