Seller Frequently Asked Questions

The listing price heavily depends on the expertise and market knowledge of your broker and realtor.  The goal is to sell your home quickly and for the highest price possible. Here are some factors that can influence the price of your home:

  • Current real estate market conditions including recently sold homes and available inventory.
  • The interior and exterior condition of the home, as well as landscaping and outdoor features.
  • Hard facts such as lot size, square footage and location.

No one has a more important role in the selling process than you. Here are some ways your participation can contribute to a successful sale:

  • Keep your home clean and tidy and avoid unnecessary clutter. 
  • Be flexible and allow access for showings, even when it is short notice.
  • Be available to your Garnet realtor, communication is key when trying to sell your home.
  • Remove or lock up valuables.
  • Limit conversations with buyers/agents regarding price.

Studies show that most buyers have been researching their desired areas for 6 month on average before they make a purchase. Most of the buyers that come through your home will do so during the first two weeks that your home is listed. The buyers and their agent have also done their research and are aware of current market values. If a home is overpriced it will have to compete with properly priced homes. Overpriced listings typically end up with multiple price reductions and longer market times. 

As they say, “You only get one chance to make a first impression.”

You can start by decluttering rooms, counter-tops, walls, and closets. Too many “things” make it difficult for the buyer to see their possessions in your home, but don’t strip everything or your home will appear stark and inhospitable. 

  • Clean and arrange furnishings in a way that will showcase the room’s size and natural light exposure.   
  • It is especially important that the kitchens and bathrooms are spotless. Make sure the basic appliances and fixtures work and replace leaky faucets.
  • Make sure the house smells good. Start by refreshing carpets and upholstery with baking soda. Simple reed diffusers can be a good solution in small spaces. Choose neutral fragrances such as lemon and orange, vanilla, and light herbal blends. Baking fresh cookies is always a crowd pleaser!
 

It is also important to consider is “curb appeal”. People driving by a property will judge it from outside appearances and make a decision then as to whether or not they want to see the inside. Sweep the sidewalk, mow the lawn, prune the bushes, weed the garden and clean debris from the yard. Clean the windows (both inside and out) and touch up any chipping paint.
