3 important steps to remember for home sellers





As the days continue to get nicer, real estate becomes more of a hot topic.

Over the years, we have helped our clients secure the legal help they need to ensure home sales are completed as smooth as possible. With that in mind, we wanted to point out a few other simple tips to help you to sell your home when Moving Day finally arrives.

Pay attention to your home
The more you know about your home, the better it is for you. To start, we suggest doing a bit of research on the value of other homes recently sold in your neighbourhood. Doing this gives you valuable information and a better idea of what homes similar to yours are currently worth to buyers. If the prices seem a bit lower than you’d hoped, knowing this before you list your home could save you from receiving low offers that don’t interest you.

To build on the idea of gaining information about your home, booking a home inspection is a great tip for home sellers. A pre-listing inspection is full home inspection that will help you identify any potential problems with your home. Knowing what these problems are gives you the opportunity to make repairs or include them when you list your home. Doing this can help you adjust your own asking price accordingly before a buyer does.

Last but not least, you’ll want to take a good look at the appearance of your home. After all, if you want to sell, you want to make sure potential buyers see your home at its best. That means you might need to purge any unwanted clutter around your home that could make rooms appear smaller or unappealing.

Find a good agent
The second important tip for home sellers revolves around finding the right real estate agent. Doing so is no easy task though. You’ll want to ask family and friends for recommendations before doing a bit of research yourself. The right agent should be someone who listens to you, shows patience, experience and even has a good relationship with other agents – which can help when negotiating starts.

Make sure you have legal help
After years of experience serving countless clients, we can’t stress enough how important it is to be diligent with any real estate legal matters. We are always available to help you every step of the way to ensure all the details are taken care of for you.

Asking for help is one of the best tips for home sellers.


Now that you know a bit more about the basics of selling your home, we wish you all the best in the days ahead. Remember, it’s completely natural to feel a bit overwhelmed with big life decisions, so don’t forget to ask for help from real professionals. Most realtors and lawyers are there to offer their advice based on previous experience. Use that information to your advantage to make things easier for yourself.
