5 Tips For First-Time Home Sellers

5 Tips For First-Time Home Sellers

At the Bansal Team, we ensure that you have all the information you need so that your sales process is a total success. Our team of experienced REALTORS® know exactly what makes buyers in the Pickering, Ontario area tick. With that in mind, we’ve compiled five handy tips for selling your home for the first time.

1. Get Your Home Ready For The Market

It’s no secret that a pretty home sells, so any small improvements that you can carry out yourself, make those tasks a ‌priority before the house hits the market. We’re referring to touch-ups to the paint, having a complete deep clean and decluttering of the home, conducting any repairs on anything that may be or will eventually become a hazard, and lastly, staging.

Staging is a crucial part of ensuring that your property is as beautiful as it can be. Staging is primarily what interested parties will view when they visit your property at an open house, so you will want to ensure that the tools you used to stage your home are striking, yet unimposing.

2. Ensure Your Home Is Priced Correctly

Part of a successful sales process is ensuring that you have the right price for your home. Doing this requires a combination of research and enlisting a professional to ensure that your home and its unique assets are being sold for their true value.

You also need to assess your property’s unique values. Perhaps you have a secret room, hidden elevator or a creek in your backyard! Whatever it is, expert help from Bansal Team Real Estate can ensure that your home is sold for what it is truly worth!

3. Educate Yourself On Closing Expenses

Unfortunately, selling a home isn’t as simple as finding the ideal buyer and handing over the keys. Selling your home can be an extensive journey, with costs attached. 

Closing costs consist of legal fees, registration of transfer, mortgage penalty, real estate and legal fees. Some of these fees, especially those regarding legal issues can cost thousands of dollars in some cases.

If you are thinking of selling your house, make sure that you conduct thorough research on some of the attached costs to avoid any surprises.

4. Decide What Your Next Move Will Be

You’ll need to decide where you are going after your home is sold. You need to assess the associated cost with wherever you’re thinking of going next, and how this can impact your sales process. This is also important for knowing when to start the moving out process, and when the new owners can begin moving in.

Timelines are super important when selling your house, so make sure you have a good grasp on what your next move is.

5. Hire An Experienced, Local REALTOR®

One of the best ways to ensure you handle each step with total ease is to hire an experienced and local REALTOR®. This is a good way of ensuring that you don’t miss any vital steps during your sales process.

An experienced and localized REALTOR® will be able to give you an accurate estimate for your home, as well as advise you on what the likely cost of the sale will be.

Information is power, and a good REALTOR® can help you access all the information you need to transform your sales process into a quick and stress-free process. REALTORS® can help you with everything from staging your home to ensuring that your next move is a smooth transition.
