The selling process…


What to expect when you list with us…

Since each property is unique there shouldn’t be hard set rules in place or expectations. We all have different ways of living and situations. For example, you can’t stage a house with tenants, or why stage a house at all when the house already shows beautifully. Let us break down our services to better suit your needs.

Before the listing

To be successful in selling your house at the highest price there has to be a well thought out strategy. Currently the Toronto real estate market is experiencing a boom, with houses in short supply almost every house sells over asking. You may ask yourself, why does this happen? The reality is every house sells over the asking price when it’s grossly under listed. This is just one part of the equation.

 

Staging

It’s become common practice to stage houses in the real estate game and we’re all for it when it is necessary but there are many occasions when it’s really not necessary. If you want to turn your life upside down let’s do it. So be prepared to move out all your furniture, put it in storage and live with the bare essentials, I mean why not you’re moving out anyway right?

There are times when it’s appropriate, for example the house is vacant and unfurnished and you need to add a few things here or there to make it look more complete. But there are also times when a house has been sitting vacant for years and the possibility of staging it is not possible so a different course of action is required.

 

Presentation

Most homes are sold through a system of co-operation among Realtors known as the Multiple Listing Service or MLS. Under this system, a Realtor working with a Seller offers to co-operate in the sale of that property with other Realtors. Any co-operating Realtor may then become a “sub-agent” of the original “listing” Realtor. That means co-operating Realtors – even though they are working closely with buyers – may actually be agents of the seller and must represent the interest of the seller.

It is possible for a buyer’s agent to co-operate through the MLS with a seller’s agent. A buyer’s agent Realtor would simply have to identify himself or herself to the listing Realtor as a Buyer’s agent in advance of any negotiation, and receive written permission. Your Realtor will inform you if a co-operating broker or salesperson is representing someone else’s interests.
