LET’S MAXIMIZE YOUR SALE
KATHY GIVES YOU THE GOLD STANDARD IN SERVICE!
Selling a home can be a time consuming and confusing process if you don’t have the right REALTOR® by your side. CENTURY 21® sells tens of thousands of homes every year in Canada and we bring the power of the CENTURY 21 system to each of our clients.
As a CENTURY 21 REALTOR, I will advise you on pricing, preparing, and promoting your home so that you achieve your goals. Start exploring this process by signing up for a seller consultation and home evaluation so that you see similar homes on the market as well as an estimated value range for your home.
Once you are ready to sell, we will use our CENTURY 21 seller consultation process to develop a pricing strategy for your home and identify the most important steps to prepare your home for the market. Once you go on the market, we will create a customized marketing plan for you using state-of-the-art technology tools to get your property in front of more potential buyers, so you can get the best offer.

TIPS FOR PREPARING YOUR HOME TO SELL FOR MORE!
If the house is overflowing with stuff, the buyers might worry that the house won’t have ample space for all their belongings.
Take your excess stuff and donate it, or pack it up to be stored off-site. Not only will cleaning clutter help your house look more appealing to buyers, it will also help you once you’ve accepted an offer and get ready to move into your new home. It will make moving a lot easier for you if your stuff is already packed.
You’re pretty safe with a neutral colour because it’s very rare that someone will hate it, and the other benefit is that a lighter colour allows buyers to envision what the walls would look like with the colour of their choice.
It’s in your best interest to help buyers picture themselves in your house and if they don’t feel at home they will be off to look at other homes.
When you have your home fixed and up and move-in ready you’ll create more interest and maybe even multiple offers.
If the smells are pervasive, prepare to do some deep cleaning as many buyers are fully aware of sellers “masking techniques” such as candles or plug-in room deodorizers. And be sure to keep in mind that trying to cover up odors with a stronger scent might even backfire if the buyer doesn’t like the smell or lavender or artificial citrus.
Think of it this way: You’ll probably want photos taken of your house when it looks its best because buyers will expect your house to look like it does in those pictures.
