Are you considering selling your house in Markham this year? If so, now is the time to start preparing. With an ever-changing real estate market and new trends emerging every day, it’s important to be informed and up-to-date on what’s happening. Here are some tips and observations to help you get started.
Before putting your house on the market, it’s important that you do your research. Research the local Markham market, compare prices of similar houses in your area, and familiarize yourself with recent sales trends.
We (Benczik Kavanagh Real Estate Team) can help you with this when we meet for a free home evaluation. Our office is located right in your neighbourhood on Main Street Markham, our team has lived in and worked in Markham for over 30 years and we know all the selling features of the neighbourhoods in Markham really well and are able to communicate this to buyers to help you get the best price for your home.
First impressions are everything! When potential buyers come to see your home, they want it to look clean and well maintained. Clean up any messes inside and outside of the house, fix anything that needs repair (including minor cosmetic repairs like painting or refinishing floors), declutter as much as possible, and stage each room with attractive furniture and décor that appeals to buyers. This will make a huge difference when prospective buyers view the property. Benczik Kavanagh Real Estate Team provides a comprehensive home preparation plan for our clients.
Once you have cleaned and staged your home, it’s time to start marketing it! Working with a full service team like Benczik Kavanagh Real Estate Team, will ensure your home is professionally photographed and presented to the market. Your home will be marketed to millions of people through organic and sponsored ads on Instagram, facebook, MLS and more. We will make sure all of your advertising materials feature good-quality images of the property and highlighted Markham community features; this will attract more attention from potential buyers than plain text listings or poor quality images would. In addition, making sure accurate information about the property (such as square footage, number of bedrooms/bathrooms, etc…) is presented so that buyers know exactly what they’re getting before they come out to view it.
Selling a house is never an easy task – but with these tips and observations in mind, selling your house in Markham this year can be made easier! Do your research beforehand so that you know what kind of price range to expect for your home; clean up any messes inside and outside; stage each room attractively; advertise using good-quality images; and provide accurate information about your home and Markham in all of your advertising materials. Doing all these things can help increase visibility for your house while attracting more potential buyers – giving you a better chance at selling quickly at an optimal price!
