12 Tips To Sell Your London Ontario Condo

Even though houses in London Ontario are selling quite well,  36% of London Ontario condos and houses listed in the London area take over 60 days to sell or not sell at all!

To maximize your home’s selling price there are steps you can take to ensure that your home sells quicker, reducing stress and maintaining some control of one of your largest financial decisions in your lifetime.

Home not selling

Keep the reason you are selling to yourself and your Realtor.

Do not reveal your motivation for selling to anyone else because they may use it against you at the negotiating table. When asked, just say that your housing needs have changed.

Different goals will dictate different strategies.

What is more important to you: the money you walk away with or the length of time your property is on the market or both?

3 Do your homework before setting a price.

The average buyer will look at 15-20 homes at the same time they are looking at yours. That buyer will now have a basis of comparison, and if your home does not compare favorably with others in the price range, your home may sit on the market for a longer time.

More Homework.

 (A good Realtor should do this for you) Find out what homes in your neighbourhood have sold for in the last 6-12 months, and research what current homes are listed for. That is how a prospective buyers and their Realtor will assess the worth of your home.

Maximize your home’s sales potential.

You may not be able to change your home’s location or floor plan, but you can do a lot to improve its appearance. The look and feel of your home generates a greater emotional response than any other factor.

101 Ways To Sell Your House in London Ontario

Deciding upon a Realtor

You and your Realtor are partners in marketing your home. Choose carefully and wisely.

Make it easy for buyers to get information on your home.

Buyers calling for information on your home value their time as much as you do. They also do not want to be hassled or frustrated because they cannot get a hold of the listing Realtor or some of the information is incorrect.

Do not move before you sell.

Studies have shown that it is more difficult to sell a home that is vacant because it looks forlorn, forgotten and simply not appealing. As well, buyers may think because it is empty, you are motivated to sell fast and for a lower dollar.

Deadlines create a serious disadvantage.

Don’t try to sell by a certain date. This adds unnecessary pressure and is a serious disadvantage in negotiations.

10 Keep emotions in check.

Do not be offended by a low offer or certain demands from the buyer. A good listing salesperson can turn these negatives into a positive situation.

11 Be a smart seller- disclose everything.

Be proactive, by disclosing any problems or defects you are giving the buyer confidence that you are not hiding anything.

12 Make sure the contract is complete.

Ensure that all terms, conditions and responsibilities are spelled out in the offer and that you fully understand them.

.do not sign anything without checking first

All the above steps , though simple and easy to do, are not often done, perhaps because they are so simple and easy to do.

From experience, my clients have commented that thoroughness in getting their house sold and the systems I use were outstanding! (Their words, not mine!)

How would you feel if you knew some surefire ways to prepare before selling a condo, if you knew about the timely steps to take, the questions to ask, the caveats to be aware of?

This unbiased real estate white paper will get you thinking and keep you on track before, during and after you list your condo for sale.

Here it Is!

 

Over the years I have helped hundreds of condo owners sell their properties and most, if not all, had fears, some had poor perceptions or even false information and all had concerns about pricing , how long will it take, what will it cost and choosing the right brokerage and representative to help.

In this report I prepared,  you will learn and read about the proven methods of getting what you want when you sell your condo in London and a few things to be cautious about and how to know and judge for yourself that the choices you are making are right for you.

Choices in Real Estate

Choosing to choose is a mantra that successful people have used for years which translates into the fact that all the results we get are from our choices!

If things go right or wrong you:

  • Chose the listing price of your condo (or you agreed to what your sales person said the price should be, but it still was your choice)
  • Chose the real estate person to represent you
  • Chose how you wished to be treated, responded to
  • Chose the condition of your condo when it is on the market, the tidiness, cleaness and upkeep

 

Why I Sell Condos and Do Not Just List Them, a Huge Difference !

The condos & houses we list typically sell for more and quicker than the average Realtor because of effective marketing.

We accomplish this first by doing a supply/demand analysis in the immediate area for any home we consider marketing.

All Realtors have access to the same market information; it is the valuation and experience of what that information means to the marketing of a home that matters.

X-rays mean nothing until they are evaluated by a competent physician. Similarly, knowing what the market is doing affects both the marketing time and value

Not sold yet in London

A professional champion real estate lister will not let you gamble with your largest investment of your life, will not give you false hope or convince you to take what could be a very expensive risk on your part.

A true professional will explain the pros and cons of the options available and if you choose that professional, your condo will sell for the market price in the time frame you want and you can move with confidence.

Again, choose wisely!

Once you understand these important issues, you’ll know how to price and sell your condo for the fastest, most profitable sale.  Also, with this information, you’ll never pay too much for any real estate you ever buy again for the rest of your life.
