Tips for Speeding Up the Sale of Your Home  

Have you made the decision to sell your home? Here are some tips to help you sell it quickly!

Team up with a real estate broker

Using the services of a real estate broker is the first piece of advice we can give to speed up the sale of your property. Real estate brokers are professionals who put their expertise at your service to optimize and accelerate the sale of your home. They will take care of the marketing and promotion of your property. Your real estate broker is also responsible for preparing the necessary documents for the sale. To learn more about the role and qualities of a real estate broker, click here. 

Consult the directory of real estate brokers on Centris.ca.

Determine the market value of your property

One of the most important steps is to determine the market value of your property. If the price is overvalued, there will be fewer visits and it will take longer to make a sale. On the other hand, if the price is undervalued, you risk losing money or not making a profit. By partnering with a real estate broker, you are putting yourself in the best possible position as they are able to perform a comparative market analysis thanks to their access to other similar properties that sold in a specific area.

Maximize the potential of your property

The future buyer must feel at home as soon as they arrive, so investing in small improvements or "home staging" can have a very positive impact. Some rooms of the house have more value than others, such as the kitchen and bathroom, which are particularly important to buyers. Small jobs such as repainting walls or furniture, adding plants, organizing shelves, and especially cleaning from top to bottom, will make all the difference. You can also choose to invest in a new kitchen or bathroom, which could increase the price of your home. Do not hesitate to consult our various articles on these subjects for even more advice:
