How is the value of my property determined?

The value of your property is determined by what a buyer is willing to pay. To estimate the ideal list price, it is vital to consider factors like location, size, condition, current market conditions (Buyer’s Market, Seller’s Market or Balanced Market), community or building amenities, current interest rates, and local competition. The best way to gauge the approximate value of your property is through a comparative market analysis (CMA) by comparing it with similar recently sold properties in your area.

How should I prepare my home for showings?

For the best impact, your property should be at its best for showings. Both exterior and interior aspects are crucial. Curb appeal can be a deciding factor for a potential buyer even considering viewing your property. Equally important is decluttering your home and paying attention to detail. As your Nobleton Real Estate Agent, I can help you make your property most attractive for viewings, with my background in the design and build industry.

What will help my home sell quickly?

Even a property with great features and in an excellent location may not sell if it is not priced right. Correct pricing through market analysis and comparative sales will not only help you attract offers but also place you in a strong negotiating position. As your Nobleton Real Estate Agent, I can help you determine the right price for your property with a professional market analysis.

What does "Seller’s Market" mean?

A seller’s market occurs when the number of interested buyers exceeds the number of available properties. This scenario gives sellers an upper hand in negotiations, often leading to multiple offers, higher prices, and quicker sales.

What is a "Balanced Market"?

A balanced market is when the number of buyers and sellers is approximately equal. Such conditions generally result in fewer bidding wars and a more relaxed buying process.

What does "Buyer’s Market" mean?

A buyer’s market refers to a situation where the supply of properties surpasses the demand from buyers. In such circumstances, buyers enjoy more choice and a stronger bargaining position when making an offer.

What is the purpose of a listing agreement?

Signing a listing agreement authorizes me to act as your real estate representative to market your property effectively and negotiate on your behalf. A signed listing agreement ensures clear communication and agreement on expectations and obligations from both sides.

What are my costs as a buyer?

As a buyer, you typically won’t need to pay a fee to your real estate agent as the seller covers these costs. However, you may need to account for expenses like land transfer tax, property inspection, legal fees and disbursements, closing adjustments, home and property insurance, moving costs, utility connection charges, and any necessary repairs upon obtaining the property.

Why should I get pre-approved for a mortgage?

Pre-approval for a mortgage strengthens your negotiating position and helps you understand your financial capabilities before falling in love with a property beyond your reach. I can assist you in connecting with reputable and professional mortgage specialists.

What happens when I'm ready to make an offer?

Once you’ve found your desired property, I will assist you in drafting, submitting, and negotiating your offer. Depending on the seller’s response, I’ll take appropriate actions to represent you professionally and keep you informed throughout the entire process.

What does it cost to use a real estate agent to sell my home?

The standard cost of selling your home through a realtor is usually 5% of the purchase price plus HST, payable at closing. The potential cost of not using a professional, experienced agent can be significantly higher than the investment in a full-time agent who knows current market trends and how to properly prepare and market your property.

Why should I hire a real estate agent instead of selling on my own?

While you are free to attempt selling your home independently, real estate transactions can be complex and time-consuming, requiring extensive knowledge of the local market, pricing, staging, marketing, negotiating, and legal regulations. Without professional guidance, sellers may end up with lower returns or an unsold property. As most people consider their home their most significant investment, it’s usually best to engage a professional to help ensure a smooth, profitable sale.

What does "CMA" mean?

CMA stands for Comparative Market Analysis. This comprehensive document, which I prepare for my clients considering selling their home, compares your property to other similar properties in your area to help determine a realistic listing price.

Do you provide staging services and how much does it cost?

Yes, we offer staging services as needed. Leveraging my past experience in the design and build industry, I can offer expert design advice to make your property outshine the competition.

When is the best time to sell my home?

While listing during a seller’s market can be beneficial, other factors like weather, school schedules, and holidays can also influence the sale. Reach out to me to discuss your unique situation and needs.

Do I need to do open houses?

Public open houses can increase exposure and provide valuable feedback, possibly even sparking bidding wars. However, they are not a necessity, and the decision rests with you.

Can a real estate agent disclose the price of other offers during multiple offers?

Real estate agents are legally barred from sharing details of competing offers, including price, deposit amount, closing date, and conditions.
