Are you planning to sell your Toronto condo or loft in the near future? Regardless of season or market conditions, remember that you only have one chance to make a good first impression. Make it memorable for all the right reasons. Before listing your unit, commit to these five New Year’s Resolutions to help ensure the quickest sale for the highest price.
Mark Your Calendar!
Set your listing date well in advance to help you anticipate, plan and prepare to sell your unit. The process of changing homes has a lot of moving parts and is a coordinated effort between you and Casey Ragan’s team of experts (i.e. mortgage broker, lawyer, home inspector, trades, movers… the list continues). This is especially the case if you’ll also be buying a new unit or home at the same time, as many people do. Reach out to Casey Ragan early on in the process to discuss your options, get important advice and get the ball rolling. Click here to contact Casey Ragan.
Repair and Replace
When planning to sell your Toronto condo or loft, assess its condition and make repairs before listing. Cracked drywall, stained carpets, burned-out light bulbs and other minor damage is easy to fix and won’t break the bank, but left un-repaired, could impact offers. TIP: It can be tough to evaluate your own unit. Have Casey Ragan tour your unit and offer constructive criticism. Find out which renovations offer the best return on investment (click here).
Three to six months before your unit hits the market, Casey Ragan will start scanning comparable listings to get a ballpark price estimate. Keep in mind that a variety of factors may affect your unit’s selling price, like square footage; view, and interior finishes; proximity to busy streets, public transit, gyms and parks; or supply and demand in the marketplace. Casey Ragan will assess your unit just prior to listing, to ensure you set the right price to attract serious buyers.
Cut the Clutter
A cluttered unit can suggest lack of space, which can impact offers. Depending on lifestyle and length of time spent in the unit, this can be a big undertaking. Take it step by step, room by room, and you’ll get through it. Be honest about what you want, need and love, and what you can do without. The bonus? You won’t have to pack, move and clutter your new unit or home with stuff you don’t want.
