Time to Shine!



The first step in a success home sale is choosing your REALTOR®. I will help you understand the current housing market and be there to walk you through the process every step of the way. With this knowledge I will recommend a competitive price for your home and develop a strategic marketing plan to attract as many potential buyers as possible. If you are interested in selling your home contact me for a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA).


If you want to get the best price for your property, you may want to consider a few projects that could give its value a boost. At the bottom of this page we review several ways to improve the look of your home and increase interest and garner higher offers.  

Whether you're looking to unlock hidden potential in your home or just fix a dripping faucet, I can connect you with the right tradesperson to help you prepare your property for sale.    


Determining the right asking price will be the singlemost important decision in the selling process.  The closer the asking price is to market value will make your property:              

  • More marketable 
  • More favorable to the real estate community
  • Exposed to more qualified buyers
  • Receive higher and more offers
  • Possibly bring competing offers
  • Sell faster                         

Once you make the decision to sell, it's show time. What's next? Don’t worry, I'll walk you through everything, offering guidance and ensuring everything goes smoothly.


To start the marketing process you will need to enter into a Listing Agreement for a specified period of time. I may require certain documents in order to proceed with the listing.

The moment your home hits the market, there will be a flurry of interest. If the asking price is too high, it won’t take long for potential buyers to move on. By the time the price drops, a majority of buyers are lost and lowering the price down the line will likely not bring their attention back.


Price: Depending local market conditions, the offering price may be differ from the asking price.
Deposit: The deposit shows the buyer’s good faith and is applied against the purchase price of the home when the sale closes. I will advise you of a suitable amount based on the circumstances of the sale.
Terms: Includes the total offer price as well as the financing details.
Conditions: These might include “subject to buyer obtaining financing”, “subject to home inspection”, or “subject to the sale of the purchaser’s property”.
Inclusions and Exclusions: These might include appliances and certain fixtures or decorative items, such as mirrors or lighting.
Closing and Possession Date: Closing is usually the day the title of the property is legally transferred and the transaction of funds finalized unless otherwise stated. The Possession Date is legally 1 to 3 days after the closing.



Updates that pay off

Paint: You can make your home look newer and more spacious by painting the interior a neutral color.

Lighting: Update outdated fixtures to more modern styles with LED lighting. For a warm inviting atmosphere stick to 2700 to 3000 kelvin.

Flooring: A very popular choice for interior surfaces are hard surfaces, whether hardwood or laminate.


Add Value

Main Floor: Powder rooms on the main floor are very popular with buyers.

Ensuite: A Spa- like environment with luxe surfaces and updated faucets is a huge selling asset.


Best ROI

Steel: Stainless steel hardware & appliances are very attractive to new home buyers.

Makeover: Kitchen renos bring one of the highest returns on investment.  Choose comtemporary finishes with clean lines for the broadest appeal.


Home Staging

It is also possible to transform a home and elevate its value through styling. I can advise you on how to present your home in the best possible light. The last step is to create a warm environment for showings and open houses. During these times, make sure lights are on and de-clutter so the home is the most appealing to potential buyers.
