Are You Thinking of Selling Your Home?

Are you stressing out because it's time to sell your home? Putting your Calgary home for sale and exposing it to the market can be one of the most overwhelming experiences you will have, however, there are ways to reduce your stress and survive the experience. 

Should You Sell Your Own Home to Save a Real Estate Commission?Many sellers think "I can sell my home myself" and save money by not paying a real estate commission. This for sale by owner process is called FSBO. If you are one of those people, think again. There are many things to consider about the process like, “Do I have time to be around for every showing? Do I really want to be the one negotiating with someone who really doesn’t want to pay my asking price?" How will you feel when you hear a comment like, “What were they thinking when they designed that room?”  All too often comments like this influence the direction of a sale, leave the potential buyer and the seller exasperated and ultimately result in no sale. 


Calgary Property Assessment & Home Evaluation

The most common mistake that sellers make is pricing their home too high and the property ends up sitting on the market too long. Most sellers are emotionally connected to their home and typically believe it is worth much more than the current city of Calgary Property Assessment. Use an experienced Calgary Realtor® who knows the market, can critique the condition of your home and give you a proper home evaluation.  You need someone who can be objective with your home and give you a realistic selling price that buyer's in today's market will pay. 


Negotiation is the Key

You may not realize it, but selling a home is a business transaction.  Most sellers are not negotiation experts since they aren't dealing with this in their Selling Your Home by FSBO - For Sale by Ownerevery day job. A real estate transaction is a process that involves three major areas of negotiating: the initial offer, the back-and-forth counter-offers and the condition period that involves inspections and possible further price reductions because of deficiencies. Then, heaven forbid, there is the possibility that something may go sideways on possession day. This is where a master skilled negotiator working for you becomes a must!
