Gone are the days when a great open house at a well-staged home combined with a good pitch were enough to sell a home. You need to take a tactical approach to selling your home so that you get the very best rate possible for it from someone who is set to buy a house in Halifax. Here are some useful tips on what you need to do to get to that number your heart is set on.
Show off your best side
Every home has its best side. Rhonda Kennedy gets that, which is why she has used high quality photography to great effect.
Today, to compete with the best, it is important that your property is getting optimal exposure on social media and online channels too. Its as much about the marketing of your property and connecting with buyers as it was before, it is just that much of the process has moved online. If that seems like a tough ask, you can relax, because that’s something a quality realtor will take care of for you as part of his service.
Do your homework
Find out what the going rate is for other homes of similar vintage and design in your area. Work in consultation with your Halifax realtor to work out the right price for your piece of real estate.
Make a great impression
First impressions count. Since photographs of your home will be the first step towards getting your Halifax real estate listed, be sure you get it right. Clean up, de-clutter and move out any odds and ends before you get your home shot.
All the work on staging your home perfectly will come to naught if no one can find you. Be sure that you property gets onto MLS listings for Halifax. Your realtor can help by including your property in the regular newsletter or emails on hot new properties they send to their buyer base. Quality realtors take it a notch up by listing all properties on a state-of-the-art platform with an Online Home Finder tool. Buyers simply search and sort property listings as per their preferences, making it increase the likelihood that someone who wants to buy a house in Halifax matching the description of yours, will actually find it. And when a buyer finds a home that meets all their requirements it is far more likely that they will be willing to pay more for it and meet your price.
Leave it to the pros
Clinching the deal for you takes the skill of a good realtor. Once you have helped work out the basics including a price that you are happy with, leave the rest to Rhonda Kennedy. Her decades of experience, close association with the neighbourhoods of Greater Halifax and expertise in real estate make her the perfect person for the job.
