Fall is here, which means that if you’re about to put your home on the market (or if it’s still on the market after some time) then you’ll have to add an extra special touch to your property to get buyers ready to move in. The fall is a great time to start fresh with some inspired action and to spruce up your listing to get more viewings through the door!
Look At Your Online Listing
Prospective buyers do their research online and will quickly decide whether your property is worth the trip. That’s why it won’t help you if your photos are showing empty rooms, this a big mistake. If your property does not have a decent photo or no photos at all, your buyers will click away to the next available listing. Stage it, then hire a professional photographer to deliver those money shots! The more online listing photos, the better. Show off your property, its outdoor space, and the neighborhood at its finest. You should also have a clear, professional and concise listing description. You’d be surprised what professional sales copy can do for your property!
Bridge the Gap
Does the style and look of your property align with the market you’re trying to attract? Can the look and “feel” of the house justify your asking price? Chances are if your property looks like grandma’s flat and you’re selling in Toronto’s Yorkville or The Annex, it will be harder for buyers to imagine themselves living in it. Stage and showcase your home based on your location, target buyers, and listing price. Keeping this in mind can help easily narrow the gap between what buyers see and what they envision living in.
Hire A Professional
Whether it be a cleaner, photographer, handyman services, stagers, etc., all these professionals can help make your listing sparkle in the eyes of your buyers. With the tough competition in Toronto’s real estate market and its current market condition, working with the best professionals you can afford is a no-brainer. Many sellers tend to steer away from this option to save some money but this is not the time to be cheap, you only have one shot to get the best offer out there, so work with the right pros.
