Overview of the selling process
Here are the key steps to selling your property.
- Get the facts - Comparative Market Analysis
We will prepare a comprehensive analysis of your property's value. This will include an overview of market activity, current listings and recent sales of similar properties in your property's segment of the market, a summary of commissions and costs, and a summary of our marketing plan.
- Determining value
As a conclusion to the CMA, we will determine a realistic, attainable market value for your property. This value will be determined according to a number of factors including: a) the reality of current market conditions, b) comparator sales, c) your needs and/or goals d) time constraints, if any.
- Pricing strategy
Together, we'll decide on how best to achieve the predicted sale price/market value with regards to your list price.
- Completion of listing paperwork
We will require a signed listing contract and standard forms to be completed before we can list your property.
- Initiate our marketing plan
Our marketing plan entails presenting your property in the best possible light and then adopting a multi-channel approach to ensure that your property is exposed to as many potential buyers as possible.
- Showing the property
We will show your property to our prospective buyers and ensure it is available for other realtors to show to their buyers. We will provide you with prompt feedback on all showings. If your property is rented, we will work with the tenant or property management company regarding showing times etc.
- Receiving an offer
When an offer (Contract of Purchase and Sale) is received we will negotiate the sale on your behalf in order to achieve the highest sale price.
- Strata documents (if applicable)
Many listing realtors ask their clients to pay for strata documents that are usually requested by Buyers. We will purchase these documents on your behalf, at no cost to you and will deliver them to the Buyer or Buyer's realtor.
- Subject removal
We will work with the Buyer(s) and their realtor to satisfy any conditions in the contract of purchase and sale, and will coordinate the removal of all subjects (if applicable) and placement of the Buyer's deposit.
We will help coordinate your legal representation and accounting (if required). All required documentation will be forwarded by our team to banks, lawyers, etc. on your behalf. On completion day we will monitor the transaction and make sure title is transferred to the Buyer and that you receive your sale proceeds.
We will coordinate the handover of keys and welcome the Buyers to their new property on your behalf.
