Selling in Toronto
Selling Your Toronto Home or Property?
Toronto is Canada's largest selling city. You can rest assured that your house or condo will sell. The important issue is getting the best price when you sell your home.
Selling is more complicated than buying, so you need to be certain you are working with an experienced, skilled real estate agent. that is why we want you to know about our team's selling experience.
To sell it fast, and for top dollar you need to know what your property is worth today, and what changes you can make to impress buyers. Here is more information.
The single most important decision you will make with your Real Estate Professional is determining the right asking price for your property.
Once you've achieved a realistic sales price, you can count on your property being professionally marketed and promoted to bring more buyers to your door. You can also expect to sell your home for the best possible price in the lease amount of time.
It is a good idea to have a Real Estate Professional perform a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA, a thorough home evaluation) so you can see how thorough a job they do and how well they research the conditions that determine the value of your home.
If they rush it and ball park it - that's likely what you can expect from them when you become their client.
These are the items you can expect from a proper analysis:
• Value of Nearby Similar Properties Sold
You can expect an honest opinion of your home's value and an estimate of what it very likely would sell for based largely on these variables.
The following is a general outline of the Selling process in the Greater Toronto Area. Please keep in mind that there will be some differences for homes not in the actual city of toronto, which currently has a Land Transfer tax for some properties.
As a seller, your relationship with a Realtor is vital so meet with several before making a final decision. A good place to start is right in your neighbourhood. Check FOR SALE signs to see which Realtors are doing business in your area. Ask for a home evaluation (known in the industry as a Comparative Market Analysis), and see if they provide you with a thorough analysis and if they provide you service in a prompt manner.
This will be a good indicator of their service once you become their client. Choose a Realtor with experience and with an office that provides them a lot of support - which means they will have more time for you. Finally, choose an agent you feel comfortable with; one who will handle the sale of your home as if it were his or her own.
Your Realtor will help you understand the selling process. He or she will provide you with a full explanation of what to expect so you are not faced with any surprises along the way.
For example, one of the first things your Realtor will ask is, why are you selling your house? Your Realtor will also explore any time constraints you may have, your financial situation and any future plans. It's all part of getting to know you so the sale will be handled to your complete satisfaction.
