Selling Quickly without Compromising on Price

There are many reasons homeowners may need to sell their property — fast. Work relocations, changes in family makeup, and financial needs are among the most common.

If you find yourself in a position where you need to sell quickly, you don’t necessarily have to go to market with a temptingly low price. Here are some other ways to accelerate the sale of your home:

1. Make your property as move-in ready as possible. Get any needed repairs done. Ensure everything is tidy.

2. Hire the help you need. Getting a professional to do some or all of the prep work, will save you time. And, the cost may be offset by a boost to your home’s sale-value.

3. Use the latest staging techniques to make your home look great to buyers. Staging is proven to help sell a property faster.

4. Remove as many impediments to a quick salas possible. Consider offers with conditions. Be flexible when it comes to a buyer’s need for aparticular closing date.

5. Accommodate as many viewing appointments as possible in the early days of the listing. They may be inconvenient, but the more buyers see your property, the more likely you are to get a quick offer.

6. Make sure your home is marketed in a way that attracts qualified buyers, quickly. These are just some of the many ways to list and sell your property, faster, while still getting a good price.

There are other techniques that can be employed, depending on your listing and market conditions.

Signs of Spring Surge Sprouting!

As evidenced by a recent climb in freehold prices in March from February 2023, Ottawa’s resale market is stabilizing along with the interest rates. As condos remain steady due to their lower price point, there is more affordability based on the current interest rate structure. This is something that buyers should definitely be aware of. As for sellers, it is important to know that well-priced and well-prepared homes are selling and with the average days on market decreasing from previous months, buyers are no longer sitting on the sidelines and are actively looking to make those purchases.
