Seller’s Guide

There are many reasons why people are selling in today’s market. Our priority is to always understand your situation and needs first and what is important to you. Whether it’s to attract investors buyers, selling your home fast in a competitive market or to create the right exposure to maximize your return, Wilson and Martin’s personable approach will prove to serve you beyond the ordinary.

Selling your home is a complex, multi-step process that calls for the expertise of a REALTOR®. There are many things you’ll need to consider, and to help you through it, here’s a general overview on what to expect and prepare.

Get Your Finances in Order

Don’t worry if you’re still paying off your mortgage, there are several options depending on what type of mortgage you have. You will need to talk to your lender or mortgage broker before you can proceed.

Meet With a REALTOR®

It’s important to partner with a REALTOR® you feel completely comfortable with. Don’t fall for the trap of partnering with the first REALTOR® who suggests the highest asking price. On the contrary, a good REALTOR® will not make the mistake of promising the sale of an over evaluated property because they know your time is valuable and potential buyers who are interested may be missed. 

There are occasions when we believe that it wasn’t the right time to sell a property based on our client’s financial situation, personal reasons or simply the market condition. We always communicate this to our clients because their best interest is of utmost importance. Just like how we expect the same kind of trust and transparency from our seller.

Listing Your Home

After accessing the condition of your property and with any renovations and upgrades you’ve done in consideration, we will prepare a comparative market analysis created specifically for your property. We will take the time to review the current market conditions, your personal goals, active listings and recent sales in your neighbourhood. Together, we will come up with the right evaluation to list your property.

We are flexible in the way we do things. We’ll accommodate your unique schedule to allow for open houses and showings.

Closing

Once an offer comes in, we will get in touch with you right away and act on your behalf to accept or counter the offer. Once we have an accepted offer, we will wait for the buyer to set up a home inspection time with us. Once the subjects are removed, you can decide on a notary lawyer to assist with the legal paperwork for closing. 

Congratulations! With the sale of your home complete, you can now begin looking for a new place.
