10 Steps to Selling Like a Pro


Selling your home can be very emotional and at times a very intensive process.  When you are ready to sell, make sure you are informed.  Being informed can save you precious time and money.  Below, you will find a list of topics that you should be aware of when selling your home.  Be sure to take a read and send us a quick message if you have any further questions.





STEP 1

THE TALK


Just like buying, there are many factors involved with deciding to sell.  We’ll sit down with you and go through the reasons and motivation for you to sell.  To start you off, here are some pointers:


  • Why do you want to sell?
  • Is it the right time?
  • Is it a seller’s market?
  • Need to sell now or can you wait?
  • How flexible are you, in terms of when to sell?
  • Is your house ready to be sold as is?

STEP 2

THE DECISION

​​

After our meeting, you should have all the information you need to help you decide on what you want to do next.


  • Sleep on it, and think about what you’d like to do
  • Make the right decision
  • Weigh out the pros and cons

STEP 3

THE EVALUATION

We will help you determine the value of your home using current market data and in-depth analysis.


  • How much is your home worth in the current market?
  • Get an appraisal
  • Comparative Market Analysis
  • Will you be doing any renovation work prior to selling?
  • This can positively impact the value of your home.

STEP 4

THE FIXER UPPER​​

Everyone has their own reasoning for wanting to sell, but the one factor that’s the same across the board is wanting to get as much as you can for your home.


  • Do you want to do renovations to make it more appealing?
  • Picking renovations based on return on investment
  • Do you need to enhance your curb appeal?
  • Have you had a home inspection done?

  • Keep your receipts and record any repairs done

STEP 5

THE STRATEGY

​​

Now you’ve decided to sell, you got a market evaluation done and your home meets curb appeal – let’s crunch some numbers. As your agents, we’ll help you with:


  • A plan of action for selling your home
  • Determining an effective listing price and strategy
  • Personalized marketing plan

STEP 6

THE LISTING


This is more than just sticking a sign on your lawn and putting a listing up on MLS.


  • Our digital marketing strategies include listing on MLS, a custom website & more.
  • Put up lawn signs & design quality feature sheets.
  • Marketing your home using traditional and innovative methods such as Social Media
    (Twitter, Facebook, etc.)

STEP 7

THE STAGING​​

Want to leave a lasting impression?  It’s as simple as creating a “live-in” feeling for the buyer.  The key is to have a potential buyer walk in to your home and they can already see themselves living there.


  • Staging your home: Putting the 3-D effect in action  — Declutter, Depersonalize, and Decorate
  • Prepping an Open House – a successful open house is bound to generate quick interest in your home

STEP 8

THE OFFER​​

Leave all the fine print to us — you have enough on your plate.  We’ll help you review an Offer to purchase and discuss all the details:


  • Receiving offers
  • Counter offering
  • Generating multiple offers
  • Negotiating deals

STEP 9

THE CLOSING

Knowing what to expect will bring you peace of mind.  It’s basically pay-day for the selling but there are still a few remaining things that you need to do:


  • Hiring a Lawyer — there’s a lot of money on the line and a mountain of paperwork.  You want to make sure you hire the right professional to take care of all the complex legal work
  • Closing costs
  • Discharge of Mortgage

STEP 10

THE MOVE


Although you might be leaving a home where you built a lot of memories, you are about to start a new adventure.  Here are some tips to get you started:


  • Updating your address
  • Transferring and/or cancelling utilities and services
  • Canada Post Mail Forwarding
  • Donate unwanted items to charity
  • Have a yard sale
  • Packing supplies
  • Call the movers

Awesome team! Helped me with my requests, and they have amazing service. Theepan (Real estate agent) Has been working with me to find properties for 4 years, and I have always had a great experience.

We had the privilege of having Theepan assist us on purchasing our first home. Having an agent such as Theepan guide us threw this process was exactly what we needed as first-time home buyers. He was patient and extremely knowledgeable. He understood our needs and ensured that we had viewed houses that met our strict requirements. Although the process of purchasing a home is stressful, Theepan ensured the process was one that was enjoyable and rewarding. When we found the home we liked, Theepan was able to negotiate the purchase price down to a figure that was in our budget.

We would recommend Theepan to any home buyer looking for an agent who is caring, knowledgeable and patient.

I can confidently say that my experiences with Navi and Majury have been nothing short of amazing. Their experience and recommendations have helped my wife and I sell our home for top dollar! Incredible customer service end to end!

My husband and I could not be happier with the outcome of the sale of our starter home and the purchase of our forever dream home. We owe our gratitude to Navi, Majury and Rohit for their knowledge and expertise in guiding us through this process. What we loved the most about Bespoke Real Estate Team is that it is true to its name; the experience was painless, and customized to our every need and with 2 young children and the complexities around COVID-19, this was much appreciated. Navi is extremely savvy, and has strong negotiation skills getting us the best price for both the sale and purchase transactions. Majury is patient and was very tuned into our needs for a new home, making the search enjoyable and exciting, and Rohit was meticulous, responsive and reliable at all times. We will absolutely continue to work with Bespoke for all our future needs and highly recommend them to anyone!

Navi was an exceptional professional in helping my wife and I purchase two properties and sell one in a short period of time. One characteristic that stands out the most is his integrity through providing advice with his client's interest in mind.

That said, on more than one occasion during our experience, Navi really challenged us to think and consider all options before making a decision. He could have easily provided us with what we wanted to hear in making an offer on a property that we wanted to act on in the heat of the moment. Instead he challenged us to consider all possible options before making a final decision.

One final memorable example of Navi's professionalism was his willingness to endure and fight for his clients. Navi was at the helm of an eight party bidding war for what would become our home. He was prepared, and kept us informed throughout the four hour process.

Because of his determination and persistence we came out on top and secured the property that we wanted.

Buying and selling a home can be an intense and enduring process, that is why we need professionals such as Navi to help guide us through the process with the client's interests in mind.

Thank you Navi for all your hard work.

Theepan was our realtor for the sale of our home recently. He was extremely knowledgeable, always professional, detail-oriented, tenacious, and intuitively customer focused. He was an absolute pleasure to work with! I highly recommend him and his team to anyone who needs an experienced realtor whom they can trust. As our family grows, we look forward to working with Theepan again in the future.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Majury. She was quick and efficient with finding us a rental when we weren’t ready to buy. She even found some good potential properties and helped steer us in the right direction when we were ready to purchase our first home. Majury went above and beyond and would recommend her to all of our friends and family! What a great asset to your team!

Theepan was very helpful during the process and throughout exhibited a high level of professionalism. As inexperienced home buyers he asked insightful questions to assist us in the process. He was committed to viewing as many homes as needed to ensure we found the ideal home. He communicated with us every step of the way, was always available, and explained all the details involved in the process - which we really appreciated. I would highly recommend Theepan to anyone who is looking for an honest and experienced realtor.

Theepan helped me buy my first property and I enjoyed every bit of it. He was very professional from start to finish and answered all my questions thoroughly (even my stupid ones:P). He was very patient when showing the properties I was interested in - even when he knew I wouldn't like it but he let me make that call. He quickly caught onto what I was looking for and found me that one! It was a true pleasure working with him. Thanks for you all your support getting me through that nerve-wracking process! He is not lying about the customized approach to real-estate!:) That's exactly what he does!
