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

TESTIMONIALS

We worked with Theepan on our recent purchase and time and time again, Theepan proves to be not only professional, but as someone who always looks out for his clients. This is not our first purchase with Theepan and no matter what we're out to buy, it's always such an immense pleasure working with him. We were looking at properties during peak Covid during March and April, and Theepan never failed to give us as much of the viewing experience as possible under the restrictions at the time. Theepan is so full of knowledge and always puts you at ease when you speak to him. We look forward to many more purchases with Theepan, and can't wait to see what the future has in store! Thank you very much for all that you do!

We know many real estate agents but no one came as highly recommended as Theepan. He made us feel like we were his one and only clients, with constant communication throughout the entire process and we felt like he always had our best interest at the forefront. He did not disappoint. If you're looking for an agent, you should look no further.

Amelin worked tirelessly to ensure I found a great property in my ideal area, within budget. She was professional, patient, and highly knowledgeable. Furthermore, she was well-versed with all property types (detached homes, condos etc.) across the GTA as well as Downtown Toronto. Don't take my word for it - give her a call and see for yourself; you won't be disappointed.

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.

My fiancé and I had the privilege of partnering with Navi and the Bespoke team in our search for a house. Navi is very professional, and really went above and beyond in assuring us that everything was in order, and providing us unbiased advice. Thanks to him and the team, we were able to purchase a property we truly love! If you are in the market to purchase or sell a property, I would highly recommend to call them!

Prez was our realtor agent from Bespoke. A great guy , helped us buy an incredible house in less than 2 months in Scarborough, Toronto! He's got some great professional skills, calm and knowledgeable. Easily approachable and right away attended to our needs when in doubt or question. Overall my husband and I had an excellent experience working with Prez. Would love to work again in the future if possible 😁

Theepan is not only a knowledgeable realtor, but also a genuine human. We have now worked with him on a few transactions and he always has our best interest at the forefront. He throughly explains the process to ensure we understand so that we have confidence in our decisions. He is also very responsive, even after the closing. He takes the time to get to know exactly what we are looking for. He has been very patient with us as we navigate our way through this market. Looking forward to closing on another deal soon! Would highly recommend!
