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.
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?
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
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.
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
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

- Put up lawn signs & design quality feature sheets.
- Marketing your home using traditional and innovative methods such as Social Media
(Twitter, Facebook, etc.)
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.

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
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

Theepan was our realtor for both the sale and purchase of our homes and we had the best experience working with him. He was very patient and knowledgeable about the selling and buying processes and made us feel confident about the huge decisions we made. When it came to selling our parents’ home, Theepan was very hands on during renovations and selected all the amazing finishes. As first-time home buyers for our new home, Theepan made the process very comfortable and ensured we found a house that met all our needs. Our family can’t thank Theepan enough for his dedication and great spirit during this process.
We would like to thank Theepan for his hardwork and being motivated in helping us buy the right home. He was dedicated and gave lot of his time by showing us many homes and options. We enjoyed working with Theepan and would work with him again. Keep up the good spirit, all the best for your future successes.
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.
Amelin both sold our home and found us a new one that we love!
Her expertise and calm attitude through both processes were greatly appreciated. She is quick to respond, a strong negotiator and asks the right questions to guide you along. Amelin’s persistence gets results while being respectful to all involved. We really enjoyed our time with her and will work with her again for any future homes we buy/sell.
I would highly recommend Amelin to anyone that is looking for a realtor. She works hard to ensure you get into a home that fits your needs, future plans and budget.
I had the pleasure of working with Amelin in the sale of our home. She was an absolute delight to work with. Amelin was involved from the very beginning. She guided us in ensuring we made the right renovations that would give us optimal value, found us great contractors for the work and made sure the house was on the market in the timeline we wanted. Amelin’s work ethic along with the Bespoke Team’s impeccable marketing strategy got our home sold for $400, 000 over asking in such a short amount of time!! We couldn’t be more happier!
I would definitely recommend Amelin to anyone whose looking for a hard working, honest and reliable realtor! With her humorous and humble personality you will enjoy working with her. She’ll become a trusted friend, which she is to us now.
I had many questions throughout the buying process and Theepan always answered them in a timely and helpful manner. He also asked the right questions to determine what my definition of a ‘perfect home’ (style, pricing, neighbourhood, etc. etc.) before making recommendations on prospective homes. I really appreciated his patience and availability – especially spending many evenings and weekends looking at homes in different neighbourhoods, different styles of houses, renovated/non-renovated homes, etc. until I found exactly what I wanted. I never felt any pressure from Theepan to put in an offer on a house I did not want. He is also very knowledgeable of the market and provided very frank feedback about the properties (pros and cons). I would definitely recommend Theepan to anyone who is looking for a helpful and professional real estate agent!!
It has been a pleasure working with Prez from Bespoke to purchase my very first investment property. As someone who knew nothing about the real estate market, I was very anxious about stepping foot into it, especially during the pandemic. But throughout the entire process, Prez has always been so responsive, reassuring and extremely patient with answering all my questions. He is very knowledgeable and always provides me with detailed information, tools and resources to help make informed decisions. He goes above and beyond to maintain ongoing communication about my next steps and to keep me updated on market trends. He is an amazing realtor with not only a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the field, but is also someone who is professional, caring and reliable! I would highly recommend Prez and the team to anyone without hesitation!
It’s been more than a year since my husband and I became homeowners. There is no doubt Theepan and his team are very knowledgeable about real estate. Both Theepan and Navi were easy going and very patient during the experience of purchasing our home. However, we weren’t thrilled about the process after closing the property. We felt an effort wasn’t made to maintain a lasting client-realtor relationship. It was kind of an abrupt end with some attempts. Honestly, a simple thank you note would of suffice. This was the only element lacking, and would have tied in to make the experience great.
When i was looking for a rental property in the GTA, Prez was very knowledgeable and understood my wants/needs and executed it accurately, and a timely manner. He was also willing to help no matter the question as long as it is relates to real estate, and i was amazed at his wealth of knowledge of the industry. Thank you so much Prez, for constantly going above and beyond to meet client's needs and for your professionalism. I will definitely recommend the services of Prez, and his company to family and friends.
