Home buyer cash, Buy house fast, Sell house without agentHow do I sell my home in Montreal?

Here are a few tips to help you prepare your home for sale if you’re looking to fetch the highest price imaginable:

*Note : these instructions are designed to help you make a full-price sale by selling your home to a private individual. However, if you don’t feel like doing the things described below, or don’t have the time/money to do them, you can still sell your Montreal home quickly at a fair price, thanks to a sales process that saves you time and money.

1) Clean, wash, scrub. Even unoccupied houses become dirty and dusty. So they need to be maintained! Nothing less than perfection is required to impress potential buyers. If you’re not obsessed with cleanliness and tidiness, hire someone to help you until you’ve sold.

If you’re more the stalker type, you might be able to live elsewhere while the house is advertised for sale. Maybe you can convince your most organized friend to swap houses with you for a few weeks? No kidding, keeping the house perfectly clean at all times really does make visitors feel more comfortable. Nothing is more effective at preventing someone from buying something than disgusting them.

2) Establish a neutral, consistent style. You don’t need to repaint everything white. In fact, subtle colors can make all the difference in terms of spatial perception. A soft yellow, for example, will brighten up a dark kitchen, while a dark blue or green will add a soothing touch to a well-lit room. (But beware: dark colors can make the room seem smaller).

Don’t hesitate to spend on good-quality paint and on paying professionals to apply it. Without realizing it, people tend to offer more for a clean house with the right colors applied. It makes the house look better built, even if it’s just paint.

Optical illusions seem very real. Psychologists study this kind of thing. Don’t you believe me?

Look it up on the net. And don’t overlook the importance of taking care of your outward appearance.

3) Repair or replace anything broken. Putting an extra $200 on a dishwasher that will probably be unplugged and replaced by the buyer can seem like money down the drain. However, many buyers will take advantage of the inspection results to negotiate downwards. As a seller, you’ll probably end up paying more if you try to hide what’s been poorly maintained from your buyer – and you wouldn’t want to be accused of fraud.

Make sure you obey all laws.

It’s also a good idea to hire an inspector to come and look at your property before advertising it for sale on the market. If you ask him in advance, he’ll probably only charge you a small fee to come and reassess after you’ve carried out some minor work, and offer you a paper certifying that your property is in good health. Potential buyers love to receive a full report on the condition of a property they’re interested in; it makes them feel more comfortable about making that big purchase.

4) Only carry out work that is absolutely necessary. The biggest mistake homeowners make when preparing their home for sale is to overdo the work. They spend too much on details and fail to recoup their investment when they sell.

Painting is the only investment that’s guaranteed to pay off,
but it’s easy to overspend on everything else and get screwed by an unscrupulous contractor.

It’s important to know what types of work will turn a profit, to avoid wasting our funds.

You should at least contact a few agents to help you determine what price to advertise your property at, but you should always be honest with them. If you’re planning to advertise your property for sale yourself, don’t make unnecessary enemies by lying about your intentions. Exceptional agents are rare, but they make more money for their customers than they do for themselves.

6) Create a flawless marketing plan. Exceptional agents add value to the sale of a property by taking care of promotion and dispersing advertisements to a variety of clienteles. Taking care of everything yourself can be expensive and time-consuming, but if you’re a marketing expert, you’re ready to break it all down.

If you’re not a marketing expert, take some time to learn what the best agents are doing to sell homes in the Montreal area, simply to learn more about your options.

7) Get a cash offer. We buy homes all over Montreal and the surrounding area, and do all the hard work for you. So you don’t have to worry about any of that.

You don’t want to do the work described above, but you still want to sell your Montreal, Quebec home quickly?

While everyone wants to get as much money as possible for their home, not everyone is able to do all the things necessary to make a successful full-price sale to a private individual.

Renovations, cleaning, modernization, promotion… All this is expensive and time-consuming.
