How to prepare your home for a quick sale in Montreal

Set an appropriate selling price

Sell House fast, 60 days notice, financial recoveryIf you want to sell your property quickly, don’t be too demanding about its market value and what you think you should receive for it. Deal with a serious real estate agent who knows how to assess a property’s market value properly and how to advertise it slightly below that value in order to attract as many potential buyers as possible.

Bear in mind that the average buyer does a lot of online research and is well informed thanks to real estate agency websites. A perfect match between the price of your property and its size, condition and location will help you attract buyer interest and sell quickly.


Homes adorned with family photos and bric-a-brac accumulated over the years are not the kind that sell quickly. These cluttered homes are not attractive to potential buyers. Rent a warehouse for a few months and store everything you don’t need on a daily basis. It’s also the perfect time to clean out your house and donate and throw away anything you no longer need.

While you’re de-cluttering your home, be sure to keep passageways and hallways clear. You can keep a few well-chosen, neutral decorative elements on shelves and countertops. Wipe down bathroom surfaces and the medicine cabinet. Get rid of the old magazines lying around on the coffee table, and do the same with the clothes that have been hanging in the wardrobe for 10 years.

Store bulky furniture and particularly large canvases and works of art. Your objective is to lighten the decor to simplify navigation inside the property.

Once you’ve de-cluttered your home, you’re bound to find a bewildering number of dust balls and filthy spots! Take the time you need for a good cleaning. We’re not talking about the 10 minutes you usually take to clean up before your friends arrive. It’s much more than that!

Scrub the bathroom and kitchen until they’re spotless. Toilets, baths and showers should be clean and spotless. Sweep, mop and mop all floors, whether wood or tile. Have carpets professionally cleaned to remove stains and rejuvenate them a little. If walls are soiled, prepare a bleach solution and clean them. Make sure the house is well lit by cleaning the windows and opening the curtains.

When you’ve finished cleaning the inside, do the same to the outside. Clear the yard by cutting back overgrown trees, pruning shrubs and removing weeds. Mow the lawn, take care of the flowers and use fertilizers where necessary. Put away items lying around on balconies, steps or yards. It’s unfortunate, but potential buyers won’t excuse the mess your children have made.

Take a look at the real estate agency websites and see which types of homes catch your eye. You’ll find a wide range of property photos. Sometimes you can’t tell the difference between a bathroom counter and a pharmacy counter, or you think the kitchen is about to burst into flames because it’s so greasy. All too often, you’d think the backyard had recently been visited by a tornado! Would you fight for it?

Kitchen sell house fastCertainly not. But it’s not all about storage. Even houses that have been tidied up and cleaned from top to bottom are a step ahead of the rest if the photos taken are of good quality. A good real estate photographer will know how to shoot from the angle that will make your home look bigger and brighter, full of the vitality we’re all looking for.

If you want to sell your home quickly, you must first make it presentable and attractive to potential buyers.
