Sell your home quickly to a home buyer, cash or with an agentWhy can’t I sell my home in Montreal? – 6 tips for solving the problem

1) Get a helping hand.

As ever, there are neophyte agents chasing properties in this burgeoning market, loudly proclaiming that they know what they’re doing.

But the truth is, they don’t know what they’re doing. They’ll soon be in for a nasty surprise when they discover the nuances of finance, how to structure a deal and the reality of real estate appraisals. Seriously, your real estate is probably the biggest investment of your life, so don’t let just anyone give you advice. For best results, do business with the pros.

2) Don’t make too many improvements.

Too often, we see properties over-improved by owners who have gone too far. Even with the best of intentions, exceptional craftsmanship and undeniable artistic talent, it will be exceedingly difficult for them to get their money’s worth. What’s more, most buyers will prefer to add their own decorations to their property. Our advice: get rid of the superfluous and think “neutral”.

Broken things scare off potential buyers. Prove that you’ve been a thoughtful owner by making the necessary improvements.

Don’t leave any gaps around mouldings or switches without plates. Have your property inspected by a professional inspector, then showcase his or her report. These little things will help you establish a solid bond of trust with your potential buyers and help you close a satisfying sale.

4) Think carefully about style and design.

The exterior is just as important as the interior, so don’t neglect one part of your property to improve another. Give the impression of homogeneity with impeccable styling. Paint the walls, improve the landscaping and, above all, keep it clean, clean, clean. You could hire a professional designer to give you a proper home staging.

5) Think even more about the asking price.

If you receive a large number of visitors, but few offers, your price is probably just about perfect. If, on the other hand, you’re doing your best to promote your property for sale, but the phone isn’t ringing, then your price is probably too high.

6) Don’t forget that every property will sell… one day.
