COMPARATIVE MARKET ANALYSIS

The best way to determine what you could reasonably sell your home for is to obtain a Comparative Market Analysis or CMA. With a CMA, your home is compared to other "For Sale" properties in your area as well as other comparable "Solds." The price is determined adjusting for such factors as condition, location, features, market condition, and competition. The CMA indicates a price range where your home could be listed and sold, as well as indicating how much time it might take to sell it.

When you decide to sell your home find out what the realtor plans to do to get it sold.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THE TOP FIVE REASONS YOUR HOUSE HAS NOT SOLD
  1. Price
  2. Location
  3. Listing agent's reputation
  4. Marketing plan and showing ease
  5. Condition
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
FOURTEEN DEADLY MISTAKES THAT WILL INSTANTLY KILL THE SALE OF YOUR HOME
  1. Over-pricing.
  2. Failing to prepare your home to look attractive to buyers. (Cleanliness is very important)
  3. Using hard sell during showings.
  4. Regarding lookers as buyers.
  5. Not knowing your rights and obligations.
  6. Signing a listing contract with no way out.
  7. Limiting the marketing and exposure of your property.
  8. Choosing the wrong agent.
  9. Trying to sell it yourself.
  10. Hanging around during showings.
  11. Smelly pets and odors (keep pets caged and out of the way during showings).
  12. Limiting access to your home.
  13. Failing to recognize a good offer.
  14. Putting your home on the market during a slow time of the year.

I hope this information is helpful. If you have any questions feel free to call Brian Braaksma, Sutton Canwest Vista, 278-9208, e-mail bbraxma@telusplanet.net.

SHOWMANSHIP HELPS SELL HOMES

We can sell your home quicker and at a better price, if we can stir the prospect's desire for your home by making it more attractive. To do this, here are some tested tips to help us show your home to its best advantage:

CURB APPEAL

o Cut grass, trim hedges and shrubs.
o Gardens weeded and edged.
o Pick up litter.
o Drive & walkway clear-snow, leaves, trees.
o Soffits & eavestroughs in good condition.
o Clean garage.
o Repair & paint garage and fencing.

WHEN THE DOOR OPENS

o Is the air fresh?
o Porch and foyer clean and tidy?
o Does the doorbell work?
o Door hardware in good shape?

CLEANLINESS IS IMPORTANT

o Clean and fresh bathroom and kitchen.
o Clean refrigerator and stove.
o Clean laundry equipment.

GOOD MAINTENANCE

o Repair and clean windows.
o Repair leaky taps and toilets.
o Clean furnace humidifier and furnace.
o Repair door knobs, sticky drawers.
o Repair seals around tub and basin.
o Repair cracked plaster, chipped paints.
o Repair burned out light bulbs.

LOTS OF SPACE
o Clear halls and stairs of clutter.
o Store un-needed furniture and equipment.
o Clear kitchen counters and stove.
o Closets neat and tidy.

CREATE A BUYING MOOD

o Try to arrange to be absent during showings if at all possible. Turn on all lights prior to showing. Have fireplace working. Turn off radio and television, or have some low volume tasteful music in the background. Open drapes in the daytime. Children and pets can prevent buyers from thinking positively-keep them out of the way, if possible.
