Selling your home can seem like a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be. To help you avoid the common mistakes sellers often make when entering the Oakville real estate market, I’ve put together a checklist of things you should consider to sell your property successfully.

1. Choose Your Agent

You need a team of professionals on your side. Choosing the right ones will make selling your home easier and less stressful. Check out the top rated agents in the area and meet with them. Choose the one that you think will sell your house the fastest for the most money. Follow their advice on how to make this happen.

2. Maximize The Value 

You want to get the most money you can for your home. If there are repairs that need to be done, it will be worth putting in the time and money to get them completed before the house hits the market. These jobs can be anything from a paint job to landscaping to increase curb appeal.

3. Purge, Declutter And Clean 

Less is more when It comes to showing your house. Not only will it attract more buyers but will make your move easier.

4. Depersonalize Your Space

Buyers want to envision themselves in the space.; that is hard to do when they are seeing photos of your family and pets.

5. Consider Hiring A Stager

Remember you only get one chance to make a first impression. A home stager will expertly display your home with furniture and décor, appealing to the broadest range of tastes.

6. Keep Your House Show Ready At All Times

Last-minute showings happen all the time. That means keeping your home clean and tidy all the time.

Remember, this is just a basic guide. Use the common-sense approach to preparing your home to sell. All this cleaning and repairing takes time and energy, but it will be worth it in the end.
