What Does A REALTOR® Do Anyway? LISTING EDITION

Well, for starters, we do more than just slap a for sale sign up on your lawn. From a professional home evaluation and an unsurpassed marketing plan; to helping you determine how to get your house prepared for the market; and assisting with getting your home picture perfect, we prepare for your success. Here is some insight to what the JC REALTY TEAM brings to a real estate transaction before the listing even hits the market.

Effective pricing is imperative to reduce your days on market. Receiving an offer earlier means less stress and hassle of keeping your home “show ready”.

We don’t just compare your home to your neighbours; we complete a professional home evaluation. Knowing the upgrades that add value to your home and what the specific value for that double detached garage or that third bedroom on the main level is and how that reflects in the current resale market. Not to mention, we have the insight of specific market trends and what neighbourhoods are excelling in today’s climate. 

We analyze data from similar sold properties and have seen the competition first hand while working with our buyers. Properties don’t always look the same in real life as they do online, it is key to have viewed some of the comparable sales to truly know how they compare to yours. This is also fundamental for negotiating when that offer comes in. 

If you do the proper prep work, you will ultimately sell for more money and have more negotiating power.

We have a keen eye and will notice the things that need to be done prior to marketing your home; paint the hallway, wash the windows, maybe you even need to re-shingle. We offer sound advice on what renovations are truly worth your time and money.

We will advise you on what to de-clutter and what personal items need to be put away for showings. This will help you appeal to a broader buyer pool. Unfortunately, not everyone will appreciate that deer head on the wall or your beer bottle collection. 

We sit down with you to ensure that you are aware of how the selling process works and leaving the paperwork to us will make you feel more at ease and confident in your decision making.

First impressions are typically made online. The more people you appeal to, the more viewings you’ll get. 

We will help you get your home ready for the listing photos, hide the dog dishes and get rid of all the distractions that deter people from actually looking at the house. Your home will truly never have looked better, you’ll wonder why your selling in the first place!

We have an inventory of styling pieces that we will bring to your home to set the stage for the listing photos, ensuring every detail is perfect. Whether it’s rearranging your furnishings to ensure each room in your home is showcased to its best potential or adding some luxury bedding and décor, we’ve got you covered. And if your home needs more than a little fluffing, we can connect you to expert cleaners and stagers to make your home look  fabulous.

Increasing your listing’s exposure can lead to multiple offers.

We offer a professional marketing plan, define a target market for your home, and will market to that demographic. We use optimization tools to ensure your property is seen by the right people and bring genuine interest and engagement to your listing. This is via our modern and easy to navigate website and our social media platforms.

We work with our own client database and our agent networks. We know who typically works with buyer pools for a home like yours, perhaps they’ve shown our other listings. We will be sure to contact them and make them aware of your property. Consider us professional matchmakers. 

With the right professional guidance, you can set yourself up for a stress-free sale in any market. True to market pricing, effective marketing and ensuring your home shows to its best potential are the keys to your success. Give us a call and we can show you why it takes the JC Realty Team to help you reach your real estate goals.
