Frequently Asked Question
We take into account such things as: size of lot, square footage, and age of your home and then use this info to compare other homes in your area that have recently sold and that are currently listed for sale. This data is what we call the comparables, or comps. This gives us a good barometer on pricing but we make one more final adjustment that considers special features or unique characteristics that your home may have. Together with knowing the market pulse in your local area we are able to accurately price your home to reflect a competetive price that entices buyers while providing you with the highest sale price possible.
We are always studying the local market as well any other event that may effect the success of selling your home. If the comps have changed due to a new listing or a recent sale in your neighbourhood, we will know about it - and so will you as we like to keep an open and clesr line of communication with our clients. If your home is not selling there are typically some tell-tale signs as to the reason why. Probably the biggest reason a home is not selling is that the sellers have not listened to our pricing recommendation and instead have wanted to 'try the market' at a higher pricepoint.
Simply call us! Other than that it is always a good idea to look at your home with an objective eye and do small projects around the house that you have put off. Think curb appeal. You are trying to make a great first impression so it's never a bad idea to start tidying up. Don't sweat it too much though as we will walk around your home with you and point out some items that need tending to. If required we'll order a professional stager to help as well.
There is no standard commission structure. However, typcially you will see something close to a 7+3% split between the buyer's and seller's agent. What this means is a 7% fee on the first $100,000 + 3% on the balance. The seller pays this, and the commission is payable to the respected brokerages involved in the transaction and is handled by the notary upon completion of the sale.
Both the seller and the buyer will require a notary at a cost of $1000 - give or take. The notaries shuffle paper back and forth, handle deposits, adjustments on pre-paid expenses, (like strata fees, property taxes, etc) and will have all the required documents from your bank so that upon completion of the sale your mortgage as well as any other charge on title (line of credits, etc) are paid. A notary also finalizes the land transfer so that upon completion the title of the land is legally transfered to the new owner. The money left over is YOURS.
