“How do I sell my home?” is something we hear quite a bit of from people in #Vancouver.
There are really 4 steps required that we recommend following in order to be able to sell in Vancouver.
1. Getting your home ready for the market
You want to make sure if there’s any deferred maintenance to take care of that before putting your home on the market.
Decluttering and cleaning is an important step in this process. You want to be able to show pride of ownership because you do get paid for that.
Get your home ready by having the whole package together as this will have a better result instead of rushing to the market before.
2. Choose your realtor
Someone who is active and familiar in your local area would be your best choice —you should be able to trust your realtor.
This is a key area to want to make sure you understand as it can throw off the whole process. Come to the market with your home priced correctly.
If you require any assistance with pricing your home correctly, please reach out to us —we can help.
4. Create a timeline
Creating a timeline or schedule of when you want to have showings and when you want to look at offers, will create a system of organization not only for yourself but for others to have enough time to do their due diligence.

What are the best ways to add value to your home?
Whether you’re a seller or you’re a buyer, this may be applicable to you.
Are you a buyer?
As a buyer, it is always best and recommended to get something older. The reason being is you can add value to that you might want to update and enjoy it either for yourself or your future.
Kitchen and bathroom renovations typically go very far. This is a great investment for if you want to add more value to your home, and particularly to those important, key areas of the home.
However, if you want to do a nice refresh without spending a lot of money, one word: paint.
Painting will be one of the best and fastest big changes if you have a dark home, for example, and want to lighten it up.
White, of course, is a very popular choice of colour (if you want to call it a colour) that you can use in your home to refresh your walls. It will open up the room to make it look brighter especially if you have smaller windows.
Not only will your rooms look lighter and brighter, but white is timeless.
We’ve sold homes from the 70s and 80s that were done in white originally. Yet, even with an upgrade from the owners on the counters and backsplashes, it’s hard to tell what year the home is really from.
This is because white is always in style.
If you want to add value to your home as a seller going to the market, or as a buyer, a fresh coat of paint is always great.
Updating your laundry room, bathrooms, and kitchens will always bring you the most money.
