When it comes time to sell your current real estate, you want to make sure that you get the best possible deal on your home. The more money you get, the more capital you have to invest in other real estate. However, not everyone is a real estate maven. A lot of us are unsure of where to start or what steps we should be taking. We can help. Use this guide to selling to get an idea of what you'll need to do when you decide the time is right.

Spruce Up

There are hundreds of houses for sale in London for example, at any given time. Don't give your potential buyers a reason to choose one that isn't yours. Make sure your house is at its most impressive when you put it on the market. That means doing any repairs you've been putting off, landscaping the yard, making sure everything is clean and uncluttered, and reducing your personal hold over the house by putting away your identifying possessions.

Get Help

Unless you've got some real estate training under your belt or you've done a lot of research into the market, you should seriously consider hiring a real estate agent instead of a self-service flat fee company like the Property Guys. Real estate agents can help you get a handle on what your home is worth, get the word out about your sale property, and handle all of the negotiations and paperwork for you. Just make sure you're not paying too much in commission.


Once your home is on the market, you need to get the word out to buyers. If you've hired a realtor he or she will handle most of this for you, but if you haven't you'll need to do up an attractive ad for the real estate circulars and online databases. You'll also need to set up some signs directing buyers to the condo you have for sale and set up an open house.


Most people have a figure in their head of what they'd like to get for their house, but the fact is that not everyone has realistic expectations. That's why you need to be flexible and open to ideas. A young couple who is just getting their first mortgage in Canada might not be able to pay as much as a big corporation, but at least the young couple won't turn your home, which held so many memories, into a parking lot.
