SELLER TIPS

Seller Tips for homes in the Cochrane and Calgary areas


#910 - STAGE YOUR HOME

Depending on your budget, staging can cost as little or as much as you would like it to. Use items that you already have to cut down on the cost. Spend some time checking out websites, magazines, and even show homes for inspirations on how to display your home. Have a unique collection? Choose a few select items and use them as part of the showcase of your home. And remember, if it doesn't serve a purpose, the buyers don't need to see it. #sellertips #staging #shorts #casuallypro #dreamstorealty


#1008 - ADD A VIDEO TOUR TO YOUR LISTING

Potential buyers will often look at pictures first to see if your property is what they are looking for in their next home. But a picture is only worth a thousand words. And with the current market situation, it adds another layer for out of town buyers, or at risk buyers, to check out your property. Whether it is a 3D tour or a virtual walkthrough, more is always better when it comes to showing off your property. #sellertips #virtualtour #shorts #casuallypro #dreamstorealty


#1105 - INSIST ON PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHS

With the advancements of camera technology, especially in cell phones, you may tend to think that taking your own photos for a listing would suffice. But there is a lot more to real estate photography then just the right angle. Real estate photographers know how to produce photos that entice and are rich in color and depth. Hiring the right real estate agent you may find that professional photos are just part of the deal. #sellertips #photos #shorts #casuallypro #dreamstorealty


#1203 - LIMIT HOLIDAY DECORATIONS

Selling your home during the holidays can be a tricky situation and you don't want to forgo family tradition, but during this listing season, less is more. Give buyers the opportunity to picture their family home for the holidays by keeping your decor to a minimum. #sellertips #holidaydecorating #shorts #casuallypro #dreamstorealty


#1231 - HAVE PHOTOS AVAILABLE WITHOUT SNOW

There's nothing quite like a fresh blanket of snow to help your house look magical but a majority of the time, that's not it's reality. Provide your agent with some amazing photos when the weather outside is not quite so frightful to showcase the majestic property you have in the summer as well. Bonus points if you can provide all four seasons. #sellertips #seasons #photos #shorts #casuallypro #dreamstorealty


#107 - TELL YOUR REALTOR WHY YOU LOVE YOUR HOME

As realtors we see lots of homes, and sharing why you fell in love with your home in the first place, will help us to market it to your ideal buyer. Whether it's the open concept floor plan or the jacuzzi tub in your primary ensuite, let us know why you love your home. #sellertips #sharethelove #shorts #casuallypro #dreamstorealty
