No one wants to pay more than they have to when it comes to luxury Oakville homes for sale, but when most try to sell their home they do it wrong. It can be hard to do it on your own, and that’s why you need an Oakville luxury real estate agent that knows what they’re doing – that’s us! Once you experience what the Goodale Miller team can do for you, you won’t try and do it on your own.
First Buyers Can be Only Buyers
Sometimes you don’t want to take your first buyer seriously, especially if they give you a reality check. Don’t make the mistake of ignoring their offer. It might be a little on the low side, but we’ll work with you to help you figure out what the “right” offer is for your home. Everyone’s different, and it’s important to keep the market in mind.
Don’t Wait for Buyers to Point Out What’s Wrong
If there’s something wrong with your property, don’t wait until the last minute to fix it. You don’t want to ha e to give a buyer money off the purchase price just because a window sticks or because some linoleum needs to be replaced. Do it right, do it before you even list the home for sale and you’ll be able to get the right price for your home.
Keep the Home Uniform
It’s no secret that a lot of us buy homes to add cool little idiosyncratic changes, but these can cost you big when it comes time to sell. You need to have standard features like master baths, master bedrooms, garages, stuff like that. If you don’t you could end up with a lot of problems. The last thing you want to have to do is have an Oakville luxury realtor explain to their clients that all the “unique” rooms can be converted if they’re willing to put a lot of money into it!
Pricing Too High
We all want to be optimistic – but sometimes you can price yourself out of the market. You’re going to need to be very careful and price your home the right rate for your neighbourhood. That way you’ll be able to get the most out of your home. You can also price too low! You’ll want to work with us so you can have a comparable market price to the homes around you, a price that will attract the right kind of buyer for your home.
Make your home easy to buy, make it where they can find what they need. You should be available (or at least your home) for showings by your realtor or theirs. Make it so it’s not so hard for them to get what they need! You’ll need to leave a key or a way to get in for visiting realtors and your own where they can get it, and be available by phone in case potential buyers have questions only you can answer.
