Selling your home may seem like a daunting process. There is a lot of think about and many things you can do to improve your chances of selling. But it doesn’t have to be stressful. I make sure I keep on top of the market and look for opportunities, so you don’t have to. Here are some tips to make selling in 2019 easier.
You may not be surprised to hear that in 2019, 45% of buyers in Canada are expected to be millennials. By keeping this at the forefront of your mind when you’re selling your property, you will get better results. Most young buyers will conduct their house hunt mainly online, which means you need to create a digital impression that stands out from the crowd. Millennials tend to prefer bolder colours and are prepared to do their own renovations.
Improve your online presence
With younger generation buyers on the rise, you really need to think about creative ways of building your online presence. Video and virtual tours allow buyers to take a look inside your property and get an idea of the space without having to go to an open house. You can help them to narrow down the search which means only serious buys will come to view the house. This will help you to close the sale as you’ll know your views are interested.
Focus on energy efficiency
Having a home that is energy efficient can drastically increase your chances of selling your home. When thinking about upgrades, find ways to make your home more efficient. Consider adding some energy-saving appliances or replacing your insulation.
You have probably already noticed that more and more people are searching on their mobile phones. Since most houses are found this way, you need to choose an agent who has their site properly optimized for mobile users. Don’t worry, I’ve made sure my listings are all mobile-friendly already.
Be ahead of the market
It is always important to research current market trends when looking at selling your property. The Whistler market tends to be fairly exclusive of the surrounding areas so you should focus your strategy on the local market. You should always be aware of external factors that could influence buyers too. Getting an early valuation of your property and having all the paperwork ready can largely streamline the process.
