In selling your home, a real estate agent can give you up to date info on what is happening in the Saskatoon market place and help you determine the best asking price for your home at that time. As Realtors®, we can also give you information and let you know the condition of competing properties to avoid overpricing as there are many factors when selling your house and overpricing can be detrimental. We have access to information and resources to get your property sold at the best price, quickly and with minimum hassle to you!
Before even listing your home, your Saskatoon real estate agent should be giving you advice on how to best present your property. They should also give you recommendations on small things you can do to your home to make it more saleable, often including repairs, cosmetic work, and de-cluttering. This will significantly enhance the salability of your home as we know how to ‘stage’ properties to make them the most appealing to potential buyers.
Your Saskatoon real estate agent should be marketing your property to other Realtors® as well as the general public. We act as the marketing coordinator for your property by advertising through the Saskatoon MLS, some of us also advertise in newspapers as well as other online sources. Open houses are also important in marketing your property. Advertising alone will not sell your home; however pre-qualifying potential buyers is something we do before allowing strangers into your home. Our code of ethics requires that we cooperate with other Saskatoon Realtors® to help benefit you, our client, therefore other Saskatoon real estate agents will likely be bringing potential buyers in to your home.
When you get offers on your home, an experienced real estate agent can help you objectively evaluate every buyer’s proposal without compromising your marketing position. The initial agreement to list your Saskatoon home is only the beginning of the process as there then tends to be appraisals, inspections and financing terms. There are many possible pitfalls which is why Realtors® are there to help you write a legally binding, win-win agreement that will most likely make it through the process.
Your Saskatoon real estate agent can help close the sale of your home through experience in home negotiations. We are required to show you every offer that comes in and we will discuss the pros and cons of each. We can negotiate to get you the best price with the most pros for you as possible.
Selling your home can be an overwhelming experience, so let an experienced Saskatoon Realtor® help you through the process. There is a lot of behind the scenes work that you won’t need to worry about if you list your home with a real estate agent. Besides the initial listing agreement and then with the negotiating and closing of the sale, you shouldn’t have to worry about a thing. Your Saskatoon Realtor® can help you if there are any unforeseen issues such as needed repairs, financing issues, etc. We are there to help you resolve any issues that come up and to facilitate the transaction and the conveyance of necessary paperwork to necessary parties (lawyers, lending institutions, etc.) We are here to ensure the sale closes on time as well as ensuring that possession goes smoothly down the road as the transaction is not complete until the keys are handed over!
