February is the perfect time to start your search if you want to be in a home with a swimming pool by summer. Why? Swimming pools in Kitchener Waterloo tend to be added to bigger homes rather than starter homes. As a result, the buyer usually has a home to sell before completing the purchase.
Selling that Kitchener Waterloo starter home in 2016 requires preparation. Many move-up buyers are selling for the first time and need expert guidance for proper pricing, de-cluttering, staging etc.
Often, move-up buyers will find the perfect home first without having given much thought to prepping their home for sale. I advise them to take as much time as they need to do a proper job of preparing the home for sale.
Why? You only get one chance to do it right as there will never be more activity than when the home is first on the market.
