What Are The Keys

To Selling My Home For Top Dollar?


  • Price it right.

  • Know the difference between living in a home and selling a home.

  • Keep it clean and tidy.

  • Reduce the number of personal items around the home.

  • Get rid of things you don't need. Lawn/garage sale, Kijiji/Craigslist.

  • Your moving anyways, begin to label and box up items.

  • Store in corner of unfinished basement, garage wall or storage container.

  • Keep the yard clean and well landscaped, black mulch is a great idea.

  • Blacken the driveway.

  • Fresh paint, neutral, modern colours.

  • Consider staging. Market is competitive and the consultation is free.

  • Reduce bulky furniture, less is more.

  • Empty top shelves and bottom floors inside of closets.

  • Carpet cleaning or replacing.

  • If you have hardwood, show it off.

  • Bathrooms – remove toothbrush's, bar soap, get a new shower curtain.

  • Make it easy for showing.

  • Vacate for all showings, pets too, if possible.

  • Pre-home inspection.

  • Make repairs prior to listing.

  • Don't perfume the home. Open doors, windows to air out the home.

  • Remove litter boxes, sink or bathroom towels, mats, sports equipment.

  • If winter, keep driveway, walks and stairs clear of snow.

  • If fall, rake the leaves.

  • Don't take low offers personally, always be prepared to counter-offer.

  • Hire the right agent, that has a written out, reasonable, action oriented plan.
