There are a number of steps involved in selling a Vancouver luxury property, but there are six steps you should do even before selling. Luckily, I’ve put together this handy list for you, so you know exactly what to do!
The 5 things to do before selling your Vancouver luxury property
1. Have a professional Vancouver luxury property valuation
Before you sell your Vancouver luxury property, you need to know what it’s worth. The best way to do that is to have it valued by a Realtor. This should be the Realtor who you’ll be working with on the sale. Your Realtor uses historical data and current real estate market trends to provide information on the market value of your home. This can help you determine a sale price!
2. Have a walk-away price
You want to go into a sale with a sense of the price of your dreams, the price you’ll be happy accepting, and the price that would make you walk away from a sale. That way, when you do put your house on the market, you have guidelines to stick to and won’t get swept away in the excitement of a sale, accepting a bid that’s lower than you want.
3. Make any necessary repairs and updates
You always want to put your best foot forward when selling Vancouver luxury property. To do that, you need to make sure all necessary repairs and minor updates are taken care of before you put your home on the market. How do you know what to do? Your Realtor should be giving you advice about what needs to be done – and can even offer advice about who to contact to get it done.
4. Have the property staged or professionally decorated
Again, best foot forward! I always say buying and selling Vancouver luxury real estate is like matchmaking! Think of this as you would getting ready for a first date. You don’t want to hide who you are, but you would make sure you look and feel your best. Staging or decorating will do the same thing – but for your Vancouver luxury property!
5. Hire cleaners
All the work you put into repairs, updates, and staging or decorating can be undone if your Vancouver luxury property isn’t sparkling clean. Hiring cleaners will ensure that your property isn’t just clean, but spotless! All without you having to lift a finger.
Before taking on these 5 steps, there’s one more thing you need to do to get your Vancouver luxury property ready for sale…
You’ve got to hire the right Realtor to help sell your Vancouver luxury property! Your Realtor will have input about repairs, staging or decorating, valuation, etc. So you want to make sure you have your Realtor onboard before tackling anything else.
