Listing Your Home In The Niagara Region
Listing your home for sale is a major decision, and probably the largest financial transaction you
will make. Leave it in the hands of a trained real estate professional. There is much more to
selling your Mississauga home than installing a for sale sign on the front lawn. Please browse
through the information below which hopefully you will find useful when it is time to list your
The first step toward putting your home for sale is to meet with your Real Estate Agent at your
home. This meeting is referred to as the “Listing appointment.” Beforehand, it’s also important
to understand “who’s who” and how brokers may co-operate to sell your home.
The Selling Agent is an individual who produces a buyer for the property and divides the commission
with a listing broker. Such a transaction is considered a "cooperative" sale because the house is listed
by one broker and a buyer is provided by a second broker. If the listing broker also produces the
buyer, then the listing broker receives both listing and selling sides of the commission.
A Little Homework
Before the listing appointment, both the home seller and the listing Sales Representative have some
homework to do. While the home seller collects a list of documents requested by the Sales Representative,
the listing Sales Representative studies recent area sales of homes comparable to the seller's, and
also comparable homes currently for sale.
Your Home's Special Features
At the listing appointment, the listing Sales Representative will want to inspect the entire home and
yard to become familiar with its special features and exact floor plan. You have probably enjoyed
living in your home and have been pleased with its many unique features. Your listing Sales Representative
will want to tell prospective buyers about the special features of your home and community. Be ready
to be specific about schools, churches, daycare, nearby metro, and other desirable community features,
as well as home features not readily apparent.
Remember, prospective buyers will be "comparison shopping" and keenly aware of subtle differences
in homes for sale in the area. Be sure to tell your listing Sales Representative why yours is special, from
any home remodelling to afternoon winter sunshine.
HOW DO YOU ATTRACT QUALIFIED BUYERS?
When you list your house, it must attract the attention of qualified buyers eager to get into a property
like yours. Otherwise, your house may take longer to sell and you may not get the price you expected.
As an expert in the local market, I can get the word out about your listing to all the right people. I know
how to attract serious buyers – so a good offer comes in quickly.
To achieve that success, I’ll implement the appropriate marketing plan. After all, there’s more to selling
a house than hammering a For Sale sign on the front lawn. I’ll work closely with you to create a
marketing plan which may include some or all of the following:
- Taking pictures and gathering the details on your property;
- Writing a compelling property profile and creating effective marketing materials;
- Uploading your listing to MLS – the Multiple Listing Service that real estate agents and buyers use to search for properties;
- Placing advertisements in print or on-line publications buyers use to shop for houses;
- Showcasing your listing on my popular website;
- Leveraging the internet and social media to promote your listing;
- Scheduling and promoting an Open House to attract a multitude of buyers.
In addition, I meet with buyers regularly. In fact, the moment your house is listed I get in touch with
everyone I know who is looking for a property like yours, and encourage them to schedule a viewing. I
also tap into my network of other real estate agents so their clients know about your property as well.
My job is to get the right buyers to see your house, fall in love with it, and make a good offer.
