We work with stagers, painters, handymen and a myriad of other professionals to ensure that all of our clients’ homes are well prepared.

We recommend having a pre-listing home inspection enabling any minor repairs to be done before going to market. This eliminates unnecessary surprises and ensures a firm offer.

HOW TO MAXIMIZE YOUR HOMES VALUE
Sounds easy enough, right? And yet, did you know, in Toronto, through this incredibly buoyant market, only 56% of the homes that were listed on MLS actually sold? That means that a full 44% didn’t sell at all. Of the ones that did sell, the average price was 98% of the asking price. So how do you maximize that percentage?
1. Choose a strong agent
Ask for references
Don't choose an agent based on your house evaluation
Don't choose an agent based on their fee
2. Prepare your home
Declutter, cleaner than clean, touch up everything
3. Pricing your home properly
Make sure you see a CMA the day you list your home
4. Top Notch Marketing
Great exposure = great price
