I NEVER FORGET YOU HAVE A CHOICE!
When selling your home there are no guarantees that a buyer will simply walk through the front door and make you an offer. In many cases Art may have to bring your home to the buyer. Effective marketing will help ensure that your property receives maximum exposure to attract a ready, willing and able buyer.
Art can give you up-to-date information on what’s happening in the Calgary marketplace, recent solds in your community and information on your current competition. These are key factors in getting your property sold at the best price, quickly and with minimum hassle. He will ensure your property is marketed well to maximize its exposure to other real estate agents and the public. He know's when and where to market your property to generate the most interest and potential sales opportunities. When you do receive offers on your home, Art will help you objectively evaluate every buyer’s proposal without compromising your goals. Throughout the selling process, he's always available to address any questions or concerns you may have. Choosing a real estate agent who has the tools, skills and experience to make your dreams come true can be as challenging as the home buying process itself. Let Art make it simple for you, call him today.
Sales statistics show that properties that are initially priced too high eventually sell for less than properties that were correctly priced in the first place. Also, over-priced houses can take months or even years to sell, while properly priced houses usually sell in a matter of weeks or even days. When selecting your agent, make sure that each Realtor you interview presents a CMA (or Comparative Market Analysis) that shows what he or she thinks your house is worth. The average or median price will likely be very close to your home's true market value.

Preparing to bring your home to the market:
While you don't have to keep your house 100% clean all the time, you should make any necessary repairs and perform all major cleanup work BEFORE you start showing your home. There are hundreds of small things you can do to make your house more attractive for a showing, ranging from drawing all the blinds and tightening loose doorknobs to displaying fresh-cut flowers and baking a loaf of bread. Most importantly, you should not be present during showings so that prospective buyers can explore your home freely. I can provide you with a checklist of things you can do to make your home more attractive to buyers.
