Time to sell clients on a fall listing

Kawartha Lakes Real EstateConventional wisdom holds that the best time to sell a property is in the spring and that selling in the fall is a mistake. But an industry analyst is telling agents that listing in the fall may yield just as good, if not better results.

“Outside of the fact that we have no idea where interest rates or the national and global economies will be next spring, the data points to a number of reasons Canadians should feel comfortable selling in the fall,” say Walter Melanson, lead analyst for PropertyGuys.com.

Among the reasons to consider asking clients to sell their properties this fall, Melanson cites the fact that September purchases have been on the rise, with the national average sale price rising 5.9 per cent on a year-over-year basis between September 2013 and September 2014. He also pointed out that last year Canadian home sales declined 1.4 per cent from August to September, but the number of newly listed homes actually declined 1.6 per cent in the same period – meaning a slightly larger percentage of listed homes were actually sold in September.

Sahil Jaggi, a realtor at RE/MAX Realtron and owner of Mink Homes Inc., agrees with Melanson that fall can be a good time to list, but has a warning: “You have to price it right in September. If you don’t, it will sit and the next thing you know it’s winter.”

Jaggi says September is the golden month, as anything sold in October will likely have a December closing date and “buyers don’t want to move in at Christmas.”

He adds that he recently completed construction on a new home and “planned it in a way that it was going to be listed in the fall.”

“People are busy in the summer, but in the fall I feel, psychologically-speaking, they are in a back-to-business mode.”

Kawartha Lakes Real Estate Library – Agreement of Purchase and Sale

The Agreement of Purchase and Sale is the document that is used to state the Buyer’s desire to purchase the property, and to negotiate the terms of the sale.  It is commonly referred to as an “Offer”. This document also allows the Buyer a chance to outline in detail all of the conditions they wish to be place in their Offer to buy the Seller’s property. After the Offer is Prepared and signed by the Buyer, it is presented to the Seller for Acceptance.  The Seller, in turn, may want to make changes to the Offer for the Buyer to consider.  This process can continue back and forth several times in an effort to reach an agreement.

7 Reasons to Use a Buyer’s Agent When Purchasing Kawartha Lakes Real Estate – Kawartha Lakes Properties

7 Reasons to Use a Buyer’s Agent When Purchasing Your Home

Purchasing a home is a big step, and a big decision. The average person spends around 1/3 of their income on their home. The home that you choose has a big impact on your life, and can have a big impact on your finances, as well. It always surprises me when Buyers attempt to “go at it alone” because of the possibility of mistakes. A good Buyer’s Agent is invaluable to a Buyer, and can be the difference between a wonderful transaction, and a nightmare.

 

1 Full Access to the MLS

The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a powerful tool that only Realtors have access to. When listing agents market a home for sale, they typically allow any Realtor to present the home to potential buyers, and to present contracts for purchase. The MLS is a database of all homes listed by Realtors, and represents roughly 99% of the homes for sale in any given market. As technology advances, so does the MLS. It has evolved into an extremely powerful search engine that allows your buyer’s agent to enter in search criteria, and returns only homes that match those specific parameters. Buyers can find a lot of this information online through DDF feeds available on many websites, but this information is a “watered down” version of the MLS because the DDF search engines aren’t quite as powerful, and don’t return as detailed profiles as the MLS.

 

2 Maximize Your Time

While driving neighborhoods is an excellent idea to help you decide which locations you prefer, it’s not a very efficient way to find your new home. Gas is expensive, and your time is valuable. Your Buyer’s Agent will listen to your needs, make fantastic suggestions based on your likes & dislikes, and provide you with a list of homes that match your wants & needs. Your Buyer’s Agent has helped MANY new homebuyers through MANY purchases, and will help you better organize your search & decision making process – saving you valuable time.

Selling Kawartha Lakes Real Estate for the Best Price

If you want to fetch the best price for your Kawartha Lakes Real Estate, you need to start re-investing in the property.

Selling Kawartha Lakes Real EstateHome sellers need to re-invest some cash back into their property if they want to get their desired price and in best time-frame.

That is especially true in the buyers markets, such as Waterfront Properties in the Kawarthas, where many remain on the fence on whether to take the jump.

“If you can fix the practical things that can be fixed, such as windows, roof or doors, then do it. Don’t worry about the aesthetics of the property. Sellers need to fix the items that no buyer wants to be left with after buying,” says Brad Nelson, a Kawartha Lakes Waterfront based Realtor.

Nelson says that the many buyers he works with are in “no immediate hurry” to close a deal as they believe they can now get a better price and property, and especially in a market like Kawartha Lakes Waterfront with so much stock available.
