The booming spring market is in full force this year as the seller’s market has set the tone. This means homes are on the market for fewer days, prices are driven up and bidding wars are not uncommon as home inventory levels shrink in Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville and surrounding areas.
Here are three market tips that will keep you ahead of the pack!
Set the timing right. To take advantage of the busy spring season it is best to get your house on the market now, before a wave of sellers lists homes in May and June.
Stage your home. Statistics show that a properly staged home will sell for as much as 10 per cent more than its not staged counterpart and is some cases 10 times faster. Effective staging can be accomplished quickly with the right professionals. And you don’t need to worry about hiring a separate stager. When you have the Rocca Sisters and Associates as your realtor, the staging is provided absolutely free.
Set the right price. Setting the price too high for current market standards can deter buyers from considering your home. Make sure to hire a knowledgeable realtor who can ensure your house gets listed at the right price.
