Seller's Guide

Selling your home is a complex, multi-step process that calls for the expertise of a REALTOR®, especially in Edmonton.

There are many things you’ll need to consider. And to help you through it, here’s a general overview of what to expect and prepare.

Get Your Finances In Order

Don’t worry if you’re still paying off your mortgage. There are several options depending on what type of mortgage you have. However, you’ll need to talk to your lender before you can proceed.

An expert mortgage broker can work out all the mortgage details with you. Finding a local mortgage broker in Edmonton is important, especially since usually, in-person meetings are preferred.

Meet With a REALTOR®

It’s important to partner with a REALTOR® you feel completely comfortable with. Don’t fall for the trap of partnering with the first REALTOR® who suggests the highest asking price.

Shop around. Find a local Edmonton REALTOR® who knows Edmonton and the local real estate market. A good agent can help you price your home to sell, answer questions like “When is a good time to sell?” and has in-depth knowledge of the market.

Start your search by checking if family and friends have a preferred Edmonton REALTOR®. You can also search online for the most reliable and professional one.

Visit your local real estate office. Pay attention to advertisements and For Sale signs. Read through their website like you are reading through my website. Find out who they are and what they stand for. Make sure their values line up with your values.

Listing Your Home

Pricing your home too low or too high is not an option. Setting a fair price will attract more potential buyers and give your home more exposure.

Your REALTOR® should be able to explain to you the multitude of factors influencing pricing, including competitive pricing, current market stats, and of course, the estimated value of your home.

Marketing And Promoting your Real Estate Listing

The next step will be to sign a Listing Agreement, which gives your REALTOR® permission to post your property on MLS (Multiple Listing Service).

They’ll then begin marketing your home through a variety of mediums—digital and traditional—and inform other REALTORS® (representing buyers) that your property is on the market.

Your REALTOR® can also help you prepare your home for staging.

Closing the Real Estate Deal

After the hard work of marketing and promoting your home pays off, you’ll hopefully have a few offers on the table. Once you’ve accepted an offer, your buyer will want to conduct a home inspection and (potentially) negotiate the cost of any repairs.

Finally, your lawyer and REALTOR® will walk you through the paperwork and legal bits needed to close.

Congratulations! With the sale of your home complete, you can now begin looking for a new place.
