Your Home Your Real Estate

Could You Sell Your Own Home? While it sounds pretty easy to sell your own home, the real question is “Should you?” Many people who try to sell their own home end up using a REALTOR®. Before anybody decides to fly solo through this complex, time consuming and financially perilous process, they should consider these questions.

Will you really “save” the real estate commission?

When buyers see a home “for sale by owner,” they see a bargain. They imagine the REALTOR®’s fee going into their pocket, not yours.

How many potential buyers will you reach? Selling a home takes more than just hanging a “For Sale” sign. How will you promote your home? Will you write your own ads? How will you use the Internet? MLS® and the corresponding website have changed the way people search for homes, and it's hard to court buyers without it.

Do you have the time? Promoting a home is a full time job, and you may already have one. Will you be able to take calls at any time of night or day? How about screening the callers to figure out if they’re suitable candidates? Not everybody who calls is even suitable to walk through your home, but how do you tell?

Do you know the market well enough to get the most for your home? Lacking years of experience, the average do-it-yourselfer is merely guessing at their listing price. Often they set the price too low and miss out on thousands of dollars, or they price their home too high and drive away willing buyers.

Do you have the negotiation skills to keep a deal on track? When an offer comes in, emotions can run high with so much money on the line. This is why direct seller-tobuyer deals often end in disaster. REALTORS® keep it professional and are indispensable when it comes to bargaining with buyers.

Work with your REALTOR Your REALTOR can give you an objective opinion of what you need to do. REALTORS have the experience and knowledge that can help identify problem areas or suggest improvements. In most cases, REALTORS will not suggest major renovations. A few minor repairs here and there and a thorough cleaning are usually all that are required.

Cleaning Up The Homestead Virtually all buyers are on the lookout for one thing — a clean home. Many will simply walk away if a home looks uncared for and, at the very least, an untidy home will fetch a lower selling price. Ensure your home is spotless and free of clutter. The two most important rooms in a buyer’s mind are the kitchen and the bathroom. Pay particular attention to these areas — they should sparkle and shine.

Making Repairs

There are certain items that must be repaired if there are problems. A leaky roof, for example, must be fixed. Any electrical problems will have to be addressed. Furnaces, water heaters and plumbing also fall into this category. Other areas may not need major repairs but will need attention. These can include leaky faucets, holes in window screens and any broken glass, etc. If some of your walls are too dirty to come clean, you may wish to consider a paint job. Carpets and rugs should also be clean and in good repair.

Outside & In

Take a close look at the state of your yard. If you are showing your home in the summer, trees and shrubs should be pruned and your lawn kept neat. In the fall, rake leaves regularly and in the winter ensure the walks and driveway are kept clear of any snow or ice.

Buffet/pup style restaurant $150,000 Nice ambiance, lots of parking, good lease in place, liquor license. Pizza/other take out place in Sidney $120,000 Good income, short hours, easy operation.

Usually, most renovations do not translate into an increase in selling price of more than the cost of the renovations themselves. Painting, wall-papering and modest landscape improvements usually recover their costs, but major projects such as new patios, decks or additions rarely do.

Moving Up Or Down If you are selling your home because you need more space with a growing family, or if you plan on downsizing now that the kids have left home or you want less work, your REALTOR can help. With access to the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) your REALTOR can provide you with list of homes for sale that meet your needs and your budget. If you have access to the Internet you can view all of the properties listed for sale on the Board’s MLS® system by logging on to This article is provided by the Victoria Real Estate Board.

“I hadn’t officially thanked you in writing for the wonderful service that I received from you. I found selling of my previous house very frustrating and time consuming. That was until I hired the right team.... the Ron Neal real estate team. Not only quick in selling my previous home at a fair price, but very helpful in finding me the perfect house that I’m in now. It has everything I had on my “need to have list” as well as most things on my “would like to have list”.
