Much to Do.
Help is at Hand.

Selling or Buying? It’s all about questions. What’s happening in the market? Timing? Pricing? Neighbourhoods? What’s involved in preparing a home and its surroundings for sale? And on and on. All important questions and while your ‘to do’ list will be long, I’m your West-Side source – ready to help with the details and to answer the questions that are integral to the selling and buying process.

Selling

A BUYERS’ OR SELLERS’ MARKET?

Market conditions strongly influence the initial answers to the biggest questions. When to sell? At what price? It’s time for a walk-through-your-house meeting to discuss your needs and expectations, followed by my comprehensive analysis of your property. This will include property and price comparisons from current sales activity in your neighbourhood. An analysis will help determine the appropriate listing price, and the marketing strategy required for your property’s sale.

LOOK YOUR VERY BEST

Curb appeal. Descriptive, and so important in preparing a home for sale. And ‘you only get one chance to make a good first impression’. Seems obvious, but often the details are overlooked in preparing a home for sale. A de-cluttered, clean and organized home, inside and out, can make a big difference. Especially for would-be buyers who tend to notice everything. Don’t hesitate to call me for further detailed guidelines.

SELLING YOUR PROPERTY

My marketing program has been developed, refined and updated throughout my more than twenty-five years as a Realtor. Your property will be advertised; be a featured listing on my website (constantly updated); and profiled on many other websites, including the following:

WWW.MLS.CA

WWW.MACREALTY.COM

WWW.REALTOR.CA

WWW.REW.BC.CA

(if ads placed)

The Macdonald Realty lawn sign will be placed prominently on your property, unless signage is not permitted. Open Houses will be arranged around your schedule. Again, it’s a dynamic, proven marketing program that works. And it will be tailored just for you.

THERE’S AN OFFER!

It’s an exciting time, and I’ve always been proud of my ability to negotiate the best price when an offer has been received. Price, date and terms. Things move quickly. With subjects removed, and the deposit cheque in trust, our conveyance team takes over and ensures that the paperwork is sent to lawyers and financial institutions to complete the sale. Congratulations, your home has been sold. It’s time for celebration.

FINDING THE HOME YOU WANT

Where do you go now? Another big decision to be made. Is this the neighborhood for your future? Is this the home you’ve always wanted? Some have said it’s like a treasure hunt, and it really is. We can open the lid of the chest together to find that precious jewel. More questions. A condo, detached or single family? How many bedrooms, bathrooms? Must it be close to schools, work, shopping, special needs? The tour of a lifetime. How solid is the home that beckons? Structure, roof, heating, plumbing. And most important, is it affordable?

MAKING AND NEGOTIATING THE OFFER

Again, I’ve been along on this journey hundreds of times, helped my clients make the call, and make the offer.  Details include price, closing or completion date, offer expiry date, conditions upon acceptance. Guiding my clients in their selling and buying adventures is something I love to do.

For you, there’s never a doubt!
