You’ve heard that the real estate market in Montreal is hot and now is the time to prepare your house for sale! However, what is worrisome is whether or not you will manage to sell it at a great price and actually make some good money from the process. Here, we present to you some of the things you should do to increase the chances of selling your house like a boss:
Declutter the house
Decluttering the house you have been living in for decades may not be easy, but it is an important thing you must do if you want to sell your house for more. Remove anything that could be taking up unnecessary space, get rid of any kind of junk and tidy up the closets so that every corner of the house is free and clean. You should do the decluttering before you actually put the house on the market.
Light up the house
It is always a good thing to have a lot of natural light in the house when you are showing it to clients. If there are affordable structural modifications you can do to increase the amount of natural light inside the house, then this would be highly recommended. However, if it is during the short days of winter or your house just wasn’t designed to have a lot of natural light, then you can combat the darkness by buying more lamps.
Price it correctly
You should know that the amount you price your house or condo should be based on the actual market value, and not some arbitrary figure because you want to make a lot of money. If you get the pricing wrong, you could end up selling it for a lot less or you could scare away potential buyers due to the high price.
