THE LISTING PROCESS: WHAT TO EXPECT
LET’S GET TOGETHER.
We will meet you at your home to answer any questions you may have,
do a walk-through, and discuss your timeframe and showing and
marketing preferences. Our Advanced Real Estate professionals will
prepare a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) by analyzing the prices
of homes that have recently sold and that are similar to your home

and your best interests from commencement to completion!
Preparing Your Home to Sell
Make it squeaky clean. A shiny and clean smelling
home will impress a buyer. Details like tidy closets and cupboards
enhance your showings. Clean those windows, capture those
dust-bunnies and don’t forget about sprucing up the landscaping and
outdoor maintenance as well.
Declutter, less is best! Try to remove as much as
you can from your home. This helps to highlight the spaciousness of
a home. In addition, it will put you a step ahead of the game by
being more ready for your own move!
Depersonalize. By removing personal items like
pictures, you allow a buyer to see themselves more easily in a home.
In addition, you most certainly want to protect your privacy and

MARKETING AND SERVICES OFFERED
DYNAMIC WEB PRESENCE
It is estimated that 90% of home buyers in North America go online
to look for properties before ever calling a REALTOR®. An aggressive
and dynamic web presence is most crucial. All properties will be
advertised on www.realtor.ca, the brokerage’s website
www.advancedrealty.ca, agent’s personal websites and many partner
sites like Kijiji.ca.
A home’s pictures are the first opportunity to engage and attract
buyers. We believe it’s not acceptable to have poor quality or only
a few pictures on a listing. We use the services of a professional
to fully showcase your home.
Social media plays an integral part in real estate advertising.
Listings are posted on the brokerage’s social media as well as the
individual agent’s. E-marketing through geo-targeting is also used
to help expand the reach through paid social media
Professional quality flyers are created and used on an as-needed
These will be done on a discretional basis due to COVID-19
restrictions and safety measurements required. Virtual Open Houses
are now being used as a safe alternative.
THE OFFER PROCESS
Never before has it been a better time to sell your home. With the
current conditions in this market, holding offers is a common-sense
strategy and can be a great strategy for maximizing the sale price
of your home
Multiple offers are more common today, often driving the price up for
your home. Keep in mind every sale is unique, and not every home
receives multiple offers.
We will guide you through the language of the offer, step by step, to
ensure the details are accurate and you understand the offer.
With any offer, your choices are to reject it, accept it or sign it
back to the buyer as a counter-offer.
When you accept a suitable offer, you have formed a legally binding
contract to sell your home subject to any conditions. All parties,
including your lawyer, will receive copies, and the transaction is
completed in the coming days or weeks.

Unless you regularly work in real estate, you may not be aware of all
the processes and third parties involved in a real estate

Community involvement is very important to our team. For the past
several years our team at Advanced Realty Solutions has been heavily
involved with volunteering at United Way. As REALTORS®, we interact
with a lot of our community. When we started working with United Way
as volunteers, we saw first-hand how they are taking action within
our community and confronting #UNIGNORABLE issues.” In 2019 we were
proud to be the first business to act as Campaign Chairs of United
Way, Chatham-Kent. As a team, we were able to lean on each other and
the community for support. We were incredibly active trekking all
across Chatham-Kent to talk about United Way’s involvement in the
community, listening to the businesses’ and individual’s hopes for
this community, selling Kids Future 50/50 draw tickets, volunteering
for numerous fundraising and functions, and challenging people to
join us in being Change Makers.
Also, in 2019, we launched our new program, “Commission for a Cause.”
This initiative involved our Realtor team donating their time and
the selling commission of a local home towards the United Way of
Other community involvement includes participation with the
following organizations and charities: Habitat for Humanity, Heart &
Stroke Foundation, Young Professionals of Chatham-Kent, OSPCA, The
Women’s Shelter, Howard Mutual Insurance, Confederation IODE,
Ridgetown Curling Club, Firefest, Relay for Life, United Way and
sponsorship of various athletic teams.
