THE BEGINNING STEPS TO

SELLING YOUR HOME

The first step in the journey to selling your home is simply getting the process started. You will be armed with the knowledge needed going forward if you start planning early.

WHERE TO BEGIN

Start to make a list of any questions you may have.

Think about the timeframe you are hoping to accomplish. Even if your move is months away, now is always the best time to begin your plan

Remember, you are not alone. Advanced Realty Solutions is here to guide you through the process and minimize the stress and pressure on you!

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 in size, features, and location. Every home is unique, and our professionals work with you, taking into consideration location, condition, amenities, and market trends, to help you choose an an intelligent price that will maximize your profit

WHAT INFORMATION WILL BE COLLECTED?

We will compile important details about your property, including a the legal description, zoning, measurements, age, construction, number of rooms, items that will be included or excluded, and “stand-out features” of your home.

OUR COMMITMENT.

The Listing Agreement is a contract between Seller and Brokerage that ensures you are provided with the highest level of professional service from our experienced and dedicated Real Estate Team Members at Advanced Realty Solutions. The Agreement outlines terms and conditions such as the timing of the Agreement, your chosen property price and Brokerage duties and compensation. Advanced Realty is here to offer guidance and minimize the stress and pressure of selling your home.

WHY US?

A key advantage of listing with Advanced Realty Solutions is our ability to list your home through MLS®. This ensures your home will be marketed to multiple REALTORS® and buyers, quickening the selling process for you. Advanced will arrange showings and offers while maintaining respect and safety for all. We will support you 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 your valuables

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.

QUALITY PHOTOGRAPHY/VIDEOGRAPHY

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

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 advertising.

FLYERS

Professional quality flyers are created and used on an as-needed basis.

OPEN HOUSES

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.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

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 Chatham-Kent! 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.
