There are dozens of ways to make your property more enticing to potential buyers. For example, you can invest in getting your home professionally “staged”, which involves making it look a little like a model home. Or, you can do a major renovation to improve your home‘s look and value.

But what if you don’t have a lot of time and are on a limited budget? What can you do today to make your home irresistible to buyers tomorrow? Here are some ideas:


1. Paint

It doesn’t cost much to paint key areas of your home, like the foyer, kitchen or master bedroom. Yet the impression it makes on buyers is significant. In fact, compared to most other types of home improvement projects, painting gives you the highest payback when you sell.


2. Create Space

Homes naturally get cluttered over the years. Even a double car garage can seem claustrophobic if there are a lot of boxes, equipment and other items stored in it. Go through each room of your home and do a major decluttering. It will make your property seem more attractive and, when you sell, make moving easier too!


3. Clean & Tidy

Obviously, you’re going to make sure your home is clean for viewings. But you’d be surprised what a homeowner can miss and a buyer notices. Closets, laundry rooms, side yard, basement furnace room and all other nooks and crannies should be as tidy and clean as possible.


4. Roll Out the Red Carpet

Not an actual red carpet! But you do want the entrance way to your front door and into the foyer to make the best impression possible.  After all, those are the areas that a buyer sees first. Make sure walkways are clear and clean. Ensure that when a buyer opens the front door and walks in, the impression he or she gets is that of a great looking place to live.


These four tips don’t take much time or money to implement. Yet, they can all help make your home even more irresistible to buyers than it is today.

Buying or selling a home may be one of the biggest financial transactions you will make in your lifetime. It can also be a very complicated and frustrating process.You will need a professional to help you every step of the way. A professional who is highly trained, knowledgeable and has ethics beyond reproach. Your best friend in a real estate transaction is a REALTOR®, a member of your local real estate board and the British Columbia Real Estate Association.You can expect a great deal from a REALTOR® whether you are buying or selling.


When you are selling your home . . .

  • The REALTOR® you choose is working for you, the vendor, and not for the people who are the potential buyers of your home.
  • The REALTOR® gets paid, usually in the form of a commission, from a percentage of the proceeds of the selling price of your home.
  • In line with the strict code of ethics the REALTOR® must follow, he or she will disclose this arrangement to you clearly, fully and in writing.
  • The REALTOR® is experienced in the marketplace and can offer you expert advice on what price to set for your house, how you can make your house more attractive to potential buyers and what marketing plan will sell your home quickly, efficiently and smoothly.
  • The REALTOR® has contacts among potential buyers currently looking for a home. He or she can quickly separate the merely curious "lookers" from the "buyers".
  • As a member of the local real estate board, the REALTOR® can list your home on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS®), which gets the details about your home into the hands of thousands of potential buyers. Only REALTOR®S are able to list homes on MLS®.

When you are buying a home . . .

  • The REALTOR® will make it crystal clear to you whether he or she is working for you, the buyer, or the seller.
  • Special arrangements can be made so that the REALTOR® becomes your agent for buying a home. The REALTOR® is bound by ethics to disclose this relationship to potential vendors you may deal with.
  • With his or her wide experience and contacts, the REALTOR® can direct you to your potential "dream home" much more quickly and efficiently, saving you many hours and lots of frustration checking the ads and driving around.
  • A REALTOR® has access to thousands of listings on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS®).
  • The REALTOR® is usually paid by the vendor; this is the case whether the REALTOR® works for the seller or the buyer. When a REALTOR® working as your agent helps you buy a house, he or she usually is paid from the commission paid to the vendor's REALTOR®.

Whether buying or selling, a professional REALTOR®'s services can be invaluable. Their advice can save you from making bad choices and help make your home buying or selling experience a positive one.

Multiple Listing Service, MLS®, REALTOR® and REALTORS® are registered trademarks of the Canadian Real Estate Association. REALTOR® identifies a real estate practitioner who is a member of the Association.
