At Canuck Investments, we understand that putting your home on the market can be emotional, stressful and time-consuming. That’s where we fit in. Our top priority is you – and making the home-selling process as easy and painless as possible so you can focus on more important things, like packing!
Because we are intimately familiar with Bangor, Maine, we can help take the guesswork out of selling your home here. From setting a fair sale price to prepping your home for showings, from finding serious prospective buyers to managing the extensive paperwork, we gladly handle it all.
So, what specifically do we do as selling agents?
First, we will meet with you to get a better understanding of your needs and goals for selling your home. We’ll ask a lot of questions, including:
- Why do you want to sell your home?
- Is there a deadline for this sale? If so, when?
- Do you have an idea on listing price?
- How much are your outstanding loans on the property?
- Tell us about your property (type, size, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.)
- How much are you willing/able to invest in your home to potentially increase your sale price?
- What are you looking for in a selling agent?
- What questions or concerns do you have?
- How can we be the best possible partner for you?
Next, we’ll pull and share relevant research about market trends in your particular neighborhood – such as comparable (“comp”) sale prices in the past year – to help you get a solid understanding of how much your home is worth in today’s market, this is key to getting the best offer on your home. You don’t want to price it too low and potentially lose money, but you also don’t want to price it too high and have your home sit on the market. Our job is to properly price your home for a timely and profitable sale.
Don’t be surprised if we make a few recommendations on home-staging as well. While your home was perfect for you, buyers can be picky about things like paint color, wallpaper and flooring. Even the way you arrange your furniture can be hard for prospective buyers to look past, since everyone has their own style. We know what current buyers in this market are looking for visually, and we’ll put that knowledge to work for you.
What other aspects of the selling process do we handle? Well, everything! We will develop a comprehensive marketing plan to reach as many serious buyers in your price range as possible. We will create and manage all advertising and promotion (including securing professional photographs), using the most up-to-date tools and resources available. We’ll also schedule and manage all showings and open houses, and once we have a buyer, we’ll handle all negotiations with the buyer (with your approval), working directly on your behalf to get you the very best offer. Finally, we’ll coordinate all the necessary paperwork for the sale, so all you have to do is sign on the dotted line.
