1.1 Why Sell?
The ultimate question you need to be 100% clear on is “Why are you selling?” Do you need another home with more space? Do you need something smaller? Do you want to live in another area or part of the city? Are you moving for Work? Do you want/need another school district? Do you want to be closer to friends and family? Are you moving out of Calgary? Your reasons may be obvious, however to make an informed decision it is best to consider the how this decision will affect for your family's lifestyle, social relationships, opportunities and finances. Having a clear understanding of your reasons for selling will make it easier for your agent to determine the most appropriate courses of action and options for your Real Estate goals.
1.2 When Should I Sell?
Establishing a time frame for the best time to sell will depend on many factors. If you need to sell immediately, hiring an experienced agent to guide you through staging and preparation for professional photos to get you market-ready is essential. If your timeline to sell is not urgent, discussing your needs with a professional will create the framework for them to understand your specific situation, needs and circumstances. Your agent will make some recommendations and together you can determine a plan to prepare your home for market, consider market trends and conditions and formulate a strategy to achieve the most favorable outcome for your situation.
