Your satisfaction and happiness with us is something that is very important to me. I understand how hectic it is to sell a house and it can be difficult if it’s not handled properly. Our goal as your chosen real estate advisor is to be there working hard for you and to make sure you get the highest possible price for your home in the shortest amount of time. We promise to be there there every single step of the SELLING process from start to successful finish and keep you informed of all that matters throughout the process.
With that in mind, I have put the Selling process in a 5 step knowledge base for YOU:
Step 1: Decide to Sell
When you have decided to sell, you want to get as much value as you can for your home. So the best thing to do is start off by having a candid discussion with us about your reason for your decision to Sell. When you sit down or have a discussion over the phone with us it is important to also have the mortgage balance ready with all your debts to see what you will end up with once the sell price is received. I do not belive in the season of the year is a decision on to sell or not, It all depends on when you are ready to sell that the factor comes up.
The biggest thing you need to do when you are ready to sell is to listen to the advice of us as a professional real estate advisor group and we will tell you by enhancing the appeal of your home will increase the value of your home and increase the chance to get TOP price for your home compared to anyother homes similar to yours which are on the market. We will go over in depth what should happen but in summary it all depends on the amount of monetary resources available. You can renovate your house by remodelling an area or just freshen up the walls with a new coat of paint.
Even just keeping your front lawn tidy can make a big difference. Buyers love seeing green grass and flowers outside because it feels more warm and inviting to them.
Home inspections are also something that you can do to prove the value of your home. Buyers will usually ask for a home inspection, so if you do it ahead of time it will definitely impress them. It also gives you a chance to prevent unpleasant surprises and make any major repairs.
Now you’re ready to let us work for you and for the for sale sign!

Step 3: List your Home
Now that you’ve decided to work with us, we will list your home. First we will value your house and set a price. A report on market data will be complied to properly value your home based on the prices in your area.
After a review of the marketing and advertising we intend to use we will discuss all that is going to happen; we will begin to discuss when there will be open house appointments as well to showcase the potential of your home to various individuals. Depending on the home itself, we may also suggest to stage the home to help these potential buyers themselves living in your house.
The moment we are honoured to assit in SELLING your home we start working for YOU!
Once we are representing your interest in the sale we start by first to market your home through various media outlets and listing sites to create strong buyer interest. We begin the process the moment you list your home for sale with us. We will start this by first posting on Multiple Listing Service (MLS), social media, blogs, and websites.
We start by putting your home on the MLS database. We then add your listing to our company's database of buyer agents across the the Century 21 world wide network. Then we send your listing to our own database of qualified buyers for your particular type of home in your area. All these starter points will expose your home immediately to potential home buyers and buyer agents to immediately be able to access your property information by computer, plus your property will be included in all printed material we put together to get a more specific range of qualified buyers to consider your home in their TOP choice of homes to buy. This includes us to publish in magazine and newspapers in the area and send out direct mail pieces to potential buyers.
The next important thing we do for YOU as our client: is to use our online marketing system and resources to make your home available to potential qualified home buyers and home buyer agents this home information available 24 hours a day and including holidays. Included in the online presence is our campaigns on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Youtube, Linkedin, Instagram, and a few other methods. This is an advantage that many agents just do not know how to properly implement as most just use the public mls and hope for the best- BUT it is the most important this be done for a home to sell for TOP dollar and within a short period of time.
From the MLS website, the Century 21 corporate and business website, and the JIM AMITOFSKI Real Estate Group website; we take the advantage of technology to a high level so we can immediately and directly react to each and every prospective buyer. We use many national and international online marketing presence to give your home the exposure it deserves. It is important to realise that from our website, prospective qualified buyers and buyer agents can get information about your home, at any hour of the day or night. Through our personal home search, your listing will be sent by email to every prospective buyer in our own extensive database and the Century 21 Corporate database of local - national - international buyer agents who just might think your home meets their criteria. As well, it will be emailed automatically to future prospective buyers as well.
Our Promise to YOU:
We will prior and during the listing phase ensure YOUR home is priced the right amount to be competitive to attract the right qualified buyers only and no "tire kickers" or so called "time wasters". This is very important especially if there are several other homes for sale competing with your home. The way we do this is by generating a full in depth Market Evaluation Report (Some refer to as a CMA - Comparative Market Analysis report), which will show you a range of prices of similar type homes which was paid for homes in your area. This report we prepare covers everything you need to know when we decide on the right price for your home. You can complete the online form to get a feel for your home’s market value.
Step 4: Receive an Offer
Not all offers and offer presentations are equal and that’s where the JIM AMITOFSKI Group comes in to play. We will help you get to know the terms and conditions regarding the price that the buyer wants to pay, financing conditions, or other things like inclusions and exclusions that the buyer wants to make. Depending on what the terms and conditions of the offer is we will work on coming back with a counter offer or acdept the offer that is presented.
Not only is it about the price of the home, but you have to carefully look at the other details included in the sale. Appliances, chandeliers, or even minor renovations can also be part of the deal. Shorter or longer closing dates can also be specified by the buyer.
Remember, if there is something in the offer that doesn’t satisfy you, counter offers or negotiations can also be presented to help get you what you want.
Step 5: Close the Sale
There will be closing costs associated with the sale that need to be paid either by or on the closing date. It can include mortgage application fees, inspections, moving costs, untility transfer fees, and legal fees. But once that’s taken care of, you can pass your old keys to the new owners. Congrats!
