Are you concerned that the market’s slowing down? Do you think you missed Brampton’s seller’s market and won’t get the price your neighbours got three months ago? If you answered YES to both these questions, you’re in the right place. As an experienced listing agent in Brampton, my clients first approach me with these two questions when it comes to selling your home. I’ve helped them sell their homes for the highest price in their neighbourhood and they’ve never been happier.

In the article, I am going to share with you 7 secrets of selling your home for 15% more in Brampton:
1. Remove all personal items
When a prospective buyer walks into your home in Brampton, you want them to imagine it as their house. Remove family photos, religious items, memorabilia, or any collection. Hide your kids’ toys as well. Repair nail holes and remove any nails that show.
2. Boost your curb appeal
It’s spring and all the superstores around you are filled with spring flowers and plants. Take advantage of the low prices and invest in some landscaping. A nicely mowed lawn and a few beautiful bushes around your house will do the job. The idea is to pleasantly surprise the buyer when they pull into your driveway.
3. Remove the clutter
Got a makeshift workspace next to the kitchen? Take it out. Store kids’ toys under the stairwell? Find another place to hide them. Maximise the floor space in your house and take out whatever’s unnecessary. Clean out the garage, if you have one.
4. Paint the walls, if needed
Any walls that aren’t painted with a neutral colour, need to be painted again. The idea is to offer a blank canvas for the buyers to imagine the house being theirs. An experienced real estate agent in Brampton will help you pick the complementary colours to match your decor.
5. Focus on your entryway
Most buyers make their decision within a few seconds of entering the house. A clean, clutter-free entryway is not only welcoming but also a sign that the home was kept clean all these years. Paint the walls and place a new rug in the entry. Add a few plants and you’ll immediately notice a huge difference.
6. Talk about your neighbourhood
When you list your home in Brampton, ask your realtor to include distance from amenities in the write up. For example, 3-minute walk to Metro or Food Basic. If there are any interesting night clubs or restaurants in your area, mention them too.
7. Hire an experienced realtor in Brampton for selling your home
Find an experienced realtor who serves in your best interests and won’t force you into anything. I’ve been hearing many horror stories recently about a realtor hiding problems with listings, forcing buyers to bid higher when they can’t afford the house. Interview several real estate agents and don’t hold back on any questions.
