Determine a Fair Market value

This is a very important step that must be done right. Pricing your home appropriately can mean a quick sale and the most equity possibly in your pocket. 

To determine a fair market value for your property you can:

  • Use online home value estimators. This online tool is free of charge and gives you an estimate of what your property may be worth. You can locate estimators by conducting a Google search for them, or by visiting most financial institution websites.
  • Search comparable properties in your area currently listed for sale. If your selling your property using a Real-estate Agent, they will provide this data to you. If you are selling privately then you have some homework to do. This information will provide you with an idea of what similar properties in your area are selling for, and will provide you with a base price of what your property is worth. 
  • Hire a licensed appraiser. This will provide you with the most accurate estimate of the value of your property, however, such service comes at a cost.


Conduct a thorough walk thru of your property viewing it through the eyes of a potential buyer. Determine flaws that may deter a buyer and remedy them before listing. Pride in ownership is always obvious and will be noticed by the buying prospects. Minor repairs will reflect the fact that you have taken good care of your property.

Examples of improvements to make:

  • Complete repairs such as leaking faucets, loose door handles, doors that do not shut properly, jammed or sticky windows and electrical switches and lights that do not work properly.
  • Wall patch and repaint rooms that look tired. Always favor neutral colors as this is what buyers are drawn to.
  • Declutter the entire home, indoors and out. If you minimize the number of furnishings you have in each room, this will help to improve the perception of flow and allows the purchaser to see the actual rooms and not be distracted by clutter.
  • Ensure the entire home is clean and smells fresh.
  • Tidy lawns, well-groomed flowerbeds and surrounding shrubbery will add to the outside curb appeal.
  • Consider using a home staging service. Home staging is a valuable practice that prepares your home for sale by making it look its best to homebuyers. Staging can help you get more value for your home and will help your listing to stand out.


You have heard the expression “A picture is worth a thousand words”. What you may not be aware of is that a great picture can actually be what sells your property. Great photography is a surprisingly influential tool that has the means to either lure in potential buyers or drive them away.
  • Did you know?! Buyers Spend More Time Looking at Photos than Reading a Listing.
    Buyers spend 60% of their time looking at pictures and just 20% of their time reading the description of the home.
  • An excellent photo can grab and retain a buyer’s attention for 20 seconds. Without a photo or with a poorly shot photo, the buyer’s attention is reduced to just 2 seconds.
  • Property Listings with Professional Photos Get More Views. Listings with quality photos enjoy more views than those that do not have good images.
  • High-quality real estate images can help sell a property closer to its original listing price. It is wise to take advantage of services provided by professional photographers to ensure your listing presents better among other listings.
    • RequestViewing.com offers you contact information for some of the very best professional photographers in your area. You may search for this information by clicking on the List of Professionals tab.

Tips For Private Sellers:

  • Ensure buyers feel welcome in your property. If they can envision the feeling of property ownership, this may assist in their decision to purchase your property.
  • Buyers level of experience and personalities may vary. Create a good rapport right away and remain respectful and professional at all times. This in turn will establish a trust that will be beneficial to all.
  • Always provide honest answers to buyer’s questions and/or concerns. Give them an honest review of the home and identify any issues or costly repairs.
  • Accommodate your buyers. Realize that this is a major investment for the buyer. They may present multiple questions, request to view your property multiple times, or have special requests such as having their family pet accompany them at a showing. Be as flexible and accommodating as possible as any showing could result in the sale of your property.
  • Give the buyer space to freely view your home and allow them plenty of time to do so.
  • Encourage feedback from your viewers. Feedback may be valuable for future showings.


Negotiating is not always all about the sale price. Among the cost of property, you can also negotiate for things like the length of time to close, the period allowed for inspections and which of the appliances, if any, are included in the purchase.

Initial negotiations will likely be verbal. Once an agreement is reached, the Buyer is required to submit an official offer to purchase.

Finalizing the Sale

An agreement of purchase and sale ( also called “Offer to Purchase”) needs to be completed by both parties, once a buyer has advised they want to make an offer on a property. An offer to purchase is a legal contract between the buyer and the seller.

There are multiple sources where one may locate an Offer to Purchase form:

  • Obtain “Offer to Purchase” document on our website, under the resources tab
  • Contact a law firm to obtain the document
  • If selling through real-estate agent, they will provide the form.

Tips for Private Sellers:

  • Allow the seller approximately 24 hours to accept or return with a counter offer.
  • Limit the sharing of your personal information, between you and the seller. You are only required to provide the information listed on the “Offer to Purchase” form. There is no need to exchange personal information such as IDs or SIN numbers at this stage. Personal information will be requested by your lawyer at the time of finalizing the sale.

When the offer to purchase form is returned, the offer should include:

  • Buyers legal name, the name of the seller and the address of the property
  • The amount the buyer offering to pay (the purchase price) and the amount of the deposit
  • Any extra items the buyer wants included in the purchase such as appliances or window coverings
  • The date the buyer wants to take possession (“closing day”)
  • A request for a current land survey of the property
  • The date the offer expires
  • Any other conditions that must be met before the contract is finalized (for example, a satisfactory home inspection, subject to financing, etc.)

Thoroughly review the offer to purchase to ensure accuracy and clarity surrounding the details of the sale.

  • If the purchase price and all conditions stated in the offer to purchase are satisfactory to the seller, the seller will accept the offer by signing. By signing the offer, you have agreed to the sale of the property, subject to any listed conditions.
  • If the offer is not acceptable, the seller can negotiate a counteroffer. A counteroffer is a response given to an initial offer. A counteroffer means the original offer is rejected and replaced with another one. The counteroffer gives the buyer three options: accept the counteroffer, reject it, or make another offer.
  • If conditions are listed in the offer to purchase, they all must be met and lifted prior to the finalization of the sale, and within the specified timeframe.
    • Example: Purchase subject to financing or home inspection. These types of conditions CAN NOT be lifted verbally. The Purchaser would be required to submit a ‘Letter of Approval’ by the date specified on the offer to purchase, proving that the condition of financing has been met and may be lifted.

Closing the Sale

Closing day–the most exciting time. This is when the buyer will take legal possession of their new property. Closing on the sale of a property is a legal matter with a specific process, which will be finalized by both parties’ attorney.
The final signing generally occurs at your lawyer’s office, there can be cost savings if both parties choose to use the same attorney.

Your attorney will advise you of the process, but you can expect the following steps to take place:

  • All final documents will be submitted to your lawyer
    • Signed Offer to Purchase agreement
    • Mortgage Approval
    • Professional Home Inspection Report
  • The lender provides the mortgage money to the seller’s lawyer or notary.
  • The buyer provides the down payment (minus the deposit) to their lawyer or notary, along with the closing costs (typically 1.5% to 2.5% of the purchase price) to cover legal fees, land transfer taxes and other costs.
  • The buyer’s lawyer or notary pays the seller, registers the home in their name, provides the deed, and keys to the buyer.
