Selling a Property in Squamish

Published on

When looking to sell your property in Squamish it is important to understand the nuances of the local market and how that impacts your property.

Whether you’re looking to up-size or down-size, selling your home is always a tough decision, and must be done at the right time.

Each area responds differently to market factors so it is important to understand how Squamish specifically is affected by various influences on the real estate market. We have outlined some tips below along with things to consider when selling your home:

Research

The most important thing to do when considering selling is research. Look at similar properties currently listed to get an idea of price, along with exploring recently sold listings.

The research process can be very complicated and often confusing. With the sheer amount of information out there it can be hard to decipher what is really relevant to you.

As well as researching the market, you should also research local Realtors to speak to. Find an agent who you can trust and you know you can work with.

Speak to a Realtor

A Realtor is an expert in understanding the market and the current conditions. Speaking to an agent will give you a key insight into the decision making process, and they will be able to expertly guide you through the sale of your property.

Choosing the right Realtor for you is very important at this stage. Don’t be afraid to talk to more than one agent and find the one that works for you. After all, this is a big decision.

Knowing when to sell

Once you have spoken to an agent you will have a better idea of where your home fits into the market. Depending on your needs, the current time may not actually be the best time to sell. If the market is right then do not hesitate and take advantage of the conditions.

However, it is ultimately your decision when you put your home on the market. Once this is done, the selling process begins properly.

Selling your home

Selling your home can be a long and tough process, but with a good Realtor it should be relatively seamless.

Once you have hired your agent they will list your property and work hard to market it, along with hosting open houses and negotiating the final sale.
