Marketing home for sale in Mississauga
Marketing home for sale – You need a plan even in a Seller’s market
Selling a home in Mississauga is an art in itself, even in a hot sellers market that we are experiencing in 2016. If you want to stay ahead of the game, here are the two things you need to strike out of your list right off the bat – working with a discount brokerage offering a cookie cutter plan and trying to sell your Mississauga home by yourself (FSBO). You may well ask if homes are selling like hot cakes, then why not save money by employing either of the above two options?
There is more to understanding the current Sellers market than what meets the eye. Buyers are behaving irrationally and submitting offers way over the listing price for single family detached homes in Mississauga. While homes are selling fast, many deals are also falling through as the buyer is not able to honour the price he or she signed the offer at.
Why do home deals fall through after acceptance? Banks provide a buyer with a pre-mortgage approval up to a certain $ value. However, the bank will only approve final mortgage based on the assessed value of the home and not the sold value of the home (which these days could be $50,000 – $100,000 above asking price). In this situation, buyers have to come up with the difference between the assessed value and sold price. In most cases, buyers do not have that kind of cash or savings available, and have to let the home go (also losing the initial deposit to the seller in some cases).
As a home seller this may not bother you much as you can surely find another buyer in this home hungry market. However, this does cause a lot of inconvenience and loss of time. This also highlights potential risks for you if you are looking a buy another home after selling this one.
Marketing home for sale – Progressive and Proactive is the way to go.
A recent TD Housing report predicts moderate resale activity and price growth in the second half of 2016 in the GTA. This will be on account of more supply of homes and increased home buying capacity. The month of August is slow due mainly to summer vacation lull in the market. Beginning September is somewhat slow as it is back to school time for many parents. This slowly launches us into Fall. Having said this, there are buyers fore resale homes in Mississauga even in the dead of winters. So, your listing needs to be out there with full and wide visibility.
Harnessing the power of Internet is critical for listings in late summer for Internet never takes a vacation and potential buyers are constantly surfing the net to view new listings of homes for sale in Mississauga. There might be just that family searching the web looking for a home in your neighborhood so that their children can attend one of the top schools in Mississauga. There could be someone browsing the net looking to buy an older and larger property in expensive neighbourhoods like Lorne Park or Mineola to fully renovate or custom-rebuild for themselves, or to flip for a profit. Or there could be someone sifting through online listings looking for a detached home with a finished basement and separate entrance for a rental potential.

When you are ready to sell your home, the first and foremost step is planning your next move. You need to figure out answers to so many questions:
What will be I buy after I sell my home? What things I can do to my home to get more money when selling? Should I list first or buy first? Can I move my mortgage to a new home or should I pay it off and get a new mortgage? Who should I sell my property with?
You can be selling because of many reasons like: relocation, moving into a builder new home, downsizing etc. You don’t want to end up buying something without first getting an idea of your net equity (cash in hand after all your expenses).
