We look forward to the opportunity to speak with you.
As Sales Representatives we have access to tools that allow us to pin point true real estate values in your neighbourhood and will help price your home competitively by preparing a market analysis of homes that have sold, competing homes that are still on the market and homes that were on the market but didn’t sell.
We will establish a marketing strategy for your home, ensuring that it’s exposed to as many potential buyers as possible. We will take care of the tasks involved in selling a house, ensuring that the transaction is simple and low-stress for you. We will advise you of your rights, options and obligations. We are experienced, trained and certified negotiators and will work for you to get you the best possible price.
The Andy & Paddy Team during COVID-19
While the world waits to see where COVID-19 will take us, we are here to support and guide our clients, friends and family, and will continue to adapt in order to safely provide service. Real Estate is deemed an essential service and as such we take our job and role during this time very seriously. Although all businesses have had to change how they operate, our aim is to continue to protect our clients and communities health and interests.
Selling your home during a global pandemic can be a scary prospect, the Andy & Paddy team follow strict protocols and are dedicated to keeping everyone involved safe and healthy with regards to covid-19. We restrict showings to 30 mins only, there are no overlapping showings and the health of all visitors is verified prior to them entering your home.
Health and Safety is top of mind always, so we have stopped doing any physical Open Houses, however we provide a ‘Virtual Open House’ so Buyers can follow us around your home from the safety of their computer. We also provide a 3D Virtual tour, so potential buyers can immerse themselves in your home through VR. This is all with the goal of preventing unnecessary foot traffic through your home.
A question we are asked all the time is “should we buy or sell first?” This is a good question and it is very personal to your own circumstances. Having this discussion at the beginning of the process is the best place to start. Discussing the time of year to launch your listing is also very important as Ottawa is quite seasonal with stronger times of the year to sell over others.
Getting it listed
We will review recent comparable sales with you and establish a list price, explain our services and discuss the strategy developed for selling your home during a global pandemic. We will also discuss marketing and promotion and finally sign paperwork. This is the perfect time to answer any and all questions you may have so you feel confident moving forward, as well as understand the process and what to expect next.
Preparing your home to sell
Now all of the paperwork is signed it’s time to get your home ready for buyers. At this point we will bring in our professional stager/interior decorator to discuss making your home the most inviting for its new owner. This usually means de-cluttering, cleaning, sometimes repairing broken items and generally getting your home shining! Statistics show that a staged home sells faster and for a higher price than an unstaged/prepared home.
Once your home is looking beautiful and shining, we will do the rest. We believe that a competitive marketing strategy is one of the biggest components in selling your home. Statistics show that buyers spend more time viewing your home online than in person. That is where we focus our attention…Online. Our online presence is tailored to many different demographics and our website is optimized, clear to navigate and is perfect for those “sofa surfers” just waiting for the perfect home. The Agency is the most followed brokerage in the World. We use social media as a way to market homes and also connect with past and new clients.
We are certified negotiators and take pride in that. No two sales are ever the same but our experience allows us to navigate negotiations deftly and have the confidence to recommend and implement strategies based off of market knowledge. We feel that we are able to get the best outcome for you. We negotiate the way that we operate our business – with honesty, integrity and experience. We feel that strong communication with the buyer’s Realtor is key to make sure that no money is left on the table and everyone involved is treated fairly.
Accepted!! Yay!! Now what…
We are there to facilitate anything needed to take you to the finish line. If the buyers had conditions in their offer, we will help accommodate them and navigate any bumps (if any) along the way. If needed we can provide you with trades people(recommendations) for any unexpected work needed. We will continually answer any questions you may have, deliver copies of your accepted offer to your lawyer and your financial advisor and help to take you from “conditional” to “sold”.
Congratulations you SOLD your home!!!
Once your home is officially “sold”, we are there to help with any walkthroughs, movers, etc. However this is a time when you will be organizing your finances, getting your paperwork ready for the closing day and packing. We will not be as active now however we are still present to answer any questions you may have. Now is a great time to let the post office and utility companies know that you are moving.
Keep in touch
We meet so many incredible people in our job and forge strong long-term relationships and friendships. We are here for you for years to come. If you need us, never ever be shy.
