Buying a home is different than purchasing most other “products” in one important respect: agreeing to the price tag doesn’t guarantee you’ll get the property! There may be competing offers.
Fortunately, there is plenty that can be done to increase your chances of getting the home you want.
The most effective strategy is to be proactive. Get alerted to and go to see properties that match your criteria the moment they come on the market. That way, you’ll get a jump on competing buyers. When you find a home you want, go in at the right price. You don’t want to pay too much, but your offer does need to signal to the seller that you’re serious.
Effective offer presentation and negotiation also play vital roles. Having your offer presented with expertise and skill will maximize your chances of getting the deal.
Yes, competing offers can make you anxious. But, if you have the right expert working on your behalf, you can breathe a little easier.

If you own a stock, you can probably go online and quickly look up its current value.
What about your home? That, too, is an important investment and probably your most valuable one. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could “look up” its current value in just a few minutes?
Well, despite all the real estate data available on the internet these days, there is no site that will calculate your home’s true market value – at least not accurately. So, if you were to put your home up for sale tomorrow, how would you determine what it would likely sell for?
Your home’s probable selling price is influenced by the following factors:
- The type and style of your home.
- The condition of your home. (Is it “move in” ready?)
- How well your home shows? (Is it staged?)
- The desirability of the neighbourhood.
- Recent selling prices of similar homes in the area.
- The current demand for a home like yours.
All these factors, especially recent solds in the area, need to be considered in order to come up with the price range within which your property will likely sell.
Why is this information important? If you plan on listing soon, the benefits of knowing the probable selling price is obvious. But even if your plans to move are far down the road, it’s still a good idea to know what your home is worth – today. That information enables you to plan ahead and make better decisions. It’s something worth thinking about.

|Make a “Great Things” List|
What’s great about your home? Is it the spacious foyer and generous main floor closet space? Is it the beautiful washroom? Is it the playground that is only a short walking distance away?
Although some properties may look similar at first glance, every home is unique – with features and characteristics that make it special. If you’re considering putting your home on the market, make a list of all the great things about your property that potential buyers will want to know.
Start by thinking about the most desirable features of your home. Write down what you really love about the house and the surrounding area.
Next, think about what comments friends and other visitors to your home have made. Have you ever heard anyone say something like, “I really love your kitchen!” or, “This is such a quiet street”? Those are indications that potential buyers will like those features and characteristics too.
Once you have your list, let’s talk. Together, we’ll review all the great things about your home and area, and decide how to market them effectively.
