The Selling Process

You want selling your home to be fast, easy, and profitable. Here’s what we recommend you do to make that happen:

1. Contact Your Realtor

The first step for any prospective seller should be to connect with a realtor and announce their intent to sell. When you reach out to Conroy Real Estate, we’ll ask key questions about your property and its condition, then use that information to start compiling everything you’ll need to list it.

2. Stage Your Home

The next step is to make your home ready for viewing by prospective buyers. Staging your home typically involves the following steps (at minimum):

  • Cleaning and decluttering each room
  • Removing old or unmatching furniture
  • Repainting or redoing other design elements
  • Grooming the grounds and touching up the trim to increase curb appeal

Properly staging your home makes it look more appealing in photos for print and online ads, and gives buyers who visit the impression of being better maintained. This leads to more offers, helping you achieve a better selling price.

3. List Your Home

Once your home is staged, it’s time to list it through your realtor and start welcoming buyers. Listing your home through a highly-motivated and experienced agency like Conroy Real Estate helps you connect with serious buyers who are likely to get excited about making you an offer.

4. Close

Once you’ve decided to accept an offer, it’s time to sign the paperwork and close the sale. You’ll finish the transaction by transferring the title to the new owner and collect the remainder of the funds you’re owed. Congratulations!

Frequently Asked Questions about Selling a Home in Calgary

What are the benefits of hiring a real estate agent to help sell my home?

Attempting to sell your home without the support of a real estate agent can be risky. Working with an experienced realtor provides the following advantages:

  • Help navigating a complex process (contracts, negotiations, etc.)
  • Analysis of similar properties and market conditions (to help determine an asking price)
  • Useful industry connections (mortgage professionals, inspectors, etc.)
  • Valuable tools and other resources (for email marketing, graphic design, etc.)

Make no mistake—real estate is a full-time job. That’s why real estate agents exist! Buying or selling a home is a lot of work, and cutting corners can seriously impact your success. Hiring an experienced real estate professional remains the single best way to get the deal you want.

How do I choose a real estate agent to sell my home?

Choosing the right real estate agent to help you sell isn’t something you should rush into. We generally recommend speaking with at least a few agents before choosing one. During these conversations, make sure to ask:

  • How much they think they can sell your home for
  • What they will do to market your property
  • How many clients they are currently selling for
  • What they’ll need from you during the process

The way each agent answers these questions will help you form a picture of how motivated they are, how much clout they have within the industry, and how much time they’re willing to spend on you personally.

Experienced agents like us leverage industry connections to make sure your listing is getting in front of the right prospective buyers. Boutique agencies also tend to work with fewer clients at a time than large real estate corporations, allowing for a deeper and more personalized connection to each seller.

How do I calculate my sale price?

Your real estate agent will help you determine an appropriate selling price for your home. A good general rule of thumb is to set your asking price within 10% of the average price other homes in your neighbourhood sold for—but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Setting the right asking price will be a vital part of your selling strategy. You’ll want to think about the type of people who would be most likely to buy a home like yours (young families, empty nesters, etc.), then price it in a category that they’ll be likely to find it in. You might also adjust the asking price to sell your home faster depending on market conditions. As such, it’s essential to have an experienced real estate agent on your side.

What are the fees?

The fees for selling your home vary from one agent to the next. When you contact us for help selling your home, we’ll work with you to determine a reasonable commission for our services.

She is so responsive and knowledgeable and on top of that has such a great personality you can't help but smile. Never have I worked with a better realtor before. Stop looking and call Jill!!!!

Jill was amazing! She was always available for viewings and accommodating to our busy work schedules. Being first time home buyers, we had a lot to learn about the process of buying a house and Jill was there to answer all of our questions. Highly recommended to anyone. We will be using her again!

Jill provides well supported information and thoughtful feedback. As first time home buyers, we were uncertain about so many things and Jill made herself very available to answer all questions. She simplified the process and helped us purchase our dream home in a much shorter time frame than we predicted. We enjoyed working with her so much and have already recommended her to others.
