7 Easy Steps to Selling a Home in Vancouver

Making the decision to sell your current home is stressful for a number of reasons – but not knowing how to actually go about selling your property shouldn’t be one of them. To make things easier, here are seven steps you need to compete in order to sell your home in Vancouver from Paul Eviston - a Top Remax Vancouver real estate agent for over 30 years. Happy selling!

Step 01

Choose the right time to sell your home

Figuring out if you are ready to sell your home is a personal and financial decision. Before you do anything else, have an accountant run through your finances with you to better understand whether or not you are in a good financial position to buy and sell property.

Step 02

Find the right REALTOR®

Not all real estate agents are created equally. In fact, finding the right realtor in Vancouver is one of the most important things you can do to sell your home as quickly and as effectively as possible. Although real estate agent collecting business cards at Vancouver open houses are one option, we suggest doing your research online to figure out which realtor will work best for you. Just make sure to interview a few potential candidates in person before making your final decision. We recommend selecting a realtor recognized with a Vancouver REALTOR® designation. 

Step 03

Sign a realtor listing agreement

Once you have chosen your REALTOR®, the next step is to make the contract official. By signing the listing agreement, you will authorize your REALTOR® and their brokerage to market and sell your home.

Step 04

Prepare your home to sell in Vancouver

Most of the time your home won’t need a full-scale renovation to be ready to sell. But smaller things like bad paint jobs, cluttered rooms and stained carpet can really make buyers think twice about choosing your property. Spend some time giving each room in your house a mini face-lift. The trick is to try and create a space that perspective buyers can actually visualize themselves living in.

Step 05

Let your Vancouver REALTOR® work their magic

Once the space is ready, it’s time to list your home! At this point the REALTOR® will start marketing your home to potential buyers. From creating an online listing to hosting strategic open houses, your REALTOR® will set a plan into motion to sell your home as swiftly and as profitably as possible.

Step 06

Receive an offer

After all the advertisements and open houses, your REALTOR® will come to you with every offer that a potential buyer has made on the home. It is your prerogative to decide whether to accept, decline or negotiate a new offer for your home – but don’t worry, you’re REALTOR® will be there to advice you during every step of this process.

Step 07

Congratulations! You’ve sold your home

Once all the finances have cleared and the paperwork has been signed, all the work (besides moving out) will be done. On closing day, your REALTOR® will present you with a cheque for your total earnings and you’ll have successfully sold your home.
