With 2015 in our back pocket, we’ve launched into 2016 with a sellers market in Port Alberni and surrounding area. Houses are flying off the shelves of the real estate market and we have the SOLD signs to prove it!
Right now in Port Alberni and on Sproat Lake, inventory is low and the buyers who are looking are active and motivated, making it an excellent time to put your house on the market before spring hits.
For sellers, preparation is key. Make sure your home is clean and clutter-free to appeal to potential buyers. Removing personal touches may seem unfamiliar at first, but it helps buyers picture themselves living in your home. You can make potential buyers feel welcome with small touches like colourful, cosy throws on the couch and ensuring the thermostat is set to a comfortable temperature.
Preparing the outside of your home is also just as important before putting your house on the market, especially in the winter. Make sure your house is free of ice and snow on the walkway before showings and open houses. You can help your house stand out by enhancing the curb appeal with tasteful decorations suitable for the time of year.
Does that sound like a lot to remember? Don’t forget, we’re here to help you every step of the way
Here are just a handful of recent houses all sold by the Dave Team:
