Know More About Costs Of Selling Your Home
Standard costs you can expect to pay include:
- legal costs for services, including a statement of adjustment
- a mortgage discharge fee to remove the collateral hold on your home (known as a “release” in Quebec)
A statement of adjustment requires the buyer to reimburse you if you prepaid your property taxes past the date on which you sell your home.
Other potential costs:
- realtor or real estate agent fees
- moving costs
- staging fees, if you choose to stage your home yourself or pay a professional to make your home more appealing to potential buyers
- cleaning fees, if you choose to hire a professional cleaner
- mortgage prepayment penalties, if you sell your home before the end of your mortgage term
Know More About Setting Your Home’s Sale Price
To help you set the right sale price for your home, you can:
- compare current sales listings of similar homes in your neighbourhood
- ask a realtor to suggest a price
Remember to factor all of your selling costs into your sale price.
Once your home is on the market, gather any documents that will help you with the selling process, including:
- property tax receipts
- renovation contracts
- transferable warranties
Benefits Of Selling Your Home With A Realtor
A realtor can help you with the following:
Choose the right time to sell
List your home on an online site such as MLS (multiple listing service) or Centris
Identify ways to increase the value of your home before you sell
Determine an appropriate sale price
Arrange showings and open houses
Complete the necessary paperwork
If you use a realtor, you’ll pay a commission based on the home’s sale price. Realtor commissions may be negotiable, but typically range from 2% to 6%, depending on your location.
