Selling Your Home This Fall Doesn’t Have To Be SCARY!

Halloween is just around the corner! However, that doesn’t mean you have to ‘SCARED’ to sell your home this Fall. In fact, now is a great time to list your home for sale. We’ve compiled 4 ‘Tricks’ that will help you enjoy all the ‘Treats’ of a Fall Sale!

THE MARKET IS STILL HOT!
Sale prices are up across our community and properties aren’t staying on the market long. It’s the perfect time to cash in on your investment. What would you do with the extra money?

MOTIVATED BUYERS
We have motivated buyers that want to be in their new home for Winter. These buyers are in decision making mode! Many Buyers have been missing out in competition across our communities recently.

LESS COMPETITION
It’s not always the best decision to list your home during the most popular selling seasons. Right now, there are fewer new properties on the market meaning you’ll have less competition – which can pay off big time!

CURB APPEAL
Take advantage of the season by dressing up your home with warm, fall coloured plants, decorative door wreaths and seasonal items like Pumpkins.

Happy Halloween from everyone at For Sale On Georgian Bay!

3 Tips For The Ultimate Virtual Meeting

2020 will go down as the year virtual meetings take center stage. As concerns over COVID-19 continue, we are all reevaluating how to conduct business in a virtual world.

Executed well, virtual meetings can enable us all to collaborate, solve problems, and get work done as a normal. Inefficient meetings, however, become a waste of time and nobody wants that!

If you’re looking to sell your home during this time of social distancing, with the need to discuss many topics with local service providers, then you’re going to become a pro at virtual meetings! Here’s 3 tips we’ve compiled to set you on your way.

  1. Have A Plan
    Just like any regular meeting, you’re going to need to approach the meeting with a plan. Make sure you’re prepared to be on time, have relevant documents on hand, something to take notes and a list of questions to ask your agent.
  2. Test Your Environment
    When it comes to virtual meetings, there can be many hurdles, especially if you’re not used to conducting yourself in this manner. Make sure that you check your device is ready to host a meeting – is it charged or plugged in to a power source? Do you have a stable internet connection? Do you have the right software on your device or need an access code? Finally, remember to test the physical environment for your meeting. You need to have a well lit area, but don’t put direct sunlight behind you. You’ll also want to make sure that there isn’t obtrusive ambient noise.
  3. Meet Face to Face
    Ensure that every member at the virtual meeting can see one another. 55% of communication is body language, while another 38% is tone of voice, according to research. Meeting face-to-face on video is much more personal than meeting with a disembodied voice on the phone, and it helps build more of a rapport with your agent too. It also allows participants to pick up on body language and cues, such as when someone has finished speaking or if they are just taking a pause.
