How to sell a Vancouver loft? Who to choose?
#1 - Choose a loft specialist
Do not sell your loft with any realtor. Vancouver lofts are a unique brand of property that aim at a particular audience. A Vancouver loft specialist will typically know a building and comparable units, and most of all will possess knowledge of what the loft market is experiencing in terms of sales and listings. They are able to educate you and potential purchasers on your loft versus what else is being offered on the market. Furthermore, they are knowledgeable about key features of loft including ceiling heights, loft orientation, and layouts which are most often looked-for. A loft specialist also directs the buyers' attention on what is most excellent about the your loft.
#2 - Where do buyers come from?
Loft buyers don't only come from MLS.ca. For instance, our website receives thousands of new and different visitors every month from a wide range of sources including, but not limited to: Craigslist, news print, loft mail-outs, strategically placed "Vancouver loft" online ads, Google paid ads and organic searches, networks of loft buyers, and numerous other search engines such as Yahoo, MSN, Live, Bing, etc. Be assured that your Vancouver loft realtor has distinctive and well-targeted advertising that you believe can create a large flow of buyers.
#3 - Strategic Pricing
Trying out a high price can deter a sale. If you begin listing your loft at a very high price, you will probably end up chasing the market down. A listing's reputation is situated at the start. Remarkable price decreases show that the owner is becoming desperate to sell his/her loft and may result in the listing receiving very low offers or even ignored. It is most essential to leave a good impression from the start date, since most of a listing's activity is within the first four weeks. Do not choose you realtor based on the listing price they give you or accept. Choose your listing realtor for their service levels, marketing tactics, selling history, and your overall impression of their business strategies.
#4 - What kind of service can you expect
Each agent has a different level of service. Be sure to inquire as to how often you will hear feedback from your realtor once you place your loft on the market. A seller's most terrible scenario is to sit in the background uninformed as their property becomes stale on the market. Moreover, ask yourself: Does this agent do his/her own showings? Does he/she have assistants who actually do the ground work? How qualified are the assistants? Do they leave lockboxes for others? Are the assistants licensed and actually able to make claims about the property?
