Warm End-of-November Greetings to All!
This is the most exciting time of year for me, not because Christmas is coming, not at all!
This is the time, when I can slow down a bit and reflect on the year that is coming to an end and plan my next step into the New beginnings of January.
I believe that now is the time to talk to your Clients about their plans and hopes for next year. Now is the time to advice them on what needs to be done today, so that their planned home sale in early February goes smoothly.
One Client decided when she needs to be in the new home on the other side of the Province… and is now taking steps to get where she needs to be with everything else to reach her goal.
There are several things she wants to do to bring the home up to the neighbourhood standards, so there will be de-cluttering… first of all so that she can paint, refinish her floors and stage the home so it is in fact ready for a pre-Spring listing.
Another Client, spend an hour with me last week chatting about the details of planned improvements that she would like to do before her home is listed.
We went over every space and decided on the most beneficial and most cost effective ways to improve those spaces, so when the time comes to list, both herself and her home will be ready.
Yes, as Realtors, we are pre-programmed to say that NOW is ALWAYS the best time to sell, but I feel that when you truly listen to your Clients, you will be able to advise them on the best time to list and sell their home. The best time that truly suits their specific situation.
So I am there to guide them, and watch out for them, so that they don’t go overboard with the renovations, spending too much money in the process and setting themselves up for huge disappointments.
I’m there, in the “lower gear”, with more time to get to know my Clients a bit better, to listen and to learn about their true needs and their expectations.
This slower time of year also allows me to get my strength for the upcoming season, to implement new ideas, to improve my site and to research better strategies so, I can serve my Clients better.
