There’s always an increase in home buying demand in springtime around the city of Edmonton. Good weather makes it a perfect time for buyers to go around and shop for their dream Edmonton home.
We at Team Leading Edge made this shortlist of tips on how you can sell your Edmonton home fast this season.
- 60-SECOND RULE: When buyers see a property for the first time, it takes them approximately 60-seconds to decide if they’ll consider buying it or not.
Buyers will know right away if the home is fit for them, so ensure that you will not turn them off before they even get inside the property.
It is recommended that you maintain a good curb appeal. Here’s an excerpt from our previous post:
“CURB APPEAL: The façade of your house is the first thing home buyers see so it’s the first thing that you need to take care of. Spring is here so you can now easily take care of the front (and back) yard. Change the porch lights, mow the lawn and add a fresh coat of paint to give the sexy appeal to potential buyers. FIRST IMPRESSION IS EVERYTHING!”

- CLEANLINESS: As the saying goes, cleanliness is next to godliness. If you’re truly serious in selling your Edmonton home fast, make sure to have it cleaned before showing it to potential buyers.
You might have passed the 60-second rule and had your front lawn professionally landscaped but you will ruin all that effort if you don’t clean the interiors as well!
Simply de-clutter. Throw unnecessary materials and properly store books, personal belongings and all the toys. If need be, wipe, brush and scrub to get the dirt and dust off.
- MAINTENANCE: Once you have everything sorted out, the next thing to do is to make sure that everything is running smoothly. Once buyers consider purchasing your home, they’ll have it checked by a home inspector. If and when the home inspector reports that there are leaks or damages, it may surely jeopardize the sale of your home.
Double or even triple check your plumbing, wiring and ventilations. You can hire a professional to check it for you if you want.
