Listing Your Home

Agree on a Market Plan

Your property is not something you sell everyday. In fact, for many people it is their largest asset. A house is very complex to market and the process needs to be well organized. To do the job properly a plan is needed.

Nancy O’Dea can prepare a personalized plan for you containing all activities intended to market your property. At Royal LePage, your property will be aggressively promoted through Royal LePage’s own property advertising publications, other Royal LePage offices and Real Estate Professionals, the MLS information library (unless it’s an exclusive listing), and the Internet.

Signing a Listing Agreement

The first formal step in marketing you property is to enter into a Listing Agreement – a contract the commits Royal LePage to actively market your home for a specified period of time. It also commits to to a pre-established marketing fee that is paid upon the successful closing of the sale.

Nancy O’Dea may require the following documents:

  • Plan of Survey or Location Certificate
  • Certificate – A survey of your property which outlines the lot size and location of buildings as well as details of encroachments from neighbouring properties. This may be required in certain areas to complete the sale of your home. Your legal professional may recommend that you obtain a survey, especially if significant changes have been made to your property. 
  • Property Tax Receipts – Most Listing Agreements require that the current annual property tax assessments be shown. 
  • Mortgage Verification – Few homeowners know the exact balance on their mortgage as it is paid down. You will be asked to authorize your mortgage lender to provide the figures required. 
  • Certificate – This document is a legal description of your property and proof that you own it. 
  • Other Documentation – In some instances, it may help the sale of your property if you can provide prospective buyers with information on such items as annual heating, electrical, and water expenses, as well as any recent home improvements costs.
