Getting ready to sell your home in the Fraser Valley

Two things you should sit down and discuss before you begin to think about listing your property are motivation and timing. It’s critical that you consider these two factors, as they’re different for each and every seller we work with in the Fraser Valley. Contemplating why you’re selling and when you’d like to move will help give us a better idea of your expectations, something we go through in detail with all of our clients. 

Understanding the current market before you list is another important part of the pre-listing process. Our advisors live and breathe real estate in Cloverdale, Langley, Surrey, South Surrey, and White Rock and can bring you up to speed on market analysis and comparable properties to help you determine pricing expectations. We’re a team of top-producing, results-driven advisors, here to help maximize your sale price and sell your home quickly.

Working with a real estate professional

Before you go to market, it’s essential that you work with a real estate agent who makes you feel prepared and confident. Here are a few of the things you should look for in a great agent:

Preparing your home for sale

Once you have a grasp on your timing, motivation, and the market conditions, preparing your home for sale is the next step. This is where we lay the groundwork to sell your home quickly and for maximum value. 

The Katronis Real Estate team will work with you to go over home upgrades that are worth investing in prior to listing, ways to stage your home for the perfect buyer persona, and how to enhance your curb appeal to make sure potential buyers are interested in your property from the moment they step out of their vehicle. We’ll help with measurements, signage, and ordering the documents needed to showcase your home.

Next, we’ll work on staging and custom photography for your property. Decluttering and depersonalizing your home will help buyers envision themselves living at your property, and our team of professional photographers will help make sure your home looks as good in photos online as it does in person.

Going to market

After we’ve prepared your home for sale, it’s time to go to market. This is where your home’s custom marketing plan comes into play. 

Your home will be listed on the MLS, reaching thousands of potential buyers on the Realtor MLS,,, Point 2 Homes, and on the Katronis website. We’ll highlight your property in print media with newspaper advertisements, custom flyers and feature sheets, provide exposure through our extensive buyer’s network, create for sale and open house signage, and drum up the attention you need to generate interest. 

With our marketing plan firing on all cylinders, our team will arrange for buyers to visit your home at an open house, promoting the event through our marketing channels. We also offer exclusive tours of new listings to local Realtors with interested buyers.
