When Is The Best Time To List Your Home For Sale?

Trusted Saskatoon Realtor Clark Dziadyk Answers This Popular Question.


One of the most frequent questions I get asked from homeowners considering the idea of selling their home is, "When is the best time to list our home for sale?" 

 While the answer to the question isn’t necessarily black and white,   and there are often many social and economic factors to consider, the following is my take on when the best time to list our home for sale would be. Everyone has their own reason for selling, but this advice applies to anyone who has the luxury of time on their side and the choice of when they would like to list. 

 You may have heard other Realtors® talk about 'time of year' when referring to the best time to sell, whereas I think the right advice is much deeper than that. I believe the   question that needs to be   asked is "what style of property are you wanting to sell?".If it is an acreage property you own, then the main selling feature of the property is often the land and would be best shown in the summer months when foliage is in full bloom. Ideally, you would want to list in April or May as this is when most acreage buyers start up their search.

 

If it is a condo you are thinking of listing, whether it be a townhome, stand-alone home (bare land condo), or apartment style; I believe the best time to list is when the competition is low. For example, if there are several other apartment-style units for sale comparable to yours in the same complex or building, chances are you are going to sit on the market for a while. Unless you have something completely unique to offer that your competition does not (eg.- view, additional parking, top floor, etc), then waiting until there aren’t as many comparable units for sale would be best.


 Similarly, the same is true when considering selling a single family dwelling (stand-alone home). If there are many homes for sale comparable to yours in your immediate area, waiting until the competition is thinner might just be your best option. 
 If timing is not on your side and you need a quick sale, contact me today and he would be happy to discuss a strategy to achieve top market dollar for your home!

Trusted Saskatoon Realtor Clark Dziadyk explains some tips from a recent online blog. Here are some tips on how to get into today’s housing market:


Tips to Get into Today’s Housing Market from Trusted Saskatoon Realtor Clark Dziadyk




# 1 Become a Landlord


Most people don’t know that if you buy a home that contains a rental unit, the income from that unit can help you to qualify to get a mortgage. For example, if you were to buy a home with a basement suite, you can rent out the basement. For maximum income, you could even live in the basement suite yourself and rent out the upper portion of the house.

In order to cut costs, even more, you could look into doing renovations to the rental yourself, which is, of course, more work but it could save you lots of money in the end. Rental spaces are definitely worth exploring! You can always run the numbers on purchasing certain properties with rental spaces in them to determine the best possible outcome for you. Worried about irritating and irrational tenants? Or dealing with the regulations that come with renting out a portion of your home? Concerns such as these can be dealt with by screening tenants during application processes. Make sure to check out the Government Canada website for regulations that need to be followed.


# 2 Go in With a Partner (or a few)





A huge way to cut costs would be to split everything between you and another or a few people! Let’s be honest, these days it’s becoming common for couples to find themselves living with other couples! To make this happen, you must first choose a worthy partner. Whether it be a few siblings sharing a house, a couple friends splitting a condo well you get the idea! You may be able to split the bills, monthly payments and the havoc of a down payment with one or more people! A few things need to be in place in order for this process to work! Like well-chosen partners, a draft of a co-ownership agreement drawn up by a lawyer that spells out all of the rules, and a system for communication between partners to make sure that everything moves smoothly. Communication between housemates is key, especially in preventing miscommunications and conflicts.

Another alternative in order to lessen your stress is to consider co-ownership opportunities. These allow you to buy shares of a company that owns the property, or to buy a small ownership percentage of the property. By doing this, it grants you specific rights to a unit itself. 


# 3 Consider Using Your RRSP


As a first time homeowner, you have written proof that you plan to build or buy a new home and you have money in your RRSP. As a Trusted Saskatoon realtor, Clark Dziadyk can help you with all of your pre-ownership needs! You may be able to use the RRSP Home Buyer’s Plan to get your hands on a tax-free down payment. However, if you are helping a relative with a disability through this process, you also qualify! The Home Buyer’s Plan allows each spouse to withdraw $25,000 to purchase a house. The only downfall is that you need to pay the money back to your RSSP in annual payments within 15 years. Any amount unpaid within that timeframe will be subject to income tax.

Tax-free money homeownership looks pretty good, doesn’t it? Or at least being able to start off your homeownership using tax-free money is. Depending on your individual tax bracket, it could be like having almost twice as much money at your disposal. You just cannot forget about those annual repayments in your new budget. 


#4 Make MORE Money


This is always the end goal in life now-a-days isn't it? 

Home prices seem to be increasing but that doesn’t always mean that your income is. An obvious solution is to make more money; however, this is easier said than done. Here are some approaches that can be taken:

The quickest approach is to ask for a raise at work. This can be a lot to ask, but it doesn’t always have to be. Communicating to your boss that you’re looking to settle down and buy a home (first time, second, upgrade, etc.) and what income level you’re striving for in order to make it happen, you could persuade them into giving you the raise you are looking for! In the end, asking for a raise is like a sales pitch. You are selling yourself by describing the situation, your goals, how to leverage your strengths, and ultimately asking for the raise itself. Whether you believe it or not, employers are people! Generally, people like to be as helpful as they can towards others. Sharing personal stories always have a measure of relatability to them, and more often than not they work better than pure logic.

On the other hand, if you’re willing to open yourself up to new opportunities, there is no harm in looking into another job. Shop yourself around and see if you are truly earning what you should be in your career marketplace. You will surprise yourself and may open new doors to new job opportunities in your field. Increase your network and speak to recruiters, you may find the job that you’ve been looking for that increases your income!


# 5 Relax


Let’s be honest, you’re not getting any younger. You want to be a homeowner! The whole process can be very stressful for a person. In order to relieve stress, you should consider using a Trusted Saskatoon Realtor such as Clark Dziadyk!

You need to make sure you’re ready before you become a homeowner! The right house will come along, it always does! Clark can make sure that you find your dream home! We live in a real-estate obsessed culture, but the relationships you build with family and friends will be the real key to your happiness in the long run. 

Set goals for the next few years of where you want to get to and take it one goal at a time. Write out your plan for home ownership and hold yourself accountable to it! Meanwhile, take a deep breath, relax, sign up for a yoga class and don’t rush things. You will be a homeowner one day! Believe it!

Trusted Saskatoon Real Estate Agent Kari Calder Awarded CENTURY 21 Golden Heart Award

Support of local families living with disabilities gains Trusted Saskatoon REALTOR® Kari Calder an award!

Incredible community dedication honoured by CENTURY 21 Canada and Easter Seals Canada 

Trusted Saskatoon REALTOR® Kari Calder has given Easter Seals kids the experience of a lifetime: a week-long trip to a fully accessible summer camp. By raising over $2,100 this year, Calder is inducted into the 2017 C21® Kids to Camp Club and receives the CENTURY 21 Golden Heart Award.

Besides recognition, Calder will be connected with a camper who will share their personal experience, to provide a firsthand story of the donation’s impact. The club’s mission is to provide more kids with life-changing camp memories by increasing awareness and inspiring fundraising within CENTURY 21 offices.

“I know this program will definitely give many bright campers a wonderful future. In fact, as I write this, I am heading to Easter Seals Camp Rotary to take the leadership training program. This will help teach me the skills I will need as I look at future job opportunities,” said 15 year old Brandon Liston, Easter Seals national ambassador. “I am sure this is the case for many others like me and it is all because of people like Kari – and the Kids to Camp Club!”

Easter Seals will highlight Calder on a special installation at their local camp and nationally in the organization’s annual report. As well, they will be sent invites to special Easter Seals’ events as an honourary guest.

Since 1979, CENTURY 21 System members around the world have supported local Easter Seals families through fundraising and volunteering. To date, they have contributed over $111 million. Last year alone, CENTURY 21 offices across Canada raised over $650,000 for Easter Seals. 


About the Kids to Camp program

In 2009, CENTURY 21 CanadaTM introduced the Kids to Camp program, sending children to one of 16 summer camps run by Easter Seals across the country. Through events like The Drop Zone, 24 hour relays, Woman2Warrior, and locally organized fundraising functions, System members have provided over 1,000 children with the independence of fully-accessible summer camps and memorable experiences throughout Canada.

How are Easter Seals camps different?

Each camp is specially designed and equipped to accommodate children and young adults with special needs. The addition and maintenance of ramps and lifts, the modification of doorways, washrooms, the purchase of specialized sports equipment like climbing walls and giant swings are just a few of the expenses unique to these kinds of operations.


The Trusted Saskatoon directory team and the Trusted Saskatoon community of local businesses run with integrity also send our thank you's to Kari Calder- a Trusted Saskatoon Realtor!
