A recent Ontario Real Estate Association survey shows that when selling a home, 61 per cent of sellers are most concerned about the legal documentation involved, the top-rated concern amongst Ontario home sellers after the real estate market itself.
Fixing up a home before selling comes in at a close second with 60 per cent, and in third place is the number of days on the market a home will have before it finally sells at 59 per cent.
Six per cent more men felt a sense of inconvenience when selling a home, but five per cent more women felt that fixing up a home was a major concern.
“It seems homeowners are just as concerned with the home selling process and the documents involved as they are with the thought of preparing their home for sale, which isn’t surprising as there’s a lot to consider with this step,” said Ontario Real Estate Association president Ron Abraham. “Realtors can quite quickly and easily identify areas in a home that require repairs or touch-ups or alternatively can advise against certain renovations if the return on investment isn’t there. Ultimately, homeowners want to show their home in its best light to help make for a smooth negotiation phase and sale.”
