The art of presentation: Make your home stand out! 

Presentation is everything when it comes to selling a home, especially in the always desirable west Toronto neighbourhoods, such as Bloor West. In a neighbourhood as fabulous as BWV, your home needs to shine like a diamond in the rough. So, roll up your sleeves, and let’s get this show on the road! Before listing your property, take the time to declutter, depersonalize, and stage each room to perfection. Buyers want to be able to envision themselves living in your home, so it’s important to create a space that feels warm, welcoming, and inviting.

At NESTED the listing goal is to help curate the best version of your home and help the buyer fall in LOVE! From freshening up the paint to adding a few minor improvements, a little bit of effort can go a long way towards making your home stand out from the competition. From staging to styling, we’ll transform your humble abode into a show-stopping masterpiece that’ll have buyers lining up around the block. Trust us, it’ll be worth it!

Lights, camera, action: Turn on the marketing magic! 

In today’s digital era, investing in professional marketing materials is crucial to ensure your property receives the right exposure online. With professional-grade photos, virtual tours, detailed property descriptions, personalized websites, and standout marketing campaigns, your home will become the talk of the neighbourhood in a flash! These efforts make all the difference when it comes to attracting your target buyer.

Your property may have a great layout or plenty of space or upgraded finishes, but if it’s not marketed strategically, it won’t sell quickly or for the right amount—or at all. At NESTED, our specialized marketing plans are custom-made for each and every home. We work closely with professional photographers and videographers to ensure they capture the best features and showcase your property to capture interest online. With eye-catching marketing materials and targeted advertising campaigns, we’ll make sure that your property gets the attention it deserves in a competitive market. So, sit back, relax, and let’s watch the offers roll in! 

Location, location, location: Highlight all the benefits  

In real estate, they say it’s all about location, and BWV definitely has that covered! Situated just west of downtown Toronto, BWV offers the perfect blend of urban convenience and small-town charm. With easy access to public transit, major highways, and a wide range of amenities, it’s no wonder buyers are clamoring to call this neighborhood home. When marketing your property, be sure to highlight its proximity to the TTC, easy highway access, as well as its easy access to schools, parks, and local shopping. Buyers want to know that they’re not just buying a home – they’re buying into a lifestyle, and BWV offers the best of both worlds.

Living the BWV dream: Time to showcase the lifestyle! 

Now, let’s talk lifestyle, shall we? BWV isn’t just a spot to settle down, it’s more than just the physical features of the neighbourhood. Buyers are also seeking a particular lifestyle and becoming part of a vibrant community is key. As a seller, it’s important to showcase the Bloor West Village lifestyle and all it has to offer. Don’t just focus on the four walls – paint a picture of the BWV lifestyle in all its glory. Talk about lazy Sunday strolls in High Park, impromptu porch hangouts with the neighbours, and the endless array of culinary delights along Bloor Street. Let’s not forget the local events and festivals that bring the community together, plus additional parks and green spaces where families can relax and play. Paint a picture of what life in BWV is like, and buyers will be eager to join the fold! 

Negotiation: Experience will seal the deal!

Last but not least, let’s talk negotiations. Once you start receiving offers on your home, it’s important to be prepared for negotiations. In a competitive market and desirable location like BWV, buyers may be willing to pay top dollar for the right property. But getting the highest price isn’t always easy, this all starts with choosing the right pricing strategy and aligning your sale with what is happening in the market at the time. It’s important to insight your pricing strategy and listing price with what buyers are used to seeing with other successful sales. Sometimes this means listing with a strategically low price with the goal to review all offers on the same day and other times it means listing at higher price and leaving room to negotiate, or a price you would accept, accepting offers anytime. Negotiations should always start long before you receive your first offer and turn interested parties into quality offers for you.
