How to Sell Your Home for More Than You Were Hoping

In today’s Greater Toronto Area real estate market, selling your home takes smart planning. Everything you do to prepare and market your home can affect its selling price. As a real estate professional with more than 30 years of real estate experience, here is my shortlist of four important factors that affect your selling price.

How to Sell Your Home for More Than You Were Hoping


Marketing is one of the most essential steps in selling your home, and a strong marketing strategy will help you make a bigger profit. Your house should be listed on a plethora of websites online, in local and major newspapers, in magazines, and on social media. Open houses can be a great way to attract potential buyers, especially if you advertise with a lot of signs.

Team McDadi can help with all of your marketing needs when it comes to selling your home. We offer print, online, social media, television, billboard and international marketing services, so your listing will reach, literally, millions of people around the world.


Staging is the act of arranging furniture and decor in a way that makes your home look as appealing as possible to as many potential buyers as possible. Even if you love the way your home is currently set up, you may have to do some rearranging to help buyers visualize the home as their own.

The most important steps in properly staging your home are cleaning and de-cluttering. There shouldn’t be any personal items left out in the open, and everything should be fresh and clean. Lighting is another important consideration. All of your blinds and curtains should be open, and your light fixtures should be clean. The brighter your home is, the more inviting it will be.

If you’re overwhelmed with the process of staging your house, Team McDadi can help. We have an in-house staging department that will provide free consultations, as well as furniture and accessories to make your home look its best.


You want to get the highest price possible for your home, but asking isn’t the right strategy. Your home should be priced competitively.  Look at comparable homes in your area to determine the ideal listing price. Team McDadi offers free home evaluation services to determine the value of your house.

You should work with a real estate expert with experience in your neighbourhood to determine how much to ask for your home.  Call Team McDadi at 905-502-1500 and we would be happy to answer all of your real estate questions.
