Overview Of The Selling Process
The best price for your home, in the right time.
Here’s the steps involved in selling your home in the flourishing British Columbia market.
1. Answer key questions
Luke will first have many questions to help target and assess potential buyers, including:
- Why are you selling your home?
- Are there time constraints to consider?
- What characteristics make your home unique?
Ensure you’re committed to doing what it takes to sell your home for the best price, and in the quickest manner possible.
2. Marketing your home
Luke will arrange for professional photos of your home, and will also create a video tour using a video drone and professional indoor equipment.
Room measurements and property details will be recorded, and Luke will want to understand all the strengths of your home so he can present it in the best way possible.
Your home’s listing will then be promoted across a wide range of marketing channels and real estate resources, including:
- This tailored website
- MLS, the multiple listings service (normally accessed through the realtor.ca website)
- Social media channels such as Facebook
- Luke’s database of active buyers
3. Receiving offers
Luke will review each offer with you, and advise you on the best decision to make.
4. Completing a sale
With an offer accepted, you will need a lawyer for several legal documents and the title transfer.
Practicalities will also now be important:
- Arranging for movers
- Transferring utility bills and other accounts to your new address
- Setting up mail forwarding
- Arranging for a cleaner for possession day (yes, your responsibility!)
5. Possession day
On the day of, or the day before, possession, you will meet with your lawyer to sign all the legal documents and hand over the keys.
And you’re done!

"I had the pleasure of meeting Luke in July as I was putting an apartment with an age stipulation of over 55 in Nelson up for sale. My first thought was “He is young!” After talking to you, Luke, I decided to list with you. I am so happy I did. Selling an apartment to someone over 55, I thought may be a hardship for you. You worked hard to sell as you enjoy what you are doing and have knowledge of the area! You are also very pleasant to chat with! Thanks so much for the quick sale and closure of the apartment! I can now move on!"
