Selling in Calgary | Matthew Oakes Real Esate

Selling your home

Getting the best possible return on your investment means doing more than putting a "For Sale" sign out front. I will provide you with all the relevant information you will need and guide you through every step of the selling process. Moving is a time-consuming pain-in-the-you-know-what. My goal is to illeviate your stress and to make the entire process as smooth as possible.

I will guide you through every step of the selling process to maximize your return. By far and away the most effective tool to market and sell your home for top dollar is a perfectly designed listing on the MLS. In Calgary we are blessed with an all-inclusive database of virtually all homes currently for sale. Almost every serious buyer and agent is actively searching on the MLS database ( I will develop a marketing strategy specifically designed to harness and to maximize the power of the MLS. Excellent photography is the key to attracting the right buyer. Photos which highlight and accurately represent each space inside and outside of a property is the most effective tool for any marketing strategy. I firmly believe my extreme level of care and attention to every minute detail of each photograph is a huge part of why my listings sell at a much higher rate and for a higher average price than the industry average. 

What you do to your property prior to listing is also vitally important. I will assist you with what to do to and what not to do. I will help you focus your resources regarding renovating, de-cluttering, cleaning and staging. All this, coupled with the right pricing strategy and my extensive contacts within the industry, will be the catalyst to maximize your return on your investment.
