The average Bōde lister takes 18-22 minutes to complete their listing if they have photos, measurements, and description complete.

Take a good look and see if there are some high-value touch-ups you might consider. Knicks? Dings? Paint goes a long way to improve the aesthetic at a reasonable cost. Having your home professionally cleaned and professionally staged will show your home in the best possible light and is worth considering.

Start listing

You’ve shopped for a house before, so you know what it’s like to feel welcome in a home that isn’t yours. Make sure the house is clean, the lights are on, the alarm is off, and the temperature is comfortable. You might consider leaving bottled water, flowers, or other low-touch, high-impact elements to stand out from the rest of the pack. Make your home approachable regardless of the season – grass mowed in the summer, leaves raked in the fall and walks shovelled in the winter. Follow-up with people after their showing to gather feedback and see if there is any interest. This will inform your go-forward strategy.

A Real Property Report will be required for a Single-Family Home or Bareland Condo. If you don’t already have your Real Property Report or need to make an update to your existing one, book a surveyor. If your property is a condo, condo documents may need to be reviewed by the buyers. This process can take a couple of weeks to get all of the documents together.

Get a new RPR

Be ready to field questions from people viewing your home. Has your house flooded? How old is your roof/boiler/furnace? What are average utility costs? What is the ideal possession date? Any outstanding insurance claims? Minor deficiencies are often anticipated and buyers are aware that it will factor into your pricing.
