Choose your broker carefullyIn order to be well supported during the selling process, you must choose with great care the real estate broker who will be in charge of your file.

So keep in mind that the key is to gather as much information about the candidate as possible to ensure that he or she is the right person for the job! Also, never forget to verify that your broker is member of the Organisme d'auto-réglementation du courtage immobilier du Québec (OACIQ).
Set a reasonable priceOf course, any homeowner selling their home wants to get the most for their money.

Therefore, you will have to compare your property with the posted selling price for those that have similar characteristics to yours, whether it be the year of construction, the materials used or the renovations done on the property. To be sure that the price you set really corresponds to what you will be able to obtain on the market, get the help of a certified appraiser.
