At the end of the day, the goals are simple- Safety and Security’, says Jodi Rell(former Governor of Connecticut) and so does believe Pranav Puri, top real estate agent in Brampton. Buying or selling houses or even dealing with different people while on the deal can be exhausting and harassing if you are not well prepared.
To sell your house in Brampton-Toronto or just anywhere in the world, Pranav Puri insists that you should be well prepared for contingency. Blaming someone else or cursing the fate or even calling it a bad deal will be no use crying over spilt milk if some mishap takes place.
Here is a list of five things you must take into consideration when you wish to sell your property, particularly the house anywhere around the world:
- Keep your Valuables Safe
You do not wish to get your valuables loitered away if an untoward person visits the premises/house. Do not invite thieves/ burglars by offering your valuables as baits by leaving them in the open.
Pranav, an experienced realtor of Toronto, states that investing in a safe/locker is mandatory or you may even leave your cash and jewelry safely at a friend’s place.
- Ensure the Personal Information is Safe
Data is the king. Make sure your personal information is safe and hidden. You must be aware of the increase in identity fraudulent cases and whoever comes to buy the house may be one unscrupulous such element who may access your passwords, security codes and can then access any information, particularly financial information.
Even the personal photos and memories should not be hanging around. One, they may distract the buyer and second, you don’t want your family and kids to be in notice of anyone else to be harmed.
Cybercrime is on the rise and you must ensure your information and laptops are out of reach of the person who has to come to buy your house.
- Verification and Appointment of the Buyer’s Agent
You must not attend anyone unsolicited as this could be dangerous. If someone has to buy the house, he must be attended only after prior appointment with his name, address and phone number.
After that make sure you check the buyer’s agent’s license and experience credentials so that the deal can take-off smoothly.
Another safety requirement is to have a friend or confidante along with you so that you are not alone while showing the house. If there are walk-ins seeing the ‘For Sale’ board, check for the social security number or any other identity to make sure only a genuine, interested person walks in.
- Make the House Safe
From humane point of view make sure your house is safe as the prospective buyer could be an old man or someone with small children. Any items which can make them trip or the sharp edged tables must be taken care of.
Pranav insists on switching on all the lights irrespective of daytime or evening because of better visibility and of course, your house will look resplendent.
Any objectionable items like weapons or stack of kitchen knives must be inconspicuously stored away from the reach of the prospective buyers. You do not wish to scare them or invite any untoward incidence on your house premises.
- Trust Your Gut
The best realtor of Toronto, Pranav Puri strongly recommends that you must trust your intuition and gut feeling. If a person lingers on for too long and instead of talking sense, there could be something fishy.
If it’s a couple or more than one person, make sure they are together and do not split to divert your attention. Do not lead them, instead follow the prospective buyers in each room so that you are not backstabbed or caught unaware at any point in time.
In case something is suspicious or if you see a suspicious item around, make sure you are safe and call off the process immediately. Do not be impulsive in selling your house.
Final Thoughts on Safety
‘If it doesn’t seem right, it may be because it isn’t,’ is a saying strongly believed by Brampton realtor at Homelife. For sale of any kind of houses or property in Toronto or Greater Toronto Area, confide in Pranav Puri for making the real estate experience unique and safe. Safety and security are of paramount importance when it comes to buying/selling a property.
