Looking for a WEST ISLAND home?...something in the heart of MONTREAL?...a LAURENTIAN summer or winter Holiday Retreat?

A FEW 'DON'T' TIPS TO SELLING

TWO’S A COUPLE & THREE’S A CROWD...
Don’t have too many people present during a home inspection, since the potential buyers will feel like an intruder and want to hurry through your house.

MUSIC SOOTHES THE SAVAGE BEAST...
But not the potential buyer. When showing your house, turn down a loud radio or television. Let the agent and buyer talk freely and not be distracted.

SILENCE IS GOLDEN...
Be courteous and friendly, but don’t try to 'force' conversation with a potential buyer. He’s there to inspect your home.

STAY IN THE BACKGROUND...
Your broker knows the buyer’s needs and desires and can better emphasize the virtues of your home when you’re not 'tagging along'. If there are any questions, he will call you.

DON’T PUT THE CART BEFORE THE HORSE...
Trying to sell the prospective purchasers any of the furniture or furnishings which you’re not taking with you, before they’ve purchased your home, can often lose the sale... so 'cool it'.

A WORD-TO-THE WISE...
Let your salesman discuss the selling price, terms, possession and other factors with the customer. He’s been trained and has experience, so let him bring your negotiations to a satisfactory conclusion.
