The real estate market for the Happy Valley area of Langford over the last four months, is experiencing some real competition.  Particularly in the single family houses priced between 400 - 600K.

 As in any market, if your home is not priced within market value, it isn’t going to sell.  What you will get is a listing sitting on the market with a few lookers but no buyers. Why?  Because it is far too easy to hop in the car after looking at a home and going off to see the next one which is very similar to yours but it is priced lower.  It could also be newer too!

 Sellers have to be especially committed to selling their homes and do whatever it takes to achieve a done deal.  You simply cannot just stick a sign on the front lawn and post your house on the MLS and wait for the offers to come flooding in.  Although it can happen but chances are it will take a little more effort than that.

 Happy Valley is a very attractive area for first time home buyers, families and people who enjoy a quiet community that although isn’t too far away from Victoria, but is close enough to Metchosin and Sooke to enjoy countless hiking trails and beaches.

 To really sell your home in Happy Valley you will need to price it competitively, clean, de-clutter and stage it if necessary to make an impression on buyers.  With so much new construction available to choose from, it is very important to make your home as attractive as possible to win over buyers.

You also need a Realtor to not just “list” your home, but to market it too. Hiring a professional Real Estate Consultant will certainly help you answer any questions about getting your home sold and will guide you in the right direction to getting it done in the least amount of time and help you get the most amount of money.
