“The platform was solid because we hadn’t expected such a response from the purchasers. And next thing you know, we were dealing with multiple offers over the list price.”
“One big benefit was there was no pressure to sell lower than asking, which saved us thousands.”
“We sold two homes with Bōde and I still use the data tools to see what the market’s doing around me. I find that really helpful.”
De-clutter and De-personalize your home; removing personal effects such as religious sentiments and personal family photos will better allow viewers to see themselves in your home. While you are de-cluttering, you might as well box up anything you don’t need access to – off-season clothes and gear could get packed up and ready for their new home.
Not all mortgages are created the same. Dust off those documents and see if you are able to seamlessly port your mortgage to a new home, if there is a penalty associated with breaking it, and any other terms relevant to the sale of your home. Reviewing these documents will also help to inform just how much equity you have in your home!
Check out Bōde’s Market Data tool to show current and historical transaction trends as well as other critical information on homes in your neighbourhood. You can also review information on similar communities to yours to arm yourself with the most current information available.
Now that you’ve seen the community-level information in your community and similar neighbourhoods, put your finger on the pulse of prospective homebuyers and look at all the recent home transactions with Bōde’s Sold Data tool. Reviewing list price vs. actual sale price, the number of time houses sat on the market, and other key metrics will put you in an optimal position to succeed when listing your home.
Eliminate any remaining blind spots by checking out Bōde’s Comparables data. The tool will assign homes a comparable score to your home and allow you to view all recent transactions specifically tailored to your home. The home’s age, style, list price, sold price, and more relevant data will all be there to support your pricing strategy.

List your home
With the comparables data you’ve reviewed and the Days on Market stats you’ve researched in your community, it is time to decide on a listing price and strategy. Complete your listing and then review and sign the listing agreement. All title holders will be required to sign the listing agreement. We will review your listing and email you once your listing is on the market! A sign will also be installed at this time.
You can edit your listing any time once it is live. Go to “My Listings” in the top menu bar and click on the pencil icon to edit. After you make your changes, click Save and we will migrate those changes to all listing sites.
You’ve probably 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.
Most agents will choose to book showings using their online booking system and we will add your email address /phone number to it. You will receive the requests through your email and via text. We will send instructions on how to get set up when your listing has been published
