Here's What Happens Next

Step 1:

Enter Your Address & Info

The most important information I need is your address. I'll also need the best contact information for me to send the report to.

Step 2:

I Get To Work

With my exclusive access to past sales close to your home, knowledge of the current market, and your home's unique features, I'll calculate an estimated home value.

Step 3:

Your Report Is Ready!

I'll send over your accurate home value report as soon as possible. Even if you're not planning on selling anytime soon, knowing the value can help you plan for the future.

So, how do you determine my home's value?

There are hundreds of factors that I take into consideration when estimating your home's value, and no two reports are the same. I first take a look at your address. This allows me to see how much neighboring homes have sold for, the desirability of the neighborhood you live in, unique features of your home and the surrounding geographical area, and many more factors. After I have a good idea of what that looks like, I then go more in-depth with my research, including checking the condition of your home, taking into consideration any updates you've made that could make it worth more than your neighbor's. All of this is done by a human being. None of my home value reports run on an algorithm, and this information isn't available to me or you at the push of a button.

Shouldn't we overprice my home at the beginning so that we can create a bidding war?

If you’re like most people that I meet with, you think that the longer your home stays on the market, the more offers will come in, creating competition around your home, resulting in the highest offer possible. 

It’s basically like an auction, right? Wrong. The longer your home stays on the market, the less likely it will sell for asking price (or above). 

Why? Well, if you go to an auction, the bidding price is set, and offers go up as time goes on. But your home isn’t a rare piece of art. Amongst a sea of other homes for sale, yours will quickly become stale and buyers will wonder why it hasn’t sold yet.

According to a study by Zillow, homes that were on the market for about two months sold at 5% below asking price, and homes that were on the market for the longest amount of time (eleven months on average) sold at 12% below list price. 

Meanwhile, the homes that ended up selling at or above listing price sold right away.

Having an accurate, and more importantly, realistic pricing strategy from the start is how your home will be sold for the most money and quickly. You don’t want to price your home too low and neither do I. But you also don’t want to let it sit on the market for too long.

"Mathieu is amazing and went above and beyond to help us find our home here in Kelowna. He made us feel welcome and took the time to get to know us and our needs. He was available for us to call them night or day with any questions we had. He looked out for our best interest and always made sure we understood the process involved from start to finish. He is very knowledgeable about Kelowna and the surrounding areas. I recommended him to my parents and they have since bought their first home through Kelowna homes and are very pleased. I fully recommend them to friends and family.
