Selling a home should be a positive experience. Removing “worry” from the equation means entrusting your property to a qualified professional – but not just any professional will do. Mark Hammer brings decades of experience in the Vancouver area to bat for your property.
You need a realtor who doesn’t just know the ins and outs of the market, but will actually use that knowledge to capture the highest market value possible.

Planting a “for sale” sign in the front lawn will do little to sell your Vancouver property, let alone for its highest value. Mark Hammer’s marketing expertise ensures that your property is visible to the audiences most likely to perk up at the sight of your home. Further, an in-depth and long-term knowledge of the Vancouver real estate market means that your home will be optimally priced with your goals in mind.
When to Sell Vancouver Property
There has long been fear of the Vancouver real estate bubble. It is natural with the market seeing such a rapid increase in prices over a relatively short period of time. While we cannot predict the future, what we can tell you is that Vancouver’s housing market is continuing to see first time investors enter the market.
When it comes to deciding whether or not to sell your Vancouver real estate, consider what your goals are right now, and how they might change over the next five years. Is selling your home going to help you accomplish those goals?
What to Fix Up When Selling a Vancouver House
If you are trying to maximize the value of your home, it is worth taking a critical look at its current state. For most sellers, there is room for improvement aesthetically. Unless you are prepared to make major renovations, here are a few areas to look at when selling your home:
What is the “curb appeal”? Is your property attractive from the roadside?
Could the interior use a fresh coat of paint?
Is your lighting making the home appear older than it is?
Are any surfaces (floors or countertops) needing repair?
Naturally, you could spend a significant amount of time sprucing up your property before selling it. At the end of the day, time is money.
