Marketing Your Home
Marketing your property is one of the key factors in selling in a timely manner. To ensure your listing reaches a broad audience our listings are showcased not only on Realtor.ca (the single largest resource available today) but on the Royal LePage website which is chalked full of information and often referred to by many Buyers during their search.
We also have a shared feed with several other Brokerages websites and of course will showcase it on our own.
Combined with the online placements we do plenty of print advertising in a variety of different publications including the local newspaper, The Real Estate Book and a couple of magazines. We also believe in the good old fashioned Open House to get Buyers through the door in a no pressure environment.
Our past Seller clients are constantly confirming that our practice works by referring their friends and
family to our team. This is because they’ve experienced our attention to detail and complete seller
services package and want their loved ones to get the opportunity. We realize that in the Muskoka Real
Estate market it takes a package of services to advance from an idea to sell through a complex process
which culminates in a Seller leaving the closing table happy and with a cheque!
We’re not doing our sellers a service by misleading them or letting them proceed without a thorough, honest and objective evaluation of their property prior to establishing a list price and going to market. Let us prepare our opinion of market value as well as ideas and strategies to improve how your property will compare in the current market environment.
Regardless of Market conditions, buyers are always trying to pay the lowest price or negotiate for seller concessions. We deal with this every day, and we’ll help you to respond to Offers and counter-offers rationally to achieve the very best end result.
Property List Pricing
Properties listed at the right price sell fastest and put the most money into their Sellers’ pockets. Overpricing is a poor practice that can keep a property on the market longer than necessary and end up with price reductions and low–ball offers.
Overpricing is often a tactic used by Realtors to “buy” a listing that they would really like to have but does not do the Sellers any favours by promising more than can be reasonably delivered.
Using a research-based approach and knowing the market fully before publishing a list price gets a property more activity and ultimately attracts better Offers.
Inspections & Repair Negotiations
Price negotiations are only the beginning. Once an Agreement is accepted there are conditions to fulfill, inspections to get past and information to provide to several sources. Any of these items can result in further negotiations and can make or break a deal. The Cleland team is experienced in all of the aspects of the process and can help identify potential issues that could arise and suggest solutions to combat them prior to becoming a problem. We can also suggest service providers for a variety of different disciplines to help remedy any problems that may surface in the course of the process.
"We feel lucky to have Dan as our agent. We have done 3 transactions with Dan, and wouldn't consider using anyone else. Whether you are buying or selling a property, it is the biggest financial decision of your life. Daniel always kept us updated every step of the way throughout each process. He is not only very responsive to our questions but also very accommodating to our wants and needs. Daniel's knowledge of the market and negotiation really helped us secure our dream property while getting us over asking on the sale of our property! We would highly recommend to anyone to put their trust in Daniel to represent them as their agent."

"My wife and I worked from out-of-province with Wendy to buy a home in Bracebridge. She initially provided us with ongoing listing and sale information prior to meeting with her. She arranged viewings with little notice, arrived on time, and then gave us adequate time to discuss the relative merits of those properties between ourselves.
Once we had chosen a house, she gave advice regarding purchase strategy and offering price, and prepared an offer to purchase while explaining its terms with us in depth. In presenting the offer, she insisted on meeting with the vendor herself, rather than allowing the vendor’s agent to do so.
Once the transaction was completed, Wendy continued to respond to our inquiries, including arranging further inspections and the appointment of a solicitor. The entire process was well-handled and Wendy’s professionalism throughout was much appreciated. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable real estate agent in the markets she serves.”

"Wendy and Daniel were referred to us for our move from the GTA to Muskoka. We are grateful for their local knowledge, expertise and honesty.

"Working with Dan Cleland made the home buying process a great experience he was very professional and knowledgable, he answered all of my questions promptly and was very patient with me as I had many concerns and requests with the unique type of property I was buying. Dan went the extra mile even after the closing, continuing to maintain a professional relationship as he helped get me through some ongoing hurdles. I would highly recommend working with Dan, and will be using him again myself going forward.”
