In the last few years the real estate market in Montreal has been more or less a buyer’s market. Most of the buyers will try hard to bargain and they may simply walk off from the deal if the seller is not able to do the required repairs before selling the property. The seller of the Montreal property on the other hand should anticipate the requirements of the buyers so that they can ensure that their Montreal property sells at a decent price.
Many sellers of property are now turning to prelisting inspections for enhancing the stability of their homes. In this way the sellers can fix problems before he sees the buyer get disappointed and walk out of his property premises. Let us have a look at the successful killers for Montreal real estate transactions.

Even the electrical problems such as worn out switches and old panels should be replaced by the seller. The fire risk because of electrical problems can be a hazard for the buyer.
The seller of Montreal property should also take care of any structural defects in the house. No buyer would like to buy a house and then spend additional on structural repairs. Let a structural engineer inspect your property and make suggestions to you. Today many brokers in Montreal are suggesting the home sellers to go for exterior insulation finish systems. These systems are a good alternative to the traditional stucco. In case the insulation is not done properly then it can lead to trapped moisture behind the walls.
