Let's Get Started!

Complete Real Estate Seller's Guide

Are you considering selling your home or investment property in Surrey or the Fraser Valley and don't quite know where to start?

Why not start by watching this COMPLETE Guide to Selling Real Estate to answer most of your questions or provide you with a base as to how best to qualify an agent to help you sell your home and what to expect during the home selling process?

If you would like to discuss how best to market and sell your property with our team, go ahead and click the "Let's Get Started!" button. 

We can't wait to hear from you.

Before We Begin

We must discuss agency

Before we are permitted to offer advice or learn private information about you, we must disclose to you the form titled "Disclosure of Representation in Trading Services". When you certify that you understand the form, we can proceed as normal. 

This form is designed to educate the public on the benefits of hiring your own representation vs the risks of going it alone. Discussing this form up front promotes the highest level of professionalism and that is what we are all about! And no need to worry, it is not a contract.

Let's get right to it...what it is going to cost?

Real Estate Fees

How much does it cost to sell my home?

Have you ever wondered how much a real estate agent or brokerage charges, and why it seems so hard to find this information? In the video above you will find a full explanation about how real estate commissions in British Columbia are charged and how we ended up with such a wacky system.  

Then, once you know how much your agent or brokerage charges, the simple British Columbia real estate fee calculator on this page will help you estimate your total costs and your net sale price after commission. All you need to know is the offer price, gross listing commissions and buyer agent commission or "buyer agent split".

Marketing Your Property, Rather Than Ourselves

When you hire my team and I, we offer three different fee structures complete with varying levels of marketing. We want to give you the ultimate control over both your marketing package and the costs associated with selling your home.

For a comprehensive explanation of our three marketing packages complete with fee breakdown and why you might want to consider going with one package over the others, check out our Karrasch Real Properties Marketing Packages and Fees for Service video.

The backbone of our business is our repeat clients and their referrals of friends and family. Every year our team conducts over 80% of our business from good old fashioned word of mouth. Our goal is to provide you with such an amazing client experience, that you are compelled to join our long list of client advocates and refer us to others in the future.


The Power Of Choice

Find the package that fits you

We understand that our clients have different needs and goals. That is why, we offer three different marketing packages designed to provide you with the level of service and marketing you desire for your specific situation.  This provides you with choice and gives you full power over how your property is exposed to the market. 

Keep reading to learn more about our marketing packages, rates and each of their specific results.


Essentials For Your Property

Our Exposure Package is designed to provide your listing access to the MLS® system and expose your property to the masses. The Exposure Package provides you with what we consider to be the essentials when listing your property for sale in today's market. 



Better Service, Better Results

Our Professional Package builds upon our Exposure Package and includes a higher level of service for you, employing enhanced listing features designed to attract more buyers. More buyers means more showings and a faster sale at a higher price.



Nothing But The Best

In 2012 our team designed what is now our most popular option, our Smart Marketing Package. This package's innovative features and stellar results consistently achieves a higher than average selling price for our Sellers over the competition year in and year out.

Professional Photos

Attract more Buyers

Many agents will play photographer and take their own pictures with an amateur point and click camera or even worse, their smartphone. Usually, this is done to save a few bucks as the cost of marketing can get expensive. We know our team is great at selling real estate, negotiating contracts and quickly identifying your next home. We also know that we are not good at photography. This is why we hire professional photographers to shoot high-resolution pictures of your home. The exact number of photos will depend on the size of your property and its features. 

Why We Stage

Because it works

As part of our Professional and Smart Marketing packages, we offer a complimentary consultation with our staging consultant 5-7 days prior to professional photos being taken. Our goal is to work with what you have, to showcase the beauty of your home. Properly staged properties sell quicker, for more money and help buyers see your home more objectively. Have a look below at real-life photos of a listing as another agent showed it on the MLS®, and then how we prepared it for a quick and successful sale after the original listing expired.

Buyer's Agent Incentive

Sell for more

In 2012 we started offering different marketing packages tailored to each of our clients' needs. Our Smart Marketing package is by far our most successful package to date. Our innovative Smart Marketing system with increased Buyer's Agent Incentive has consistently helped our clients sell for an average of 2.5% more than our Professional Marketing package, every year since it was introduced. 

Power Opens

More traffic in less time

We make our open houses more effective than traditional open houses by advertising them for shorter periods of time. This causes a sense of urgency for Buyers to attend your open house over others. Another benefit of the short window of time to view the house is that your home will have more Buyers attending at the same time. 

Buyers will feel a greater sense of urgency and this will encourage faster and better offers on your home. 

Virtual 360

Give Buyers a better feel

Photos are often not enough. In today's world of marketing, Buyers want to be able to view your home online before viewing your home in person. To give Buyers a better feel of the layout, design, and flow of your home, we offer 360-degree virtual tours that let the Buyer pan left and right, up and down, through a number of rooms in your home via online virtual tours. The number of virtual tours taken of your home will depend on its size.

Floor Plans

What the Buyers want

After careful analysis of all different types of marketing, we have determined that although HD video and drones look amazing, they are a tool for the listing agent to secure your listing rather than an effective aid to getting your home sold. 

We have identified that a floor plan of your home is what the buyer really wants and one of the strongest tools at our disposal to get buyers in your front door. More showings mean more potential Buyers and a quicker sale. 

Pay It Forward Boxes

Because we know a lot of people moving

We keep new and gently used boxes in stock to help make your move easier. When you need boxes for your move, just ask. Once you are all moved, we love to recycle your old boxes for the use of our next clients, so we will arrange to pop in and pick them up from your new home and "pay it forward". 

Client Events

More than just real estate

We want our relationship with you to be more than just a transaction in real estate. Every year we put on 3 major client events that we would love for you to attend. Each and every one of our events are designed to show you our appreciation for your trust in us. All of our events are also held in benefit of the Surrey Food Bank, our charity of choice. We encourage you to attend our events not only to have a good time but also to donate what you can in support of those in need.
