Selling your home takes more than just pretty pictures and signs. It takes expert knowledge of the local area, consistent and targeted marketing, and strong negotiating skills.
Having an agent with all those assets goes a long way but when you add that with someone who understands your goals and will stop at nothing to achieve them, that’s the difference with Ralph Ciancio Homes.

If you’re thinking about selling your first home, there’s a lot you should know and if you’ve been a part of the selling experience before but haven’t in many years, a lot may have changed.
Here are a few tips to help you understand what is involved in the process.
The main 3 factors that will help sell your property are Location, Price, and Condition. There’s not much you can do about where your home is located but you still have control over plenty of aspects that can maximize your return.
Simply putting your home on the market is not enough. There’s a chance that it may still sell but the question is how much you could have made if it was sold the right way. How a property is presented both in-person and online makes a huge difference. You’ll need an accurate description of the property and a marketing strategy with excellent photos and videos to find the right buyer.
Work with a qualified, experienced real estate agent to decide on the right price for your home based on recent sales in the area. You will most likely profit more by pricing it correctly which helps sell faster, than by overpricing it and having to wait.
If your agent has a history of selling homes, they will have suggestions on what can be changed to increase the success of the sale. Having a Staging expert, or even better an agent who is a staging expert will help you even more. They can provide advice, fixtures, and furniture and make minor upgrades like decluttering, painting, or landscaping to make the first impression of your home a great one.
Once you’ve signed all the necessary paperwork and received your payment, the only step remaining is to move. Pro Sellers usually make preparations in advance ensuring that utilities are shut off for the closing date and that everything is packed and ready to go.
Ralph and his team have exceeded our expectations and then some. They helped us purchase our new home and guided us every step of the way in selling our home of 10 years (literally every step). They have gone out of their way on numerous occasions just to make our move more manageable. They have all kinds of gestures in place that we did not even think of or would have ever considered making selling and moving go smoothly. We could not have done this without such a wonderful team. Not only are they professional and know the ins and outs of the current housing market, but they are also the most genuine, honest, and friendliest people you will ever me...— Angie & Warren
Thank you to Ralph and the Helping You Move team! Your entire team is knowledgeable, kind, patient, responsive, and trustworthy. Ralph and his team made us feel like a priority through the whole process of buying and selling our home. Ralph was very knowledgeable when looking at potential homes with his previous experience in construction and offered great perspective and problem-solving when touring homes. Thank you for safely helping us buy our new home! The services that the Helping You Move team offers their clients when preparing to sell their homes are very helpful and made the process much less stressful. We would highly recommend your servic...— Mary-Anne & Nick S.
I thought Ralph and his team have been outstanding – particularly in setting our selling price, the timing of the listing, and particularly in people and negotiating skills. My only comment of suggestion would be to be more cautious with other agents visiting our home with their clients as there were a few times that lights were left on and the house was not left secure – doors and windows not locked. Ralph and his team have certainly gone over and above our expectations. Not just in selling and purchasing a home, but in being patient with us through the process as well as assisting us in staging and presenting our home to sell. We would certainly r...— Ron H.
We experienced both, the buying and selling processes with Ralph and his team. Ralph explained each step clearly before the actual process started. This explanation step did not only help us to understand the whole buying/selling process but also aided us to plan and act accordingly. We are grateful for Ralph’s immense knowledge about the neighborhoods, the structure of the houses, whole buying and selling process. Everyone on the team was able to meet and exceed our expectations for both buying and selling processes. Thanks to him and the team, we found our future home in Markham.— Yasemin K.
Ralph and his team were very helpful in outlining the selling process and preparing the house including staging some rooms and cleaning windows. The photos and video material and brochures were outstanding. We were kept well informed of the progress. The system of setting up the appointments for showings is simple and clear. Ralph and his team were responsive to our questions. Ralph worked hard to get a good price for our home and we are very pleased with the outcome. We highly recommend Ralph and his team if you are considering selling or buying.— Andrew R.
We recently had a great experience working with Ralph to lease our investment unit to excellent tenants. This was not our first time working with Ralph and his team, and it won’t be our last. They are efficient, friendly, and responsive with customer service that is second to none. Ralph is knowledgeable, honest, and an overall excellent human. We look forward to working with this awesome team again in the future.— Andrea B.
