1) Remove the SIM before selling the phone. Also reset it to factory spec's.
2) Most phones will be locked to Koodo. You can have it unlocked if you wish, which will make it more salable.  Nexus phones are unlocked.

Unlocks are never free from Koodo. The fee is 50$

You can find third party unlockers on eBay or the Web who will provide you the same unlock code for much less.

Unless you have an iPhone, and if that's the case then 50$ is a bargain.
