Buyers and sellers can view properties online, so what value do I, as a REALTOR®, really add to a real estate transaction?
1. I am a highly skilled negotiator
I am trained and experienced in negotiation, and my instinct to say the right things at the right time can make your transaction a great success. When it comes to getting a fair price and a good deal, you want a professional that knows how to represent your interests during a real estate transaction.
2. I have inside knowledge
I know about ALL local listings - new to the market, price reduced, sold, expired, and historical data including "days on market" - and can explain why certain homes have sold for more/less.
3. I know how to make the market work for you
When your career is working directly with home buyers and sellers, your knowledge of the current market and statistics is second-to-none. Is there a type of home more buyers are currently looking for? Is there an up-and-coming neighbourhood that's about to take off? What helps sell a home faster and for more money? Ask me!
4. I make the legal process flow
Real estate transactions are full of detailed legal documents and conditions that are strict. Not having the right forms, knowing the right language to use for each condition of the sale, or overlooking an unexpected contract term can make you miss a sale or, worse, end up in legal trouble. I know the process inside-out and will explain each detail to you.
5. I know what the best deal looks like - for you
You want the best price in a specific market today. I know the best timing for sales and emerging trends in your area that aren't captured in the current prices of homes. There are many aspects of a home that have hidden value and are often missed!
6. I will advise you on improvements to make, staging tips, pricing strategies, and offer you exceptional service to make the whole process as exciting and positive as it should be.
7. Project and Contract Management - Included with my services!
Minor Home Improvement items can make a major impact on value in the eyes of a buyer. Examples include small wall and ceiling damage, broken tiles, and damaged caulking around windows and sinks. If these deficiencies are not addressed, a prospective buyer may be discouraged if a comparable property is available. I offer to Project Manage minor Home Improvement projects to maximize the appeal of your home!
8. My Team
When you hire me as your Brokerage Representative, you get a team of people with the highest of quality standards working for you!
-An indenpendent Mortgage Broker that works for you, and NOT the banks.
-A Home Improvement Specialist that can take care of those minor definciencies that you don't have the time to fix yourself.
