THE SELLING PROCESS
Even if you have bought or sold a home before, the process can still be confusing. This roadmap chart will help you better understand the steps involved in your transaction. My job is to tie them together as smoothly as possible for you, keeping you informed every step of the way.
PLEASE NOTE: As of June 15th, 2018 REALTORS may no longer represent BOTH the Buyer & Seller in the same Real Estate transaction. New disclosures for sellers & buyers, were instituted by the Superintendent of Real Estate and are now manditory.
WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU:
The REALTOR who lists a property for sale can no longer represent a Buyer wanting to purchase that same property. (This was known as "Limited Dual Agency").
While a Buyer may still represent themselves (no REALTOR representation) when purchasing a home, as of June 15, 2018, new disclosures will need to be signed by the Buyer alerting them to the inherent risks of doing this.
Why List your home with me?
Not all Realtors market their listings for todays sohisticated technology savy buyers, we do and it`s important for you to get your property in front of as many potential buyers as possible! Your listing has to be online and featured and advertised on Social Media to get in front of the buyers and that is where the buyers are looking.
In todays market it takes more than just a lawn sign to get your house sold. It is estimated that over 95% of buyers now start their search online. This number is increasing every year. Smart phones & tablets now drastically outsell desktop and laptop computers.
Print ads do not deliver the value anymore in todays market. Print ads last a afew days at best and reach only those who receive or pick a paper in a very closed and immediate market vicinity. One photograph and description in a paper or magazine is not enough to attract buyers anymore. Buyers today want, many pictures, video, virtual tours, walk scores, a map and school informtion.

Drones For Aerial Perspective
Drones can be a valuable tool when used correctly to introduce and showcase larger properties. Used togther with ground images of both the interior and exterior they produce a compelling story of the property to prospective buyers by showing them exactly the lay of the land and how the buildings are situated on the property. We use only licensed and insured operators with professional results.

Pricing Your Home
When you think about it, all of the other homes listed for sale in your immediate neighbourhood are competing with your home for the same buyers basically.
Using SnapStats market information we will show you what is selling and in what price range to give us a better handle and understanding of what the market is telling us.
We will help you price your home competitively to attract qualified buyers. The way we do this is by generating a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) report, which will show you a range of prices being paid for homes in your area.
