Represent Your Best Interests with a Licensed Realtor
When you have decided to buy or sell a home, the services of a qualified real estate professional are of utmost importance.
I have a good working knowledge of local real estate market conditions, and am prepared to deliver a high standard of service to customers, and have the support of a large real estate company. Most importantly, I will save you time and money. Keep in mind that in most cases the commission for my services is paid by the vendor of the home you choose, not by you. So why not have your best interests protected?
Here are the advantages of working with a sales agent:
- Agents are experienced negotiators who will manage your offers and counter-offers.
- An agent is familiar with the neighbourhood and can give you information on local real estate values, taxes, utility costs, services and amenities.
- An agent is familiar with the entire home purchasing process and can advise you of your legal and financial options as well as recommend appraisal, home inspection and contracting services.
- An agent can pinpoint homes that fit your needs and dismiss those that do not, saving you time. An agent knows the potential problem areas in a home and can guide you away from “lemons.”
Have the Home Inspected
Buying a home is one of the most important investment decisions you will make in your lifetime. As such, it makes sound financial sense to enlist the services of a qualified home inspection company to ensure your home is as solid and secure on the inside as it is on the outside.
A home inspection will determine the structural and mechanical soundness of your home. Your home inspector will identify existing and potential problem areas, suggest practical low-cost solutions, and provide estimates regarding costs for any work required. Shortly after the inspection has taken place, a report summarizing the findings is generally provided.
By commissioning a home inspection prior to purchase, you’re protecting both yourself and your investment, as well as buying a little peace-of-mind.
Home inspection costs often range according to size, age, and location of the home. I can recommend a reputable home inspection service or arrange for a home inspector to visit your property.
