WHY CHOOSE A REAL ESTATE BROKER TO BUY YOUR HOUSE, CONDO OR OTHER PROPERTY?
For most people, buying a house, a condo or any other property represents the biggest investment of their life. With myriad of factors involved, such as research, visits, offers, negotiations and counter-offers, not to mention commercial, legal and financial details, this process is far from simple, especially when one is going through it for the first time. As such, the professional services provided by a real estate broker contribute to the success of each step of the purchase transaction.
As a buyer, the client will incur no real estate brokerage fees, as these will be borne by the seller. So, why forego such a service? The real estate broker will facilitate the buying process, taking charge of each step, while serving as an advisor and seasoned negotiator. The buyer will be guided through every step of looking for a house, condo or other property, as well as the transaction itself, thereby guaranteeing peace of mind.
Each real estate broker boasts a broad field of expertise, which any property buyer can appreciate. Through their real estate brokerage training, they have access to several tools and an excellent network of contacts to properly advise their clients. As a financial advisor, building inspector and notary, a real estate broker leverages its network to facilitate every transaction, and can also provide many useful details on properties for sale.
Furthermore, their objectivity and expertise will be a boon during visits. Indeed, they will be able to remind buyers of their search criteria at all times, as well as any property details to check on before producing a promise to purchase. As such, despite emotions that may arise during the buying process, clients will be properly guided to an informed decision.
Teaming up with a real estate broker when buying a house, a condo or any other property, also means benefitting from full protection under the Real Estate Brokerage Act, which stewards the profession and protects the general public.
WHY CHOOSE A REAL ESTATE BROKER TO SELL YOUR HOUSE, CONDO OR OTHER PROPERTY?
When selling your house, condo or other property, you have two options: do business with a real estate broker or try and go it alone. With all the readily available websites aimed at selling owners, you may very well ask yourself why you would need to team up with a real estate broker. The answer is simple: any real estate transaction is intrinsically complicated, and only more so as time goes on, with conducting evaluations, negotiations, buyer qualification and inspections, filling out legal documents, discussing inclusions and exclusions, and selecting an occupancy date are but a few of a great many factors.
As real estate professionals trained under a rigorous program, real estate brokers have the necessary skills to easily guide you through each of these steps. Their know-how, contact network, knowledge of the ins and outs of any transactions and familiarity with the art of evaluating and negotiating, make them the ideal partner to sell your house, condo or other property.
According to a recent study by the OACIQ, the perception of saving money, the impression that a property will sell itself and confidence in one's own ability are the main reasons driving owners to sell their property themselves. However, sellers that choose to live by these beliefs lose out on the advantages of doing business with a real estate broker and forget that the broker is the most skilled and impartial when it comes to getting the best price under the best conditions.
The seller also forgets that most buyers are already calling upon the services of a real estate broker and will therefore not be interested in properties sold by their owner, as their broker will not assist them in the buying process. Similarly, accessing Quebec's real estate broker through the inter-agency registration service (Centris, MLS) enables owners to gain a greater deal of visibility among buyers and other real estate brokers working for them. Furthermore, taking charge of each step of the entire transaction, including property visits, negotiations and contract signing, is a process that calls for extensive experience and hours of work. By doing business with a real estate broker, owners free themselves of these tasks, thereby saving time, avoiding mistakes and maintaining their peace of mind.
