Choose a REALTOR you feel confident can turn your dreams into reality. Once you have, here’s what to expect.
The Voice of Experience
“I will not take it for granted that you know all the in’s and out’s of the buying/selling process. Instead, I will provide you with a full explanation of what to expect – and that’s important so you’re not faced with any surprises along the way.”
Its that attention to the client and the process that has won Dave an assortment of Awards including 3 Presidents Gold Awards.
Assessing Your Needs
One of the first questions a REALTOR will ask is, Why are you moving?” Together we will explore your wants and needs, any time constraints that you might have (perhaps imposed by the need to relocate for employment), your financial situation and any future plans.
Part of my job will also be to help you decide where you want to live and what type of house is best for you. There are plenty of housing options available in the marketplace – new homes, resale homes, townhouses, condominiums. As a REALTOR I can help you choose the one that best suits your current and projected lifestyle.
It’s all part of getting to know you so your purchase will be handled to your complete satisfaction.
Targeting Your Dream Home
As your REALTOR I will help you identify what you want in your new residence. A pool? A Garage? An extra room? A particular building design? What about the neighbourhood? Proximity to schools or work? What are the costs to upgrade a home?
We will compare your needs, wants and budget with what is available on the market – and consider options that save you time and effort.
I will accompany you as you view houses and help you assess their suitability and price. As an expert on a property, with a vast housing background as a builder and a REALTOR I can provide facts on the neighbourhood, the cost of heating, the condition of the furnace, and so on.
Access to MLS
Multiple Listing Service or MLS is an exclusive service accessible only through a REALTOR – and it can be a valuable tool. Through MLS, the details of a wide variety of listed properties are made available to me, your REALTOR. That can save you a tremendous amount of time and effort in your hunt for the right home.
With a broad and current knowledge of the financing choices available to home buyers – and there is an often confusing array, I will discuss options with you. At your request, I can assist in evaluating mortgage options and get you connected with a Mortgage Specialist/Broker.
A Skillful Negotiator
As a REALTOR and a Builder I am experienced in arranging fair deals. I have been negotiating contracts for years and will assist you in negotiating an offer, acting as a mediator to head off potential conflicts between you and the seller, and draw up a legally binding contract.
Usually, the REALTOR will be paid from the proceeds of the sale. The listing agreement typically states the REALTOR’s fee.
Buying a home can be an exasperating and time-consuming experience. But not if you enlist the services of a REALTOR. As a Real Estate Professional and a Housing Expert I understand the market and know exactly what is available and can match your needs and budget to your new home efficiently and effectively.
