Our services include connecting possible buyers with the right home to suit their needs, help clients sell their home and often be the one who keeps the negotiations moving.
The procedure is to meet with a client, discuss what they are looking for and work to find a property that fits their budget, lifestyle and can be their home for their future. Sometimes the client is looking for rental properties or to sell a property, either way the most effective way to start, is to sit down with your real estate agent and discuss the options available. Our job is to take care of as many details as possible, so you have the least amount of interruption in your normal daily routine.
We have the know-how to discuss an interested buyer, there is no personal attachment to the home by the real estate agent, and clients can ask questions more freely. Often many people are just looking for prices, usually if he/she is working with an agent they are serious. When an offer comes we negotiate between the purchaser and the vendor to get an agreeable price to suit them both. We are the liaison and usually clients can be more honest, also we can be more diplomatic in the negotiations, once the price is confirmed there is a written signed offer that is binding, subject to the conditions of sale.
We usually forward the signed offer to the financial institute involved along with information about the property which the bank may need and follow up to ensure the financing is completed in a timely manner. Once we receive the letter of approval from financial institution, we then forward proper documents to specified lawyers in order to move forward with the sale. We guide and offer advice to both the purchaser and/or vendor to proceed through the next steps such as arranging insurance, hydro name change, or any other process needed to complete the transaction. All of this is in order to have the transfer of funds and keys happen on the proper date of closing to suit the clients.
Behind the scenes there is a lot of preparation to sell your home, and we offer a Free Market Evaluation to determine the current market value of the home. We also make suggestions to ensure your home has the best appearance to market your home or property. Often vendors incur unnecessary expenses when planning to sell their home. Once we put our "For Sale" sign on your lawn, your home is in view of the passer-by, that is only the beginning, then we really work for you. Finding the right purchaser for your property takes knowledge and patience.
Our marketing tools include an up-to-date, professional website, an Instagram page, Facebook Business Page, Kijiji, Down homer Magazine, Mall board display, 24 hour TV roll up (across from the Scotia Bank-inside the Labrador Mall), we display flyers on bulletin boards, hand out feature sheets as well as copy of listings of homes to every possible client we can. We offer feedback on showings and encourage you to contact us with any questions or concerns. Many of our contacts are through word of mouth and referrals (having been in the area for 47 years) or from new people moving into the area who have heard about us or found us on the web.
When selling, it is wise to use a real estate agent to offer professionalism, marketing & knowledge for a potential sale. Do you want people just dropping in on you at any time? We can help you save unnecessary expenses to prepare for selling your home, and to avoid the uncomfortable feeling when friends try to make a deal with you and don`t want to pay the price you want. We suggest a fair market value, yet you make the final decision what your property will be listed for. We look forward to working for you and promise to do our very best for you..
