Frequently Asked Questions
When’s the best time to sell?
This is one of the most common questions we are asked. The answer depends on your goal.
If you are selling and buying in the same market, any time is the best time. In a seller’s market, you’ll get more for your home, but you’re likely to pay more for your next home. In a buyer’s market, you’ll pay less for your next home, but you’ll also have a harder time selling your home.
If you’re selling in order to move to a more affordable market, get in touch with us. We’ll help you make the most of your transition.
If you’re exiting the real estate market for any reason, get in touch with us. Home values have dropped significantly since February, 2022, but we expect them to begin climbing again later in 2023.
If you’re an investor, looking to cash out on your investment, now may be a good time to sell, depending on your goals. We’ll guide you through every option, based upon the statistics and data. Some of the factors that we help you consider are future market value (property appreciation), current leverage in your property (borrowing power), and the rental market trends, among others.
How do we sell for more?
We consistently sell for more than our competition. There are several ways we do this:
1. We let you know how to present your property in the best possible way to attract the largest group of buyers. You can benefit from our in-house staging in order to make your home as attractive as possible.
2. In order to reach the largest market of buyers, we are members of the 2 largest real estate boards in Ontario (Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB) and the Realtor’s Association of Hamilton/Burlington (RAHB)).
3. We prepare a roadmap for your listing, with strategies to maximize the return. Every property is different, so we’ll customize a strategy for you that will get you the most and the best offers on the table.
4. We are experienced negotiators. We leave no stone unturned to get you every last dollar.
What are your rates?
Buyers, you don’t pay anything. We are remunerated by the sellers. Also, you won’t be locked into a contract with us. We want you to work with us because you love working with us, not because you’re contractually obligated to work with us.
Sellers, you have a choice of Listing Bundles, customizable to suit your specific needs, with commission as low as 1.6% plus HST. Each time, you get personalized, hands-on service, and regardless of which bundle you choose, we go a head above for you!
