You Know The Saying: You Get What You Pay For?

October 30, 2011- Even though it may seem to some that those in the real estate profession earn high fees and that anyone should be able to sell their own home, get stats on past sales, etc., remember that we are talking about the largest purchase/ investment one can make and, generally, hundreds of thousands of dollars are at stake. There is a big difference between arranging your trip to Hawaii on your own and selling your house. Seek experienced professionals in order to best position yourself and your property in the marketplace.

For example, I was astonished last week when a woman emailed me to inquire about a listing of mine which she saw advertised on a site called “Zoocasa”. I had sold that property over 8 months before plus I had never authorized an ad on that web site. I suggested to the woman she might want to use the services of a good buyer sales representative as the sites she is searching on are not reliable.

Meanwhile, the very next day I saw this article in the Globe and Mail, which just reinforces the problem. Be smart: hire real estate professionals. The good ones will earn you so much more on your investment  than you possibly could, (besides protecting you from potential fraud, protecting your privacy, and removing a multitude of other stresses.) Please read the full Globe and Mail story.
