My specialty is buying. I started a development company (www.checkoutthishouse.ca) to buy, renovate and deliver design-forward homes. I research the market on a daily basis, and can use this insight and expertise to help you find your next home.
Ottawa remains a Seller's market. The most important factor to sell your home is the asking price. In this
market, if listed at fair value, it is going to sell… probably with multiple offers. If
you sign up with a realtor with a common commission of 5% (commission rates
vary in the marketplace) and sell for $700,000, you will pay $35,000 + HST
in commissions. Ask yourself, what are you really getting for this fee?: your
home listed on MLS; digital photos; maybe an open house; a printout spec sheet.
Then the market does the rest. Save your money.
Advice on Asking Price
Contact me, and I'll provide you my assessment of what your asking price should be, with the market analysis to back it up. Your property will attract a buyer if priced right. Paying thousands more in commissions
is not what sells your property.
