My specialty is buying. I started a development company (www.checkoutthishouse.ca) which buys, renovates and then delivers amazing, design-forward homes. I research the market on a daily basis to find the best deals in up-and-coming neighbourhoods, and work with a team to oversee all aspects of the renovation project, from start to finish. I can use this insight and expertise to ensure you get
what you want, at the right price, in the right area. I will set up tailored auto-searches
ensuring you are notified of suitable homes the moment they hit the market. I
also provide cost comparison and market analysis for every property in which
you are interested. Try me out, commitment free. I’ll set you up with property
list search and start providing market insight on properties you flag... I’m
confident you’ll want me at your side when you’re ready to purchase.
Selling is the easy part. Ottawa is currently a Seller's market. Days-on-market
continue to decline, and inventory has fallen to its lowest level in several years.
The most important factor for your home to sell is the selling price. In this
market, if listed at fair value, it is going to sell… and probably quickly. If
you sign up with a realtor with a common commission of 5% (commission rates
vary in the marketplace) and sell for $407,000 (average sale price of a
residential property sold in Ottawa in 2018), you will pay over $20,000 + HST
in commissions! So far in 2019
residential properties are only remaining on the market for just over 30 days
before selling. 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.
