Go it Alone, or Use a REALTOR?

Go it Alone, or Use a REALTOR®?

The fact is, most people who try to sell their own home end up using a REALTOR® in the end anyway. Before anybody decides to fly solo through this complex, time consuming and financially perilous process, they should consider these questions.

Will you really “save” the real estate commission?
When buyers see a home for sale ‘by the owner’, they see a bargain. They imagine the REALTORS® fee going into their pocket, not yours.

Are you familiar with real estate law?
Complicated and ever changing, real estate law governs nearly every phase of selling your home.
One wrong move and an entire deal can fall through, or worse, a lawsuit can ensue.

How many potential buyers will you reach?
Selling a home takes more than just hanging a “For Sale” sign. How will you promote your home? Will you write your own ads? How will you use the Internet, knowing that you’ll have no inside access to www.mls.ca and therefore will not be able to post your home on this service?

Do you have the time?
Promoting a home is a full time job, and you may already have one. Will you be able to take calls at any time? How about screening the callers to figure out if they’re qualified to buy your home?
Not everybody who calls is even suitable to walk through your home, but how do you tell?

Do you know the market well enough to get the most for your home?
Lacking years of experience, the average do-it-yourselfer is merely guessing at their listing price. Often they set the price too low and miss out on thousands of dollars, or they price their home too high and drive away willing buyers.

What about your selling skills?
If the personalities of prospective buyers rub you the wrong way, can you still deal with them effectively? What about your own defensiveness when you hear negative comments about your home? Best to keep it at arms length through a REALTOR®.

Do you have the negotiation skills to keep a deal on track?
When an offer comes in, emotions can run high with so much money on the line. This is why direct seller-to-buyer deals often end in disaster. REALTORS® keep it professional and are indispensable when it comes to bargaining with buyers.

What is the value that I offer?  

 My personal attention and 36 years of Experience!

 

As the Broker of Record and Owner of Homelife Nu-Key Realty I can assure you that as your Realtor, you will receive the highest level of service and expertise possible.  I will put my 36 years of experience to work for you and commit my time and knowledge to ensure you achieve your real estate goals. 

I learned selling real estate through good old hard work and perseverance. My success is attributed to personal service and focusing on my clients needs. I earn my client's trust by showing them I truly care about them by listening to them. Whether buying or selling or both, my clients and I are a team and it's important to work together to achieve success.  I follow through by being responsive and there when they need me.  

In 1992, I advanced my real estate career successfully completing the educational requirements to become a Real estate Broker and established my first real estate brokerage and in 1993 I moved to Barrie to provide services for a large Barrie builder and was responsible for selling more than one thousand homes. 

Now with 36 years under my belt, and CEO and Broker of Record of my HomeLife Brokerage, I'm still hands on and out there doing what I love. " I love helping people buy and sell real estate. I can’t imagine a better job!  Everyday I look forward to working with people and helping them achieve their real estate goals” 
  

Over the years I have gained valuable knowledge and experience as a Realtor. “True knowledge comes from learning through years of experience” and I have learned so much and I put that knowledge and experience to work every day for my clients. "Buying or selling a home is likely one of the largest financial investments you will have and it’s important to entrust someone that has the knowledge and experience that can guide you through the entire process."


My Guiding Principal has always been to live by the Golden Rule, and that is to "Treat Others As I Would Want To Be Treated" 

I look forward to the opportunity to help you with your real estate needs.
