When Is the Right Time to Talk to a REALTOR®?


When would you talk to a car salesperson, for example? Probably, only once you’re ready to buy a new car. You would maybe do some initial research (perhaps on the internet), get an idea of what you want, and then go to the dealership to meet a salesperson, test drive the car and make the purchase, right??


Now, although that approach may work when you’re buying a car, it’s not the best approach when it comes to real estate.


You see, successfully buying or selling a home requires a lot of planning and legwork. You want the process to go smoothly, the right decisions to be made, and the best possible deal to be negotiated, right? 


After all, this is the purchase and/or sale of your home!


So, the best time to talk to a realtor, is, as early in the process as possible.


In fact, even if you’re just THINKING of buying or selling — and simply want to explore the possibility of making a move sometime this year, or next year, for example — you should have a conversation with a good realtor. Of course you should. 


A good realtor will answer your questions, provide you with the information and insights you need, help you avoid costly mistakes, and make sure you’re heading in the right direction.


When you are ready to buy or sell, having already worked with a realtor, early in the process, will help ensure you get what you want.


So, talk to a good realtor when:


• You have a question about the local or any other market.


• You want to know what your home might sell for today.


• You’re interested in checking out homes currently available on the market.


• You’re in the midst of deciding, whether or not to make a move at this time etc...


All the best.

How a Home Inspection Helps You
Whether you're considering buying a particular home, selling your current
property – or both – a home inspection can help.
A home inspection is an inspection by a qualified professional who takes a
close look at every aspect of a home – structure, wiring, plumbing, and
more – and identifies issues you may not have noticed yourself.
For example, a home inspection can reveal that a furnace will need to be
replaced soon, or that there is a water leak into the basement that needs to
be fixed.
You'll definitely want to get a professional home inspection before you buy a
particular property. That's why most offers to purchase a home are
conditional upon passing a home inspection. (The last thing you want is to
buy your dream home only to discover that the wiring needs to be updated!)
You may also want to get a home inspection on your own home before you
list it for sale. A certificate from a qualified professional that states that your
home passed inspection will make your property more attractive to buyers.
Many reputable home inspectors are members of a professional industry
association.
