Not-So-Obvious Reasons to Meet with a REALTOR

So,.....when would YOU say is the best time to meet with a REALTOR. Me perhaps. Chances are, you would say, “When I’m thinking of buying or selling a home.” You’d be right, of course! Absolutely!


Also, there are many other good reasons to meet up. Here are just a few:


• You want a professional opinion as to the current value of your property, so you know what it would likely sell for in today’s market, even if you hadn't thought of selling. It's like a financial check-up, you see. 


• Here's a good one. You notice a home listed for sale in a desirable neighbourhood, and you’re interested in learning more — even if you’re unsure you want to make a move.


• You’re thinking of moving within the next couple of years, and you want to find a great realtor, that you can get to know, and trust.


• You want some recommendations for preparing your home for sale and especially determining what repairs and other work needs to be done.


• You want an honest assessment as to the state of the local market, and the best time for you to buy or sell. Sell first, then buy, or vise versa. Market depending. 


• You have real estate-related questions and you want to talk to an expert who knows the local market well and can provide you with answers.


There’s a lot of value you can get from talking to a real estate professional.  Call me anytime. All the best, :D


Chris.

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.
