The real estate broker: your guide to peace of mind
A real estate transaction is a complex and delicate process that requires a thorough knowledge of the real estate market and a great talent for negotiation. How about doing business with a real estate agent who does it for you?
When you sell your property, your agent conducts a complete market analysis in your neighborhood and determines the right price. It also uses the power of the MLS® system to give exceptional visibility to your home to more than 14,000 fellow members of a real estate board.
Think about it: to sell a property, you must be available to visit it 7 days a week. Your real estate broker can take care of everything: inquiries, managing calls and visits, promoting your property to potential buyers, etc.
After the submission of an offer to purchase comes the negotiation. In any real estate transaction, it is essential to have a seasoned negotiator by his side, and your real estate broker is an expert in the field! Whether it's financing, buyer qualification, terms of sale, technical inspection of the property or legal aspects, your broker will guide you from start to finish.
The broker also serves as an intermediary in your dealings with the many players involved in the sale of your property. Its strong network of contacts extends from the building inspector to the notary, the financial institution and the mortgage broker. In fact, your broker acts almost like a one-stop shop! Not to mention that its involvement guarantees you the legal protection offered by the Real Estate Brokerage Act.
Should you buy or sell your property first? Each option has its advantages and risks. By carefully considering the pros and cons, and providing alternatives in case of a glitch, you will be able to make an informed choice.
