Even the most discerning buyer can overlook a deficiency in a home. That’s why Realtors who represent buyers include a building inspection subject clause in the offer. But what happens if the inspection reveals a latent defect? It doesn’t have to mean the purchase fails, but it does take skill to remedy the situation without jeopardizing the contract. This may involve a price adjustment or a mutually agreed upon schedule of repair. Your professional Realtor knows the correct dialogue needed to address the defect while maintaining the integrity of the contract.

Weekly REPORT Oct 15 - Oct. 21, 2013   

Last week we pointed out the importance of investigating property features you can’t readily see, like the title search. Structural defects can also be difficult to spot for the untrained eye. While this is outside the scope of your Realtor’s expertise, the drafting of offers is not. A professional Realtor will recommend inserting a subject clause calling for a building inspection. This will allow you to negotiate the purchase of the home, but not be committed to buy unless you’re first happy with the inspection.

Weekly REPORT Oct 8 - Oct. 14, 2013   

They say you will know it’s the right home the first time you see it. But sometimes it’s what you can’t readily see that is more important - like the title search, for instance. Many properties have legal notations on title: building schemes, rights of way, easements, etc.  - which restrict the use and enjoyment of the property. Your professional Realtor is trained to identify these notations and help you understand their effect.  Of course, the time to do this is before you’re committed to the sale. It’s just one of the conditions or subject clauses that your Realtor will draft into your offer for your benefit.

Once we’ve qualified the buyers for your home, it’s time to show and sell! It’s our job to present the home to the buyers and help them decide if this might be the right one. Of course, the location, style and price have to fit. But floor plan, square footage and overall finishing have to be highlighted. And then there’s the offer with its title searches, inspections, inclusions, dates, etc. It is complex, detailed work, but it’s what we’re trained to do and what sets us apart as professionals.

                            Kiosk, Trail Bay Mall Weekly REPORT Sept 24 - Sept. 30, 2013   

We’ve explained that Open Houses aren’t a reliable way to find buyers for your home. Professional Realtors know a better way: have the buyers find you. How? We know most buyers and their agents start their search for real estate on the Internet. And all Internet searches for real estate lead to the MLS. So, by concentrating our efforts on MLS, it becomes less about finding ways to find buyers and more about using existing ways to let buyers and their agents find you - or in this case, your home. The MLS and the cooperation it fosters among agents does this very well  - no other  medium comes close.
