There are several reasons why buyers may find it difficult to make a decision. It could be the fear of change, or the size of the commitment required, just to name a few. When buyers find themselves in this position, that’s when their professional Realtor can help. Our job isn’t to force people to buy – it’s to educate and lead them through the process so that decision making becomes easier. We carefully discuss their needs and give them up-to-date market information. We note preferred locations and style and ensure we stay within their price range. After showing them the properties that fit their needs, it’s often helpful to ask our clients some straightforward questions. “Do you like this one?” “Can you see yourself living here?” “Is this the one you’d like to offer on?” By asking these simple questions we can help our clients make an informed decision in a more comfortable, timely fashion.

Kiosk, Trail Bay Mall Weekly REPORT             April 8-14, 2014

If you’ve ever tried to sell your own home you know how frustrating it can be. You can waste a lot of time and effort showing your home to people you think are buyers, only to find out weeks or months later, they’re actually shoppers. Your RE/MAX agent is trained to qualify buyers BEFORE bringing them into your home. We usually meet all prospective buyers in the office first, before we begin any showings. We spend time with them, ask a lot of questions and gather information. We often refer buyers to a mortgage broker to have them pre-qualified ahead of time. Then, and only then, do we begin to book showings . This way we can streamline the process for the buyer, while only showing your home to quality, qualified buyers.

Weekly REPORT

           

              April 1 -7, 2014

We’ve been talking about your home’s curb appeal. What does it look like from the street? There are upgrades and repairs that can really help the sales effort. Cut the lawn at least twice a week and keep the hedges and shrubs trimmed. Walkways should be swept frequently and plant colourful flowers to add accents. The appearance of exterior siding is important, too. A new coat of paint or a pressure wash is worth the extra expense. Buyers always notice the roof – is yours in good shape, or does it need de-mossing or even replacing? Don’t forget to clean all windows and pressure-wash the decks. Finally, the front door provides the first impression. Install a new one if necessary, or repaint the old one and replace the hardware. A good impression on the outside will help to get buyers inside!

Weekly REPORT

 

March 25 – 31, 2014

First impressions can be lasting impressions. So, if you want to sell your home, it helps to put yourself in the buyer’s shoes. Walk across the street, take a good look at your home and ask yourself: What’s the first impression of the home? What are the home’s best features? Are there ways to enhance them? Which features should be minimized or improved? Your home’s street view appearance is a buyer’s first in-person impression, particularly if they initially spotted your home on the Internet. Although photographs can give a buyer an idea of the features the home offers, driving by the property provides an opportunity to see how the pieces work together with the surrounding neighbourhood. Viewing your home from a buyer’s perspective should help you identify areas of improvement.
