What is a listing agreement?

A listing agreement is a legal and binding contract between you and the agency, or listing broker. The agent himself represents the agency and is considered a legal extension of the broker he works for (Listing Agreement: Authority to Offer for Sale This Form is a contract between a Seller and a real estate company that gives the real estate company permission to act on the Seller’s behalf when they offer their home for sale in the open market with the REBBA Code of Ethics.)

What about the buyer's real estate sales representative?

If you are wondering if the buyer's real estate agent gets paid, the short answer is yes; we recommend this. They will generally look for a 2.5% commission for representing the buyer.

In Ontario, real estate representatives don’t have to charge you a fixed commission rate when you sell your home. Although there is no restriction on the commission rate collected, most agents will charge a 2.5% fee. Depending on how much your home sells for, you could be paying several thousand dollars more in real estate seller fees.

When you work with one of the low commission real estate representatives, you get the same qualifications as any agent but at a much lower cost.

If you place a home for sale and it sells for $500,000, the agent’s commission on that sale is $12,500 – based on a rate of 2.5%. When you search for a 1% percent commission real estate agent to sell your home for you, the fees would amount to only $5000 – a $7500 savings for the same real estate service!

With low commission real estate services, you’ll receive great advice, very accurate home evaluation and the help of a professional sales representative throughout the selling process.

There truly is no catch, the only difference is the low one percent commission real estate service. We look forward to hearing from you soon – call us at 416- 417-0763 or email us at

Price it to Sell

Learn how to pricing your home so it sells fast!

casa-dinero-dolaresSetting a selling price for your home is a tough decision, but a very important one. Of course you want to make as much money as possible. But you don't want to ask too much and have your listing sit for ages without selling. Here are some tips for pricing your home so it sells fast, at a price you'll be happy with.

As your REALTORS® I will do a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) to show you what similar properties have sold for in your area. For a CMA of homes in your neighbourhood, or about recently sold or listed properties, contact FOR MORE INFORMATION Phone/SMS: 416 417 0763 Email:

Too High

If your asking price it too high, buyers won't be interested, and your listing will just sit there and get stale. A listing that sits on the market for a long time makes people think there's something wrong with the property. Selling a stale listing, even at a reduced price, becomes much more challenging, since buyers have already seen it and passed over it.

However, dropping the price is never a good idea. It makes you look desperate to sell. Better to come up with a reasonable price right from the start.

Too Low

Pricing it too low can pose problems as well. In a hot market, a low price can actually spark multiple offers, which is great for you, because a bidding war will only drive up the price. But if there's not enough interest, a lower price means you won't make as much as you could have. It can also make potential buyers wonder what's wrong with it. Plus, it could also mean you end up missing a key demographic. For example, if the homes in your area are selling for $400,000-500,000, and you list your place at $350,000, people looking in the original range won't even see your listing.

Just Right

Setting a fair price means you'll get more interest, potentially attract multiple buyers, and sell your property faster. So how do you set the right price? There's really no set formula; the key to selling is listing your house for what it's worth. To figure that out, you need to take a look at the market and see what comparable homes are selling for.

Put Emotion in Check

Yes, this is the house you've raised your children in, restored lovingly, or landscaped beautifully. But buyers don't care about your emotional attachment or the money you've invested in renos. What it's worth to you isn't the same as market value.

Look at Recent Sales

Selling prices are a good indication of what buyers are willing to pay for a home in your area. Just make sure you're comparing apples to apples. A brand new home is going to command a different price than a 20-year old house or an historic property in the same neighbourhood. Same goes for a condo overlooking the lake versus one in the same building that faces a highway.

Check Current Listings

Please do a request to see what's available in your neighbourhood and what prices are being asked. (Remember, though, that asking price doesn't always translate into selling price, so take these numbers with a grain of salt.)

Find out about expired listings. These are properties that didn't sell, and they're a good way to get a sense of what buyers won't pay for a home like yours.

Have Your Home Appraised

A registered valuer will do a detailed inspection of your home and local market and give you a professional assessment of how much it's is worth. Be wary of using the assessed value provided by your city or town. It may not be up to date, and it doesn't factor in value items such as appliances or hardwood floors.

Consider What the Market is Like

Your home's value is based on supply and demand and effect other factors too. Please contact me to provide you updated market statistics in your neighbourhood .and the city. Are homes in your area selling fast or sitting on the market for weeks or months? What are interest rates like? The economy? What about the local job market? All of those things factor in to what you will want to spend to buy your property.

Find Perfect Neighbourhood

Figure out if a neighbourhood is right for you!

Choosing the right neighbourhood is an important part of finding a home. If you love the house but hate the neighbors, or have the perfect kitchen but have an agonizing two-hour commute, you’re never going to feel completely comfortable living there. Your best bet is to figure out if your neighbourhood is a good fit with your family before you start looking for a home there (or certainly before you put in an offer). Spend some time there; take a walk through the streets, visit local shops and restaurants, and pick up a community paper to get a sense of the area’s personality.

Here are few questions that can help you figure out if a neighbourhood is right for you:

pic2What does the area look like? Do homes look cared for? Even in moderately-priced areas, pride of ownership helps keep property values up. Keep an eye out for signs of neglect like overgrown laws, houses in need of paint and vacant lots (which can be zoned for commercial use, or end up getting used as dumps). On the other hand, if an area has a lot of neglected-looking homes but you notice that a number look like they’ve been recently renovated, that may be a sign that the neighbourhood is becoming gentrified; buying a home there and fixing it up can be a good long-term investment.

What types of people live there? Families? Retires? First-time homeowners? Professionals with no kids? An area populated mainly by young families, for example, will feel very different from one with lots of college and university students.

How convenient is it? Figure out how far you’ll have to travel to do everyday stuff like grocery shopping. Where’s the closest gym? Dry cleaner? Post office? What about parks and recreational facilities? Being close to amenities isn’t important to everyone, but it’s a real day-to-day time saver, and can make the difference in the feel of a neighbourhood; a place where people walk to the store and the library has a very different flavor than an area where people have to drive everywhere they need to go.

Is it a safe place to live? Vandalism and deterrents like “Beware of dog” signs or bars on windows can mean there’s a high crime rate in the area. Keep an eye out for graffiti, too – it could be a sign of gang activity. Check with local police for info about crimes in the area; they’ll also be able to tell you about how active area residents are in terms of crime prevention and community policing.

Are there schools nearby? If you have kids, proximity and quality of schools is a major consideration. Talk with people who live in the area, and call local schools or check online to get test scores and ratings. Figure out exactly where schools are located to see if your kids can walk or if they’ll have to be driven or bussed.

How long will it take to get to work? Do a dry run of your commute in rush hour. Figure out how often buses run past your house or how far you are from a major highway. If you need access to the airport, is it easy to get there by car, bus or taxi?

What are the property values like? Your home is an investment, so it pays to buy in an area where properties will increase in value.

As your REALTOR® I will search for info on property values, necessary marketing factors in the area for the last 10 years so you can get a sense of how much they have gone up/updated market information over time, and will help you to make a informed decision .

What’s in store for the area? Development can change the personality of a neighbourhood, and increase taxes and traffic. Look for new construction in the area and check with city hall or the local chamber of commerce for planned housing developments, new facilities, new retailers, etc.

Is it quiet or noisy? Visit the area at different times of day to get a sense of the noise level. A quiet street may be party central once the sun goes down, and an area near a highway may be fine at most times, but noisy at rush hour. Listen for barking dogs, traffic noise, overhead planes, and loud music.

Finding a neighbourhood you like is just as important as living in a home you love. Good neighbors, great amenities, nice schools and cool shops can make or break how you feel about your house or condo.
