Do it Alone, or Use a REALTOR?

Do it Alone, or Use a REALTOR®?

The fact is, most people who try to sell their own home end up using a REALTOR® in the end anyway. Before anybody decides to fly solo through this complex, time consuming and financially perilous process, they should consider these questions.

Will you really “save” the real estate commission?
When buyers see a home for sale ‘by the owner’, they see a bargain. They imagine the REALTORS® fee going into their pocket, not yours.

Are you familiar with real estate law?
Complicated and ever changing, real estate law governs nearly every phase of selling your home.
One wrong move and an entire deal can fall through, or worse, a lawsuit can ensue.

How many potential buyers will you reach?
Selling a home takes more than just hanging a “For Sale” sign. How will you promote your home? Will you write your own ads? How will you use the Internet, knowing that you’ll have no inside access to www.mls.ca and therefore will not be able to post your home on this service?

Do you have the time?
Promoting a home is a full time job, and you may already have one. Will you be able to take calls at any time? How about screening the callers to figure out if they’re qualified to buy your home?
Not everybody who calls is even suitable to walk through your home, but how do you tell?

Do you know the market well enough to get the most for your home?
Lacking years of experience, the average do-it-yourselfer is merely guessing at their listing price. Often they set the price too low and miss out on thousands of dollars, or they price their home too high and drive away willing buyers.

What about your selling skills?
If the personalities of prospective buyers rub you the wrong way, can you still deal with them effectively? What about your own defensiveness when you hear negative comments about your home? Best to keep it at arms length through a REALTOR®.

Do you have the negotiation skills to keep a deal on track?
When an offer comes in, emotions can run high with so much money on the line. This is why direct seller-to-buyer deals often end in disaster. REALTORS® keep it professional and are indispensable when it comes to bargaining with buyers.

        I started my Real Estate career a few years ago when I was at a crossroads with respect to a career.  After considering many options, I decided to adopt Real Estate as a profession.  My decision was largely influenced by the experience I had looking for a home for my wife and two small children. I had a Realtor showing me properties who didn’t understand my needs that centered on having a large yard for my children in a safe neighbourhood for them to grow up in.  While he showed me a couple of properties that were semi-suitable, I often questioned if he actually understood the nature of my requests and even the area demographics of areas in which he was showing me homes.  This experience with a Realtor who did not understand my concerns of safety for my growing family is what ultimately motivated me to adopt this career as a profession.  I continuously work to completely understand the concerns of my clients while accommodating their requests when I show and sell them properties that are perfected suited for them.
​        I have a Masters degree in Political Science as well as a Masters degree in Journalism. I have had the opportunity to write for various local newspapers. My extensive history and experience in radio broadcasting and print media has led to my current position as a radio host on a local talk radio station in Toronto.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids.
