Contrary to popular belief, there is more to selling a home than simply hanging a For Sale sign on your lawn.

Yet many people try to go it alone, sometimes costing themselves a small fortune, and the sale of their home, in the process. These people don’t understand the importance of using a Realtor.

Representing 60,000 brokers and sales people at the 40 real estate boards across Ontario, the Ontario Real Estate Association provides all real estate licensing courses in Ontario. It is this licensing that ensures Realtors have the resources and experience required to carry out the extremely involved process of selling a home. Additionally, hiring a Realtor to sell your home can help ensure you sell your home in the least amount of time for the best possible price.

While many people balk at paying a Realtor a commission, there is often very little financial benefit to going it alone in selling your home. As a homeowner you do not have access to the abundance of information required to list your home for the best price. Your emotional attachment to the home can easily cause you to over-value it, or your lack of understanding of the market can see you under-valuing it. Either way it is a lose-lose situation. And while you may know your home better than your Realtor ever could, their access to advertising, a network of other Realtors with buyers and sellers looking for homes just likes yours, not to mention administration and legal services that will sort out all the paperwork and fine details associated with selling a home, far outweighs what you might save by going the For Sale by Owner route.

My experience in the real estate industry gives my clients the opportunity to get the most out of what is likely their single largest investment – their home. My advertising and connections offer a bigger pool of prospective buyers, my knowledge of the market ensures homes are priced correctly from the beginning to sell faster, my negotiation skills help you get the best price for your home and all of this adds up to incredible value. Add to that the fact that you are likely too busy to handling the minute details of selling a home entirely on your own – from listing and packing to negotiating and financing – and it is easy to see why it is so important to use a Realtor.
