Noreena and Patrick are the proud parents of very bright over achieving children who are currently going to a school a long way from home in the west end of Edmonton. They were driving them to and from school daily and the commute was becoming a real grind. It was decided a move to the west side of Edmonton was the best plan.
The big question was could they afford it? Money was tight. They had saved hard to come up with the down payment on this, their first home. Because their home was newer it had not appreciated and the suburbs in the west were more expensive.
They purchased the Comfree program. It made sense on paper. Here was a way to use many of the same tools that REALTORS® use for a low cost. Unfortunately, this program did not work. They languished on the market for a full six months whereas many other home sellers in the area were successful working with REALTORS®. They decided to try and find a real estate sales company that was a little more creative than most. The flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors was an obvious choice.
Stuart the broker owner at Ambergate Realty Advisors met with Noreena and Patrick and provided a comprehensive overview of the current market. He explained how the best quality buyers can be found and went into some detail with them regarding the psychology of selling a home. He also showed them how to ensure they received full market exposure and how they could get full market value in a timely fashion.
After a reasonable period, a suitable buyer candidate was identified. A win-win deal was negotiated, and a contractual agreement achieved. The Blanchard’s also saved several thousand dollars in real estate commissions.
