Situation

Ryan purchased the home privately just a few years ago without the assistance and advice of a REALTOR®. As a result, perhaps he paid more than he should have. Therefore, when it came to selling, Ryan needed the best REALTOR® program he could find for the lowest reasonable fee.

The flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors offered Ryan all that he was looking for.

Result

We spent some time advising Ryan on home staging and presentation tips. After he had finished the program the home looked amazing. We advertised the home for sale widely and especially on Facebook. We also used directional signage off the busy arterial road that makes its way through Highlands ie 112th Ave.

After a reasonable period of time we found

Situation

Maya & Petar purchased this home in The Hamptons just a few years ago & due to market pressure at that time, they paid much more than they were comfortable with. A change in family circumstances meant that they needed to sell the home quickly & protect their equity as much as possible. Their first decision was to list with a pure discounter i.e. 2% Realty. Unfortunately for Maya & Petar this did not go well. They reported that the service was very limited & advertising was restricted to just a For Sale sign & an MLS® listing. There were no Open Houses offered, no social media marketing & little in the way of feedback.

Maya & Petar realized they needed a different approach. They wanted to hire a full-service REALTOR®. However, they also

1.  Your REALTOR®is going to do the same amount of work

Assuming you pick a REALTOR® that uses a rigorous process to market and sell your home, they are going to spend about the same amount of time and money to promote your home compared to other clients. If your home is selling for a higher value than most homes in your market, why should you pay a percentage and therefore MORE than other home sellers?

2.  It’s a conflict of interest

In most cases a traditional percentage-based REALTOR® will offer half of their commission to buyers REALTORS®. This is a clear conflict of interest. The buyers REALTOR® works for the buyer. If the buyer’s agent demands to be paid a percentage you would be wise to question the ethics of the situation. What this

We had a client leave us this week. I’m always disappointed when this happens. Let’s call them Mr. and Mrs. B. They are such lovely people and we really enjoyed working with them. Unfortunately, Mr. B had reached a place in his mind where he could no longer receive coaching or analyze the evidence of market conditions that we shared with him. He’s acting from the heart not the mind.

The issue starts with his historical connection to the home. When the family came over to Canada from the ‘old country’ his father built the home. Over the years he had converted it into several basic but perfectly serviceable rental units. The home has been in the family since the 1950’s and he loves it with all of his heart. To him its worth $500,000.
