Situation After many years of loving life in Canada, family commitments back in their home country of Romania forced Iilie and Cecilia to make the choice to sell up and go back to the ‘old country’. Recouping every dollar of equity was important to them as the move back was going to be expensive. They saw no value in paying traditional REALTORS® expensive commissions and in 2016 they purchased the ‘sell by yourself’ program available from Comfree. After 6 months of languishing on the market, Iilie and Cecilia gave up and took the house off the market. In mid 2017 they decided to try again. They realized that the Comfree program was not going to work for them. However, they were not keen to pay over $16,000 in commissions required by many traditional REALTORS® and they looked around for a better, cost effective option. The flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors was the obvious choice.
Result After extensive marketing that included not only a listing on the MLS® System, but also a social media program and access to our exclusive database of market ready buyers, Ambergate Realty Advisors identified a high quality buyer from Calgary who was moving here for work. We managed to negotiate full market value, a very short closing date that ensured a minimum of risk to Iilie and Cecilia. And the best part? We saved them almost $8000 in commissions, (when compared to a traditional 7/3 commission structure).
