REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties through a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict Code of Ethics through CREA (Canadian Real Estate Association) and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge throughout the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reported that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again.
Buying and selling real estate is one of the biggest financial transactions of people’s lives. Transactions today usually exceed $250,000. If you had a $250,000 income tax problem, would you attempt to deal with it without the help of a certified professional accountant? If you had a $250,000 legal question, would you deal with it without the help of an attorney?
Considering the small upside cost and the large downside risk, it would be wise to work with a REALTOR® when you are buying a home. It will ensure that no mistakes are made throughout the transaction and will save a lot of time and hassles that you really do not need. In Addition, we know what homes have sold for in the area and it is beneficial that you know that too. We don’t want you to over pay for a property and have troubles selling it in the future with the risk of losing money. We are working for you.
