SELLING

Selling a home isn't something to leave up to chance. 
Without Linda, one of the largest transactions of your life could quickly become one of your largest regrets.
There are several things to consider: Is now a good time to sell? What's the best way to get the word out; what will the marketing and advertising looklike ?
How do you get top dollar for your property? These are just some of the questions Linda can help answer to ensure you're 100% happy throughout the entire process.

Selling your home/property is often an emotional, decision.
Helping you sell your property for the highest price attainable, within the time frame that fits your plans-from the time the sign goes up, to the day the property sells, my role as a professionally trained and experienced REALTOR®  is to ensure the selling “experience” has been as stress-free as possible.

Agency Relationships :   

  • What does it mean to Work with a REALTOR® ?
  • What is Multiple Representation?

What can You expect from Me?

  • Market information to explain the "active" competition and the most recent sales of similar properties.
  • A Marketing-Advertising  Plan geared to your property to ensure that Buyer's are attracted ( and qualify) 

Working together to have the property ready for  "showings" ( virtual tours and or in-person)

  • You only get one chance for "first impressions"  -inside and out! Understanding what Buyers expect when they see a property is critical. 
  • The advice to get the property ship shape could include delaying the listing for a couple of weeks while we spruce things up, arrange for a storage locker or rearrange the furniture; tidy up the basement and the garage...how are the gardens?
  • Buyers more often than not will preview listings on-line and perhaps drive around a neighbourhood to check properties out before making an appointment to preview.

BUYING

Buying a home or property can be evoke a wide range of emotions during the process;from excitiment to frustration to disappointment and back round again.
My goal is to ensure that you are as informed as possible. My job is to assist you at every step. Providing you with my knowledge and experience to help you make the right decisions for you. Any purchase should be well thought out and researched.  I don't make the decisions YOU do.
My pledge is to guide and assist you every step of the way. I am honoured to be part of your journey "Home". .

Agency

  • Who does the REALTOR® work for ? – The Buyer or The Seller or in some cases both. 
    Referencing and understanding the "Working with a REALTOR® " brochure is the first step.
    Next we discuss how we will work together and determine if you are a "client" or a "customer" ...(there's a form for that too!)

Pricing

  • Do you know what you can afford? I will refer you to Mortgage Specialists that understand the local market to pre-approve you...
    that said, the property you want to purchase must also "qualify" ...the lender will want value for the money being loaned

Finding and Buying a Home

  • Understanding your prefered timeline is critical.  Understanding the market is also very important. I am a member of the REALTORS Association of Grey Bruce Owen Sound. This regional MLS system feeds up to a host of other webistes including www.realtor.ca.  Establishing your want and need criteria I will then setup an auto send email so that you receive listings that fit your wish list 24 -48 hours in advance of other MLS sites.
    I can show you any property on the MLS®(Don’t hesitate to ask about private sales too).
  • By forwarding market information to ensure you are  well informed I will also offer comments to assist as you consider the pros and cons of a property.  It is important to take notes during the showings - I will provide a chdecklists to help you stay organized.
  • Not just for the listings there are a number of other resources available at every step.

More than just writing up an offer ....
       Negotiating and Finalizing Arrangements, not just Drafting an Offer

  • As time permits, I will provide you examples of every form with explanations that will be needed during the process.
  • I will provide you a “Draft” offer and explain the terms/clauses and conditions that best suit your needs.
  •  What happens if a concern is raised during the Inspection -do we negotiate or walk away? 

More than the Purchase Price ....
            what are the other costs?; after the purchase and before You get the keys and move in 

  • There are lender and lawyer fees, inspector fees, insurance fees (mortgage and property), the provincial Land Transfer Tax, do you need to do any renovations?
  • Arranging for all the utilities (from hydro to heating to water/waste water, internet, TV, phone)
    ...change of address for your service providers and or subscriptions and your Health /Drivers License;  the movers, insurance and others.
