The market is hot, why is Sarah as your Realtor® more important than ever?
Here’s a little known fact: realtor.ca is a Canada-wide provider of MLS® information, not the actual MLS® system. As such, information must be sent from the Vancouver Real Estate Board Multiple Listing Service to the provider and the time delay is generally 2-3 days. This is usually why hot properties on realtor.ca are usually always sold by the time you read about them. As your Agent, Sarah obtains the information first, not only from having access to the “Real-Time” MLS® system but also through her relationships with other Agents and homeowners forged over the years. Sarah's communicating with agents all working hours and is in the know of 'sleeve listing's that have not even been handed into MLS® yet.
As a buyer, what can a Sarah do for me that I can’t do myself? I have Internet access so I can look at properties anytime and make appointments with the listing agent directly.
Sarah is a full time professional and provides much more than just MLS® information. On average, consumers participate in 1 real estate transaction every 5-7 years. Sarah handles multiple tranactions each month and is trained to handle every contingency – not just the smooth transactions but also the challenging ones, where her experience will prove to be invaluable to you. She keeps her tools ‘sharp’ through her day-to-day business.
Sarah's primary job is to counsel clients on all aspects of real estate including area trends, government programs, zoning and by-law issues, home warranty programs, financing options and more. She knows the language of Contracts and processes documents ensuring they get to the right people at the right time. Most importantly, as your Agent she is trained to negotiate strongly on your behalf.
Thinking of making appointments diectly with the Listing Realtor®?
Going through the Listing Agent can prove costly. The Listing Agent has a contractual relationship with their Seller. The Listing Agent’s job is to obtain the highest price for their Seller. Buyers will do better having Sarah looking out for their interests and negotiating on their behalf, to obtain the lowest price for her clients.
In addition, arranging appointments directly through the Listing Realtor® is a time consuming effort, particularly if you are viewing multiple homes listed with different Realtor®. Sarah, as your Realtor® will not only provide valuable unbiased information but will also efficiently arrange mass viewings during specified blocks of time, maximizing the return on your time investment. You will not need to juggle a schedule of sporadic viewings from one day to the next. Utilizing lockbox technology, Sarah can provide access for you without the need of the Listing Agent being present.
Will Sarah only show us what's listed on MLS®?
No, Sarah will check multiple resources to find the right home for you. To start with, she will cover:
