Selling Your Home - Why it Pays to Use a REALTOR®
Before selling your home, you will need a clear understanding of the legal issues and potential pitfalls. One wrong action could result in a lot of cost and frustration, which is why it is essential to have a REALTOR® working with you, as he or she will make the sale of your home a successful and satisfying experience.
REALTORS® use the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) to give your home maximum exposure. MLS® is a computer-based system that relays valuable information about your home to hundreds of REALTORS® and potential homebuyers.
Setting a price
Setting a price for your home is an important but difficult process. Again, this is where the services of a REALTOR® prove invaluable. REALTORS® have the experience to help you understand how the market works and decide upon a realistic price that meets your goals. REALTORS® also pre-screen potential buyers to make sure only those who are serious and financially qualified view your home.
REALTORS® will also develop a marketing plan to help your property receive maximum exposure. This will likely include placing your home on the MLS® system and placing a "For Sale" sign on the front lawn. The plan will likely also include arranging open houses for other REALTORS® and potential buyers, and developing advertisements and feature sheets/mailers to market your home.
Once you have accepted an offer to buy your home, your REALTOR® will help ensure that all the proper paperwork is completed. He or she will also make sure that both parties meet the necessary conditions outlined in the agreement.
Why working with a REALTOR® makes sense
When you work with a REALTOR® you will likely get a better price for your home than if you try to sell it yourself. Apart from the financial benefits, however, there is an extra measure of comfort and security that comes from having a REALTOR® on your side. Remember that REALTORS® are governed by a code of ethics and standards of business practice. They have also been trained and licensed under the provincial Real Estate Services Act to assist in transactions involving real property. When it comes to buying or selling property, using a REALTOR® just makes sense.
Jim moved to Osoyoos from Southwestern Ontario, with stops in Calgary, Nanaimo, Vancouver, Victoria and 34 years in White Rock. He studied Business, Accounting and Real Estate at Fanshawe College, Conestoga College and at UBC.
Jim's background includes over 4 decades of experience in Real Estate, Design, Construction, Sales and Management.
His community involvement includes 15 years of coaching and umpiring amateur fastpitch, and volunteering at the Greater Vancouver Open Fastpitch, White Rock Sea Festivals, the Greater Vancouver Open Golf Tournaments and the Tour de White Rock bike races.
Jim is a husband, father and grandfather, who has been passionate about real estate since purchasing his first home in Nanaimo in 1972 - and yes - he is experienced. After a few years of semi-retirement, which was spent designing and completing several minor and major renovations, and with the encouragement of his wife and family, Jim and his wife Mary, started Outstanding Realty in Osoyoos in March of 2016. For them Real Estate is a passion - not a job.
In June of 2018 Jim and Mary closed Outstanding Realty, deciding they wanted to spend more time with their clients, and less time managing a real estate business. That allows them to concentrate on providing Outstanding service to each of their clients.
Their goal remains the same - to ensure the client is number one.
