Are you thinking of buying or selling a home? Find out more about the real estate market and homes for sale in Greater Toronto Area.
Selling your home is complicated and one of the largest financial transactions you’ll make in your lifetime. A professional REALTOR® will save you time, energy and money.
REALTORS® work within a legal relationship called “agency”. The agency relationship is between you, the client, and the company with which your REALTOR® is licensed. It is a requirement for REALTORS® to disclose to clients the representation you will be receiving. This disclosure is usually done with the aid of a brochure entitled Working with a Real Estate Agent. Signing the brochure does not obligate you in any way. For more information about the agency relationship, read “Understanding Agency Relationships with your REALTOR®”.
As a seller, your REALTOR® will:
Prepare a comparative market analysis and advise you on your home’s market value.
List your house through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS®), a database of properties for sale that all REALTORS® can access.
Advertise your home, hold open houses and show your house.
Advise you on offers you receive.
Negotiate the sales contract.
