What a REALTOR® Can Do for You

People often find the process of purchasing a home for sale to be a tedious task.  With a REALTOR®, that is not the case!  Realtors® are there to provide help and support, to guide you as you search for a house that you love.

The Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA)

As members of the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA), you can expect your Realtor® to be honest and ethical in the work they do for you.  Realtors® always follow the Code of Ethics in addition to a variety of provincial real estate laws.  There is no need to worry about the legitimacy of transactions – that’s what Realtors® do!

A Realtor® can alleviate the stresses of purchasing a home for sale with their knowledgeable background and thorough education from OREA.  And with ongoing training throughout their career, you can be sure your Realtor® knows what they are talking about.  If you are sick, you see a doctor, trained in medicine, so why not seek the help of a Realtor®, trained in buying and selling houses, when searching for your next home?

Realtors® are trained in real estate, but they want you to understand the process as well!  As you work with a Realtor®, they will explain to you the ins and outs of purchasing a home for sale.  You will be in the loop and up to date on what is happening at all times.  You can always expect Realtors® to look out for your best interests and maintain loyalty to clientele.  Realtors®, want you to find a house that suits your needs just as much as you do.

The Realtor® – Client Relationship

The start of your relationship with a Realtor® will involve establishing a few things; for example: why are you moving?  What do you want in your new residence?  What do you need in your new home?  Where would you like to live?  These questions are all part of the searching process and the path to finding your dream house.

Of course, Realtors® must take into consideration other important factors that are sometimes confusing for an individual buyer.  Your budget, mortgage, and other finances will play a part in determining what sort of houses a Realtor® will show you.  Again, this is all done in your best interests: Realtors® want you to find a home that you love and that you can afford.  This is accomplished with the refined negotiation and finance skills of a Realtor®.  If you wish, a Realtor® can even assist in weighing mortgage options and finding financing for your new home.

In addition to all the other benefits of working with a Realtor®, you will also have access to a vast repertoire of property listings thanks to the Multiple Listings Service® (MLS®).  MLS® allows buyers to conduct an online search of listings.  The best part about MLS® is that you can apply filters and refine search results.  Using Owen Sound MLS® listings drastically cuts back on time spent online sifting through house listings.  MLS® is a convenient and speedy way of finding a home that matches your wants and needs, and you will have access to it thanks to Realtors®!

Many people find the house-buying process to be daunting, but with a Realtor® it does not have to be so!  Call a Key Exchange Team Realtor® today to get started on your search, and try all of the benefits they have to offer.
