If you are considering selling a property in Ontario, chances are that you have already been considering the two most visible and common methods of doing so:
Through an agent – You will pay a significant commission to the broker for her knowledge and contacts in facilitating the transaction. Payment will be made once the deal is done.
Directly – You will make the effort of reaching out to buyers, whether through lawn signs or through the internet. You don’t pay a commission but may spend money in advertising. Right?
Yes, there is.
It is a simple, consultative process. You will be kept updated right through the process and material steps taken after your concurrence.
With Ratestead, you will get the benefit of the accumulated knowledge and contacts of Ratestead to facilitate the deal. At the same time, you will pay a fraction of what you would pay to the traditional agent.
In fact, we can tell you how much.
You will pay us only $2499.00. In relation to the price of your property, this would be an insignificant percentage. Payable only when your home sells.
If you are selling a home valued at $500,000 you can expect to save over $10K.
If you are selling a home valued at $2M, you can expect to save over $50K.
(Note: The comparison assumes a commission of 5%, with a 2.5% buyer agent commission, and our fee of $2,499.00 payable after completion of transaction, plus applicable taxes)
It might be simpler to ask “what is not included in the service?” as that will be a much shorter response – “Nothing.”
What you will get when you opt for this service:
It is difficult to put a value on expertise.
With the evaluation and pricing of hundreds of homes, our LMEs are what we call them, experts. They have a wealth of knowledge on the local market and are best placed to successfully complete a deal.
A pricing strategy for a high value product like a home is a complex task. It needs to be high enough so that the seller gets a good return. At the same time it should not be so high that it is perceived as being too expensive by potential buyers. Marrying these two conflicting requirements is not a task for the faint-hearted and this is where expertise demonstrates its value.
Our recommendations are based on logic, backed by a study of local market practices and conditions.
Where can you start?
