Commission… Do you get what you pay for?

If you are like most of our clients, you live 2012 at maximum speed. Between work, family, activities and your health, plus the stress related to phone calls and emails, you have limited time.

You wonder how much you should pay for quality service. The objective when you sell a property is to save time and money and obtain the best possible selling price.

Traditionally, during the sale of a property, you pay a percentage that can vary according to the services offered and only at the time the property is sold. It is essential to ask the broker to show a written marketing plan before choosing him/her, in order to better assess your investment. Some offers might seem clearly less expensive than average, but if the broker does not have a quality and well organized marketing plan, if his/her experience and his/her negotiation skills in income properties are limited, this decision might be costly, even if the commission percentage is lower.

Make sure that you get what you pay for by hiring a broker who can demonstrate his/her experience and skills in income properties residential, semi-commercial or commercial. A good broker will have the skills to maximize your selling price during negotiations with the buyer and will know, if required, how to organize an environment of multiple offers to your advantage while conforming to the rules of fellow broker.

The choice of a real estate broker is an important decision that will impact the overall transaction. It is crucial to deal with someone you trust, who will offer an adapted service and protect your interest while obtaining the best selling price for you … chose carefully!
