Do it Alone, or Use a REALTOR?

Do it Alone, or Use a REALTOR®?

The fact is, most people who try to sell their own home end up using a REALTOR® in the end anyway. Before anybody decides to fly solo through this complex, time consuming and financially perilous process, they should consider these questions.

Will you really “save” the real estate commission?
When buyers see a home for sale ‘by the owner’, they see a bargain. They imagine the REALTORS® fee going into their pocket, not yours.

Are you familiar with real estate law?
Complicated and ever changing, real estate law governs nearly every phase of selling your home.
One wrong move and an entire deal can fall through, or worse, a lawsuit can ensue.

How many potential buyers will you reach?
Selling a home takes more than just hanging a “For Sale” sign. How will you promote your home? Will you write your own ads? How will you use the Internet, knowing that you’ll have no inside access to www.mls.ca and therefore will not be able to post your home on this service?

Do you have the time?
Promoting a home is a full time job, and you may already have one. Will you be able to take calls at any time? How about screening the callers to figure out if they’re qualified to buy your home?
Not everybody who calls is even suitable to walk through your home, but how do you tell?

Do you know the market well enough to get the most for your home?
Lacking years of experience, the average do-it-yourselfer is merely guessing at their listing price. Often they set the price too low and miss out on thousands of dollars, or they price their home too high and drive away willing buyers.

What about your selling skills?
If the personalities of prospective buyers rub you the wrong way, can you still deal with them effectively? What about your own defensiveness when you hear negative comments about your home? Best to keep it at arms length through a REALTOR®.

Do you have the negotiation skills to keep a deal on track?
When an offer comes in, emotions can run high with so much money on the line. This is why direct seller-to-buyer deals often end in disaster. REALTORS® keep it professional and are indispensable when it comes to bargaining with buyers.

Meet Rob!

 

I grew up and attended school in Vaughan, Ontario. I studied and practiced Fitness and Health Wellness at George Brown College after graduation at Holy Cross Catholic Academy High School in Woodbridge, Ontario. I spent most of my student years volunteering and working in recreational and family youth programs for the City of Vaughan. I have always been striving since my youth to be an involved, approachable and devoted citizen within our community. 
 
My customer service strengths are derived from my social foundation within the community, one-on-one clientele experience through my health and wellness practices, as well as an ambition to be a successful entrepreneur from a young age. After receiving my diploma for Fitness and Health Wellness from George Brown College, I began to set my sights on another passion working as a Stone Artisan for PVD Tile, designing custom natural stone and marble patterns inside creative, ambitious, and personalized construction/home renovation projects. The love realized in engaging with each unique project in different and constantly evolving areas within the GTA led me to begin pursuing a career in real estate. The rest is history!
 
I currently live in Vaughan and enjoy my free time among family and friends. I love to travel, explore, and shop. I am a big fan of soccer, and have been raised around the game growing up. I'm also a big Toronto Maple Leaf fan. My hobbies include playing sports, soccer and ball hockey, playing guitar, and mixing music. I continue to stay active with my fitness and taking care of my body. I love being an uncle for my nieces and nephew. I am always learning and working every day towards being a better son, brother, uncle, and friend.
 
I believe our professional success comes with hard work and dedication. I intend on implementing a bonafide plan specifically for your needs. This will help create a solid foundation that works as the building blocks needed to give you the best opportunity to find success in achieving your real estate dreams.
