And the Facts You Need to Know

Many realtors will use nine common lies or myths as a persuasion tactic to help sway home owners to use a realtor to sell their home rather than selling privately.  Below we have taken each of these common lies and illustrated the actual facts or truth to help you with your home selling decision.

Click on each lie below to learn the facts.

  • Truth: Selling privately saves you money. To illustrate just how much money you will save consider this:

    Just cutting out the sellers agent saves you:

    • 2.5% Seller’s Agent Commission
    • +HST

    If sale is completely private, meaning the buyers don’t use an agent, you save:

    • 2.5% Seller’s agent commission
    • 2.5 % Buyer’s agent commission
    • +HST

    Having an agent doesn’t guarantee higher selling prices but does include high commission costs to you.

  • Truth: Our clients sell privately all the time – just take a peak at some of our client’s testimonials! We provide you with all the tools you need, including an entire team of private sales experts, to help give your house the exposure, pricing and staging tips needed for successfully sale.

  • Neither the agent or private sale option impacts the speed that your house will sell. Ultimately, the speed that your house sells depends on pricing, market conditions, the state of your house, availability for showings & questions, and the buyers demand.

  • Appraisers offer the most comprehensive pricing information.  With no personal interest in your home, meaning they won’t make money off the sale of your house, an appraiser will give you an honest and realistic price point for your house.

Several factors affect the speed of your house sale.

“Neither the agent or private sale option impacts the speed that your house will sell. Ultimately, the speed that your house sells depends on pricing, market conditions, the state of your house, availability for showings & questions, and the buyers demand.”
