Hear What My Clients Have to Say:

 

"Jevin Barton made my first-time home purchase experience a good one. His approachable personality and energy made his an excellent choice as a realtor. He was able to offer valuable perspectives on properties when I wanted them which provided insight that influenced my decision process. When it comes time for another home-purchase Jevin will by my first call."

Daniel Lam - August 2017

 

"My husband and I first met Jevin in a yoga class. He still teaches yoga, but has also become an excellent realtor. Jevin knows the market. He presented us with a package featuring similar properties to our own to help us price our home. He was also able to estimate how quickly we would sell our house based on the time of year and prior statistics. He was meticulous about details and figures. Because we knew Jevin from yoga, we were very comfortable having him around. And the house sold in less than three weeks. Namaste!"

Jean Emmerson & John Kleefeld -  June 2017

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.
