Buying or Selling a home: Do you really need a REALTOR®?
The Saskatoon Region Association of REALTORS® (SRAR) represents more than 800 licensed Residential, Commercial and Farm/Rural REALTORS® in Saskatoon, the Battlefords, and Melfort. SRAR members adhere to a strict standard of conduct, a code of ethics and bylaws to better serve the public. By using a REALTOR®, you can be assured of professionalism and trust.
A REALTOR® knows the trends. Buyer’s Market. Seller’s Market. Depressed Market. “What impact do these markets have on my home?" A professional REALTOR® ensures buyers and sellers make the right choices. A REALTOR® knows the local market and most importantly: a REALTOR® is objective.
How do I choose a REALTOR®?
Ask questions. “What can I expect from you?” “What services do you provide?” Simple, straight forward questions like these will start the kind of conversation that will provide the answers you are looking for.
My house is worth more than that!
A professional REALTOR® will tell you what you need to know. They understand your connection to your home, but they may have to tell you things you might not want to hear to better present your home as well as recommendations for market pricing. Most important, a professional REALTOR® is trained to see your home through the buyer’s eyes.
Jason Yochim is SRAR’s Chief Executive Officer. “The best advice I can give a seller in any market is to get professional advice when dealing with your largest asset. REALTORS® Know; Don't leave anything to chance."
